I don't like it. I'm impressed by your technology but I'd rather be friends.

i hate it but only because i dont have an ipod.

I have a feeling that's what most people's real reason is.

Unless I'm supposed to believe that people have these important conversations that need to go down, uh, during a skate session. What exactly do you dudes need to talk about? It must be important, because you seem bummed out because of this apparent lack of conversation. Maybe something like this:

"Yeah Erik Ellington, that was a sick big spin you just did over that Carlsbad gap, but FUCK YOU! I really needed someone to talk to. FUCKING iPODS!"

And not only did he get to rock his favorite tunes while floating that big spin, he also got fucked up that night!

I listen to an IPOD when I'm at the skatepark. It's a great motivator.
I try not to be a dick about it.
I hit the pause button when I'm not skating so I can talk to people.
But as soon as I put my board down I hit play.
Some people are regular when it comes to wearing IPODs.
So I understand the hate.

Hey, to each his own.

I kinda used to hate iPods before I had one, but it's become that "I don't know how I lived without it before" item for me. I could live without my cell phone, and maybe even my car, but my iPod gets love every day no matter what.

And skating to your own personal soundtrack is fucking sick. If there's a bad side to it, it's that it makes it too boring to skate without it now.

its cool man, i was just saying.
the main reason i don't want one is the fact that you almost always lose it, break it, or get robbed for it.  i watched my friend spend months uploading music into it only to have lost it 6 months later.  so he got another one and spent months uploading music all over again(he didn't back it up), finding tracks online, borrowing albums after album from friend after friend, only to have it break on him.
the amount of stress and possibility of stress just doesn't seem worth it to me, thats really the only reason i don't want one.
besides that, i can hear tunes in my head.  you don't know how many times i've had the intro to 411 playing in my head when i'm rolling up to hit something.  :P

I agree completely with those two statements.

For anyone considering getting one but are afraid of breaking it or getting it stolen buy a Ipod Shuffle

The things are practically indestructable and under 50 bucks.
I keep mine clipped to my front pocket and I have done more that few nose dives at the park.
Hell, the other day the thing fell off of me and a kid ran over it and it still works fine.
If you are on the fence about getting an Ipod go to the local Walgreens. Shit, they've got
budget ass mp3 players for $19.99
All I'm saying is...
I have Public Enemy, Loot Pack, Wu Tang, and Radiohead to thank for my newest blunt variations.

I almost always skate with an ipod. Music gets me in the mood to skate. It's fun to listen to a portable stereo with friends also.

Barely anyone ever goes to my local skatepark so I'm usually there by myself and it's in a pretty erie place so it helps to have the iPod. As soon as someone shows up though I take it out. I know I get bummed when people around me have them in.

beat me too it

my shuffle has a dent in it, is scratched up to shit and i think it's been washed also and that ho still works and they only cost 50 bucks


plus like you said, anytime you see someone you want to talk to near by you just pause and then when you throw down you play.

i used to use a jambox but it's just too awkward unless you know everyone at the spot so i definitely prefer ipod but if i had a backyard ramp, it'd be jam box all the way.

Its not even worthy of a discussion.

It makes you look stupid.
It´s primarily for people who lack friends.

I don't think its a good idea. Especially if your street skating. You gotta be able to hear the traffic and other important warning noises. Plus the sounds of skating are lovely.

PS. I found the Carroll quote about skating and iPods

Q   - "Do you ever skate with headphones on?"

MC - "Fuck that! Maybe if I was by myself. When someone throws the headphones on its like they're saying "I'm not skating with you." Shit’s hella rude!"
