I hate to put you guys to shame, but lately that's been my job when it comes to people dissin' one of the coolest sports on the planet. Let's just say at 52 I'm an avid skateboarder of almost 40 years. Before I continue, let me just say now that I put 24k on my 2003 SV1000 last year and just put the 5th set of tires on. SO, I believe I belong here yappin me face in the wake of 2 consecutive Warp visitations. Yes, I drove up from San Diego 2 years in a row to meet some of the coolest dudes on the planet. Getting back to skatin', and cuttin to the chase, I invented a skateboarding technique called "skogging". skogging is a blend of skateboarding and jogging. Excellent exercise for skaters to work on developing an all around balance. You can go to www.skogging.com for more. This has allowed me to stay in great shape for all kinds of skateboarding. I still ride vert, race downhill and love to just cruise....

so.. there's my .02 for now. I'll add more as time goes along but for now the BBQ calls and my GF is bitchin! GET OFF THAT DAMN THING!!

skateboarding aint for everyone but if you are true american! you'll find a way to get back on and at least sidewalk surf again!

As ridiculous as it sounds, I've been searching around for stuff on the web along the lines of: "too old" "skateboard" "new"... you get the idea. Being confined to a cubicle day in and day out is driving me to find new ways to taste freedom. I'm starting to get this urge to (re)discover all those things I never did when I was younger.

I'm excited to push my boundaries, regain some balance, and quite possibly break my arm (never done that before, either!). 30 is the new 20, right? Wish me luck...
