freestyle skiing owes everything to skateboarding. you people are really pissing me off talking sahit about one of my two favorite things. flowing a good skatepark is just as good as shredding deep powder. skateboarding, however, is about 50 times more technical, and you will definitely get hurt because even something as little as a pebble will fuck you up. skating rails helped me learn to ski rails, as strange as that sounds. and the same goes for spinning. fuck haters. i couldn't choose between these sports if my life depended on it.
and fuck you, this is not the 80's, and skateboarding is the second most popular "sport" in the world. not just us privellaged kids can enjoy it.
Once upon a time I heard that the searchbar was cool..
Longboarding is the shit. Just like rollerblading was tight, skateboarding was tight. Now its all about longboarding.
My opinion, dont hate
you are definately right, it seems like it used to be so much more popular and was something everyone did. even when everyone else stopped, i continued. i think its funny because all the kids who did it when it was "the cool thing" come up to me now and are like why didnt you quit when everyone else did? and i have to explain that i do it because i enjoy it.
Wow, so much ignorance in one thread
