We hope these quotes motivate you like they did for us!
“Skateboarding doesn’t make you a skateboarder. Not being able to stop skateboarding make you a skateboarder.”
“Its Physical and mental, you have something to focus on.”
“One thing about a skater, they never quit, so a skater to sum it up is awesome.”
“I consider skateboarding an art form, a lifestyle and a sport. ‘Action sport’ would be the least offensive categorization.”
“All skateboarding is, is putting ideas into action.”
Lucas Klein (everskate.com founder)
“Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of people say “there’s something missing in my life”. None of these people have been skateboarders.”
“For me skateboarding is a lifestyle, I dont really know anything different, my life revolves around skating, if I wasn’t a pro skater, I’d still be skating everyday.”
“I feel like I’ve influnced in the sense that if you want to do it, do it. If you don’t want to do it, don’t do it. But don’t rely on what people are saying you can do or saying what you can’t do.”
“It’s better to go out like a man, trying, than to play it safe and get second.”
“I’ll tell you one of the great activities is skateboarding. To learn to do a skateboard trick, how many times do you gotta get something wrong til you get it right? …And you hurt yourself, and you learn to do that trick, now you got a life lesson. Every time I see those skateboard kids, I think ‘those kids’ll be alright.’ ”
“Skateboarding teaches you how to take a fall properly. If you try to kickflip down some stairs, it might take you thirty tries – and you just learn how to take a tumble out of it without getting hurt.”
“All I wanted to do was ride skateboards – I wanted to be a professional skateboarder. But I had this problem. I kept breaking half of my body skateboarding.”
“I grew up skateboarding; it was fun. I didn’t think about money, I didn’t know how much professional skateboarders made. I just knew that if I became a professional skateboarder, I would achieve a lot and get to travel and do these great things.”
“The last few years I became a lot more into sports. Growing up, the sports I liked were independent sports, like skateboarding. I was really into skateboarding, and not necessarily team televised sports.”
“Hopefully, kids realize you can do anything you want. Skateboarding can be that gateway.”
“Growing up in Huntington Beach, you were either a traditional sports athlete, a skateboarder, or a surfer. I got my first skateboard when I was five and skated off and on over the years, did a little BMX racing as a kid, and then in my freshman or sophomore year I started getting a little bit more into skateboarding.”
“Do what you love and try not to look at what other people occupy themselves with. Most people seem restless and bounce around too much to focus or even pay attention enough to themselves to figure out exactly what they really do love, as opposed to what the people that surround them are doing.”
“My life path has been a blessing and a great learning experience. Skateboarding is my passion and I don’t see that changing. When I’m not skating, I love to surf. I’m open to the new experiences and opportunities.”
“I won’t quit skating until I am physically unable.”
