Weather has been such A bummer on the east coast this year, couldn't imagine dealing with the gnarly winter they had.
Months of rain sucks here too. Montage with some friends from the weekend. Got A decent air out to wallride that felt good :34

I just watched this, and I want to go skate so bad right now.
Nice little montage b.v., got me stoked.
I can't wait to skate again.

Thanks guys, it's so humbling and inspiring to skate with all of them.
Always a fun session.

Props to all you old dudes out there getting some without a crew. Doing it solo style.
Your motivation is inspiring. I've probably gone out by myself 10 times during the last 20 years and had a full on session. Going to the store on the cruiser does not count.
Even as a young kid; my little brother skated. So I always had him to go out with.
Just like a month ago; it was a Saturday. Which usually means skate day. I wake up all hyped. Make the usual calls. My whole crew was either hurt, out of town or working. So I just ended up not skating.

This dude here was a major part of our crew. He was always down to go out. 2 years ago, he moved to Germany for a job. I talk to him once a month or so. He hardly even skates anymore, due to not having anyone to go out with. He's met a couple skater friends recently; but they are in their early 20's and he says their idea of skating is going to the skatepark and that's it. No street skating. Which is what he would like to do. So he takes a lap around the park and then just sits around and drinks beer while they play s.k.a.t.e. Without further ado; here he is, the one, the only Werm with his part from the first Washed Up Warriors video, released 2008. We miss you homie!

I like skating alone.
I do enjoy skating with friends when it works out, but no one has my schedule. And I can focus on actually skating a bit more by myself. After 20+ years of picking people up and organizing weekend adventures I am burned out on being that guy. It's easier to just go and if so someone hits me up or happens to be at the park then great. But I'm done calling 10 people before I leave the house.

Word. I've got one guy I skate with and if he's not available I'll just go solo.

Same story for me. I get tired of dealing with the logistics of getting a session together. I usually have a time frame to deal with so I send out the text where I'll be and if no one shows I skate alone. I work weekends and a lot of my friends who skate are busy during the week when I am free. I'm definitely not asocial when it comes to skateboarding. I'm fortunate to still have a lot of friends who skate.

Why skating works as an adult is that you don't need your buddies to do it.........being cool with the kids at the park isnt bad....they are generally less bitter and care more about skating than most adults.....it's a great little time out....

This is true.  I usually see the same kids at the park, and they are all out there barging it.

i usedta skate alone. yeah, w/ nobody else. ya know when i skate alone i prefer to be by myself but lately w/ the weather warming we've had a 3-4 man crew and i prefer that. it offsets the group dynamics of me and my one friend who's usually getting wicked mad and introduces us to different ideas. bruh man threw fire on flatground yesterday. i was particularly off but he made me try tricks i normally wouldn't so asides the comradery it's worth it for that. rusty keeps frontin on me but hopefully one of these days we'll add him to the mix.

I skate alone quite a bit. Most of the guys I would skate with have moved or don't skate that much.
And now the younger guys (early 20's age) are starting to hit me up to go skate a lot more.
So it's kind of motivating having that happen.

Well guys, I turned 39 a few weeks ago. My boy's coming to pick me up in about a half an hour to hit the park up for our Friday after work park session. My hip is aching a little bit from a slam I took Sunday and I think I pulled a muscle in my back this week at work so I'll have to take it kind of easy. Besides that, not much is going on.

i like skating with people but usually find that overall i'm more of a lone wolf.  it kind of goes in phases.  seems like skate friends come and go, and sometimes come back.  injuries, schedules etc..

at the end of the day i'm a lone wolf, but i love skating with people.   i kind of straddle both realms

oh yeah, i hardly ever skate all i do is work

cheers

There is something to be said about the energy from skating with friends. Obviously we feed off each other and I do tend to skate a bit better when I am thinking less. But overall if I'm putting plans with my wife on hold or playing taxi cab and picking 3 people up it's too much work. I have A dozen parks within 30 min of my house in any direction, usually someone there I know.
Plus being the guy at the skate shop everyone wants to talk about my job, and I'd rather just nerd out about actually riding my skateboard than the newest shoes we got in.

good deal floop. i can only do grinds you ollie into but i'd say speed and leaning back. it's been good out here lately, the thaw has brought more 30somethings out from under the rock they've been smoking all winter. good to see everyone and smoke butts in a t-shirt.
