for me its stamina.

i used to be able to skate from 8am to 3am...fuel by 99c BK menu and free refills.

now im lucky if i can get a good hour of skating...

 

 

I have been running on the regular to try to get my stamina back up just for skating. Old men trying to hold it down.

 

back in the day we used to hide a Del Taco cup in Sears for the group of skaters and load up on $0.49 tacos and burritos .... fuck you guys are bringing me back to this shit.

i used to be able to pop a full size rubbermaid trashcan off flat ground ... these days i would be lucky to get an ollie over knee high. so feel better knowing you can still get on a board ...

i see all these young dads at the parks talking to the little kids like "did you see that movie Dog Town and Zboys ... I skated back then" to me its like fuck i stared about 5/6 years after that era and i still get on a board fucker, if you want to re-live those glory days get back on a board and stop the story telling.

california was built by skateboarders.

find the rudy johnson old english deck (on page 2 i think). select it. press < (left) on the remote and a little reaper should pop up on the screen. press enter on the remote and you should hear a noise like a vault unlocking or something. when that happens go back to the special features screen and you'll see video days as one of the selections.

 

enjoy
