Any eyes on me - a late-night street sweeper, some dude texting in his parked car, the homeless guy talking to himself - make me feel uncomfortable when I skate. Everyone expects me to do certain things.

I skate all the time, but it's silly for me to do contests when MTV is giving me a boatload of money.
