skateboarding moves

Recommended Posts

There was hardly any cement around near where I lived with my 7 brothers and the rest of the local social-welfare community but when we found it we made use of it. One time we came across an empty house, one of the few with a cement back porch ! so we made the most of it, we kind of just went wild on that thing, I only had a thick board with plastic wheels on it . .. you can imagine what the painted cement floor looked like after we had finished with it! :rolleyes:


I don't recommend skateboarding when stoned. bones are fragile man!

skateboarding on the sweeping cement sides under bridges used to be good, but I don't recommend that either!

Being a girl and skating is harder then you think, you constantly have everyone judge you- a skater chick or a chick skater?

Being a girl skateboarder is tough nowadays I hear but way back when...

there wasn't the same issues, the biggest thing back then was having to keep up with the boys and where I came from you had to skate on the bitumen roads mostly coz there was no cement or other smooth surfaces near by, and wheels and accoutrements were expensive!


Skateboarding is the biz though! What i used to love was the speed, on those hard plastic wheels :D I couldn't do much (ppl seems to want to do board flips and jumps these days) 'cept move fast and try to manoeuvre; oh and pull a pose like a handstand lay down or a phoon type thing. too cool for skool!

I used to luv crashing too. When you're skateboarding on roads and you are going so fast the best thing to do to stop is to take a tumble, preferably onto a grass verge! hmmm i still like to tumble on grass.


... I was writing a short story about this very subject, sort of, about a girl skateboarder who gets a few dudes together to go on skateboarding journeys through the city and to prime sites, they were already quite good skaters and together they get even better and work as a team, start doing comps etc and then she gets the arse coz she's a girl and she won't do what the promoters try to pressure her into doing, i.e. show more skin :angry: but I can't be bothered do anything aside from play with MaryJane at the moment :rolleyes:


Anyhow, I am way too old for skateboarding (39 leads inexorably to 40) getting old sucks the patootie big time :D Thinking of getting a bike instead ::D:

Don't forget to slip slop slap coz if you don't when you get older your skin will be crap!
