Years instructing: 1

Why he continues to skate: "Because I like getting better at it, I'm not really someone who plays sports, I have many friends that do it and it’s a great community. I skate because it’s something I can do that I'm good at, and not sitting around inside all day."

Dan Rusin

Years Skating: 12

Years Instructing: First year

Skateboarding produces a wide range of emotions; the frustration of trying a trick for hours get erased by feelings of pride and satisfaction after the trick is landed. Skateboarding provides me with a fun, healthy escape from the pressures and responsibilities of the real world. Skateboarding has also introduced me to new hobbies, educational opportunities, and countless friends.
