I get stoked on many things while I’m out cruising on my longboard.
- I’m stoked to see friends out enjoying our community
- I get stoked when a stranger throws a smile, a wave, and the occasional shaka as I cruise by
- I get stoked to explore new places, find new neighborhoods and new spaces
- I get stoked when the suns out, the air is warm and the breeze is light (feels like the world is giving me a hug)
But probably the thing that I get the most stoked on when I’m longboarding is finding a newly paved road or parking lot that is super smooth and wide open. No pot holes, bumps or chewed up pavement to worry about.
I can hear my Deviate wheels humming as they roll over the freshly paved asphalt. I can feel my Deviate longboard under my feet as I carve rail to rail.
Setting up for a run and then coming back and hitting it over, over and over again. Even better if there’s a hill with some room for big carves and boardwalking.
When I find a spot like this, I often day dream about it and plan my return.
I love being out on my longboard. That feeling of fun, excitement, peace, contentment…its pure stoke. I can feel that stoke through all my sense.
Sadly, it’s a fleeting feeling that lingers around for a bit and then I have to get back out there and replenish it.
