What board did you have growing up? Was it made in your garage out of a broken roller skate and a 2" x 4"? Did you find an old one it the rafters, tried it once and was hooked for life? What kind of wheels? Clay, steel or urethane? Was it a cheap plastic one from the five and dime that pitched you off if you hit a shadow? Were you the spoiled neighborhood kid with a state of the art board who couldn't ride, didn't deserve or appreciate it? Or were you lucky enough to have a skate shop build one for you? Did you let a friend borrow your Dogtown Skates, leave it outside and someone steal it? How did you get it? Did you steal it? As a gift, money from odd jobs and birthday cards? Did you live by a hill? Not to steep but not flat like my driveway either(until we built a ramp). Were you forced to ride on a gravel road or have the luxury of a newly paved sub-division? None of those things mattered because if you loved skateboarding, had a board and a hill, you were and still are king or queen of the world!!! I love everything about skateboarding. From the history and its roots to what the future holds. Eventually the entire world will be paved and skateboarders should take advantage of the situation and rule it!
No pads, no helmet... That's what I'm talking about?
Roller blades had to come from someplace.
You've heard what I have to say. Now I want to here your story, I'm getting bored with mine. So is my wife and kids. Thanks, uncletom
