Even though he seems like he lost his contact lens mid-air, this is a gesture that I saw a lot a couple of weekends ago in the Red Bull qualifying heat with Hartford area skater’s taking off. This kid had more talent than most, but for some reason he didn’t win. I think it has something to do with long hair. Tony Hawk became famous while he still had long hair. I guess you can cut it any length after you become immortal. My next door neighbor sponsors events like this including break dancing and graffiti sessions. I’m glad to see it happening in Hartford.
