"Real skateboarders don't even wear brand tees every day. They tend to shop specific brands, too, such as DC, Element, Hurley, and Volcom."

Yeah, you just know people supporting those brands are real as fuck. Especially Hurley.

in a related/unrelated comment, half of the cool kids in skateboarding right now are posers. the only thing that makes a true skateboarder is having fun

The word poser brings me back to 2001, and the most accurate description is a skater who hasn't taken 2 serious slams. Slams that take you out of skating for a while. My cousin told me that when we were playing THPS bail videos on PS1

If you can't watch this video without thinking; " some of these aren't even that bad" then you are a poser.

Real skaters do hard drugs, so all you posers should get your health insurance game up so you can fail outpatient and qualify for a bed in an inpatient facility before your friends find out how big.of a pussy you are.

If you ever quit the drugs, you've earned the right to be a seasoned vet. This affords you the ability to sit on the ledge and smoke a pack and a half while telling all the posers how shitty skating has become, and make sure to throw some back in thebday shit so they know you really know what's up. Ex. John montesi never fit in with the rest of those curb bonking tail draggers on new deal, you ever heard of all that? I thought not.....

did some research and im glad to say im not a poser anymore


not sure which one was borknasty, or if they were posers, but that was pretty tight
also if you read my whole facebook timeline from back in 2007 then this will also prove that magic is real.

I usually ask something along the lines of whether or not every solution of Ax=b is a least-squares solution when b is in the column space of A.

I know this is stupid cuz you can be a true skater without staying in touch with topical skate media. BUT, just by asking someone who their top 5 favorite skaters are, or what their favorite tricks in videos or in real life, can GUARANTEE your answer. if they say jaws,shane oneill,andrew reynolds,prod, and koston....theyre most likely a skate life- lingerer as i like to call them. i mean theres lots of people who are obsessed with sports and dont play. i plan to be the same way about skating even when i cant anymore....but thats beside the point sorry for goin slight OT

Only in high school did I meet the types of people this article addresses.  Dudes who wore skate brand clothes but barely skated, or didn't skate at all.  I would assume it was mainly to get chicks.

I'm almost 25 years of age now.  Posers don't exist at this age.  It's either you skate, or you don't...and even if they did exist, they would only be cheating themselves, because skateboarding from around 20 on gets progressively uncool to society.  Plus all the chicks who liked sk8r bois in high school have probably moved on to trying to fuck rich lawyers.

Real skateboarders don't wear brand tees. They were blank ones, Mickey Mouse ones, Simpsons ones, and own every black sabbath t-shirt, and also that one generic slayer t-shirt.

Do chicks want to fuck security guards that skate?

Those work great. Or I'll use the line, "Hey there. My name's Daniel. I put the 'bone' in 'boneless'." And then I wink at 'em.

"Look at the girl and point to her while you do the trick, make sure you can land the trick! "

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, NO!!!!

Couldn't get more than a few sentences in to the first article. Obviously, if you're worried about someone else being a "poser" then you're either 12 years old and just stoked out on the movie Thrashin' for the first time, or you're a raging scene imposter yourself.

The second article is far more interesting, but I found myself confused about some things. Like this dismount method:
"Getting off: The most stylish dismount is to slow down to a comfortable speed then with your front foot, step off the front of the board and with your back foot,step on the nose making the board pop up (as in a nollie). catch the board as it becomes vertical behind you and continue to walk with a swagger."
The accompanying drawing just showed a dude setting up for a frontside nollie heel, then he was carrying his board. Magical.

Lastly, this is something that every skater has down and perfected:
Act like you aren't trying to impress anyone, and that you do this casually.

I've been working on this trick for weeks. I got the motion down but walking with swagger is really hard

Try to step of in a backside motion and then snap the nose with your back foot while your in the motion. Might look even more stupid, but feels like swag.
I did that for a few years, until someone told and showed me how stupid it looks.
