    Skateboarding is pretty acceptable now. You can pretty much get away with it anywhere. Now back in the early 90's when I started in Minneapolis you could get tickets with ridiculous fines, you could...

    I like them somewhere in the middle. I just can't do the skinny jeans, but I hate super baggy pants too. I think my hatred of baggy jeans stems from skating in the 90s. I usually just wear "slim fit"...

    When I go skating my phone is either in my car or I leave it at home. I don't feel like dealing with calls or text messages when I'm out skating.
