Skate Boarders Are A Lot Like 'Wingers.

Yesterday, for my bicycle ride, I cruised over to a local BMX park. Expecting to see bicycles defying gravity, I took a camera.

To my surprise, there were no bicycles. Instead the place was infested with skateboarders. What I found funny was; they weren't kids. Apparently, the skate punks of yore have grown up but the younger "gen X ers" haven't developed a fascination for the sport.

Much like new gens of motorcyclists don't seem to be gravitating to GoldWings.

The Pics: #1-These guys still like to defy gravity.
#2-They're no longer lean & mean. Note the girth of the guy standing.
#3-All is well...wait...where's my board?

No one want's to comment on the guys board going up and over the wall?

Maybe I'll grow up and learn to do that.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Nice pictures.
Do you think that two artificial knees and 120 kg disqualify for this sport ?

The winner is the man with most tools !

Not for me. I thought snowboarding over moguls looked like fun a few yeard ago. BOY was i wrong! Respect to those that can do this.

Only a biker knows why a dog puts his head out of a window of a moving vehicle.

The real skaters are probably bikers too id imagine. You can only land on your wrists and eat dirt so many times before you wise up XD
