I had a short period as a skateboard punk. I first had a generic board from Toys R Us but eventually saved up enough money to go to the pro skate shop. I got a Vision Psycho Stick. I had fun for awhile but it didn’t even last the summer. I was going downhill on a sidewalk and another kid was biking up the hill towards me. He was crowding me off the edge and so I didn’t notice the sunken piece of concrete ahead of me. The edge of the cracked sidewalk stopped my board dead and I flew off landing on my back on a parking bumper. I actually don’t remember too much of what happened next. I remember a crowd and I remember the ride in the ambulance. I never skated again and traded my board for a modem for my Commodore 64.
