     This thread gets me stoked to go out and try and actually improve at skating. I've got a pretty limited bag of tricks... it includes...

    1. (Very shitty) Ollie

    And im working on other stuff...just you guys wait. I need to get a new set up first. I'm still riding this birdhouse complete when I got in 5th or 6th grade where the nose and tail are destroyed from anger/slams/more anger. It has also been left out in the rain one or fifteen times. Just a bit waterlogged. Oh well. Skating looks very fun though when you are good at it.

    Brand new team pain concrete park just opened here about 2 days before winter set in and the snow stuck around. It's not Aspen but it's good either way. This is what they have finished so far but from what I understand they have plans to expand and do more. And we get to keep our old wood park too.

     I got one shot of me in the miniramp here. The old park is good cause it's right next to a bunch of baseball feilds. There's not lights directly on it but in the summer the lights from the fields get it good enough to skate well past dark. Best time of the day to skate because it's not 90 degrees.

    The name of the capital, Kampala, means "city on 7 hills" - the city clears out at night - and the lighting is ok on a few streets - we brought some longboards back after I went for holiday in CA... I'll post photos when we make the attempt.

    This photo set was posted last week - so sick what Mubiru is doing :

    Skateboarding in Uganda  

    A shot of our crew skating that park made it in out catalog : bottom right :

     I grew up skating and snowboarding with James Hedrick, who is the head concrete guy at Team Pain (he RIPS at both). They make amazing parks!!

     You've never heard of Richie Jackson? He's got kinda weird or different style I guess but the first time I watched one of his parts my jaw dropped.

     B owns AW.

    It looked terrible on snowboards, looks terrible on skateboards. Double exposure FTL.

    I know about the ownership, I just think the AW versions look a lot better, IMO.

     those warhol decks look pretty cool. i agree the snowboards were a bust but i like the skate ones better. reminds me of my favorite graphic- the enjoi boards a few years ago with the neon presidents faces on them. those were sweet.

     I want to get a new skateboard, and not much shocks me anymore, but seriously, $250 for a piece of wood that I'm going to snap in half in a couple weeks? I'll stick with my walmart deck. But a longshortboard may be in order sometime in the future.

     70-100 for a deck, 60 or so for trucks, 40 for wheels, 20-30 for bearings, 15 for tape and hardware.

     This is probably what's going to end up happening to my walmart deck. Oh, and watch the snowboarding too.

    expensive deck. unless youre talking in Canadian money.
    decks here are usually 60 or 70 at the max. and thats with funky pop super special unbreakable wood stuff. i get most of my decks for around 40 or 50
