Skateboarding MAG

By Chad B., Trumbull, CT

I hear the wheels rumbling like a washingmachine
I taste my sweat as I suddenly lean
I feel my feet firmly plantedon the grip tape
I see myself whizzing by the autumn landscape

Myskateboard is a well-worn shoe
Scratches, dirt and much more, too
Thenthere are times when I take a hit
I'd probably need a first-aidkit

Kickflips, heelflips, and even 360s
All these tricks are hard onthe knees
The slick skateboard slides smoothly on a rail
My skateboard andI never fail

Skateboarding is number one
Maybe someday I'll make aton
But what would I do without a skateboard?
That would be something Icouldn't afford.

So I would have to say that I like this article but something I would suggest would be dont think about just skateboarding in life because when u get old and ur board your going to wish that you have something to do rather than just sitting around doing nothing with ur messed up legs... ps im a skater veteran... :)
