Re: *Official old school skateboard thread*

This week I Built up a reissue “house of kasai” Lester oak leaf deck Just like I had back in 1986. 34 years later, I felt just like I did when I was 15. This is from yesterday at the skate park.

Re: *Official old school skateboard thread*

Those old parks were just rad the way they were set up. When I was still really into skating 17-18 years ago I went to Olsner YMCA in Palm beach..I loved the kidney pool, they egg was fun, and the little L pool was cool...but what I really liked was the way the pools were all separated by grass and different elevations and walkways..that’s what I remembered about the parks bitd..and of course Kona and the snake run...I love a good snake run...


Please.....no Tuff Wheels on full on race bikes...original graphite’s only and pre 81 and never on a cruiser for God’s sake
Let me guess you were factory sponsored in
the 80’s...
Please no colored tires on race bikes...

Re: *Official old school skateboard thread*

Kona was like a trip back in time when I padded up in 2013....last time I skated at a Park. Walking through the doors...the snack bar...the pro shop...the snake runs..the big kinked over vert quarter pipe..this park should be a national historical site...not any as old as it still standing today.

Too bad you didn't get a chance to skate it before the cut the top of the snake and j bowl down. While I haven't been in a while,  I was literally there since day 1, https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/23382/20190918_1910285f1c5a2484.jpg

Re: *Official old school skateboard thread*

I recently put together a replica of my very first board I had.... way back in 8th grade.  Venture trucks, Santa Cruz wheels, etc.  Still need to add some rails big_smile

Very cool & in 8th grade we were skating hard. Same style board, right before the noses started growing on them...

Took this of Duane Peters (while he was on tour with the US Bombs) at the bowl we built back in the '90s in the north of England.

Re: *Official old school skateboard thread*

Do any of you guys know of any good online stores that might have some Powell Peralta reissue 80s decks in stock? I was wanting to start skating again but the Ebay flippers bought out all the stock the last few months.

Thanks Eben, I’ll check them out. I haven’t skated since 2007 and just recently got the urge to start skating again and wanted something familiar board wise.

Found some beaters today hit some rummage sales. The Valterra board looks like the Back to the Future board.
