I may actually find some old photos and scan/post them. Just don't make fun of me because I look like Juan Epstien from Welcome Back Kotter.

Would have never guessed Epstein your internet persona lends more to Wilford Brimley.

Re: The 1970's

I was a skater also, Danno.

Just to run through the list of injuries...

Broken Left(1) and right(2) ankle.
Fractured left elbow (still skated)
Broken Left wrist (still skated)
Broken right thumb (Still skated)
I hellish of a case of road rash that went from my right ankle to the top of my right hip. (I picked scabs for a year after that)
and 2 Concussions

Boards I broke or broke me:
PP: Tony Hawk
PP: Steve Caballero
Santa Cruz: Steve Alba
PP: Rodney Mullen
Zorlac: Josh Gibson
Dogtown: DT Cross (Was so happy when I finally got this board)
and of course I had one of the original Varaflex plastic boards.

Re: The 1970's

I had a pair of those roller skates with lights underneath. Looked pretty cool at the rink. LOL

Does that count?

Lights on your skates counts for something but I am not sure its what is intended LOL. Did you have wings?

Re: The 1970's

I know. I'm so ashamed. There was a really bad movie that had some guy, the star, who wore black roller skates with neon yellow laces and lights under them. I don't know. I grew out of it...and I can at least say I wasn't the only one. Maybe it was even the 80's by then, I can't remember, but everybody who was anybody had skates like that at the rink. I swear it.

LOL

I started skating in the mid 70s. Stopped in the mid 80's after my 2nd torn ACL. My first board was a skinny G&S. LOL!!! I also owned a vareflex! I also owned one of those aluminum boards (Quicksilver???)

I stuck with what worked for me so I didn't change a whole lot. Several sets of basically the same products... PP decks, Independent trucks, Bones and Kryptonic wheels (german bearings of course).

Ahhh the memories. That was a really fun period of my life. I still have dreams of street skating and half-pipe shredding.

Do you ever have dreams about it? Skateboarding and BMX!!! Thats heaven!!!
