the only thing wrong with skateboarding is that too many kooks worry too much about it.

The tighter pants that I have been forced to wear in order to represent myself within society as a skateboard person make my penis stick to my leg.

That's a problem.

 The problem is that  when something is underground ,like skateboarding used to be,  few kooks are into it ,cause its not cool for the masses so people that truly love it spend time on this. However when it becomes mainstream a lot of kooks get attracted because its cool for the masses. The worst thing is when kooks succeed in doing something cool for the masses realise that they fail to be different from other kooks so thats when the CORE thing comes up....

^ She found the true meaning of "fruit basket." I find that pic to be a little disturbing. Kinda bummed I didn't vote for him. I voted Duffy 'cause I find his Arnette ad to be more disturbing.

I saw a gang banger pushing mongo on his way to the liquor store. I couldn't figure if that meant skateboarding was raw or dead. I got my fingers crossed for dead


Purist need to understand the impurity of skateboarding, without it we would all be chopping down trees to press our own boards. From what I gather everyone on this forum lives in a country with a free market democracy, which means money decides on what we can do and receive. If you don't like how something is going don't give your money to it. Skateboarding has gone through so many suicide attempts in the past and some of the people here have skated through all of them, most of us will skate through the next one. If you see something wrong in Skateboarding laugh at it, ignore it and it will go away, it's called a market correction. Support what you love

I hate calling Skateboarding a sport.


I understood at the time I wrote this that it was futile to give any response to the kooks; I just wanted to see how many times I could quote it. This doesn't count this is a pre-quote so I can find it easier

Skateboarding is fine. Between Freddy Gall's mangina and the Mongos Locos, were right where we need to be. lol

If you are referring to all the other fuckery (boring ass street league, shoe contracts, shitty media depictions, mall shops etc.), then none of that was skateboarding to begin with.

go out and do hoodrat stuff with your friends on a skateboard. have fun and stop worrying about the dumb shit.

I would like to submit my evidence that skateboarding is, in fact, dead. 

In the past week I have had two separate instances in which I was skating on public property and a police car showed up and the officer never even bothered to get out and talk to me.  One instance was at a school that was closed for the weekend.  A police car cruised through the parking lot, driving by twice with me skating in plain sight, and left without coming back.  The other instance was at a park at night.  A police car pulled into the parking lot and used a spot to hide and clock people coming down a hill which was about 20ft from where I was taking advantage of a few banked accessibility ramps under a street light.  I kept at it and he never bothered me in the 45 minutes he was there and didn’t even drive by on his way out.   

This indicates to me that skateboarding is dead and has pussified to the level that there isn’t an automatic assumption that the presence of a skateboard infers that I am looking for a place to hide a body and scratch my gang affiliations. 

Given the above, I am happy that skateboarding is dead as fuck.   As skateboarding writhes in its death throes, more and more shreddable concrete seems to roll itself out in front of me.   Granted I have seen more skatestoppers on public property than I care to recall but that’s another topic.

"I always wondered if people who parkour get kicked out of spots as much as a guy with a skateboard does..."

I contacted my local police department and this is the list they gave me in terms of priority for kicking people out. 

High priority perps:
- Men wearing nothing but trenchcoats and dress socks
- Skateboarders or anyone wearing a shoe lace belt

Medium priority perps:
- Homeless people
- Breakdancers

Low priority perps:
- People with mustaches
- Parkour experts (classified by: rolling, tumbling or jumping inappropriately)

They represent the culture of it but don't actually skate.  That's the problem. They just use it to try and look ''cool''. and a lot of people like that who actually do skate suck horribly at it

since when does element represent the culture (barf@ "culture of skateboarding," btw.) of skateboarding (or for that matter "look cool?")? and since when did you have to be good at skating to enjoy it?


you sound suspiciously like one of those PURISTS i keep hearing so much about.


