5 Years Later, Nehemiah Skateboards Again!
manual to 5-set ollie, courtesy of matt
the last time i really went skateboarding was… maybe 5 years ago? jeff and i headed out with brian, a high schooler, to the local skatepark. i’d never skated in a skatepark before, and i wasn’t really up for it with a bruised tailbone from snowboarding the week before. it didn’t really matter though; i had so much fun shooting photos and filming, it was ridiculous. the kids there could really pull off some of the gnarliest tricks. yes, gnarly. oh yeah, did i mention that they were all a lot younger than us? one kid, teddy, was only 14, and he’d already skated for 4 years. another, matt, looked like he was the same age, and had skated for 9 years. so jeff and i signed up, rented a helmet (which was so nasty from sweat that i bought a skullcap to wear under it), and hit the park.

dan dan pointing to the birthday boy, jacob
it’s friday, and we’re at TGIF ready to surprise our dear floormate jacob vandenbosch, who turned 21. i think we followed some kind of social law by being at TGIF on a friday night; it couldn’t have been any better.
