Although I was never a skateboarder, something about watching kids fearlessly wreck their bodies all in the name of fun reminds me of my childhood.

While having lunch in Beijing, I noticed a group of boys throwing themselves off of a steep ledge. Not knowing whether they were trying to do themselves in, I darted towards the action. What I witnessed for the next couple hours was nothing short of spellbinding.

To quote Jay Z: “I swam waters with Great Whites, y’all woulda been chewed.”

Zipping through the streets of Beijing on my “Flying Pigeon” bike, I stumbled upon an alley capturing the pulse and rhythm of this iconic city.
