Not only do I watch I use to compete in the same type of competition. I was into in-line vert and street big time about three years ago. I can't believe how far the sport has come in such a short time.

I bought a skateboard in 1976 or so when they first started getting popular. I used to take it to the forest preserves and do the hills there. Man have they come a long way with that sh!t. My boy's into all that now.

I can't believe Dennis M'coy still competes in vert. That 360 deegan pulled was awsome. Then Pastrana blows his and does another one perfect after time runs out. Sweeeeeeeeeeet!!! Then Nate Adams with the flawless heal clicker backflip......now that is sikk

Hell I still skate but I find it a hell of alot more dangerous than racing. Do any of you guys who skated back in the days remember Rotation Station in rockford with the big blue vert ram in the back? I used to skate that every weekend. Or Turf Skatepark in Wisconsin? My first skateboard was a Vision Mark Gonzalez. That was in about 1984 or so.

Speaking of Eddie Fiola..... how about Mike Dominguez? He was the man on vert and Woody Itson was the man on flatland.

yeah Scrap is still open but mostly caters to bikes. I remember when scrap first opened up in 91 or so.. it was called 4 wheels out and was for skateboarders. There's a pretty good vert ramp in Woodstock.. forget the name of the place. Then there's triple R skatepark in Mundelein, it's pretty good.. with a kidney shaped bowl, a mini ramp, and a street course.
