Counter Cultures are a funny thing. So are perceptions. What is dorky and what is cool? When I was younger, I used to skateboard around San Francisco with my friends and remember telling them that if I ever became a "jogger" to shoot me. Part of what I love(d) about skateboarding was that we were moving through the streets against the grain. Most people looked down upon skateboarding. We were different than these people. They were safe in their cars, taking the bus, walking or on bicycles.
