This is Champ and Codee. Champ is 2 years old and he's the first kid that you see in this clip, and Codee is 4 and he's the second kid. Listen to Champ go down the bank on his belly, so funny.

People think that the place that I work at is lame. I've heard people say that we are training baby Shecklers and that it's the end of skateboarding. I disagree. Most of the kids at my work don't even know who Ryan Sheckler is, let alone any other pros. A lot of them don't know tricks and especially which ones are cool and which ones aren't. They don't care. They are into skateboarding for the very purest of reasons, because it rolls and it's fun. Some of the kids at my work are pretty silly and want to get good so they can get gold medals in the olymxgames. But for the most part, they're just kids who like skating because it rolls it's a way to go faster than walking. I think there is a lot wrong with skateboarding right now, so it's refreshing to be around kids who don't know or care about skateboarding as anything but a toy to have some fun with.

By the way, I think Nike, Adidas, Converse, Zumiez, Industrial, etc are the downfall of skateboarding. So don't support them, unless you want to.
