Here's a shot of my little nephew. He got started at age 5 I think he's under 10 there.
My brother custom shaped that board.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


I miss skateboarding. It was the center of my life for a long time. I was probably 10 or so when I started. I skated up until I was about 20 or so. I never got really good at it, but it was just fun. I caught the fear at some point and eventually just stopped.

There is an old head dude out here who built this crazy ass ramp in his house. His house is on the top of this steep hill and he built some crazy freestyle addition off of the back that had a huge bowl in it. He has punk shows there sometime too. It's a blast. The bands set up on the edge of the ramp and people just rip all night in the bowl. I'll try to track down some photos if I can.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


Ah, the fear... I had the fear today trying to ride the bowl.
All those memories of high speed slams will do that.
My biggest fear currently is rolling an ankle because I tend to land heavy on the front from not skating in my previous form... Hard to get that back, certainly not like riding a bike!

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


Damn I love skating.
Had an impromptu session tonight ;got a call around 6 to go session around 9.
Got to a spot, skated, went to another spot, got home just after midnight.
Good times. Been going to the park every Sunday for "Church of Skatan" session for 4 or 5 hours.
Hope you other skaters have been getting out this season.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


Another mid week session last night!
This time we hooked up a generator and 4 led lights at the skate park, in the bowl.
Got a solid 3 and a half hours in there.

Here's my son taking second place in a contest in McKinney Texas. He killed it with a 360 over the spine. He's 14, first and third were age 16. He's on the far right.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


Any love here for longboarding?

I was never into skating as a teenager but going into my mid 20s I've been trying lots of things most kids start early on.

I didn't have a chance to do much skating this summer since I was out in the sticks most weekends but I've enjoyed what I've done so far, still tons to learn though.

I can't skate, but a few years ago I use to ride my bmx in parking garages and the longboarders would be in there. Was some crazy stuff.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


I'm actually a good skater. I think my generation invented pool skating. I can remember when urethane wheels first came out when I was in grade school. Then G&S changed skating forever when I was in high school. Pool skating took off. I was pretty damn good. In my mind anyway.

Re: Skateboarding, Persistance, Jamie Thomas


I've been absolutely enjoying skating the bowl this season.
Let me see if I can grab a short clip of myself or someone else from last night's session...

Really good to see it being encouraged.
