Why not compare it to surfing?
Unless you're trolling. Either way your opinion sucks.
Oh god, it's you. There's always that one guy that's like you.
Everyone will be hanging out, enjoying their respective skates. Sure there's a difference but they mingle and have fun regardless. But then that one faggot always steps up, "GUIZE WE ALL KNOW LONGBOARDS AND SKATEBOARDS AREN'T THE SAME, RIGHT?" Well no shit kindred faggot do you really think? Who the fuck cares?
figured you guys would enjoy this
2nd angle. 2015 is nuts, rails like this you only used to see inline blades grind
Get the fuck outa here with that fruit-boot bullshit
>Lose one letter
Have you ever played a game of SKATE?
>Johnson, you're on the 3rd Street murder case
>Jenkins, I want you on the beat between Fifth and Sixth - muggings are on the up there
>Smith, I need you to follow up on that lead on The Masked Groper
>Gonzales, get on Youtube and look for low-level traffic violations where nobody got hurt
Does that answer your question
>60 metres per hour
How do you even measure speeds of that magnitude?
IKTF bro, put a lot of effort into skateboarding when I was a kid but was too fat and just didn't know what I was doing in general. Tony Hawk and the jews had me waste tons of allowance on skate shit
dude's just a German who has probably never seen anything like that in his whole life, never thought it possible.
He's just trying to use the mail drop-box. Idiot militant skaters like you are the reason skaters aren't welcome in chill public spots. You scare the shit out of people for no reason, then the cops come, and it gets ruined for everybody.
Right, because that's an appropriate way to use that piece of infrastructure. Pedestrians should be ready for out-of-control jackasses to jump on, over, or through anything anywhere at any time.
I'm not saying all pieces of "infrastructure" can only be used for the intention for which they are designed; non-skaters tend to overreact in situations they perceive to be dangerous, but skaters tend to have a "get out of my way when you perceive danger" attitude in response. If people had a more pragmatic attitude, that "as long as no one gets hurt, then whatever" we'd all be better off, and indeed, in germany people tend to mind their own business in public better than in America, where people often try to curb "deviant" behavior whenever they see it.
it just really makes me mad that any one person or group of people would attempt to monopolize a public space. I'm sure that skater wouldn't have started his run if he honestly thought he was going to run into that guy, and the guy wouldn't have used the mailbox if he honestly thought he was going to be hit. They both have a right to be in that space, so why are we trying to decide who shouldn't be there?
It's pretty clear that the guy using the mail box has the greater right to be there - he's using the infrastructure as it was expressly intended to be used. The skater is just there for jollies. While there's nothing wrong with that, he ought to have a little respect for people going about their daily business by not flying past the guy at head-level with great speed.
Yeah Red bull puts up some neat videos on youtube.
It's not about attempting to monopolize public space. It's about skaters needing to recognize that they do not have the right to damage public property (i.e. grinding, putting wax on everything, wrecking into shit) or interfere with standard intended use of that property. And that's ignoring the issue that most of what skaters think is "public" space is in fact privately owned. It's like an arsonist claiming people are trying to monopolize public space because he gets arrested for setting trees on fire in Central Park.
You should recognize that your behavior is merely tolerated, not expressly permissible, and act accordingly. If you minimize impact, inconvenience, and annoyance to others, people will probably keep looking the other way. But if not, there's nothing in the law that will help you if the police start arresting your asses for destruction of public property, disorderly conduct, etc.
>there is a park close by where I live
>has some skateable obstacles
>lot of people also like to run there, bike there, play football on the grass, hang around, have picnics etc. and walk their dogs
>whenever we skate there people walking their dogs complain that skating is not allowed there
>they have called the police there plenty of times
>every single time the police come there and just tell that there are no set rules for the park and that skateboarders aren't actually doing anything wrong
>the dog walkres even put up a sign there on their own that said skateboarding is not allowed
It would be nice if these responsible adults would treat you with some respect as well but apparently that privilege is only for those who aren't carrying a skateboard.
I might as well go and complain to everyone walking their dogs on the streets that it's not the "intended use of the property" and that the dogs are damaging public property.
