Jessie Van Roechoudt #2.
"When I was younger I found a banana board and pushed around it for awhile, but I didn't really get into skating until I was in high school. The skaters used to pick on me and my friends until one of my friends said, "Jessie has a skateboard," to them. Then the skaters only picked on me. They used to hassle me, like, "Where's your board?" I had some money saved up, so I bought a complete through mail order. It seemed like it took forever to arrive, but I was so stoked when I finally got it. It was a Kris Markovich Everslick with Evel Knievel jumping over some cars on a motorbike. I took the board to school and started skating with the other skaters at lunch hour and just got really into skating. It was all I wanted to do. So thanks for being a bully, Doss."
I always liked the Rookie ads.
