.otto.If i could i would transfer all my skiing skills to skate boarding. But that would probably only put me at kickflip level. Skating is so damn hard and i love it that it is. The almost limitless trick options is refreshing. To progress in skiing you just have to get ballsier and ballsier, and thats not nescecarlly true for skating atleast not as quickly
That’s so true. Skating requires waaay more skill than skiing.
I personally love how pure the talent pool is. Anyone can go out and buy a skateboard and become good at skating, which makes the playing field even. The same can’t be said for skiers. There are kids throwing dubs and trips who wouldn’t be doing so without the elite tampoline and airbag training that their parents pay for. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it makes it way harder for equally talented kids to get good when they don’t have the same opportunities.
skating>skiing. Even though I’m better at skiing than skating, I like skating better for the reasons I stated above. Skating has a less douchy attitude too imo.
