Pleasures exclusive to skateboarding
« on: November 07, 2022, 05:58:32 PM »
One of my favorite things is the different texturesÖ like my wheels are the needle. Besides the obvious adrenaline rush, whereís the gusto come from?

Not being able to mall grab even though itís pretty convenient.  Itís the arbitrary denial that really strums my guitar

knowing that you are better than a rollerblader.

I love when people bring up world hunger. It makes everything meaningless.
"That guy is double parked."
"Who cares? There are people starving to death! Besides, how does that affect you? Does it lessen the joy of parking?

Yep, especially the kind where you put your hands down and use the momentum to slide on your butt. But this is only ideal for skateparks or spots with smooth ground.

I find the sounds of skateboarding overall pleasant. Power slides, slappies on crunchy curbs, the snap & catch, and stomped flip tricks landed bolts. Sometimes Iíll just throw on thrasher raw edits while Iím doing shit around the house because it gets me hyped

 An appreciation for the absolute minutiae of architecture. Some people marvel at buildings, we'll marvel at the physical properties of a single block that the building is comprised of.

being able to locate certain locations in films, movies, videos, pictures (all non-skate but naturally also in skate-versions) whether they are in the US, europe, asia, or even more specific eastern europe, spain, portugal, etc. for example if you see certain cobblestones and patterns like those rectangular ones in barca or those white smaller ones in portugal or so you already know where that is. same goes for american surfaces and architectures, even if you have never been there.
also having a different perception of buildings, architecture, pavements, road surfaces and so on. i think that's pretty cool.

"Like so fuckin' chill"

One of my favourite things after stumbling across it the other week on here. Never fails to make me laugh but also can relate to it of course.

The sound and feel of polyurethane wheels rolling over smooth brick.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

The sound of urethane on somewhat rough asphalt, the double take every time I drive by something that looks even semi skateable in a lurker lou way, and the way my heart skips when I see a crusty ass ditch nobody's skated yet

ahh yes, a simple pleasure

Getting one-upped by a 12 year old

not exclusive to skateboarding, but this is happening less as time goes on and children get more and more sedentary.
