When it comes to skateboarding in South Florida there was nothing like pushing your skateboard through the city or along south beach where the only thing that mattered at the time was to skate as much shit as you can. There was nothing better than waking up super early on Saturdays’ just to catch the tri-rail, head to Miami to have a session that who knows how was going to turn out. Kids got on this train from all the way out in Palm Beach and by the time you were near the Hollywood area there was tons of carts filled with people ready to go skate everything and anything the entire day. Sometimes spots became a bust immediately and unless you got there super early, you were bound to get kick out at all the spots closest to metro rail, metro mover and bus stops. Your best bet to skate was to drive if you had a car or knew someone with one that was down to hit it south with the homies.
Skateboarding in South Florida has been huge since back in the day, attracting people from everywhere to come down and skate. Although over time, things have changed from simpler times, Down south we got more than enough space and spots for everyone to go out and skate still. The culture in this Tri county is explosive, the scene for skateboarding is still here alive and well. Even if classic spots like citi bank and banco might not really be a go-to anymore, there’s always going to be a new spot right around the corner waiting to be waxed or skated. With skateboarding developing into whatever it is at this point, it has become bigger than ever before and although I don’t know if that is necessarily a good thing, you can’t live in the past.If you are still down to cruise around even if there is a chance that it’s going to 100 degrees out or maybe it will just randomly start pouring rain out of nowhere, South Florida is a one of a kind place with endless ledges, stairs, rails, manny pads and whatever else shit I’m forgetting that people skate nowadays.
