Life Lesson Learned From Skateboarding: Don’t burn any bridges.
Kurt Hayashi told me about Nick Palmquist after hearing of my solicitations of finder’s fees out to anyone who found me the next “big guy.” I was posting up the signs with my staple gun downtown when Kurt called and said, “I have someone you might like to meet.”
After some moments of thought, I answered back, “When and where?”
He said, “Now and here.” And it’s been on ever since. Hayashi made out like a bandit on that one.-Remy Stratton
