Skate Stoppers and Starters

Sometimes it's real easy to go skating and have a good time and sometimes it's hard as hell. The spot may lack the necessary amount of wax to yield any real satisfaction. It may sport some new metal jewelry touting its superficial importance. The spot may attract deeply concerned citizens, volunteer watchmen and heckling passersby. But sometimes those metal brackets come off and the wax goes on like suntan lotion. And sometimes jocks will cheer you on to make a trick and then hand over a generous portion of their PBRs as I'm thinking there's nothing I'd rather be doing.
