Sold my first skateboard (sidewalk surfer) on eBay a couple years ago - sold for something like $120.

My parents moved out of my boyhood home so I needed to get rid of a lot of good stuff stored there-- first year Hot Wheels Redlines, GI Joe stuff etc. Stuff really got bid up on eBay. Sold my old Voit red, white and blue basketball for $100 (starting price of $10). Could have bought a pair of Carradan skis with the PayPal money -- but I didn't.
:D

That's funny - earlier today I was thinking of the line Skip said to Stacy Peralta when he was invited to the team and got his Team Zephyr t-shirt (Lords of Dogtown). I can't repeat the line here.
:P

Dagnabbit, you people cost me more money - just unboxed my new set up for the coming warm season. Kids should be psyched to help me put it together tonight though -

So the 5 year old asked me last week to build her a board and go skating with her like I do with her big sister and brother (10 and 6). And when the older two complained about the cool new stuff the "baby" got, I just told them I've truly always loved her the most ....

I will say the baby is the most fearless of the 4 of us. Good times in the Jeff B household.

I had an Alva just like that one when I was in college, great campus transportation and some awesome ditches/bowls to ride in San Diego!

Downhill Throwdown at Killington this Friday and Saturday as the IDF World Cup Downhill Skateboard and Street Luge come to town. See these folks cruise down East Mountain Rd at speeds as fast as 65 MPH. Won a street luge racer as a grand prize back from our season ending Ski Bum Race party. Haven't had the guts to pit my 57 year old body against the pavement yet.

Many years ago, summer, no snow, not enough wind to windsurf, got the idea to mount a windsurfing sail on a skateboard (hey gotta get the most out of it) since some of my friend did it. Clocked 50mph :eek: without effort and quickly realized how same said friends broke ankles (luckily I didn't).

Old enough to afford the toys and young enough to be stupid.

Watching Bones Brigade Search for Animal Chin right now. It came out right after I graduated from college and wasn't following skating at all. This is actually the first time I've ever watched it! It's on YouTube in its entirety with no interruptions.
