Experience California Dreaming Stories with Porchlight

Skateboarding has been a large part of my life and something I have enjoyed for decades. Back when skateboarding wasn't cool. I wore Nike's before they were skate shoes. Competed against the men and still do in the masters slalom events. Now my skate stuff gets displayed in museum shows. Life is funny. Working on another skate project. The third Board Rescue art show fall 2012 at the Santa Cruz Boardroom.
