I was practicing in my local skate park as usual when [tên #1] and his friends came around. When I first saw him, I thought to myself, “Look at that cocky look on his face! It’s like he’s the best player in the world.” I didn’t like Henry.
He noticed me and came closer. He said loudly, “What the heck, you’ve been doing this all wrong!” or something like that. I felt embarrassed and replied, “I don’t need your lessons, man. Go away, I know what I’m doing!”
He didn’t care. He grabbed my favorite skateboard from the ground and just … danced. We became the best bros ever since.
It turned out the cocky one was me. I didn’t listen and wasn’t open to new ideas. What Henry showed me that day was probably one of the best live shows ever. I had never seen anyone who had such great control of their boards, considering mine was not even the usual board he practiced on every day. For some moments, he was like flying and dancing effortlessly on the rail. He and I founded Empire Skateboard Distribution to spread our love.
