    +1 to the list.
    Around these parts it seems you ride what you can, people seem to like freestyle on ramps though.

    +1 I think.
    I still skate when I have time. Used to skate alot when I still lived in HK.
    One of the reasons I don't skate is the serious lack of hardware and shoes here. [​IMG]
    I still have a number of Element featherlite decks imported from HK.

    thats pretty cool, I figured there be a few in the wood works. I find it actually really helps to see where people are coming from by what they do for fun. I already figured everyone here was a gamer, but thats a little more info. Anybody got pictures of local spots? I'm a bit of a whore for good skate locales. I'll bust up a pick of my local park.

    I've been skating street since I started 12 years ago, but this year I branched out into more racing related stuff like downhill and slalom. I know I know, its gay, but its actually alot of fun. I co-run a skate design "company" with my buddy making racing boards for people. Again, I know, its super lame but I have fun with it.

    glad to know theres some fellow rippers hanging 'round. Good on ya.
