Quoted from pinballjah:

No value to this board? I thought these were rare. Thanks.

I don't collect Alva, so I'm not certain on this one. That said, if it was mine, I don't think I'd sell it. Keep riding that bad boy!

A couple of my favorite spots.

Where are these?

Quoted from Clytor:

The bowl is in Waxhaw, NC and the park is in Lancaster, SC. Both are private, but the owner usually opens them to everyone on the weekends.

Used to skate back in the late 80’s and only did it for like 3-4 years before I put all of money into paintball. Still got my 2 boards, a Christian Hosoi hammerhead with Hosoi Rockets and a Mark Gonzalez Pro with some Bullets. My 14 year old daughter recently started skating on a cheap board, and last week I have her my 2 boards. She’s been enjoying the Hosoi Hammerhead the most.

Bringing back some memories now, I had a Jeff Kendall and Powell Peralta ripper.

I used to skate in the mid 70’s early 80’s. I only ride on the street these days. I just finished this set up for my son. I’m waiting to hear back from him on it. I ended with some extra green Krypto’s if anyone is interested.

The world is so dead to me right now that I paved my property and have been slowley turning it into a skatepark.

I started skating when I was 14 years old. Last time I picked up a board was at a park with my son. I was 28 then, I will be 37 next month...

My skills have turned a little rusty. I'm having a hard time catching kickflips on the regular like I used to, but I'll get them back with a little more practice.

Nailed a couple 50-50 grinds on the small ledge yesterday to the applause of my sons; they are still learning to olley. I hope my old fat ass has inspired them. I also landed a backside crooked grind on the same ledge, that felt good. Still got the backside nose slide, Ianded one on the taller box to my amazement.

Been ordering and assembling these boxes from OC Ramps. Built the kicker yesterday, still needs ramp paint. A quarter pipe and a hip are next on the list.

Wish me luck.

Haven't skated since '03. I'm 50 lbs heavier than I was back then.

Picked up a new board over the weekend. First session back tonight. Ollie came back after about ten minutes. Flip tricks are not coming back as fast. Almost killed myself on a shove it. Haha

Still can't believe I haven't skated in 17 years. Man it feels good.

Had to visit the old skate park. This place is almost unrideable.

Dropped in on the mini ramp. Got a 50/50 stall. But was unable to rock and roll back in. All that time skating in high school really sticks with you. I lived on these mini ramps back then. Feels like second nature..

Anyone embraced the future and pick up an e-board? I still love my old school cruisers and long boards but these e-boards look like a lot of fun.

Saw a guy cruising on a one wheel a few days ago. He was just lolly gagging down a walking path. Looked super chill.

I never skated as a kid. Decided to buy a board....on my 40th birthday. I rode it until...well, I still have the scars on my arms. It's hard to try and capture that sense of balance at this stage....alas....
