Skateboard culture is a lot like high school—cliques rule. You have your technical skaters, your punk skaters blah blah and so on. Certain skateboarders fi t into these cliques and stay within them. When an individual does something diff erent—let’s say longboarding, for example—an openminded few may accept that person, but most will ostracize him or her.
