    that's what happens when you get old.
    i dunno if you're old or anything, i'm just saying..

    i'm 22. i was decent at 16. it's pretty depressing to go skate now. i can't land anything, i hurt the next day, and every 14 year old kid shows me up at every trick i even think about trying.
    i'm still down for skating, though. it's still fun, even if i suck. i'll skate until i'm in a wheelchair.

    skating is definitely the dopest sport out there.....i think that tony hawks pro skater is definitely the worst thing to happen to skateboarding ever....it seems like any public place i skate..ive got these dumb motherfuckers,head to toe in abercrombie, and sporting a wicked buzzcut telling me to do a 360 flip mctwist down a 5 stair, like its my fucking job to entertain them...do these people actually think those moves are possible..what the fuck

    i actually like watching skate videos more than riding ones alot of the time. i have a few 411's, the rodney daewon round 2, the es vid, and um......fuck........oh...the osiris video......theyre just alot better technically compared to riding videos and whatnot and watching rodney mullen or rodrigo tex skate is great, there was a pretty good zoo york demo at some shit park out here too awhile ago all those guys are super good too.

    skateboarding..........thumbs up.

    I skated for about 13 years.....that was until I blew out my knee and tore my ACL.....I still read the magazines and shit.....one of the most underrated skaters out there right now is Frank Gerwer.
