I actually have a lot of respect for street snowboarders. If you thought “activating” a street spot by bringing a metal sign to cover a crack or bondoing over rumble strips was hard work, wait til you hear what it takes to make street spots hittable on a snowboard.

Not only does it require a lot of manpower to shovel pounds of snow to build a drop-in and run up to a spot, but it also takes insane levels of confidence to safely gauge how many feet of run up to give yourself leading up to a multi-kinker 20+ stair rail where you can’t even kick out of if you don’t lock in (there ain’t no such thing as a cross pinch on a snowboard either).

When we saw this video floating around on IG of Tyler Lambert and his friends from Pseudo Corp sessioning the Hollywood High 16 rail on snowboards, all of those thoughts came rushing into my head along with tons of questions, most notably, “How, and why?” After being tipped off by photographer David Milan Kelly, who was there that day, I got in touch with Tyler to ask him what went into making the whole thing happen and to get the full story.

    I compare snowboarding to wakeboarding. You have to have money to engage in these activities. Thus, the participants are typically upper-middle class white dudes. Not the “dirtbags” that skateboarding attracts, since it’s relatively cheap by comparison. But I suppose the same can be said about rollerblading, and that will always be hella wack. So who cares?

    Im surprised, toyota has quality cars I’ve heard! I never had many issues with it at all. The total replacement parts over the years have been occasional rotor changes, just redid the tie rods and control arms myself recently, the radiator fans had a rat get caught it in once and I had to replace it, and some engine sensors that got too dirty over the years. Original transmission and engine.

    Never worry about that type of stuff, the people who commit those heinous acts are themselves posers.

    However, you 100% should be riding your skateboard absolutely everywhere as a new skater. You have no need for a skatepark whatsoever if you aren’t comfortable and STABLE while pushing.(riding on one leg while you push is quite the acquired skill) You’re just begging for an injury this way.

    Not being able to ride while trying to use skatepark obstacles should cause you more anxiety regarding this than carrying your board!
