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.

I'm with you. If you take this thread literally it is, but jockish just seems like a substitute word. I don't know what you would call it though, more like crazy than jockish. Take that famous Grewer clip for example in SF where he drops in off some some wall, bombs the hill, then powerslides on his ass for like 1/2 a block and slides under a car. So he was supposed to push down the hill? Don't think so. Sorry that sounds so cringy...but I do get what everyone is saying for pushing on a hill....but I don't know about a hill "bomb". I don't think that's been done, almost seems as unnatural as pushing doing the loop. Or the Nuge world record hill bomb in LA, he could have pushed?

I can't imagine pushing down a hill, I can rarely stay on while bombing a hill, to me its impressive.

Jockish is a terrible word.

if anything it would be Street league and that shit that is jockish, pushing down a hill is just straight gnar/sillyness on equal measure.

Just want to remind everybody that nobody claiming pushing down hills is jockish actually skates hills and is looking for an excuse why doing raw shit they’ll never try isn’t cool. Its VERY TRANSPARENT, kooks.

Yup, you don’t win anything, you don’t get points, its not sports related at all. Bowl skating, rail skating, stair skating, ledge skating all could be just training for street league or the vans bowl series. There’s no downhill shortboard league.


And all the people saying its “show offy,” welcome to skateboarding, where every kid who has ever kickflipped a set of stairs has posted it on the internet.
If you are going to call out somebody for being a show off:
call out all of instagram,
call out anybody who does a fliptrick down stairs instead of just ollieing it, as a flip trick is show offy, all he had to do was ollie
Call out anybody who does a 5-0 instead of a 5050, since balancing on that one truck is show offy
Call out any fucking manual, them shits are just impractical...why roll on two wheels when you can roll on four?

Skateboarding as all about being a show off, why do you kooks suddenly think its an issue when its pushing down a hill, which actually has a practical purpose?
Look back to the top of my response for the answer, kooks.
Are you a kook? If you would say this, the answer is “YES”

I'm fucking convinced some of you do not skateboard. You banter like fan-nerds at a comic-con.

Fellas: is it gay to land your tricks? I mean, you’re jumping and then landing on a deck, just saying. You know what, this should be a separate thread, hang on lemme make a poll

I push uphill...
I don’t. If I’m on even a mild uphill I snap that board right up in my hand and walk.

Alright, guys! Good D. Good D (discussion). I made this poll out of fun, mostly. To me, it depends on the steepness of the hill: if it's way steep and you're pushing on the flat before it, or during the first quarter of the hill (or even at the bottom) -- you're possibly kookin' in. Jockish/showy-offish has similarly defined qualities to me, however I'll reserve my personal opinions.

I probably should have gotten rid of the safe option in the poll, being that it looks closely split, but whatev's. & for those wondering, Chet Childress is more of my Fred Gall than Gall himself, sooo...

It's official:

WE AS A SKATEBOARD COMMUNITY ELECT TO RECOGNIZE THE ISSUE OF PUSHING vs NON-PUSHING, A NON-FACTOR IN THE ACCEPTABILITY STANDARDS of DOWNHILL SKATEBOARDING.

Be free to rip as you see fit, my brothas! Just be careful out there.