Title: Re: What's wrong with Skateboarding? (official thread)
Post by: lopli on March 19, 2011, 11:33:39 AM
I never said Element represented the culture. And i agree, you dont have to be good at skating to enjoy it. I'm not too good myself honestly. I was just saying, it gets kind of old going to the skatepark and seeing kids there and they don't even do anything. The last time i went to the skatepark there was these kids down there who didn't even have boards, they just found a trash can lid and slung dirty water all over the place.

I never said Element defined the culture of skating. i think you misunderstood my post. What i meant was, theres kids out there who use the concept of skateboarding to look cool, and a lot of them wear element gear, because it seems to be the skate brand everyone knows about because of people like Bam[nothing against him, i like him a lot, just saying]. And well, frankly i dont like that.

so it bothers you that there's a bunch of dudes hanging around the park who are not skating?  i'm ok with that as it means i have the park to myself.  do you really have to only wear "skater clothes" to prove that you skate for realz?  no.  it's funny how "purist" skaters find this annoying. do you think fighters say that the dudes who just wear tap out shirts are ruining MMA?

I asked this local ripper what he thinks of Dylan Rieder (my man crush, not afraid to say it) and he told me he tries way too hard to act like a hard ass. He specifically said "the way he talks while he's smoking his cigarette in this video just pisses me off". I like the fact that Dylan has this fashionista subculture with his aesthetic and I can relate to him because that's pretty much how I've always dressed.

I'm not a grimey park rat that listens to wu tang and wears baggy clothes but I can damn well appreciate the guys who are but this kid can't appreciate the opposite. Stop hating skaters for how they do things if they do them well.

They realized they could make money? Just ignore it. Better yet, embrace it for what it is. Yeah it sucks that these guys weren't really around from the get go, but whatever. They sponsor some pretty down to earth dudes and some kooks, just like any other "skate" company. Bottom line is they make it so people can do what they love and still make decent money.

Yeah, yeah...skateboarding shouldn't be about the money, but it is. I admit I was a little perturbed when NikeSB started showing up everywhere, fuck it, money rules the world my friend. Best thing you can do is not buy into that shit, support local companies, and just skate. Bottom line: just do what makes you happy.

i kinda gotta agree with snot ramp bombs^^ i bought my vans from a place called mervyns cuz they were cheap and i was in my early teens. so affordable shoes are great even if they are from somewhere like target,even if the quality of the shoes aren't top notch

It sucks that those places compete with skateshops though. I would assume, that if skateshops could move a ton of skate shoes to skateboarders and DC-wearing non-skateboarders, they could sell them pretty cheap to kids too.


Title: Re: What's wrong with Skateboarding? (official thread)
Post by: bob on April 19, 2011, 07:15:22 PM
very true, but for all those people that don't skate but still wear shoes like vans, dc, globe, osiris, or other such shoes, it is way easier for them to go to the mall than to look up their local skate shop. i've witnessed first hand a shop i considered a second home fall victim to the invasion of mall shops like zumiez even though he sold the same shoes as the mall store for significantly cheaper. the point of my long rant being is that ven if a core shop sells for cheaper, the mall goons don't care enough for it to matter

Where i live skateboarding is not popular like in the US. We may not have many parks but almost no one gives a fuck about us skating in the street or street spots. If someone tells anything we tell him we got the right to skate anywhere we want as we dont have many parks. Yeah dead skateboarding has some advantages too. Plus less popularity less jocks.

ED's so amazing but unfortunately it is true what he says. It ain't us it is "them". Seriously, there are only a few brands out there who are not owned by a multi-corporation asshole trying to sell us skateshoes while on the other hand he sells motherfuckin eastpak and wrangler stuff (just look up vf corporation and what they did to vans). I don't even blaim it on the sheckler's and all these dickheads because the fact is that if you couldn't earn a fat ass bank accounts with skateboarding there wouldn't be any sheckler's. Plain and simple. New kids in the game should try to look beyond what's on their shirt, shoes and boards. Supporting true brands which focus only on skateboarding (and not surf, snow, bmx, lifestyle shit) means supporting skateboarding. I'll tell you what's wrong with skateboarding: too much dickheaded companies.

i don't really care if the vans parent company puts cowboys in wranglers (or whatever), just as long as they keep putting vans on my feet.  but it sure would be great if there were less company's putting out skate stuff so that less kids can get one and start skateboarding.

