    Default My Birthday Present For Myself:

    $T2eC16JHJHcFFjw98gdUBSOPk7yw4w~~60_35.JPG

    My birthday is next weekend and I saw this on eBay. It was gone before I could decide on whether I should get it or not (no bank account, credit card or paypal). I saw it again on Decomposed Skates site and had one of my clients check on availability. The first response was they were fresh out but getting more next week. My client sent another e-mail saying it was a birthday present and got a reply that they had one kicking around.

    Thank you. I can tell my girlfriend is mildly annoyed since I'm still recovering from surgery after a skating accident and would just assume I never set foot on a board again. This one will get hung up when I have an office.

    I've been looking at that deck for my next deck, but most places are out of stock. It's the only freestyle shape that won't cost an arm and a leg for shipping.

    Yeah I got a good deal on it especially since it's autographed. Essentially that means I'm not skating it.

    Once I'm healed up and ready to start skating again I've decided to get a Powell Kilian 2 7.75" deck and file 1/4" off the nose and tail to square it a little.

    awesome
    Above the lakes, above the vales,
    The mountains and the woods, the clouds, the seas,
    Beyond the sun, beyond the ether,
    Beyond the confines of the starry spheres,
    My soul, you move with ease

    Yeah especially since it's temporarily going into storage then on my wall when I have space. She just seems miffed that I even want to skate, get on skating sites, watch skate vids etc. since fucking myself up so bad. I think I fall on the Biker end of the Hippie spectrum where the injury doesn't scare me and the love of it takes over. She looked at me annoyed when I was looking at it online and watching skate videos and asked me why. I replied that even though I can't play bass right now I can still enjoy music and watch bass videos. I think she will come to accept this eventually.

    man, I ordered the Mike Vallely street axe. 2 of them...on thursday. One to skate one for decor. Set up my black flag deck and skated it only for an hour before blowing my knee out on saturday. Definitely no skating this year, and maybe not until springtime...now I will have a brand new deck set up waiting for me, the powell peralta ripper AND a street axe to be skated. Not to mention the limited edition pool deck I bought earlier on with no intention to skate.
    My wife is OK with buying the boards. she has a problem with all the space they hold up and she doesn't like the art on them so I hope if we're moving next year I can have a "man-cave" for all my records and boards.

    So, according to your avatar info you'll be 23 on the 23rd right? Something cool about the same date same year birthday, and cooler the higher the date is.
