Back in the days when I still skated there was a definite music scene around skating. I would say that my skating days were 89 to 2000 and through most of it I was listening to Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax, Slayer, Rage etc... certainly through my early skating years.

Later on after I stopped skating I still used to watch skate videos and found the soundtrack to a lot of them really appealed and let me find new music. A stand out was the soundtrack to the Spike Jonze directed “Fully Flared” for Lakai.

What is everyone else’s skating soundtrack?

Suicidal Tendencies, Anthrax and Slayer for sure. DRI, Stormtroopers of Death, early Megadeth and Bad Religion too.
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger,

Early Megadeth and Faith No More were my jam for a loooooong time, still listen to early FNM regularly now.

That era of thrash was the soundtrack to skating in the UK in the early 90’s, or conversely NWA and 2Live Crew for a bit of rap.

I have great memories of building fly off ramps and portable rails, smashing the shit out of my Santa Cruz Rob Roskopp (my first double kick deck), or before that my Vision Gator and Powell Mullen.

Not skating, but skate related… I was back home in DFW last weekend and there is Finally (like 20 years too late lol) a skate shop within walking distance of my childhood home.

Sick supply of hard goods and some higher end soft food from Polar and Nike SB..

Picked up some Polar ‘93 denim and while not the quality we are used to, I’m embracing the space and enjoying them thoroughly!

If you skated baggies in the 90s, these are for you!

Bought a new board…

Graphics of this board references the Powell Peralta Pro: Per Welinder -The Viking Skull!
(But the influence of Freestyle into modern skating is another story to tell, just behind the insane vita of Rodney Mullen.)

Andy Anderson is actually outstanding on a beautiful path…..

Stopped by Vanish Farm Brewing this afternoon. These decks brought back a lot of memories.
