A big part of skateboarding is style and flow. If you push mongo, you haven't got any. It also holds people back from getting some tricks.

People seem to be divided on pushing mongo going fakie vs switch pushing. I'd personally rather push switch, fuck it up and do it again than fakie mongo push.

People hate on mongo pushing because plain and simple its just gross and annoying to look at. It also hinders set up time and is just not functional. I think there is more leeway for switch, but still frowned upon.

I don't think anyone hates mongo's it's just that no one wants to see them.

They're ugly and deserve to be ridiculed.

You should only be allowed to push smongo (switch mongo) if you are not sponsored. That's my rule, all of the oldschool skaters are grandfathered in.

All I'm saying is that if you push mongo you deserve to have your board stolen and have your mother fucked by some random homeless dude in your bed, that's all nothing more. Sounds justifiable to me...

It just looks kind of funny.  I do have a friend who pushes mongo, but he's a beast so its hard to really knock him for it.  He even admits that its funny, but can't get over doing it.  Switch mongo just seems kind of pointless.  You are still going backwards, you are still going to feel a little awkward, so just learn to push the other way and trade up the work for your legs and the wear on your shoes already.

I still push mongo. Kinda funny I didn't know I was doing anything weird when I started skating in '95. Later when I started skating regularly with my friends, they mad fun of me but it was too late for me to change by then. I guess I'm just retarded. LOL
