“Skating is everything, and nothing at the same time.” Basically, it’s everything to us, it’s our life. We won’t put so much into it and feel so strongly about it if it wasn’t. But at the same time, don’t take it too serious. Have fun, learn to let it go and not get to caught up in it. ‘Cause it’s is just a board with wheels.” Something I heard Jerry Hsu say.
