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!
