Just For Fun
"Skateboarding is for fun - that's why people do it a lot. Not to be on the X Games or the Gravity Games but because they love to do it.

"Some people say I'm known for my Mctwists but other people know me as that little brat who grabs his nuts or flips you off." - Trevor Andrews, snowboarder.
Fear and Motivation
"Hopefully somewhere along the line I can motivate somebody to be whatever they want to be in life. I feel like that's my whole mission is just to psych people to believe in themselves." - Rick Thorne, BMX rider.
"It scared me to death. It just doesn't make sense. You're still on your motorcycle at the height of the jump going 'this thing's not going to rotate around.' I knew it was possible. It just doesn't seem logical." - Travis Pastrana, motorcross rider, quoted after trying his first backflip at the X Games.
"I hate it when guys say girls can't do things. That is so out of my head now. Actually, that is what pushes me to be better. I just want to show that girls can do anything they want to." - Fabiola Da Silva, inline skater and X Games champion.
"A guy friend of mine told me skysurfing was sketchy, so it just made me want to do it more." - Tanya Garcia-O'Brien, skysurfer.
