Thanks, Lisa! Skateboarding was (like being in the band) a gigantic source of identity, and pride. I had to fight for it, though. (literally) When I picked it up in the late 80's, in rural IA., I was basically the only kid in town doing it. A bunch of my friends started skating, but it was "not" popular among the "popular" kids. They called me "Skateboard-King." I got into fights at school. It was totally worth it. Before I was out of high school, I joined a team, sponsored by a skate-shop in Des Moines, and got to skate at "The Two-Rivers" festival, shoulder to shoulder with two skaters from Santa Cruz skateboards. In P.E. class, we did some weight-lifting at one point. I could push up over 600 pounds with my legs, and I had a lower percentage body fat than the smallest girl in school! I even got my favorite company, (Skull Skates, the oldest skateboard company in Canada) to accept an art design concept of mine, and actually produce, and sell it! There will definitely be more skateboarding content in the lownotes-sphere in the future.

For sure! I don't skate anymore, (my body just won't) but it'll always be a part of me. (The D.I.Y. attitude)
