Skate or die

This is a small online art gallery of different photographs, a piece of art, as well as a tastefully artistic video piece about two of my favorite things: Skateboarding and Ice Skating.

One of my favorite skateboard manufacturing companies World Industries put out a magnificent collection of artwork on their many skateboards throughout the years.
The maneuver shown here is a classic, and aptly named, "Handplant". One of the earlier tricks invented through 'vert' or ramp style skating, it is one of many classic tricks.
One of the great things about skateboarding is that it can be done almost anywhere, and at any time. Over time skateboarding has become widely accepted around the world.
This video is an excellent example of what it takes to set up certain events. Not only is the skating a center piece, but events like these bring people of all types together. They're just great fun!
Believe it, or not, roller skating was a big deal once. Considered a little more acceptable to all, roller skating had its place for fun, exercise, and competition.
Ice skating has been around a long time, and one of the more popular forms of ice skating is figure skating. Figure skating is so well known, that it has become an Olympic event!
Where there are humans and fun there comes sport. Ice Hockey is one of the greatest in my opinion. Hockey has been around a while as well. Shown here are some boys at practice over a half century ago.
St. John's school team pictured here dates back to 1907. Over 100 years ago, this picture shows just about how long humans have been competing on ice through sport.
One of the greatest goalies ever Terry Sawchuck stops a hockey puck with his stick. It is hard to believe that they didn't wear helmets, or masks, to stop a hard rubber puck that flies at over 90mph!
This painting from the 1620's depicts humans skating on a frozen river. Hard to believe on of my favorite past times dates so far back!
