He has experienced some major injuries over the years, and understands that there is a shelf life for most skateboard champions. In 2001 I was really happy with my skating & I felt like I had a good shot at winning X games but I broke my wrist like a week before. He understands that what he has accomplished, very few (if any) in the world could do. I remember flying to Philly & telling myself my wrist wasn’t broken, just sprained. During the day I run service calls, driving around from city to city.I always carry Koog bars to get me through the day, they provide me with the nutrients and energy that I need.
PLG stands alone in 5th overall on the all-time XG medal count and second on the active list.
