DEAN MINAGAMI, RESTON, USA

Who inspired you to become a skater?

My friend that is a fashion model and skater inspires me. I went to high school with him and he’s one of my best friends. He’ s living in Japan right now skating and making money off that.

Skating is a passion you have to learn by yourself by watching videos. No one can really teach you how to skate. You got to feel it yourself, you got to feel the ground and the board it becomes part of your body and that is what I like.

I have been snowboarding as well and it’s very similar to skateboarding, so I know how it feels to be skating around. It’s really dope.
