Why are we determined to stop the skateboarding scene growing?
By Slapdown at 2006-07-23 06:26

Hey there. Slapdown here, reporting for duty. Considering I've been a content writer for almost 3 months now, and I've done nothing, I needed to start sometime.


I thought a good place to start would be with something I'm quite passionate about.

I just recieved a bulletin on Myspace from an "unnamed member" from Skateboard-city regarding the site; dontdoitarmy.com.

Now, for the sake of you trawling through this site of awfulness, I'll explain it. Basically, this "group" of "revolutionaries" (ha!) are trying to start a war on major corperations like Nike getting involved in skateboarding.

Nyjah Huston profiled in the NY Times

That's right, 11 year old Nyjah Huston was recently profiled in the NY Times.  Times reporter Matt Higgens did a story about the pro skateboarder's maturity and seeing how young pros can get, even comparing Nyjah to the legendary Tony Hawk, who's pro carreer started at the age of 14. Nyjah is currently ranked 3rd overall in the Dew Action Sports Cup. For the full article, look here: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/07/17/sports/othersports/17board.html

Wade Martin of the Dew Tour, even stated, "In other disciplines, like BMX vert, the average age of athletes is 30 years old. When Ryan Sheckler was 13, people didn't think it could get any younger, but it has."

How good is your skatepark?

You and your trucks
By masterkickflip at 2006-07-21 17:20

As you probably know, trucks are the metal axles on your skateboard that enable you to turn. I will try to explain thoroughly in this guide all of what you need to know.
First, trucks will probably last you the longest out of any component on your skateboard. You may need to replace parts occasionally, but they tend to take a lot of wear and tear. You are going to want to replace your bushings when they crack. Bushings are the small, plastic objects on the inner part of the truck, to replace them, unscrew the kingpin bolt, and take them off the kingpin, setting the new ones on. Your kingpin may also need replacing. The kingpin is the long bolt the bushings go on. Both of these replacements are relatively inexpensive.
