SHRED 'TIL I'M DEAD


« on: February 28, 2012, 06:50:00 PM »

I love music and I love skating...I see a lot of people with headphones in while they're skating. I've considered doing it myself, but I wonder if it'll throw me off, not being fully aware of my surroundings, not hearing the sounds that my board, wheels, trucks make, etc...

Do you guys listen to music while you skate? Is not being able to hear a big deal? Do you listen go full power or keep the volume down so you just sort of have "background music"?

The sweet sound of urethane on concrete is the only music I need while I'm skating.

Nothing irritates me more than kids wearing headphones while skating in a skatepark. Well, maybe scooters and BMXers......but I have plenty of buddy's that listen to music while skating. You'll be standing right fucking next to them talking to them, by the time you finish saying what you have to say they pull out 1 head phone and say "What?"
And even more of a problem is when you're hauling ass to do a trick and there's some dumbass standing in front of the obstacle oblivious to you coming full speed at him or yelling for him to move because he cannot hear what's going on.

Call me old if you will........Good ol' fashion radio with ipod plug is the best way to go, then everybody is rockin to the same tune.

if you wear headphones while skateboarding by yourself cruising or whatever, that's cool.

if you wear headphones in a session, you are a stupid asshole with no respect for anyone else, and i fucking hate you.

 Wow...A lot of anger in here. Well, I guess I'll start off by saying that I try to be the most considerate person when I go skating. I'm not a self absorbed douche who gets in the way and snakes everyone. I skate, move out of the way, and wait my turn...I don't think that having some music playing is going to put me into a trance where I turn into a zombie and just stand around by the ledge and ignore people while they scream for me to get out of the way. I'm a good dude, you know?

And I'm not talking about when I'm with my friends...I go by myself sometimes (to the skatepark) and when there's nobody there that I know, I don't have to worry about people talking to me (I'm talking about low traffic times, when there's not really any other skaters there; when there are other skaters there, we always end up talking one way or another.)

I was just wondering if/how it had any effect on your skating...That's all. I went to the indoor park with my friend tonight and I twisted/landed on/jacked up my knee. Ouch.

Not really trying to project anger here but more express my frusteration out of personal experiences I have had at skateparks. I guess if you only have the volume up half way or at least so you can hear your surroundings it's ok. But I cannot count how many times (most of the time kids) cannot hear a word and when you get their attention to tell them something they look at you like you are in the wrong for saying anything if they don't ignore you completely.

I think you cant skate with music on high volume;music takes off you concentration. Every skater shoild be fully concentrated on the trick. Besides, you need to hear surroundings.
I skate with music but when its background. I can skate with music on high volume when I skate my board in the city and flat is good or I bomb hills.
