Can we just talk for a moment about skateboarders?

Seriously fuck these idiots. This shit should be illegal.
can we just speak for a minute about how much a a nonce you are, street skating a park skating are completely different things. if people get gobby to them for doing something they enjoy what do you expect
>>738995897 what if your hobby was shooting out car windows with an airsoft gun? Great you are having fun with your hobby does that mean that everyone else should have to just sit there and deal with your shit?
Also I have plenty of friends doing actual sports in school (vice captain of my lacrosse team) without endangering and inconveniencing those around me. The only kids at my school who skate are losers who have no other interesting qualities and do it because they need attention.
Skaters between about ages 10 and 40 use the school courtyard half a block from my house. They're noisy at times, especially summer. The concrete was made specifically to be somewhat useful to skaters, as were some sloping steel railings. I don't think anyone talked very openly about it, but it's just sort of understood that skaters having a place to be and shoot their HD video or whatever is better than turning to a darker path. There's zero vandalism to the school while skaters are around. Little kids aren't intimidated by them, and often ride their little bikes around in the same area. It's really not a big deal, just a minor annoyance, and very rare for some noob to show up and make a racket past about 11pm. Maybe I just live in a nice city...
You must live in retardistan or something. North Jersey skaters are cool guys. Most that I know gladly go to the skate parks or build their own shit at home. A fair amount are pretty into physics and the likes because of its heavy relation to the activity... unlike, y'know.. lacrosse..
>>738996876 Yeah i'm of 'this' generation of skaters, im 19 and pretty punk in image. The sudden skate-nigger trend is irritating as fuck when i'm at a skatepark and some faggot in cameo jeans and a string vest shows up on a penny board playing some fucking rap on his phone and lighting a J on the half pipe
>>738995550 >use public spaces for an activity that is dangerous to them and those around them >destroy public and private property in the process >fight back saying b-but we need a place to enjoy our hobby too! Skateboarding is basically the only sport that requires any balls or creativity. Rather than run around in circles on a grass field, skaters create their play field out of the terrain of their town or city.
>build skateparks and terrain specifically designed for them to use freely - at no cost to them >skateboarders shun the parks, claiming real skateboarders only do it on the 'streets' Skate parks are for 8 year old kids on razor scooters. If you try to ride a skateboard through one, you will crash into one of those little faggots and end up fighting their parents.
>continue to harass and inconvenience others >continue to endanger others >harass the people who are hired to keep public spaces safe for everyone and glorify the behavior on instagram etc While none of this is true, I wish it was, just to piss off pathetic faggots like you.
>>738997221 I'm sorry for you. You seem chill. Unfortunately those douchebags are the ones running around leaving negative impressions on everyone around them while you are happily skating in your park.
>>738997652 Cheers, it's honestly a total nightmare. I street skate when I get chance but tend to go for quiet back streets where i'm unlikely to get ran the fuck over. That or store carparks when the stores are closed, you now the multi storey ones? It just means i'm out the way of bad drivers and can't fuck up and ride into someone. Skating is going to die if it doesn't go back to its roots i swear. Even early 2000 pop-punk skating would be better than jay-z loving 'look at my swag', nike wearing twats
>>738996843 Whatever. I don't skate. Did for commuting for a few years in my 20's, but got bored of falling down every time I hit a rock. In a 'perfect' world for skateboarding there'd be no rocks on roads. Not gonna happen, and I've only got the one body to work with, so...
As for older guys skating, do you really care? Why? What kind of loser would give a flying fuck what they do? I'm annoyed by professional sports and all the kid stuff tailored to groom kids into dreamers who aspire to pro athlete salaries, because it's a massive scam designed to make fortunes for a few team owners and the TV empires. Giant scam. Team sports used to be community based. Now they're awful. Fuck that shit.
Skaters don't hurt anybody, losers hurt people. Losers may skate, but losers also drive, ride motorcycles, ride bicycles, walk, parachute, whatever the fuck. Gimme a goddamned break.
>>738997503 >While none of this is true, I wish it was, just to piss off pathetic faggots like you.
Oh come on you dont honestly believe this shit. Even the most cursory search through youtube and instagram would yield plenty of results with skaters fighting security guards and police officers for literally no fucking reason
>using creativity as an excuse for destruction of property
Why dont i get a few buckets of paint and throw it on cars in a local parking lot. Im an artist right!?? Creativity!
You dont need to be tresspassing on private property for you to be creative. Rodney mullen is the most creative skater of all time and you wont find him out at your local street spots.
