Black Box Distribution and Zero

            There are more than a few main stream skateboarding companies out now days and a few have faded away. Some of the major skateboarding companies come from some major distributors that ship boards out to more than company. Black Box Distribution is the distribution company of my favorite brand of skateboard which would be Zero Skateboards. They also distribute Fallen Shoe Ware, Mystery Skateboards, Slave Skateboards and the Insight Clothing line. Each company has its own website that you can go to in order to purchase their products.
            Zero Skateboards has the Zero Skate Team with a few riders that skate for them in competitions. The Zero Skate Team is a highly recognizable skate team. A few of the skaters are Jamie Thomas and Chris Cole. They are the top two riders on the team in my opinion. They have some of the top skating abilities in the business. A few of the other riders are James Brockman, Tommy Sandoval and Keegan Sauder just to name a few.

Skate: Not Just A Sport At The X-Games

              Skateboarding is more than just a few guys and girls at the skate park or on the side walk skating. Skateboarding has become more of a culture or a life style in itself. Many people think skateboarding is just a way to look cool or exercise. It turns out to be so much more than that. It turns out the people you skate with become somewhat of a family to you. Skateboarding is also a way to take out your emotions like when you get angry or when you get pissed off.
              Skateboarding teaches you respect and patience in the way of learning. One of the first ways is how to ride the board and get “board control.” Then you have to take time and practice how to pop an ollie which is one of the first tricks you need to learn in order to continue on to tricks such as kickflips and hillflips. You get respect from your fellow skaters when you learn a new trick or they are teaching you how to land the trick you have been trying to land for a few weeks. Respect comes in all forms from your fellow skaters like them not ragging you if you can’t pull off a trick the first time or if you can’t manual right off hand.

Work In Progress

The challenges I have about writing is putting my words on paper or having my thoughts come out in an organized manner. I know i should start earlier on these papers or blogs. I should just work smarter on these blogs so that I get these done in a better manner. I should also just work on these with out so many distractions. I just really need to learn to how to work in an distracting environment.
