Rider/ Industry News:
Here’s some rad riders news: We just saw this inspirational quote from Ram Dass posted on our friend and lady shredder Amanda Powell‘s Facebook page and it stoked us out big time!
Watch how your mind judges. Judgment comes, in part, out of your own fear. You judge other people because you’re not comfortable in your own being. By judging, you find out where you stand in relation to other people. The judging mind is very divisive. It separates. Separation closes your heart. If you close your heart to someone, you are perpetuating your suffering and theirs. – Ram Dass
