Bollocks. Why is mountainboarding a 'cool sport' and scootering a 'rubbish toy'? I bet there are many people who think you look like a goof ball on a mountainboard and probably think it looks like a toy. Mountainboarding is no more a sport than scooters are and i bet the prize money is better on 2 wheels.
I don't see the need to slag them off as a gimmick when we do the sport we do. Stones and glass houses springs to mind. I'd take another look at the footage of mountainboarding from 1992-1996 and remember how stupid it looked when it all started.
If scooters cant hang in the long run then mountainboarding certainly can't. The industry is on it's arse compared to what it was 10 years ago and i bet way more scooters will be bought and ridden over the next year than mountainboards.
For the record I would still like to burn every scooter kid who stands about in the middle of my local bowl, helmet on the back of his head staring around like a dribbler. Ripping the piss out of them doesn't work though but a friendly chat and a little lesson on park etiquette can go a hell of a long way in making it a good place for everyone to skate/scoot. A little bit of respect.