The issue is that most people have huge attitude problems. Skating very rarely actually damages public property to any considerable extent and even then lot of skateboarders will leave if police or security guards tell them to leave.
There are cases where skateboarders aren't really considering other people when skateboarding but there are just as many causes police and pedestrians being assholes and not giving any thought to what the skateboarders want to do.
The whole "intended use" of something or thinking some people have more right to be at a public space doing something is just rotten attitude.
>there are just as many causes police and pedestrians being assholes and not giving any thought to what the skateboarders want to do.
You clearly don't get this at all. If skateboarders are putting people in a position where pedestrians have to try to figure out what the skaters are trying to do (there's a good chance that the skaters' intentions will be opaque to those not versed in the sport), the skateboarders are fucking up. If you want to do something in a public place that could potentially put a bystander's well-being at risk, the responsibility is entirely on the person doing the risky action to make sure that no second party comes to harm. 'hurp he should have seen that I was about to drop in' is victim blaming.
It's one of those purity things about the sport. Part of the sport is the mindset.
As a skateboarder I came to have respect for snowboarders, because it was tough for me, but longboarding ain't shit.
fuck everytime i see clips of him its like, mindblowing how good (& stylish..) he was. so many other people are hangers-on in skateboarding, but he managed to not only come before them, but do it better, and just give it all up at the peak. shame he gave it up to become a scieno, but damn. he really went out on top.
i wonder if he had just kept skating a tiny bit longer having some exposure in the early x-games would've helped his fame like it did for hawk & the others. i feel like he could've been alot bigger than just mallrats & Earl if he hadn't sold out to become a scieno... but at the same time in his era, there were no million dollar redbull/nike contracts yet to grab :( feel bad for him kind of.
Say that to one of these guys >>872183 >>872202 and you would probably get your shit kicked in
Keep thinking whatever you do is "cooler", because skating, skateboarding, bmx, scooters, or whatever, is done for the fun and enjoyment and not for looking cool or being acceptable to others. If you do things just to up your appearances or to gain acceptance from others, then you are just some run-of-the-mill normalfag poser.
heres some skateboarding in anime. its from K - Return of Kings , but is the only 10 seconds of skating in the whole series. Pretty cool effect, looks like a rotoscoped skate 3 line maybe.
i wonder if there are any other instances of skating in anime but i can't actually think of any.
the subtitles were hardcoded, sorry. i like how they drew him wearing sk8-his
>posts a webm to demonstrate a point
>all replies indicate his point was not taken
you are just threatening with force. That's your whole argument. "Behave a certain way or else...". What is this attitude reminding you and how does it make you feel?
>your behavior is merely tolerated, not expressly permissible
do you have a disability? did a skateboarder bully you when you were a child? Are you 12?
Also, do you even know what happened in the instance from which your posted recorded excerpt is?
agreed. theres this girl who comes to our skatepark & rides 4-wheel-skates... like roller-rink type, not the inlines... and its suprising how much cooler/better it looks. shes pretty damn good too, can do inverts & airs.
that being said theres only like... two guys left who ever come through on rollerblades. both are stupid fucking good at it, but it still looks corny to me :\ even though their skills are pretty impressive but it only takes seeing them more than twice to notice they do the same stuff over & over as well
interestingly the inline-skate is a 18th century invention.... but not one ever used it until they invented the "safety skate" (roller-rink type) in the early 20th century lmao... never been liked anywhere throughout history :P
Got a job a few months ago to install a bunch of self tapping bolts all the way down a set of hand rails, the guy had me screw them in with a dab of thread locking compound on so they will never come out, I had just put my shit away when a big group of skaters rolled up, man were they ever pissed when they saw those bolts on there, luckily they never noticed me or it could have gotten ugly.
Probably, but you'd make so much noise doing it that someone would call the cops, also as I understand it the cops will chase you off for skating on private property but removing the studs would be destruction of private property and that is a whole other ball game.
I've told the guy that if the studs don't cut it then I can weld them on there, he just didn't want to pay the extra, I may be going back there soon to add some more studs to a low wall they've been sliding along, I love skating but these guys are ruining this guys peace and quiet, also some of them have threatened him when he asked them to move along, the guy is like 65 or older, I kind of feel for him.
