Whatup, Christopher? How long have you been ripping for?
I've been skating over 10 years, and I love it more now than ever! Skateboarding has kept me out of trouble and made me to want to live a healthier life so that I can keep skating when I'm in my 40s and 50s.
Favorite spot to #CatchARip?
Any spot with a manual pad is guaranteed to be hours of fun! But sloped manny pads have been my main focus lately.
What's the story behind your winning post?
I had just got off work (building decks and fences for HB Fence & Deck) and drove to my home park, Dallas Skatepark. I went and did my normal stretches and warmed up on the downhill sidewalk. Once I warmed up I told myself I had to learn a new manny before the homies got to the park. The first one I learned was manial to fakie manual fakie flip out. When my buddy @jesse_stuhr showed up he said he was down to film for me. I'd already landed kickflip manny to fakie so I figured I'd try kickflip in and out of manny. Once I landed it I was hooked! I'd always dreamed of doing a 360 flip out of a fakie manny, so I tried it for 15 mins nonstop until I rolled away from it!
Any thanks, shoutouts, or things you'd like to add?
Huge shout out to @kobe_moren @jesse_ @mason_loosby._ @dllnwlkr @noel.reyes69 & @presleydunwoody40 for constantly inspiring me to learn new tricks and have fun with it. You dudes make me feel so young and alive when we're shredding and chillin'. Thanks for the good times and the ones to come, love you DBoys!!
