Me and @BrandonTremmel were in a parking lot of a tire center, and we were staying in one corner of it (doing some slides) and this guy walks up to us and says we can't "skateboard" here because they don't want to be blamed for any "accidents". First of all, we weren't in the way of anyone or anything, and second of all, we have longboards. Nobody really cares until that guy arrived. That parking lot corner was sloped, so we could get some good speed. So our fun was ruined. :(
I found a church parking lot that is basically like a giant bowl. It is so much fun and at one corner you can get enough speed to slide. And they don't care that I skate there.
1. Its a liability issue, legally they are responsible for what occurs on their property and in the event of an injury, they are basically liable. 2. Longboards, skateboards, it doesn't matter. Were all doing it for the same reason. We all love to do it. Thats all. 3. At that point, you just respect what he says and leave. There are so many spots out there, it's just up to you to go skate and find them.
We left like he told us, but he was a dick about it
Whenever I hit a private spot I usually do like two runs and dip out of there so my spots r never compromised
All they said was to leave, not to never come back. :)
