Not hating, but it crossed my mind. Can't remember where I've seen it. maybe gx? It's dangerous enough: something that seems unnecessary in a way, like it's a bit of death-wish antic. But then again, it's extra sketchy and amazing when some one makes it all the way through.

Fuck it why not.  The whole idea of bombing is to go fast, why not go faster? To me its not the same as adding stairs or flips.

Depends on if you have a good push..

And what about you push before the hill to get the speed you need?

But for me it's what evs...

some hills, if you push on them it actually slows you down. after a certain speed it acts like a foot drag but looks macho. i'll do it at the top of a mellow hill to beat traffic or whatever.

Push it to the limit... that's what people are going for. Adrenaline.

Personally I never want to the reach the point on my skateboard again where I'm going too fast to powerslide and my only options are straight line until I slow down, jump off and face the consequences, or smash into something that crosses my path.

I think Frank Gerwers slide out method remains the best option when you hit maximum velocity. There's a reason why downhillers rock those gloves with the pucks on them.

Pushing UP a hill might be jockish. Especially if it's in the snow.

Slap should definitely have a convention one day.  Set up some curbs and a Fred Gall kissing booth and the whole board will come.

It’ll be a step below dashcon

Whoever made this is a fucking idiot who jusy embarassed themself. Pushing downhill is fucking awesome. If pushing down a big hill is jockish, then just skating a big hill is jockish in the first place.
Pushing down is “I want to go fast, this will help me go even faster” and I 100% back it.

Also, on a personal level, bombing a hill with a light, seeing that countdown on the “walk” sign getting low and pushing to make sure you make it instead of slowing down is one of the funnest things ever.

I want to know who the 6 flatland living losers who vited yes are, so they can immediately be banned

Edit: when i went back to kook you for being such a kook, I saw you say you don’t remember where you saw it. Yeah, antihero guys did it, but the gx guy known for it is Pablo Ramirez, and he is a straight up maniac.

Generally this is a valid concern, but when it comes to pushing through a hill bomb, somebody could be doing feathery, quick “tap dancing kitten” Leo Romero style mongo pushes and I’d still get hyped.

I could actually see where OP is coming from, it could maybe be seen as show-offish, but in the case of both sean young and the GX guys they are just trying to go as fast as possible for adrenaline.
