Glad to have found this forum...!  I was a skater mostly in the 90's decade, although my first deck I got when I was even younger - it was an '87 Gator spiral in green stain with gullwing pro III's in hot orange and Bullet church glass wheels in green. Miraculously I still have that deck after all these years, and it inspired me to begin collecting several years ago. Although my collection isn't anything impressive, I've got close to 20 decks right now, some NOS and some LTD/reissue.

Recently I began skating again for the first time in about 15 years, and found myself more interested in a late 70's style of cruising/sliding as opposed to the freestyle skating I did in high school. Naturally that new interest has inspired me to look further back into the world of skating before my introduction in the late 80's by watching films from the late 70's/early 80's and learning more about companies like Alva, Dogtown, GS, Z-flex, etc. Although Alva and Dogtown were still around when I was a kid, we seemed to view those as companies for 'older skaters' at the time. The shift in my new skating interest has also shifted my view as a collector, which ultimately led me here to BDS. As an artist and a skater, I am blown away by these decks, and am ashamed and stunned to not have found BDS sooner!

I am thrilled to have found a place full of people who appreciate both collecting and skating and who seem to be so full of information and willing to share. I have literally never met anyone else who collects boards, and most people who see my collection find it interesting but 'strange and unnecessary'. I look forward to being a part of the community here, and hope that I can find a way to contribute!

Thanks!

Hello and welcome from Maryland.  Nice intro! 

There are guys here with tremendous collections and a lot of riders.  And a few guys who have forgotten more knowledge than most of us can hope to acquire. 

If interested, there are a few threads where you can post up pix of your collection, like "what's on your wall" (http://bulldogskates.websitetoolbox.com/post/whats-on-your-wall-356211?pid=1288391502) and manufacturer specific pages in Collectors Corner (http://bulldogskates.websitetoolbox.com/?forum=28108).  Ton of others that could lose you hours looking through.  Try not to OD too quickly.