Inb4 it doesnt destroy property. Bullshit. You know full well it does. And I'm not even talking about when one of you jackasses loses a board and sends it flying into the nearest car parked on the curb.
>>738998373 Cars will be severely limited for private use by 2040, and outright illegal by 2070. If we're all still around to care. So 'get a car pussy' seems a little bit nihilist, to say the least, and one might easily conjecture there's a more direct physiological element to your need to express yourself through larger, heavier hardware... small hands perhaps?
>>738995550 They do damage property. It was pretty damn fun when I was a kid. How much do you seriously care about the paint on a handrail or ledge? Kids will be pricks no matter what they do for a hobby
>>738998765 serial killers are happy murdering people. Would you defend their right to do so? Or would you admit that when the freedoms of one man infringe upon the rights and happiness of another, laws and regulations have to be set in place to limit these freedoms to a degree?
i grew up in the north of England in a town with almost no skateboarders, but i was one of the few
let me tell you a bit about skateparks in that area
near where i lived they built us a skatepark, presumably to keep skaters off the streets etc. Pic related; it's the exact skatepark in Cleckheaton
Despite the best efforts and intentions of the council in providing us with this skatepark, it was/is utterly unusable. You see at the left side of the picture there is a fence? Well on the other side of that fence (off camera) is a children's play area. Whenever there were a couple of skaters in the skatepark, all the 5 y/os from over the fence wanted to come in the skatepark and run up and down the ramps this made skating very difficult and actually dangerous for the kids and the skaters. When i told their parents to take their children out of the skatepark, they just argued with me
You see how the park is surrounded entirely by fields? Instead of playing football on the grass, they would set up football games in between the ramps and play there.
idk what it's like in North America cos i don't skate any more (even though i live in Canada now) but in Bradford, in the UK, if people don't want skaters skating in public they should keep their unrestrained children out of our skatepark
>>738998993 >comparing skateboarding to serial killing Nigger, please.
>Or would you admit that when the freedoms of one man infringe upon the rights and happiness of another, laws and regulations have to be set in place to limit these freedoms to a degree? I do agree with the above, I just don't agree that skateboarding "infringes upon the rights and happiness of another." And if it does, deal with it on your own, you pathetic cuck. We have enough bullshit laws and ticket-able offenses.
I'm sorry to say you seem to be a bit of a faggot. Quite frankly, you sound like a triggered snowflake who can't handle anything outside of your comfort zone.
>>738995550 As a skateboarder myself ask me anything and I will try to answer it to the best of my abilities, its a pretty fickle scene so I dont expect a lot of you to understand it but go ahead and ask away.
>>739000420 theres a lot more that can talk big before they can hit big, but theres some people at my park that could drop Mayweather with one hit. Its very regional in my opinion, most skaters dont even like echother, and they're doing the same sport. (figuratively speaking of course)
>>739000631 >And you sound like an underage prick who takes contrary beliefs as a personal attack and can only respond with insults
Oh the irony.... Skating is pretty great in my opinion, great way to blow off steam and keep otherwise bad kids at least mildly entertained. Plus pros like Daewon Song and Mullen actually push the sport creatively, which is hard to find in pretty much any other sport where rules dictate exactly how you play and eventually turn them into industries of bullshit records and statistics, the entire point of sport is leisure, and if you can do something new with it without the huge investments of other big sports then it sounds fine to me.
Why do none of you wear helmets? Is it a fashion statement or what? I can only assume its a social thing right? Since it makes no sense not to.
This bothers me more than anything. Watching skaters on youtube go and hit a 20 stair with no helmet only to nearly kill themselves for no reason baffles me. Do you not realize that there are people in your life who care greatly about your health and hapiness? Even if you dont value your life dont you think you owe it to the people who care about you to at least take care of yourself? Or perhaps skaters have the mentality of 'that wont happen to me'
Please try to take care of yourself better and be safe doing what you enjoy.
>>739001441 Well for one, you get hot, like really hot. Second, it's more of personal pride thing, always wearing a helmet is like saying you have no faith in your own ability to do something without fucking it up.
Pros like Aaron Homoki scare the shit out of me even as someone who skates, but for flatground stuff and parks, you look like you just started and have no confidence in muscle memory
>>739001750 I understand that for flatground stuff that is relatively low risk. But I live in San Fransisco, where skaters regularly try to bomb insane hills with no helmet or anything, and have seen some pretty gnarly injuries. It makes no sense to me.
