Here’s something you learn if you’ve ever lived in a college town for more than 3 weeks: Longboarding is dangerous. I can’t tell you how many times I saw a hippy-looking dude with long hair and a tight-fititng t-shirt biff it in the middle of the street on a longboard. Happens all the time. I get it. Longboards look super cool and, if you get good enough at it, you can take it any where everywhere. Chicks dig it. But a life rule that I’ve lived by for awhile now is never get on anything with wheels that can tripped up by a crack in the pavement. Car? Good to go. Motorcycle? That’s fine. Bike? Ehhhhh we’re getting closer to a no. Longboards and skateboards? Fuck that. That’s scraped up knees and elbows waiting to happen. Oh, and try and avoid deers when you’re on a longboard too. Because if you don’t, you’re gonna eat a face full of asphalt and turn a deer into Tony Hawk at the X Games.
