Default i love boarding, but there is one thing about it i cant stand!

the freaking hecklers! i know this happens in other activities (EX skateboarding) but it seems to me to be particulary bad with SB

i like in NE ohio and live like 5 min away from boston mills/brandywine. not really a real mountain, but i have a pass because im just so freakin close.

anyways, it seems like there are so many jerk @ss people there who actually make fun of kids who are trying to get better and bail. dont get me wrong, im not like super sensitive or anything. its alright to tease your bros is a fun way but not strangers especially if they are alone of self consicious or whatev.

idk that really bugs me when i see people harassing others

does this bother anyone else as much as me?

I've never really seen heckling out here, people will cheer a spectacular wipeout occasionally if the person gets up afterwards.

The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.

Yes, but these are the people who are all talk and no show. The ones who will holler with laughter when they see a kid whipeout on a 5ft kicker. The ones who will then drop in on the same kicker and do a replica of the kid's whipeout. The ones who I will go down to either way and ask if they're okay. It humbles them. Slightly.

After a while, it won't bother you anymore. You're not gonna hang out with those people and you probably won't ever see them again. I hope these people don't get to you, just let it go and find a stash of powder. That's sure to get your mind off of these pricks.

Sounds like you've got sand in your vagina. My recommendation is to douche out the sand, take a few anti-drama pills, and see if you've gotten your dick back by morning.

I can't say I've seen much of what I would really consider mean-spirited heckling where I do most of my riding. If you're trying to pull off a trick but wreck in some spectacular fashion I don't think anyone that laughs or something is trying to give you a hard time, most of them have either done the same thing themselves or are too scared to try it and know it. If you can identify with what someone is going through I think it's easy to go straight into that fraternal teasing mode even if you don't know the person.

That being said maybe you're hearing things that I don't...

Sam is onto something with this one...

The guys are probably just insecure little thug kids who will most likely not be riding for long anyways.

And that's pretty shitty to hear this is going on. That's not something that I ever see going down in CO... I mean we all laugh at someone while on the lift and they eat shit and get up, but if they fall and look hurt, you don't hear anything except concerned remarks about the persons safety. We all wipeout and I dunno about you guys but I usually laugh at myself when I eat shit anyways.

Munky is probably one of the people doing the heckling at his hill ( =

It's odd you mention skateboarding because in 10 years of going to skateparks I have heard very little heckling. Almost none.

there was a skater in the 80s named Ken Park .. he was one of the biggest vert skaters of his time (mid to late 80s) ... he once told a story about him and his friends giving some little lanky kid shit in his neighborhood for not being able to ollie off a curb ... that kid was tony hawk ... so I guess moral of that story is wtf do the haters know ... just do your thing ... those guys giving folks shit had to learn jst like everyone else .. maybe next time unstrap and tell em to show you how its done and see what they do haha
