Preferred terminology.
So I've always been bothered by misuse of words in general and like to use every word in my vocabulary correctly but I'm wondering how you guys feel about it. So I'm gonna go over a few things that have bothered me. 1. Longboards being called skateboards. 2. It may just be me but I don't like to say I'm going skating I prefer the term boarding. 3. Being called a skater. I'm sure this ones really weird but let me explain. First is skateboarding and longboarding are really different. Second skaters are totally different from longboarders, at least I like to think so, like don't y'all think we are a lot more lax and chill while skaters are more high-strung and not quite aggressive or combative I'm somewhere between the line of aggressive and assertive. 4. I'm sure there's more things like this but I've lost my train of thought.

I think you may be thinking too much into this. People grow up in different parts and call it something different. Like where I'm from we say pop instead of soda. I don't care what you call it because in the end we all know what your talking about.
I skate on my skateboard cuz I'm a skater and I skate on my longboard and I ride my board...I'm lax and chill but some days I'm high strung and aggressive and even combative and assertive but none of that matters when my feet are on my longboard skateboard then it's just me and the deck.
Yeah thanks guys it's just me then. Guess I'm thinking bout this too much. I'll call it what I want to call it and everyone else can do the same but in the end we're all doing the same thing that we love to do. Cool thank you guys for your opinions. Keep the stoke going & stay Steezy bros!!!
@DanielSpazJames I agree with you on the first one. It's a longboard and a skateboard but I prefer to specify like a sniper rifle is a gun but it's not the only gun and not all guns are sniper rifles. You know what I'm saying
But that has to do with the fact that people are just ignorant to things that don't interest them and that's completely understandable, though it does still bug me.
