does anyone want to skate. i fancy starting up again...
Still thinks he is 15.
I actually have a soft spot for skaters, having had a few crushes on one when I was actually a rather young girl.
I'll come watch.
I'm too old for this shit !
I'll have to dig my board out though.
because girl skateboarders were always a bit shit.
though last time i checked there were some were reaalllyy good, like vanessa torres.
thats the test of a true skater.
i managed a kickflip once, just once though.
anything whilst going along, i was pretty shit. :(
I wasn't so rubbish at it.
let's start a skateboard crew!
but seriously, if anyone's interested in having a little muck about then we should sort some dop shit out. i haven't touched my board for 5 years or so. but i'm at my parents house now so i could take it back to london.
i'm going to have a quick go now and then i'll come back and tell you my skill level. haha.
my board is in a shed somewhere. I do miss my skating 'crew'. I'm actually compiling a skate mixtape (THPS2 music) at the moment, how odd.
i can still ollie going along, and i also managed a switch frontside. but that is it! haha. i'm so shit now!
I could nosestall on kerbs, and sort of boardslide (once) and manual for about a second. Most of my ollies looked like my profile pic. :S
my prime (1st year of uni) i was able to do 10+ flip trick varieties, favourites being 360 flip and nollie heelflip.
now i'm scared of ollieing up a curb...
it's heartbreaking... but i want to get back into it.
but i live in a very hilly village, and i'm shit at it.
watching the RAD tour of eastern europe on channel 5 made me want to grab one of my brothers boards and hit the streets this morning.
that whenever he thought he was wasting his life he'd look at skaters and feel better because at least his hobbys were more productive that theirs.
I just remember it being painful from all the falling over.
me and my chums used to hang out at the skate-park in winchside all the time.
Spent my formative teenage years hanging around with the skater booois "under the bridge" (I think chunty will know where I mean). They were gorgeous! Ah,those were the days!
im still a sucker for the whole skater/rocker boy thing.
i cant wait for me and sarkys metal night!
