    i wish i still skated

    new to this forum, and i notice that its like the skateboard world back in late 80's early 90's when skateboarding was dead again. lots of who is more hardcore than who. remember being a "poser" ? everything comes back around, although i think riding a fixie is on its first wave. i ride fixed cause i like the risk, its rolling the dice depending on your skills, just like skating vert or sliding a 20 stair handrail. crash or burn.
    so yeah i wish i still skated.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Sim Cain the drummer for the Rollins Band?

    (You can see I miss the early 90's too).

    yeah i started skating in the mid 90s and got sponsored right during the big wave of skateparks being built and skating's poularity. pretty soon 7 year olds were busting all the tricks that i had been sponsored for a few years before, and i started getting hurt all the time. i had to quit because of injuries, and i miss it a lot still. sad that all of this happened before my 18th birthday. but i still skate for fun, there's no reason to give it up altogether, just gotta be smarter about it. I still haven't gotten the same rush as I used to from skating, but riding my bikes is getting closer all the time.

    Mate. If you say 'I wish I still skated', and then don't, you aren't a real skater. A real whatever keeps going for there own enjoyment and doesn't stop just because it becomes popular.

    And I think the risk you mentioned, consciously or subconsciously, is the risk of you looking like a poser.

    I started skating in 88 ish, started doing ollies and actual tricks anyway. Left the board about 93 or early 94, and started back about 3 years ago. It's off and on, had a real solid period when I started back, twisted my ankle bad, couldn't walk on it for 2 months, so that hindered some. Haven't been skating recently, need to get back at it. I don't get the rush I use to but it's a good time, I enjoy skating with friends more than by myself, pushes the session, stoke, etc... I get that 80's skate commeradery with the bike scene, if it's big enough to call it that here. Anyway, just have fun, thats what all this **** is actually about anyway.

    Are we in pumpkin or squash coloured terror alert??? I'm a bad 'merican...I don't pay attention.

    As for skating. I've had a board ever since '84. Used to sell them @ the wholesale level for a living in Chicago. I still push around but I can't do anything good. I doubt I can ollie a board on it's side anymore. Last time I really skated I was just carving around in the pool @ the old Vans park here in Detroitishika. If you want to skate...go skate.

    i wish i could still skate like i used to. there's no way i can kickflip 8 stairs or grind a handrail anymore.
    i shattered my wrist skating a bowl and had to have surgery. totally freaked me out.
    i'll still mess around, but no big stuff.

    I think we're in squash. The UK is in ketchup. As are fixed gear bicyclists of every stripe.

    do people in wyoming note the daily status of the homeland security advisory system?
    i would think it's the last thing you'd have to keep up on.
    not that i pay attention to it... it's probably the worst thing ever invented.

    I skated, albeit poorly, for the majority of high school. Now that I'm 28, I can do far more impressive tricks on a fixed gear bike than I ever could on a skateboard or BMX when I was 18.

    I wish I could shred like Dan Drehobl http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twGZvkW5jt8, but since my wish is unattainable by me, I think you should follow through on your wish.

    Pope didn't claim Detroit on the Vans park...I said it was Detroitishika which it is. If you really want to get technical it's now the Modern Skate Park since Vans closed it down.
