Howdy. I'm Beef. 30 in April. Born into a skateboarding family that hung out at Big O. Still have my first boards (3 Brewer's and a G&S) that originally belonged to my mom and her siblings somewhere at my grandparent's house. I've been rolling the same pre-thrashed, 30~ year old, hand-me-down set of black 63.5 CSI Kryptonics for over fifteen years. I used to skate for real. Now my body don't work no more. I get slappy. I dab a lot. I'll play anything you put in front of me except for keys and woodwinds. I disc golf. My grandpa was a friend and colleague of Dick Brewer (those 3 Brewer boards were gifts to my mom and her sisters from him) and from the mid-late '80's to sometime in the mid '90's he did a lot of molding/casting of prototypes for Gullwing (I tested a bunch of them. They weren't Independent. ), some of which turned into production models. I found the BDS forum while on the googles trying to track down a Clyde Slide (or at least some measurements) to make me one and learned that some crafty people on here beat me to it. Goddamnit... Anyway, I've got a nice, new Don Lincoln to plan out (hence the Clyde Slide research) and figured this was a place for like-minded folks who might could help me out or at least be stoked once my new stick is set up.

TLDR: Hi. I'm new here.

Thanks, W4R_P1G. I don't think I'll have much of an issue since I've got nothing to sell. Nothing skateboard related, anyway.

Interesting story.  Brewer stuff is cool.

Your bologna has a first name and it's apparently not O-S-C-A-R.

Welcome from Wisconsin.

I feel you on the Gun, flexy. An ex- of mine's father has one on his living room wall above his t.v.. Had to be jealous every time I was at the house. Always wished I'd boosted that board...

Also, in a whirlwind of oversight, I forgot to mention in my intro that I am a fervent supporter of the Los Angeles Kings hockey club. If there wasn't a game in fifteen minutes, I wouldn't be awake to be checking this thread. GKG.

Appreciate the TLDR synopsis.

Hello and welcome from Maryland.  

@ redrum, the problem with that is Paly's TLDR would be trimmed to 4 paragraphs.  [biggrin]
