THIS NY Times article is what we're about: Skateboarding Past a Midlife Crisis


Yet the author missed an opportunity to talk about street skaters and former freestylers - we're out here, too! Backside airs are one thing, but how about us geezers popping kickflilps, railflips, and casper flips? The geezers with the bruised shins? That would be me.

  1. I read this earlier today, skateboarding doesn't (or at least shouldn't) die within a person, so I'm glad to see all kinds of people skating, those young and those getting old

    1. No doubt. Danforth thrashed parks and blew kids' minds all across the nation on the 1031 skate tour of 2010. Mongo pusher, too!
