Three things inspired me to start riding flat again...a Lee Musslewhite edit, Texas Flatland Roundup...and RAD DAD. Honestly, he is one of the nicest and most sincere people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. A good person, through and through. Thank you so much for doing this E. Love flatmatters!

WOW! You ARE a star, Markie Mark... errrr... uhhh... RAD DAD!

Why in the world would anyone think you're too old for riding?! Oh well, as long as you don't SCRUB and break your brittle bones! hehe Just kidding -- you're like a fine wine...! ;op

Great interview and photos! Kudos to Rad Dad AND Flatmatters! Trick on!

flatmatters said...

@ tod borndead.. great feedback, thanks, stoked you like the blog! Totally agree rad dad is a great rolemodel for flatlanders, talking last night about how long we will be riding for, I don't see him stopping any time soon. And thats so great to hear, as well as all stuff he gives back to the scene, already an edit I posted today for example!

Rad Dad is a great influence for everyone.

Riding does not end when people think you are too old, it ends when you think you are too old!

Mary Dandridge says "Mark, you have come a long way since the streets in Seaside. Ride on my brother, ride on. You are doing a rad job! The interview was great."
