I know what you mean Neen, youre so fucking spot on with those wise words, im 26 now been partying my ass off getting fucked up all day everyday for over 12 years, I skated for 5 years got pretty good but was always partying over anything in life and eventually everything faded away but all i had left was drugs and booze, it sucked the soul out of me and now im sober trying to get healthy and get back on track with my passions and accomplishing my goals ive held back because of addiction, thx for the inspiration man

200 push ups in 10 minutes.. u did like a quarter of a rep so more like 50 pushups in 10 minutes, still very good especially for warmup but dont lie to people.
there's nothing wrong with smokin some bud . if you have common sense, you should know if you smoke a whole blunt or a bunch of bowls back to back you're gonna be too fucked up to get on a board or a bike lol. not that hard of a concept

what's the breakfast fruit bowl he's eating? I need to know I'm trying to eat better and get in shape and that looks hella good 😂

Tbh, he should be looking for freerunning "athlete" role models instead of football ones. His focus is doing acrobatic things off of railings and stairs without getting injured, sounds like freerunning to me.

MMABeijing (10 days ago)
manager is not very smart to hint that Neen "realises he only ot a few years left", I think Neen attitude towards health is ageless and would apply to anybody, and i don't know if he fears the end coming, and if I did I would not take it on myself to talk about that subject, the fighter/skater does the talking

If Ray Lewis git you full force you would die .. you ain't gonna die hitting a 10 stair case it's definitely possible but getting hit by a NFL linebacker or safety you will not survive if you did your life will change lol.

Noah Witt (13 days ago)
I love this it’s so genuine how he wants to turn his life around. But he shouldn’t beat himself up for his past. He was young and stupid and that’s just part of living and growing up.

RAVEN FPV (14 days ago)
When you work out and stay healthy you start skating better and landing more tricks. You also skate longer sessions having better cardio, your bones/joints are much stronger, you can catch yourself better when you stumble or bail out and you heal waay faster eating healthy. Skating is a physically intense sport so being fit definatley helps!

I figured he was like 50 till he said 31. No wonder he wanted to sober up.

UserFT (24 days ago)
I got turned off by skateboarding because of the negative people around me during my time. Almost everyone smoked, drank, and did drugs. Some people even died if I remember correctly. I don't skate anymore, but to this day skateboarding is still one of my favorite things to do when I do find a board around. I always get people saying "YOU used to skate?" Fun times.

Man I went on a acid trip for a month at the end I rolled away from a front side lay back 5 0 but after I rolled away my knee popped. I wasn't able to walk or move right for about 6 months. Not being able to skate for so long was a eye opener. That's what I want more than being high or faded. I can honestly skateboarding has saved my life.

Seems like a ton of skateboarders become athletes after they turn pro. Most don't have the means I'm sure, as athletic training at an elite level can cost a shit ton. However, all the money spent on beer and drugs might have supplemented that. Love this dude!
