Get down with your bad self

bailing over and over again, getting cut and bruised but still coming out the other side with a massive grin on your face when you finally land that trick you've put hours into
Skating is challenging yourself as much, or as little, as you want. You are the master of the feeling you get out of skating, whether it be learning something new and trying for ages to get it just right, or repeating tricks you already have down, getting them that bit faster or cleaner. I love that you can skate in different moods, and have a totally different skate experience to the last session you went out on. The people, the spot, and how you feel that day, influence what skating is each time we do it.
Cocking about on internet forums.
An anthropologist once said:
Skateboarding tends to involve self-destructive male human beings using a skateboard to take premeditated risks and build an inventory of muscle memory acrobatics involving the skateboard. In doing so they will tread a thin line between self-harm and creative rolling gymnastics. The normal skateboarder manages to sublimate his self-destructive urges by damaging his body in the controlled and accepted environment of the skate community while also constructing an artistic edifice (either lodged in the muscles as skill, or lodged in the internet as youtube videos of said skills). In this way the angry young man is prevented from destroying himself or others through the use of drugs and crime; and in place of that leads a creative and constructive life.
the sport of riding a skateboard.
And good fun.
