1. your getting wayyyy too boaring and diluted...

2. youve got sellout fudge packing asswholes like shekler selling shit to you that you can buy and make your self for cents... RS penny wtf! wayyy too many companies selling the same shite over and over and over...

3. too many noobs and no skilled skatboarders showing what skatboarding is really about... weather it be usa or china.... in any country...

4. most of the public think that the sport is for little kiddies that have yet to reach university age... because  of the poor amount of skilled skaters not doing it because they love it but because they either have a shit home life or alot of time on their hands... i have however seen 1! skatboarder that actually could be the future tony hawk buut thats yet to be seen... only 12yrs old...

5. you need to get all the corporate companies and corney named skatboard co.s out and reinforce the concept of 100% skateboarder owned and run...

6. do better talent spotting and weed out the wanna be "kool kids"

7. if your going to skate then skate to prove that this is a athletic sport not some skinny ass emo with 0% muscle making dinch effort to avoid getting even more depressed and cutting them selves.

Cusack: Yay! A purist!

hehe yea thanks  Wink

as for the comment on the actual sport being DEAD ummm , if you mean that the PHASE where people actually took interest YES! it has come and gone, it is purely a participant sport that relies on you guys to introduce new none skatboarders into the scene in order to maintain the growth at a viable rate.. keeping it at a platau, fortunatly because of , like mentioned , people like tony hawk with his video game series things managed to start to look up for skatboarding... , and we dont have to worry about us as a sport becoming a small partipant sport anytime soon... and to suppress other extreme sports to mainatin the current numbers.

united with other extreme sports we can only become stronger, and solidfying our status as the 3 sports that are for some lifestyles and a profession.

respect ONE another and the same will be given..

I think skilled skaters were noobs before they had skills.

....actual sport.... participant sport...  us as a sport... partipant sport anytime soon...extreme sports....

repeatedly referring to skateboarding as a sport only proves to the rest of us that you are a kook.

I saw a BMXer do a double backflip once.  It was the only time I've ever been impressed by a BMXer.

3. too many noobs and no skilled skatboarders showing what skatboarding is really about... weather it be usa or china.... in any country...

That's why whenever I see a 10yo skater, I ask if he can switch heelflip a 7 stair bank. If not, I politely ask him to stop polluting my sport and then focus his board.
