Lester Kasai and Ben Schroeder

I love this photo. It was taken by Ben at Stevie Cab's Birthday / Celebrating 30 years of the Half Cab at the Vans Combi last week. Lester and Ben have known each other for a long time. Lester and Ben had complete polar opposite strategies about handling the Covid epidemic. Lester chose to be super careful during Covid and Ben literally did not change his lifestyle at all. And now that Covid isn't as prevalent they happened to be skating together and are still friends. That is the power of skateboarding - you build lifelong bonds with friends that will have different views and life paths but your loving for skateboarding is a common bond. That's why skateboarding is cool.
