Your first skateboard
« on: August 12, 2007, 03:31:38 PM »
I saved by mowing lawns and looking after the neighborhood lady's cats.

A blank deck that was the shape of a Psycho Stick (I covered the bottom with a big Vision Street Wear sticker)
Fluro green Street Sucker Trucks (cheap Australian Tracker copies)
Black Alva Wheels from the bargain bin
Green griptape (to match the trucks)
Rails with the finger cut out's in them

i saw the other kids rolling around and thought it was amazing that you could make a skateboard flip without using your hands.
so with the money i got from my birthday and went out to a shop and bought a jason dill AWS deck with venture trucks, AWS wheels, and some black panthers or something

anybody remember cream skateboards or something like that? I'm pretty sure it had a Campbell's soup can on it.

I couldn't find an image for them, but the clear green 55mm wheels that corresponded with this deck




And I got into it (sadly) because me and my friends were playing THPS all the time, and wed walk around like 'It'd be so cool if someone did _______ on __________'. My friend got a deck right before christmas and so did I.

He quit three months later.

Extreme Pro Board, from Canadian Tire.

The entire deck was wrapped in some thin plastic, and I though it was there to protect your board.

I had plastic on my griptape and the bottom of my board for like 4 months, until some guy at a skateshop told me...

When I was growing up our next door neighbors had a pool and I kind of had a crush on their daughter, so I used to hang out over there all the time to swim and chill with her. This was like 1984-85, and I was 10 or 11. They had a skinny old yellow 70ís banana board, and I used to ride it all the time, Iíd try and jump it off their porch and stuff, I had no concept of what an ollie or any other tricks were back then. Then they gave the board to me, and I started cruising around on it through the streets of my neighborhood.
The next year, 1986, my best friend got a Vision Psycho Stick and Powellís Future Primitive video, and we were really hyped on skating. So for my birthday that year (21 years ago tomorrow) I got my first legit set up- A Powell Peralta Caballero mini deck with red grip, G&S trucks, and white Powell ratbones wheels. This was my first pro deck-

Iíve been hooked ever since, for over 20 years now. Iíll roll until I die.

My first board was some garbage Variflex from like Sports Authority.  The graphic was a can that said "Chubbys Chicken Chili".  I thought I was the shit because I had metal axles while the rest of my friends had the shitty plastic trucks that came with Nash boards.

My first real board was a Toy Machine Ed Templeton deck.  I can't remember for sure what the trucks were but I think they were Tracker.  The wheels escape me too but I'm pretty sure they were Toy Machine, I had a Shorty's hardware kit.  It's funny the, day I got that board I went to straight to my friend Jim's house and we skated in front of his house for like three hours.  I was 12.  When I started skating again like six months ago, I did the same exact thing.  It's been nine years and nothing has changed about me at all.
First of all, I want to thank god for giving you all so much, and me so little...

Saved, saved, saved (raking lawns, shoveling driveways); bought a Per Welinder street shape deck.
Saved, saved, saved...meanwhile my friend had a whole setup but a busted deck. So we put my deck on his trucks/wheels and had "joint custody" for a while. Finally got my Tracker ultra-lights and bought a used set of Hosoi rockets of my friend Jeremy.

Some used AWS(I think) slick.

Then I bought a new blind deck with indys, reds and spitfires.  I ground those trucks into oblivion.

Blue banana board, my brother and I would lay on our stomach on it superman style and the other would push. Back and forth on the sidewalk. That stopped when I was pushing him,  it hit a rock and he slid on his face. Then saved money to buy a Variflex Hi-tail from Toys R Us. So awesome!!! First good board was Mark Gonzales Vision, the one with the face, black with Ventures and OJ 2's. Totally Awesome!!! Plus a Lance Mountain primitives running t-shirt.
im not saying its ridiculous to hit a kid once and a while

My very first one was a board my friend gave to me:

An old birdhouse that had been in the rain for months I'm guessing
Completely rusted trucks, bearings, hardware, etc.
Flatspotted wheels

Then, my stepdad bought me a board from Roses the next day

My first real board was a World Industries complete (they were out of Zero boards, HAHA). I bought that with report card and Christmas money....

my grandma would go to sams club every weekend, and id wonder off into the sports department and would chill there for like an hour or until she was done.

there i saw silver surfer boards, there was always one out of the packaging and i would just roll on it and what not. after about four months of this my grandma bought it for me.

sometime later i got a shop setup. the only thing on it that wasnt basic was the ventures which would have been gullwings, but they ran out of gullwings, thank god.

My brother had an 80s Nash board that we would butt board down our driveway with.  I wanted my own so my parents got me a Toys R Us one that was a modern shape.  I wanted the 80s pig style board but they didn't have it.  I was bummed yet stoked, but that was first skateboard.

I saw my friend ollie over a board and I was so psyched.

I went online and found a zero board with an american flag theme... then proceded to get american flag grind king trucks, with the wheels to match the deck... Zero bearings as well. 

Slap would have hated me as a child.
