Actually going skateboarding thread

I think for it to be mildly fun you have to get a fast one.

Even though it’s a lake, and even though I’m 42 and not 8, Jaws did a good enough job on me as a kid to make me permanently think a shark is coming for me when I lie on water.

Hmmm. Sort of potential fun to be had for a bit of a dump.

Bristol area people: does anyone know of any metal/wooden minis in North West Bristol? I can only find concrete parks.

The thing I’m taking this picture on is for bmxers I think. Feels like a 6 foot vert ramp.

Is that Thornbury?

There’s a mini ramp in Portishead that looks vaguely ok. Still North of Bristol…might be worth the drive.

Or just go and skate one of the concrete parks? There’s loads.

Yeah it is. It’s got the same manny pad thing that Dinas has so I basically just skated that.

Yeah that ramp looks OK. Might try and get there before dark tonight.

I’m just not ready to slam on concrete yet!

Me and my girlfriend sometimes rent a pedalo for an hour. We cruise around and drink beers listening to cheesy old rock or the Love Boat theme or some stupid shit and it’s always good fun.
We usually “sail” around the Ile de Peilz because rumor has it that Switzerland gave it to Elisabeth II but she said she didn’t want it when she found out she’d have to pay taxes for it. I don’t care about that but it’s enough for me to pretend I sail from Switzerland to the UK when I’m actually just being an idiot drinking Brewdog cans on the lake by my house.
