And like hackers... They were seen as a subculture and anarchists in some people's eyes even though I was just stoked to pop a nollie into a frontside grind... And then fall and be hurt badly.

Also all hackers are skateboarders... Didn't you see the movie 'Hackers'?

Haha... And it's fun and brings together a little community.  :)
