GROW UP! - The Introduction
Hello everyone, I’m Luke Tanner. I will be writing a monthly entry for my beloved Exist family. Here’s little insight to what will be occurring here, God-willing, I’m alive from month-to-month. I will be selecting a topic of my choice to chime in on concerning the common ground upon which we all stand—skateboarding. I’ve been kicking a skateboard around for about 33 years now, and boy do I have a lot of opinions on the matter. My opinions do not reflect the views of the shop, more than likely, so if you feel upset by them don’t blame the lovely people that own or work there. I imagine you can comment upon my literary offerings so feel free to tell me I’m right, wrong or just plain handsome. I intend for this to be inclusive to all who love our shared pastime, and if you feel you know of a topic please run it by me as a suggestion. I can almost guarantee at this point you are better than me at skating as my Switch Tres and the like are about 25 years in the past, but what I now lack in skill I more than make up for in a mental library of all things skateboarding. If you think I’m a swell guy up until this point that could very well be about to change, or you could also be a fellow lifer that was with me through the shit, shine or otherwise for the past thirty years. Now as they say, let’s start the show.
