- on May 27, 2017I dont feel like any of us really chooses to stop skateboarding; life just prioritizes it out. Thats a weighty opening statement, I know, but for each and every one of us, eventually there will come a time where you will be forced to make a choice: maybe not one big sudden decision, but a series of smaller decisions that overall limits the actual activity of skateboarding.

This past 4 weeks have been really fun and interesting for DockSession. We made the transition from parking lots games to skating a hill and giving people pointers on how to slide. "Franklin" has been the home of fun sessions for more than 10 years now, it got repaved and pavement was little rough for a while. Now it's perfect.
- The Gel Lab sessions are just shy of almost a decade old. Thats almost ten solid years of skateboarding on Wednesday nights with good friends and in good company. I wont lie, weve lost a few people along the way, and I mean that both metaphorically and physically. Life runs its course, and just like the cycle of the seasons, faces come and go. With that being said, Ive also come to know that some of The Gel Lab sessions longest running attendees have had their stints of disconnection as well. Sometimes even the most fervent session goers just need to ghost out for awhile. However, for me, the greatest gratification is seeing some of those long lost faces re-emerge from the abyss of obscurity. I assume the reconnection stands to represent a bit of a revival of sorts, a re-association with something that made you feel good about yourself.
