Village Psychic is back with their ‘Rules of Skateboarding’ series that looks at the unwritten “rules” that we live by. Underground New Yorker Dave Caddo who always has a new spot discusses the Do’s and Don’ts of skate spot etiquette.

Sample:

Every time I see a clip of you skating these days, you’re skating a spot I’ve never seen before. I was wondering if you approach skating a spot off the beaten path differently than you approach skating a super well known spot?

Yeah, you definitely have to gauge who’s around. If it’s a house spot, look and see if there’s any activity, if people are home. If someone comes out right away, I mean, a house spot is kind of like someone’s personal property, even if they’re renting. But I usually just barge it and try to react accordingly to whatever happens.

Do you treat getting kicked out of a house spot differently than, say, getting kicked out of a plaza in midtown?

For sure, because if it is a security guard, it is like, it’s not their personal property. It doesn’t matter. I guess it’s their job. I can see how someone would get more angry over their actual house, you know? Even though you might not be fucking up their place, people don’t understand what the fuck we are doing a lot of the time. “What is that noise? It’s loud! Are they fucking something up?”