I live in Norway, skateboarding is not very popular here, mostly because Norway is as far up north as almost possible, so it's more winter (with snow) than summer here. If you ask a random norwegian youth if they know what the berrics is, or what street league is, I think you will find the answers dissapointing.

The skateboarding brands what-so-ever is very popular, when it comes to clothing and shoes very many wear DC, Volcom, Nike SB, Fallen, Vox... you name it. And you find quite some skateboardshops around the country.

But what the hell am I talking about, I was really answering "what's wrong with skateboarding"? I think nothing's wrong with skateboarding except it's not big enough! I fucking hate soccer, tennis etc., I want more skateboarding, FMX, BMX and such on the TV here in Norway, and in the rest of Europe. Skateboarding has to expand, and no matter how big it's going to be, non-pros will always enjoy skateboarding as an hobby beside work and family-life. Skateboarding is the number one hobby and lifestyle I think anyone can have. It's creative, good exercise and awesome both alone and together with awesome friends.

The problem with skateboarding isn't that it's gay.  It's okay to be gay.  It's that it isn't rollerblading.  I mean just look at that shit: Vine Gang (http://vimeo.com/29929799)

Why would anyone want to skateboard after seeing that?  It's kinda like if you had only celebrated Easter, but then you started celebrating the 4th of July after seeing fireworks for the first time.  Why would you even care about Easter any more?

About a half a box of tissues into it I started to feel a little hetero guilt when I noticed one of the ladies had what appeared to be a mustache. 

Aggro, could you ask your friends to wear blonde wigs in the next video?  Some of them looked kinda like dudes and it ruined my whole vibe.  Thanks

Wait a minute. “ Pornography for cowards” is more along the lines of women's Olympic beach volleyball, Telemundo (around lunchtime) or Golden Girls.  This shit is the hard stuff as my experience last night will attest.  My wife walked in on me partaking in “Vine Gang” while I was full on pants-to-ankles.  She entered the room unbeknownst to me,  I heard her scream and as the sound of her purse hitting the floor fills the room she yells; “Mother of Odin and all things holy!  Stabby Richard McShiv!  What is this filth that you have brought into our home?!?.”  She then stormed off and won’t look me in the eye.

Thanks for nothing Aggro, you smut peddling temptress.

When I was in highschool my older friend told me that in Vancouver all the best skaters did ecstacy before skating, because it made everything slow down and you could pretty much land any trick that way. So I guess that could be another mode of becoming amazing at skateboarding. Just look at me - never tried it, never went ultrapro!

What I'm suggesting is - the problem with skateboarding is the lack of any substantial drug intake by the average skateboarder.

Skateboarding is what you make of it...I don't care what anyone else is doing when I'm skating. I'm there to have fun and that's what I do. Sure there's been times when some little kids snake me, or get pissed off and throw their boards when they don't land a trick, but I just chuckle and go about my business.

The new "styles" used to get on my nerves a little bit (skinny jeans, funny hats/sneakers/etc...), but one day I had an epiphany...I said to myself, "Who the fuck am I to say these kids look funny? When I was their age, people used to give me the stink eye for wearing super baggy cut off jeans and shit, punk t-shirts, and so on...I don't want to be one of the people that I hated when I was a kid. Let them do what they want." I won't wear that stuff, but I won't judge anyone else for expressing themselves.

Your saggy old ballsacs probably get all scuffed up dragging across your grip tape. 

Oh and pass the Metimucil, better bulk up that stool before you have an embarrassing "oops" while you're out grinding a ledge.  Don't worry one of the other geriatrics probably has some coupons in their Buick if you need to get more.

Pokémon up, bitch!

