What? Are you a washed up skater feeling left out?

This was an awesome story, I think a lot of people care and a lot of people still love to skate.

If you don't care, why do you have to even say anything, what was controversial about this story?

That was a lot of mulla and hopefully this young man will invest it wisely!

He should use that money to repay the city for the vandalism im sure he has caused, tagging, destroying public property. Benches, Rails, Sidewalks, and so on. If he doesn't im sure he will spend it in drugs.

WOW ... you are pathetic, miserable, clearly jealous and bitter ... maybe YOU should buy yourself some drugs. Chill the heck out!(And that is a joke by the way, you know, buying drugs. Do you know what a joke is or is that outdated too?)

Do you know this to be true of this young man or do you think it is okay to just destroy a reputation?

Unbelievable!

he's from a good family from Davis, his family is very prominent in Davis they owned a indoor skate park. That's how he got started. If your going to make statements get you facts strait. Ps he also owns his own skate company.
