Snow parks evolve into wave parks and shore breaks as we change from mice into men. My tribulations have taught me the appreciation of my roots, and a reverence for the ocean sanctuary I play in. From the snow covered mountain peaks of banff, and to the skate park legends of Vancouver, to the pirates of skim that embrace the greatness of our ocean shores…project skates has been a family that has taught me to enjoy life at it’s fullest. Substance free, just let it all out. Rip that halfpipe like it’s the last time you’ll ever get the chance. Ten years running..God bless
