    I'm really confused. Is this supposed to be like an allegory of how the Obama administration has skated by and avoided any serious legal obstacles as it has pushed its socialist agenda and trampled the constitution at every turn?

    Is the reference to boards, decks, trucks and pipes supposed to be an illustration of the employment of illegal immigrants by the home improvement industry at the expense of American workers?

    And surely the nostalgia for the 1980's must be a call for the return of a Reagan era trickle down economic model.

      Yes
      Up until three years ago
      I've worked at local skateparks and even had a short stint at zumiez where I was fired for verbally assaulting the district manager and calling him a poser

      I can hop on a board right now and rock it

        I preferred blank decks because I landed everything tail heavy so I was good to break a board every weekend. Had to keep costs down

        I've pulled off some amazing shit though

          Blanks are the way to go. fuck payin 150 cause there is an element logo on the same fuckin wood. I used to buy white blanks for 19.99 and just move my trucks from board to board

            I haven't been near a skateboard since the 70's.

            Back then, they were really thin and cheesy.

                No offense Greg but it clearly states that you were near a skateboard on august 27th 2005. You don't have to lie right to my face. I still love you

                      I had me a "Goofy Foot" skateboard.
                      It was a significant upgrade over those roller skates that clamped on the bottom of one's shoes and would come loose at the worst moment......

                        I used to skate in the mid-late 80s. Nothing crazy. Just street skating, steps, shit like that. There was a pretty cool skate shop on South St. we would hang out at, skate around in the street and fuck around with the Hari-Krishnas during the summer.

                        I dont remember all the brands and shit like that. All I know is I had a Jeff Kendall deck, rode goofy footed, and kept my trucks insanely loose. I liked to coast back and forth almost like I was surfing. And like spoon, I loved customizing the grip tape on the top of the deck.

                          The classic Goofy Foot skateboard was even thinner and didn't have the spoiler-looking thing in the back. It had a couple red footprints on it. I think they cost, like, $5 circa 1967.
                          I think they were made out of birch. Some had racing stripes down the middle...
