Im not here to convince you that skateboarding is good or bad. I'm just going to tell you my story, and leave you to draw your own conclusions. Even though it may sound played out, skateboarding truly is a way of life. I get the illest vibe just skating down the street, cruising. The long summer days and endless nights spent with your boys at your favorite spot, just skating. Every stressful thought, all your concerns and sadness dissapear as you become the happiest person in the world, steadily skating with a grin on your face. its days like this that stick with me forever. every ledge is butter. all your tricks are crisp. Laughing with your friends with a boombox, skating untill the sun goes down. It didnt matter what you wore, wether it be tight shirts or baggy pants. wether you listened to punk or hip-hop. We were skaters. we were all united by one thing: our passion for fun, and our love for the game. People look at us like were from a different planet, quietly wondering how we can have so much control over anything with only our feet. They dont understand, and shoot us with nasty looks, but we know better. just keep skating and life will play out for the better. Just know that if you keep pouring your efforts and energy twords it, it will return the favor. Looking back on the years spent, its beautiful to recall the nights spent focused on nailing that trick. nothing else mattered. And once you landed it, you just smiled and moved on to the next trick. then maybe next week you took it down some stairs. people watch and recognize the vibe. some get it. some dont. it doesnt matter. skateboarding is the richest and most beautiful journey if ever traveled, and is accountable for some of my fondest memories.

An extreme sport that not any pansy can do as some fuck head said a few pages back, a sport that anyone can do however, is bmxing, remember, as a 7 year old your mother would ask you to ride your bmx down to shop to pick up some milk? Every fucking person in the world can ride a stupid bike, compare that to the amount of people who can even stand on a skateboard, let alone ollie up a kurb, LET ALONE KICKFLIP TAILSLIDE!

Any one can launch off a lump of dirt on a bike, cause the bike does all the work, but just ollieing on a skateboard is some pretty complicated physics shit that like less than 10% of the world can do.

Skateboarding is not a free ticket to being a cool rebel with chicks on both sides, it's only the best sport, artform or whatever you wanna call it, in the world.

And not all skaters are punks, most punks that I've seen just use a skateboard for transport but there are some awesome punk skaters out there. The majority of real skaters just dress casual or even gangster. I would never wear tight jeans cause loose clothing is so comfortable, but thats me.

Wow I really wanna go skating now, better wrap this up,

Skate for life!
Skateboarding:

Skater: "Im skating on a previously broken ankle, about to head up to buy a new deck, hopefully my pay came through."

BMXer: "My grazed knee is rubbing against my jeans, I'm gonna sit down for a while, My mum bought me this bike but shes not gonna buy me a new one if this one breaks so it better last."

An extreme sport performed by extreme people. Takes alot of practice, commitment and quite often temper (especially when your skatepark is filled with children and bikers)

And why do people think skaters are bad people? Is it cause of the sport we love? The clothes we wear? The things we say?

Do they say the same about bmxers? No, and the only difference between us and them is they rest their genitals on a clumsy piece of bent metal with two wheels! Oh yea, and they're annoying cocky assholes who take up too much space in skateparks.

I probably wouldn't have just said that had I not seen what they say about us here.

The point is, Skateboarding is an awesome life long adventure with so many rewards along the way, no matter what rate you progress at.

Roll Forever!
Skateboarding:

Skater 1: "Hey man, oi I just kickflipped the britomart 8 yesterday!"

Skater 2: "Sick! You wanna head up there and film it? I might try it too."

BMXing:

Biker 1: "Hey dude, I just found a lump of dirt yesterday!"

Biker 2: "Rad! You wanna head up there and film it? I might try it too."

1)NOT A SPORT

2)The only way into heaven, everything else youve been told is a lie.
That guy doesnt know how to skate therefore he does not know about skateboarding which insinuates he does not exist at all, he is only a faint illusion with-in one's vast immagination.

skateboarding started in the 70's misunderstood by common folk not many people will respect it till they try it. takes a lot of balls and determination i had to write an article to the local news paper because they labelled all skaters in our town annoying and trouble makers yeah right. stereotype
my grandad nailed a 2x4 to some old wheels in the 60's

dude lets go skate, dude i totally did that im stoked.
my favourite skaters are geoff rowley , ali boulala, and andrew renolds i love skateboarding

Skateboarding is an art form extremely difficult to perform. Its not a sport, even though there's "balls" involved. Those who can, do. Those who can't, rollerblade and then talk smack! Wow, how cool their little booties look on their feet as they hop and skip around. Since when has putting skates on your feet and "exercising" around the park ever been cool?
Yo dude, I was skateboarding my arse off, pullin' off some insane moves in front of the Betty's down at the park, when this douchebag rollerblader swung through being pulled by a gay guy on a 10 speed bike. I think he was asking if he could pull him into town for some free lessons in being a cage fighter.
