Former Doctor Turned San Diego Boardwalk Skater

This Inspirational Video Will Make You Reassess Your Life

Yes, you're alive, but are you truly living? Perhaps we can all learn a little something from former neurologist Dr. John Kitchin, who now goes by the name Slomo. Before his transformation into San Diego boardwalk skating fixture, Slomo said he was the "typical, institutionalized, educated Western man." He drove a BMW, worked long hours, and did everything society expects out of someone like him. Some advice from an elderly man took root in his mind as he was building up his career: "Do what you want to!"

, the producer of the film, mentioned that he wondered, "was this guy nuts, or was he on to something?" After watching the clip below and seeing the wide grin on Slomo's face, you'll probably agree that he's crazy like a fox.

"Everybody has the capacity to dream up and believe anything he wants to." — Slomo
