My problem with the stereotypical extreme sport enthusiast post #1
So yeah, I am stereo typing here, but if anyone has beliefs similar to the ones I have noticed please try to change.

1: Want people to be more accepting of the extreme sport lifestyle, but also feel offended when people are.
Reason 1: Want cops/pedestrians to leave you alone, but don't use provided facilities. Does not apply when no facilities available.
Reason 2: Use provided facilities, but upset by others who use the facilities to learn the sport and are very bad at it (newbs).

2: Forming factions against enthusiasts for other extreme sports (BMX vs. boarding/blading, boarding vs. BMX/blading, etc....).
Reason 1: These people are allies. They are after the exact same goal you are, so do not isolate yourself from them, join them and fight "the man". Friendly competition is good, but there are some near gang like groups forming in my area. Fighting each other only gets the cops more pissed.

I realize that there are few people like this, but if you know someone who is, smack them in the forehead with your old 1pc crank (what else is it good for anyway?).

Most of my friends skateboard or rollerblade.... and i BMX so it's fine, and i mix with skateboarders and bladers aswell, we aint enemys just the way some people have opinions when they first start BMXing cause they want to be "cool" but it aint true.

I must admit, only time i get angry with "the enemy" is when im in a park and there is some idiot skateboarder or blader who cant even stand up / go forward on their skateboards or rollerblades and blatently shouldnt be in a sk8 park, they should learn the basics first :)

but over all im not to fussed but where i live theres no such thing as bladers vs skateboarders or watever u want it to be, most people are all mates...

over and out

You say 'gang-like groups' fighting is bad, yet you tell us to go hit a fellow biker in the head with a 1-pc crank. Smoooth.

Not everything. Just that these people think preaching to some online message board will actually change something.

Hey, it is krustin. Really there is no point. I was just pissed. Some guy who boards was ripping on bladers claiming there is no skill. I have a good friend who blades, and I know there is skill there.

Beating the s**t out of someone is way different then fighting with them. Sometimes you give someone a good beating for their own good.

Blading doesn't take much skill just like BMX doesn't take much skill, unless you want to be good. There are probably more people in this country who can ride a bike than there are who can blade.

Can everyone you know jump with blades on, land and keep their balance? Can everyone you know grab..a grab would be equivalent to a bunnyhop.

Btw, stop riding Evans dick it's annoying.
