Why do skateboarders hate scooters?

Skateboarders have long been rivals with scooters. The main reason is that many kids on these vehicles often don’t pay attention or cause accidents, which leads to arguments between skateboarders and riders alike-even some parents will act entitled when they send their child out into traffic without watching where he/she goes first (and sometimes at all).

The one thing that will unite all skateboarders worldwide is their revulsion toward scooters. From an early age, they’ve been conditioned to hate these small Little Tikes vehicles with every fiber in your body – even though it technically isn’t any kind of wheeled sports equipment.

So what exactly is the deal with this thing toward scooters? 

An examination of these enigmas will be needed in order for us to understand them better.

Unfortunately, there are many cases of kids getting hurt when they skateboard without wearing protective gear. 

This is due in part because most young riders don’t know how to ride properly and also lack supervision from an adult or fellow skater who can help them avoid accidents- even if it means making sure you always wear your safety equipment.

Kids are usually scooter riders

Scooter riding is usually the domain of children, which has led to many negative interactions between scootering skateboarders. 

These riders tend not only want people who are younger than them in certain activities like this but also believe they should be able to dictate what types and how often these activities take place during their age advantage over others involved with those same sports or hobbies-a point that no one can really argue against since every human on earth wants some kind of personal power when it comes down but winning arguments.

The worst part about skateboarding is when you’re riding your board and kids on scooters ride up next to you. 

They don’t understand how hard it can be, so they think its cool if someone else has a louder or more annoying voice than them while also chuckling at their own jokes as though the whole world should know what’s funny only.

There are some kids on scooters who will be so bad, even older riders won’t want to deal with them.

The really young ones can often cause trouble for other people and themselves- what’s worse is that there isn’t anyone else around their age nearby teaching these spoiled brats how not to behave.

Scooter riders are notorious for over waxing of things

Scooter riders are infamous for their over-waxing of things at the skatepark, which can be one way to get on a skater’s bad side. 

It’s generally agreed that there aren’t any rules in skateboarding but if there were a list with some rules about not doing this then number 2 would be trying hard not to push mongo (or something like either).

Skating is a very technical sport that requires precision. But even within the world’s best skaters, there are different opinions on how much wax should be used and what type it should really depend upon your personal preference.

It’s not uncommon to see conflicts in the scooter community between those who prefer boards with a lot of wax, and lighter skater users. 

The reasons for this difference are twofold: firstly roller blades produce more friction than skateboards do; secondly many rollerbladers will add their own oil directly into the trucks before they ride which can seep through onto other things like decks or truck beds if there isn’t enough clear space around it – something only an experienced rider would notice.

Waxing a scooter incorrectly is an easy mistake to make, but it can also have huge consequences. 

The problem with over-waxing in particular comes from the fact that rollerbladers are known for doing this kind of thing too, so unless scootering manufacturers change materials or something else about their products, there will always be arguments about how much product should really go on each wheel at any given time.

Scooter kids are notorious for snaking

Skateboarding is all about being first. For those who don’t know, snaking means taking someone else’s turn in line-up and it can really ruin a skateboarder’s day because this rule has been strongly encouraged by pro skaters for years now to not do so with scooters or any other form of transportation that isn’t yours as well, a cardinal sin if there ever was one.

Scooter kids are known for being v8, and just getting in the way. They also do victory laps where they keep cruising around without stopping even when playing follow-the leader sometimes. 

These things should be avoided by skateboarders but unfortunately it’s not uncommon at all among scootering communities because most of their riders tend to be little kids who lack situational awareness so there is no chance whatsoever that these seemingly inconsequential activities will escape them unscathed.

It’s almost guaranteed that the animosity between scooter riders and skateboarders wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t for these pesky kids who keep getting in their way. 

The problem is, not only do they make things difficult but sometimes even dangerous too. For example: A skater might misread directions from a nearby scooterer because of its asynchronous turning mechanism – leading him/her straight into an obstacle or someone else trying to go around.

It’s easier to ride a scooter

Scootering is a lot easier to learn than skateboarding, which makes it easy for new scooterists. This doesn’t mean that top-tier skaters don’t have talent or the ability in difficult tricks but compared with them, scooters are made and designed so beginners can enjoy this sport easily as well. 

Scoots also allow people of all abilities, even those who cannot jump over their obstacles to participate due to its lackadaisical style of balance requirements (though some skills will still help).

Scooters are easier to learn than skateboards because there is a lot less variety in tricks. Skaters must work harder for their skills, while scooterers only need practice with the same few moves over again until they can do them on demand.

As mentioned before, it takes people years of skating or even just minutes before being able to perform some basic skater’s graceful footwork, alignments, transitions etc.

Skateboarders think scooters aren’t cool

When it comes down to the simple truth, there are actually many skateboarders who don’t like scooters because they feel that riding one makes them look “lame.”

In reality though this is just an assumption and not necessarily true in all cases but for our example here-most people would probably agree with you on your assessment that when seen by others as cool or even remotely similar then such a thing might have some level of hipness attached.

Skateboarding has influences in fashion, art and music while scooters are just for walking. 

It’s hard to say why anything isn’t cool because there is no universal answer that can be applied across all cultures or time periods but it may have something do with the type of energy associated with each activity- skateboards seem more active than leisurely strolls on a bike (which also doesn’t make them any less enjoyable).

Conclusion:

It’s been an age-old battle between skaters and scooter riders, but why should we even hate on someone because they ride a scooter? We all deserve respect. In life you shouldn’t generalize an entire group just based on the actions of bad actors. 

That being said, let me get this straight for you: not everyone does stuff so don’t judge them as such kiddo; understanding others is key in living peacefully with them.
