One morning Kyle Ayling, Griptape Master of Cloud 9 Griptape, was driving to work at Starbucks around 4 a.m. As he was thinking about the definition of happiness, like any normal person would do pre-sunrise, Katy Perry’s "Wide Awake" started playing on the radio. The lyrics, "Yeah, I'm falling from cloud nine..." really struck him. Somewhere in that moment, he realized that he needed his own definition of happiness instead of comparing it to someone else's.
Okay... he might have been extremely tired, but he knew that song playing at that moment was more than delirium: it was fate telling him it was time to pursue his dream. From that point forward, Cloud 9 was all he could think about. Cloud 9 Griptape is deeply rooted in skateboarding, however it is not just about skateboarding. Cloud 9, like happiness, is whatever you want it to be. Whatever you love... that's what Cloud 9 is about!
