Where do you get your inspiration?

I think I get it from various aspects in life. It's inspiring just seeing other people pushing themselves and making stuff happen. Even if it’s just a local kid down the skatepark trying to learn new stuff it will always create a good vibe and everyone will be having a good time and riding! Also amazing video parts which people have put their all into. It always shows - nothing is worth doing if it’s easy - and makes you want to do the same. That inspires me.
