I saw that NT needed a skateboarding thread, so i figured i make one.

feel free to post anything skateboard related. favorite shoes, graphics, pictures, skaters, parts/videos, stories, etc...

I'll start it off with the part that got me into skateboarding 13 years ago.

Cool thread.

I don't even have any Jordans. Ive been skating janoskis for the last two years. Haha pretty much my whole collection.

Im a 1999 beginner. Didn't get my own board til 2001 tho. Always liked skating but couldn't afford a set up. Aunt wasn't trying to spend $100 + on board. Plus being Black and from the hood, dudes wanted to beat u up cuz u were doing some "white boy" stuff. Lame.

Anyway, skateboarding and the culture is forever in my blood. I'm creeping on 30 and still skate 3-4 times a week.

These new dudes are something else, though. Amazing how Mariano and Koston keep up with the young bucks.

I will skateboard until the day I'm unable.

some of the powell/bones brigade guys skated the 1's back in the late 80's, there's many lists where they have them as the all-time best skate shoe.



then jordan came out with the jordan flipsyde's back in 09 that were horrible

 nice to see someone have the love for skateboarding like i do 


good to see you skating still, i'm getting my diet and exercise in so i can keep pushing til i'm dead.

these young kids though are putting me to shame, if you knew a few switch tricks back in the day, you were known in your city but now what these youngsters are doing 


glad all the "older/90's-mid 00's" generation skaters are still ripping.

Around 2002 a friend of mine had a poster/magazine cutout on his wall with someone skating in white/silver Jordan XI lows

I wanna say is was Karl Watson or Benny Fairfax... but I really dont know.


He was wearing these:

Was he skating in SF by some pier? I think I know what you're talking about.


Here's my 3 top scenes from one of my favorite movies.

One dude I will always enjoy watching is Reynolds. He's getting older and older yet still putting these young bucks to shame. His kickflip at the end of his stay gold part though......

Sounds like it could be right... especially if it was KW, but I dont really remember the specifics.... the only reason it really sticks out in my memory was because I thought it was so crazy seeing someone skate in those shoes.




Yeah Right was such a dope vid :smokin
The same dude with poster Im talking about had me believing it was real...smh :lol: Took me forever to realize it was called "Yeah Right" because they were using chroma key ...Had me like with ups like that why isnt Rick Mcrank in the NBA

That Owen Wilson part had me going for a few months :lol:
And torey killed in that part.
and that burnquist part almost had me in tears, if he and danny way ever do a video together :x

Man I miss skateboarding. Got a whole setup hardly touched. Messed my knees up a bit too much when I was younger. Ah well.

Deathwish made the homie MOOSE pro today!!!

the one who nicknamed me penguin, the one whose fridge we use to raid after school in jr high bc he lived across the street, the one who took me with him to go skate everywhere, the one who hooked me up with fresh boards on the daily. haven't seen him since high school but man i'm so happy for him, he's real humble and one of the nicest people in the world 




real tears were shed by me 


wish i could have made it to be there in person.
