Quoted from Quicksilver1:

You aren't wrong. The deck collecting "hobby" has gone through the roof. It's mind boggling to me seeing common reissue decks are selling for $300/400 these days, and some OG decks are selling for.......................................................................................wait for it.

Holy shit!

Yes NoS decks from the 80s have skyrocketed, that particular Grosso deck at 16k is a true 80s deck and Jeff Grosso unfortunately passed away suddenly last year.

#403 3 months ago

I sold this collection last year for 1k this year its probably worth 3x that or more . The cabi , hawk, mountain and Guerrero decks in those colors and shape are almost unobtainable these days , yes you can find them but , $$$$

I have a few of those.
All the stuff hanging is signed.
The McGill, Guerrero and Mountain are personalized.
I would probably trade you the two in shadow boxes if you ever get your ass us here to come visit.

Yeah, the last few months have been a whirl wind since European travel opened back up.
Been there and back three times since June.
Anyhow, I'm back in town for a few weeks now.

Quoted from Prospekteur:

Im 42 years and skatet 5 years ago the last time. Was a fulltime skater till I was 23 years old. Was such a great time. I definitely have to go skating again! Its such a shame.....that I didnt skate the last years.
Video of me last time skating........five years ago

Nice tre and heel flip but the inside heel was something extra!! I used to have them fakie but it feels much easier popping them going fakie, I cant even remember ever landing a regular inside heel in a bank. Well done, nice pop and style.

Accidentally posted this up in another thread...

Brother wanted to test his new camera/gimble setup. It worked pretty good for a little bit then started acting all wonky later on in the session

I got a crooks on the curb second try. He was working on kickflips and 50-50's mostly.

It started raining and inside I asked if he wanted to play some pinball and he says "Nah, Im cool just chillin." I'm like huh? Pinball is chilling

I hope you got a good response. You probably got some guy interested in skating. I can't for the life of me lock into a slappy crook at my curb spot.

Any tips for commiting to a crook? It feels like I stick on every try.

Best tip is to try for a nose slide but with your front foot over the boards screws, oppossed to the nose of your board. Hope it helps. Next step is figuring out how to get out of it

#414 3 months ago

I locked into a few of these nose slides just to get comfortable. I will keep at it.

Speaking of throwing away decks. I highly recommend getting this book "Disposable" if you can't afford to collect them. I am always getting it out to reference or have on the coffee table. I can't believe how much it too has shot up in price!

I'm on the couch next to my daughter who's using a big book as a support to do her drawing.

I've got a cool story about this book.
I have a colleague from England who's a skater - we started going to local miniramps on lunch breaks and such. At some point he told me a story about how he and some friend, many years back, went into some local distributor in England where they had a bunch of old mint Powell-Peralta boards such as Tony Hawk and stuff like that.
The owner let them grab whatever they could carry out on the cheap. My coworker's friend got 5 mint Tony Hawk's that he sold at some point to pay for tuition or something.
So when I read the book, there's a very similar story and I tell him "hey that really sounds like the story you told me". And sure enough, it is the same story and it's been written by his friend. He's even referenced in it, although not by name.

Its October, time to switch over to long sleeve. Pac Sun exclusively sold these a few months ago, not sure if they still do? Nod to Jeff Kendall.

Haven't done much skating lately due to the weather out here, but I did get to do some day dreaming while assembling these completes today.

Ten of them this year are going to the holiday toy drive. Tried to fit in a few smaller boards for the youngins. Got sizes ranging from 7.0 to 8.5, two boards for each size. Hoping they find some good homes and inspire the next pros.

So, the subway tile behind the bar at Jackbar in Brooklyn is made out of cut pieces of busted skateboard decks.

Gave me time to assemble my Christmas complete. My fiance's family think I'm dumb for skating at 37. But it didn't stop them from getting me gift certificates to a local skate shop in St. Louis . (Where they hail from).

Anti Hero 8.63 Beres deck
Ace 55 trucks
Spitfire 99d 56mm
Bones Big Balls bearings

Researching skateparks in driving distance, with bowls. Got a few in mind. Haha

I love my future in-laws!

I remember, when I was a kid, thinking it would amazing if I could still be skating when I turn thirty. Ha. I started at nine and here I am at 45. Admittedly, I haven't skated a lot over the past two years. They just finished a new concrete park near me. Time to get back on it!
