So all of this information is correct right? Do any of you non posers have any tips on being a real skater?

if i read this  article 25 years ago it might have turned me off trying skateboarding in fact if i was a kid today i probably would steer toward any other activity any way cause from the outside looking in, skateboarding is  pretty much redlining the wack side of the cool meter.

So if someone just got a board and is trying to learn andvyou come along and ask him to do something he can't do, you ridicule him and act like a dick bag? I'm sure whoever wrote that garbage skated better than guy the first time he stepped on a board.

If you don't want to be called a poser you guys should really support Andy Schrock's new company Revive! He is a local skater around here and a real cool and zany guy. His new company has a really COOL image and not to mention a damn good name. He is a role model to me and acts like a real skater should!!!i feel he deserves all the support he can get so if you guys could pick up some Revive product that would be awesome!

What if the person does a no comply or treflip? Is he a poser because he didn't show an Ollie?
And at which point is an Ollie really an Ollie? (I.e. there are many people around who interpret the poor attempt of an Ollie actually an Ollie).

Enough with all those Ollies...

There is no way in hell you can easily land a fingerflip airwalk off a picnic bench (unless you're quick and coordinated)."

Fuck. He knows about my stash of shoes and my pretense of having a fingerflip airwalk game... Cover blown.

The word poser brings me back to 2001, and the most accurate description is a skater who hasn't taken 2 serious slams. Slams that take you out of skating for a while. My cousin told me that when we were playing THPS bail videos on PS1

If you can't watch this video without thinking; " some of these aren't even that bad" then you are a poser.

Real skaters do hard drugs, so all you posers should get your health insurance game up so you can fail outpatient and qualify for a bed in an inpatient facility before your friends find out how big.of a pussy you are.

If you ever quit the drugs, you've earned the right to be a seasoned vet. This affords you the ability to sit on the ledge and smoke a pack and a half while telling all the posers how shitty skating has become, and make sure to throw some back in thebday shit so they know you really know what's up. Ex. John montesi never fit in with the rest of those curb bonking tail draggers on new deal, you ever heard of all that? I thought not.....

I know this is stupid cuz you can be a true skater without staying in touch with topical skate media. BUT, just by asking someone who their top 5 favorite skaters are, or what their favorite tricks in videos or in real life, can GUARANTEE your answer. if they say jaws,shane oneill,andrew reynolds,prod, and koston....theyre most likely a skate life- lingerer as i like to call them. i mean theres lots of people who are obsessed with sports and dont play. i plan to be the same way about skating even when i cant anymore....but thats beside the point sorry for goin slight OT

Only in high school did I meet the types of people this article addresses.  Dudes who wore skate brand clothes but barely skated, or didn't skate at all.  I would assume it was mainly to get chicks.

I'm almost 25 years of age now.  Posers don't exist at this age.  It's either you skate, or you don't...and even if they did exist, they would only be cheating themselves, because skateboarding from around 20 on gets progressively uncool to society.  Plus all the chicks who liked sk8r bois in high school have probably moved on to trying to fuck rich lawyers.

"Look at the girl and point to her while you do the trick, make sure you can land the trick! "

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, NO!!!!

Couldn't get more than a few sentences in to the first article. Obviously, if you're worried about someone else being a "poser" then you're either 12 years old and just stoked out on the movie Thrashin' for the first time, or you're a raging scene imposter yourself.

The second article is far more interesting, but I found myself confused about some things. Like this dismount method:
"Getting off: The most stylish dismount is to slow down to a comfortable speed then with your front foot, step off the front of the board and with your back foot,step on the nose making the board pop up (as in a nollie). catch the board as it becomes vertical behind you and continue to walk with a swagger."
The accompanying drawing just showed a dude setting up for a frontside nollie heel, then he was carrying his board. Magical.

Lastly, this is something that every skater has down and perfected:
Act like you aren't trying to impress anyone, and that you do this casually.

The second article is far more interesting, but I found myself confused about some things. Like this dismount method:
"Getting off: The most stylish dismount is to slow down to a comfortable speed then with your front foot, step off the front of the board and with your back foot,step on the nose making the board pop up (as in a nollie). catch the board as it becomes vertical behind you and continue to walk with a swagger."

I've been working on this trick for weeks. I got the motion down but walking with swagger is really hard



Try to step of in a backside motion and then snap the nose with your back foot while your in the motion. Might look even more stupid, but feels like swag.
I did that for a few years, until someone told and showed me how stupid it looks.

"Look at the girl and point to her while you do the trick, make sure you can land the trick! "

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, NO!!!!

Couldn't get more than a few sentences in to the first article. Obviously, if you're worried about someone else being a "poser" then you're either 12 years old and just stoked out on the movie Thrashin' for the first time, or you're a raging scene imposter yourself.

Exactly how I feel about public erections.

I thought if put a skater in a bowl of water they float and if you put a poser in they sink.

Wait, thats to tell if an egg is rotten or not.

I don't know how to differentiate between one Janoski shoe or the other.

Real skaters skate for the fun of it and don't care if others see what they land or don't land.

Posers film and photograph everything they do so they can show others how radical they are.

Pretty simple really.

A real skater wears the correct foundation to ensure their greasy complexion doesn't cause lens flare mid line.
