I'm from Boston and I very much dislike the fact that these people and photos are associated with the Boston skate scene.

why?

and
i'm going to boston later this month. will i skate? fuck no. but i'll probably drink a shitload, so somebody get in touch.

why?

a) because i'm not going alone.
b) i've got lots of sight seeing to do.
c) i've got an expo to attend, sadly this isn't purely a pleasure trip.
d) girlfriend
e) i don't have any weed
f) i don't want to embarrass myself
etc etc etc

explanation valid. and aq does suck, but kudos to anyone who can ride away from the manual pad.

I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.

Bump.

I'm going to Boston for the weekend. Leaving in two hours.

Anyone have any good tips for spots/watering holes/treats?

I know my way around pretty well, but haven't skated downtown in a few years.

Is the aquarium where kids in raver pants go to skate flatground?

Copley?

I remember Underground Snowboards, but that shit's been dead for years, huh?

If it's too cold I'll just drink a coupla Ha'poons, guy.
i saw my grandma bail off a 4 set once in my house and she even got up and came to red lobster after.

Any of the cats that work there will help you out.

But if you meet a geezer named Jad, hide your llamas. He'll touch them.

hope nobody minds the bump, I figured it beats starting a new topic..

anybody got any mellow spots in the davis square/somerville/tufts/medford area? im just getting back into skating fully after a few years of laziness and Id love some ledges, banks, or nice flat ground to get used to skating again.  is there also seriously not a skatepark in boston?

is Koston gonna be there? cant wait for the instagram posts. anyway - the girl team spending a day with an old college friend? something sounds a little faggy about that haha..

so yeh - boston has basically zero decent parks - go to hyde park if you are ever there - holy shit that place is depressing. i saw some good street stuff but was too busy getting drunk. orchard has a nice mini ramp.. yup.

that being said - boston is a really cool town - plan on going back soon

I'm going to be in downtown boston tomorrow, plan on swinging by orchard and just looking for spots, the only one I'm aware of is the little marble plaza across from the aquarium t stop, whats the bust factor in boston, and are the cops trying to snatch boards and whatnot?
