Dezb… I’m on my phone otherwise id go on and on. But i agree so much.
Love that t. Epic 1st time around. May have to buy one.
Talking of 80s style… 11yr old daughter has gone to an 80s disco tonight. All the school cool kids going and all that. So i rummaged in the attic and gave her a choice.. Embarrassing dad takes her wearing either quiksilver tom carol nuthuggers or quiksilver warpaint baggies. Both authentic 80s as i was there.

My dad asked me if I could dig out an old skateboard form my 7 year old cousin, so I gave him my 1989 Powell peralta tony hawk signature board with Indy trucks and t-bone wheels, Santa cruz cell block risers and all, am I bad for now regretting this? I hope he doesn’t trash it 🙁 mind you at 33 I think I’d look a bit of turd skating! Or would I? 🙂Posted 7 years ago

no, not at all. get it back, buy him a new argos cheapie.
i was so lucky that my mum never threw out my skate stuff, especially when i saw this http://skateandannoy.com/2008/04/chris-strople-deck-is-king-of-ebay/ . mine now safely under lock and key.Posted 7 years agospeaker2animalsSubscriber
Hmmmm – mark 2 Green Kryps! Though wish I could get some mark 1 blues. Really loved my white Yo Yo’s, probably the best wheels I owned. Saw a Dog Town skate in a local shop window, more of a cruiser but took me back. My last deck was a Wesley Humpston 10″. Bit too big really, but like handlebars now in 77/78 the wider your deck, the better. Mate had a 9″ John Sablowski Benji Board which was a great looker, but a bit heavy due to the construction that made it look so ace.Posted 7 years agoTooTallMember
Its not very cool wearing supposedly cool 80s clothes if you dont have experience of what it was all about in the first place,though!
You are evidently in the ‘lived through it’ category. If you are young enough, anything can be cool. As you age, you learn or the phrase ‘no dad’ will for ever be on the lips of your children.Posted 7 years ago
