If you ever watch Dogtown and z boys the movie, so you will not confuse which one came first, surf or skate. And you will know the similiar of surf and skate.
Surf and skate is not a sport, its a lifestyle, these kind of activities now become an urban lifestyle for some of people. Surf and skate create their own culture, own style, and of course its start with a small community.
For some people, music can not be separated from their life. And so with this two lifestyle, their culture is so close with music, many kind of music. Not only punk or hardcore music, its many different genre of music. But i can say, punk and hardcore music is so identically with skateboard, and surfing.
Both surfing and Skateboarding is an adrenaline pumping activities, the more you rush your adrenaline the more exciting this activities. The relevancy with the music is, it will need loud and hard music, music that can generate energy. Its also don’t mean always with a rock genre music, sometime a slow music work.
Being inside this kind of community is so much fun, i’ve been in this type of culture, and still be in it.
From my opinion, i would like to make a relevance of this lifestyle with today technology. How they interact with Social Media, Gadget and Tech, and internet? the answer is, they interacted a lot. they keep using internet, they get connected using social media, and they will keep updated with the latest news provided by internet. There’s no retarded person for this one.
For some opinion, surfers and skaters are both the most creative culture. As they are an independent community. For today, it is very difficult to escape from technology, internet, and social media. All of them help build your creativity.
