While browsing the inter webs I ran across a few skateboarders and I watched one video and I was left inspired and saw someone who took the creative and free nature of skateboarding and didn’t just stop at tricks you “have to know” to be good, he saw skateboarding how I see it, not just a sport, something more than that; an art form.
I finish this blog with a dialogue Gou had with Wired
When asked about skateboarding Gou said:
“It’s an art, not a sport: a way of expressing something that I can’t anywhere else,” says the 35-year-old. “I like the creative, rebellious spirit of street skateboarding — it’s not about scoring points or showing off tricks. Other skateboarders of my generation say this, too.” He pauses. “But I seem to be the only one going through with it.”
