I saw this mystical guy, I kid you not, skate past me, he had… it looked like Bob Marley on a skateboard," he said to IMG's TRUTHSPEAKER YouTube series in 2021.
“I’m a little kid so this is like this, like, I’m starstruck right now, you know I mean? My eyes are twinkling, I’m like stuck, I’m frozen. He skates past, pops the ollie, I’m just like, 'Whoa!; Then he just disappears. Thanks to you… that guy mystery man. If you’re out there, hit me up," he continued.
