When I was a kid, skaters were kinda outsiders. Now it's the cool thing...

My younger brother turned 44 this year. He was an early skate boarder with a $200+ rig back when that was real money. Dad built him a decent ramp that went up to the top of the garage doors. He used to do 180s off that.

We're talking '70s. In KCMO.

One of the guys in our group used to be a pro skater in the early 80's.

His office is littered with empty boxes of decks he buys on ebay. He's got some really nice ones.

He still sneaks off at lunch several times a month and skates.

here is shredding today, he's like 43.

We used to "catamran". Sit on your board, put your feet on your friend's board, he'd do the same.

Once you took up speed, invariably one of you would either lean out or lean in, resulting in a breakup of the system, resulting in both of you spinning like a roulette wheel across the pavement.

The one I remember the most was my Free-Former.

http://www.gasolinealleyantiques.com/sports/images/skateboard/blue-freeformer4.JPG

They were pretty much a broken bone looking for a place to happen, narrow, unstable and the kicktails at both the front and rear gave a kid all kinds of bad ideas for stunts.

My brother and I had Makaha "Cheddar Cheese" skateboards that our mom got us at the JC Penney outlet store.

It was an orange plastic board and neon green (fake snakes) wheels. I think it had tracker trucks though.

My brother for his 13th birthday got a Val Surf "pool/park/pipe" Val-wide board with tracker trucks and Kryptonics wheels. That board was like the droooooooooool board.

my favorite deck that I had, and also the last deck that I had was the original Mike Vallely Barnyard by World Industries. it's sitting next to me in my office now.

come to find out, that deck, in mint condition, now sells for upwards of $3000 on ebay.

When I was in 4th-5th grade, I had a friend who loved skateboarding. I loved part of it - the trucks. I never had the money, and my parents wouldn't spend the money on a board, but I would read his CCC magazines and put together a great board. But it was the trucks that interested me the most. Titan trucks, they were always my number one.

I've been on a skateboard probably less than 5 whole minutes in my life, btw.

alright i was always to big and blessed with matchstick ankles. when my dad moved to spfld he bought a house across the street from the dude that started the skatepark that was off st. louis behind dillons, used to be a bar called The Hanger.
anyway this dude was some sort of born again x-junkie who was gonna save the kids with skate ramps and halfpipes.
shittons of locals would come and skate every friggin day it was nice, junkiepreacher was the only game in town.
this was my 1st introduction into lots of things hardcore being one of em and needless to say i never looked back.
the boards i posted are ones i remember, and i remember this guy cause he murdered someone

whatever, it was a good time. there was another board that came out around 87-89ish that didnt have rounded edges kinda had points where the rounded part should have been. odd but cool. any ideas?

I started skating the in the late 80's and I went through about half of those decks in that picture including the Gator, the Tony Hawk and the Bucky Lasek in there. My personal favorite was this Mark Gonzales board. I went through six or seven of those before I couldn't find them anymore. I still have a Schmitt Stix Yard Stick that is in perfect condition with the original Indy trucks and Sims wheels.

Wow, this thread brings back some memories...

I was a huge Caballero fan, and skated mostly his decks. I had a few others sprinkled in, but always came back to Stevie...

I had a 4' half pipe in my backyard for a couple years. Eventually tore it down, and started building an 8' ramp. Was about ready to attach the actual skating surface, and the city showed up and shut me down. A neighbor complained, and I couldn't proceed without a building permit. :( An expensive lesson for a high schooler...

My deck was completely covered with deck grip. Alva was cut out and the lettering was a few colors. I thought that was the coolest damned thing I had ever seen.

I did a google search and found my exact 1979 Alva deck (re-issue of course). Very Cool, many good memories coming back.

Listen to this.

About 5 years ago I was at a thrift store near Bannister Mall.I was just
looking around and found a McGill deck(It was greenish yellow in tint).

It was in pretty good condition with Tracker trucks and rat bone wheels.
While it wasn't bonite...it was the 7 layer maple version.

It was priced at 2 dollars.

Did I mention that it was signed by Tony Hawk?....well it was.

I bought it on the spot!

Unfortunately,during my last move it somehow became a casualty of alot
