Emily and I got up at about 6:30 Friday morning to make the 3 hour drive back home from Canaan. Marc had already called by the time we got home. The demo team is a loose knit conglomerate of local riders and those who are available to make it usually do. He had called to make sure I would be there since Em and I were MIA in the mountains. We were committed to making it back in time to take part in this one. The team was doing a demo for elementary school students who could not have been more stoked at what they saw. Friday's demo team consisted of Marc and his wife Melissa, Trace, and myself on skateboards and Marc's friend Kevin showed up with a grip of unicycles. So you have four skaters and Marc and Melissa pulling double duty riding unicycles with Kevin. The kids absolutely enjoyed this demo to say the least. Check out the video to see how it all went down.
“I don’t want to see a Frito’s commercial with a skateboarder on it. It’s not in the spirit of skateboarding. We’re not supposed to be in the limelight. We’re supposed to be the scuttlebutt. We’re not supposed to be heroes. We’re supposed to be zeroes. If we look good, we look bad.”
