OUR LAST ATTEMPT AT DOING THIS SITE
WAS A FEEBLE ONE.

ALTHOUGH MOST OF US PREFER
TO BE OUT IN THE REAL WORLD
ACTUALLY RIDING OUR SKATEBOARDS,
WE DO REALIZE THAT IT IS NOT ALWAYS POSSIBLE.

SO, THIS SITE IS FOR THE RAINY DAYS.
THIS SITE IS FOR THE DAYS
WHEN YOUR GROUNDED.
THIS SITE IS FOR THE DAYS
WHEN YOUR TOO HURT TO SKATEBOARD
OR EVEN FOR THE DAYS
WHEN YOU JUST CAN'T SKATEBOARD ANYMORE.

IT WILL BE A WAY FOR US
TO KEEP EACH OTHER POSTED ON WHAT IS GOING ON.
THIS IS OUR COMMUNITY.
THIS IS OUR SCENE.
THIS SITE WILL BE USED AS A TOOL
TO BRING US ALL TOGETHER...
A TOOL THAT WILL HELP KEEP SKATEBOARDING CORE...

SO, WE ARE CHANGING THINGS UP AROUND HERE.
WE HAVE A WHOLE CREW NOW...

HOPEFULLY WE WILL BE POSTING SOMETHING NEW
JUST ABOUT EVERYDAY...

PLEASE HELP US SPREAD THE WORD...
LET ALL YOUR FRIENDS KNOW...

RISE!!!
