In my younger years about 1975 thru 1985 did everyday. I still do some these days and I get some weird looks and thumbs up from people. Probably thinking that old man is going to break himself. One of my favorite boards was the Logan Earth Ski with Gull Wing trucks and Kryptonic wheels, though I had many of them. Spent most of my time at Kona Skateboard Park in Jacksonville Fla. I miss being younger and those days.
32 here so not doing anything crazy anymore. Just trying to get back into it. I used to skate street and now trying long boarding....with very little very mild downhill grade. No bombing....
Mostly just riding.......
The board I've been borrowing is a Loaded Flex 1 Dervish with Paris trucks....not sure what wheels but on the softer side. I'm not into high speed, just cruising and a few mild declines.
By buddies have the gloves and many different boards, they can do some pretty cool stuff.
I started skating when I was about 11 or 12 years old, I'm 40 now (yea, 4****ing0) and still skate when I can. I will never hang up my board, no sport, physical activity or hobby has ever come close to giving me the joy, passion and outlet for individual expression that skateboarding has. Not snowboarding or mountain biking, and certainly not "grown up" sports like running or golf, nothing. Now, that said, maybe it's a regional thing, maybe it's an age thing [GetOffMyLawn] but every time I see a hipster ******kid on a long board I just want to slap him upside his stupid poser head. [/GetOffMyLawn] I hope it's just a local thing and not representative of the scene as a whole but 90% of the time these kids are carrying their boards. srsly?!
The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
Go to Heaven for the climate, go to Hell for the company.
