What is your definition of core skateboarding
« on: March 16, 2022, 03:15:02 PM »
who/what do you think is the prime example of "core skateboarding."

For brands I consider DLX as the most "core" company

If you are going to ask for a ‘definition’ of core, please provide one.

If you want ‘examples’ of core, that’s different.

Core skateboarding is skating often and pushing yourself for enjoyments sake and just immersing yourself in the culture in someway. Anything that goes against that ethos is not core. Plain and simple.

Ex. Supreme - Core as fuck. Sponsors and pushes grimey street skating to the masses.
Calvin Klein - Not core. Posts models in underwear.

yeah i agree w the ethos thing, its more about how you do it rather than what you do. would rather watch people do good looking ollies off a curb than see someone switch laser heelflip a 30 stair or whatever

Your local, or whatever local shop in your city/region that is doing something for the scene. Whether that be helping set up a DIY, initiatives to get a skate park, hosts premiers, helping out a broke kid with busted gear but a clear passion, etc.

Still doing your most challenging tricks when there are no other skaters to impress and only a bunch of scooter kids at the park is my definition of core skateboarding.

The exact geographical location of skateboarding's core is directly under the DC logo at the Rob Dyrdek Plaza in Kettering Ohio.

Look at the history of the skateboarding industry... the best skaters used to be so popular they could flip the industry on it's head (Rodney, Carroll just two examples of many) because they had the board sales/credibility to take their fans with them into their own brand. People try it constantly on a smaller scale. But they were also smart enough and took the risks to pull it off.

When you start involving multi-billion dollar corporations in skate sponsoring, no singular skater can pull off anything like that. The whole idea of "core" thus becomes a relic of the past until all of the major pros and best skaters in the industry  completely stop wearing Nike, Adidas, and any brand/company that has a total net worth that's of astronomical value, such that it's impossible to bankrupt them of either all their money or credibility as a skateboard-related company.

If you were not skating before 1986, you are not and will never be core.

Skating for having fun skateboarding. That‘s the core of skateboarding. Everything else: Fashion, brands, being cool, contest etc. are not core.
