Skate-Insomnia

Schon mal schlecht geschlafen weil das skaten so geil war? Völlig fertig von der Session, aber der Kopf hört nicht auf zu skaten? Ich hatte das oft, und auch mit fast 44 passiert mir das noch. Erst vor kurzem in Stuttgart, nachts bis 2 Uhr kein Auge zugetan weil der Beton so smooth und das Steincoping so schön laut war beim grinden.
Ever had a hard time sleeping because skating was so good that day? Completely wasted but the head does not stop skating? I had this several times and even at 44 it still happens. Just recently so after Stuttgart, I could not close an eye until 2 at night because the concrete was so smooth and the coping was so nice and loud when grinding.
Markus Suchanek, grind (chrchrchrchr!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Oder bei unserem Besuch in Ulm, früh morgens, Skatepark grade fertig geworden und kein Skater da außer uns
Or while visiting Ulm, early in the morning, the park just finished and not a skater in sight except us.

Sogar die einfachsten moves sind dann ein Erlebnis. Fakie rock.
Even the easiest moves are exciting then. Fakie rock.

Ich scheine dabei nicht alleine zu sein. Aus dem Bucky Lasek Interview auf Concrete Disciples über seinen neuen Bowl im Garten:
It seems like I am not alone with this. From the Bucky Lasek interview on Concrete Disciples about his new bowl in his backyard:
" CD: What's the best and/or funniest reaction you've gotten out of someone who sees it for the first time?
BUCKY: Well, I've gotten a mix. I think the funniest reaction was when Kevin Staab showed up. He couldn't stop smiling about it. He said it was something he'd always dreamed of. He also told me the next day that he had a hard time sleeping because he couldn't stop thinking about it. HAHA "
