Anyone notice that some guys on here are snobs?! There's guys that love riding longboards and guys that just love the sound of there own voice and the "my opinion is the right one because it's mine" guys. I don't profess to be the fastest stylish or anything when I post a card about me so why do some people feel the need to tell me I should do this or should do that or I'm doing it wrong. Unless I asked if I'm doing it wrong I don't give a fuck! I'm having fun n that's what counts! There's nobody "better" than the other just different maybe but that's what makes us so unique. Some people need to live and let live and if they have that much spare time to criticise other people on there choices then it's obvious there missing something out of there own lives to take time out to criticise others. Let's love live laugh dance sing skate surf and whatever makes you smile because that's what it's about. Where all here for a good time! Not a long time!
maybe some of them are just trying to give you some helpful advice although it doesn't come across that way, plus some people are just assholes
The top percentage of people who know the most about longboarding or anything else for that matter tend to come off as snobs. I think there is definitely a difference between giving advice and being a snob, that all has to do with how you present the information to someone and whether they are looking for advice in the first place. I agree that we can all just be nicer to each other so we can better enjoy talking about what we love, longboarding.
Girls just gotta skate harder to prove the boys wrong.
Preach it.
@mpblete That's a good point and something we should address. I know from experience that girls shred, but I do see the negative stereotypes associated with girl skaters/longboarders. I think it would do us good to equal the playing field and not associate skill level with gender at all, and not associate skill level with value to the community. Everyone is part of the community here and no one is more deserving than another.
