… except for don’t talk to the press.
If your going to talk to the press don’t try to sound cool. Just memorize a couple lines from an academic journal about skateboarder’s creative use of space. Tell them about how NYC made a compromise with skateboarders regarding the Brooklyn Banks.
Look up some things Dr. Ocean Howell (yea the guy who rode for H-Street and Birdhouse) has written and just parrot what he says. Academia is very sympathetic to skateboarders and our use of space…so, go on google scholar and read a few articles, and if anyone ever asks you something you can repeat something that sounds fancy.
