My story isn't big but it is one. I grew up with a drug addicted mom and life was pretty bad. I moved in with my dad and started to rebel. I used to smoke weed and I got into a lot of trouble. Since I got my board, I have quit smoking and I get into a lot less trouble now.
My dad gets my addiction. I'm addicted to riding. He is so cool with it. One more thing, riding whether its on a skate board or long board it helps all my stress go away. Have fun and be safe. I hope this helps.
