Skateboarding culture is one of the coolest communities a person can be a part of. No longer are skaters only found in Southern California and certain parts of New York City. There are kids and adults having fun on skateboards all across the nation.
When it comes to joining this group, there are a few things you need to consider. From improving your style by rocking Supreme brand sweatshirts to spending more time on your board, here are some helpful tips for breaking (and staying) into the cool, eccentric world of skate culture:
- Rock some cool skater clothing — Though you can wear just about anything when you hop on a board, if you want to be taken seriously within this culture you should consider donning some of the coolest skater brands. Your best bet: rocking a Supreme brand sweatshirt. In the 22 years since James Jebbia launched Supreme, the skate shop and clothing brand has earned worldwide renown, even being declared by Vogue in 2017 that the brand had reached “legendary global status.”
- Start acting the part — No matter where you’re located in the world, if you’re trying to look like a skater you better actually be a skater, otherwise what’s the point? Perhaps the worst thing you could be within this cool global community is a “poser.” To avoid embarrassing title, get out and skate as much as you can. Even if you think you’re the worst skater in the world, you’ll at least earn respect for giving it a go. Hop on a board, fall down, and keep trying.
- Be open, accepting, and judgment free — Skate culture has evolved tremendously over the years. Though it remains an exclusive group, it’s not exclusive for any reason other than separating skaters and non skaters. If you want to be a part of this accepting global community, you better rid yourself of any negative judgments and show more compassion.
