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.
