Most people just dont care what the skate is capable of, just give me "the best".... best what? The skating movies made people think they could skate, then become important in a group, a sense of belonging. But skating is work, if you dont love it, so lots of people drop out not long after getting in. No need to learn or learn about what makes your gear work best for you. So things have gone from the stuff that means something to flash and glitter. Skaters for a month and done....
