Skate Shit That's Actually Not That Bad
« on: August 03, 2006, 09:21:07 PM »
A lot of skate shit, if you think objectively, has a bad rep that it really doesn't deserve. Could be because it's groupthink and it's hard unraveling formed opinions. Could be because the rep is so old, it's just accepted even though things have completely changed for the better. Could be because of corporate ownership. Could be for reasons that are just plain dumb. So who's bad rep is most undeserved? (and feel free to add stuff that's not in the poll. but vote anyway.)

I wasn't even aware that Brazilians had a bad rep.  I picked dork tricks, simply because they are fun...just don't make a career out of them a'la Nate Sherwood and Julio Delacruz.

and youre one to judge.and have you made a skate career?  the 2 stair handrail in front of your dads house that you "almost boardslid" doesnt count. when you get a skate career going, then you can talk.

I don't think Duffel is that bad....sure he said some stupid shit a long time ago but whatever....he is just a dude that's into the 1977 punk scene and more than likely idolizes Stiv Bator...big deal....I don't see a problem with that.

I voted shorts but should have voted brazilians. The real reason they get bad press is because of the varial flips

and I can't believe people actually voted for corey duffel. I hope him and all his stair-counting faggot fans jump off something too big and die. there is nothing, let me repeat, NOTHING, good about corey duffel

shorts.  when it's 110 degrees out, your pants get soggy with sweat like 20 minutes into the session.  no thanks.

I don't actually get what's so wrong with skating with shorts on, i don't really have a problem with it, bar the idea that 3mm or denim is going to protect my leg from a shinner.

But saying that i freak out if i don't have to wear a jacket when i'm outside in case of a cheeky wee rain storm, hey it might not be hard rain but it's persistant
...can't believe this thread brought Donnie Murdo out of the woodwork!

Really, who voted for Duffel.  That kid sucks on so many levels.  Who cares if you are part lemming and will follow a group to jump off the highest precipice?  Unoriginal, bland, and talentless.  Everything skateboarding shouldn't be.  Fuck that dude.

julio is just kept doing the same tricks he did in 92/93, the fuck are you talking about. he always had dope companies too.
