I don't like people who skate with headphones in at the skatepark

Never understood why this bother people. As long as the skater is paying attention to the flow of the park and not getting in peopleís way, whatís the problem? Not everyone wants to be your friend some people want to keep to themselves and listen to some jams. Considering how judgmental skaters are I donít blame them.

found the guy who skates with headphones

I am 34 and have been skateboarding for 22 years ... I have never dropped in.

I've only dropped in on a 3ft quarter pipe.  I have a bad fear of heights so standing at the edge of 5ft quarterpipe as a kid was terrifying.  Now I'm 33 and haven't dropped in since that 3. I've started from the flat of a mini and made my way to coping, rolled in a couple times, but never a proper drop in.

Iíd be perfectly ok with never seeing another hippie jump for the rest of my life.
 

There are way too many and only one out of every thirty or so that I see is actually technically impressive.

I wiped out the other day on a fairly simple curb trick and hit/ cut open my eyebrow. I currently have stitches and a black eye.
Itís not doing much for my confidence as an old guy. I probably wonít ever skate without a helmet again and thatís fine with me...

Also, my frontside 180 Ollies are atrocious and make me look like Iíve only skated for 3 months when Iím relaitybive skated for 3 decades.

I'm super envious of people who can skate well stoned. I lose so much coordination and 2nd guess everything plus I get tired so quickly.

i also had one of those iconic JFA stickers on the top, between the two pieces of grip, which i thought was the coolest shit in the world, until I remember quite vividly Bill Tocco walking up and going: ďWhatís JFA stand for, just another fucking attitude?Ē

What a dick. What else do you expect from the most jacked skater.


hah, yeah, i haven't seen him since he got back into bodybuilding and all, but over the years i've sessioned with him, and it's all good. i came to understand the whole JFA/"just another fucking attitude" thing was from shit Midwestern heads got from dudes out west--i guess even Brian Brannon and them...who knows.

i respect what Tocco did as a skater and his limited time as a pro (destroyed his knee not too long after turning pro, from what i understand)--all of those NSA contests he won, and those years of him going back and forth with Blaize Blouin (RIP)...i've never seen a photo like this one of Tocco doing a "one-footed channel hip hop" like this one, from the year he won the NSA finals:

It's hard for me to ollie up anything. I only ollied up a ledge once and it was by accident. I can barely ollie up curbs. It really sucks to say but I've never cruised around downtown ollieing up curbs because I'm so bad at it. This year is the year.

I've always wanted to f/s boardslide a handrail and ollie down several small sets of stairs in succession but I've never done either properly (kind of did a f/s board once). I'm concerned that I'll never get around to it, and will become too old to do them and feel badly about it for the rest of my life.

Also I don't mind parkour, I think it's kind of cool.

No disrespect intended here but how long have you skated for and what do you skate if you canít Ollie? Strictly Mini ramp and bowl ?

I live in the cold. Iím a huge bitch and I barely skate between sometime in November and February unless I can go to a parking garage/tunnel. I can also skate my garage when my roommates arenít storing stuff in there. But still, itís cold and I bitch out quick unless the temperature is greater than -5.

I tell myself if I ever reinstate my licence/get a car, it will be way easier to get to indoor spots I can skate in the winter. I hope Iím not lying to myself.

That's a good idea. I'll caveman up the curb first for practice.

I can definitely ollie, but I don't ollie up things that much. More onto things and off things. I'm just lazy in that regard.

I've never been a fan of Chris Cole, there's just something about his skating that has always bored me to no end. Beyond technically gifted, not arguing that, but dudes parts make me reach for the fast forward button with the quickness.

Gonz ruined Dill and Kostons career.

If true, this is the only thing Gonz has ever done that I like.

I like his Dying to Live part, and no amount of me ever talking shit about him changes that. Sucks what he became career-wise afterwards but not everyone can go out like Heath. *Career exit-wise, not that they're even comparable.

I feel like Cobra Coles wheels of fortune in 411 issue 40 is an often over looked chapter.
I dug it like crazy back then, still do.

I kind of see where you're coming from here. When I first heard about Chris Cole I thought he was just some middle-aged dude that tried really hard to get good at skating, and eventually succeeded in being able to do nearly every flip trick switch and regular.

But while we're on the subject of not seeing why a certain pro skater is acclaimed, I can honestly say I have never seen why anyone would think P-Rod is that impressive. Sure, he's doing the tricks, but there's something missing there. I used to watch people say, "Oh my god, P-Rod inspired me to skate," and I'd think to myself, "Wtf are you smoking? He's kind of wack..."  Whatever tho.

The only the P-rod has ever inspired me to do is not buy Primitive. They both sold McRibs but at the end of the day, it's Cole for me. I don't need to see 10 switch front heels in a row.

Not even, like, his skating? I mean yeah he seems like an insufferable dork but every time he steps on a board itís kinda magical.

Q:How can anyone hate mark gonz sk8?
A: they are small children that only know about skateboarding world with Tomy hawk pro skater and skateparks. They donít know the past and have never actually street skated so they are basically dumb
B:they are an old bitter person that doesnít seem to want to accept that everything they ever enjoyed on a toy is because of some other old guy they never met but used to warship or they met them and they didnít live up to their expectations because people are just regular people at the end of the day.
C:you are on slap so itís all just bullshit
