Has it really come to this, Laguna Beach? I just received a voicemail asking if I would join in during the Patriots Day Parade and ride a skateboard in support of skateboarding not being banned. Yes, of course I will. Or I would, if I wasn't already riding in the parade as Athlete of the Year.
Don't we have enough items and or activities banned in Laguna Beach? Now you want to add skateboarding. From my understanding, these kids that enjoy and love skateboarding have not only been working with parents and the city in setting forth adequate safety measures but also have been following the recommendations of the Parking, Traffic and Circulation Committee in adjusting their behavior and safety gear to what has been recommended to them.
You set a standard for these kids to follow and for the most part I haven't heard anything to the contrary — other than a few residents that have put up signs protesting this. I'm surprised that private citizens putting up their own signs isn't illegal.
