It Kicks Butt

Here are two skaters' thoughts about skateboarding and the 2001 Slam City Jam.

I started skateboarding two months ago. I still can't do very many tricks but I can now do an ollie. The Slam City Jam was awesome. There was a massive skate bowl there and tons of people were there skateboarding and doing lots of tricks. I didn't do any because I'm not good enough to skate in the bowl yet. When I was there I met Bob Burnquist who is my favorite skater. I also got some free stickers and a t-shirt from Shortys.

I have been skating for one year. My worst skateboard accident happened when I was skateboarding down a hill. All of a sudden I started going really fast and I couldn't stop. My skateboard took off and I went flying. I broke my wrist and hit my head on the pavement. I was wearing a bicycle helmet and it broke in half, but I didn't hurt my head. At the Slam City Jam, I skated almost all day at the outside skate park and watched the street contest inside.

CHEERLEADING IS LIKE DANCE GYMNASTICS MIXED TOGETHER WITH WORDS. AND DANCE AND GYMNASTICS ARE CONSIDERED SPORTS.
