Skateboarding and all that Jazz

Skateboarding is like Jazz.

It has your body moving in all types of ways.

Your arms flying high, your feet off the ground

You and your partner are the center of attention

All are welcome but men seem to dominate the instrument.

The better you are, the more fun you have.

Space is needed.

There are no rules.

Improvisation is encouraged.

The game can go on and on and on for miles

kinda like a Miles track.

It’s taken seriously by those in the game.

Only a few understand the art.

If you don’t understand, you are a square

Coolness is involved too.

It looks fun. It seem easy.

But doesn’t all Jazz seem fun and easy?

Of all the guys there, I think this kid was the coolest. You have to have some type of high self-esteem to pull off this look. He was a cool cat. Very laid back. I think he was the first to pull out a cigarette… Speaking of Jazz… Oh, and his name?  Fidel.
