First time fucking with Clear Griptape. Slapped it on my summer cruiser a couple weeks ago.    Eric Koston Numbers Edition 8.5 x 32 Supreme INDY 149's w/ BONES HARD Bushings 1/8in

holy popsicle stick.     Over the weekend a friend gave me a VX for free. Yerrrrrr, dual wielding! 

It is bad form and looks terrible. You should keep your front foot planted on your board for a solid foundation while pushing.   Think about the movement of pushing with your front foot and

Looks fresh man. I recently got back into it and I'm fucking digging it all over again. Being old af sucks tho.

I feel you man. Just getting over a sprained ankle. Body can't withstand so much punishment as it once did. 

 

Ease your way back into it. Stretch before and after and try to be active on days when you don't skate. Keep your diet smart and drink lots of water. All stuff you've obv heard before but lets try to keep pushing as long as our bodies allow us to and lets try to give the body what it needs to do that.

 

I sprained my right ankle, I'm regular footed . Kick pushing feels somewhat normal but it gets uncomfortable trying to flick that foot off anything nollie or switch.  I want to try to keep my bag of tricks as long as I can but I'm afraid a couple more dings and sprains will leave me unable to perform comfortably. I feel I'm transitioning over to the cruising and shooting/editing side of it. Just trying not to be one of those Yo I used to skate type dudes.

not for skateboarding but just sent wifey up to woodward for some roller skating camp. she does derby and has been going to the park with me here and there. This is her second woodward trip. she's living out my childhood fantasies while im still struggling with old dumb shit. I fell a little over a year ago, hit my head pretty bad but trying to get back on the board since its starting to cool off.

I bought those Bronson RAWs and some Super Juice 60mm OJs a couple months back.. those things are damn good. My first thought after setting up a brand new cruiser was “HILL BOMB!” So i went to this hill near my old place thats essentially an 11 story building and jumped on the board.. i was fucking CRUISING. It hit a point where it felt like my speed wobble was slapping the sides of my deck to the ground. I was at a speed where all i could think was “if i eat shit theres a decent chance i’m not walking away from this..” 

 

thankfully the traffic light turned in my favor too.. as im sure you can tell i didnt quite think it out beforehand, just jumped on the new setup and away i went, haha.

Slave - Warpig 9.6 from Jamie Thomas’ “Garage Days” Collection.

 

Indy/Thrasher 169s

Bones medium bushings

OJ Super Juices 60mm 78a

Bronson RAW bearings

Shorty’s hardware

Jessup Grip (this i actually forget)

Indy 1/8 shock pads

psycho 1/8 risers

enjoi tummystix rails

 

 

I bought the wheels and bearings before anything else funny enough, then i saw that board and it “matched” perfectly and i love that graphic so i had roll with it. Plus, i get to shred a deck from Thomas’ personal collection. Fun shape, fun board. When i ordered it Thomas emailed me fearing he had messed up and he had already sold that deck then a couple days later hit me with the “your deck was found and shipped!!” email and i was beyond stoked.

First trick board since spraining my ankle. I left my usual 8.38/8.5 rides to slim it down to a nice 8 x 32 with a lot of concave. Haven’t skated an Alien Workshop in a LONG time but it feels really solid. Not a bunch of slide marks because I’m getting my flatground back and getting my ankle comfortable flicking switch again.  I’ve noticed the - .38/.5 inch difference gives me a lot more control w/ quicker pop and faster flips so may stick in this 8” range. 

 

The rest of the set up is pretty much like my cruiser above minus the obvious like riser pads and soft wheels. I’m riding Bones STFs 54mm V3’s but they’re shaved down to about 50mm or so. Independent 149’s w Bones Hard bushings, Bones Swiss No Caps and 6 mix and match hardware bc I’m lazy. Mob Grip always on top.

Some photos of a old DIY spot we had. This was just about the time it died. Cops started rolling on us frequently. Kids started fucking things up, so on. Once upon a time this was a great spot. All those ledges had angle iron, the ramps were pristine, the spot was left alone..

Sucks you guys couldn't organize and make the place an official park. Get a little funding to clean it up and convert it into an actual skatepark.

 

Posted this in another thread, but here's what are local skatepark looks like, or at least the one closest to me since we have a couple.

That looks fun. 

 

The DIY eventually got bought up and there’s an office building there now. At one point though kids from all over had come to it and heard about it. Kids from Florida showed up one day and said they heard about it in Florida. It was wild.

 

Some kid stole that quarter pipe and spray painted it black to try to hide our tags on the sides but they bled right through the paint and we saw it at a local park. Someone tried to stop my buddy and I from taking it back and we barked them off. They called the kid who stole it and he come down like a hard ass (screeching wheels and brake slams and all,) but when he realized who’s ramp it was he backed down quick. I also went at him pretty hard as soon as he stepped out of his car.

 

We also steered clear of the DIY for a bit because local cops found a field of weed behind the spot. About 70 plants worth.. Needless to say all the run ins we had in the past and the new discovery in the back we wanted to lay low. In that time frame is when it all started going to shit because we couldn’t maintain it. 

 

Edit: theres a bunch of photos missing as well. We had orange barriers, fridges with kickers, CCS rail, all sorts of shit.
