Two tricks from 2001 X-Games best trick event. I only made a few heelflip bigspin leins through the years because of the guaranteed whiplash they incur.
Also: more skate events should have German commentators just to hear them say trick names
I recently partnered up with @MINIUSA & @THF to help a St. Louis Community where we expanded a creative urban space for a skatepark in a challenged area.

Thanks to @Triple8NYC for finally bringing together form & function in a proper skate helmet. I can honestly say I've never worn something so comfortable and felt so safe at the same time (which is how I pulled off this run)
Thrasher Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Skater of the Year” like 1990, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said I'm probably too old and took a pass. But you can vote for the REAL nominees at thrashermagazine.com
Thanks to everyone that has supported me in this surreal life of skateboarding, adventure and philanthropy (especially my ever-patient family). I sincerely hope you can spend your day surrounded by loved ones, fun stories... and good food.
