calm down dude.  you can have fun at those generic parks.  i have fun there, so what does it matter to me if you don't like them?
Don't worry about him. He thinks that the point of the slap boards is to belittle as many people as possible over nothing. The kid clearly has temper problems (look at the way he can't stop crying about his theory that Kerry Getz ruined his main spot) and always needs to prove himself by putting down others. He doesn't really feel sorry for you, he just feels better than you, because thats what he does.

Gest- so spot on. Shitty cement parks that don't make much sense are so fun to fuck with. I saw some interview with somebody once where they were talking about it like, if the spot was built on the street and was all shitty and hard to skate it would make it more fun, so why should it be any different with a park?

slap cliche number #x

i think the only people that like skating shitty stuff are people that aren't very good, it kind of levels the playing field.

Granted, it is cliche, but I disagree with your assesment. It takes a lot more talent to do the same trick on an imperfect spot than a perfect one. Thats why people like footy of backyard pools more than bowls. Also, some people don't really care about "leveling the playing field," they are people who are out to have fun

seems like i always find some random wallride spots or wallie spots.

perfect.....that and some cool weird manual pads....lately....because I've been skating again....I've been on the lookout for a nice 2sided curb to mess around on.....not just for boardslides and bluntslides...but more like stuff like nollie lip to smith to back to lip to fakie over the other side.....does anyone remember doing stuff like that?.....it's seen quite heavily in the Hokus Pokus era....so much fun.

fair enough, i'm just saying a lot of these people aren't very good.
if they don't care about being good, i'm sure that wouldn't get upset when someone points out they aren't.

double sided curbs are the shit. natas and tim gavin.

^^^yes......it's kind of sick to session a flat bar like Matt Hensley did in Hokus Pokus.....he basically murdered the Jarabek beam back then.....I had the pleasure of skating there in 1992...so much fun....I guess it's gone now from what I've heard.

What about the Anti Hero team? Those guys kills shitty parks. I think shitty parks are harder to skate, you have to find lines, or figure out how to do a trick on some super tight tranny.

I swear to god I was one second away from writing that exact same thing, except for the spelling of Drehobl, which I'm sure I also butchered.

As for what you pointed out monkey, that may be true, but at the same time, the only people I know who are conscious about who is much better or worse than them are the people inconfident about their own abilities. But then again, there is no real rule about this sort of thing. I guess I get why you hate Puleo now, though I'm still kind of confused about your avatar, its sarcastic right?

But in the end, it takes more talent to skate a wierd obstacle well than a perfect one.

That's what I meant, same trick. So the avatar is sarcastic but the caption isn't? Got it.

Favorite spot to this day is the local elementary school.  Perfect smooth tennis court, and the best 4 set you've ever skated in your life.  The hours I've logged there over the years would be insane.  I love it.

Same for a local shopping center that seems to be the hangout with all of my friends.  Natural bump in the parking lot, and it's ever better with a box or a flatbar.

The ledge at my old middle school. Its pretty chunky and next to a wall but its close by and not a bust. Otherwise I like to skate banks, wallrides, and anything unusual, or some better ledges.
let me just name a few of the hammers in this video...

My cone collection: one of every height up to 3 feet. Taking tricks I've previously learned and trying to bring them to the next level is how I like to skate.

And why is there so much trash talk here, i don't understand.
