Come on, tell us a slippery story. several years ago, I showed up to our weekly BBQ. I wanted to skate the mini ramp but forgot my board. I didn’t have mine so I grabbed on that was sitting there. It happened to be Bryan Penningtons (he was not there at the time, he was coming back). I did a HUGE ollie to disaster and cracked his board. Everyone was like, might as well finish it off, so I did. He got back and so I showed him his broken board and admitted it was me. Well apparently I had a huge smile on my face. (I was actually giddy b/c it was Bryan Fucking Pennington who was a hero to me when I was a kid) Needless to say he was not very excited about the broken board or my smile and to this day will throw my board over the fence if I let him ride it when we are at the BBQ and you can see the broken board hanging up in his garage
THANK YOU ? My kids, their mother and I gave them life but they gave me a reason to live and Thanks to all my sponsors (Embassy Skateboards, Theeve Trucks, Vans, Triple 8, Geertsen Clothing, Roadkill Hardware, Wicked Audio, The Cassette Company, Milosport )
