I love skating with this hairy skateboarder. He's always down to skate everything, never complains, and is a genuine nice guy. Not only a well rounded skateboarder, but also a talented musician. When you see his long hair and wild beard, say hello. And ask him if he will ever shave it all off. —Chad Tim Tim
