Sk8ing in Awesometown

August 14, 2010

Much to the dismay of our beloved City officials, the skating culture has been alive and well here in Awesometown for as long as I can remember. Sure we’ve got a pretty rad skatepark, but as far as skating around town goes, you’re gonna be hard-pressed to not see a sign that looks like this in any given parking lot:

Do I get why those signs are everywhere? Yes. Insurance sucks. Does it mean that skaters aren’t skating those lots? Nope. As far as I can tell from this video, it doesn’t even mean that they’re not skating down the halls of our high schools.

And to that, we say “bravo!” Not because you’re breaking the law (to that we’d have to give you a stern little “wag of the finger” [thx, Colbert]), but because you’re continuing to pursue an art form despite the possibility that you might get chased down by a third-party security company that’s bored and looking for something to do (to that you’d get a “tip of the hat”).

Carry on.

p.s. If you made this video, we sent you a YouTube msg. We like what you’re doing. XOXO. Kthxbai.

    Ha, I know them! I absolutely love the song choice in that video.
    I just can’t see any real skater obeying those signs. It’s like asking a filmmaker they can’t film because they don’t have a permit.
