    Default Skating vs Skateboarding

    which is better/more appealing to you? I was wondering like aside from Parkour what other just cool ways are there to get around. I rather like skating over skate boarding because when i see people like the Yasutoko brothers or Dustin Latimer (search on youtube) it just fills me up with strange feelings of envy. I liked skateboarding for a while but only because of Bob Burnquist and Rodney Mullen... both of whom ive not seen in quite a few years. I remember playing Tony Hawks Pro Skater 4 when i first got my ps2 and watching the Rodney Mullen skate vid and it just blew my mind. He's still one of the greatest athletes ive ever seen, his skill on flat land is unrivaled. However skating seems just to be more free in respects of people interacting with the environment and personally i like it more... what say you?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Bicycling, it's not like it really requires you to use your hands either (when the conditions are marginally good)...and it's better at climbing and rough terrain.


    But if I have to choose between the two, skating, I don't know how to use a skateboard.

    i think Skateboarding > Skating
    i still like both, but i guess since you can get around a lot easier when you skate is a plus, but i'd prefer skateboarding more.
    Street Fighter > All

    Scooter, but that's not what was asked. I'd say skateboarding, since I never could skate properly. Even if I could, I think I'd choose skateboarding.

    it depends on where you live, because i can assure you that it is a pure pleasure for me to overtake all the cars with my bicycle when i go to school
    Cars are fun though, outside of the town

    but back to the subject, i would be ready to try skating more than skateboarding for the simple reason that it's a pain in the ass to have to carry the skateboard every now and then :P
    And i'm sure Yotsuba would find skating to be cooler

    I like skating because I have more hope at it: I couldn't be bothered to practice enough (and break enough bones) to get good at skateboarding, whereas it seems to take less effort, and way less injuries to get to average at skating. ^_^

    Skating is better. This way you can also play street hockey.
