they use to do that at the Vans park near me, open really late so all the young peoples had to leave.
Picked up another board today, Black Label Lucero.
Out in the garage, and found a box of old Transworld and Thrasher mags from 83-89. Day shot to hell!
nice, I bet I ahve a few old ones laying around too.
check out foundation, they make some cool new decks with an old school sizing to them.
You guys are much to young, I'm of the generations of "Skateboarding magazine" and even "Action now"..
All I see are popsicle sticks!
I'm happy with my 151 "Angel" and my Black Label/Emergency Lucero.
Ricky, long before you came to California, there was a skate park on Alameda island. I think I still have my membership card somewhere... we took BART to Fruitvale station, and then pushed to the park. It had no vertical at all, just five snake runs with bowls at the bottom. But everything was done in shotcrete, so it was possible to skate across all the snake runs, too. Lots of fun.
I think I might have posted that I got a skate board for my birthday back in February. After years of pestering (and every time I could have laid down the $$$ my self) wife got me one for my 37 b'day.
hadn't really made much effort to get out on it till today, either being home or weather or done after cycling.
so this afternoon whilst Mrs Hay Ewe was practisicing music, I spent 1 hour in the street.
HEAPS fun! I got better and going further and then round the corner to the longer street with a slight down hill, imagined in my head that I was a windsurfer carving my way along, till I got to the recently laid hot mix and that was it. Bit of a push up hill!
Well, its not one of those plywood wide long boards, its this
but it has been fun this afternoon
maybe some time I shall get a long board style but till then, i need to be able to turn decent corners!
Been eyeballing this deck:
Just have to put the rayne up for sale! hardly even rode the thing Now for sale
Never too old to skate. J Mascis still does and he's cooler than anybody I've ever met. Here's some proof from his music video to "Over It". He's a long grey haired rocker who is 47. Never too old to skate. Maybe I am too young to skate. They used doubles for most of the tricks, but yeah, still cooler than I'll ever be.
Got home from riding this weekend & watched the Bones Brigade Autobiography. Got quite motivated to head over to the local skatepark only to remember that I tossed my last board that busted on me. I hit up amazon & found this:
Hard to argue with a 15$ complete. Some quick googling shows it's same company as powell\peralta. So we'll see.
Let's hope I don't poke my eye out with that thing
Just started skating again. Feels so damn good. I'm still very rusty, but I'm progressing bit by bit and loving it.

The Positiv board is just about done. I did finally get some new shoes. Gotta say, DC has some good stuff, and at 25$ on Amazon, I couldn't complain.
Quick clip from today at the local park. Crappy park for sure, but beats sitting on the rowing machine.

I am with you - 40 yrs old, used to skate when I was a kid but took it up again a couple of years ago. I twisted my ankle skating a bowl with my nephew this spring, but those heal! Someone suggest tapping up first - totally.

I went to an indoor skatepark for the first time in almost 10 years. So weird to not have to wear a helmet. Of course a little over an hour in, I snapped my board doing a flat ground 360 flip.
The next day I picked up an Almost deck. Its got some carbon fiber in it. Lots of good pop. Different concave that looks mellow, but flips nice. Its also the widest board I've ever skated. 8.25". I had skated 7.5 - 7.625 up until this past year.
Decks and shoes are also officially destroyed in a month.
