My new skate journey continues. On Friday I took my son to a Real skateboard demo at Sydenham skate park (Ishod Wair, Kyle Walker and Zion Wright if that means anything to you). It was an interesting crowd: lots of beers, tatts and so much weed being smoked I nearly got passively stoned :-D-: (It occurs to me some parents might see this as something to steer their impressionable 12 year old away from but I'm pretty relaxed about it. He'll come across these temptations in his own way regardless of what I do or say.)

The skating was great, and I was really impressed with how the guys gave so much time to the kids; stopping to take selfies etc. I guess it's their job after all.

Bizarrely on Sunday afternoon we were coming home and drove past a park just a few minutes from us; the pros from Friday were there skating a set of stairs and filming. We jumped out and watched Ishod do about 20 runs and eating shit repeatedly (no pads or helmet) until he finally landed it. The two pros and photogs watching on had a spliff going (had to ask my 6 yo daughter not to breath in too deeply :-D-: ). Again they were really cool when my son spoke to them.

Skaters are generally a better bunch of people than surfers. A lot more relaxed and communal.

Oh definitely. And Zion Wright rips. Hopefully he was nailing some long grinds.

Yeah Zion was doing these huge airs over a gap in a ramp, and pushing the length of the park to get the speed up. My son was there mainly to see Chima Ferguson but Zion stole the show.
