Hey, what's going on? My name' Kerry Getz. I'm a professional skateboarder from New Jersey, Philadelphia area. I've been skating for about 27 years now, pro for about 16. My sponsors are Habitat Skateboards, Habitat Shoes, Dave's Trucks, and Mob grip tape. Back in the early 2000s I was in the X-Games a few times. I won gold in Philadelphia, I won Tampa Pro back in 2000. Contest is just a bonus to being a pro and, you know, winning extra cash and stuff like that to buy like houses and fancy cars and all that stuff.
So if you're good at contests you should definitely enter them. I am here with Bam Margera and we're going to teach you some tricks, some of the basics that you want to start out on before you get into the heavier hitting tricks. So definitely get all of these tricks we're about to teach you unlocked before you step up to anything else. And you just want to feel real comfortable on your board and get the balance down before you start going crazy on down stairs and stuff like that.
So don't jump down ten stairs until you learn all these tricks we're about to teach you. I've been skating for a long, long time. I went through the basics of learning kick flips in the grass and stuff like that so don't get frustrated, just take your time. And it's something you can't learn in two years so definitely just stick with it though.
