|there r tons of boarders here and i get along w/ all of them and never had one problem w/ me being on quads, very few inliners. they like rails and i go to bowls but there were a coulpe at my street park across the street. i got a lot of flack when i started by them asking me when i would get real/agrressive sk8s and they told me mine wernt good and mine suck, etc. now i never hear that. inliners at the bowls wax the bowl and make it dangerous for others since they only care about going pro and must have most slide. boarders dont like them. my bf spent a week cleaning one bowl, not fun. so i dont usually approach them unless they r nice, but there is good and bad in all groups. i hold no prejudice. i dont talk much to rink sk8rs either now. not interested in competing w/ who can have the most and most pricey sk8s on forums. rather talk about sk8n now. i have a pair of vert sk8s that do what i like to do now so i rather think about using them. most like to b negative that quads can sk8 outside and dont care to argue anymore there beliefs. they can thiink only inlines can sk8 outside but they r missing out. their loss.
: Claudine, I think geography has a lot to do with things. In some areas different types of sports are popular. I am guessing you live in an area where rink skating is popular and inliners have attitude. I currently live in an area where skateboarding is thriving. I don't see inliners and I am the only rollerskater at my park. Everyone is cool and it is a really great scene. I must admit that I am grateful to skate in a non hating environment. I think the inliners should get credit and there are some amazing skaters. I think the good ones should educate the groms and teach them the history of skating. I always say hi to an inliner if I see one because they are a product of rollerskating. If someone is cool, then I don't care what they are riding. I just took some video yesterday of the pros getting ready for the X Games and I think you all will like this stuff.
