Dude, this is going to be Awesome!
I’m terrible at blogging, just throwing that out there… My name is Kenton, and I’m stoked to be posting to you today. I guess that’s what Family does for you, they make you better or worse. Alright so a little background on me, I have been Longboarding for years… gosh… since I was 12. The riding on the board actually came and went for me. I don’t know how it actually went down. Somehow this longboard showed at my house. I think it was my dad’s… anyways I stepped on the thing. It rode like a dream, the wheels were so smooth, and the board was stable. I could cut and curve, speed up or slow down. It’s all I needed. It’s like someone had given me my driver’s license, and a set of car keys.
From then on I was hooked, it doesn’t help that Mason came around one summer and we longboarded the whole time. The streets in my neighborhood were just repaved and it felt like riding on glass. I would compare this to riding a wake board early in the morning when the water is completely smooth, or ice skating on a clean sheet of ice, or even for those of you who have done this, running around your house sliding on carpet or socks on a wood floor. It’s amazing, for those of you who are beginning or even moderately good, I would highly recommend finding a newly finished road and just coasting. Enjoy your ride!
Yeah so right now in my life I am going to college, working for a construction company and trying to figure out what I’m going to do with myself. I am currently living in my sister basement. Embarrassing but sweet. I have my own room, a place in the closet for my longboard, and a space in the fridge. So this is going to be an adventure. I am excited to longboard with Mason and to do something good by helping the children in Romania. I’ve got months of preparation and a cousin who is totally fired up about all this. I’ll be posting again soon. See you guys!
