go skateboarding day was tight, me and a few homies went to chicago and skated burnham/wilson and streeeet. rolled my ankle on some stupid shit later in the day, but i'm still stoked on it.
and to that blader kid, who the fuck cares if you "made the x games what they are today." fuck the x games, all it is is a fucking way for ESPN to make bank off of skateboarding. it's ruining the skateboarding culture by trying to make it happy and friendly towards the general public, when that's just not the nature of skateboarding. and for christs sake, they're trying to take the vert competition out and replace it with a "super park" comp because it will get better ratings, resulting in (surprise surprise) more money for ESPN! i mean, i skate tranny and street, mostly street though. but ESPN doesn't have the right to just remove vert skating from the x games, vert skating was around way before the street skating we know, it's a huge ass part of skateboarding's history. if i had my way, the fucking x games wouldn't even be around, skateboarding DEFINATELY doesn't need them.
