Most know Cedric as a singer for bands such as At The Drive-In, The Mars Volta, ZAVALAZ, and Antemasque, but some may not know that he's an avid skateboarder. He took some time to share what he's learned since stepping on a board. 


7 things l learned from skateboarding


1. Your subculture is not immune to bigots, stupidity, mental illness, jocks, or homophobia.


2. Learn to balance the long game in life with the chaos of fun cuz pirates aren't forever.


3. Be obsessed.


4. Pain is fleeting


5. Fuck sports.


6. Don't copy the herd behavior. Develop your own cult of personality.


7.  Have fun. The spirit of play is of the fountain of youth.



Cedric is kicking off a world tour with At The Drive-In starting tomorrow, check out the dates to see if they're coming near you.