>>739001441 Oh most definitely it stems from "that wont happen to me". It can also be very distracting because of the constant body motion, it ends up rattling on top of your head a lot. and your head gets very sweaty very fast. Imagine sprinting nonstop for 8 hours in 100 degree weather with 10 beanies on your head, thats kind of what it feels like. A lot of what skaters do that make them "look" like a fashion statement they actually do becuase its more comfortable not becuase its "cool". Most skater wear shoe laces as belts instead of an actual belt becuase when you bendover to do a trick the metal part of the belt digs into your skin. So most of a skater fashion is out of whats comfortable to them. And a helmet can get very uncomfortable overtime. But we always try to be our safest its not like we're TRYING to hurt ourselves out here lol, hope I cleared that up!
>>738995550 I'm with you. I fucming hate these faggots. All they do is smoke fucking weed, loiter, vandalize shit and jump security guards for doing their job. Or god forbid they're minors. They push people over the edge and start playing the legal card when they get rocked by some dudes old-man-strength punch. Not that there is much difference between under age skaters and the dipshits in their 30s. They're all fucking scum.
>>739001750 Too hot? Fuck that. I used to compete in BMX then mountain bikes, fairly high level in both, and we ALWAYS wore lids, period. Had my head smacked more than a few times when some gonzo whacked into me or I just didn't quite make a turn or whatever. Smashed a few helmets. Brain's still doing just fine. A bit of sweat never bothered me at all. What bothers me about helmets is how many cyclists don't wear the things, same for skaters. It's pathetic. Like these people have either zero imagination for what can happen in a crash, or zero respect for their own brain function, or more likely both.
>>739003291 That sounds like such a skater insult. >doesn't like what i like >better call him gay >no wait, call him gay in a way that includes comical imagry >man i'm a strait genius, dawg! >wish i had 5 bucks for a sack, man.
tbh I didn't like him, more of a Cheese and Crackers type of person, but that's me
>>739004364 Typically you don't come out of a starting gate crammed next to a bunch of other people when you're trying to film a trick though. You're wearing pads because it's a competitive sport and you have competition that wants you fall if necessary, and because the sponsors of any comp encourage it so avoid being connected with a ton of injuries.
>A bit of sweat never bothered me at all I do not care in any way about this at all, cool?
>>739004758 weeds overrated, does anyone even smoke fucking weed anymore? What insult ?I havent even insulted you? and you seem to be taking what I say to heart, this is 4chan calm down a bit you seem mad at the world.
>>739005320 >you squat in cucumber fields. If that's not supposed to be an insult, then tell me what it's supposed to be. Also "I havent even insulted you?" That coupled with the rest of your shitty writing leads me to believe you're 16 or younger.
>>739006802 Everything on 4chan is banter, 'kiddo.' I'm also on a phone dipshit. Thats no excuse. But since i'm on a phone i do know that that improperly placed question mark was on purpose. Epic sk8er ruse, dipshit.
>>739008589 You might. Since you're a skater i kinda doubt it, but i'm not exactly in a high income bracket. Ranch hands don't make much, but i don't see how the money you make detemines how shitty you are as a person. Especially since you don't seem to respect public ordinance on skate boarding, and you seem to be just fine with shitting on students and workers.
Skaters are basically niggers. Think about it: >aimless young male wasting their lives and inconveniencing others in the process >belligerent, wannabe tough-guys who run from any head-on fight and only engage anyone when they have superior numbers and the opportunity to sucker punch >frequently rely on their boards as thrown weapons or as bludgeons, but if you take their boards or throw them they go into a literal autistic rage
Basically, the same people who become gangbanger niggers, or who become wigger trailer park garbage, instead become skater punks if they're from the suburbs.
Same cancer. Take an angry black kid from the ghetto and put them in the suburbs and they lose the crip colors and buy a skateboard. Take an angry skaterboi cunt and put him in the ghetto and he becomes a wigger. It's all just shit-for-brains angsty teens burning off excess puberty hormones on pointless risks and cheap thrills.
>>739009242 Im not the same guy you're talking to but I thought I'd interject, I'll have to agree with you on all of that except my friends and I try to stay out of the way when skating in public and we know its disrespectful to not listen to security guards when they tell you to leave but try to imagine working on an essay for 3 hours and some guy comes up and shuts off your computer, its quite frustrating.
