I do & I don't.
If your fairly new, you don't have a big mtn with powder, it's icy & all your doing is park. I think that's too big.
If you ride mt.Baker, nope. You just don't see that many hard packed groomers, every 2 or 3 days it snows a foot. There is a little mtn less than an hour north of baker that closes Mon,Tues & Wed. Thursdays are epic, sometimes it's 4 feet deep, you need a big board for that shit. @ least once a month
You ain't that old
, I think I got ya by a year
ya but we dint have sk8 parks liek the kids these days. I started skating in '86 on a Santa Cruz Rob Roskopp. When I was in my early 20s in chicago there was a big badass one that we would drive 30min to and pay 10 bucks to skate. Not like now where theres a free concrete park every 10 minutes.
edit: rereading the thread: Lonerider I assure you I know how to "carve", and I'm not a park rat by any means (trying to get over it and get in there tho).
