When do you consider someone a “skateboarder”
« on: September 20, 2020, 08:48:40 AM »
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

They etch your name into a big rock at the summit of Mount Skateboadia the second you rip your first shoelace.  Can’t believe you didn’t know about that.

Then and only then are you initiated.

Fluffy fingers. That's when someone asks if you’re a real skateboarder and you just start ticklin' 'em. Then they start tickling you. Pretty soon, you’re laughing and hugging. Before you know it, you've forgotten that there was even a time you weren’t a skateboarder. Y'all just go to church together and get an ice cream cone.

There’s a conspicuous lack of skateboarding in that video.

“Skating is what we do, not who we are”



If you really really want to know when....


-The skate eye. Noticing spots in public. When your dad asks you to find a bench to sit on at Disneyland for your family, the first thing that comes to mind is sick grinds instead of sitting.

-The call. When you hear wheels rolling down the street, you HAVE to look. Impossible to ignore.

-Looking in the mirror and saying “ANDY ROY” 3 times.

-The force. It’s not as easy as noticing someone’s ripped shoes. Sometimes you just know when someone is a “skateboarder”

-Yelling, “Yeeeee” when another “skateboarder” barely scratches the coping.

-I’ve had that since ‘08. I‘m always eye fucking cellar doors and bump to bars that I’ll never be able to skate

-that applies to me but seems pretty entry level

-I don’t know who that is

-doesn’t apply unless they’re wearing something obvious like crusty dickies

-doesn’t apply

I shall not attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description (of a "skateboarder"), and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.

told this before but I “quit” for 7 years after doctors told me to and relearned it all at 27. I’m better at 32 than I was at 16 (low impact tho of course). Have fun. Also in my years off I always daydreamed about skating, saw spots, did imaginary fingerboarding on the table if you know what I mean. It’s for life.
