2023 unpopular opinion thread

skaters shouldnt do any podcast/video interviews. most skaters have the linguistic capabilities of a 20 year old high school senior.

not hearing you speak adds to the mystery of your character & allows the public to idealize you because all we would know is how well you skate, whilst not knowing how much a vapid dumbass you are. all around better for the skaters' career

Rails are the stupidest thing ever even on cruiser setups theyíre fucking dumb I donít care how old you are theyíre always dumb I donít respect it at all itís tasteless and so fucking lame and looks disgusting every single time. It was cool back in the 80s but society has progressed past needing those things. I cringe so much seeing any setup with rails especially in the setup thread itís just ridiculous to be putting rails on your board in 2023, grow the fuck up

^^Tell us how you really feel!

Skate edits are not cool at all unless they are also kinda funny. Even bad attempts at humor are better than none.

Boards over 8.0 are ridiculous and the silly shapes are just gimmicks.

saw a comment in shoes/gear about how some people just need to buy dress shoes rather than trying to find emericas that they can wear to a wedding

in a similar vein, don't understand people past their teens still buying 'skate clothes' beyond tshirts/hoodies
why would i buy shitty pants / knitwear from a company like vans/enjoi/emerica rather than from a thrift store and/or from a company that's actually dedicated to making quality clothing

 Ride-on grinds absolutely count. They're most often done because it's the only way to hit the rail, not the easy way to hit it.

Is this a Chris Roberts diss?? 🤔🤔 He sounds like an emotionless robot that reads from a teleprompter, maybe he should stick to skating and leave the whole interview shit to clowns like Conan OíBrien

I donít even care if it is in fact trueÖ.but it canít be true, can it? Maybe Iím just old so I donít see how kids worship YouTubers but the explosion of skating in the late 90s-early 2000s, and effect those video games had on the uptake was gargantuan.

Using the word clip as a verb is the lamest thing ever, worse than learn as a noun

The Rowans are basically just Rowleys, right? If so, then yes, the Rowley is one of the best shoes Vans ever made.

Are you implying that there's some undignified about a bunch of 30 and 40-somethings clamoring for a discount code on some $140 ultra-baggy "skate" pants?
