720 - Only the Best 80s Arcade Skateboard Game Ever!

I posted about this game years ago on here. I have great childhood memories dumping all my quarters into this game only to have those darn bees get me every time! :) Well, I found this picture while visiting Pretty cool seeing cab back in front of a 720° arcade machine in 2014...apparently the earlier photo was from an 80s advertisement for the game.

I had no idea Cab was in Ads for 720° . Also, apparently in March of 2015, they built a Bones Brigade edition of 720° which looks pretty awesome. Check out the photos here

Nowadays I get my 720° kicks by using the arcade emulator MAME.  It's pretty awesome and works well with a Xbox 360 controller plugged into my PC.  If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend googling Mame and 720° Mame Rom and give it a try!  Maybe oneday I'll get an arcade cabinet.

Mike V RealStreet Extras Edit and Extended Cut

I get stoked every time I watch Mike V skate....he tears it up in this extra's reel from his Real Street part. I love his aggressive style. I'll post the Real Street Part below... 

Skate Inspiration for Heavier Skaters

I'm starting to feel like when I changed my blog name from NoComplyNews to StillSkateboarding, maybe I should have named it IwishIwasStillSkateboarding or maybe StillNotSkateboarding...HA!  I still love skateboarding...I watch it on TV and online whenever I get the chance, I visit every freakin day.  My mind is always looking at painted curbs and ledges and slopes at the end of a sidewalk as a skateboarder would and I'm always imagining that I'm skating them, yet my skateboard stays in my trunk 99.9% of the time.  I've taken it out on occasion when I get to my second job just to cruise around the parking lot to remember what it feels like to have this wooden oasis with 4 wheels at my feet again, but I feel so out of shape because well....I am.  I'm back to my heaviest weight at 220 lbs for a 5 foot 7 guy and when I try to do any tricks where I leave the ground, it feels like a bowling ball is in my gut tugging it down when I land and I find it much harder to get that upward trajectory going when your heavier.  Anyways, enough of my whining...I stumbled upon this video today of hebeb394 and was floored by this 330lb skater ripping the park up.  Apparently I just need to shut up and skate! :)
