Theotis Beasley grew up poor, dark, black, single parented, and in the dangerous Southern California city of Inglewood. But none of that is as important as his love for skateboarding. In fact, he devoted himself so much to the sport that he has become one of the best and a young icon.
Faithful to his New Love
Love is very much an action oriented emotion. St. Thomas Aquinas stated that “To Love is to will the good of another.” And love Theotis did.
Theotis, with the support of his hard-working mother in Inglewood and an older cousin, got into skating at the age of 11. He fell in love with the sport and skated as much as he possibly could. While others were getting locked into violent street gangs, Theotis remained faithful to his love and racked up valuable hours honing his new craft.
