    Should be a ton of folks in this group. I was involved in both....and have the scars to prove it! Used to race BMX as a kid at a place in San Pedro called Harbor BMX Raceway.
    Never skated competitively, just did a bunch of street/bowl skating around town.

    All the kids trip when I break out my old Hammer Head Christian Hasoi. deck. Indapendants with Green 65mm Kriptonics or Blue Powell Bones. I grew up in Venice Californication.. Chipped my front toof at Marina Del Rey Skate Park. Today they have a pool at the beach in Venice. Man I would have robbed at least 20 Marina Del Rey residents for that deal back then...

    Miss my Polar Bear skate with Tracker Trucks and Z Smoothies. Man the memories! Cool beans Zacho.

    Pictures are from around '76. Sims Lopez Keyhole with trackers and green krypts and Dogtown board with Indies and green krypts. I still ride a long board sometimes and sure wish I could sport those shorts and socks again.

    Last time i rode a skateboard was when they had steel wheels
    "A liberal paradise would be a place where everybody has
    guaranteed employment, free comprehensive healthcare, free
    education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free
    utilities, and only law enforcement has guns. And believe it or
    not, such a place does, indeed, exist: It's called prison."
