Back in the days of the KOOL Normal skate boards ( Powell, Vision, Nash... wait not Nash) I use to drop in to half pipes, do some street skating, and fly off of launch ramps. Now all I can do is a hand plant, and barely land it. I tried to get back into skating about 4 years ago and found out how much abuse ankles take while skating, which made me wuss out. Here is an example of why I can't get myself back to SK8. It is in ANIMATED GIF format because I think they are a lost ART form.
