I think I was born with a chip on my shoulder.
That was until I started building my own boards, but that was all in the ’90s, so I’ve never really had that chip on.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t think about it.
If someone told me back in 2006 that I was going to be working at Nike for two years and have a board and go out every day with it, I would have been like, “Whoa!”
That’s what it takes.
I’m not going to go out and try to make a living doing what I love.
I just want to be able to do it and make a little bit of money out of it.
When I was first starting out, I thought, “I’m going to work at Nike because it’s so cool.
It’s like my childhood.”
I’ve been doing this for 13 years now, so that’s been the most rewarding experience in my life.
I think it’s been a big part of my success, too, as I’ve seen people get bigger, get better and get better at it.
I don’ see a lot of people having that kind of success.
It just gives you more motivation to keep working hard and improving.
You learn so much about yourself.
When you’re working out and trying to keep up with the competition, it’s amazing how much more you can understand what it’s like to be out there and to work out.
I have this sense of how to do things, and it’s really cool to get that perspective.
The other day, I had to walk through the snow and ice and snowboard.
I was kind of like, what is this?
I didn’t even know what it was.
I thought I was just doing something cool for people to see.
I’ve done that with other things too.
When people are working out, they see that and they’re like, that’s awesome!
It’s so much fun to do something fun.
And then you get to the point where you get better.
I definitely think it gives you a chance to do more.
I feel like it’s my natural evolution.
The people who come out of skateboarding have done it for a long time.
I can’t see any of them going anywhere.
So I think they’re going to continue to get better, and they’ll be around for a while.
I always think it’ll be a blast.
For the next two years, I’m going back to my childhood and skating and living.
I also have a skateboarding competition coming up, which is awesome.
I want to go there and compete, too.
I love that challenge.
