"Ultimately, cancer changed my life and my family’s life, but I have to thank it for that. It has taught me to take nothing for granted. It has taught me to be present in every moment, to feel everything. It taught me how to fight, harder than I ever thought possible, and I found an inner strength, stronger than I ever realized I had.

Dew Tour – you were all time. 2017 marks the first year of an all-time, all-rad friendship between Dew Tour and Boarding for Breast Cancer. We were so stoked to be on-site at one of the biggest skate contests in the world. Taking place right along the beach in downtown Long Beach, it was the ultimate community gathering for those who wanted to experience some of our favorite things – skateboarding, music, and art. Skate contests included Pro Bowl, Pro Street and a Team Comp. Let’s just say, the competition was pure fire with stacked style, charm and attitude. From frontside flips, frontside disasters and 50/50 to fakies in the pro bowl, then a kickflip nose manual, cab back tail and kickflip frontside lipside in the pro street finals, we were impressed from start to finish. Ultimate congrats to the champs: Kevin Hoelfer in Pro Stree

I think a lot of people probably wonder “why should I do a juice cleanse?” You might even think that only hippie-yoga people do it. And people trying to lose weight. But I have learned there are many reasons to be cleaning out your pipes. I started doing juice cleanses years ago when I lost my spleen in a snowboard accident. This was my way to boost my immune system with out having to inoculate myself yearly with a flu vaccine. I found it brightened my skin, re-set my eating habits, and gave me tons of energy after long winters of snowboarding and training. And after years of this routine spring and late summer, I now also accredit my twice yearly cleansed liver for helping to support my cancer treatments, and beating a stage 3 cancer. There are many ways and reasons to do a juice cleanse. A typical one is three days, and my favorite is K

Giving so much of our energy outward requires us to go inward on a daily, hourly basis. Coming back to the present becomes easier when you take time for pauses, micro-meditations, and mini breathing sessions.
