    <---this guy. haven't been getting out as much with all the nice biking weather though. on a nice day riding my bike > skateboarding (cold and shitty nights are perfect for the angst of failing a ______ fifteen times down the same 5 stairs all night)

    that being said, yeah, we should do it.out of true.

    ilikeit, I probably met you at eastern boarder lol, I bought shoes there when I was into it during about that time.

    I would love to skate again but I feel like a moron going to a park with ten year olds. It is a young person's sport. By that I mean younger than 25. Unless you already rock dick at it.

    I used to have templetons too. I rocked Eight Ball out in, what... fuck... I forget what town. Began with a B. Had a bowl and some nice ramps and the guy who owned it would take air off the ramps while holding his baby on an 80's era one-tail.

    8 ball was in bellingham, i went there a lot from 10-13ish (bad place). it was later shut down in a coke bust, place was fucking sick though, i loved the bowl.

    cole im from ashland MA and a few of my close friends live in milford.

    meetball i skated 8ball a few times right before it closed, it was right when i started skating so i didnt get to skate it a ton before it closed.

    yeah idk my skateboard hiatis needs to come to an end because i got a board this past spring and skated with some friends and could still do alot of stuff i did before my knee injury.
    we should all try to plan a day in the near future to go skate hyde park.

    I still have a complete setup somewhere.

    I heard something about a bust being the reason they got shut down. What kind of idiot sets up a skate park called 8Ball then sell coke out of it? Really.

    i had m y 12th burthday party there, was AWESOMEEEE. we were all coked up.

    for real though, 8ball was the first place i saw animated porn, i was young, it was weird. (the dudes working the counter would watch it)
  13.  
    8 Ball got shut down during a hardcore show. I was there. It was Eye for Eye's last show. Forget who else played. A ton of people showed up. Too many, in fact. The police came and found the place to be in violation of fire code (too many people inside for the show, with not not enough fire exits). They kicked everyone out. Someone wrote "pigs" on the side of a cop car, and that sent the cops into a frenzee. Then some sXe kid and some non-sXe kid started going at, and one of them maced the other. A small riot ensued. From what I remember, 8 Ball never reopened after that in the same form. The counter people were Brain (owner), Mike Bell, Mike Graham, and Kyle V, and... someone else I can't remember.

    The park in Alewife was called Z.T. Maximus. It was owned by a go-cart dude name Ken, who later sold it to Ram (of Fat Ram fame). It closed quite some time ago. The C-Bowl is still there, however.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I echo the sentiments of feeling really old on a skateboard because I can't rip shit up. I could do some nose/tail slides and shit, but nothing really huge.

    I'd be down for some old man skate sessions though. Probably have to get a new pair of shoes though.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    I started skating at 7 but never tried t do much more than get places. Started doing tricks at 15 broke my arm/wrist in 5 breaks total gave it up. Most I could ever do was ollie from a nonmoving position. I sucked at it hardcore.Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world

    This was about the extend of my flatland skills. I think this pic is circa 1987, and I was about 11 or 12. I *do* know that I had a big-ass Black Flag logo on that back of that "bad-ass" jean jacket.

    Yeah, same on that Haro, too. The bike in that pic is my summer restoration project. I still own it. I was fucking with the breaks last week, and they are just so...bad. I was debating putting real rims on the bike to make the brakes work properly, but that would so just killed the wonders mid -80's essence of that bike.
