ALIEN ANAL 06.17.2007 11:36 AM

i use to about 6 years ago, i could do a few tricks and i was really good at ollies
but it got to hot and i gave up.

Many, many years ago, until the day (in 1980 it was), that my skateboard flew into the path of an oncoming bread van in Croydon. I was not a happy bunny, and even less when my stepdad pointed out that it was my own bloody fault. :mad:

Also - when I lived in Milton Keynes in the late 70's, it was the thing to skate down a metal children's slide at maximum speed, especially when the slide was wet. I'm afraid I was far too much of a coward to attempt this :o, also I broke my arm in the mid 70's in a "no hands on the handlebar" cycling accident, so I wasn't in a hurry to repeat that injury.

I've been to Australia twice and i skated a couple of spot's whilst i was there, it was incredible! As for the heat, you should think yourself lucky, it's raining most of the time in England.

jimbrim - D'you know about the skaters that do their stuff at the South Bank in London?

I've done that! Hearing you're skateboard snap under a car wheel is possibly the worst sound ever.:(

Yes! the South Bank's considered one of the best skate spot's in England, my mates went up the other day but i couldnt make it. Most british pro's skate their apparently, I would love to go one day.
Do you live nearby then?

Trasher02 06.17.2007 01:27 PM

Leo romero is my favorite

 


Busting a clean 50-50.

jimbrim 06.17.2007 01:47 PM

Leo Romero's awesome, i love his part in the Foundation vid 'That's Life'.

Trasher02 06.17.2007 01:52 PM

Yeah that was awesome, too bad that his part in This is skateboarding was so small.

jimbrim 06.17.2007 02:18 PM

Yea it was, although i dont think he was that popular when that video came out.
Is it any good for skating where you live?

CHOUT 06.17.2007 02:18 PM

I was gonna make a(nother) skate thread recently for this

I never skate anymore since I fractured my elbow at a concrete park hanging up on a boardslide around the bowl.

MellySingsDoom 06.17.2007 02:20 PM

jimbrim - I live in Clapham, which is a pleasant walk away from the South Bank. Mucho skateboard action happening right now.

hune.prut 06.17.2007 02:21 PM

used to.

my favourite skaters were Andrew Reynolds, Ali Bouala, Jim Greco..

my fav vid was Real to Reel.

recently have been impressed by the skating of Jerry Hsu.

I live near Livingston, home to one of the largest outdoor skateparks in Europe. It's a beauty of a park, apparently John Cardiel's favourite park ever.

I was just about to write that! his style is so smooth.

I've been skating for about 6 years, although i don't skate as much as i used to. The scene's starting to die out where i live.

Richard Pryor on Fire 06.17.2007 06:04 PM

I don't do it so much anymore, I hurt my knee but I had fun when I did it, I already posted this pick a while ago but this is me being marginally gnarly...
