Skateboarding Gravestones
« on: December 19, 2023, 11:53:59 PM »
Recently skateboarding had some negative news coverage in my local city. A local news decided to snitch on a famous skate spot since the 90s, which was a WW2 war memorial spot.

This made me interested if there any memorials or tombstones of skateboarders that are skateable/ramp or obstacle shaped? 

Found this one but it isnt skateable.

I wouldnít worry about the dead people doing much, but some living people might not love it.

There was a memorial quarter pipe at the North Hollywood skatepark for Angel Cisneros.
The last time i went it was removed.
From what i heard his friends and family put it together and added it to the skatepark and it was there for a while. My guess is that since it was added on , the city removed it- very possible a group of people lifted it as well.
I just visit there so I'm not part of that scene so it's just speculation on my part as to why it's no longer there.
I love you

Emile skated a tomb in the most recent Polar video.
This is not my SOTY. I'm telling my kids there was no SOTY for 2021

I was hoping this thread was about engravings in tombstones:

Here lies Darkstar, that helmet didn't do shit for us in the end...

The best gravestone I ever saw, was in the Italian cemetery my great grandma is buried at:

       Here likes Caramel Stracuzzi.
              He tried to be fair

Under that was a pair of boxing gloves.

I guess you can only try so much

There was this siiiiiiiick long black marble ledge that started low and went higher, at my old college.

It was a war memorial, and the campus was already no-skate bike cop patrolled… but this monument….

THIS monument would get you in deep shit and an instant arrival of cops in cars.

I was afraid of it and never skated it.

Anything glorifying war or violence like soldier memorials and statues of imperial shitbirds in general or status displays like fat ass Mausoleums (shout outs Emile) are fair game to me. Other stuff, like Holocaust memorials or other things commenorsting the murder of innocents, not so much. There's a controversial one here in Berlin, the multiple stairset thing Versace Plug and Giorgi always skate where Hyun did the stairset - flatground flip - stairset combo, that thing is a soviet era memorial to the Polish people murdered in the concentration camps. But it's also a Soviet status Symbol right in the middle of a huge park with plenty of Soviet insignia. So does the stalinist co-opting of innocents' deaths validate the shredding? Or should we respect a place of mourning and back off?

Donít approve at all.  While youíre not technically hurting anyone else, itís you who have debased your soul just a little bit by disrespecting the dead.

Seems to me that because cultures throughout history and all over the planet independently worked it into their social code, itís probably an important component of human nature even if we donít completely understand why.

When nothing in society deserves respect, we should fashion for ourselves in solitude new silent loyalties.

In fairness, lots of cultures did funeral pyres, and burial is thought to have originated for more practical reasons relating to predation and decomposition.  Religious burial is just some made up shit to try to make people ok with their fear of death (to not be completely gone and forgotten, still hold physical space).  I find the taking of land to bury people to be exemplary of our short sightedness as a species.  You donít have to be a mathematician to see the problem with burying everyone whoís ever lived or ever will in a physical location on a finite earth.

Itís just one more vestige of our primitive ancestors, that we continue to normalize.  Just think of the park or open space that could exist where the urban graveyard is.  Take note of how few people are visiting the graves (most urban graveyards are long since filled and the people who knew the deceased, long dead themselves).

Yes, I am aware of funeral pyres.  Itís just a different way of honoring the dead.  So I guess the funeral pyre equivalent of skating a headstone would be if someone roasted marshmallows over it or something.

Donít know what about I said made you think Iím some big burial promoter.  That just happens to be the form of death ritual weíre talking about in this thread.  Iíd have the same exact thing to say if someoneÖ sayÖ hit a piŮata filled with their grandmotherís ashes.  But yes, cemeteries do, in fact, hold value for a lot of people, even if you canít understand why.

Itís just one more vestige of our primitive ancestors, that we continue to normalize.

Yes, exactly!  Except itís not a vestige. It so ubiquitous in cultures all over the world past and present.  Even some animals have mourning rituals.  Seems arrogant to just dismiss it all as a bunch of bullshit, haha.

ďPrimitiveĒ man also had friends, cuddled with loved ones, played games, made art, got/gave blowjobsÖ should we give all that shit up too? 

I guess the split between us is that I see myself as a part of nature (donít have a choice, unfortunately) while you see yourself as being above it.  Itís probably the worst thing western secularism as done to us.  As if there were some clear dividing line when all the dictates of human nature no longer apply to us.  I know youíre not able to understand any of this because youíre a moron, so this is more directed to anyone else that might be reading this.
 
Itís adorable btw that you think weíre going to run out of room on the planet because thereís too many dead people in the ground.  Thatís literally something a nine year old would think.

This is so random and idk how I even remembered this, but Donny Barley briefly shows a veterans memorial that people used to skate in BAís epicly lateríd. From 5:08 to 5:37ish. Not really a grave, but I guess it still applies.

Hey no need to get all bent out of shape, remember be nice to people or you wonít go to heaven! 

We are actually already running out of room and have been moving people for some time, but the problem has not really hit a head yet (no pun intended). 

People dig up the resting places of Egyptian pharaohs and then drag their carcass around the globe, parading the body around while people climb all over the pyramid.  But an Ollie of a mausoleum is beyond the pale (again, unintended)?

I donít think Iím above nature btw, just some superstitions. 

Endless articles on the problems arising with running out of space, apparently people want to be buried near where they live, not in say the ample land in Siberia.

Thereís a granite tomb/slab/grave/ledge in one of the cemeteries here and the name on it is F.S. Smith.
