Stacey's a Sector 9 Girl!

I took the plunge this weekend...and bought a longboard. I didn't take much time contemplating this purchase, but after hanging out with Ken and some of his buddies, I realized it's really FUN!

I'm not so great at it, but I've managed to stay upright and not introduce my face to the pavement yet. I haven't figured a name out for her (him?) yet, but I'm taking suggestions.

When it came to color, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted a RED board (the blue one is Ken's - and he named her Molly). As for features, I was pretty clueless. Anyway, I hope the snow doesn't fly too soon so I can spend some time and work up some mad boarding skills.

What a great weekend - and what a great teacher (well, not so much - he just steadied the wheels so I could get on a few times...). And yes, it was my idea to take some "posed" shots in the church parking lot.

I LOVE THESE PICTURES!!! I'm so jealous! It's funny that Ken named his Board, Molly. You should ask him what he named his bike!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!

First order of business, Longboard chicks are hot, so congrats on that. Second, I thought I did a good job teaching. I talked to you about your stance and turning. Those are the basics. Didn't want to overwhelm cause boarding is all about fun. Third, Ashlee is a dork.

Looks like a blast! I am REALLY jealous, and I know Aaron is going to be really jealous when I tell him.

Maybe Santa will have to bring one to the Schnabel house (ha, ha).

I gotta agree with Kenneth on this one look hot on a long board. ;) Love that it's read. Be sure to post a new post when you figure out a name for her (him?).

I meant I love that its RED not READ. Sheesh! I hate typos! And I hate programs that don't have an edit button so that you look like a retard to everybody. RED RED RED!
