i'm in fayetteville, and shorty's_kid (trevor) is in winston/salem area. can't say i'm much of a carver, or even a skater anymore for that matter. welcome to the cafe.

I'm in King if you know where that is. It's about 15 minutes north of Winston Salem.

Thanks for hitting me back guys. I grew up just west of Wilmington, NC so I've been in NC all my life. I do know King- off Hwy 52? Do you stick to tricks or maybe toss in some longboard sessions?

I guess it is all in what you make it. There is a park a few miles west that has some good spots to carve hills but mostly I stay around my neighborhood. For me the streets look like slopes and the hills like waves. What boards do you ride?

Yep. Exit 123. I usually stick to tricks but I've ridden longboards before and they're super fun.

Mega Plaza in fayetteville is back open. GREAT flow. You might enjoy some longboarding there. Not sure what happened to our mini pipe, though.

Last time I was in wilmington I didn't see much worth skating.

Then again, I was only 12 last time I was there, and it's 4 1/2 hours from me. haha.

So are there any locals that know how to pump a longboard? LDP on pavedwave looks like something I need to learn. I visit my parents near Wilmington and it is nothing but flat land.

I always thought pumping a longboard was kinda of like, you get a foot in the most flexible part, bend your knees, get the board real low, and push off the ground in a forward motion.
Could be wrong, though.
