Ok, so living in the Columbia River Gorge town of Hood River, Oregon isn’t exactly the best weather I’ve experienced so far for skateboarding. So yesterday I had a nice break from my office duties and decided to go skate the park.
There wasn’t much to skate at our DH park, with all the debris of Pine Needles/Rocks/Mud and general wetness- it was barely skateable at all. But then I realized there are worse kids in smaller towns with no place to skate. Enter little Kirk from The Dalles Oregon
He basically wouldn’t let me skate alone. I was trying to see if I could shoot a self action timed shot using my timer, no one involved type photo of myself skating. Hard to do period. He apparently had camera skills, because he offers to take the shot for me. I sit him down and give him an express “How To” and I skate off hoping for the best. Here’s attempt #1:
And he precedes to nail it on the very next try, he even stood up like the veteran Kilwag and said calmly “I got it.”
Well, I hope you all have a Rebel New Year and skate all the places you encounter. Make up a few good skate resolutions, like, “I’m gonna learn Lien to Tails like SUPER Grover” or land a 360 flip before I’m 40.
