stupid skateboarding photos

What is it about the mainstream and jumping on the skateboarding bandwagon?

From high fashion brands to Hollywood scriptwriters, every time people need a shorthand for "rebellious yoof" they stick a skateboard in shot.

Most annoyingly of all, they never seem to get actual skaters - or anyone who even has the first clue about skating - to show them how it's done.

Thankfully, the Instagram account You Did Not Skate That exists to lampoon these pitiful efforts at appropriating our sport. I mean look at some of these...

The artfully scuffed nose and tail give the illusion... but the stick on tattoos shatter it.

"If you could tick every hipster cliché in the book, and you could look like a 1995 Loaded cover girl...? Yes, that's it, perfect."

Ryan Sheckler's Grindr profile leaves little to the imagination.

If I was that horse I'd be running away too.

Crude, but an effective way to reach that irritating itch...

"Bollocks to having an actual skateboarder, let's just get a breakdancing goon down the skatepark and get him to prance about in front of the model."
