    I wish I could skate board but it’s really hard because I live like 8 miles out of town out this valley and my driveway is gravel. The only place I could really skateboard is in my garage. If anyone cares

    Hey Glasses*: How does skateboarders in the 90s make skaters in the 2010's and soon the 20's look bad?? I started skating in 98' and I can tell you it was worse then that movie. "Lessons could've been learned" that's the thing. They WEREN'T learned. Today and even starting in the late 00's ppl have gotten a lot softer (some nicer but most softer). In the late 90's and early 00's it was very common to call or be called a Fag or Faggot or "don't be gay". You wouldn't dare hear that today. And Jonah wanted to keep the movie as authentic and gritty as possible which he kinda failed on. It was a little soft. He should've taken a cue from the movie KIDS.

    I just started skating like last year I got one for my 14th birthday. Recently I got a longboard, I think I enjoy my longboard better because I can cruise but I mean I got my skateboard from Walmart not a real skating store, but I can only do one trick idk what it’s called but it’s not even an Ollie but I’ll get there one day. But man skating actually will change ur whole perspective like I used to see a road and a hill as just a plain old hill. I would just b like oh I could maybe go down on my bike with that. Ever since I started skating my whole perspective is different every flat surface that looks smooth or like a big hill, I just think “I wanna skate there” I’m in the car with my parents and I see areas passing by and I just think “it would b so fun to skate there” sucks I can’t do cool tricks tho I’ve only been doing it for a year. I wanna get a better one that’s like more than just 15$ lmao idk it’s a real skateboard but I was talkin with a dude that was in the neighborhood I was skating in and his skateboard was like 10x faster than mine. And bigger and he did cool tricks and stuff and I felt like a bad skater bc I couldn’t do a kick flip. I guess you could say mine was like tiny and cheap but it’s still a skateboard and it’s fun I love it and I’ve never actually made more friends by doing it because I feel like I’m not good enough to be friends with people who can do cool tricks and stuff. And no one actually skates in my small town, i see no other skaters at the park I go to it’s not a skating park but it has a big track. But the people in my town would probably make fun of me for trying to b “different” I guess I’m terrified of being considered ordinary. But skating is the best thing in the world like before you know it it’s just like ur go to hobby and it’s like a sport too bc ur kicking and stuff and it’s also so much fun and u just get so excited when u land a trick even if it’s a dumb trick that people hate on u just feel so good about yourself. It’s also addicting bc I have twisted my ankle really bad trying to land a trick and u just keep trying and u get so angry but ya know it’s worth it when u land it. Anyways my point it get a skateboard and the longer u skate the better u get at it!!! I used to fall all the damn time now it’s just so easy to do.This was a good ass video but I just wanted to rant lmao

    Started when i was 13. I’m 21 now and i hope that i can keep skating until i physically can’t anymore. Skating has been a huge part of my life because it’s helped me get over whatever bad shit happens in life. Whenever i land a new trick or relearn something it gets me super hyped up to land more tricks

    Edit: i still haven’t watched mid90s

    I've been on a board as long as i can remember. Earliest photos i can find are approx 1997.
    I almost quit in the late 2000s because in my local area the scene started going downhill.
    Early 2010s i got into painting decks which eventually got me back into riding again.

    the reason y’all didn’t really relate 2 the film as much is because y’all didn’t grow up in cali. Over here you see 10 year old kids smoking and doing a bunch of other crazy shit which isn’t a good thing, but it’s just how they grow up.

    shit as a skater from toronto whos been skating since i was 7(2003), the bullying thing is real. It can be real tough out there for someone starting out.

    I started skating in 1994-95 at age 12. Skated hard and got sponsored by my local shop but I fell out of it at age 23 due to life happening. Just picked it back up at 36 a few weeks ago. 90s skateboarding was the golden era. Grunge, rebels, CKY etc…. I miss it, but Im so glad I found it again. Muscle memory slowly returning.

    I smoked my first joint because all the local skaters was potheads. I was 10 when smoking weed and skating. But I lived in the ghetto. The suburban skaters were straight edge.

    I think the less dysfunctional your upbringing was the less you're going to relate to Mid90s. Everybody has their own experience.

    I started skating somewhere around 2004 and 2005. Me and a friend asked our parents to get us skateboards for children's day. I guess damn near everybody that started in the early to mid 2000s did it because of THPS; we were no exception. We got really into it and had a lot of fun. One time we tied our boards together and taped a cardboard box on top to make a car type thing, we fell and got all scraped but it was pretty funny in the end. Great times, but then my friend hurt his back one time… his board flew forward and he fell right against the sidewalk. They got him in an ambulance and everything, and took him away for like two days. That's when my grandparents (who raised me for a good few years) forbid me to skate again. Well, it's 2019 now, and I'm 25 years old. Bought a board last month, trying to get back into it. Turns out it's not like riding a bike. My balance seems much worse than it once was, and my depth perception is like nonexistent due to advanced keratoconus. Needless to say it hasn't been easy but I really want this to be a thing. I can't say it's one of my biggest regrets because it wasn't my decision in the first place, but it's definitely one of the things that I look back on and kinda get bummed out. I was a kid with nothing but time and no responsibilities, that was the perfect time… and what's funny is that friend of mine who hurt his back, his parents never forbid him from skating again. The week after that he was already out there skating. Ain't that something?
