    monthly skate post.. :wink1:

    Since I haven't skated in like.... forever.....

    And yup, I've done the same and can sympathize... Thats a big, burly pool..

    And here's a killer recent one of him just destroying the pool at the Encinitas YMCA.. Just toying with it, in total control... Guys in his mid 40's.... :bow: :D :bow:

    Btw, if anyone knows what this tune is, speak up please, I'm diggin it...... Johnny Cash?

    Nice... brings back old memories. I used to skate myself, didn't have many pools where I was at we just rode ramp. Damn was that fun though. If I tried it now I'd prolly break my neck. Haven't stepped on a board in 15 years.:(


    Sounds like the man in black to me too singin that tune

    Cool... :D

    Yeah, don't get me wrong, I've skated waaaaaaay more ramps than pools and parks.... Back when I was sponsored in the 70's I got to skate some great parks and quite a few pools... But even then we where heavily ramp orientated, I used to bike 20 miles every saturday to skate this one 1/2 pipe as a teen....

    But thru the dead years in the 80's, it was strictly 1/2 pipes.. Think I went about 15 yrs without skating a pool... Gotten to skate a couple in recent years... And I skate FDR in Philly, which well, if not careful can lead to results like that first clip.. :doah: Now if I lived in Cali or Oregon, I'd be skating one of the million parks they have going these days.. That kidney at the Y in that clip is perfect...

    For any who dig watching this stuff, here's a recent mini ramp part that is just crazy... Some really insane skating going on with some of the craziest props you could imagine... Really long, pro part, worth the watch... Tricks that even catch me going, "wait, wtf did he just do?" :bow: :haha: Even has a vintage J. Priest track running...

    One more to post of a guy that has to be an alien, Bob Burnquist.. This is his part from one of the Firm video's..

    The majority of this takes place on his backyard ramp... I can't begin to tell you how hard most of this is, skates equally well going backwards as forward..

    The stuff he's doing in the over-vert cradle is just nuts, but made to look easy... And it's well worth watching till the end cuz the full-loop stuff he does has never been done before... The aired out full-loop is crazy, but when you realize he's skating backwards, well..

    The last clip of him pumping a full loop at Mt Baldy is just insane, indescribably impossible... Broke his wrist on that one...
