Title: After 7 years off I'm back on again ( new Connecticut cement )
Post by: MANIMAL on August 03, 2008, 11:16:57 AM
Haven't skated for the last 7 years - not sure why - the guys I used to ride with don't anymore and I got distracted by girls and jobs and shit...well 7 years later I'm back and today was my first day.   It felt good - the first fall...brings me right back to the early days of blood and smiles.

 Although it will take me a few more sessions to get my balance back and confidence up I'm happy to report that a town nearby where I live has a pretty decent cement park...never did I ever think Id ride a cement park like all the ones on the west coast - figured Id be secluded to the indoor fantasy lands I was used to back in the day.

It felt good to get out and just cruise a bit but im def gonna need a wider board - the old 7.5'er i dug outta the closet isnt wide enough for me to balance my fat ass on anymore!


well enough from me - hope I didnt bore you all too much - im just stoked to be back on the board again!

Tight park, I have only cement park half the size of that and greatful for it. Just one three level board with a snake run going around it posing as the street course with rails and pump bumps.
Get back on that horse and enjoy it.

big wood is always more fun.
loose truck save lives.
