I didn't grow up saying skate slang so I just don't say it. It felt unnatural to start talking a certain way after I started skating. A few phrases have slipped through though - "right there" being one of them. Not even really skate-specific. I like to say "duder" but that's because of Orgazmo.

I liked how some duders invented their own slang though, like Spanky saying "gangster status situation what I do" and things like that. It's creative.

"Player" was huge around here for a few years - it went from people pronouncing it "player" to "plare" to "plurr". A couple of dudes who are actually funny started calling everyone "player" and then everyone who is not funny started doing it and it became extremely annoying. Eventually I'd go to the park and hear a bunch of 12-year-olds wearing skullcaps and overalls calling each other "plurr".

just meeting new skaters and seeing how low the bar of conversation is set is always so disappointing... maybe it's more of the younger ones, the ones in their 30s who are still at it tend to have grown up a little bit and can actually converse like normal humans. but yeah, especially when the high school/early 20s skaters are around each other, they amplify their "coolness"/"stonerness" by acting really high and laughing at the stupidest shit. the older I get, the more everyone's insecurities are just so obvious, almost tangible.

It fucking bugs me when skaters are all, like, "no" after I feed 'em Jagermeister and then ask to suck their dick. It's like, don't be such a fem with all that me too shit, bro.

I don't really mind how others talk, I do hate myself a little more every time I use the word totally for some reason though.

look at any instagram skate trick right now with a lot of comments (go to thrasher or indy or one of the big skateboarding instagrams)... How many of those comments have the word "heavy" in them?

TOO MANY.
Those are all Brophy comments

YEW is fucking disgusting.

Worst thing in skating right now though is kids throwing horns all the time. It's the new shaka, both of which should be left in the past where they belong.

I made the mistake of using the word "kook" around a non-skater. Trying to explain what it meant was painful.

An understated shaka is quite a gentlemanly act in my opinion.

I use words like sick, rad, and gnar when around skate friends. Feels natural in the right context but pretty cringey in a non-skater setting.
I thought it wasnt just him solo, shouldve stuck with my og thought.

Remember the 1-2 years when people were doing that shake junt inspired double tap handshake crap? That was still  worse than hearing "dummy lit" multiple times a day.

i'm glad you brought this up. i do it at the skatepark all the time which really annoys me, it's fucking stupid but i do it. i started skateboarding in 6th grade and have obsessed over skateboarding culture since then, so i'm fucked. but i'm definitely been trying to make an effort to curb that as much as possible.

  This started with people being grammar\spelling natzis on slap forum.  Inevitalby that had to spread to dudes talking and the need to police/reduce that too.   I heard a concept on the radio that any system built for optimization is a form of Artificial intelegence. (capitalism?)  I think we're there (ai run amok) already with our platform economy.  Any way what I think I'm saying is we should stay away from any group think such as "skate talk is stupic" -It's completely no more or less stupid than any other shit people say.
