Heres my story,
I used to skate ALOT about 20 years ago,
(god I feel old).
I was good, real good, then I got into BMX.
Well my son skates now.
Man have the boards changed.
When I skated, We only had one "kick tail". and our trucks were wide as were our wheels.
Over the summer, I was going out to check the mail. Our mail boxes are centrally located, so it is about 200 feet from my curb.
Well I grabbed my sons board and headed out to the street.
I jumped on the board and took off to the mail boxes. I kind of surprised myself how comfortable I was after all the years of not skating.
All my sons friends were hanging out in front of the house, and thought that It was cool as S*it, that I could ride,
Heres the good part:
I got cockey and did a couple spins, then Decided I was going to ollie up onto the curb.
I got some speed...........Ollied.......
and firmly planted the front truck into the curb.
I hit the ground hard on my shoulder, and my mail went flying.
No injury, just some hurt pride.
In all this rambling I guess the feel good thing was that I could still ride the board and do a few tricks after not skating for many years.
If you want to hear another funny story, ask Me about going snow boarding last year.
