<p><b>Andy</b>: There’s going to be a 40 for 40, now it’s going to be a 43 for 43</p> <p><b>Kanten</b>: Andy started skating in 86 when he was 13, I started… I feel like this is a Jeremy Klein / ron chapman thing… he’s 18, I’m 18, um, ya, he was 13 I was 13, I started same year same age. We both turned pro in 1993, we both rode for the same board company and had an ad at the same time for our first time ever having an ad published. I think it’s just weird now how full circle that many years later we’re working together creating skate parks. It’s just kinda crazy. And the owner of that company who put the ad out is actually right down the way here at the skate park, and his son is ripping the park. It’s like full circle.</p> <p><b>Off-camera</b>: You mean that guy right there?</p> <p><b>Kanten</b>: Ya, he was our team manager.</p> <p><b>Andy</b>: That was that slow J Lee jump.</p>
