What’s up, fellow skater?

So, I personally experienced how detrimental a negative mindset and a lack of confidence can be for progressing in skateboarding. Having relevant knowledge and a skateboard setup that feels awesome can make all the difference. After skating consistently for over 6 years, skating 20+ different brands of boards, AND studying personal development for years, I learned a lot and turned things around.

My mission is to provide you with tips and advice that will boost your confidence so you can enjoy skating more and progress way faster.

To do that, I make skateboarding videos on mental advice (including ways to reduce fear and commit faster) and physical advice (including detailed trick tips and honest board reviews).

    Amazing video, my friend. Loved every second of it! I also love how transparent you are about your feelings with your audience. You inspire me.

    Skating saves lives. It definitely saved mine. I would have died for sure in my 20’a without skating. Now I’m in my 40’s. Thankful for discovering skateboarding.

    Great honest video. I really don’t have a better way to out it. Appricate the footage and the insight into you top 8. Sounds like NY was more your style than LA.

    dude this was awesome!
    really liked the music that you said you didn’t have a great view especially hearing you guys in the background made it a bit better!
    hyped to hear that you let go of a few things
    great video!

      @Manuel (Mogely) Herrera
      Thanks, man! I’m glad you liked it.
      It’s also cool to hear that you thought hearing Shawn and I in the background made it better (I was worried it would make it worse).
      Yeah, I just need to be more spontaneous consistently, and I know I’ll see some results.
      Thanks for the comment!
