The Skateboard Thread


Recommended Posts

JS kills it ... he just needs to chill and be a bit smarter if he wants to make it in the big show.

He has upset a few people with some young gun bullshit.

Landing established dudes signature tricks before they can at demos when he is in posse with said dudes.

 

Gay as that sounds ... its a bad look.

 

 

 

You'd have to be a whiny little bitch to get butt-hurt over something like that.

 

"Don't land my trick, bro!!!"

 

SMH

Yeah but if you are a famous "whiny little bitch" your opinion of a young guy coming up can matter to others near your rungs on that status ladder. Which can impact young guy not getting invited to come along for other events, etc, hence exposure outside of the Canadian scene.

 

I don't think anyone ever accused sponsored skaters of acting like mature adults. :confused:

In my experience, nobody likes a whiny little bitch.

There's always gonna be up and comers who are better than you.

The fuck they supposed to do, hold back just for you?

Your term "whiny little bitch" is distorting the thought.

 

If said pro is looked up to by most on the team, and new jack comes along and pops pro signature trick before pro can do it for the crowd. Pro makes a comment to the team, who are they going to back ... pro or new jack. How ethical or correct this is doesn't matter, it just is.

 

This isnt a bunch of homies having a random session. This is a sales driving moneymaking demo.

I'm done with this ... it was supposed to be a quick tidbit for Igloo ... not a breakdown of right and wrong with you.

I can't help but laugh at the idea of a signature trick and people thinking they somehow have dibs on it when they're skating a demo. Not arguing with you, since it's not like you're supporting the behavior, I just think it's completely retarded.

Like Chupa said, I'm not coming at you personally just the retarded mentality that you seem to be halfway sticking up for.

I think the bullshit I was talking about would play out different between different groups of people.

No snitching, on the group or where I heard the nonsense.

 

I don't see most people caring ... but obviously some are threatened by that behavior.

I was surprised to hear it, and since he is homies with Igloo I put it up here.

Normally I wouldn't spend two seconds on some silly industry gossip like that.

 

Funny how much people here are bothered by it. Almost a page of shit about it.

 

something else.

Word man, to each his own.

Sick video part. I love older footy. The skating looked like so much fun back then, none of the "standards" that you see in it today.

Not saying it's any less fun now though :D

Found this radness on Thrasher the other day.

 

"In 1975, the Central Arizona Project (C.A.P.) began with the goal to bring water from the Colorado River to Phoenix and Tucson via a series of canals. Wherever the canals crossed a river, huge 24-foot pipes were used. When I was in high school, we wrote the company that made the pipes (Ameron) and they sent us maps of the C.A.P. project, so we were able to find the different pipe construction sites and barge them. I carried my camera during those early years, and I'm now slowly restoring these historic pipe photos 30 years later.

 

I am just another vert dinosaur, sharing old war stories. I'm sure we all have some. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time. I was also a photographer and a crazed AZ desert skateboarder. Very few of us OG skaters are still skating. Life changes, the sport changes, people get hurt and stop. But I know many of us cannot give up skateboarding, for us it is more than a sport or a hobby, it is a way of life. Skateboarding will take you on adventures with your friends you will never forget, no matter how old you are."

 

Sincerely,
