    Default Hey Nerds. How've you been?

    This site popped into mind so I thought I'd come say hi. How are those who remember me? I got a grownup job and got busy and stopped skating for the most part. I'm probably a better skater than ever. 2015 will be my return to what I once loved.

    I have that too actually heh; sometimes I would have to stop skating for weeks because of school and stuff
    I come back and I'm pretty rusty, but once some of that rust wears off I progress super quick, feels great

    Glad to see you again man!

    I'm the same way, always better at skating when I come back from a hiatus. It oddly helps out a lot.

    We got hacked at some point last year and the site was down for a month. The forum was already dying but that hack really put a nail in the coffin.

    I start losing shit immediately if I don't skate regularly. Which sucks, because I can only skate on average once a week. So i kind of just stay exactly where I am and don't progress very far.

    This past summer i didn't skate for two months and literally could barely 50-50 when i got back. I just have really bad muscle memory, i guess. I become unable to play things on guitar if I don't do it every other day too.

    But, it's good to see your name on here again, beard.

    Haha yea the winter finally caught up with us in the North these last few weeks. We had it pretty easy until then. I know the guys that kick it back in gear in there mid-30s. My hiatus just isn't quite as long as theirs. I'm ditching the old delaminating board and getting some local shop board soon. Cheap for me, price-point for them.

    Thanks Mike! It's cool seeing familiar names after a few years gone.

    Hey LEC, looking around the site I came to the same conclusion, then saw Pathtek or someone post about what KK is saying \/

    Yea, I'm in a similar state with my guitar playing. The strings have acquired some dust and I quickly realized I can't remember how to play all the songs that used to come so easily to me. Back to Ultimate-Guitar! Thanks SK

    Yeah kk360 pretty much sum'd it up...once we got that first big hack job that shut it down and damn near corrupted everything took too long to rebuild. Everyone disappeared.

    Good to see some familiar faces still alive and well. Glad you all think to stop by. I think it will always be a meeting ground of just nostalgic stuff.

    It has been way too cold to skate, but I have gone to the indoor park to hang out. Can't say I skate too much on my own so unless I find a buddy to ride and converse with...I'm literally "that guy" talking to just about anyone at the park.

    Good to see The Beard! I picked up the board the other day after a long time off it and it got me stoked to skate but then it snowed. Probably gonna hit the park tomorrow when it warms up. We really need to get this site more active haha
    Every me and every Hsu.

    Hey STL! I'm definitely looking forward to that afternoon in March where it gets to 60 degrees and the roads are mostly dry so I can take my short "longboard" out. Its a 10.5" cruiser deck on 70mm wheels but regular deck length. Rolls over everything!

    I love little cruisers. I've made two different street boards with fat decks and trucks with big, soft wheels but my friend got them both stolen. I definitely need to set up another.

    set up another friend? I agree. How the hell does he get 2 boards stolen that aren't even his? Or are we saying... "Stolen..."?

    One got taken out of his uncle's house when he left it there and one he left in someone's car and it disappeared. I've known him literally my whole life and I doubt he would take them. He just doesn't keep it glued to his hip. And he wonders why I don't let him ride my bike LOL. I need to get a hold of some big ole trucks, a big deck and some big gummy wheels.
