The guys today are just too awesome and they knock out all of us oldtimers away! They kinda make me embarrassed to call myself a Freestyler, but these guys who are too good -- their LIFE is ALL FREESTYLE!!!
They also end up breaking too many bones by the age of 30+. I met a former midschool Pro at the Chicago Lakefront Wilson Skatepark and he was soo disabled!
I watched an edit being filmed at a local skatepark a few weeks ago. The guy was crazy good. But I still watched him eat it big time repeatedly on several tricks before he nailed the one perfect one for the edit. It was then that I realized that getting to his level required an insane tolerance for pain and injury. Since then, I've been a lot happier with my skatepark mediocrity.
