Need some skateboard culture stoke to get you through the last bit of winter? Look no further than Kevin Wilkins latest essay on the eternal blaze of skateboarding. It focuses on the fact that if you were ever REALLY a skateboarder you can never walk away. Somewhere in your brain it’s always going to be lingering. Walking down a street, you’ll always be seeing opportunities for a spot.

 

Sample:

Something like this: If you’ve ever really skateboarded, you’re fucked. You’re doomed. You’re in this thing forever. And if you think you’re gonna just walk away, forget it. Something will always bring you back, sputtering, popping, and gasping along with the rest of us idiots.

No punchline ender here. Sorry.
