♫I must have watched a million skate parts – I’d love ’em and then I’d leave ’em alone. I didn’t care how much they tried – their tricks would leave me cold as stone. But then I fooled around and fell in love. I fooled around and fell in love♫

It’s kinda like that one chick who, even though she doesn’t have the biggest tits you’ve seen or the phatest ass you’ve touched, still makes your loins tingle like no one else. Not saying this dude’s skating turns me on… well, not exactly. Just press play and see if you don’t fall for him too.
