I was skateboarding in the same era as the Z-Boys. Unfortunately I was in Ohio. Our biggest stunt was to make it down a long hill on a sidewalk that ended in small gravel, or grass if you could steer well enough to get to the grass.
More than a few times we'd recover from rides by plucking out very small rocks deeply embedded in the calluses of the palms of our hands. These were the bonding moments for young adolescents, and so I guess that's why they're the things I remember.