>>738999006 >When i told their parents to take their children out of the skatepark, they just argued with me Oh shit, kids being somewhere they aren't supposed to be and causing annoyance. Those kids must have been future skaters.
>>739009959 "Yeah, sure, whatever man" is the "muh dick" of skaterbois. When you confront a gangbanger with reality they start off on the "muthafugga foget yu". When you do it to a skater they clam up the same way and start with the fake sarcasm: "Yeah dude, totally. *eyeroll*"
>>739009782 Woah, what guy comes up and shut off your comp? Also if what you're saying about public skating and having respect for those around you, and authority is true, well then dude, i'm with you, it's this other asshole i'm talking to, here. That is the usual skater demeanor. That's what everyone expects from skaters. Sorry they're soiling your hobby.
>>739009242 dude fuck you, you have to know a thing for at least arguing that kind of bullsit, and i dont know if ranch persons know how to read cause i said i was a skater i now am a motorcyclist who's bike expensier than your car, why? i dont give a fuck cause i a high amount of pay taxes, i do my job as a "good citizen" gov has to do their job that's their problem, they have to serve us, skaters incluided
>>739010504 Im using the computar and essay as a simile, the security guard telling you to leave while filming for a video is just as annoying as someone shutting of your Computer and losing all of your progress, some people are out there trying to film for there part so they can get sponsored and it can be aggravating when soneone tells you to leave, yeah its annoying but there's not much you can do about it, they're just doing their job so I respect them enough to leave.
>>738995550 >2 year ago >walking out of 7/11 >parking lot >drunk skater fall >wall_ride.bmp >boom ankle shot >fat dude >lay in back of my van >wont move >we drag guy off to side >drunk skater yell at me >yell at me? >he in back of van now >sorry to fat guy >look in mirror no one >creep out hear scream >i'm on his drunken foot >pounding on van >oops gas to get off >tire creep up to ankle >more screaming >gas more >felt like a speed bump >drunk skater is on ground screaming >mfw fat korean - drunk skater - me all look at each other as i drive off
>>739010637 Lol, he's getting so mad that the quality of his writing is degrading, but i'll do my best. Working on a ranch doesn't mean i automatically don't know what i'm talking about. I know you're a skater, otherwise you wouldn't type like a buttmad highschooler The fact that you're a motorcyclist now only increases your irate dipshit factor, since you probably drive like an asshole, going 30mph(at a minimum) faster than the flow of traffic, and weave between lanes to get to the front of stop lights, like a fucking teenager, with your faggot buddies. And while you're doing all this daredevil dipshitery you somehow muster ip the audacity to lecture us all on how we need to be aware of bikers cause you don't feel safe while you're being reckless and obnoxious. Jesus, skaters are like an evolution of bikers. Self righteous, entitled assholes, who play rough with their toys to piss off the adults thx for the epiphany, nastrodumbass.
You don't pay taxes or work at all. Prove me wrong.
The government does their job by keeping faggots like you in check.
you wildcattin kids & risky business taking risks, because they are young energetic and stupid require direction like it or not,
yall deserve society making an outlet for your raging youthful hormones,some rules gotta be there, if you try extra hard you will find someplace where the even wilder bunch do this risky business,, it;s your life
>>739012598 im actually a nurse who's working his ass off to get a phd you anons are so stereotyping? you assume too much right there and yes i proudly pay taxes, and no i do know how they feel about their hobbie and i know i can get along with it as far they dont harm me
>>738997503 you have some good points but >continue to harass and inconvenience others While most skaters around here (relatively nice area) are normal human beings with common decency theres a vast population of skaters that are complete faglords with little to no respect for anything, and im pretty sure it isn't just my area either. Dangerous? No, but a good ~35% of them are insufferable hormonal teens and the rest are pretty alright if you talk to them, they're eager to talk about their boards n shit. You realize they're afraid of being immediately grouped in with the other fags swerving in front of mothers with strollers and tagging up schools and starting fights over dumb shit cause they wanna achieve maximum edge. But still, the rest are generally cool, as far as sports go skaters definitely have a deserved rep tho.
>I pay taxes >I skate local, public parks >I also skate streets and other public spots >Been injured both in parks and in public, never sued, dealt with my injuries and frustration privately >Skating is an amazing rush and an excellent way to stay fit and healthy >Being around other skaters for the most part is fun and welcoming. Opens many doors if you have the balls to try and learn
Why does this bother you so much OP? You mad at someone having more fun than you with the concrete hand they're dealt?
