You know the drill, black tee's, tats, piercings, mosh pits, baggy shorts....kinda like the harley crowd but different :) Typically more violent, thrill seeking and whacky....oh my god, what have I said! Luckily they don't know where I live :)
I keep a special bucket of gravel that I throw on the driveway to protect me from skateboard gangs.
I used to nail metal skates to the bottom of a board when I was a kid. There was no such thing as a store bought board.
Yeah baby...I was there at the beginning.
There are some that call me the Father of Skateboarding and some just call me Tim.
