Let me start this off by saying that skating is extremely technically difficult and the people who can do it well are skilled athletes. That being said, I find it completely unimpressive to watch. The airs and rails are so small in comparison to other sports, and even though I know it's really hard to flip a little piece of wood around with your feet I dont care at all if someone can do it. I love watching snowboarding, FMX, BMX, wakeboarding, and all kinds of sports I don't actually do, but skating to me is boring. I think it's beacuse pushing yourself around on little plastic wheels dosn't have the same feeling of speed and freedom as cruising down a mountain or riding a bike. And riding a skateboard for transportation is ridiculously unpractical in comparison to a bike or even blades. For these reasons I find it kind of surprising that skating is the popular public image of extreme sports, and dissapointing since I think most action sports are much cooler. For those of you who love to skate, keep having fun. That's just my opinion.
