Surf and Skate Part II
Surfing and skating go hand in hand. Skateboarding was originally known as street surfing. Over the years both sports have influenced each other. I've put together a few videos, well two cards worth, that showcase a part of the relationship. There is something here for everyone who longboards, shortboards or surfs. Watch each video and pay close attention to how they ride and what they are saying. Yeah, some repeat what another is saying or doing but you will find something new in each. Jay Adams, Larry Bertlemann and Buttons all speak about their influences and show in their riding or surfing how each influences the other. Check out Bertlemann's "Go Pro"from the 70's lol! There's instructions on pumping and carving from surfers and a history lesson on skateboard carving from Paul Riechele III. I threw in some carver boards just to show how surfing and skating have truly come together and to showcase a different style of board and trucks. If you love longboarding whether it's downhill, freeride, freestyle, cruising, carving, slalom or hitting the pools or ditches you can perfect your style by taking cues from surfers and skaters who surf. Speaking of style, these videos also spend a lot of time urging you to develop your own. Style is what makes your riding different from everyone else and is how many riders become sponsored. Style essentially comes from the soul of the surfer or skater. It can take years to truly master your own style and make it look steezy. The key is to learn all you can from every aspect of the sport, mold it into what you like the most and do it in a way that makes it your own. Oh and you'll see some excellent kick flips with 46 inch boards. Save those for your "regular"skater friends to watch and learn lol! Be yourself, and enjoy the ride.
97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
