Why does the ego get so inflamed with skateboarding?

You make 34k a year and some dipshits who watch the berrics might know your name?

What entitles you to be a complete scumbag?

Depends what you mean by scumbag. I've met some dickhead skateboarders but never anywhere near as bad as soccer and rugby players who just play for some ok local team probably make barely minimum wage have been.

Shocked to find out that professional athletes have large egos.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

because it is an "art form" and art brings out some of the most pretentious, insufferable people in existence

Inflamed because they're weak egos. Male egos are very fragile

I'll chalk it up to the culture mostly made up of dude, and formed by (so many shallow ego) + (or multiplied by???)  the rapid volatility in the act of skateboarding. Land a trick, success. Miss a trick, failure.

The more I ponder it and arrive at possible reasons, the more I see how much I don't understand.

Idk there's prob some nuanced, comprehensive explanation but this ain't no Astute, Trauma-Informed Banter last time I checked

suggesting an individuals yearly income should make them feel ashamed instead of prideful is pretty egotistical

Because skateboarding is fucking cool and 12 year old's respect you more than their own fathers.
Hopefully not a kook, but if so, fuck it.

Chances are that your assessment is based on digital or social media which is actually an ego machine….

The worst are the dudes who were just barely good enough to go AM. Even at the courts in Vancouver, which is this super diverse place, my least favorite dude is right on the edge of being good enough to be AM. Dude sucks.

I don't think skater's egos are any more overinflated than any other activity in the world. People have massive egos over the silliest things - listening to obscure music, having a powerful computer, how much they can drink. But with skating there's a pretty clear line of ability and it's easy to see how one is more skilled than another skater which can be a huge boost. Skating also has a pretty solid history of glorifying "scumbag" behavior so even when people are being outright foul, there's an audience (or at least friend group) cheering it on. And maybe I've just been fortunate in my experiences, but I don't think skating itself gives people huge egos. Most are friendly enough. There's just a number of fools out there with huge egos that skate.
i love skateboarding all the time, but sometimes i wish i was one of those douchebags who hangs out with hot girls and parties every week

I thought I posted but I didn't.

I've never been loved in skating. I've rubbed elbows with mad industry kooks over the years.

Like 5 of the greatest pros in history.

They all didn't like me or was frightened if the chill with me they might catch gay or heroin perhaps crack.

It's not easy being the first sigma wolf in the history of east.

No one knows how to handle it at all.

I'm not better I'm just different. If you let down you guard I got your back.

Unless you be harming other skaters and passerbys.

I will defend the life of a security guard if you force my hand
Plz stop killing each other
