Mike Anderson is more of a man than most. Barely 21, newly a father and now Pro. As befits his personality, no star studded free booze mash up to celebrate but a return home to give props and thanks to the skateshop and community that raised him. Among friends and family and with thanks to Five Points Skateshop, Krooked, Thunder, Spitfire, Matix and éS. Mike signed autographs, posed for autographs, received many a hug and kept his grin maintained.
Cake lovingly made.
