Florence, South Carolina. Small town uncoolness personified. My first skateboard, I kid you not, was almost identical to the one above. My mom took me to Western Auto to buy it.
But then I swapped some stuff with D.A. and got his Bahne. D.A. was a _ussy anyway and wasn't gonna do much with it on his best day. No skate parks and certainly, no cool surf/skate counterculture to accompany the desire to go fast. No "look" ... no kit and surely, no freakin' safety helmets. I'm gonna try and find my old Bahne when I go home for Christmas.
It was Florence and Florence wasn't cool.Onward. Headachy.
PS...Even though Florence wasn't cool, I am the THIRD coolest guy to come out of there. Ever. I'll write a story one day about the other two.
