This city sucks for skateboards

Posted on Thu, May 17, 2012 at 3:09 PM

I longboard and bus around Halifax to get to Dal and work. I don't appreciate the weird looks or rude comments from other girls who think it's not classy or "only for guys". Nor do I appreciate dirty looks from people when I bring my board on the bus; it really doesn't take up any extra space, and certainly less than your fat asses. I'm very careful and courteous with pedestrians and cars, but if I skate on the road, I get run over. If I skate on the sidewalk, I get yelled at by passing cops. I'm just trying to get around the city in an environmentally friendly and physically active way, so stop treating me like a punk. —Skatebording is Not a Crime
