i think if someones just manualing for like 30 seconds for no reason then thats boring if people at least do it in a combo like trick into a manual (preferably nose) and trick out or do it onto a grind then thats interesting

i guess entertainment only is sort of a loaded statement. sure. watching a good video is entertainment, but i think i meant more about appreciating all the technical aspects of it.  

i can see how a long manual could be boring, but i guess kids these days don't have an attention span long enough to be stoked on the skill. it seems it's only about what trick it is, and if it puts a smile on your face. not what it takes to actually pull it off.

yes i do. Which is why i described this topic in a interrogative way not just a statement. Oh and yes i said "to me" and "is it just me" ......not to get to technical or anything

well then no. i'm not tired of manuals. i guess i like to spend more time skating than analyzing who is doing what and how many times.
