      Happy skatey day....I havent been on my old powell peralta for about 3 year's. It tickles a bit more when I slam than it use to. I lived on my board between the ages of 13 - 18. Still love watching Steve Caballero shredding in the pool and occasionly watch the old bones brigade, future primitive and animal chin vid's. Skate safe y'all and for any oldies like me thinking about going for a carve don't break a hip!!!!!!!!!:D:thumbsup:

      I grew up watching all those videos, watched them religiously every day after school. I was lucky enough to go to the premier of the Public Domain movie in LA. Pretty cool to see all your skate heroes in one room.

      I'd go for a skate but with it being 112 out, i'm not feelin' it:p:

      My first "real" board was a Caballero. I still ride when I can, but I'm definitely not as good as I used to be.

      i grew up in the late 80's/early to mid 90's and my all time favs were steve caballero, tony hawk, basically the whole bones brigade, willie santos and eric koston. although i skateboarded and still do (got my flip deck on krux trux), i was a BMX kid (and still do). there is so much security these days though that street riding is almost impossible. you are pretty much stuck to riding in skateparks.

      I was lucky enough to grow up at this place and its still there! Apparently the worlds oldest snake run still around.

      Started when I was 7 on a plastic banana board gave it away for a few years then got caught in the craze of the 80's. Its no del mar but its a sweet track. Dropping in from that vert never failed to scare the living s*** out of me:D

      for me skateboards were a natural progression from a scooter(think Little Rascals) to a steel clamp on outdoor skate mounted to the bottom of a 2x4.

      By the time I was in Jr high kids were making laminated boards in woodshop(talk about heavy!), and the skateboard world was born! zukmam

      Since we're all waxing 80's nostalgic skateboarding, there's a good skateboarding documentary about Christian Hosoi called Rising Sun. It documents his rise to fame and his descent into drug use. A lot of skate stars in there as well as the late great Dennis Hopper narrating.

      You can stream the movie on Netflix, here's the trailer:

      Funnily enough there is/was a video somewhere of me dropping in off that when I was in year 11 (16 yo) We made it for media studies:D Got no idea what happened to it, never got a copy:(. Search parameter may read "fat bastard drops in at albany skateboard track":D


      S***! Dennis Hopper's dead?
