Welcome to 'Skate Sessions'

Nathaniel SnowCorrespondent IMarch 25, 2010

 

It just hit me one day, that urge somewhere deep in my brain that I hadn’t felt in a long time. I really wanted no I needed, to skate.

There was a time in my teens, when I spent whole days out ‘rolling’ with my friends. We were a solid crew of 6-8 kids, most of them younger and some of them older than me. We met at the park almost everyday.

We pushed each other to be better skaters. Seeing one of the guys land a new trick made me want to try it too. We brought each other progression, we brought each other support.

But that was then, and this is now.

Now, I find myself skating alone, or worse surrounded by bikes, boards and an unfathomable swarm of scooters. Aggressive skating was even taken out of the X-Games back in 2005. But that old urge stays with me, and it’s an itch that must be scratched.

So join me at Skate Sessions , and help me revive this dying art; or just watch me ride out skating’s final days.
