surfaceoutsidersThere aren't any rules to skatepark sports. I don't think scootering is that enjoyable to watch but I hate this dick measuring contest about what is harder or whatever. Let people do what they enjoy.
I shouldn't have brought up scootering lmao, I wanted this thread to be about skateboarding, I just mentioned scootering bc skateboarding in the Olympics could open the door to other popular skatepark sports, one of which is scootering.
It's not a dick measuring contest. Even the best scoot scooterers aren't really throwing down that hard generally. Like you would be pro doing similar tricks to bmx on a scooter even though it's way easier.
The big rise in scooter has a lot to do with them being easy to roll around on, and parents wanting to get their stupid kids out of their lives for a few. If the kid isn't cooordinated enough to do anything, hand them a scooter to roll around the park on.
Scooting isn't a sport. Unfortunately our society is too bleached in someways. You can't tell anyone to fuck off and parents let their kids do anything. There were always kids at skateparks, but at one point they had to watch out for the better kids. Now any 3 year old that gets dumped off by their mom on her was to the liquor store pretty much runs the park. Pretty sad shift.
