    for now 12oz is the closest to graffiti i can get. so guess what helps me pass the time ? old school skateboarding ! it all started a year ago when i got a longboard. a few months ago it got ran over by a car. so i asked a guy i saw with an h-street board if he wanted to sell it and 25 dollars later it was mine. now i will find pics of the old school stuff i have and post em on up.

  15. Sorry to veer a bit off topic, but what longboard do you ride? I've been recently getting into it after my best friends started their longboard distribution company (check em out here if you're so inclined), and I'm digging it greatly... just wish I had the cash to buy one myself. So far I don't need to, cause these guys have all sorts of crazy shit lying around the house. So far I've been riding this a lot (Tierney 38"):

    And I fucking love it, shit carves like no other. However it's a pain in the ass cause you can't ride it flat or do tons of things 4-wheelers can. But for hills it's unstoppable.

    I'm thinking of purchasing a Loaded 38" Flex 5 when I get the bling though:

    My second fave of the bunch and flat friendly... and the Randall trucks are unfuckable with. Price is steep though but we'll see...

    Good thread, by the way. That Gonz crushes. Beer,
