Jimmy wants to be a pro

Jimmy wants to be a pro

Once upon a time in the small town of Deckville, there was a young fingerboarder named Jimmy. Jimmy spent every waking moment practicing on his miniature skateboard, flipping and grinding with the tips of his fingers. His dream? To become a professional fingerboarder.

Jimmy’s room was adorned with posters of fingerboarding legends, and his shelves were filled with an array of colorful decks, each with its own unique grip tape design. He had fingerboards for every occasion – even a special one that sprouted chia seeds, which he fondly called his “Chia Deck.”

One sunny afternoon, as Jimmy was perfecting his kickflips, an old-timer named Tony Fingerflip walked by and stopped to watch. Tony had been a pro fingerboarder back in the day and saw a spark in Jimmy.

“You’ve got talent, kid,” Tony said with a nod. “But remember, fingerboarding isn’t just about becoming a pro. It’s about having fun and sharing that joy with others.”

Jimmy took Tony’s words to heart. He started to focus less on the goal of turning pro and more on the sheer enjoyment of the sport. He began to fingerboard everywhere – at the park, at school, even at the local retirement home, where he taught the elderly how to perform ollies and shuvits.

Word of Jimmy’s fingerboarding spread throughout Deckville, and soon enough, he became a local hero. Not because he won competitions or earned sponsorships, but because he brought the community together with his passion and reminded everyone that at its core, fingerboarding was about fun, creativity, and friendship.

And so, Jimmy the fingerboarder realized that being a pro wasn’t about titles or fame; it was about loving what you do and sharing that love with the world. With a smile on his face and a fingerboard under his fingers, Jimmy knew he was exactly where he was meant to be.

The end.
