The Struggle Continues

ruben najeraNot quite a week ago, I received an e-mail from a friend that contained a YouTube link. This is pretty standard for me, clips from YouTube and other video sites frequently end up in my inbox for my viewing pleasure. This particular video, however, has stood out in my mind in a way that few others have. The clip is only 1 minute and 35 seconds long, but it’s a 1:35 that has kept me playing it over and over, helping remind myself once again why it is I love being immersed in the world of boardsports.

When I tell you that the clip featured our very own Ruben Najera, you’ll probably have the word “homer” come to the tip of your tongue. Oh well I guess. All I can say is that all of us who have had the pleasure to work with Ruben have come to know one of the most driven, passionate skateboarders, or any type of boarder for that matter that I have ever come across. And to put mildly….the guy absolutely shreds. He truly lives to skate, and he skates to live.

The clip is a Struggle Skateboards production. Ruben runs Struggle and is doing some really remarkable things with the endeavor. While this type of stoke and passion isn’t unique to only surfing, skating, or any of the other boardsports that makes our world go round, it’s very common to see and makes you realize that, for many of us, these sports are the loves of our lives.

So take a glance and check out a world class skateboarder with a world class outlook. And of course, be sure to suss out Struggle Skateboarders.
