Skateboarding

I spent my Friday evening hanging out at the skateboard park. My stepson’s band was playing there — I’m a draftee roadie/driver on occaision — with four other bands. Instead of watching the bands, I watched the skaters.

It was interesting to see how skateboarding has progressed. In my day (what a scary phrase) everyone was into aerial tricks, hand plants (if that’s the correct term) and so on. These guys were all into popping the board up on everything in site. It was less flow, but more action… almost like a couple steps back from its surfer roots. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, its just a different direction than what I expected.
