If you haven't already read or seen this interview on World team rider, Anthony Shetler, then check it out.
"I have a newfound respect for Anthony Shetler after doing this interview and hopefully after reading it, you will too. Growing up between projects and shelters, Anthony was raised in constant turmoil between his father and his drug addicted mother. Around rampant drug usage, violence and physical abuse, his situation was never easy, until he found an escape: skateboarding. He eventually was taken in by a blue collar family he met through skating, and with their support, he was able to finish off high school and pursue skateboarding as a way out of the hell he was born in. There are a lot of people that like to claim “skateboarding saved my life” but in Anthony’s case, it couldn’t be more accurate." - Jenkem Mag
