They sure did but I personally don't find anything punk with skateboarding.
But yeah it is weird! You used to see people skating everywhere just a few years ago, even in the winter!

Also, bam is indeed pretty badass.

When I was a tiny turd, I used to do extreme rollerblading......back when rollerblading was all the rage.

Remember when it was cool to trick your scooter? :lol:
I love skateboarding, though I can't even ollie. xD

I thought it originated from the 50's and 70's surfing cultures!
And that is a top class second base I tell you :)

Bam sucks. He is a douche bag (met him.) That dumb asshole can't even skate! Have you ever seen his videos? You watch him fall like 8 times & then he nails one & it's over :P

It's all about Rodney Mullen. He INVENTED skateboarding!

Without him there would be no tricks.


I used to learn a lot of his tricks back in the day

I can still primo & 180 & ollie & shove it & pop shove it & kick flip & impossible & I pogo'd once :P Caspers too.

But I don't skate so much anymore

I can't do any tricks (okay, I only started last year) but I love just cruising! I'm buying my friend's old mini-longboard off when the snow melts.
