Nick - X GRIND

Our address is http://skater.spydar.com - thanks dude...
and if you could hook us up with some left over hot rails that'd be sweet.

Nick - SAFETY

(and no i'm not kidding) :) I've got three pics of me (Nick). Pic whatever ones you want and post em please. Thanks.
The NAP Skate Crew For Maryland.
P.S. the first pick is a mute. the next is a 180 safety, the last is an x grind. ______

Dear hotrails,
NISS Chicago 1996 Remember these ... Our Prototypes ... we've come a long way baby!!!

I wish I could buy one of your rails but I don't have the money. I know it would be great if I did.
I learned my first grind about a month ago and I haven't grinded since because I live where there is not much concrete. Yesterday I saw your rails and right then I wanted one. Well thanks for listening. Maybe one day I will get one. your friend, john
Good luck Bro! We wish you well! - keep us posted.
Anyone got a used rail they'd be willing to sell? Infact - if anyone has ANY used equipment they wanta sell - Turn me on to it.. ... We'll start a used equipment board! I'll talk to 6th¢ ..he's been workin' on a board for us anyway .. Sweet - we could use it for this! Cool! Thanks - Slider

The First time ever

Gravity Games!!


Hi, My name is blader_guy and i was reading some of the mail and read one that made me think. Some moron wrote that bladers weren't coordinated enough to skateboard! This seemed strange because to blade you need alot of coordination than skateboarding ... so i think that person should go to school more often because that person knows squat. thanks

Im looking for Paul Lopez he's a blader I think his last name is Lopez please find him I want to know his age and where he lives and maybe his number lol i love bladers Always Cynthia

Yes - the sponsor here is The Marines! Hello,
My name is Nick. I am from Maryland and a bad ass skate. I was wondering if you sell metal grind plates that fit the across all four axels. If you need to know my skates are Ultra Wheel's Sabatage, size eight and a half. I can't find any around my area. i have the 5 inch plastic plates. I hate them. it's hard to do a topside acid and other grinds. They are like a half an inch thick. Thanks, nick_crown@hotmail.com
We don't sell anything here yet... just waiting for the right cat guy to hook up with us... but until then - anybody know where he can hook up with the right plates? E-mail him if ya do = gotta stick together - Thanks, Slider
