Skating, My New Source Of Peace. A Few Clips.

I have mentioned before how I have been finding much joy and peace through longboarding. Well I captured a few clips this weekend. I dont claim to be some awesome skater or anything like that. I am just a cruiser. But I hope I captured my stoke for skating. Here are a few of my favorite clips I shot.

Dude! That was like watching an eagle soaring. So quiet, so peaceful. You definitely captured it.

That's cool!  This seems to be a growing activity around these parts as well.  While out on my bike I'm seeing more and more long boards.  Looks like a lot of fun!

Nice man. Good to see another skater on here. I've made quite a few skating vids in the past, and one bit of advice I'd give is to find a friend who can also skate, or at least drive behind you, and get some follow shots, cos POV alone can get a bit repetitive.

 

I longboard a bit, although it tends to get a bit boring for me just cruising, and my board is no good for bombing. My board of choice is the freebord though, cos it replicates snowboarding, which is what I love. Here's a freebord vid I made a couple of years ago:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-UVHjFQQe8

 

Keep it up dude. yellow.gif

Nice video. I have never seen those freeboards before. Looks chill. It would be nice to have someone to skate with. To be honest I don't have many friends right now. I'm dealing with a lot and don't want to be around my old Christian "friends".

 

Hell, my own wife is hardly my friend anymore. I started to tell her I have doubts (didn't tell her i just don't believe) and she flipped out.

well you're certainly not alone, all my friends disappeared when i left church and while I don't really miss them because i now see them for what they truly are (hypocrites mostly), at my age (40) it is not a simple thing to make new friends. Although, I did make a couple by organising some ride days for Sydney freeborders. Are there many longboarders in your area you can hook up with? Maybe lurk the longboard forums or start your own crew, just for cruisin'. I'm a very shy, introverted type, so if I can do it anyone can. Having a common interest makes things so much easier.

Darthkoopa- Hill Bombing looked pretty daring. Owen 652- Racing Rats looked wicked as well. Never got into the downhill much. Don't like the speed wobbles. I used to skate prefessionally back in the 80's. Mostly in California at a place called Del Mar.
