Skateboarding is life. Midwest legend Donny Diederich was raised in South Omaha in the early 1980s. He tells crazy stories about the old-school skate scene and also explains how easy it is for a kid growing up on the streets to slide into trouble—big trouble. But through it all, skateboarding saved his life again and again.
