Growing up it was all about skating. The only reason I ended up surfing is cause I got grounded from skating so much.
Back when Hickam Hanger was hard to get to, unless you had military friends. But I had a few going to school near the air force base. No skate parks exsisted at the time, except the old version of Ala Park.
Sucks though cause all your military friends would eventually have to move in 3 years or so. Good times, frothing to skate.
It was street skating or the lucky mini ramp sesssion.
Its pretty common I wonder what my skate friends from elementary and intermediate are doing now and where they are.
