    Excited to see this take off and become a home for downhill Stoke!

    My vision is a place for stories, photos, art and people helping each other. My nightmare is it becoming a “which wheel is best for sliding?” Rabbit hole

    Thanks Mark. I want this to be a place that is a refuge from Facebook
    A place for newbies to learn and enjoy and for lifers to do the same.

    Hopefully it’ll become a place for everything longboard related, from newbies who want to learn to people showing their custom made decks. For me it should also be a place where you can come with questions. When I started silverfishlongboarding was a major resource.

    Silverfish was of a time and place. Pretty soon, there will be a whole new crop of skaters who’ll say “what’s silverfish longboarding?”

    The truth is that Concrete Wave is what you make it.
    If you think this is just a regular website, think again.
    If you think Concrete Wave is just a magazine, think again
    It’s never been about the medium…it’s always been about the people

    I am grateful for those who’ve joined early.

    Now the fun can truly begin.

    It’s liberating to know that no matter, skateboarding is always there for you.

    PS – we welcome any and ALL facecrook refugees.

    I am here to promote the style of skating that saved my life!! I almost died a few years back after many surgeries and other craziness I found Mr. Chris Yandall and skogging (see skogging.com) After a year or so of practice skogging became my main way to workout and commute. My goal is to hype this sport/life changing discipline and hype the company that backs me and my treks http://www.whateverskateboards.com

    As a huge reader of CW I am blown away that we can log on and post!!! #BLESSED

    Now SKOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have been looking for an alternative to Facebook, and I hope this can be a place to go to as I distance myself from there. Share thoughts, share my blog posts (skatebdcd.com) about skating, and connect with other skaters in a searchable format without the newsfeed clutter and without someone selling all my information off to a highest bidder.

    What a joy to find this!

    I’m stoked.

    You’re right.
    We are building an alternative to facebook one rider at a time.

    Thank you, Sean!

    I’m glad to be here and I’ll do what I can to see this forum grow. What a great place. I’ve given myself until the end of July to get off of Facebook completely, and I’m glad I’ll have a better place (searchable, organized, and not harvesting everyone’s information) to share with people.

    Silverfish was awesome and I miss it. I’m here to talk skating with everyone and to get away from Facebook.

    Let’s do this!
