I stopped skating because for a month straight every single time I tried to go skating I hit a stone and skinned my palms. My wheels were way too small and way too hard. Should have picked up some 75s or something...

May as well post my current setup since I got time. Get a few strange looks walking into the office with a skateboard these days though

Plus my daughters deck which sits there just waiting for her to be old enough. Very tempted to take it out but not sure how that would go down given it was a gift to her

From experience I'm inclined to think that he's not trying to save the coffee, but trying to keep his shirt unstained.


What's up with sk8 or die cunts hating longboarders so much? Is it the type of people who longboard or the "why not use a skateboard instead for that" mentality?

I think it's just people who've been skating forever and now it's cool, and everybody buys a longboarder and skating's gay all of a sudden.
I don't care, I'm using longboard trucks and wheels at the moment.. But longboards do kinda look like shit let's be honest

Maybe like if you've been punx for ages and all of a sudden green day gets big on MTV and all of a sudden cunts are ruining it for you and you're not special T__T

I reckon it's all the cunts pushing shit-foot on vinyl boards. Shit is way worse than any long board.

I can't even skate, and think they look dumb mostly because its all engineering student types who were skating on them. This was like three or four years ago though I guess.

Nothing inherently wrong with longboarding (eg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgVo1IAVrDM), but for that year or so when every other dipshit and his dog was buying a Sector 9 setup like a fucking sucker and practicing their fully-padded soul carves in midday traffic in the CBD it became bit of a faceplan.

Fuck I wish I had a photo or two of the shit-ass plywood longboards me and my friend in high school used to make. Riding the hills in Orewa on a weekday night were some good times.

Anyone going to Hilloween tomorrow? https://www.facebook.com/events/4517374 ... 4/?fref=ts

Think I might, but I'll probably do something stupid given that I've only been skating 5 months :s.

Anyone else see Christian Hosoi is in town soon. Unfortunately he's doing some talk at parachute and nothing else. Anyone read his book? On a side note, mxpx is also playing at it if anyone is into them these days

Where's a good place to get skate shit online? NZ based? Haven't had a skateboard since my last set up got nicked out of my folks' garage a couple of years back (rude little cunts...), and Invercargill is generally a bit of a shitty place for it. Buuuutttttt the skate park is currently being rebuilt and I see it's gonna have a bowl, so maybe keen to get back into falling off and looking like a retard again.

Really can't be fucked going into Quest, which I guess is the only shop around here these days.
I think it's lint.
