Title: Most ridiculous thing someone has said about skateboarding
Post by: Alien Sweatshop on February 26, 2009, 04:52:02 PM
My friend after hearing that I had failed Physics told me, "You skateboard right? Well if you did well in Physics you'd be able to calculate at what velocity you're going so you don't fall or you can calculate where you'll land after doing an ollie"

My family and I were eating dinner with my aunt, her husband and her kids one time, and Uncle told us how my cousin had won a huge basketball game recently and my dad said, "I wish my son participated in a sport that I could be proud of him for"

I was trying to start off highschool right, didn't want anyone to know that I skated...
skater at school: "hey my fellow skater, high five!"
me: *ignore him
Everyone else: You skateboard?

some dad calling the cops on me for skating in a park: i understand, i used to skate too.
me: no you didn't. you may have had a skateboard, but there is not such thing as "used to" in skateboarding.
him: something you just grow out of.
me: not true.
him: i'm 40 years old, it would look ridiculous for me to be riding a skateboard.
me: no, calling the cops on some guys trying to have fun skating in a park that we pay taxes for is what is ridiculous.

You should have told him to put bindings on his board and try it again. No one could ever look ridiculous doing that.  ::) Maybe when he hit's his 50's he'll lose his mind and give it a shot.

^laff out loud. I had a guy today ask if we had "skidplates" so he could put them on his kids year old flip deck that had razor tail. How a blitz dist. deck has lasted a year, I couldn't tell you. Well yeah I could...the kids ten. I also had a lady come in and ask if I could take a look at her kid's rip-stick she had run over with her car. But still, this is off topic. I forgot what I was originally gonna say.

Dude, mountainboarders can bust anything bigger than skateboarders.  Just look at the picks that were posted here.  We do 12 sets like it was nothing.

Skateboarders just kick flip like little ballet dancers.

I dare any skateboarder to challange me at a skatepark.  You may laugh but you better stay out of my landing zone because I am a bad ass mountainboarder.  I will land on your little popcicle board and laugh when it snaps.

Oh, are you fellas talking about that creepy old guy on the funny contraption that looked sorta like a skateboard?

I've seen his type before. Once they're exposed for the bottom feeding cowards they truly are, they tend to run and hide.

I wouldn't worry about him anymore. Agent Pappas got his man, and the skateparks are safe again.........

Most things Bob Burnquist says about skateboarding will probably bum me out.

The neighbor girls used to yell at me when I was skating..."Do you know Tony Hawk?"  Etc.  It was just nice to get attention from girls.

On the Tony Hawk note...

I love how anytime my friends refer to a skateboarder it's always Tony Hawk, even if it's "or your going to grind that ledge like tony hawk right?". If they only knew...

They did say that I was actually good now, so that kinda cheered me up.

The last time I talked to my moms (about 3 weeks ago) she asked how my best friends wedding went. 

For his bachelor party, our homie with the indoor park hooked us up with a private session with all the closest homies.

I let her know how awesome it was to skate for 7 hours straight after 16 hours on the plane and in the car.

"Skating the night before his wedding!?!?!?!  You two need to grow up."  (I'm 23, he's 29.)

I let her know that there is a 47 year old dude that kills it at the park near my house.

"Yeah but what does he do?" she asked.

He's an engineer at Boeing.

That dude said it in the rip city trailer, and I couldn't agree more.  I too, look at people every day and wonder how they make it through life without skateboarding.

I wonder if my moms has ever had anything in her life that even comes close to what skateboarding has done for me.

Hang out outside the strip joint and lay down some phat beats. Wait for the strippers to come out and then start walking to the skatepark, you'll be just like the pied piper.


Title: Re: Most ridiculous thing someone has said about skateboarding

Mike Vallely, a professional skateboarder who lives in Long Beach, Calif., and has been a force in skateboarding for two decades, said how a skateboarder performs is deeply connected with how he or she looks. When skateboarders looks down at their feet, “they need to feel a vibe there,” he said in a recent telephone interview.

“I think skateboarding is more fashion than function,” he added. “It’s more aesthetic than anything else. It’s more rock ’n’ roll than athletics.”

Apparently skateboarding is about spending 20 years trying to look and act as violent and intimidating as possible and then, while appearing on one of the most widely broadcast events in the history of skateboarding, doing the most flamboyant and ridiculous tricks you can muster.

It's true there are no rules, but that ain't going to make me want to do the tricks you're doing.

graphics diversify the product portfolio of wheel companies which sell more wheels. we all know they will rub off in 2 days and the only real function they have is to tell us the size and durometer when we are buying them...but since they are putting that stuff on anyway, they add graphics that will hopefully catch our attention and get us to choose them over another brand.

the other day I was skating and some kid was wanting to check out my deck, so I let him take a gander at
it, he said his friend had the same wheels, so I said cool (they are spit classics), but then he
asked me if I had them on backwards, because the writing was on the outside.  I just chuckled and
said "come on now" and skated off

Half in, half out, so I know which side of the board is which most of the time.

I just always have put them like that, plus with the classics, it's got stuff on both sides
so I opted with the writing to have it look like white tires I guess. 

I usually paint something on the griptape to tell which end is which:

I use a different colored piece of hardware.  Well, it's actually just a newer piece, so it's shinier and stands out.  I put my wheel graphics on the inside because I generally don't like them.  Keepin' shit simple looks better.  Style points.  Yep.

every time one of my friends saw "circa" in a skate photo (e.g., 'circa 1992'), he thought it was a photog's name. he said  "damn, this circa dude seems to have taken all the sick photos back in the day". this is when he was in his mid 20s.









I laughed at him.











Because that's what friends are for.

I've heard some pretty ridiculous things when getting kicked out of spots by irrational middle-aged women, but this takes the cake.  My friend got punched in the face by his knee on this thing when he landed bolts on this.  We went back when his legs recovered from that session, the cops showed up, my friend booked, I almost got arrested, and the construction guy who called the cops on us was mad because he said 'the asphalt is getting dented.'

I should of popped over there and rammed my foot up his ass. And something else i don't like is how people call everyone posers. Being a poser is when your pretending to be something your not right?

Yea I hate that stereotype about skaters. I remember one day in high school a couple of guys came up to me and asked if I got "that" (If I sell any weed)
I wonder why (in my head) would they ask a random guy if he sell marijuana. Not until I
remembered what I was carrying: a skateboard















Skaters are predominantly(spell check) young white males who say "Yea brah!" and "Dude!" .

 I went to class , in college, with my skateboard and we have this really nerdy teacher who teaches us about digital circuits and stuff and he asked me if i could help him with a box of paperwork. I said alright and then he saw that i was carrying my board and answered "Can you do it?? Because you have your airplane with you".  I burst into tears from laughing.

 The other day we were skating a 3 stair to a horizontal ledge in a plaza that attracts lots of old people. After a few minutes one of them approaches us and says "Kids is there any problem with you why do you wanna kill yourselves?"

Doucher kid w/ a ripstick (addressing me & my kids who were all on skateboards, obviously trying to shine me on):  What's up?  Walmart boards?
Me (while skating away & ignoring/acknowledging him):  Nope.  One's a Real, the other's a Baker.  No bullshit for my kids.
Doucher:  Man, I haven't stepped on a 4 wheeled board since I got this thing like a year ago...

Time for me to start just going to park while ALL the kiddies are at school during the day.

I only skate 60 degree marble banks, but only if they are 3 to 5 feet high.
