I came across an interesting article in the Health section of the LA Times today. It talks about the rising popularity of longboard skateboards particularly among surfers, snowboarders, those on beer runs and women.
A quick aside, longboard skateboard enthusiasts, manufacturers, retailers, et al, you need a new name for your pursuit. Sorry, Charlie, longboarding is taken. I don’t care what you want to call it but to separate yourself (and maybe even get your own category on stompandflow.com), you must come up with something. My vote? Bombing.It is not original nor politically correct, nonetheless, a name.
As this was a health article, it concludes by mentioning an Angelino that lost 60 pounds in four months by riding his skateboard. Are you telling me that Jared could have been rocking one to fakie this whole time?
