    skateboarding has been and will always be my one love(along with art).
    but in the past few years Ive slowed down a shit load(working full time, college(imma dropout), ect.) now I just go skate whenever the weather is nice enough..
    but I have a prodigy my little brother. he started back when I was in my prime and now he has surpassed me by a shitload and Im positive that in a few years hell be sponsered by atleast a local company, because of this everytime I skate with him I try and push him farther then he thinks hes capable of and he succeeds.
    here is a little vid of my bro ollieing this 10 stair from last year(around may)
    and now hes already backside fliped it, and done/found shit Ive never thought of.

    hold on the link didnt work Im fixing it be patient

    i used to skateboard everyday like 6 or 7 years ago but just stopped one day. my brother got into it and gave me his old setup. i feel like an old man trying to skate with 10 year old prodigys.

    Well I was 'teaching' myself, but obviously I was a poor instructor.

    I used to skate like all the time but all the sudden less then a month ago the skate just went out of me. I'm not motivated to skate anymore and I get bored so fast. This happen to anyone else? I will probably just take a break from skating for a month or two then get back to it...

    been skating since i was 12 (im 16 now)
    its like second nature to me
    and the one thing i would choose over graffiti

    my best trick is a nollie 360 flip
    biggest set is 11
    if there wasnt skating or graffiti in the world

    word, skating is the only thing i'm interested in more than graff. i actually did an eleven on christmas, i'm thinking about going back and 180'ing it. i've 180'ed a big nine, so the smallish 11 shouldn't be too bad. also, i've been skating wider boards more recently because they take like 5x longer to break.

    EDIT: as far as injuries go, i've been pretty lucky. i've sprained my left ankle suuuuper badly, and my right one sort of badly a few times. also, i've broken both wrists. but other than that, it's just mostly heel/palm bruises and some gnarly gashes.
