    I started skateboarding 20 years ago today. It’s been the single greatest influence in my life. It taught me who I am. It encouraged me to move beyond my small town and see the world. It gave me a passion that I’ve been able towards all other aspects of my life. Thanks for a great twenty years.

    This is my favorite magazine article I’ve ever had the pleasure of working on. This is a personal project as a follow up to Kids of Hate and Love. This is chapter 2 about coming to terms with a new life outside of skateboarding as we grow up while still trying to keep the skate dream alive. Thanks so much to Huck Magazine for letting me do this. It was an amazing experience to get closer to my friends and explore my own thoughts on this topic. I will continue working on the story, this is just phase one.

    In one day we poured concrete for four new obstacles at the “foundation” our DIY skate spot in Asheville. We raised somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,500 for the project I think. Still lots more to be done.
