Yep, I'm 33 and still skating…although obviously not at the moment as it's dark and theres 2 inches of snow on the floor.

I have a skateboard if anybody wants to buy it!!! It's only been used twice.

I bought it because Lupe Fiasco made me want to skateboard Laughing out loud Oops

I remember buying a Santa Cruz Natas with gullwing trucks, bullet wheels and flypaper grip tape from Manchester about 18 years ago. That phase has passed now.

I don't skate anymore, wish I'd never give up though.
By coincidence I watched this for the first time this afternoon and really enjoyed it. Apart from the (mostly) unfunny in between skating parts it's really good, Todd Jordan is in Manchester at one point too:

Nike SB Nothing But the Truth

Fastforward the first 6 minutes of it cos it's just the DVD menu.

it's a sick part, love 'yeah right' was watching again the other day actually. if you liked the filming in it you gotta check out lakai 'fully flared'. mike mo has an amazing part. flip 'extremely sorry' is coming out soonish iirc which should be dope. they got load of random ripper kids on their team.

I'm currently skating a Supreme Box Logo deck, I realise to some of you this may be commiting a fashion crime, but to me it just means that I'm skating a deck that is too narrow for my giant clown feet.

Yeah serious e-crime, I would have stuck it on a shirt and wore it instead. What a waste.

I love the Rodney Mullen stuff… think its called the casper and casper grind (when the board is upside down with the nose held up with your front foot) which always amazes me

Rodney is amazing, while I respect Daewon's technical skills Rodney tops out ahead for just pure style and flow to his skating.
