From my experience, it was about a 70/30 split of broken home/low income to dual parent/mid-higher income. This was 80s-90s after that canít say since I was married with a kid. I was in the broken home/low income part.

Definitely not a sport.
Itís playing with a toy. No matter what corpos say/want you to believe.

Skateboarding didnít become a rich kid activity until Tony Hawk landed the 900 and the video game came outÖ when skateboarding died in the late 80s and all the way until the late late 90s it was shunned to be a skateboarder. Regular people stereotyped skateboarders as low lives and delinquentsÖ

I started in 96 so I definitely caught the tail end of that mentality. In fact it lasted through the early 2000ís despite the video game and espn exposure. Now you got cops who used to skate. I was skating in a parking garage the other day and this businessman who worked in the complex came down by me and asked me if I wanted him to move his car so I could have more room to skate. Shit like that still trips me out.

Watching that Mariano Memory Screen: mid period Guy (Mouse, etc.) is my least favorite.

Maybe itís because I didnít watch those videos when they came out but I feel like thatís everyone elseís favorite era.
[close]
Thatís a really an unpopular opinion. I didnít even like Mouse that much- I thought those guys were all pretty insufferable, except some of the lower tier guys like Keenan and Chico. And the skits were annoying. But even I thought Guyís part was undeniable. I canít thank of too many people who ever switch backside nose grind 180íd a handrail.

But I could maybe understand not being into it if you missed the era. That era was kinda whatever.

Yeah.. you two are younger than 35Ö
I wish. I was like 20 when Mouse came out

Iíve seen other people make this complaint before and it makes zero sense.

Skateboarding is awesome these days and the 90s were not the greatest

I could agree more. The 90s was about being in love with something people didn't understand. Now people understand us we get way better products. Kids in Africa are doing inverts in diy parks on the world's second hand product.

This age has made me under the art value of what we do and how necessary it it for mass cultural change towards a more beautiful future.

Think about the cold war era skaters who went behind the curtain. Today people rip in china. It's the fruition of an offering peace in times when the oppositions systems demanded war and stoked fear in it's hostages/citizens.

It just going to continue to fester and brew until KIM get focused by a pack of North Korean Olympic Skate Rats who finally got to taste Venture at the last Olympian meet up when future Coach PJ Ladd kicked over his bloard and set the world a blaze.
6 months later reunification!

The cia should be sucking our toes and building us better ledge tech. Who else is talking about Mrs and General Grant's tomb in a positive in 2024

Fair. I really didnít love Girl/Chocolate at the time. Seemed like every video was an hour of crooked grinds. Foundation was my favorite in that era. They were always a little weird

Baggy jorts that reach below the knee. Atrocious. Not too sure this is that unpopular and probably they are not that trendy anymore.

It's gonna be like a 55 year old comedian coming out with the same tired schtick they did in the early 90s' then getting pissed off that nobody thinks it's funny anymore.
90% chance this ends with Rocco complaining that people are "too PC these days" and "nobody can take a joke anymore".

Steve Roccoís return wonít matter

Iím fairly certain weíve already seen the return. Those two sidewalk IG posts were it :/

think about how ephemeral skate media is compared to then. Back in the day you could bring a copy of big brother to school and some Rocco ad with edgy humor could be circulated for months all the while building hype and stirring up controversy. Nobody is doing that with a hard copy of thrasher in 2024. Full length skate videos hardly even exist and when they do come out itís straight to YouTube to be viewed for a few days/a week before fading into the ether.

Thereís just no platform to command even if he did have some plan to do a bunch of clever attack ads, which is being generous considering the man is most likely beyond out of touch with modern skating and its audience. The length of his reach will be the sidewalk dist IG account and that ainít shaking shit up anymore than getting a bunch of anti woke boomers wet in the pants.

Ollie Norths should be an illegal trick.

It feels like they've only blown up this year to "show off" how good you are. Like "hey look at me I'm so good I'm running out of tricks to learn so I've resorted to Ollie Norths" despite them looking ugly as shit.

I just HATE it when I see a dope line end with some stupid tiny ollie north.

They are fun to do though.  Post a line that ends with this trick, I canít remember seeing that

How about Josh Hawkins with the elevator door closing on him right after landing a trick

Imo ollie one foot is not proper. North specifies the front foot comes off. Saying ollie one foot means the front or back foot could come off.

Thatís nonsense. Ollie one foot means kicking your front foot off. Anything else can be called something else. Just like kick flip means the most basic version. Since basically no one kicks off their back foot it doesnít have a name but thatís fine, itís stupid anyway.
