If skating past an expensive car dealer and flicking my cigarette into a drop top Lamborghini counts

When discussions spiral into shit like this it's time to drop 250ug lsd and stare at a lake for a minute.

Window at a restaurant with a bank against the wall when i was like 15 and a pool light when I was maybe 19. We turned i on skating the pool at night and it got too hot without any water and popped. That pool ended up getting redone and filled back up anyway

Went for a skate to the bottle shop in between rain showers, oh yeah I had been drinkin an smoking a little already also... While crossing the street, slipped out from the wet ground n my board shot into the street the same moment a woman drove by. My ride was actually hanging outta the side of hers when she pulled over.

Yanked it out then she demanded my license (didn't have one at the time plus I was on my skateboard, I laughed at her), showed her my CA ID, and she went ballistic because she didn't believe that a grown man didn't have a drivers license. She then asked for my insurance and went more nuts because guess what??? I had none at the time(laughed at her again). After handing my ID over she said she was callin the cops an hold tight...

Was legally drunk on the last month of a 7 year probation, an about a block from my house, what would u do??? Threw the board down and went back to where I came from, that's what I did. Still look for that white Scion to an from work every now n again.

Found an abandoned building with a swimming pool that had blue rubber coating stuck on the floor which made it unskateable. We removed the entire coating of and made a mess.

just saw this on don brown's insta - $30k!! not sure why more companies don't do this, but i'm glad that they don't!



in the comments he says "this was period when companies realized that skaters were skating their buildings and were smart enough to scan they skate mags!"

what was it about this "period" that caused companies to do this, and why did they stop? did it end up being too expensive to go after all these skate brands, and the payouts just weren't worth the trouble?

We used to skate on a sculpture by Henry Moore. Apparently it was worth millions and we were happily grinding and sliding all over it. Good times.
If skating a sculpture counts, than everybody who has ever skated in Chicago's answer should probably be the Picasso. Picasso sculptures are pretty valuable, especially 50 foot tall iconic ones.
One time while we were skating it I asked a friend if Picasso would be stoked or bummed on us skating his sculpture. His response was "Who fucking cares? He's dead"

Cops always love telling tales about how you are destroying something expensive. "The city spent $800,000 fixing these benches last year because of you punks!"

Speaking of valuable of Chicago public art, has anyone ever done wallrides on that Chagall mosaic? You can see the Real team skating the handrail in that new Uprise 20 years video. I'd imagine that whole area would be a bust but there they are in the vid skating right by it.

Shit was a major bust when I was there. Pretty sure the Chagall mosaic is behind a bar that makes wall riding it impractical
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is ďYESĒ
I quit skating for a time due to piling out

I feel like most people arenít making truck contact (primo bails maybe?) with the Picasso so itís not getting too beat up but yeah, if that ever went up for auction it would probably be north of $150 million dollars.

Iíve only ever done a wall ride or whatever so not guilty.

one time my friends wouldn't stop skating the 5 stair at doherty high so i punched out a window and away we fled.
in retrospect, that was some pure unadulterated bullshit.
another time i couldn't do my trick over the guardrail into the bank at kenmore so i ran up onto a car to drop in on the roof, down the rear window nad of the trunk like that scene in big brother shit at mardis gras.
well, my foot went into the windshield and i bailed the rest of the trick.

fuck yes, i did the same thing with a piece of marble from an old skate spot that i used to skate at when i was just beginning. they rebuilt it and changed some stuff so the spot is still skateable but there are less things to do. it's kinda cool to keep that kind of shit, like kalis with the love park tile

I was skating at Biebel's park when my board flew out and chipped one of his teeth.
