veiw this plz basically i have seen a lot of comments about kids on skate parks being dicks, but at my local park we are nice people, this one kid (ok he was scootering at the time) sliced his mouth open after he faceplanted. evryone helped him up and someone even ripped of their hoodie and used it to mop up the blood. he ended up having 14 stiches.

It is apparent that many riders have little respect for those (as well as spots) around them, and the truth is they probably don't have much respect for themselves either. I love riding with my long time BMX bros, as well as anyone else on a bike (gives you a great reason to meet new people) But I'd go ride by myself over riding with some prick(s) any day. Ditto to those showing respect for the younger riders. We were all there once!

This reminds me of the time i was at the skatepark and they have a really narrow quarter next to an angle and when i went up the quarter i went up on the right side of it, but i spin to the right, so i knew i wasnt gonna make the spin, so i bailed and my bike launched out and hit this kid that was going up the angle, he fell and almost started crying, so i helped him up, apoligized to him, and bought him a drink ( i think it was an arizona tea). Theres also a kid thats there all the time that does nothing but bitch at people, i came off the vert wall and was gonna 360 the fly but i didnt commit and only made it to 90 degrees, he asked me what the fuck that was and if im gonna hit the fly that i need to do something right. I was so pissed. He needs to watch this video. Wow that was long.

jew boy, you were a little kid once. As long as kids have a bit of an understanding of etiquette they're fine. they just go there to learn to ride. There's this kid tucker that comes to my local park all the time. He's 8 years old and he shreds.

And if little kids are snaking you all the time, talk to them about it without being a dick. Just calmly explain to them the basics of skatepark etiquette. It works 99% of the time.

oh and don't be that asshole who one ups kids and copies their tricks. Nothing I hate more than doing a run and seeing some kid do the exact same thing but "harder tricks"
