SK8 OR DIZZIE

Recommended Posts

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....

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.

You have no idea how many times I tried to

get a job at my local skateshop when I was

15-17... had I got that job I probably would

have never stopped skating.

 

Fucking real world.

fuck yeah iquit. thats a claim if i ever heard one. if i were you i would have a t shirt that says "i bowled with pat duffy". he was pretty much the first to ever take it to the handrail. nice. i cant wait for the others.

 

ya, my best friend here, the chinese kid next to me, is like the main skate industry kid in hong kong. has a skate shop, books the demos and all that shit. so when heads come through, i always take them out partying and show them a good time. they're siked to meet an american in HK who knows whats up.

 

unfortunately, i can't show all the pics of duffy skating here. i promised the photographer, theo, on the left, that i would wait. he took some sick flics and doesn't want shit out before he sells em to the magazines.

 

but check this out:

 

duffy climbed this gnarly scaffolding on the side of a building. he jumps onto a huge double decker bus thats stopped at a red light. he proceeds to kickflip from the roof of one double decker bus to another while they are stopped at a light. it was the sickest thing i ever saw done street skating. theo said he'd probly give tho pics to skateboarder mag, they might've been published already, i dunno, check it out. any way, duffy's a super cool mellow guy, and still a sick ripper. insane. he was straight outta rehab so we couldn't party too hard, but we had a good time while he was here nonetheless.

 

hkskateboarding.com is a cool website my friend runs if you want to peep it.

Im there with the rest of you old guys. I started skating in like 86 or so .. kept that shit up like a madman all through high school ... and i stll get on my board a few times a year. i need to get going again more consistanly ... im way outta practice and the fear has me right now. my cousin has been pushing himself hard for a year or two again and is better now then he was 10 years ago at his peak.

 

i just moved and i guess Omar Hassan lives right across the street from me. thats the word from my landlord, anyway.

 

for all you older guys .... i just went digging yesterday and found many of the old classic skate vids are being re-released on dvd.

santa cruz has all their old titles out (wheels of fire, streets of fire, etc)

powell will be putting out all the bones birgade vids on 3/15

plan b has put all theirs out (questionable, virtual reality.)

 

only one missing i would like to see soon is Blind "Video days"

Guest im not witty

^im waiting for the H street videos to come out again.

 

 

but onto the issue at hand... i think its funny how everyone and thier mother "used to skate."

 

i still skate everyday if i get the chance, and ive been skating for about 15 years. bear in mind the first 4/5 of those years i were just a little tyke, riding around on a big ass SIMS board not doing a single trick and having the time of my life.

 

i dont really have any peers to skate with anymore, but thats fine. to me now, there is no point in skateboarding that isnt personal. its not going to bring me fame and fortune, but its the closest thing ive got to meditation. parking blocks, wall rides, slappies, slash grinds, dork tricks. this is what its about people. im sick of the stuntman mentality in skating. im super excited that stereo is kicking back up again after reading an interview with jason lee recently in which he said what ive been saying about skating for the last several years. footage of the gonz cruising down the street is more valuable than a video full of stair and rail jockeys. clip clip clip trick trick trick.

 

just skate you hosers.
