Sunday~Ice Cream Sundayz was a fun experience.
Back in December of last year, I wrote a post titled, With Patience…..
In it, I described the life I was enamored of, at the age of 9 or 10. I dreamed of being a street urchin, because sitting on a street curb symbolized independence and freedom.
That’s what skating is all about.
Give me freedom~Give me independence~Give me a trash can to jump over!
This is Rob Ruy, owner of the Pipeline Surfshop, here in Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island, FL.
He puts a lot of energy into helping the local kids shine in both sports; surfing and skating.
The island is going to have some skating going on! Every Sunday in November, there’s a competition, called ICE CREAM SUNDAYZ. The skate park here is a haven for a lot of young, serious athletes. Shooting this sport is very different. But it’s exciting and fun, so I’ll be there.
Not all surfers are skaters, and visa versa, but I do see some dual participants.
Marco Pacheco, the Costa Rican guide in the Endless Summer, recently said~surfing is to skating like football is to baseball~I believe that to be an accurate appraisal.
