I learned how to ollie on a shitty K Mart board on carpet at a birthday party in March of 1999.  I had a real board by April, and proceeded to get my first hipper within 30 seconds of trying to do an ollie on my smooth garage floor.

10 years bitch!

Got a board in 1999.  I started late.

I used to borrow my cousin's plastic dinosaur board though...that thing was a BEAST.

Started a year and a half ago. I'm learning fast and quite honestly I have the internet for breeding and fueling my love for the industry while I can't skate. It's funny how just watching skateboarding can make you better at it.

i started riding a skateboard when i was like 4 or 5 years old rolling down the driveway. I started doing tricks when i was 8 or 9, and got really into it in 6th grade. Been doing it since.

Ha!It  is good to remember how you started skateboarding!

It was 7 years ago when i started. I was sick of the new basketball coach who came in the team and i started getting sick of this team game. So i started doing something of my own i borrowed a board from a neighbour and started skateboarding instead of going to practise with the basketball team. I remember my dad was extra mad about that especially when i was injured badly a year and a half later. So i quit skateboarding for two years,1 year rehab and 1  with parental conflicts
and some fear of stepping back on board. Eventually i started skating again  on my last year at school because i needed something to escape from the stress of the exams and since then i havent stopped!

19 hundred and 75  in the year of our LORD.  Killer times, no one worried about who's shoes you wore or if you rode trannys, street, schoolyards or the image you posed as, you just skated.  I was in the second grade and I was asked to stay after class because I didn't do so hot on some test, my reply to my teacher was I said I couldn't because I had to go skateboarding .......  I spent a shit ton of time in the library though, as the school had a subscription to Skateboarder Mag and Action Now. Plus books like The Skateboarding Book If I remember there was a whole section of books that were skate related. That was back in the days when every town had a local skate park. I wonder what ever happened to them all.....



Make the most of what your city offers while you can. Nothing lasts for ever. No park was ever dozed because it was outdated.... Better yet, hook up with the old guys/girls that are lifers and do it DIY......
