“I am the artist, the skateboard is my stencil and the world is my sketchbook.”
In Freeing Your Mind Through Freestyle from PechaKucha Night El Paso Vol.13, Jacob Whitt, a 23-year-old professional freestyle skateboarder shared his passion for the art of freestyle skateboarding. Skateboarders know the feeling of freedom when they finally begin the trick, the trick that makes our world no longer run in seconds, but in milliseconds. In that moment when nothing else matters, when your heart is set free, your body is moving and your mind is trying to absorb the myriad of amazing feelings that overwhelm, up until the trick is over - and it is then time for the next one.
