Default Leg Bandanas??

What is the deal with people tying bandanas around their shins? Is there a purpose to this or is it strictly a style thing? Just curious...

No. It's a gay symbol. Like a purple triangle, a rainbow sticker, or blue headlights.

I admit it's gay looking. But I don't think thats what its for. It seems like every kid and high schooler on the hill ties a bandana around their leg. But I dont see older boarders doing this which leads me to think its a wannabe gangster style thing. I'm sure there are some boarders on this forum that do this. So chime in and explain please.

Didn't Bruce Springsteen do that back in the mid-80's?

It's a sign that you're gay? haha you're an idiot Doe

It's just a style thing and a way for friends to spot each other, lighten up and stop being so judgmental

So its just a style/fad thing? I dont really think its a good way to spot your friends. I spot my friends by jacket/pants color combo.

I can see how it would be a cool idea if you were with a riding club and everybody had the same bandana with a club logo or something.

If a bunch of friends got together and said, "Let's all wear matching bandanas on our legs today!" then that would be kind of...
