Charlie Cast-e-llu-zzo! He was one of those kids who hung out at the shop every single day—most likely clowning his friends. He’s now a good friend of mine and has become an amazing skater. He’s one of the only sixteen year olds that I am aware of with pop and style. Charlie has the ability to skate any obstacle you put in front of him. Peep his Pacific Drive video part and you’ll know what I mean. I don’t want to jock his skills too much, so Charlie, jock yourself! “Sniff.”—Danny Wallace<
