Rude skateboarders

My name is Emmo Gates and I am a local skater. I skate in the skate park almost every day. However, I do not stay as long as I would like. Not because I have homework, or chores to do, it is because of the skate borders.

The skate borders over power the skaters so it is almost impossible to have a good day skating. The skate borders will through rude comments and kick my friends and me out of the boles. They have a line up for the intermediate bole and have one person in it at a time in it. When a skater tries to join the line up, they kick you out. We need more adults at the skate park.
