Skateboarding

Anyone else here skate? I started back up like a year ago. i started when i was like 11 and quit when i was 16(not by choice, i got sent away). Im almost 20 and i realize how much i missed it. I always loved getting stoned and going out for a good skate. My current setup is a Shortys deck, Indy trucks, Luckey Bearings and Ghetto Child wheels.

flip deck
indy trucks (had orginally bought gk's but changed back to my indy's from before)
flip sidecuts wheels
bones swiss bearings
not sure about hardware anymore and shortys tape i think.

i used to skate several years ago, and tried getting a few friends to start with me end of last summer, but one got sent to a different state, and i, too, am too lazy to skate alone.

Oh for shizzle. I started when I was 13, I was pretty damn good(if I do say so myself ) in my younger years, then I started smoking/drinking/all that good stuff. My dabbling in drugs may have hindered my skating abilities, but it certainly hasn't stopped me completely.

Current set up is a Powell blank, tensor trucks, ricta wheels, speed demon bearings.

Drugs are less of a deterrent to skating when you have a nice sturdy longboard beneath your feet. Pretty much why I converted completely from my shortboard. I also realized that i'd never be doing nose varials onto 15 stairs so the shortboard didn't really offer me any advantages.

That's whats so great about the shortboard, though...the technical shit, the flip tricks....shit, landing a perfect tre flip is a high within itself...

I just love the old school flavor of a longboard and personally i get higher off carving down a hill and throwing some slides. im about to rant about some other shit too....so be warned.

Street skating has taken way too much precedent and has turned skateboarding from do it yourself fun into "you have to be a god to do the hot new tricks". Meh, just my .02 cents, but thats what I attribute the slump in skateboarding too. When was the last time you saw a trick on the front of a popular skate mag that you could actually just pick up and try?

I do agree with that, but I was never one of 'those' skaters. Sure, I like to push my limits, learn new tricks, and I"ll admit there was some friendly competition amongst fellow skaters, but it never went to my head. It was always about the fun, always was and always will be...

I try, not too good at it. My ratio of injuries between street and vert is like 3:10, lol. I can barely even drop in without falling on my ass, it's embarassing really how bad I suck at vert...

You shouldn't force your kids to do stuff.

Except suck my dick.
