You know the air chair?? When you hit a jump for the first time and you’re not fully committed, and instead of jumping off the lip you just lean back. To a spectator you would look as if you’re sitting in an invisible chair as you fly across the jump, barreling ass first to the landing. Indeed this is a memorable experience though the least bit enjoyable. So the air chair is a metaphor for my life over the past few months, I quit my 9-5 job, leaving the security of a bi-monthly pay check and a 401k plan. I left my job in pursuit of freedom, freedom for the monotony of a desk job, freedom to work on things i’m passionate about, freedom from the title “weekend warrior” and best of all freedom to ride my boards when ever i want. Since August I’ve been doing a ton of freelance web design and development as well as launching The Produce a limited edition artist clothing company, which is working with artist to put their fine art seamlessly onto t-shirts.
SO my apologize for not posting something sooner. Dylan Warrens article from his US trip will be up this weekend.
Here is some brilliance from the boys at ATC.
