Go get ’em, kid. …

  1. Hands down, skateboarding is the coolest. Ever. And don’t you love the great hair that always seems to go with it? My older cousin used to skateboard at Big O back in the day. One of my favorite commercials is from the 70s, (might have been a Pepsi commercial?) with a girl in cut-off jeans, long brown hair, holding a pizza and skateboarding down the sidewalk. So quintessential California…

    My nephew was into it for a while back in Junior High so I took him to see Tony Hawks. : )

    Loved the film Wassup, Rockers for the skateboarding sub theme (not for younger kids)

  2. Actually, Mom, an “ollie” is just where you do a ‘hop’ on your board. And the trick you are thinking of is called a 360 Shuv-It. (3-shuv for short.) And these are all different tricks. But I had totally forgotten about these!
