I was in college from 1992-1996 in a small town. Maybe a couple other students skated, but they fizzled out due to college life. I would skate with the locals. It was cool to meet up with different people outside of the weird little self contained college world that exists. There were spots here and there. The campus wasn't so hot. I skated a lot by myself, which was good because I started to figure out what I liked to do instead of keeping up with everything. No need to learn inward heelflips. I subscribed to all the mags so I knew what was going on. Videos were kind of scarce so I missed a bunch of classics. Getting Slap for the last two years and their general direction was a big influence. It took maybe a year to a year and half, but I learned how to balance multiple tasks, which is a good skill to have. School first and then skate, but the first one doesn't mean you have to give up on the second. I never understand why people quit skating because they think they're too old or should grow up. You can balance it out.

I did grad school from 1997-2000. This was at a much larger college whose sports teams get ranked nationally in a big to me city. A ton of students and locals skated. There were spots a plenty in town and we took road trips. School was the priority, but I skated a ton and got way better from having friends to skate with at quality spots. It was a pretty awesome few years and I knew to enjoy the moment.

I don't get how they did fat tongues either. I think S One Insoles was making add-on tongues.

I think Marc's Bag of Suck part was covered in Thrasher's 15 year feature on the video. I guess it is on two hard drives and an iPod, so like Ty, Carroll, and somebody else have it. Since he split for Chocolate in 2003, it makes me think Bag of Suck would have been released sooner than 2006. I always figured his enjoi footage went to Yeah Right. I know he was a machine at that point, but how much more could he have done that didn't get released?

This was my big skateboard mystery. Dart Wheels:
