Skateparks in sydney are flooded with scooter kids but there are still the odd skaters that show up....where im at now in this country town its literally all scooter kids, never seen another skateboarder here


We may not know what skateboarding is
But we sure as hell know what it aint
Wait we know what it is now too -
Falling down and gettin back up

I have mostly given up and if they seem like they are competent enough on scooter and itís clearly just a pack of them just hogging the fucking park I will snake on principle. Sounds arsehole but itís just physics, they would probably be the ones to go flying

That said you can tell for sure when itís just a kid with no idea, I say hello to the proper little kids or if theyíre camping out on the deck and not sure when to go I would yell out go mate go itís all you

I kinda gave up years ago. Times have changed and most of us probably got reamed by some older bloke or blokes and learned to give respect to get respect but Iím not about to be on some fucking YouTube clip going of at kids

I legit know blokes that solo film at skate parks and start screaming if kids get in their way
It looks so bad, proper cringe shit, please donít do this guys

Prince, I think youíre right about aus scooter kids

Lmao one of my first skatepark memories is toombul and watching some kid get rolled for his 3.30 so the older cunt could go get a tallie

Fuck I remember that well gimme my three bucks thirty cunt Iím gonna fucken dip if I donít get a drink cunt and then youíll be fucked

I remember wearing my dc shirt down there and some guys like what size is that and I told him and he said fuck yeah Iíll have that. Dude saw I was fully about to cry and heís like man Iím kidding

They were cool to me though, wouldnít let me smoke bongs with them or anything said I was too young
And thatís where I got my fear of needles, too

I wouldnít want my kid being around that crap at all so maybe itís good times have changed

the line down the middle of the grip, or leaving a bit of the tip of the nose exposed when putting on grip. but the worse is when both are combined. Liked it at first but now, not so much.
This has me cracking up, what exactly does Black Flag have to do with measuring your dick starting behind ya nuts?

Fake no complies. You know, when the person steps off with the front foot but then also lifts their back foot off the board to pop the tail. Gotta keep that back foot on and master the pop. Itís all one motion.

grip tape art where the user trys too hard
kickflops - the board gets ghost pop, does a quarter shuv and front foot goes completly off the side without making contact with the griptape
I wish I'd known that at best we only have 20 summers at a decent skate level.
From then on it's low impact skating and trying not to forget tricks. 20 summers. And then it's over.

Colored wheels I really really hate the way they look especially manual flip tricks where the filmer is seriously close to them. 


Think Theotis Beasley Bake and Destroy Bones multicolored 100's or black wheels if it's that shitty spitfire yellow I can get by but the rest for me are visually repulsive.


All black grip, white or off white graphics inside, Allen bolts, Big stickers over wheelbite spots.

When a well-filmed video is posted, someone advocating for its format always says "This is evidence that [HD or VX] is the only way to film skateboarding, the other option is dysfunctional and decrepit/zoomy and stupid"
Regular stance is a mental disorder defined by the DSM-5
