I miss INFINITY Mirrors from then which was numerous
and wierd and new furniture designs, thanks to 2001
sitting in silence

Then the furriness of carpets back then. And lava lamps galore, more fashionable lights than ever before.

And metal and real cars that withstood impact.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 86677520


skating was a side gig, but also highly profitable and eventually garnered alot of attention and created some good clothing.

Back then though the price point was something Mom and Dad could afford, so it was easily available to the masses.

Skaters were hated by the police and Adults though...

REMEBER all the "NO SKATEBOARDING" signs?

Funny Shit.

Now we built them a super nice park with a ton of features, bathrooms, snack shop, water fountains...

you'd buy two different colored pairs and mismatch them for maximum coolness.

While at the time you could some select brands at places like...JC Pennys, Miller's Outpost...

I begged my Mom to take me up and down PCH and hit up all the surf shops.

Pick up some clothes and some Mr Zogs sex wax stickers!?! No Way! (had to explain to mom, the sex part was ALL marketing..it was just cool so I needed some for my boards LOL)

Had Christmas Dinner at the Charthouse today. Got Nostalgic driving by Hansens, Swamis, the Yellow Tea house, lots of good memories. So much has changed, but alot of iconic places are still around. Even Lou's records...which i dont think is there anymore but the sign is...

Damn we had it good back then.

I would do this and learned a technique from an older surfer...basically melting candlewax and adding sand, reforming into a candle and then lighting the candle and letting the wax drip onto the board and providing little bumps for traction.

If you wanted to get fancy, you could even pull iron out of the sand with a magnet and use that, so all your drips were a black color and looked super cool.

You are experiencing a Mandela Effect.

Its always been Hobie...Hobie Cat..Hobie Catamaran.

But maybe your reality was different.

Didn’t really wear most of it - I was too busy wanting my mom to buy me Guess and Esprit outfits - but I definitely remember Gotcha, Rip Curl, O’Neill, T&C. I grew up living right by the beach and never even thought about how lucky I was at the time…spending summers at the local beaches…so fun! I did have a couple Hobie stores near me and would once in a while shop there, along with a Jacks Surf Shop, but mostly I’d beg my mom to go the mall :)

Blacks wrecked me...

We heard there were big waves and went....

I was no slouch back then...played varsity water polo, and did swim team in HS , surfed 3-4 times a week...

Waves kept pounding me and I actually, for the first time in my life said...I cant handle this water...

Luckily (or unluckily), I took a dive off a wave and my board snapped, so I called it a day.

Always remember that experience, and all my friends too bailed out and quit surfing that day after a few attempts.

Really needed a longer board as well that day, would have helped.
