Tell us a slippery story.
One time I was in Sacramento with DAF Noah, and we went to this ditch spot. the ditch was really big, and it was filled with sewage and shit water. And we had to walk across the top to get to the spot we’re trying to skate. On the way back I was carrying my board in one hand and a broom and the other one, and slowly start to slipping down the bank in to the shit water and had to walk like 150 meters to get out of it
THANK YOU ?
the homies and my sponsors:)
