    Default Skate Rats & Van Halen

    A little funny story...

    I'm am 35 and lately have been feeling extremely old due in part to the younger generation having no clue who Eddie Van Halen is. It just reminds me that these 20 year-olds were not even born before 1984 and 5150.

    Until yesterday, that is... when a little skate rat made me feel normal again LOL

    My 13 year old neighbor skates everyday outside of my house w/ his buddies. I just bought a board and was seeking help from the masters (That is a funny picture by itself). Anyway, I asked one kid about this "striped" board that I saw once and he replied "You mean the Eddie Van Halen deck?". When I asked "How the hell do you know who Eddie is?" he seemed as shocked as me and said "Who doesn't know Eddie? I love 80's Rock".

    I had to laugh that I was having this conversion with this kid.

    The below link is the actual board:

    This can be everything we dreamed

    I don't get it. How can you double-post a thread forty minutes later?

    This board is odd from time to time. If you notice, whammy fixed a spelling error. Sometimes when editing, one can double post.

    The other evening was a joy when I was trying to put up a thread containing a pair of Chet Atkins/Mark Knopfler videos. We lost power a few times in the process, and lo and behold: 3 threads!

    Regarding the topic, seems like loads of kids seem to be into VH lately, at least now that the tour has started.
