I recently bought myself a new longboard for cruising around campus and such (who knows, I might learn some tricks when the weather gets nice) and I can't wait for it to come in the mail!!!!! I'm a complete beginner when it comes to skateboarding in general but hopefully longboarding will be more forgiving. The head of the longboarding club at my college was nice enough to help me choose my first board. He really is a great guy, he's been so patient with me asking so many questions.

Here's what I'm expecting to get!! An Earthwing Superglider ! Now the thing is there's a little story behind me choosing this board. At first I really wanted a Bigfish V-lam, but it was way out of my price range. I really loved looking through the boards, and giving up on the Bigfish was a bit of a dilemma for a poor college kid like me. I eventually chose the superglider and ordered it, but the guy from the longboarding club came back with an offer with some people selling a used Bigfish for a great price.
:[ I think you can imagine my surprise. My Superglider had already shipped at that point, and I've decided to take that as a sign that maybe the Bigfish just wasn't meant for me. Goodbye v-lam, we just weren't meant for each other right now. Maybe in the future when I have a few hundred bucks to spend I'll see you again. lol

So... I'm a bit broke at the moment as you can tell. I'm still sick, and I SHOULD be typing my essay. But my professors don't need to know that. I may upload photos of me falling off while practicing on my new board once it arrives. It's scheduled to come next week.

I'm having a very hard time being patient right now. ;)
