Sk8ters - Gifted

You often see young skate boarders hanging out on benches or stairs. It seems to me they are at that cross road between childhood and adulthood. They're not quite ready to give up the thrill of skatboarding and yet not ready to settle into a job/career. I always admired their skill and daring as they race through town - it's as if they were born with wheels on their feet. The modern day version of Mercury.
