    Hey Kevin,

    Looks like fun! I found your website through a link from NPR and was drawn to this video as I'm a skateboarder myself. One question though, when you get going fast, how do you stop quickly? Do you drag your hands? I noticed you weren't wearing gloves so I can only imagine your hands get pretty tore up. Thanks for recording that, It was interesting to watch!

    Hi Anthony –

    Usually I use gloves, the only reason for my bare hands in that video was because of how slippery the tiles were. That said, I will either a.) ride the board into gravel/grass, b.) powerslide, or c.) drag my gloves. Cheers!

    Hey Kevin, Just finished reading Double Take. I loved it. I admire your courage, strength & fortitude. I could use some of that when I walk down the street with my daughter who is mentally retarded & gets stared at ALOT. Like you say, natural curiosity, and trying to make some sense out of what they see. Still, it's disconcerting, and not changing as long as people are human. Best wishes to you. Safe journeys. Roz

    That was amazing. You are so lucky to have been able to travel to all these amazing places. By the way… my son starts Kean College in August. Required reading there too. I enjoyed the book. You are a lucky man to have such a great family! Thanks for sharing.

    Dubrovnik looks like a cool place 🙂 and skate/longboarding is real dandy.
