I'm A Collector V.2
Name and website - Jake Beacham of WelayeNE24
What is it you collect?
I collect all of my old skateboard decks that have meaning. Like, my first board that I ever got from my friends shop who passed away. They hang on the wall in our hallway.
Why and when did your collection first begin?
About 7 years ago, when I lived in Bristol, a friend of mine passed away in a car accident and I had his old, snapped board at my house from when he put his new board on his set up a couple weeks before the accident. I couldn't bring myself to throw it out and kept it, since then I've kept all meaningful boards.
Are you still currently collecting?
Yep. And I've just recently added the Real Bingo board to the collection. Currently the only board I haven't skated.
Do you have a favorite or special item in your collection?
All of them. Because they are all important.
