when I skate street I only go as high as 33.5 mm wheels... but if I'm going to take it to vert, then I go really big. Sometimes as large as 45mm wheels.
This is what I grew up on. Virtual Reality and this. Later it was Fullfill the Dream and stuff... but mainly this. Roots.
RIP Harold Hunter. Same for EMB.
Damn that fashion is hilarious! It's like watching tapes from when you were a little kid or something. Or going back to a reunion only to see how much no one changed like getting revisits from the past... man... Those were the days though.

So,dan, you were a skater in the 90's then? Tiny,tiny wheels. I hate it when my wheels get to small,below 50mm because I have to push way more and stuff. But hey,I guess you can get wheels from your friends that are about to throw them out.
Get some 139 Indys,blank deck,and small ass wheels. be all 90's and shit.
I wish I could skate an early 90's mini ramp. All mellow and shit,not steep and big boy like.Because I suck.
Dudes. Last night,I ate like a big handful of chocolate covered coffee beans. I could feel like an ocean of diarrhea inside of me moving around.I kept farting and it stank super bad.So I was up until like 2:30 ripping farts. I didn't feel like getting up to shit. But I had to pee real bad so I pissed in a Gatorade that was beside my bed,still like 1/10th full. So it smelled like fruity piss. Kinda like those scented condoms. Those things stink.

I like how every comment has almost nothing to do with the post. Here we are on talking about scented condoms.
I skate my wheels until I think they're to small. And i wait until they're about 45mm. But when I skate pools/bowls I use 60mm. Do they even make 33mm. wheels.

We barely talk about the actual posts. Someone says something,then it reminds someone of something else. Then we go on tangents of whatever-the-fuck. I think the smallest wheels are like 50s or something.

Such a classic video, and around here maybe 9 out of 10 skaters haven't even heard of it. The whole thing should just be pic #42. For some reason like ten years ago when this was new to me I thought Ray Barbie was that guest dude big-flippin but it's Jovontae Muthafuckin Turner.

Don't have enough cash to buy some real estate? Worry not, just because that is achievable to take the credit loans to resolve all the problems. Hence take a short term loan to buy everything you need.

I'm so psyched people don't pick up on the sarcasm. and back in the day they actually made wheels so thin you could crack them. Realistically I ride 54mm all the time. call em cruisers when they get up to 60mm.

Need I remind you, this is teh internets. Sarcasm doesn't apply like it normally would
Posted By: Jgonzalez on July 24th, 2010 at 03:35PM PST
I kinda sound like a dick in my sarcastic comments.

I am glad that we don't dress like that any more. But I am super glad that we did.

I'm glad for everything.
tutus and weird arm warmers with clunky jewlery to help with beaming. Also- constant beaming after every trick with different facial expressions.'
this is the future.

nah I never wore cargo shorts. cargo pants when I was in fifth grade. then I evolved to jeans. it's pretty much just been jeans that fit me.
now I'm 24 and skating and see people wearing skin tight jeans. that's cool. I went through a ripped jean thing for awhile. I'm not to up on fashion or what's "so in right now".
as I type this I'm wearing Dickies black shorts though. is that close?
Posted By: d1ggitydan on July 25th, 2010 at 07:35PM PST
im wearing skinny jeans and a doors shirt.haha
i dont like to be full of myself but it happens
Posted By: hot,sticky,sweet josiah on July 25th, 2010 at 07:47PM PST
Dan, you have to get regular dickies THEN cut the bottoms off to make shorts. Then pretend you don't care about fashion and stand near the bowl. Bonus points if you're repping Thrasher and have Nikes on.

Posted By: d1ggitydan on July 26th, 2010 at 08:30AM PST
I guess they collaborated with Dickies? Surprisingly no ones pissed.
