2006 Skate the Planet Skateboarding Blog Article

October 2006

An Unexpected Find I took my son Max outside this morning, strapped on his knee pads and watched as he knee-surfed the driveway on my skateboard. He had a huge smile on his face. Even at only 18 months, he knows he's doing something that his Dad loves to do. Soon he'll probably realize how much that makes me smile too. It's a powerful feeling to be able to share something with someone and see them so stoked about it.

Later we went to the mall to search out the first Pink Panther Cartoon Classics DVD - a selfish purchase for Dad, but it's something that reminds me of my childhood when things were simpler and joy was so easily attainable. I loved that blue aardvark.

Along the way I found a copy of Tony Hawk's Boom Boom Sabotage - a cartoon version of evil carnies who try to ruin Hawk's Boom Boom Huck Jam. We snapped up the Pink Panther and BB Sabotage before going to Trader Joe's for groceries and a balloon. Behind a small plate of graham crackers, Max & I watched the eerie darkness (think: Nightmare Before Christmas) of Boom Boom Sabotage. He loved it. What a great kid, I've got. Go get a copy for your kids!
