    It all began for me 4 years ago. I was a pathetic alcoholic and just had began the long road to recovery. About a 9 months in to not drinking I started to think a hobby might be in order to fill all this free time I have now. So I always had a interest in Flatland BMX and went a got a cheap bike shop GT, after a lot of falls and six months had passed I got myself a hand built KHE from Germany and thought this is it I have found my sport. It was awesome, I was getting pretty good in my eyes. But as I progressed, the tricks were getting harder and the falls were getting harder to get away from, and at 39 it was taking to long to heal and get back on the bike. But alas Colorado helped me out, for it was very dry winter that year, so a lot of tennis and basketball courts were open all the time. But one week the skies opened and dumped four days straight of snow and a week a of bitter weather. I was like dam can’t ride. So me and my neighbor built this funky little 1/4 pipe in my garage two weeks later I pretty much hung up my bike. From this point on that’s what I do is sk8 ( on my 5th deck now). Skating has been the best thing I ever attempted. The difficulty of the learning curve is unbelievable and I love that. This sport is so hard that when you stick that trick you’ve been working on for two months well you know the feeling it does not get any better. So now I skate to live, I love it. “Skating the cure for the common day”

    P.S would love to session with you guys sometime

    I started skating in 4th or 5th because my older brother
    and his friends did. They all quit but I was hooked for life. I’m
    23 now and am literally blown away everytime I skate with how much
    fun you can have on a piece of wood and some wheels. Not to mention
    it’s one of the most creative sport/hobby/addictions out there.
    There is no limit to what you can do. There are too many reasons
    why I still skate. I can’t tell you how many friends I’ve made, and
    kept primarily because of skateboarding. Skateboarders are some of
    the coolest/best people out there. Long live skateboarding. By the
    way, that park you guys have going there is on point! That is
    exactly the kind of setup I want someday. Good work guys, and lemme
    know if this place is open to the public or if its a private sort
    of deal.

    I started skating in the 7th grade, never got any good, and quit about 9 years ago because I kept breaking my feet. Flash forward to Skate America, where I was the resident bike girl. Wanting to expand my horizons, I let the guys talk me into giving skating another go, and now I can’t stop. Hanging out with a crew of people who love the fraternizing and familial energy makes it a really great environment to learn in. Every time I get on my board now, I feel like there is no way I COULDN’T improve. I love the feeling of landing a new trick, hundreds of which I have yet to learn. I love having a supportive crew of boys who strive to make us ladies a little better each day with none of the BS. My skateboard makes me happy, and I can’t wait to flip, spin, and land it like it deserves.

    I still skate ’cause it’s a foundation, something that’s always there to build on even if the rest falls to the ground. For the last ten years or so, I’ve skated mostly by myself because most skaters I knew quit and moved on to other things. I’ve tried other things and I always find myself back on the skateboard at a new skatepark trying new things. All of the sudden thousands of cats from Michigan and the Midwest show up into town and befriend me. Now I’m going on trips, skating new spots, and genuinely having a lot of fun with a bunch of all-around good doods. All this is keeping the spirit alive and making me realize beers and homies for life…

    I still skate because I am too old to get sick at rollerblading. That, and also the feeling of timelessness when skating. Hanging out with good friends, inspiration to travel, music from skate vids, faster than walking, new skateparks everywhere, hill bombing, 360 flips, the clubhouse, stay healthy, and fun. I usually laugh a lot when I skate with the homies. It is real in a world that is so digital and disconnected from human contact. Skateboarding has saved all of us from being what we were always told we should be. Love to all the skateboarders with heart, which is a vast percentage.

    I don’t skate..but I have watched skateboarders..I have watched them jump over bonfires and off rooftops to other rooftops….and dislocate elbows….and sprain ankles….and bruise parts unnamed…..and every time any of these things have happened, I watch in amazement at what happens the next day and the next day after that and ….pretty soon…they are all still skating..I don’t skate, but it is something special to those who do.

    I still Skate because my love and passion for it is still as strong today as It was 23 years ago… We all have stories of where skateboarding has taken us… The places… the people… the sessions… They shaped us… Made us who we are… My life became a part of something bigger when I picked up that Orange Nash Executioner 23 years ago… We truly are part of something greater than us…

    i might still do some thrashing if i didn’t have a cement bucket for an ankle. i skated primarily to be better than my friends and to impress girls. just kidding. the release i found from skateboarding was like nothing else i’ve found in life; it was one of the only times when i wasn’t stressing or thinking about something worthless. i try to find other forms of that release, but there is still nothing like skateboarding. you learn a lot about yourself skating, and when i look back and think about some of the things i got myself to do, it makes me feel like a total pussy now. haha. more so, it’s empowering to know what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it. one love.

    I still skate and will continue skating because it is a part of who I am. I grew up the only skater in my high school, and it kinda started as something to show my individuality. As I met other skaters , I realized I am part of a larger group of individuals. Skating has always been fun and also a challenge. It has been both a pain and a pleasure, but it is part of who I am today and has offered me a lot through the years. I’ve met most of my friends through skateboarding, I’ve traveled to new cities for skateboarding and because of that, these big cities have become a playground and also allowed me to meet new people while I’m there. So I will continue to skate because it is who I am , a skateboarder and I will be as long as I can. Shred 4 life, fins up!

    Skateboarding is an ever growing, amorphous blob that never stops changing, but will always stay true. It is a sort of culture that has had so much development, and will continue to develop, but never lost its meaning and feeling of freedom.
    To be able to escape all the bullshit and focus on something that really does make you happy, no matter how mad it makes you; it is something to look forward to, and something I am glad to say that I am a part of.

    That’s what’s up and it feels good.

    i STILL skate primarily to stay young… to feel like a kid everyday… to overcome the lies that people tell you that “you are too old”… i skate to progress… once i got skateboarding back in my life, i was okay with getting tricks back… now i need new ones… and when i get one, it’s like i was 14 again… craving a cigarette after a burly gap or set of stairs was conquered… i skate to meet new people… i have the sickest friends that i met 100% through skateboarding… we are all entirely different but have one thing in common… it continues to pull us closer and closer together… it is continuously amazing… i skate for my health… mentally, physically, and spiritually… skateboarding cures my daily mental and physical health but it has forever cured my spiritual health… it’s helped me realize that reality is not so real… it is what you make it to be… i escape it with skateboarding… being ignorant… being a kid… having fun… worry-free… lastly, i STILL skate to express myself… to skate a spot the way i see it… to fall and erase the rage i may feel… to get up and do it again… and again… and again… i hope to meet you and skate… peace.
