Skateboarding Memes!

I found these ones on the net. I don't like memes, but these ones really made laugh. Let's check of they work on you guys.

Pic of the Day: Skating on the Roof

Hi there Ridetimers, for today we have prepared a compilation of a serie of black&white pictures that represents how high can skateboarders take a ride. Skateboarding on concrete seems not to be enough for these riders, for that reason they decide to take it to the next level, which is "roof skating". From clasical American churches to the most innovative and post-modernist  architectural structures, skating has been taken to levels that haven't seen before. Enjoy!

Riding over a church seems to be fun for this rider, as you can see ramps can be found at the weirdest places.

Natural quater pipe? Yes, indeed the architect was probably thinking on it

A skatepark on a roof, rough ride though.

Pics: Worst Skate Spots Ever

Throughout all my personal experience as an skateboarder, I have seen lots of horrible skateboarding spots. Anyway, the ones that you are about to presence go beyond the limits, getting into useless boxes that look incredible bad, and don't work at all. Though these ramps don't provide their function propperly, they have won a space on RideTime! as the worst skateboarding spots ever. Take a look and make your own opinion.

quite perfect for boardslides? come on guys, what is this? looks like a funbox ramp stair set. Weird.

A masterpiece of skateboarding engineering, designed for anti-gravitational routines
Prepared for a bail? No way dude, this is the best transfer I've ever seen!
No words, anyway it is quite rideable.

Record Guinnes: World's Longest Skateboard

WHO: Moshe Arazi / Aaron Lyon / David Micley
WHAT: 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in)
WHERE: Newton, Massachusetts, USA
WHEN: 2005

It seems that these guys were a little bit bored, anyway, they won a record Guinness and became known all around the world. This board is called the "Foundation board" and for some strange reason, it hasn't been recognized in the official Guinness' website.

Skate and Girls: The Best Female Skaters

Sometimes people think that girls are only atractive by the outside, but I have to clarify that they are all wrong. There are lots of pro skatergirls out there, that this post won't be enough to show them all. For that reason, I prepared a little comp with the videos of the best women skateboarders of the world, from some old-school sucha as Elissa Steamer, to Leticia Bufoni, the current X Games Street Skateboarding gold medalist. After checking the pics you will realize how tough this girls can be, which ones sometimes can be way more motivated that even some male pro riders.

Worldwide Guiness records are beaten day by day, from the world's strongest women alive to things that I'm not able to write about on this blog (just use your imagination).Today we remember Rob Dyrdek's record performed in 2009, which was the largest skateboard ever built. There have been some other tries, but Dyrdek was the one that really got the big prize!

Fueled by Rob's skate company, Alien Workshop, history was made as well as a lot of accidents,laughter and crazyness!

Check out the pics of Dyrdek's creation:
