    I have four skateboards.

    I spray painted one of them. I still have my first skateboard but the grip tape on it is like almost gone like I can't get a grip on it. I'm making a fifth one with one of my friends.

    Skate For Food...nah, I Have A Job!

    I love to skate and conveniently live between about five skateParks. I have only been skating again for a few months and have been getting better! I recently made it on a team with some of my friends! Pretty fun!

    I started this some months ago. I didn't want to die idiot I suppose. And I liked it. I don't skate very often, only from time to time, so it doesn't improve as fast as it could. So far I'm on the board, and I've got some balance. I still have some problems to balance/turn on the...

    I've been skating since I was in the 7th grade.

    Whenever I can't surf because the water is to cold or the waves are flat, skateboarding is a great alternative. Balance is more important though, concrete stings more than water.

    One Of My Many Crashes

    The object of this stunt I was attempting was supposed to happen like this. I would be skating down a hill on a longboard, then I would jump off that board onto another board and do a front flip over a trash can. Well, I surprisingly jumped successfully off the long board onto...

    Need Help

    Alright. I skate in (very) amateur. I don't skate much, but I'd like to skate more, to become decent and move downtown with my board. I have some questions. I want to carve better, and when I go faster it's difficult. I can't nearly carve to the right (goofy). Is there a...

    Several months ago I had to finally get a new

    board. I love the thing, but I do miss the old one. This is the story of said former skateboard: in the late fall of the year 2002, my family purchased me my very first true skateboard. If memory serves me right, it was a seven-inch wide Toy-Machine brand board with aluminum...

    Rediscovering My Release Valve

    From the time I was old enough to understand what a skateboard was, maybe 3 or 4 years old, I have really liked skateboarding. I've never been good at it, but it has still always really appealed to me. As soon as I was old enough to push a lawnmower I worked for what seemed like...
