long & lean skate machine lives and works in right here in paradise
Santa Cruz, CA and has one of those rare jobs to die for; Mike is
shop and team manager for Bill's Wheels, a local retail skateshop.
Shortly after we opened Mike wrote a super supportive letter to
Real Skate and I knew right then he must be a hunk sight unseen!
I don't know if pools were named after him, but probably.
When I went to the hunk-shoot Mike and the shop team
were on their way down to do a demo at Freedom Elementary School.
Since Freedom School is my alma mater, (plus, it makes me look cool
to be chillin with sponsored skaters), I tagged along with the team
and you'll see a little article on that later. Bill's does some
good things for south county kids, thumbs up Bill!
Anyway back to Mike. He is 21 and licensed to drink!
I don't know if he does or not, but from what I understand this
highly responsible working class citizen may possibly be quite crazy
underneath this wholesome facade he portrays! Mike is into geetar,
both Fender electric and classical acoustic. He is into digital
video, filming, and editing. He loves to entertain guests at his
home (probably the classically minded listening to Beethoven and
sipping Chardonnay; my favorite).
Mike would like to give a shout out to one of the special
ladies in his life; she'll know who she is "Hi Mom!"
Seriously, Mike thank you for letting Real Skate infiltrate
into your personal life a bit, you are a good sport and a total
Say hey to Mike
