yesterday we spent a couple of hours hanging out with skaters in a toronto park because loch just got a new deck, and he is practicing some really basic moves. one spent the whole time trying to land a basic flippy trick going down some steps. (he never landed it) i can't even stand on a board.
i have always been fascinated by this xtreme sport. it seems so ridiculously cool. just a board and 4 wheels and the street. and a seriously casual attitude.
i loved dogtown and z boys. (these pix are from the film) these guys were the 70's original thing. and recently loch got a million tech decks (miniature board toys) that had this video of two brilliant skateboarders doing tricks. love.