Thanks, Susej. I know you are as pissed off as the rest of us are at the old kooks wasting space at the parks. "Ohhh Look at me, I can do a Boneless and I remember that one Thrasher cover with the Bones Brigade."

Well, old dudes.. Boneless' suck!  If they were a legit trick you could use it in SKATE, and who really gives a fuck about the Bones Brigade, they were so over rated. There's a million young REAL skateboarders that could kick their asses in SKATE.

I agree man, Nyjah is due for SOTY. That dude just screams steeze. I think it was bullshit that Grant Taylor won this year. Grant skates too fast and doesn't have anywhere near the amount of steeze the Nyjah does.

Grant's the most overrated skater in a tie with Mark Gonzales and John Cardiel. All three are soulless. I understand Cards and The Gonz are old, it goes without saying they have no soul. They are gimmicky old fucks that never really understood real skateboarding in the first place.  I'm not sure what Grants problem is... he's still young, that's all about all he has going for him. He's still soulless, blowing it and I doubt he'll ever have the steeze of Nyjah or Chaz.


Title: Re: What's wrong with Skateboarding? (official thread)
Post by: Teds Wild on February 08, 2012, 02:34:20 PM
If you think Grant is still young at 19, why isn't he young enough to win dewtour? Raven Tershy is the youngest soulless skater, but at least he wins the xgames.

Ben Rayburn that guy skates like he's old. Might as well be 30 that old fart.

YOU'RE OVER THE HILL BEN! TIME TO GIVE UP AND GO BACK TO THE OLD MAN SQUAD (1031)

The great thing about Chaz and Nyjah is they've always been getting paid to skate. They never had to skate in the street That's why they've got so much better style then Gonz and Cardiel, 'cause they've always been skatin those perfect contest courses.

I'm thinking about sending my footy to 5 Hour Energy they be payin in buckets of duckets!

This one time I was grinding in the 50 50 stance down this down ledge, and my front truck came off a little bit, for the back feeble variety, and I called it a combo. Is that what's wrong with skateboarding?

Actually, the biggest problem in skateboarding is drugs and alcohol. There's not enough for everyone to be fucked up, all the time. There's a band called fucked up. My friend likes them. He thinks they're great. I think they're okay, but I like Carnifex better. Not to skate to. Too heavy. It's better to skate to Black Sabbath. Is that what is wrong? All these new bands trying to sound like black sabbath? I stole that one from Sieben.

When you're a hermit you struggle to find food and shelter. When you can't find food and shelter you die. You don't want to die, do you? Just say no to skateboarding.

there is nothing wrong with skateboarding.  if you have to ask this question then you shouldnt be skating.
all the moms that are worried that their kids are skating and hanging with the wrong crowd, that is bullshit.  As soon as the kids stop skating, that is when you should worry.  skating is the best thing your kid can be doing.  its when he/she quits skating and gets into drugs and alcohol and crap.  A wise man (JEFF PHILLIPS) once said, "'I skate for fun and that's it, and if I don't have fun you'll see me quit"

What the heck? Do you mean like breaking shit or just skating causing damage at spots? Cuz it's usually some weirdo getting pissed off about the ledge in front of their building getting scuffed. Alternatively, there are liability issues. What skateboarders are vandalizing beyond the necessary waxing, grinding or sliding? I don't know any...

what a poor attitude

this is a country with some of the most beautiful architecture and hard work put into some buildings and kids fuck it up and have no respect for the vandalism

based on this karma you'll either
a) never own any property in your life
b) seriously injure yourself during vandalism
c) get law enforcement to penalize you
d) all of the above

I'd rather all of those come true and still skate. Then I'll die, bummer. I hope this country won't miss me. Which one is this country again, and why are you on a skateboard message board? Also, karma isn't for real, it's just a human word and idea.

