Every once in a while, you come across a person who clearly walks to the beat of a different drum; a person who lives their life to the fullest. And all those who spend time with them know what a gift those precious moments truly are. Then there’re people like Dave Duren – the kind of guy who thinks leaving in the middle of the night for a nice desolate spot in the desert, where he could freak himself out by plotting strategic warfare and the end of the world, would be the perfect way to spend an evening.

I’ve seen him polish a light switch clean at 8:30 a.m. for no reason, and I’ve heard him record the most amazing songs on his guitar at night. Dave comes from a little town no one outside of Florida has ever heard of, yet his skateboarding skills have stood out for years, and thus kids in the most distant stretches of the world know his name.

Word up. – Jeff Davis