>>738999006 this is a common plight I hear, aggressive soccer mom types with the local sheriff on their speed dial converting skate parks to the equivalent of a tiny tots wading pool, because nothing is more important that her precious little 5year old
I'm fine with vert style skaters, but I can't stand street skaters.Theyre usually teenagers who have that "I own this street" mentality. They set up in front of crowded areas and places of business because they know it's annoying and they want attention, thinking their barely executable pop shuvits (because they're all shit at what they do) are gonna get them mad puss. There's no way to be a cool skateboarder unless you're some Rob Dyrdek/Eric Koston type shit. You just look edgy and cringe as shit. Majority of them are mindless idiots, but some still have respect for the law and have common decency to board at night or on alleyways.
>>739017742 A year ago some somali-migrant strangled a skater. He was sick of the fucks making noise outside his apartment all day long. After all, being unemployed and all it was ruining his quality of life. And you know what, even though i despise fucking nigger migrants I actually rooted for the guy.
Well, that sounds like the dude was projecting some personal shit onto the kids and just snapped on them. But I am not familiar with the incident. I have no context. They could have been being total cunts.
I'm just saying take the sport with a grain of salt, as most of the community is super enthusiastic and welcoming if you stick with it. For all you know, it might be the hobby/social circle you need. I've turned many of my friends onto the soothing nature of a good sesh after work or a long day.
Tell me, anon, you ever tried it? You own a board?
>>739018821 If the local municipality hasn't specifically banned skating on sidewalks and in streets then it's a non issue. Parents should calm down and stop thinking that anybody cares about their shitty kids.
>>739018791 >that sounds like the dude was projecting some personal shit onto the kids and just snapped on them Eh, no, he was listening to kaboom kaboom kaboom all day long until he snapped. And it's not like people havent told them to fuck off and even called the cops.
It's not uncommon to find videos of skaters making noise outside apartment buildings and filming themselves arguing with old ladies telling them to fuck off. And even if the cops arrive they just come back the next day.
>>739019587 >Actually if it was perfectly legal the cops wouldnt come when they are being a nuisance. Have you considered the possibility that they responded to a noise complaint and that skateboarding is perfectly legal?
>>739019503 >they're not doing anything technically illegal Im not holding a legal debate. I'm just telling you why most people would love to run over a fucktard longboarding down a public street, then call it an accident.
>>739019706 >would love to run over a fucktard longboarding down a public street, then call it an accident. And you people wonder why nobody takes you seriously when you complain about those damn kids and their skateboards.
>>739019909 Ive seen plenty of videos and met people who tried to reason with them. I don't even try to talk to the shitheads and just call the cops outright when I hear them nearby. I'm also a fan of cobblestones.
>>739020208 My parents bought me a skateboard when I was 11 and I used it to move furniture the next time we moved, then sold it at a yard sale for a dollar. All these people talking shit about kids skating and calling police on kids being kids smacks of idiots with nothing better to do with their time.
Post fuckin one. I own all the CKY vids and I think that is about the basement when it comes to shit like that. Those guys are just cunts who happen to hang with a 4/10 early 00s pro. But thats like such a minor Iota of the community as a whole.
>>739020559 If they are violating noise ordinances by being louder than the local municipality permits (which is measurable in a scientific manner) then you are right. If not then you're just wasting the cops time for stupid shit.
>>738995550 Bearly destroy property depending on the person (different skaters have different morals -_-) parks are filled with 5 y.o on scooters and there mums scream at you if you try to actually skate. Skaters will never harass anyone unless harassed if harassed by a security then they will either leave and comeback later or just ignore the mm because they have literally no power (depending on how security reacts for example if they try take your board or act like a big man their gunna get what's coming to them tbh) endanger people lol what a fucking neckbeard if your walking on a sidewalk your in danger by multiple things right now your in danger of getting shocked very few people have died skating and the ones that have were obviously skating way above there skill level get a grip on life and take up a hobby and no a hobby is not taking creep shots of your sister or mom
>>739021031 If the local municipality has banned it on sidewalks or streets or they are on private property (that YOU own and have the legal authority to tell them to leave) then you are correct. Otherwise you are wasting yours and the cops time. Good job letting a bunch of kids show how retarded you are.
>>738995550 BACKGROUND: >20 y/o >skateboarder for 12 years >worked at Skatepark Of Tampa and some local skateshops for the past 5 years
Well, not all of us are assholes lmfao. Personally, I don't give a lot of people shit when I street skate and try to keep to myself and my friends most of the time. HOWEVER, I do have some friends that go out of their way to fuck with people when they skate.
