Kook and proud


Ever have an idea that just bombs? My plan was to make a picture of myself pass for a mannequin. I wanted to photo shop it to really look like a window stiff. But it got later and later and I am out of time. On to the story.. "Kook" is a somewhat derogatory term used (usually by youth skaters) to refer to skaters over thirty years old, particularly over thirty Skaters who wear pads and a helmet. I'm kook an I'm proud. AND I am posed like a mannequin! What could be better??? I'll tell ya... Years ago I placed a banana peal on my head and took a picture, now that.... THAT was cool! Q: What does it all mean??? A: I get more eccentric after 1am, good night.

Is THAT what Kook means? I thought it referred to northwest skate comic artists or maybe skate bloggers... oh wait, crap. Nevermind. As long as your not mongo. Ha!

LOL! Fo sho!
Ya, I have seen it other places as well even in Thrasher ramp plans! I think the youth in the northwest are more militant with the term.
I have been riding switch, and pushing every combination (even mongo haha) ) for about a year, its fun. Ever try to kick turn switch? Its hard! I can drop in switch but I am working on getting switch kick turns smooth! lol! I'm Kooky and Dorky! YA! lol
