09.13.10 Push Culture: NYC by: Josh Spear I love longboarding around NYC– even though it scares the bajesus out of me after seeing a few close calls. Great video on the craft and culture in NYC. Blob Once you start trying to do real tricks on a longboard-just get on a real skateboard. It looks ridiculous doing oiiles and flip tricks on a longboard! http://openskateboards.com trevor ouch that was embarrassing just to watch. thy this instead.. http://post22.com/873 Joe The point of a longboard is transportation in NYC, not doing tricks. This is about Push Culture which is unique to NYC and is a lifestyle not a hobby. I respect what the guy is doing in NC but it is a whole different world here that’s what makes it special. Look into the Broadway Bomb if you want info about what we do here. http://thisispushculture.com Brian Davenport check out thisispushculture.com for more info on the growing longboard scene in nyc and around the globe. the video you posted is bustin’s take on NYC Push Culture and it happens to be a great video, i think. the other video trevor recommended is also great! why must you make it about one side or the other when we can all enjoy the ride? ride safe, ride fast (on whatever you choose to ride!) http://Theinternet Actual Reason “Push Culture” is just a bunch of marketing types trying their very best to cash in on longboarding and its growing popularity. If you check, it’s a clothing trademark filed by Davenport http://www.trademarkia.com/push-culture-85036811.html Here’s the definition from Bustin…which explains everything “Bustin’s impact on push culture is associating our name with the lifestyle we’re all already living” -longboardcollective.blogspot.com/2010/…/what-is-push-culture.html So they are associating their name with something already there…it’s called skateboarding. Jimmy Soladay Hahahaha! These pussy culture clowns are trying to rename skateboarding? Hahahahaha!
