Skate or get maimed

Tony Hawk and Neil Blender would be proud that there’s still at least one place in Sacramento where (for now, at least) skateboarding is not a crime.   In front of the Community Center Theater this afternoon was a group of skaters, peeling paint off the handrails and bailing almost into traffic.  One of them had a video camera, and was getting some quality YouTube footage in the bag.  I’m surprised that there aren’t any SPDs here, as they seem to be everywhere else.

Highlight was when a purple-laced-Vans kid jumped off the curb, kicked up against a News & Review box, and fell flat on the asphalt with a resounding “Aaaggh!!!!”  His friends across the street gave him a polite round of applause that would not have been out of place on the 16th at Augusta .
