Every skate fan knows how important it is to have good skate shoes and some of them have learned it the hard way… like falling while skateboarding on the dean's office roof (see previous post)…
It's important because if you don't have good sports shoes you might fail when trying to do an ollie in front of a couple of hot chicks and that may end up costing you an invitation to their "no pajama party"… not to mention the damage to your street rep and to your ego. Ah yes, and you might brake an ankle or something in the process.
So here are some skate shoes suggestions that I've just found at a shoe's store in their Men's Shoes category to help you prevent those situations (see picture above).
These are new arrivals and they 're really cool for skaters! I especially like the iPath Reed Mid Black Suede shoes but maybe that's just me. These iPath shoes cost $59.95 and of course there are many other prices to chose from. Also check their Sanuk shoes page, they look great!
And the shoes are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to skate board gear, if you have the money and want to look the coolest skater in the block here are some other apparel items to consider:
Skate clothes.. t-shirts and sweatshirts. Suggestions: the "Plan B publicity zip-up sweatshirt" for sale in the same store mentioned above, because everybody needs a plan b); and the black "Zero Skull Emblem T-Shirt" because I love t-shirts with skulls (that's so 90's, I know).
More suggestions: the famous Toy Machine Beanie. There are some to choose from their catalog, I would go with a (you guessed it) black one.
Ups, I almost forget about the most important item of the all: the skate itself. And of course, don't forget the safety gear. There two items that I consider extremely important when choosing a good skate board:
it's chick magnet effectiveness and it's safety and versatile aspects.
Now, if you really want to make an impression and have money in your pocket the best thing you can do is go with a full set of items.
Here is one that I saw the Sephyr Sports Store, it's the "Grom C Biz C11 Scriber Complete Skateboard" kit. This comes with the (you guessed it) skateboard, 1 t-shirt, 1 tool set, and 1 promo DVD. The price is $149.95 which is a good price considering it's a full set.
You should now be the coolest skateboarder around, but if you want more, here is another item I saw in a different store but can't remember where right now: matrix sunglasses. This should do it.
There are a couple of places where you don't want to skate fail… one of them is over the train rails when there's a train coming. Especially if you're wearing your lucky shirt, that makes it even more frustrating…
The other one is over the dean's office when the dean has already suspended you for high speeding in the office corridors and has threaten you with confiscating your skateboard for the rest of the month.
What's the worst thing that can happen to skater while is skating home to watch the "Best Topless Awards 2011" on TV? Well, he might fall on his head, be photographed by a blogger, and ending all over the funny skate pictures blogs, that's what… Ok, visitor, now you can go and search for
breast best topless awards, I now you want to…
This post brought to you by The Intelligent Athlete Competition. All opinions are 100% mine.
Hey guys, here is an interesting online trivia test with an incredible prize that is currently active at the Intelligent Athlete Competition website. The incredible prize is this: You get an opportunity to win up to $1,000,000 cash! (see more details and the official rules at the website, link below).
It ends in June 15, 2011 so there is still time! This type of contests are great because they're a good way to prove to your
wife, kids, boss, and friends that you're not as stupid as you look!
The entry fee is $25 (a bit too much if you ask me, but if you think of how much you can earn it doesn't look that much really). And the way it works is simple and original to say the least. It goes something like this:
- You register to enter the competition;
- Login to the system on June 30, 2011;
- Answer as many trivia questions as you can before the time runs out, there is a 3 minutes time limit.
The questions are multiple choice which makes everything easier, and you have 12 seconds to answer each question. Each correct answer will be recorded by the system (you can not skip questions or give wrong answers or the trivia ends). That's it. It looks pretty simple.
The person who can give more correct answers in the 3 minute time limit will compete in the "athletic event"… Now, I'm not sure what this event is… yet. But whatever it is, i t sounds cool. I haven't been in an athletic event since last January (friendly soccer game), or since last Tuesday, if you count the loading and unloading of pizza boxes and beers off a truck to a party at a friend's house as an athletic event… It seemed that way to me, at least. Oh, and there is something on the website about the winner being able to elect a cash prize of $5,000 or something like that… cool!
So check the website out, register, and put your countless hours of watching tv contests to a good use (remember: you're not as dumb as you look).
