My first board was an alva. Who still skates? I'm 36 and I do, Couple of years ago I worked with and for a bunch of suit wearing stiffs and road rash got me fired cause they though i was gonna Tyler Durden them. I love trying to explain road rash to bankers and stockbrokers.
Damn right I should have, They waited til i got home on friday 10 min after my direct deposit confirmed HR and my boss called me and were like we cant have you bleeding through your clothes at meetings...I was like its not ok to bleed? they said no its ok to bleed but you come in with scrapes and bruises all the time and we dont think its appropriate. I got paid a severence to shut up appear to the kool-aid drinking masses employed there as if I was fired and leave so at that point so I took the money and ran. Surfed a lot that year.