Idk guys, it's the same shit with every group of people. You can't just generalize everyone based off minimal experiences with them.
Not to be crass, but what the fuck did I just watch?
I dont speak Eurogib. But from your evidence: >kids skating >not being obnoxious. But not being savory. >Lady starts shit >Lays hands first >Kids continue >Cops settle it
Where's the issue? It ran its course the way everyone else here's been saying. Its one grumpy cunt starting shit and putting hands on people and the cops show up. Thats it. Shes the asshole there by instigating and not just asking them to be quiet or not skate at certain times...
>>739008163 Growing up = getting a fat wife and shitty 40hour job and shitty kids with shit car and beer gut
Adult that never grew up = fit asf, part time 20hour job,has different girl every week , doesn't need possessions to feel superior , not a cuck , actually understand s that you have one life and if you spend it working and doing something you hate its a waste.
I'm 18 and just quit 40hour job have sick asf BMW gunna sell because realized no one cares if I'm rich or poor they just care about how they present them self have sexy ass gf and gun na spend next couple weeks getting high jamming Xbox and getting sucked off then I'll find another job to slave away at to buy more weed then quit and repeat life is just in your head bro age isn't shit
>>739021802 >pedestrian Might have been the wrong word but in most places a car collision against anything not a car is pretty much automatically the drivers fault. If a skater jumps out in front of you then it becomes an issue of you obviously going too fast for local conditions and not being mindful of those around you. Don't do something stupid just because you're stupid.
>And if you don't see the issue with the kid getting in her face She started it and threw hands first. Self defence, son. He has rights too. >you truly are a skater (asshole) No one said I wasn't either. But when I skate, I do it respectfully because of uptight lilly shits like you. Kill em with kindness.
>>739022472 If they're tresspassing then yes but you seem to be butthurt about the idea of kids skating anywhere at all. Were you not cool enough to be a skater kid when you were young? Did your HS crush give a bj to the meanie skater kid from down the street?
I fail to see any damage skateboarders have done to public space. If you're referring to when they fuck up and land face first in a garden wrecking it, that's them fucking up. And skateboard parks are usually reserved for teens or tweens.
>Wheels >Make it a vehicle >on a place where motor vehicles go
Yeah not at all.
They actually just rewrote local legislature in the town I work in about this EXACT issue. >Bikes are a vehicle as they MUST occupy a vehicle lane (shoulder is advised but not encouraged as there are bridges and narrow roads with street parking) and are not allowed on sidewalks >Also no helmet/No lights (at night) = 100$ fines apiece.
>Skateboards exist as their own entity and are entitled to both sidewalk and road >No helmet or Lights needed, as they do not obstruct the flow of traffic at that speed
i don't care what skateboarders do. If they are ever a problem, just solve it ruthlessly in a legal fashion. Otherwise get over the fact that kids do stupid shit and it only makes your financial future better if they are dead or debilitated.
>>739022834 wwe is sports entertainment, not a sport egaming is just gaming, just because they call themselves an esport doesnt make them a sport kiddo xgames? we are talking about skateboarding, dont drag others into this, man the fuck up
Let's just say I was on a skateboard way before Tony Hawk for comparison's sake. Sometime around twenty-plus years ago the skate culture began to embrace an aesthetic that grew out of (to name a few) Big Brother magazine /Jackass and SoCal punk nihilism. It was pretty fresh (at the time) sort of interesting and "edgy" but it was basically sophomoric, aggressive and appealed to the baser instincts of teenage white boys to the exclusion of any "outsiders." A lot of interesting things came out of that culture but it also appealed to an audience who picked up on the neanderthal qualities without appreciating the irony. Same thing happened when punk evolved into various stratas that eventually ended up embracing the same dumb-jock bro culture that it was originally intended to mock.
Ive never been an asshole to someone while skating. Well at least not to anyone thats asked me to leave a spot or knock it off.
furthermore why would I instigate a fight with someone while riding what a cop could see as a weapon? The po po is gonna favor the person with the complaint typically. Why compound that by throwing hands first, especially when I have a heavy ass bludgeoning device with me?
Your logic is fucked because you don't like skating. Thats fine, but just know you're skewing facts into opinions because you're biased.
>>739023844 other anon had already explained it two separate times, tf you want me to tell you dumbass, I'm just going to retort the same thing the other anon said and you'll just come back with "prove it".
