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.
