This weekend kinda sucked. I also really don’t like scooters.
On saturday I was having a pretty good day. I woke up and had a nice breakfast, walked my dog and hung out for a while. The weather was nice and it was also Earth Day. So overall a great morning.
I packed up my filming stuff and got ready to go to the skatepark to film some videos. Last year I made a skate video on Earth day with all my friends. It’s on youtube so you can go check it out if you want. Comment below if you liked it.
Anyways I get a ride to the skatepark and meet up with my friends Kai and Ben. I saw a poster outside the skatepark. I was curious on what it was so I walked over and read it and saw that there was going to be a signing and demo next week on Tuesday. I looked at who was going to the signing, and saw that it was mostly all of my favorite skaters. Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, AVE, Guy Mariano, etc. Those guys are at the top of skateboarding and are technically legends in the skateboarding community. I can’t believe they are coming to Santa Barbara.
Anyways that made my day better, and I started skating with my friends. I landed a new trick called a Varial Flip Sex Change which took a couple tries but it was cool. It was pretty hot so we sat in the shade and enjoyed our Saturday afternoon.
So far I’m having a great day. But this is when everything goes down hill.
I was just riding my skateboard around when out of nowhere, a scooter kid flies out of the bowl and spins his scooter around over his head. And then he smashed my shoulder with his scooter. I turned around and was like Wata heck but he didn’t seem to care much.
I was pretty annoyed but also my shoulder was hurting pretty bad. Scooters are so annoying. They are always cutting skaters off and cause chaos in the skateparks.
Anyways, I went home and saw that my shoulder was pretty swollen and I couldn’t fully rotate it anymore. I put on an arm sling to make it feel better and sat on the couch and watched some tv. I was pretty angry and annoyed that I got injured from something that was not my fault.
This was pretty much the end of my weekend and I just spent the rest drawing and icing my shoulder.
Happy Earth Day!
and if you scooter, you should definitely quit
