snow is pretty much all gone. The weather is looking up and longboarding season is pretty much back. i’m creaming. send me nudez. jk.
but if you want to feel free, i’m cool with whatever. my submit box is always open.
i’m so stoked for this year. i’m determined to get better. i will skate every day until i die. i stocked up on polysporin because that shit is gold. i have so much protective gear, and i have friends who will go on this longboarding journey with me. i feel like such a failure for my limited skill gain last summer and i need to improve.

The longboarding tag has been pissing me off more than usual.
Maybe it’s just me being a whiny little bitch but it irritates me when I see girls posing on pintails in the tag.
Yes, yes I know you have recently discovered this sport and you enjoy the wind in your hair, the sound of your wheels rolling on the pavement, and how cool you look. No judgement from me when it comes to people trying new things. I welcome you with open arms.
However, if you post your longboarding post in the longboarding tag and then i see 23456789 more tags attached to it…. well that really pisses me off.
Why? you may ask.
Well when you tag your post with a million other tags it gives me the impression that you want everyone to see how rad you look/sound being a “longboarder” and all. K cool, i get it. You’re proud of being a longboarder. That’s great. But, once I see tags such as
#girlsthatlongboard #longboardinggirl #girlswhoskate #skatergirl or some shit like that. well that’s just going overboard.
Let’s be real. The longboarding community is a sausagefest. It is dominated by male riders. When you hear the words “girl longboarder” what do you imagine? You probably imagine a white girl wearing a flower crown, denim shorts, and a crop top riding a pintail into the sunset on a quiet road. That’s the ridiculous stereotype of girl longboarders since the girls that do post about longboarding will generally post photos like the stereotype. It’s so hard for a girl to get into longboarding because nobody will take them seriously even if they were interested in learning skills.
I don’t really know where this is going but I’m just all riled up right now.
Ugh, girls just need to break the pintail riding stereotype. I hate it. Also, fuck weheartit.

Winter is coming.
Just an update. The weather is getting colder and I really want to go out for a few more longboarding sessions before the weather starts getting shitty. I’ve seen a lot of people in my area go longboarding a lot lately. I think they regret not being able to go for a session when it was sunny. I regret it too. I wish Patrick Switzer held more BCIT Skate Sessions at BCIT. That’d be nice.

I missed the bus on my way to work today so I took my longboard out for a ride to the sky train in order to make it to work on time. I brought it into the locker room at work and I got a lot of compliments from my co-workers at Playland since they didn’t know that I was a longboarder. I also received a few compliments on my board from strangers. I got into this sport because I needed a summer hobby and I always thought longboarding was rad as balls but yunno getting complimented on how badass you look is always a nice bonus.
