I totally wish kids were into feeling the entire board and moving around instead of spots, gear or angles. The potential of skate is more limitless when you fully skateboard instead of pump out trickedytrickedoutness

Trying to keep this thread where it's easy to find so thought I'd bump it with these clips I shot of my friend Ralph today ( my back sucked again so I figured this would be a good way to pass the time )  Not sure how to upload insta videos or if you can but heres a link

He turned 40 this year and had 2 knee surgeries in the last 3 ... I've got nothing but respect for this guy





well those 2 tricks are enough to see he's pretty good!!

also, I came across this on youtube, full-on old man contest

Frenchie...
We've been doing the Tampa VIP/Team Manager/Old Man contest for about 8-9 years now.  It was actually Stacy Lowery's idea to do it a long time ago.  Fun stuff, makes you actually try to land things you haven't done in a long time.  There's some good dudes in that clip.  Josh Friedberg is in there, Ira (filmer that did the 360 flip over the hip), Zitzer with the super good ollie off the extension, Brink, Kevin Wilkins etc.  It's a fun event.  Time for me to get my legs back, it's coming up in 1 month!

I was actually wondering who did the smith and ollie off the extension......I thought it was Manzoori!
they have a little bit of the same style/build, don't they?

anyways it's a damn good idea!

Yeah, I could see the similarities in their style  Frenchie. 
The idea was actually pretty genius by Stacy.  Many of us ex-pros, TM's and what not are at the contest anyways, so he said we should get off our fat-asses and get busy for a contest.  It's been pretty fun...like I said...just to actually try.  Sometimes at 41 years old that you need that extra motivation to really get going.  I'm sure that's one of the reasons that on a MUCH larger stage and extent the Vans Combi contest is so good.  All these vets really don't want to look too silly out there and most of them just downright kill it.  Just takes a little motivation these days.

20 years too late I would say.  We could have done a lot more than the Star Wars graphic I had.  Although I do like the simplicity.  Seeing COS players walking around Agenda as Darth Vader and Leia was a bit much for me.

I actually hate seniors. Nothing is more unsettling to a black man then a room full of old white people. I just like to assume they're all old, ignorant, racist xenophobes. Is there something wrong with that?

i think that sometimes too, especially in the south. but by the same token when i see brett the hitman hart i thought you were a white canadian wrestling fan so i guess i'm as ignorant as everyone i think is ignorant.

Stoked to see my friend Adam in that clip from 2010. That's an awesome idea for a contest.

We've been doing the Tampa VIP/Team Manager/Old Man contest for about 8-9 years now.?  It was actually Stacy Lowery's idea to do it a long time ago.?  Fun stuff, makes you actually try to land things you haven't done in a long time.?  There's some good dudes in that clip.?  Josh Friedberg is in there, Ira (filmer that did the 360 flip over the hip), Zitzer with the super good ollie off the extension, Brink, Kevin Wilkins etc.?  It's a fun event.?  Time for me to get my legs back, it's coming up in 1 month!

Stickman,
Anyone who is over 30 can skate in it really.  Just homies who are in the industry and want to get down.  I do remember someone being a TM at like 24 years old entering one time.  Like he had just got done skating Tampa Am the year before and was a TM now and entered for some reason.  He did a kickflip back noseblunt down one of the rails and it was so awkward cause we're all out there struggling on getting onto the ledge and dude is dropping HAMMERS.  He kind of got clowned on the mic and didn't skate a 2nd run.  Like entering a beginner contest when you're pro.  Got to know your place a little bit. 
But to answer your question...yeah.  Filmers are totally welcome!

A weight belt/ankle weights would be funny for rippers...or a fat suit.  Or just Tonya Harding pole bashing 20 year old dudes who try to enter and giving them old man knees...

It's Sunday...Get your old bones warmed up, get out there and get some, and come home and tell the rest of us about it. I've had it with the indoor park and can't wait for Spring, but I gotta make the best with what I've got right now.

Got out there for a couple-mile hike in 2'+ powder to a frozen waterfall on snowshoes with a 30lb baby strapped to me.

Cross training?

My city is usually dead on Sunday's. I parked my car at the local skate shop then skated around the metro area. I was by myself because most of the guys I skate with were either injured or working. Since I was alone, I stopped and took pics of graffiti on trains going by and also took the elevator up a parking deck. I sat on top of the parking deck for a while and shot more photos, then I cruised down the 8 levels. Security came after me around level 4 but I beat him to the bottom and kept going down the street.

All in all, fun day. We've had some cold temps the past week but it was 65 today. It was a beautiful day to skate in Alabama.

*I suppose this pic is the equivalent to a skate selfie but I shot it while cruising down the street.

Sounds like a rad Sunday cruise. Confused the shit out of me with the "graffiti on trains going by", until you said Alabama and I realized you must be talkin freights. Nice selfie too brah  8)

Skated for a good 40 minutes yesterday with the semi-warm weather the east coast had this weekend, in the high 40's. It was like skating on the beach with all the sand. Woke up this morning with a spasm on my left thigh. Popping a good feeling ollie is my nemesis these days.

Actually been able to skate 4 out of the last 5 days, despite temps mostly being in the 20s & below. At one point today I rolled by a high school & saw some kids watching me out their classroom window.

All these years later I still remember so clearly staring out the window of some classroom, the teacher droning on, & me desperately wanting to be outside skating. Now, here I am, 41 years old, & I still get this giddy, "playing hooky" kinda feeling when I roll by a school in the middle of the day.

Like: haha, I don't have to go to school & you do....

Real mature, right?: )

A good sesh down the local indoor park today with a few other "oldies". Totally fucked now though. Didn't do my warm down stretches so I'm regretting it.
