I will be moving to Newcastle next month from Canada. I took up long boarding last year and am keen to get into the local scene, meet some new people and hopefully learn some new stuff. I'm into mostly cruising and dancing right now. Although I'm starting to develop a thurst for sliding and downhill as well.
Is there still a weekly session?
Hey mate, not in newy much anymore but was there for a few years (moved recently), theres a bit of scene going on these days, not much of a weekly set session but usually something going on. Theres a few guys with cars so would be best to get in with them and as they travel a bit and get to some of the Sydney events. have a search for "newcastle wheelyboard whores" that the local group where sessions are organised.
Awesome, thanks man. Looks pretty hilly there, can't wait to come explore.
Where abouts in newie do you live? Im in kotara, dont know how well you know the city yet tho.
So I checked out Newcastle Wheely whores. But they never excepted my request? Perhaps some one could nudge the mods and let them know Palm Pilot Elvis is ok?
Patrick, I am in New Lambton. Not far from Kotara at all! I recently heard about a track down by Blacksmith beach. Thinking about checking that out soon. Keen?
Sweet man, would love to have a few boys to skate with. I'm 32, is that awkward?
The hill is called Fernleigh track, have you heard of it?
I see your into downhill and sliding. I'm hoping to get a new board in the near future, and learn how to slide. Perhaps you can share some tips?
Hope you feel better soon.
Ahhhhh 15, that is a bit young?
I ride a 60" fat daddy with Paris trucks. Mostly for cruising and dancing. But as I said I wanna start sliding. I'm sure we can still bomb a few hills. Just won't be goin for beers after. lol Meeting people is always good. Besides gotta keep the sport alive!
Ya, we'll meet up for a jam some time and see how it goes.
I figure, you know how to slide, I wanna learn how to slide. I have life experience, you may want advice some time. It's a mutual learning experience. Like I said we won't be goin for beers any time soon. But we can still hit the hills. Helps keep you guys outta trouble! lol
Ya, my fat daddy is a beast. But it's so much fun. Perhaps I'll let ya try it some time.
