|robert, heres just a recent example that popped up on todays posts of why i am not so interersted in rapping w/ rink sk8rs. here they are dissing most of our boots telling new sk8rs that anything below a 595/695 is crap. we seem to b rollin ok on carerras and 265s but unless u like to argue, i would let it be..
: 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.
