It's a way of life.
Without a doubt.

It's way cooler than any other "real sport" out there.
Just admit it.

We push the pavement with our foot, all across the city.
This beautiful city.

Born on the streets, raised on the streets.
Stoplights.
Concrete.
Stair Sets.
Gaps.
Hip Hop.
Loading Docks.
Curbs.
Kickflips.
Parking lots.
Blood.
Handrails.
Hessians.
Street life.
Family.
Homies.
Love.
Future.
Respect.

You might not like us.
We're cool with that.

We are a different kind of people.
We are skateboarders.
I'm a skater.
I enjoy skateboarding.
A hoodlum.
A street kid.

You laugh at me because I am different, but I laugh at you because you're all the same.

For life.

For all you little assholes out there that down skateboarding, FUCK YOU! Skateboarding is fucking insane, BMX is a sport skateboarding is a way of life. It's a relationship to, in order for it to work you have to be at one with the board. Any other sport is just something that anybody can do. Oh and one more thing for the fucking skaters that skate and call all the other skaters posers. Without posers skateboarding would be nothing because the fact that 99.5% of skateboarding things are made for the nonskater and .5% are made for the skater, and that without posers the people that supplie the skateboarding nation with shoes and skateboards would never make it.
Just think we were all posers at one time or another.
You have to start out somewhere on the skateboard

Skating, the best thing besides music. and when you combine the two, it's phenomenal. Skating, has the most profound impact on me. I skate not cause I think it makes me cooler, or to be accepted into a group of people. I skate because it's one hundred percent freedom. It's not a sport. If it was every one could do it. It's not like baseball, where you just hit a ball and run around bases to get point to win. There is no winning in skating. The only win is when you finally land that trick that you've been working on for hours,days,or even weeks. That's the best feeling in the world. I've been reading some of the other defintions, some of them are true. Others aren't. They bash on BMXers. And they shouldn't, now I dont BMX, but i can tell it's JUST as hard as skating.Anyways. People that don't get skating obviously hasn't seen the beauty of it. But hey, your having fun and their not. So it's all good. Skating is about striving to get better and having fun while doing it.Skating is not about skating for money,fame, and chicks. If your doing that then, fuck you.
Skater:You wanna go skate?

Doucher:yeah dude! i need to tre down that ledge, maybe that will get me close to being sponsored!

Skater:*punches Doucher in face* you just got pwned, N00B!

skateboarding=life.

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."

Stereo types aside, it's just a thing that some people like doing. Frowned upon by cops, business owners, and midle aged rich stuck up Bitchy women. You get kicked out of anywhere you can think off by just skating flatground.
HEY! THERES NO SKATEBOARDING HERE. YOUR DAMAGING THAT LEDGE!!!

But, we're skating flatground, though.

THATS IT, I'M CALLING THE POLICE!
