As sexual as this post may sound due to the title, it is nothing of the sort. This is a blog about skateboarding – c’mon dude. This will be about a different type of nighttime adventure – nighttime skateboarding. Skating at night is much different than in the daytime, albeit the act is still the same. There are several things that make it different, there is: less people, less traffic, less mania, meaning that there will overall be less commotion going on that is so hard to avoid during the day. Less commotion not only means a happy skateboarder, but also a happy person (Not to mention that there is no sun, making the point at which you tire to be pushed further back than it’s usual, meaning, you guessed it, more skating).
Aside from the skateboarding, you may witness a lot of nightly antics, nighttime insanity (an alternative to the daytime insanity?) being out at these times of the day, it is true that “the freaks come out at night.” There are drug dealers, drug addicts, gangs, thieves, (bad thing), (bad thing), et cetera. With that being said, it should be noted that you should not skate solo when you are skating at night, it can be dangerous. You don’t want to end up in a situation that you could have easily avoided had you ran with a posse.
Posed with the question of whether I prefer to skate during the day, or at night, I would respond, “Either one is fine, let’s go skate.”
