"At the very core of it, skateboarding is a creative and individual pursuit. The people who are drawn to it, by nature, [are] prone to be more creative and artistic. ... It's not a team sport, and it takes a bit of creativity. That is why many skaters are also painters, photographers and musicians." -- Ed Templeton