Considering though, that I don't buy Waldron's argument, really, most of us are not necessarily rightful owners of our properties anyway. I realize American philosophy was founded largely on Locke, but his theory of property rights is pretty questionable as well. Why not make art? The ledges and rails won't last forever... Skatevideos already sometimes outlast some if the spots they're filmed on.

Further, I'm into a lot more than cruising. I'm saving that for retirement. So our perspectives differ greatly.

Hello Thrasher Forums. It's been a while.

allow me to preface by saying I don't have much of a problem with mainstream companies in skateboarding. However there is something wrong with this picture in my opinion.

so you're a long boarder?  cause that's not skateboarding.  that certainly doesn't sound like anything someone who reads thrasher would say. and don't waste your time on these boards trying to convince us otherwise.  you are a fucking loser if you feel bad for vandalizing a building that's owned by say, BP oil.  not a single one of those companies out there are doing anything to contribute to skateboarding, yet they condemn it.  fuck them.  they make enough money to paint a fucking rail. 

and for the record, i own my own home and cars.  you don't grow out of skateboarding.  it's down for life, or quit and start longboarding.

When I grow up and learn to be appreciative, I hope I can learn to use this highly mature form of communication. I think it's ingenious how you quoted this phrase, but what do you mean by doing so? If only I could understand your exceptional mind!

Anyways, anybody I've seen who's into 'cruising' rather than actually skating does damage to the image of skateboarding more than anybody street skating. Completely out of control on the sidewalks getting in people's way, falling off their board, mall grabbing around town, occasionally trying to impress someone with a shuvit that they fail deplorably at, their board shooting off into a group of passers by or into the street.

Personally, I try to be pretty respectful. I get off my board so as not to scare old ladies, I try to respect the position of cops and security but also to explain my reason for skating; I leave when asked. Snow and wind do more damage than I do...

To many corporations are into skateboarding that really should not be in the first place. Thats my thoughts on it but I guess if you have the money to pay your way in I guess it helps out fellow skaters so maybe its not so bad. what do you guys think?

I honestly don't have any real gripes with the way it's going.
It's cool at the moment, I'm really liking what Heroin, Deathwish and the whole Bakerboys teams are doing.

My only gripe is that it's fucking winter over here and there's no indoor parks.

There is so much wrong with skateboarding, It has gotten so bad I don't even tell people I skate because I don't want them to classify me with these gay long boarder kids that do it because they think it's cool. Skateboarding use to be a under ground rebellious thing were were people skateboarded for skateboardings sake, now in days kids skate just to get sponsored or just to be popular, skateboarding has gotten too main stream and I have heard there is people trying to get it in the Olympics!? Forget that keep skateboarding a crime

No one watches Skatersatlas.com videos. They are the shit, and I tried to get my friend Matt Phipps who started that shit to do some SEO stuff so that more people would see his amazingly professional website, but He is too busy traveling the world to a different scene in a different country each month to create an incredible expose' of it, while being sponsored by a TV station in Austria. Check it bitches, then tell twenty people to do the same. Honestly, it is the hottest, most underground skateboarding shit going on. Recognize

Yup, this is what's wrong with skateboarding.   Amazingly professional but you could at least learn to read.   Maybe not post a video in a thread titled "What's wrong with skateboarding".    If you do you look like a ten year old kid at a skatepark that has whiplash everytime he lands a trick because he had to see if someone saw it.

Post this shit in the "Footie" thread....stoops

The majority of the people nowadays skate cause its "cool" fucking so many people skate cause they think its the shit and don't know anything about skating besides what a kick flip and an ollie are. Im a little 15 year old kid who breathes skating and I know my fucking skate history. Im not some dude who loves to watch the "New NYJAH huston video filmed all in HD because the better quality the camera the better the filming" no I fucking love to see the old skate vids like thrill of it all and photosynthesis! Long story short, skate cause its fun and realize where we came from

Skating doesn't involve vandalism. At all.
Cruising is not skating, that's long boarding.
These forums are not for cruising; it's for chill talk with people who perform tricks on skateboards, not who cruise and "vandalize" property.
