We grew up in the Golden Age of Skateboarding; the Bones Brigade/Animal Chin Era. A time when skate shops had demos and you could see the legends of skateboarding at your local park or shop. We were children of the 70's and 80's and skateboarding was our passion. No curb, mini ramp, or launch ramp was safe. We would stay out until the street lights came on skating, talking skating, and loving everything about skateboarding and the culture.
Then we grew up and life/school/work/family/responsibility took a front seat. Skateboarding was replaced by school and jobs and bills and diapers and soon became another thing we "used to do as a kid". We are all in our 30's, 40's, 50's, and 60's and our kids are reaching the age where skateboarding is possible.
We always talked about "getting back out there" but never could find (or justify to our wives) the time. Our kids provided the perfect opportunity to join them and re-learn with them. Sure, our kids are into it but not nearly to the level we are. Our newly rekindled passion to learn to skate and relive our love for the culture drives us. We meet every weekend and when we can during the week and make skate park pilgrimages and try not to get too hurt for the next work day.
This page was created to grow our community and encourage others to have fun spreading the stoke for skateboarding culture. This is a place for everyone who has a love for skateboarding and realizes we are never too old to get back out there and have a blast. Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.
