I watched the one hour summary (with a lot of fast forwarding) of this weekend’s X-Games on ESPN. There was no street coverage in there. Tons of human cannonball skateboard launcher, vert, and all the other crap like surfing and motocross, but no street. At first I thought that sucked, but then realized that they know that the average person that doesn’t skate won’t understand normal skateboarding. We’re safe. This thing we do with a piece of wood and wheels is far from being understood and taken over by the average jackass in a suit. So don’t panic. Real skateboarding is still what it’s always been, at least at the street level.
