Quote of the Day
I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.
I skate just to satisfy my own desire and not care about other people's desire for me to do well.
Although it's hard some days to wake up an hour earlier to do the gym workout as opposed to other skaters who just show up to the rink, I know that if I don't do it, my day will be much worse. I might as well not even skate, actually.
My whole life has been the skate life. I don't really remember doing anything besides skateboarding.
For relaxation, I like to figure skate. Being on the ice and spinning and jumping, I feel very close to nature. In particular, I feel very close to Newton's laws of motion. On the ice, you can experience Newton's laws of motion in their purest, most elegant form.
I trip walking down the stairs, but I can skate them probably.
I'm going to skate exactly the way I want to, create programs that I like, and everything will fall into place where it is supposed to.
If skating got into the Olympics, I would be tempted to hold off on shredding for a year and just skate, to make that my new goal. In that sport, I'm still the underdog.
The skating community is very fickle. And with me, they're especially fickle for whatever reason. Maybe I bring it on myself, but if you don't prove yourself and you don't skate consistently, then they can very easily write you off and bring somebody from behind you and put them in your place.
That's another thing, we made up games. We didn't have equipment. When it snowed, we would play slow motion tackle football. We would play hockey, but we wouldn't skate. We just made things up. I loved doing that.
I've learned some of the greatest life lessons from growing up in the skate and punk rock communities.
People would ask me why I was doing what I was doing - but I always told them that I just loved to skate. There was no other explanation.
If you go to a building to skate, or if you go to these places to skate, you're told it's against the law in some cities. It's definitely a bummer. It's unfortunate.
There is no age, height, or weight requirement to skate. It is good exercise no matter what your age is. If you want to be competitive, most start young. But, I practice with many adult competitors.
Hey, I'm like the Wayne Gretsky of the entertainment biz - I have other people do my dirty work while I skate around and get to be a nice guy. What can I say? I'm a coward.
I skate about 15 to 20 hours a week and also incorporate a lot of off-ice training. I take ballet and Pilates classes and lift weights with my physical therapist when I'm not on the ice.
I am always hurt, but what are you going to do? I have to skate.
I skate to anything with a good beat, anything that can get me motivated.
I wanted to learn how to skate backwards and they wouldn't help me and they went off and left me on my own.
Honestly, the best skater that I've seen who raps is Tyler, The Creator. He really can skate... He's legit.
I run a lot. I do a lot of yoga. Hot yoga. Which is random and sounds lame, but it has definitely made my flexibility and balance 100 percent better on my skateboard. I do that and a lot of plyometric, biometrics, and surf. I train every other day of the week and skate for an hour everyday.
I skate all the time, but it's silly for me to do contests when MTV is giving me a boatload of money.
I literally tried every sport and was miserable. Soccer couldn't hold my attention. I couldn't figure skate. I'm afraid to swim. So I did dance for five years. It came a time where I was getting a little bit bored with it.
I love the fact that there is now a skate park in almost every city, but it will always have a rebellious/underground edge to it because it is based on individuality.
I skate now for fun and to keep myself in shape.
