I remember the first time I learned how to swim. I was about four years old and My Uncle Bud told me to hang on to his shoulders and swam out to the first break at South Padre Island with me helplessly attached to his back. Once we got there he turned me around and looked at me and said ...You ready? He then let me go and I sank.
He scooped me up and drug me back in spitting up water and all. Most kids would have been scarred for life. That was the beginning of my passion for open water and the hard love trust of my Uncle Bud.
On this Christmas Day I taught my nephew Walker how to skate and do his first push solo. Right before I could high 5 him my Uncle Bud called to wish me a Merry X Mas which cut off my phone capturing the rest of this moment. I guess everything comes full circle at some point in life. #unconditionallove #living #skateordie #sinkorswim #unclelife #thegoodlife
