The begining of the 8mm tapes!!! I found a 8mm camcorder on KSL (its like craigslst for Mormons) for $50.00. With a baby on the way I wanted to go ahead and capture all the tapes before I uploaded any. All the tapes are captured and they are awesome. The first tape is around the end of 2001. My dad bought me a canon 8mm camcorder from CompUSA for my 15th birthday. I had a good friend Keith who lived down the street and was one of the first kids I met when I moved to Raleigh from Cary. Keith was more of a sportsman. Good at any sport he played like Hockey, Soccer, and BMX. I biked with him for a couple of years and then I met Terry and Mike who lived in the neighborhood also. I remember seeing Mike do a backside powerslide and that was all it took. It looks like so much fun, I had to try it. Keith and I got a board and shared it for a while and on Christmas I got my own. I started skating with Terry, Mike, and his brother Robby. They had a mini ramp in their back yard and it was where my love for skateboarding started to blossom. Mike and Robby's cusion Timmy moved into the neighborhood and we all started skating together. Once i got a camera we had all been skating together for a year or two and Mike and Robby had stopped skating as much. We had no car yet and would get rides with Keith whenever he wanted to skate but mostly we skated to every spot.
