Comment on The street is to skaters what the ocean is to surfers by Laura.

Great article Rainer! I personally don’t think there is anything wrong with skateboarders adapting to new environments and using the streets as their canvas. This is half the thrill of skateboarding in a sense, making something out of nothing, conquering new and exciting tricks.
If skateboarders treat bystanders with respect and are conscious of the people around them I don’t see the problem.
I guess you can never really grasp the nature of skateboarding unless you have tried it.
I for one love skating, it’s freedom, it’s expression, it’s challenging and it’s fun. I think it’s a healthy hobby and we should be encouraging it … any sport is dangerous and that is precisely why we choose to conquer them, it’s all about personal growth.
