The Life We Chose



Having grown up with very little prospects in Oklahoma City, Don ‘Nuge’ Nguyen made a choice to forge his own way of life, moving out west in pursuit of a dream career in skateboarding. A decade on and there’s no doubt Nuge’s risk paid off, going on to become one of the gnarliest skaters the sunshine coast has seen. Desillusion spent a day with Nuge to discuss the local scene and how skateboarding might just have saved his life.
