OMG not at all. It's about pushing you limits to the edge, It's about pulling off a trick that makes everybody go ahhhhhhhhh!Originally posted by AVE
hey, if you've skated for 18 years, you should know that skating and causing trouble go hand in hand.
thats all i did when i was a kid.
good times indeed
well its just logical. Whats the difference between some guy on a bike and some guy on a board? or playing the guitar? etc etcOriginally posted by Eccentric (LRG)
I grew up in the downtown core when most of the housing projects where being built so I had my fair share of places to go and wacked stunts to try.Originally posted by basic
If you've been skating for 18 years surely you remember kids breaking into backyard bowls and skating illegaly - you know, the stuff with which modern skateboarding was built on?
Yeah my dog looks at me the same way. Like I just don't make sense. All I was saying was when passing I guess you and your friends it looked more like they were trying to start trouble or at least a commotion then they were about skating hard.Originally posted by jungleboy
your just not making sense...last night a bunch of skaters got together and skated...what exactly is stirring things up anyways, you've mentioned it like twice...as far as I know aside from rail or ledge damage there was zero property destruction or public drinking or any other assorted silliness but you're convinced that last night was somehow different from when you skated...

Guys I'm not putting skaters down at all I'm just saying that there's a difference between going out and skating and having a good time with your friends and meeting new people then there is with a bunch of people doing it just to stir things up.

Who the hell cares what some random alias on a message board has to say about "what it's all about".
And what the crap is a "wacked stunt". My mom sounds less awkward describing skating then you.
Just shush and go back to posting under the name you usually use. You're not even being mildly amusing.
are you saying that you have a problem wth this? well if so why don't you also join the police task force that goes around the city covering over graffitti art, Big brother, because we wouldn't want to have any subversive sub-culture, we wouldn't want a city with character...in any case if the city would follow Vancouver's lead and make more skateparks, that are accessible the said destruction wouldn't happen so much... in any case I'd rather have kids out skating than sitting at home all day and night playing computer games and watching t.v.Originally posted by el presidente Highsteppa
If they're wallriding, railsliding, grinding or otherwise using the buildings or monuments around them, it's destruction of property.
you're absolutely correct, no one should take any chances, extreme sports should be banned for the threat to the state that they are, while we're at it wouldn't it be better if everyone was forced to dress the same and beinterested int he same activites as well...who are you tpo say because a kid falls and cracks his head skating it's stupidness. besides what if the kid can't afford to buy a helmet. you obviously don't know so I'm going to inform you, decent helmets run anywhere between one and three hundred bucks.Originally posted by Littlest Hobo
Not to mention, when one of them cracks their skull because they aren't wearing a helmet, society says I should help them even though they are being stupid.
