I was listening to Studio 360 tonight, and there was a spot about an architectural writer who's recently fallen in love with longboards as a means of conveyance. I've thought about going back to skateboards as a way of getting around town, but never followed through on it.
I live in Santa Monica, where I tend to walk a lot to get to yoga class, local shopping, etc. Something like a skateboard would be faster than foot, cheaper than car, and easier than dragging out my pain-in-the-ass bike. But, would it be lame for a 28 year old hipster on the west side to pick up a board, or would it just be practical and a little hip?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
