    at least half the writers i know skateboarded before they got into graff.

    my first deck was a plan b ronnie bertino everslick with venture trucks and 48mm yoyo wheels. i put some cornball stickers all over it, paying careful attention to placement and symmetry. my mom took me to beacon hill skate shop to buy it in like 93 or 94. i then proceeded to suck for the next 8 years. i still suck today, but skating is close to my heart. sweaty days and nights, nursing bruised and broken limbs. that's the shit right there. skate or die.

    and i'm pretty sure i got into graffiti because of that haggard THINK logo.
