Good morning shredders and Happy Thursday! Today's shredvotion is about Christian Hosoi. If you don't know Christian Hosoi he is one of the originators of pipe skating. He invented the rocket air and christ air. He was the king of aerials and style. He was also a great street skater and a member of the dogtown skate team. Hosoi dominated contests and was the biggest celebrity in the skateboard world for many years. He was even a major competitor of Tony Hawk in the early years. Unfortunately later in his career Hosoi developed some major drug issues and ultimately was sentenced to 10 years in prison after being caught with a sizeable quantity of meth at an airport in Hawaii. Hosoi spent 4 years in prison after which many people from the community petitioned his release including Tony Hawk. During his incarceration Hosoi found religion and got his life together. He kicked his drug addictions and committed himself to using his name as a skateboarder to help better other peoples lives. He now runs a skateboard ministry and is an ordained pastor. Hosoi is the ultimate story of redemption. He had everything he could've dreamed of, lost it all, and gained his life back through hard work, dedication, and focus. He now spends his time organizing the youth with skate events, promoting positivity and using his shred as an opportunity to show people a more positive road to walk down. He is a prime example of what a true shredder is. He uses his shred to not only help himself focus but improve the lives and shred of the community around him. I hope you all can find some inspiration in his story and follow his example of how to use your shred in a positive way. Have a wonderful day family. You have the power and ability to do great things with your skills and attitude. Enjoy the warmth it brings and never forget

Have Peace, Be Love, and Shred everything
