Is social Media for skate-board media bad? Chapter 2 The challenges of stayingrelevant The beginnings…. To look into why I love what Ilove you have to first perceive whati have started and go to the very be-ginning. My Roots go deep in lots ofvarious different cultures of musicand scenerelated things. Skateboarding hashelped shaped the way I dress, themusic i listen too and the hobbies Ihave gotten into. I would read maymagazines, and watch undergroundskateboard videos to get a glimpseinto something that was very intrigu-ing to me.
So “back in the day”skate video were put out yearly withthe tricks a year ahead of what every-one else in the world would see. Soby the time the video came out, thepros were done and moved on fromthose said tricks, and everyone hadto catch up. Now with everythingpretty much in real time, people areable to post any tricks as it is done.This can be amazing for someonethat you will be the first to post saidtrick.
Chapter 3 Finale and the Love 1 2 Social Media…has become a blessing and a curse for content and what it bringsfor footage. Anyone can literally postanything about their life in literally10 seconds of it happening to any-one in the world.
I self explained thiseven if you know because to actuallyexplain it, its actually cool! But haveactually know it, its as we have beenjaded. We take pictures, stopped buy-ing cameras and just use our phonesfor everything. With skateboardingcoming through from a undergroundVX scene, if your unfamiliar with VXcameras, it was a go to for filming inthe skateboard industry before HighDefinition cameras came out. Tokids, pro skaters, and everyone post-ing clips all the time has the affectof pushing out content been biased?Are tricks becoming so insane, andso fast to come out to the world hasit lost its touch? Are kids coming upgetting that good ? It seems to be a2 sided opinion. The new generationof skateboarders have a lot of newtools that are at their disposable tohelp them reach new hieghts and newprogression. Staying Revelant..
. Is the name of the game. Itisn’t about the tricks you are do-ing, lets be honest. A many pros have been doing the same tricks for years, I have my shitty hard-flip I love to do. I am not bashingwhat tricks people do because99.
5% can do them better thenme. What I am saying is being rel-evant. Skateboarding everyday nomatter how shitty your morningwas, and getting it fucking done.Obviously injuries get in the way,kids, wife, life, but thats what be-ing pro is, and you find a balance.
