Thread: Old Skool SK8

  1. #21
    Love love love skateboarding. Started at 9, stopped at 22. Street, pool, miniramp, all game. My first 'real' board was a Santa Cruz Christian Hosoi, loved it and rode it until it came apart.

    The only protectors i ever put on the board were the siderails to protect the board from cracking on rails. Later even those were removed. Far too heavy

    Haven't touched a skateboard in 14 years. But this thread gives me an itch yo try it again.

    Btw have any of you switched to snowboarding? I did and it's awesome!

    Cool thread \m/

    First deck was a Plan-B Danny Way. Can't really say I skate anymore, although currently I am in a throwback skatepunk band; which is hella fun!

    I'm singing on the first song and the second song is on all of Vision Street Wear's classic video reissues, this is PRS relevant as I played my CE on every studio album I have ever done.

    Hope it gets someone out there psyched to GO SKATE!


    That is fantastic! Love the music (and the video), that's the kind of stuff I listened to when I was skating. Couple of years later, it was all baggy pants and hip hop - WTF?

    EDIT: just looked up a couple of the decks I owned - fond memories!

    This one was always my favourite: World Industries Mike Vallely Barnyard (doubletail)

    Really??! Haha! Well, we are demoing a few songs on Sunday; I'll have to get something up once we get one or two mixed! Like I say, nothing earth shattering music-wise....just fast and melodic punk rock! most fun I have had in a band in awhile!

    You wouldn't drive an F1 car on the Dakar Rally. Similarly, this 35" monster would never see a skatepark.

    And my Bauer "fruitboots" only get worn when I'm suited up and holding a stick. That's not fighting. That's Hockey.

    I'm just joking around buddy! If there every was a group of people that fear change more than guitarists it would be skateboarders.

    My old band did a song for some company that made a longboard/snowboard thing that had two rollerblade-like wheels that was supposed to simulate the feeling of carving on a snowboard. Good thing we cashed that check fast! They were out of the market in less than a year, not that I would EVER wish the same fate on that morally and ethically responsible company known as BMW.

    I think one of the coolest things about skateboarders is their general resistance to companies outside of the sport. I saw firsthand through endorsement deals how hard Adidas and Nike tried to break into the sport, with little to no success for Nike.

    Being the prissy-nut job that I am, I do really want these Diane Von Furstenberg Sk8 shoes though!

    Found the actual ad, and I was surprised to see that they ARE still around!
