a common bond…

skateboarding has brought me a lot of joy in life… it’s taught me many important life lessons… it’s helped me meet my best friends in the world… it’s helped me get to know perfect strangers… it’s brought me together with people i never thought i would meet otherwise… the common bond skateboarding gives us is about as powerful as anything i have ever experienced…

i have been tour-guiding a guy from Germany around CO skateparks… besides the fact that he is from another country and sees the world much differently than myself, we immediately respected one another for being a skateboarder… realizing that we have committed many years to it and understanding that it’s in our blood connects us…

just sitting around and watching skate videos was another way to connect… talking about what type of shredding we prefer or get hyped on was dope… although his English was not perfect, we always knew what the other person meant… skateboarding helped us understand one another on a deeper level that most people will never be able to comprehend…

these deeper connections we build through skateboarding are powerful and special… there are so many different facets and levels of interaction that i did not touch on, but we engage in an amazingly social lifestyle (without the internet)… it amazes me every time i get out and shred…

so next time you are out crushing shit, meet a fellow-skateboarding-stranger… we are all connected…

peace and noLove…
