On another note, I need new skate shoes.
I don't skateboard, but I have a sort of interesting story to tell. When I went to go get new bindings for my snowboard, one of the guys who works at the shop was showing how he added some skateboard trucks to a snowboard, and proceeded to ride around outside the store. God knows how he stopped the snowboard from breaking down the middle, but it was pretty beast XD
Always been interested in it though, but I'm terrible =P
I have an old speed demons, lol if you want it is yours!!!
Not made up at all. It's mostly freestyle tricks. Look up Rodney Mullen, the man who made skateboarding what it is today. :D
I had a crappy little Nash board when I was around 12. Never did get a real board when I got older, and the whole fascination with skateboarding went away for a while until recently. This past weekend, a cousin who surfs brought along his longboard, a Loaded Dancer, and I got a few rides on it and it was a lot of fun. I fell thrice (haha) but still got a nice rush out of it. I'll be saving up for some longboards, one for carving and something smaller for cruising. Anybody recommend some boards for novices like myself?
Heres what I ride. Rayne Demonseed on Indys, and a Demonseed I cut down.
Heres me doing a powerslide 2 weeks ago, before I hurt my ankle.
Skate safe and wear your helmet. And use good headphones.
