I’ve been skating for nearly 9 months now after a very long hiatus and doubt I’ll ever be on the same wave length as people who stuck with it from a young age. I feel like a kooky mid-20s grandpa trying to live out his tweenage fantasies

I'm all about the welcome mat for all stripes and skill levels, whoever gets that little childlike thrill from rolling. But from your old posts (that you deleted), you ain't it.

You have to have bs lipslides on flatbars, at least one kickflip in ledge trick and atleast one stylish switch flip trick.

It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to bs lipslides then you aren't a skater.


Basically i don't consider 99% of slap to be skaters which is sad considering my low standards.
Not that there’s a point to arguing the matter with you, but I considered myself a skateboarder years before I landed any of the tricks you listed.
Shit, my homey; I was considering myself a skateboarder before any of those tricks were invented.
You can poke fun all you like, tell us we are or aren’t this or that, I don’t imagine a one of us gives a hoot what you think with regards to who is or isn’t a skateboarder.
I did, however, like your list of qualifications, even if it does set the bar a might high for some.
Grab yourself a tall, cold glass of shalom & chill out. There’s some nice folks on here; try engaging with them instead of berating them.

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.


Like listen to the responses to this thread " the first time falling in public " Ok so someone who hasn't even learned how to ride a skateboard is a skater because they ate shit infront of a crowd? That's retarded, an actual skater would say something like " a person who's fallen skating by themselves 1000 times and gotten up to land the trick"

When you get hurt doing something other than skateboarding and your reaction is "I could have at least hurt myself while trying something gnarly on my board instead of this. This is bullshit!" because that injury is going to keep you from skating.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

Have you seen those guys that manually prolapse their own rectums to try and look like real skateboarders? They think we don't notice the difference, but it's obvious.

I was classified as skateboarder after penis inspection day at school, Coach Jackson said I would be terrible at football but my lithe Asian frame was perfect for skateboarding.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Think about when you go grab something from the store and take your little wooden toy with you, if you know the feeling of how good it feels to roll around the streets, then you are a "skateboarder".

If you're 20 you should not worry about what others calling you.
Just skate, you will be fine.

Once someone who is already an established "skater" gives you whatever the current version of the special fist bump is, you're initiated.

When you have fun pushing. Thats it. Learning new stuff and working on tricks is definitely a great feeling but there are no set definitions of being a skateboarder. Also seeing stairs, ledges and other spots out in the wild and imagining tricks is also par with the course /part of the fun . Not everybody is going to have the same skill set or natural ability. Just skate and have fun imo

You’re not a skater if you have to go to zumiez and buy one.

You’re a skater when you get the subscription, with the free shirt and then you just wear it around to do yard work in, paint the house, or use it as a rag.

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.

You are such a fucking kook, it’s amazing.

And not for nothing but I've done both and nollie nose blunts ARE easier than bluntslides (front or back) so maybe it is you who is not a sk8r kemosabi

Yes WE are the delusional people.  How dare us lowly peons ever comment on someone’s skating if we aren’t exceptional as well.   

Using your logic, since I have a master’s degree and you do not, I can critique your education and intelligence since you haven’t struggled, strived or shown the same dedication to an education as I have therefore you are stupid and cannot call yourself educated especially in my presence.  Anything you say to the contrary will show me how jealous and inferior you feel/are
[close]

When did i say you have to be exceptional? This is your problem, if you ever actually put in any decent amount of effort to skating, the thing y'all claim to love you would realize learning bs lips, flip in ledge tricks and a nice switch flip isn't exceptional at all.

Your logic here is pathetic and it shows that education means nothing when it comes to your intelligence. First off anyone can go to school for 4 years as literally all it takes it showing up, skating for 4 years requires showing up AND dealing with 4 years worth of falls and injuries. Skateboarding is learned by yourself, give a new skater the exact advice on how to tre flip and it won't help him at all as he has to learn it himself, on the other hand give a student a formula and he can instantly put it to use by himself. There are also no cheat codes in skateboarding, if you can't do something you can't do it, you can't just copy the work or look it up on google and instantly have the trick like with education. Also to finish it off, i've never said anyone has to master skateboarding to state their opinion or have it matter, just have a decent bag of tricks so your talking from experience, aka in your school terms you should have at least passed grade 6 english class before you start talking shit on someone who's graduated high school.

You’re just jealous (and also clearly have no idea what higher education involved)
