To avoid the curse of feeling old and push my own personal feeling of happiness I get from skating
We truly believe skating makes a better world. How do you think skating makes the world a better place?
Skating = life. Skating can teach a young person more life skills than school and politics put together. Skating teaches you how to learn but more importantly you learn your own way of doings things.
How do you keep progressing and reinventing yourself?
Always keep young friends. It helps. I try to be motivated but also understand the importance of good rest. And you must want to progress. Also a huge amount of self belief and be you move different
