I got a skateboard a couple years back and decided to finally check that off my bucket list. My nephew, niece and brother in law are all skaters. My nephew was the best. He was a lil Z boy in the making. Summer and hot weather always get my blood boiling to skate. And watching Lords of Dogtown on Netflix accentuated this craving to live up to the west coast kid that I am. I get why skateboarding was a bigger thing on the west coast. Long hair, chill vibes, sunny days, surfers etc. It's all part of the great equation.
I traveled down to visit my family and my niece gave me some tips and tricks to practice on. She's a lil nutter. She wanted me to record videos of her and she wanted to take photos of me so we did both. I had to dress super casual, which isn't me at all but when skateboarding its necessary. Now I just want to transport myself in only my skateboard and cruise around town. Be that rebel kid I never was when I had the chance. And I've got the long hair now so why not!
The Z boys are my biggest inspiration right now. The originals. The legends. 70s long hair, sunkissed skin, saturated colors with tones of green and yellows. It's all I'm about at the moment. Wearing my vintage DICK TRACY tee, U.O. pants, U.O. sunnies, Converse and using this killer zombie skateboard from my brother in law.
