Slomo

The Man Who Skated Right Off the Grid

Dr. John Kitchin quit a medical career to pursue his passion: skating along the boardwalk of San Diego's Pacific Beach. He calls himself "Slomo."

My friend John Porter sent me this email:
"Slomo (his nickname for his unique skating style) is the coolest guy I've ever met.  He hangs out at Mission Beach in San Diego, and I've seen him there for maybe 15 years on my biking visits to the beach.  

I first thought he was just another schizo who frequents the boardwalk.  Then I talked to him - and found a very thoughtful and articulate guy.  

This video of him explains a lot and has some kernels of wisdom for us all. 

It's about 15 minutes long, but may be worth your time. He's one of life's little gifts."

  5. Hi George.... you have out done yourself...what a post!
    At 79 I have been retired for22 years...did not walk away from it like the Dr.... got fired! But like the Dr I am ok $$-wise, and ride my bike instead og roller blading. 5 miles minimum most days...often 7-8, once in a while 10. I get the same feeling as Slo Mo... never knew how to explain it... God Bless you George...you have just done one of your best posts ever. Wish I could be where you are...me in Naples FL...one of the other great places in our beautiful America.

  8. George, thank you for posting that. Too many people get old before they know what life is about. But you're never to old to just do what you want to do. I mean like you are doing George.
