That's totally cool. I lived in Poway in the early 70s. I went to Meadowbrook, then Twin Peaks and then Poway High.

Most kids had a skateboard, so it's pretty cool to see they put in a park.

Right on.

Total bummer.

We're looking to buy a couch and I'm not sure what I want. Something like that would be just about right.

my quiver



so i got BOARD! the poolking label'ed board will be the one i'm marketing soon.

it will be the 'ROLL YOUR OWN EXERCISE BOARD" ....

Here's another pic to give you an idea of the deck.



So, like i said, 38"-44" might cut the mustard for you. Depending on foot
length, the width can vary. I like kicks that are half the size of the regular
kicks and the board must have a concave surface and for pumping purposes
a slight camber is desirable ....

www.pumpyourdeck.com !!!

cheers

p.s. to the asslicks thinking my posts are spam, FYYFFF :P

edit- What I mean to say is that I'd kill myself in 3 seconds or less. Fuck.
There's a group of 4 or 6 kids around the corner from me who play football in the street on those. Their feet never touch the ground and the fast kids can go from full stopped to very fast in no time at all.

They say it's easy but then again they're about 12 so it's hard to know. I may have to try to mooch one of the kid's boards. And wear my wrist guards.



Hey sAMOa/Chris. Have you tried one of those wave boards?
Any thoughts?

Problem is, as an adult, I'm overthinking it. I used to do that stuff. Now, I'm thinking HIGH SIDE! HIGH SIDE! COEFFICIENT OF FRICTION! CURRRRRRBBBBBB!

I've done a few decent slides before hanging up the board a year ago but damn, I was a nervous ninny the whole way.

I miss being indestructable.

As ridiculous as it sounds, I've been searching around for stuff on the web along the lines of: "too old" "skateboard" "new"... you get the idea. Being confined to a cubicle day in and day out is driving me to find new ways to taste freedom. I'm starting to get this urge to (re)discover all those things I never did when I was younger.

I'm excited to push my boundaries, regain some balance, and quite possibly break my arm (never done that before, either!). 30 is the new 20, right? Wish me luck...

Never too old.
I learned how to ride a motorcycle at 35. Learned how to snowboard at 36.

Recently learned how to shoot a gun....

What next

as long as you've got the nerve and drive you're not too old.

Ya, jumping is the easy part. The thud that comes immediately thereafter is what sucks for me.
