Struggles of Skating: Junior Gabe Byington performs a skate trick on August 22, 2021 at his local skate park. Byington practiced this trick multiple times just so he could get it right. “Staying committed is a struggle. You can fall very hard trying a stair set and be too scared to hit it again or spend a month trying to land a trick and seem to make no progress. Staying committed is definitely the biggest struggle I’ve personally had,” Byington said.
