Hoodies & Longboarding

So I recently learned how to Longboard. Go me! In fact, I went around my entire apartment complex today w/out falling once!  It's approximately 0.5mi all the way around, so I probably burned 100+ calories. Woo hoo! I would've gone longer but my board foot was majorly cramping and I was sweating like a mutha and I was only on lunch. I was really nervous when I first starting learning b/c I have horrible balance, but it's actually pretty easy. For those of you who don't know what longboarding is, it's pretty much skateboarding with a much longer board and no tricks. Longboards are strictly for cruising. I feel totally cool now b/c I know how to longboard. I know, I'm a dork like that. So now that...ahem...I'm a longboarder I gotta start supporting the longboarding community. So I went online to Zumiez to buy some cool skater clothes (like I mentioned above...b/c I'm a dork like that) the other day, btw I'm a hoodie freak, so I bought an Obey hoodie. I guess that's a skater brand? I mean Zumiez sells skater clothes right? Anyway, the hoodie I found that I fell in love with was like $80 freaking dollars. Um no, not paying that. So I googled the hoodie name and found it online elsewhere for like $30 something dollars and on top of that I googled promo codes for that store and got an additional percentage off making the grand total w/shipping $26! I had never even heard of the store...it was called Karmaloop or something like that. Anyway...what a steal! Going elsewhere to get a bargain is still supporting right? Lol! :)

Here's a few pics of the hoodie and a longboard just in case you're wondering what they look like:
And it even has thumb holes! :)

Here's my exact longboard. It's a Sector 9.
