Skating was my salvation, it was so empowering and it was cathartic. It was just something which was magical and divine to me. That I had a feeling of “I’m gonna do this” and then actually feeling the process of it happening and then you let the board go and it twirls and then you feel it catch on to your feet and “Wooossshhh!” and as you land a sound, a click clack, a very specific sound that you hear when you get it right.
