Excuse Me, Car

Photo & Words by Connor Poulsen

Asphalt roads...the territory of cars and motorized vehicles. Despite the fast moving inhabitants of roads, as a natural inclination of being a skateboarder and skating in prohibited areas, we sometimes find ourselves cruising along the street dodging cars and being honked at.

Some roads are in better condition than others, and have different characteristics that make them more or less fun. Sometimes there's a bump that acts as a kicker, or a large crack to pop an ollie over. These are some of the simple joys we receive from skateboarding. Thank you asphalt, but concrete is still smoother.
