This is well worth a few minutes of your time.
I grew up in the boonies about a mile from pavement. Ive been skating since I was about 9. in the late summer and early fall the town would stop grateing the roads and the dirt would get packed down pretty hard so I would find smooth spots to try tricks on. I stuck my first kick flip riding down my dirt road after getting off the school bus. I thought that was pretty gangster but this video clip put me in my place.
