Forrest T. from Portland, Oregon!

I’ve gone through many phases of skateboarding, from park to street, I know the upper and lower limits of tricks and maneuvers, and I have seen how different people approach learning new tricks. I have a passion for the way I skate, and I love to see those around me find their natural way of skateboarding.
