Gone Skateboarding?

I love rolling in, and did it again afterwards to try and get back on the horse.

I was so pissed off as I’d driven quite a way to skate this new park and slammed in the first 10 mins. After wimpering on the side for a bit I forced myself to skate for another hour before my body seized up. This was a mistake.


Shit man, heal quick. Sounds nasty!

Sounds like what happened to me last summer, hit a tiny pebble and got pitched onto my side. Instant swellbow which immediately seized up - was genuinely about 8 months before I could fully straighten my arm again, and it still doesn’t really feel right.

Get on that ice and anti inflammatories!

Took my older setup this week (9.75 Heroin Egg Vs 8.5 std shape) and things felt a lot better.

Probably looked shocking, but I can’t see that so it’s not my problem.

In summary… I like skateboarding again.


1 bolt crew! :rofl:

seen this a lot, can someone explain how 1 bolt keeps trucks in place, or am I naive?

They’re probably old 6 hole pattern trucks but new hole patterned deck. So 2 bolts holding the trucks on but you can’t see the other bolt on each side covered by the hangar.


Doh! I see it now

I may not be a credible witness


3 bolts. :+1:


Put my big brave boy shoes on last night and went for a solo yolo at a park near me that’s recently been rebuilt.

Its next to Southwold Pier and had been randomly rained on just before I got there but I still managed to get a little skate in.

Not a bad park but I’d still be happier with a quiet kerb somewhere.
