    Sup man. I'm in the DFW metro. I stay in Wylie about 15 minutes east of Plano. When are you down for a meetup? Whenever I'm not at gymnastics practice or working, I'm down for a good sesh. Just decided to get head on into skateboarding again so I'm rusty as **** lol Let me know, man. I usually like to hit up Allen. Pretty primo park there.

    It has been in the 90's every day here, yet it feels like 102 to 104. I skate for five minutes and feel drained.

    Out of ALL the summers. It had to be the one were I would be able to drive around to go to places were I could skate.

    I go to school in san antonio, but my dad lives in plano. (DFW metro), where I am right now. And I'm gonna be here for about 5 1/2 more weeks. Problem is, my ankle is broken. But I get the cast off in 1.5 - 2 weeks.

    But yeah, last time I skated I went home drenched in sweat. Correction: I went to the hospital drenched in sweat. It sucked. And I normally stay in San Antonio, where it's even hotter than DFW...

    ^ Jon trust me you won't be able to skate in denton. The heat will kill you and our skate park is outdoor.

    So it isn't a good choice to go there either.

    i think ive only ever been to that park once. half the ramps were broken, and you had to pay to get in. has it gotten any better? is there a street section, or is it still mostly transition and funboxes?

    i usually just skate a few spots around my house. a few nice stair sets, a nice ledge, and a decent grass gap.

    Do you know the albertsons on University? go behind it. there's loading docks with metal coping ledges, and high red curb thats nice and waxed. really nice spot. and if you go in the afternoon, the shade from the whole building covers it. its definitely a spot to check out.

    It really hasn't changed much if at all.

    I never thought about going behind the albertsons.

    McMath Middle School over by metzlers has a nice 7 stair.
