So today for the first time in 3 1/2 years I went skateboarding. It all started last weekend during Big John Diehl’s visit to NYC. We went down to Chelsea Piers and while we were there we walked past the skatepark. My mind was blown. It’s a all cement skatepark. Built California style to flow and snake. Be it that I’ve never been to such a skatepark and my current status as a “jogger” makes me feel old. I decided I must go.
It was amazing. First off I can still ride and pop a few tricks. I’ve lost a bit of my skills pushing through the transitions but that’s leaning a new park. I got there at about 9:20am and for the most part it was empty. Then about 10 it started to fill up. It was a beautiful day so people were out. I hope I can make it again soon.
