I liked to think I helped progress flatland skimboarding through:
-building some of the first constructed rails in Sacramento
-building the zen garden for friends to ride when the river was unskimmable
-giving away dozens of boards and swag
-traveling to spread the word
-assisting lon and mark on competitions
-always being cool to groms and giving them wisdom about riding and the sport itself
-spending lots of money on shirts, stickers, web, rails, media equipment, etc.
-internet exposure: inlandskim.com, tons of emails, vids, pictures, etc.
-keeping the river clean
and some other stuff
