    So I'm a 13 year old, still in middle school, and I'm at the late beginner stages of skating. Most of the skaters at my school are pot heads (yes, it's true, sadly), and the rest are anti social. I'm a pretty known person at my school, and I don't really stay in one group all the time, but there just isn't anyone that's willing to help me with filming, or just skate with me. My goal in life is to become pro, but if I can't get footage that is probably not going to happen. I usually film myself, but the camera doesn't move with me so I really don't get the full trick and it's just really frustrating. I almost always do better with friends around because they talk me into doing stuff I'd never try on my own. It's just a better vibe. What would you guys suggest I do?

    Skate for fun now your only 13 I wouldn't worry about getting footage yet. Just because someone smokes bud doesn't make them a villain. Maybe there real chill and will help you out. Just don't do what your not comfortable with.

    Nah I'm okay with the smoking, and I talk to them when they're like clean, but they act annoying when they're high.

    They just don't talk. I try to be cool with them, and hit them up to skate, but they always either don't reply or say they're busy. Skating alone in my backyard is pretty boring after a while, even with music blasted.

    i'd just skate with the smokers whenever they're keen to skate and by yourself whenever they aren't...

    get the rich one to buy a camera and film, every group has a rich member..

    @stumbles: The only rich person there is a ****. LOL.

    @Bandeanies: I usually go to Pedlow, and bus it to Noho with my brother like once every two months. I guess I'm not good enough to go to skateparks yet, because I'm always getting trash talked. LOL. it's all good though. I'll just learn more until going to the parks.

    My advice is to get a good homie who skates. Easier said than done, but it's chill:I have a homie who is down to hang and shred the gnar almost every day, including after school. Maybe get your own little skate crew. Skating with friends makes you progress so much quicker! Also, go out and find spots! I used to think my town sucked for skating, but if you check it out and creep behind buildings, college campuses, industrial areas, and school, you might find something sick. I wouldn't worry about becoming pro yet, just skate, chill, film...

    Hang with the stoners, man. Don't partake if you choose, but they might turn out nice and chill (sometimes they really are douchebags, though). Or, better yet, get a good friend into skating, cruising, filming, skate videos, etc.

    that's not because they're high, it's because they're 13.

    If you have a local skatepark thats definitly a good spot. When i was like 15 most of my friends that i skated with were 18-20 years old because not alot of people i went to middle/ highschool with skated.

    normally I wouldn't advocate telling a 13 year old to get high...... but in this case I'd say he has no alternatives. Just go ahead and start mainlining heroin. Then you'll be ahead of the curve when you're 15 like Metallicuh.

    Can't go wrong with the bud, but skateparks are the way to go. I've never been to a park and seen anybody get ****ed. They're all pretty chill with each other at the parks here, I guess it's not like that everywhere.
