Tony Alva is 61 today and still shredding.

What an absolute legend. I heard he was a bit of a tosser in his younger days but has subsequently turned into a rather nice guy. At least that’s what I was told when I came across this in a pub in Devon a couple of years ago.

I skated by myself today under September blue skies in a bowl that could have been made for me.Something my 9 year old self could never have considered for me at the age of nearly 56. It is strange the influences that follow you through life . I was forced to reflect that the original surfer /skater has been one of them.

Happy birthady TA. Keep on ripping and showing us the way.
