I want to get one :(
This is a parady thread
I was skating with Willis the other day and he landed a backside 180 kick flip. A very awkward but beautiful trick that I can't do.
Tricks I've been working on:
Varials and 3 flips
Fakie heel flip varials
Nollie 360 pop shove it
All manner of kick turns and Casper stalls
Back side lip slides. Terrifying but so satisfying.
Some neighborhood kids stole my BABY Skates skate board as it was propped against my building about 2 years ago. I had it setup with the best trucks wheels and bearings when I was in Asheville and actually had a little bit of money. I'd get another one when I get a little bit of cash even though I'm 32 and never got good at it.
Skateboarding in Asheville is totally illegal around the downtown area. If a cop sees you just standing on one you get a ticket. They have a nice public skate park in town though... it's all to protect the tourists.
I built an awesome brand new complete in Portland and it was stolen from bloodface's garage like 4 years ago and I was pretty bummed. So I took like 3 years off and starting skating with a whole new approach.
I've been skating on and off for 15 years and haven't hurt myself for like 5 but I've broken around 7 bones and had various head injuries and am taking it rly slow now cause if I get hurt I can't work. If anyone wants to get together and skate safely old man style in always down. My fab local park is Merriam park.
Anyone been to or seen the documentary skatopia? It's on Netflix and fuking amazing. It's the crimethinc of skateboarding. Also anyone seen the 2013 x-games or street league stuff? Fuckin insane stuff happening in scene right now with mega ramps. Dude landed the first Ollie 720 no grab.
