So my daughter started really liking my longboard since lockdown.
"Dad, why didn't you tell me longboarding was so fun?"
"I did tell you, I've been telling you for years. You should listen to me more."
She's been using my board but she wants her own for a bunch of reasons. During lockdown all the skate shops were closed and there was a shortage of stuff cuz imports from China got all messed up.
Anyways the mall opened today Day 1 and I snuck in and they had some sweet longboards, not too expensive. She agreed to pay half. It's awesome, a fucking cadillac.
My old one is on the left, her new on on the right.
Longboarding around aimlessly is one of my absolute pleasures of life. My daughter has been typically distant lately, that's normal teen stuff but parents feel the distance. The idea that I might be going cruising with her one day or night soon just melts the dad heart
