Was downtown Huntington Beach the other day...

And ran into no other than HB local Tosh Townend, who was signing autographs for his new sponsor, a surfboard company!

I got one signed. Sweet. I always thought if I had a kid, I would push him towards surfing rather than skating. The locations are better, and the girls are in bikinis instead of baggy skate gear. For me, I'm a lifer on a skateboard. I mean I grew up in Surf City USA and still became a skater, everyone around me in school surfed. Skating rules too hard. But once in a while I would be spending a hot summer day in a shit-hole like Dortmund, Germany and think, "If I were a pro surfer I would be in Fiji right now..."
I would never trade it though.

yeah, but at least the two sports share the same type of vibes and respects

I've only had limited exposure to with surfing but it seems pretty monotonous.

surfing relies too much on luck when it comes to waves. you can't always surf. that's why i love skating, the waves we skate are permanent. and you must look like a perv taking pictures of all the underage girls in bikinis. just sayin

I'm afraid of water.But i'm tired of the skater mall-core douche-bags that keep calling me out on kickflips and stuff.
Isn't Tosh off Element?That's crazy,pro surfer AND skater.Isn't surfing cheaper?you just need the wet-suit and the board.Humboldt county beaches suck,so whatever.

speaking of age and being perverted,I think porn gets better as you get older.because your significant other starts getting all wrinkly and boring.But hopefully there's still love between the couple.

Point is that I think I'd rather see couples with laptops too at cafes,in an light dark atmosphere talking peacefully together.Was really good.

I like that skating is for everyone with access to pavement, concrete, or ramps. Surfers must live near the ocean and have to depend on the right conditions to shred. Surfboards can cost lots of money too.

maybe surf is more amazing by the fact that we are an animal from earth not water animals, but skateboarding is more cooler and dangerous!! SKATE 4 LIFE !!!!!!
