Rockin' the Box
Inaugurated the new grinder box at the Bease park tonight. Last year's box was destroyed by the elements, and the elemental action of the skateboarders wearing away at the wood and steel like the waves of some wheeled ocean. The new box is identical to the old one: about two feet high and twelve feet long. Maybe I have the dimensions wrong, but it's high--almost too high for this flatlander. But I managed a few grinds along the metal edging, laid down a few boardslides, and my trademark no-comply tail-slide. It's all good training for skatecamp. I signed up for all five days at the end of the month. That means I have three weeks for training. Computer is busy tonight. Gotta go.
