This might sound crazy but I realized this after I shot this photo. The term Table and a Dream came from this beautiful background of the hollywood sign and this amazing panic table, speaking for many skaters out there who aren’t from California can relate. The first thing that comes into your head being a skater when someone mentions california you think of picnic tables or butter benches. This picture says so much being a skater and moving to california and making a dream a reality. Many skaters skate and become actors or comedians or even musicians but the first love and passion is there skateboard. I will never forget the day I pick up my skateboard and took my first push that would guide me to all of my dreams. – S.M.

This week’s Tip Tuesday word is “ADOPT”. It’s insane how skateboarding brings you to the places you never thought you would be at or even meet the skaters you dreamed about skating with. I would of never thought I would be chilling at a little caesars in LA with one of my favorite skaters and watching the newest little addition to the crew Jonny be there and hanging out with us, talking about skate tricks and new skate videos dropping. I remember those days and will remember these days because I was once that little kid and being adopted to a circle of great people is a true blessing. – S.M.
“ONE STEP CLOSER TO YOUR DREAMS EVERYDAY”
I just realized what I wanted for Christmas. I never knew it would of came sooner then later. I dreamed about it since I was a little kid and now all of my christmas gifts came true. I traveled the world, Met pros and filmers I looked up too since I was little who are now my friends. I have my own desk and computer to edit my visions into a reality. I live, breath, and eat skateboarding. This would of never been possible if wasn’t for Manny taking me under his wing and believing in my vision. This year has been christmas for me and I am super thankful for it everyday. If you can take this moment and be thankful for those around you then some gifts under the tree and realize your real gifts are what’s front of you. – S.M.
MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS
This week’s Tip Tuesdays is something we all do on a daily basis when there is something we all want in life. My “WISH” came true after turning 21 and celebrating it out west. The fact that I pick up left without thinking twice was not only part of wishing it but was a goal of mine for years. I think your dreams are bigger then the world is if you don’t give up. - S.M.
This week’s Tip Tuesday is about the word “THINK”. What is the first thing that comes to your head when someone say’s think. Think about going here, think about doing this, or even think about living your dreams. The crazy thing about that is, I have been dreaming and thinking about it. This photo is the balcony from the hotel i stayed in vegas. This photo shows that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. So next time when you think, just think of the best and never hope for the worst. – S.M.
