- He visited his friends that were skateboarding. The first time he rode, he rolled off a table top. He begged his parents to get him a skateboard at 9 years old. His first deck was a Walmart deck. From that moment on he knew that he was going to skate for the rest of his life.
Biggest Failure/ Worst Moment:
- A year and half ago, he lost his drive. His mental state wasn’t good. He started screwing around and getting off track. He was pushing himself the wrong way.

Biggest AH-HA Moment:
- Chris Cole’s part got him hyped. It’s also inspiring to him that people can come out of nowhere.
- Don’t Quit
Tool / Tip:
