I thought you skate / have friends..
or do you skate alone and what not.
Had a small group of friends and we all use to skate together, however over time, the group has slowly been picked apart.
One ended up in California somewhere, said he'd return but we haven't heard from him since.
Another one ended up in Louisiana, and haven't heard anything from him either.
Others slowly stopped skating, or picked up other hobbies like drinking and drugs.
Besides, I can't skate anymore atm anyway. I broke my board.
I have very limited set of friends by choice due to trust issues.
And most of the skaters that broke off into drugs had been open to it for years, as their parents and stuff did it around them as they were young.
When I started skating again like last month, after about a 10 month break. It didn't take me that long to get the tricks I had known back down. I was learning a new trick over a small 3 step gap since I couldn't land it flatland, when my board broke.
