Old decks were quite bigger and heavier than the new ones.
I began skating, when i was 8 years old, on a very old and heavy deck:
it was orange, black grip tape, purple wheels (it wasn't me to choose the colors...).
Some years later the decks of the new generation reached the market and i
bought one: it was just great! What seemed impossible to do with the old
ones, incredibily became possible with these new toys and even easy!
My first deck of the new generation was an
Alien Workshop, a wonderful,
simple, very light deck, painted in black, with an alien's head in its center.
On this skateboard i was able to perform for the first time in my life a
cool trick named flip and then, after that, some other cool one. It gave me
a lot of high time, for sure!
This is it, for now...i don't want to start crying remembering the good old
days, when i was young and everything was just about fun. Hey, this started
out as an html excercise! Maybe i should start a blog...maybe i should
start it from scratch, from a plain text page! Html is cool!
Be careful with your skateboards!
