skateboards

The day begins. Candles are lighted and incense is burning. Cold beer at my side.
My first job ever was at a joint called South Bay Skateboard Park in 1977. It was on Altamesa Street in south Fort Worth. One would never know it existed now. There’s a strip mall or something like that over there.
A couple of other like-minded parks opened up in Arlington
and then insurance companies dropped everybody. So much for having a good time. I probably would not remember much about those skating days except for the DVD release of a fantastic documentary that goes by the name of Dogtown and Z-Boys. Killer sound track. This film is a must see for anyone who was ever a teenager.
There is also a flick called The Lords of Dogtown, which is about the same guys, but the documentary is better. Adios por ahora.
