I skated a lot in the mid-late 80's. Our rural neighborhood had a lot of kids the same age and we all skated, so there were several big quarter pipes, launch ramps, and the crown jewel was the 20 ft wide, 16ft high halfpipe across the street from my house. Smooth masonite, roll in, and great night lights! I never got rid of my last deck, a Vision Psycho Stick, GullWing Pro III trucks, Slimballs, Bones Bearings. I started using it again last year with my 2 sons. That resulted in a snapped achilles one day at the local skatepark, still trying to ride bowls, but I have been back at again this year and plan on getting a new (but still old school) stick for future endeavors...but here is the old one!
