Trend Killer Thread.
« on: March 15, 2016, 12:46:06 AM »
Here's a place to talk shit about what erks you in modern skateboarding and what we should do to put a stop to it. I got a few on my list. I'll start with rubber toe caps. Just stop already! Shit is ugly. Next is those tiny weenie beanies and highwaters. Yuk! On tricks I can't stand to see slappy to no-comply out. Feces on a stick. And so on...

I agree with the highwaters/toe caps/ rolled up beenies.

I wish to go back in time where you could spot a skater from 50 yards away.

Every trick looks better in baggy pants other than a few exceptions. Ie marc johnson, kenny anderson and andrew reynolds

Seems like a perfectly reasonable fit to me.

 You and the D00D have turned this thread into a horrible head-on-collision between a short bus full of retarded kids and a van full of paraplegics.

This whole fashionista trend in skateboarding is out of hand and out of touch with what skateboarding is about...non conformity. Nearly every video I see and most people at the parks are all dressing the same. Be yourself, not someone else.

Fashion isn't new, but nothing justifies following trends. Skateboarding at its core is punk rock and non-conformity.

I mean the whole "fashion trend following" thing isn't new.  late 80's everybody dressed like Hensley, then World, then Mike Carroll, then Muska (the WORST trend in my opinion)/Penny, etc... It just goes around and around.  The cons/highwater/whatever thing is no different than the cargo pants/billed beanie thing. 

I agree it can be annoying but we all did it at some point or another, especially in the early/mid stages of our skateboarderdom.

May be true but we always followed fashion trends ALWAYS (punk does this too).
Tell me you never rocked oversized pants (or undersized wheels), or a chain wallet, or dad jeans and a crisp white shirt

I agree. I remember being a kid I attempted to dress like some of my favorite pros but I just remember looking at myself in the mirror thinking, "I look nothing like that person and I never will". Since that moment I've always lived by function over fashion and dress pretty normcore without much thought.

I don't think there's anything wrong with fashion and caring about how you look. Gonz dresses like a goofball yet still stylish. Duane Peters is another that comes to mind...pros that ooze originality. It's just that in my mind, I've put myself in the shoes of a "fashion-forward" person and I feel I would want to be unique, not look like the rest. That's just the way I see it anyway...

Thank god I clicked this thread. I just wish I could get the names of all of those songs.


I think the mid 2000's was the best for individuality, there wasn't a trend that dictated the industry, everyone naturally was or tried to be different, dressed different, had their own style and unique selection of tricks. If you went to contest, there wasn't 2 the same looking dudes. You couldn't confuse someone with somebody else. You had dudes wearing baggy pants, dudes with regular pants, dudes with chinos and you had handful of dudes in skinny/slim pants. Different tee fits, designs, hat styles, skateboarding footwear was dominated by cupsoles, was functional and had huge variety of designs and colorways. I fucking hate that we don't have leather skate shoes anymore, back then they were dominating the market. They lasted for years and I could walk in them in rainy or snowy weather. Everyone got along together for the big part and there wasn't a style that was "superior" or ruled over others in sense of relevance. Everyone appreciated each other and most importantly didn't look like kooks. It was about skateboarding and not about how you look.
