My pro skateboarding dreams are one step closer to reality. Well, kind of. I skated in my first competition on the weekend and I did okay. I didn't even make the finals, but I had some pretty sweet runs. In my first session of the street comp, I landed two kickflips and a heelflip, and didn't have any major spills. I couldn't land any of my railslides... but no big deal. I met a bunch of new skateboarders there and we spent the rest of the day skating, so I got a bunch of new footage to use for my video.

There were loads of really hot girls there as well, so it was a sweet day all around - better than hangin' out at home listening to my mom nag me about doing homework. My skating is totally getting better so I'm feeling pretty good about eventually getting sponsored. Who knows? Maybe some guy who saw me at the competition will call me tomorrow.

Oh yeah, and while I was at the skate competition, I got a chance to talk to Tosh Townsend, who's a pro skater with Element and Emerica. He was there to do a demo with some other pros. He said he dropped out of school as soon as he turned pro, and now he sleeps in every morning, then spends the rest of the day surfing, skating or playing video games. Nice life. Sounds better than getting a summer job cutting grass or serving ice cream at the mall. You can check out the interview I had with Tosh by clicking here.

Later,
Simon
