Keith Reese rode his first skate board at the age of 12.

He’s 32 now and hasn’t stopped.

The north St Louis County native believes the sport kept him out of trouble as a youth. It also gave him the courage to take risk and taught him the importance of never giving up.

Because as you’ll see in his story, he fell down a few times in his attempts to nail new tricks.

Rene Knott has the story.
