What the f$%K is all of this about?

 

IN 1984 I FIRST STEPPED ONTO A SKATEBOARD, A RED PLASTIC BOARD DISPLAYING CALIFORNIA SUN. SOON I GOT A WIDER BOARD, A CALIFORNIA PRO, AND IN 1987 I BOUGHT MY FIRST PRO MODEL, A SANTA CRUZ JEFF GROSSO WIZARD. IT WAS RIDDEN UNTIL THERE WERE ONLY 8 CENTIMETERS OF THE TAIL LEFT. FROM THAT TIME ON, I GRABBED ALL THE SKATEBOARD  MAGAZINES I COULD. I REMEMBER CUTTING OUT ADS FROM MY FIRST MONSTER MAGS TO TAPE THEM UNDER MY BOARDS. I STILL HOARD SOME OF THESE CUT - UP MAGS. WE ONLY HAD COPIES OF THE SUPER EXPENSIVE VHS SKATEBOARD MOVIES, ALL THE MONEY WE HAD WAS SPEND ON NEW BOARDS AND SKATESHOES. I NEVER WENT PRO OR GOT SPONSORED, I JUST LOVED SKATEBOARDING.

BY THE TIME I REALISED THAT EVERYTHING I LOVED OF MY SKATEBOARD YOUTH WAS TRASHED, DIRTY OR SIMPLY LOST, I STARTED TO COLLECT. SOON I GOT ADDICTED, EBAY BECAME MY SUPERMARKET AND EVERYTHING WENT OUT OF CONTROL.

AS I CREATED A COUPLE OF WEBSITES BEFORE, I THOUGHT : WHY NOT ?!
I STARTED TO ARCHIVE MY COLLECTION, GOT MORE AND MORE MAGS AND BOARDS AND WILL NEVER FORGET THE LOVE FOR THIS SMALL PIECE OF PLYWOOD WITH FOUR WHEELS UNDER MY FEET. HAVE FUN IN THE SKATEMAGZONE !!!
