  • people find that they can pick a skateboarder out of a crowd, different is wrong to the narrow minded so with the immidiate draw of attention the sport is already misrepresented. a long history of property damage and steriotypes dosent help much either, the skateboarder has become synonamous with drug abuse and rebellion\n\nBIG DUMB CHERADE born ugly magazine rob lee\n
  • older generations are experiencing the sport for what it has grown into.\npeople relate to whan the had a fishtail in the 80’s and stop and watch skateboarding when their flipping through the channels. or they look at those little kids breaking stuff outside of a shopping center and hate it\n

  • companies like zumiez and pac sun are here to cash in on the newest thing the youth is into, espn bought their way into the sport by creating a giant advertising cherade out of a vert ramp and a street course. the skaters have become well basically “a stock car” is what jay adams said to stacy peralta, stickers and logos pay your way when you sell out.\n

  • by putting on fashion show skateboarding contest companies are able to minipulte the clothing worn by their athletes and use them as billboards. companies like mountain dew and red bull appear to be investing heavily in the sport for its growth but their really just trying to milk the income while people still think skateboardings cool\n
  • different trends within the sport have brought different times for its image, in the 80’s a visually stimulating air show known as the vert ramp attracted viewers and enthusiasts from all walks of life mostly because of its flashy approach and glam metal style, guys like geoorge powell who wasnt even a skater, started companies.\n the 90’ s brought grunge and post punk into the scene creating a more layed back approach to filming and media exposure. guys like steve rucko and rodney mullen began to elbow in\n
  • when the skateboard hape trial and error was finally over it was realized that the ultimate shape would be a symetrical popsicle stick shape with a negative rocker in the design\n
  • i have a clip of the ollie being performed and i would like to walk you through the physics of this maneuver \n
  • the nose of the board allows for the front foot to apply pressure like a lever in turn raising the tail back up to meet the back foot after takeoff. on a board without a nose the ollie is an interesting task\n

  • the sport seems skin deep from the outside looking in, many remember the legacy of tony hawk just for his media envolvement and good nature. skateparks are always thought of as the go to thing for a skater but oddly enough itgs far from the truth. when a township builds a skatepark more than likely it will be abused vandalized and underused. the same area takes the soul out of creativity on four wheels\n
  • everyone knows there will always be bad apples in any group of individuals, skateboarding, well a little more so. drugs vandalism and loitering are all directly associated with skateparks when brought to the minds of those we need to plan and create them.\n

  • dosent matter how you dress, what board you skate, what you skate. if your out there giving your all any other true skateboarder already has respect for regaurdless of your ability level the unimportance of skateboard fshiobn and branding\n
  • the ever bustling city enviornment allows for skating to take itself to every nook and cranny of urban construction all the way to urban decay, like a sidewalk tile thats popped up from a water main break, instant skate spot. or it could be a beautiful marble ledge just screaming out grind me. these skaters are constantly harassed by inner city bacon and renna bacon\n

  • riot police fully suited were dispatched into the park several times, little ids getting tear gassed for skateboarding arrested, boards taken fined and brutally abused\n
  • skatings tough when you live in the middle of noware, a lot of rural areas are starting to build massive skateparks to bring culture and sport to the town and keep the kids out of trouble. but before that there was the vert ramp. a two walled ramp known widely from its popularity at x games. the ramp is built easily and has unlimited possibility which keeps a level playing feild for everyone who skates one.\n
  • the park is literally beautiful while the city is literally crumbling. the locals that skate rip and are great kids. the kids who lurk at the park and dont skate are dirty hoods, clear benefit for the community\n
  • skating vert or street was a good excuse for a while.\n“i dont skate vert” or i dont skate “street” would get you by but is becoming obvious that anyone with decent board control is ignorant for not skating everything. when the excuse is presented to me i just pity the narrow view of the person. as seen in the pictures above, bowls and staircases are becoming ne in the next generation of skating\n
  • unique styles are created from exposure to multiple types of skateboarding. when this can be created within one project you have a recipe for extreme skill and beautiful progression within the town and the sport\n

  • carlos biazza and a group of renegade skateboarders began the project with a giant wall that was written in the paper to be a giant intimidating bunker like structure.\n all concrete bought with raised money\nthe group effort is what keeps the drive alive\n
  • many skaters want to skate slowly, with percision lamely, and thats just fine but when theres a raging session at the park. and you wunna toots around a 3.2 mph your gonna get a bit of bs. dont hate the park or the skaters, hate your ability level\n

  • though it may be hard t understand and or document, with the amount of skateboard footage i have reviewed i can clearly see the distinction between a slow beat music taste and a hardcore music taste in a skateboarders style. a heavier effort into the perfection of a trick comes from a slower and more dialed approach to skateboarding. a punk rock approach just screams go fast and hold on tight\n
  • recently picking up drums i feel the same creative buzz wether playing or skating. wether it be my own music or skateboarding, its playing by my rule. \n
