    who skates? i took a 4 or 5 year hiatus but i've been back in action lately. mostly skating mini, trying to get my shit back without killing myself the way i used to. skating was such a huge part of my life growing up, i'm pissed at myself for quitting for such a long time. feels good to be skating again and i'm pretty siked on it.

    I bought a board last summer after taking about 10 years off. I found out things are a little harder when you've grown about a foot taller and 100lbs. heavier. It's painful how bad I am now. That's all I used to do was skateboard and I wish I had never quit.

    i hear you. i'm just trying to take it slow and get it back. i'm actually not as bad as i thought i'd be when i started up again. my stamina is non-existent tho. i'm shot after skating mini for 45 minutes. feels good tho.

    I've been thinking about skating again, just
    for the sake of getting exercise and pushing
    myself... I used to fruitboot and skateboard,
    I don't know why the hell I quit. Before I stopped
    fruitbooting I could mistyflip gaps and shit
    and was jumping off a lot of roofs. Now I need
    to lose at least 10 pounds before I can consider
    anything like that.

    excercise was big motivation for me to start up again. when i don't skate, i get very little excercise.

    please never mention rollerblading or anything related to rollerblading in this thread again, thanks.

    when I was little rollerbladers were the shit. there was this team of rollerbladers that performed in the local mall and did some cool shit, my parents were with me so I asked them to get me some blades. I had the time of my life growing up. I also got a skateboard later on, and man did I have fun with it. I wonder why I quit...oh yeah, faggots hijacked it just like faggots hijacked underground hip hop, graffiti, and DJing. fucking faggots, they fuck everything up!

    Deal, but it gets way gayer than fruitybooting.

    I used to skate way back in the day. For us, though, it was more a fun way of hanging out with the boys, drinking and smoking, causing old people to have heart attacks and all that fun stuff. By the time we all started to take it more seriously, I injured my knee and gave it up. Plus by this time every fucker and their mum was a skater, so I just said fuck it.

    Fun fucking times, though, maybe I should get back into it....

    skating never interested me, nor does it now even with all these x-games and proskater video games, just looked boring to me

    i never quit... but then again im 17...

    ha bitches im young and full of energy and better than all yall.

    not really, i feel like a fuckin old man sometimes, especially when i look at all the little shits that are so fucking good it makes me want to quit.

    skating really is getting infiltrated by a lot of faggots who try more than anything to look like their favorite skater or whatever... and when you see the little crews of them its like they're collectively trying to look like their favorite skate crew, including a little wannabe mark appleyard, wannabe evan hernandez or some other really good 15 year old with a spanish name, the token wannabe really-good-black-kid (bastien salabanzi or whoever, etc.).. plus the whole ego thing at parks and spots about who's better. and then all the dudes who say all this shit about how great it used to be or whatever but werent really part of it back then anyway.


    all this aside, skating is really fun, good excercise, and just good times for the most part.. an important part of life.

    the x-games and tony hawk video games are in no way representative of skateboarding, dont get it twisted. fuck the x games and fuck tonyhawk pro skater, even though i enjoy seeing skateboarding on tv and enjoy playing tony hawk pro skater.
