SheShreds – a Sisterhood of Shredders

I have always felt like a bit of a loner, as my interests don’t usually align with those of my friends and acquaintances.  I’m not much of a drinker, partier, or socialite, and that is how 90% of the people I know socialize and entertain themselves.  I, on the other hand, still enjoy playing with my friends.  I love action sports and trying new things, but it isn’t much fun doing them alone.  Unfortunately, I have a very limited number of friends, especially female friends, who enjoy the same things as I do.  Enter – SheShreds.Co – an awesome collection of outgoing females, who shred.

Skateboarding to Work

Well, I can cross another one off the Bucket List today.  I have been wanting to ride my longboard into work for a long time now, but kept talking myself out of it.  I would tell myself that I needed to better plot my route, that my skills weren’t up to par.  How would I handle curbs and obstacles?  What if I wipe out and become the comedy act for the long line of rush hour drivers?  What if I die of exhaustion, and they don’t find my body for weeks because I fell into a roadside gully?  I’m going to look ridiculous!

Bucket List: Backyard Skate Park

Today I can cross one off the childhood dream / bucket list.  I just picked up two Freshpark quarter pipe ramps and a stock pile of LandWave ramps for the backyard.  We already had a few LandWave ramps, and were looking for more when we stumbled across an epic package deal for all of the ramps.
