When I started skating, it was very intimidating. You were judged on style and aggression, but tricks were mostly considered novelties. I was skinny and small for my age, so aggression & style seemed intangible. New tricks, however, were inspiring to me. And @eddieelguera was way ahead of everyone in that respect, with very little acclaim. I studied his moves with awe and envy, aspiring to learn them against all odds. Eddie never stopped skating through the years and can still do tricks that most vert skaters only dream of. It was an honor to skate with him yesterday in front of arguably the biggest crowd we've ever had, and I hope the recognition helps to validate his contributions to skateboarding through the years. Thank you, El Gato.
