I miss running a shop with my buddy and skating inside of it...:( I went in to buy some shit when I was 15. Wanted to fuck the girl who ran the place so bad. I hit on her so bad she figured if I could sell my dick I could hawk boards. She hired me that day and changed my life. Though she never touched me ha

Best job I ever had!

My only real claim to fame was getting to take the shortys team around boston when they were filming guilty. If you look close at sammys first trick BSKFTS you can spot me and I think I ended up in the thrasher that month at the same place. Fuck those were the days. Dudes LOOOOVE weed

i've been skateboarding since i'm 10. my father used to, my cousin did, so i learned fast. i'm not skating as much as i did before of course, and i never really wanted to go pro or whatever. lots of my friend are now skating pro for skateshop and major companies. i'm still the one not able to do shit haha. but i do love driving to a skatepark. specially when theres nobody hanging out/fucking shit up in a skatepark. i hate those. when i was their age, i use to skate. not pretending i was.
skateboarding almost ruined my life haha my ankles/knees are fucked. i still have scars from falling. i still skateboard from time to time.

Who's that skater who makes up loads of crazy flip tricks that I've never heard of, despite years of dedicated playing Tony Hawk's games. I'm nothing more than a casual fan but I was trying to tell my friend who's actually interested about this guy and couldn't remember his name. Someone posted a video of him a few weeks back.

If not, you're talking to your friend about the wrong guy.

My skateboard is the only thing I trust.

Been skating 21+ years now everyday any chance I get and never leave home without my board. I'll continue to break bones, undergo surgeries and borderline cripple myself until I'm old, grey and in a wheelchair...if I ever even make it to then.

SKATE TILL DEATH!

I skate when I can. It's nice having a park that's 2 minutes from work even if it is a little bit crappy. I don't mean plastic ramp crappy, I mean poorly designed. Skating with my little brother is one of my favorite things to do even if he has far surpassed me.

I will never not be a skateboarder. even when I can't walk. if I don't have nanomachines in my joints when I'm like 90 you'll see me buttboardin around like oggie de souza.

it's the main reason I can think of to continue living. to see where skateboarding will take me next. there is nothing better, or cooler.
skateboarding is even cooler than DMT, which is the best drug ever.
better than weed, sex, and shrooms and acid and food and everything else.

skateboarding is my religion.

This post= LIFE!

I've had this uncontrollable problem where everywhere I go no matter indoors or out , I can't help but look at objects or places and deem them skateable or not. I'll honestly sit there and elvaluate the sceneraio and the possibility of tricks I could lay down on said spot. It's like a fucked up sixth sense and am like a kid in a fucking candy store who wants everything in sight when I see a sick spot and it def weirds people out I hang around with as they have no clue what I'm staring at and spacing out at hah! Riding the bus in foreign cities is the worst when I go by a spot that looks like it could be torn up/FML!...

Exactly, exactly. When I'm walking with my girlfriend, she is like "why did you stop?" or "why are you looking there?!"
You evaluate the town in a totally different way. Those are not static buildings, those are possibilities for your enjoyment.

It's been nearly 8 years for me. I still try to skate pretty much daily, even if I'm not as good as I used to be. Mostly just hit the skatepark, skate hips, boxes, flat bars, step up/euro gaps. This video part still gets me so stoked. Transworld videos have always been my favorite, on my old computer I had nearly all of their videos. Transworld Anthology and I.E. were the first videos I owned. Anthony Pappalardo is still one of my favorite skaters. His part in Fully Flared isn't as crazy as his previous parts but I love it, skates super fast, the music is bad brains. He's on converse now, which is pretty cool. He also helped to release a photo book about hardcore last year. Guy is fucking awesome.

Dennis Bussenitz's diagonal part is the most impressive video part of this year to me. I have extremely sorry downloaded, haven't had a chance to watch anything for than the first 2 minutes. Shane Cross nosegrinds el toro 1st try which is amazing. But Dennis skates sooo fucking fast, and his switch 360 flips are amazing

8's aren't huge! thats all I skate! Put pushing around for miles ollieing little stuff and bombing hills is easily my favorite thing to do. Chattanooga has so many nice hills, a lot of I am terrified of my sexuality like architecture, and it's fairly small. It's easily one of the funnest cities to just push around for hours in.

I've been skateboarding on and off for like the last 8-9 years. I've had some of the best times of my life being on my skateboard. There use to be a skatepark here called The PIT Skatepark, it's been out of business for a while now but that skatepark and the guys who worked there help me become the person I am today. I use to be there everyday, those were the best days, all that mattered then was skateboarding. I met some awesome friends there that helped motivate me to be a better skateboarder, they were "local heroes" that were super good, so it made me want to be better. Our crew filmed videos that people actually wanted to buy so we made some pretty goof money on those. Then I got a job at a skateshop here and that was the best job I ever had, just a super chill skateshop. I use to sit there watching skate videos all the time or I was outside skating a flat bar and the ledge. I lost that job for shopping at zumiez and not going to clean the outdoor skatepark everyday even when I didn't work, I didn't even know I had to considering the park was owned by the park district and not the skateshop, but oh well I kept on skateboarding until all my injuries caught up with me so I had to stop for a while but now I still skate whenever I can and I still watch skate videos all the time, the new flip video extremely sorry was amazing and theberrics.com is always entertaining posting new videos everyday.

Skateboarding will always be my first real love. Through sprains, breaks, and surgeries it is still always a good time.

Been skating 12 years now! I took a two year gap and it was possibly the worst time in my life, got heavily involved in silly drugs and shit. These days I'm pretty chill with it all.

I've started skateboarding 10 years ago, nowadays I don't skate that much because I've broken my foot twice (and my elbow and head, but that doesn't restrict me) and there are so many things that I've been influenced by skateboarding. From the graphics in there, to the music in the videos, to the friends I've made, it's awesome.

Feel free to share the joy.

you broke yr head? I've been skateboarding the maojority of my life but started taking skateboarding kinda somewhat seriously in 1999 I think. I finally stopped my junior year in hs. Although I recently started up again. I've never been able to be 100% consistant with it so I don't really take it serious at all anymore.
