This is a cautionary tale because shortly after graciously accepting his awesomeness. Mako disappeared from skateboarding forever. Looking for Mako online brings up a long forgotten team page where his sponsors are listed as: Darkstar wheels, Indepentent trucks, Lost clothing, Ogio bags, Globe shoes, Ironhorse griptape, Capix, GroundZero. When you would need a bag sponsor is beyond me. One thing we will never forget though is his fattie to flattie tre flip benihana. So a message to kids when self cheering, reign it in.
