The idea of "You have to be a dick like those EMB guys to be a real skater." I mean, this was when my friends and I were in junior high and were still figuring shit out, but I specifically remember an instance where a perfectly nice kid that I was actually friends with in elementary school came up to me to ask me about what kid of board he should get for Christmas and I spit in his CCS catalog and laughed at him.

To this day, when I whip out a pair of old, raggedy DC slides that i keep in my trunk in case of an urgent need, there is almost always someone asking me "are those some fake Dolce and Gabbanas?".

I thought skating would be easy. I expected to learn tricks immediately and never struggle. So when I did struggle I thought it meant ďI canít do that trickĒ. That led to me skating like once every few weeks and doing the same tricks every time. I spent more time and money on getting hammered than skating. Luckily Iím still alive and fortunate enough to skate often and learn new tricks now.

When I started skatebloarding at age 5 in 1983 this is all I wanted to be.

I had no idea who he was but at the time I saw this as my future and it was everything to me.

Well into the tech era all I cared about was being a punk.

Being a skater was just part of that.

All these posers who hated punk would be outa here rocking a business suit.

Only I would be left.

I was right. I skated longer than all my haters.

It didn't take long for Grosso and Danforth to take the top spot in my preteen mind.

John too.

I always recognized that Gator was a poser.

I couldn't be like Duane. I tried super hard but I had no idea what to do.

That look tho. It was hella powerful.

Grosso hill bomb with a beer was the ultimate tho.

In my opinion that's the best non transition photo in skate history

That my much older brother's Fibreflex with gullwing trucks and kryptonite wheels was the best board in the world and you could do anything on it you just had to be good enough.

Christian Slater really was just that good in Gleaming the Cube.

Alsp doing a triple flip made you the best skateboarder in the world. And that the World Championships to decide this was probably just a bunch of dudes all cheering each other on as they tried super hard to do triple flips. Like 'maybe this will be the year some one gets one'.

When I first started skating (toysrus board) ended getting all chipped up and gross. I thought thats how boards were suppose to be skated. So when i got my first real skateboard (plan b sheckler) I proceeded to take the fresh grip job and scratch it up darkslide style. To "break the board in"

All of this sounds like a Matt Christopher book.
