Re: Skateboarding? (footage included)
Thanks man. It's always fun looking back for me when I was younger. Back in the good old "helmet days" I used to call them ha.ugh i hate that song in the first video, but the actually skating was ****ing AWESOME, 2nd and 3rd videos were the best, great stuff
Dude i used skate when i was younger but i kinda gave up on it as i started getting older and getting into other stuff i still have my chris cole board tho, and yea Richie jackson is badass his style is unique
This is my cousin's video when ever i get a chance i go and skate there at vista california he usually films but he can get down with some cool tricks. Much respect to my cousin and the guys down at Vista !!
I did some when I was younger, wasn't the best at it. But I tried, and it was fun. Broke my wrist when I was 12, trying to rail slide a parking block, yay.
I always liked watching skate videos. Old Powell Peralta, Alien Workshop videos. Do remember this old video we had, at Ohio surf and skate, when Tony Hawk was there, was fun to watch. Think was back in the 80s and such.
Rodney Mullen is great to watch, the stuff he can do, damn.
Chuck Tamblyn, you said you came by Cleveland area? ever go to skate store in Lakewood called Westside Skates? Just curious.
Anyone skateboard here? BMX or inline skate even? Anyways I've been skating for 11 years now. Picked it up when the first THPS game came out. Started off with a K-Mart skateboard then years later worked my way up to a sponsorship at my local skateboard shop Ohio Surf & Skate (unfortunately the shop closed months back after 20+ years of business). I started my own skateboarding website called "Lake County Skateboarding" (R.I.P.) better known as LCS. The website turned into a major hit. I most certainly didn't expect it to become as big as it did.
I owe a lot to skateboarding in a way. I've met so many cool people over the years and have had a lot of amazing opportunities because of it. One of my favorite perks I had was the Vans Warped Tour. Every year it came to Cleveland I got to skate the halfpipe they setup which was always a lot of fun with the crowd watching you. Not to mention I had a special "athlete pass" and all the free lost energy drinks I can stomach ha.
These days I've toned down my skating a lot simply because shit hurts a lot more when you're older and I cannot afford to miss work from a broken ankle or something. I lost a lot after taking a year off for my firefighter training but I'm back into big time again for this summer and REALLY looking forward to it! Anyways here are some videos.

Little something I have online from 7 years ago? Maybe more.
