Skateboarding is Not for Everyone

Saw this on PetaPixel's site. So this mom takes a photo of her kid on the first day of school every day for 12 years. Can you tell when the kid started "skating?" That being in quotes because you can't really tell who skates by the feets anymore these days. Looks like a pair of Half Cabs came in at year seven and by year 10 he must have been pretty confused with wearing Fallens and being a bowl troll as evidenced by those rabbit ear laces dragging the ground like caveman knuckles. Anyway, this kid not only needs some pants, but if you look at the end, you can use the feets to make the fair judgment call that he quit skating by that time. Or started longboarding. Same difference. It's a sad pattern that I'm afraid too many kids go through. Oh well, in 10 years he'll be telling glory days stories about how he used to skate then going modern day mid-life crisis. Don't ever stop, kids. Skateboarding is the fountain of youth physically and mentally. This kid in 12th grade is already older than your dad.
