When did you start to skate and why? What tricked you into this?
I used to ride my bmx back then. Then one night I saw some of my friends on skateboards trying to take on a flyout, and they would slam every time. I borrowed one of the boards and hit the flyout and landed the first time. That was that, I was hooked!!
Do you think you made the right choice (instead of playing football FX?)? Hell yes (there is no jock hiding inside me)
Please comment your feelings, memories (if you are that old) & know how about Skateboarding in the
80s Neon clothing, Hill bombing and fun times
90s Everybody hating skaters, Super baggy pants. Low cut shoes (we cut them ourselves ) Dying my hair blond with Hydrogen peroxide. Party party party!!
2000+ Skateboarding booming again, big events, people starting to respect skaters. Startet working at Copenhagenskatepark and seeing skateboarding through a different mindset. PARTY!!!
2010+ Kids ripping, taking every style from the 80´s until now and mixing it up (SO rad). BIG money and trying to deal with the fact that I´m getting older. And off cause party.
Do you feel skateboarding is in a good way?
Yeah absolutely. Even though big companies are taking over. It seems like skateboarding is gonna be here FOREVER!!
