Probably you don't like flatland because you can't do flatland! I tought the same a while back, but when you start to land rolls and small combos you have a lot of hear pumping!

The start is really boring, but once you learn some tricks, it's really cool!

streets still here, but its not big street really. What you really see now is tech street. Theres a diff between tech and flat.

I do trials. Pure trials bayyyyyyybeeeeeeeeee.

In my opnion you can not obligate someone who doesn't like street to do street, people should do what they like most.

Yes. I find that people get better fastest when they practice the style they like best. I know it's that way with me.

Yeah thats true for me. I used to really want to learn all the street tricks and be really good at it. Then I realized that I would just get frustrated learning street tricks and I sucked at it. Now I have moved onto muni and I'm having a blast. I really enjoy riding and getting better at it. I'm also getting better and better at commuter unicycling and I enjoy that too. So basically do whatever style you're best at and like doing the most and you'll have a much better time with. As for the street is dead idea it doesn't really matter if big steet might be flashier to non riders. What matter is to do what you want to do and not what everyone else expects you to do. Do it for yourself!
