I explained, as best I could, why longboards suck on The Classical.
“A popular New York City skateboarding blog recently speculated that, should a longboarder, coaxed onto First Avenue or any other busy street by the false sense of security that longboards provide their users, get killed by a passing vehicle, the City of New York might move to ban skateboarding from the street entirely—missing the distinction between longboards and skateboards, longboarders and skateboarders, with skateboarders getting the raw end of the stick.”
Which is why you don’t longboard in the city, you do it on the boardwalk or in the mountains. I’m down with both kinds of riding, they’re completely separate entities.
Longboards suck, longboarding sucks, longboard culture sucks, etc. Why anyone would willingly ride one is beyond me.
