    I'm not a big fan of skating alone, but I will do so when I have that certain urge. Skating with friends is the best. They motivate you so much.

    I love skateboarding by myself, especially late at night. The streets are empty and quiet. Places you would never be able to or even think of skating during the day are open and all the good spots that are crowded during the day are empty. I have no problem with motivation when it comes to skating by myself, I would actually rather skate by myself.

    Hit it boys!

    I skate alone.
    Yeah, yeah, with nobody else.

    You know when I skate alone,
    I prefer to be by myself.

    At one point all my main skateboarding pals either quit or moved away. I skated alone at spots close to my home for YEARS. I'd always be psyched when skaters would come to my spots when I was there.

    Now I go to the skatepark, and although there's almost always someone there, it can still feel like I'm skating alone because I get on my own trip and my own lines.

    When I was growing up learning it was always better to street skate with a big group of people who were either the same level or better.

    I like skating with friends. I mean don't get me wrong I love skating alone.. since that is what I mostly do, but, whenever they are off of work i'll sometimes tag alone with them and we'll go hit some spots up around town.


    Skating Is Good

    I skate alone every single day, except for the weekends, when I go to the skatepark. No one really skates in my neighborhood, but there are a bunch of skaters in the city.

    I skate alone, I guess I'm more motivated to do tricks w/o people around me.

    ^this. im so much better when im skating alone. but sometimes its just about hanging out with friends. like you already said: there are pros and cons, but still skating is always fun.

    for me, skating alone's like practicing for a show. skating with friends is like playing the show.

    both useful and fun - just different energy.

    Skaters gonna skate.
    Exactly- I have a feeling most people skate just to socialize and get in on the culture.

    I'm an old guy and just starting and a loner to boot, all my skating is alone. I'm curious to see if I develop any skating buddies.

    I mostly skate with friends at the moment because I'm new to going to skate parks. I guess it's just because if you are with others who aren't that great at skating then you aren't the only one getting in the way of the better skaters :L when I get more confident with it I guess I'll probably go skate alone more often.
