Why Do You Skate?

Originally posted on sk8athlete:

After my car broke down I had to catch the train to and from work. Instead of walking, I take my Z-flex and I skateboard from the train stop to and from work. It’s pretty cool because I’m wearing a business casual work combination of chinos, a button up, a tie, and some loafers skateboarding through the Compton Towne Center parking lot. Although my car is now working, I’m not driving to work (at least to this job) any more. The stress of traffic and the “I don’t know where I’m going” navigation style of other drivers isn’t worth the meager pay I make at work for me to drive there any more. In a way, it’s a good thing my car broke down. I’m saving money by catching the train, I’m doing a big one for the environment by not driving my dead dinosaur juice drinking machine back and…

Longboarders taking to London’s roads

2 Jul Featured Image -- 1869

Originally posted on Metro News:

How London treats different forms of transportation is a topic that never drops out of the public eye.

But, as cars, buses and bikes all jostle for space on the roads, the City of London has been looking into another eco-friendly way of getting around, and this one’s unusual in some circles.

Longboarding is like skateboarding but a lot more serious.

Skateboards are for tricks, said enthusiast and city staffer Chris Gosnell, but longboards are for transportation. He’s part of a team, in partnership with YFC London, that’s been leading six weeks of longboarding lessons for kids in Argyle.

“It’s an opportunity to learn how to operate a longboard safely and understand the dos and don’ts of what it is to be riding safely,” Gosnell said, “Whether that’s in their own neighbourhood on the sidewalk, or on the street.”

Yes, the street.

Longboards are street-legal in London. Although bylaws vary…

I just wanted everyone to know that from now on I will not be reposting from wordpress.com several times a day.  I will still be blogging and reblogging here, but it is actually so much easier for me to have an online newspaper.  I have two: one strictly for indy wrestling, and one that is based off of my website, jadelafemme.com.  It is called “Blossom to Binary”.  It’s everything I am interested in that you see me post here, but it is soooo much less time consuming.  I am a single mother who’s kid is growing like a weed, as they tend to do, and I am also a caretaker to my daugher, who has non-verbal Autism.

I love sharing all the topics I find interesting and have people respond to it, but I also need to focus on my writing, which I will discuss in my personal blog:

And also my review blog:

Red Bull GRC: Skateboard icon Bucky Lasek earns first GRC podium (VIDEO)

Bucky Lasek added yet another X Games medal to his trophy case Saturday in Austin, Texas. But this one was different.

After more than two decades of competition, the 41-year-old has established himself as one of the most decorated skateboarders on the planet. But two years ago, Lasek decided to give rallycross racing a try.

His progress in the sport was recognized in 2013 when he earned Red Bull Global Rallycross’ sportsmanship award, but he had yet to get that breakthrough finish for Subaru Rally Team USA.

On Saturday, it finally came as Lasek earned X Games silver – his first Red Bull GRC podium – behind winner Scott Speed at Circuit of the Americas.

Afterwards, Lasek told the GRC’s official website that his new rallycross silver was “the hardest-fought medal I’ve ever had to work for.”

“It brings me to tears, I’m just holding them back,” he added. “My…

Day two wrapped with huge crowds as America’s Navy Skateboard Big Air took center stage and five of the sports best athletes fought windy conditions to prove who could show the best style, creativity and amplitude on massive ramp. At just 14-years-old, Tom Schaar claimed his first-ever gold with the night’s most impressive run – a memorable 720 over the gap into a 900 on the quarterpipe – earning him a score of 89.00.

As the second youngest gold medalist in X Games history, he beat out Big Air legend Bob Burnquist, who as most decorated X Games athlete in history with 27 total medals, added a silver to his collection with score of 88.00. Edgard Pereira rounded out the podium with a bronze-earning score of 87.00.
