First skateboard I ever had was a red see-thru Nash
. Neighbor across the street gave it to me when I was eight and learned to ride on it.
Once was using it on the driveway when I fell off and it shot out from under. Went straight into the street just as a car was passing by. The car's back tire ran over it, skateboard bowed and then flexed right back to its shape. Tire tread was barely visible on the deck. Indestructible thing it was.
Surfing is one thing I've never had a chance to do. Hopefully, one of these days.
