I was very stoked about finding this out after DJ Tim Tim (Chad’s Older Brother) posted a comment on one of my blogs. To me, this is like a celebrity’s brother commenting on my site. These pro skateboarders are celebrities to us non Pro Skateboarders. I remember back in the 80s, the Bones Brigade were all celebrities to me…in some sense they were bigger than life. Also guys like Christian Hosoi were just huge. I actually got to meet and shake Christian Hosoi’s hand a couple years ago in Virginia Beach. I have to admit, I was very nervous…I idolized this guy for years….I also met Mike Vallely at a small concert in 2005 and Andy MacDonald at my local skatepark around the same time. I felt nervous and excited meeting all these guys that I used to watch on an almost daily basis trying to learn to skate like them, my idols.
So be sure to check out My Brother Is A Pro Skateboarder…I bet his blog will prove to be a very interesting look at what it’s like to be the big brother of a pro skateboarder who also skateboards himself.
