Biggest pet peeves while skating.
« on: March 13, 2011, 06:30:32 AM »
I am not sure if this is a topic already but what are your biggest pet peeves while skating?. One of mine is when I am trying a trick and I look up and see a car rolling directly beside me. Another is hitting rocks, the sound alone just pisses me off. What are some of yours?

- hitting a rock after bending my knees
- cars that don't know what they're doing.. everything goes smoothly if you're a semi-decent driver
- misguided pop shuvits to the kneecap
- dirty grip

When part of my outfit doesn't feel right.  Hood waving around, pants not stretchy enough, shoes not flicking good.

random people watching me skate would have to be my number one pet peeve. theres a school i skate at that no one really knows about and its like my own private spot. I go there when i want to skate by myself learn stupid goofy tricks or hell some times bust a few caspers. only problem is a lot of families ride their bikes through it and i swear everyone of them has to stop and watch me skate for a few minutes. I am not a fucking performing monkey!

ya shit in my pockets usually fucks with my head to. and i absolutely hate when i'm trying a trick at a park, or anywhere for that matter, and a dude sees what i'm trying and then lands it right behind me. i understand that my bag is mostly basics so there is gonna be some overlap. but when dude has done the last 4 moves i just tried, i may quote dangerfield and shut down. fuck little pedros man, it drives me nuts.

hair in my face

this, when in my normal stance its fine coz my hair flows to the right but fakie and switch i cant see anything, also my hair grows too fast.

little tiny pebbles
people who get in your way just to be a dick/on purpose
giant cracks in between paving slabs
sun in my eyes
when im sore and achey before the start of a session
wake up look out the window and its a beautifull day, get dressed, get all my shit together, grab my board, step outside and THEN it starts raining
if im skating the park-kids on scooters/running arround/standing on banks/sitting on ledges etc.
constantly telling kids to stop waxing the fucking floor, i mean seriously where do they get this shit?
parents who let their kids run around the skatepark and get all pissy when i tell them to have some common sense
mysteriously having dirt on your board when youve been no-where near dirt all day

stuff in my pocket (doesnt make street skating easier though), people on the streets that are simply waiting for you to fall, skating in a unknown park alone with poeple that are familiar with that place.

hell yeah, i dont have a lot of confidence while skating.

+1 loose change + 270 degree obtuse angle sock drama. can't believe i missed those.

let's add ipod headphone cords to the mix too. I love my music, but that had to stop. i'd rather skate with a boombox on my shoulders or bluetooth headset on.

also, i don't so much get offended by interested randoms watching me skate than other skaters watching me skate. at least walk up and say hi or something.. you know what it's like.

Sudden noises while rolling up to an obstacle. Someone suddenly whistling or yelling in the background. It doesn't even need to be very loud to make me lose all focus

I hate things in my pocket.
Hair in my face. Ive had long hair for the last 6 years, and I have to skate with a beanie even in summer, but Im too much of a pussy to cut that shit.
If I dont land my first kickflip and switchflip first try, my day is ruined, and Im probably not doying flip tricks or playing games of skate the whole session.

Hitting a bump or pebble when setting up for a trick.

My park is surrounded by paths so there is a constant flow of people walking past. You get used to it, but every five or ten minutes there is an old person that just stands still staring with a confused look on their face.

Like someone else said, other skaters who don't skate and just sit there watching. This happened today. I was skating the park alone and this kid who I have seen once before turned up on his own. I said whats up to him but he still sat there on the bench for ten mins.

And these two for sure.

-bailing simple flatground tricks
-trucks will never feel right

Skateparks, because of the little kids who inevitably/constantly get in the way at skateparks.  We all have to start somewhere, but its this magic place known as 'the driveway.'

Skating in anything with long sleeves totally fucks with my mind.
