Ice Tubig is Best For Staying Hydrated
Ice tubig is one of the greatest hit songs of Gloc9 that was released in 2017. As a matter of fact, the song has a lot of deeper meaning, as a skater you can also relate to the lyrics that have a tremendous impact on every Filipino skateboarders lives, especially if you have or had a girlfriend that all of a sudden changed for some odd reason – not just girlfriend but also boyfriend that switched to become picky on things.
Needless to say, it’s not all about relationships because Ice water in the Philippines is one of the most valuable pieces that can help everyone consume daily at an affordable price. Usually, in a skate session, you will be dehydrated to an extent that you will be needing water – skate rats are always in the streets looking for spots to be creative in their own way.
New skaters in the scene experienced the initiation of being the one who will buy ice tubig for the homies as a respect to the OG’s in the game and of course to his/her new friends – it’s not like he/she will be the one always buying but to also show love for a rock-solid friendship. Moving forward once there’s a new skater in town, the preceding chapter goes on for the previous skater to pass the torch.
Sari-sari Store is The Place to be
The Sari-sari store is the most popular place where you can find Ice tubig for only 2 pesos – back then it was only 1 peso however, some stores sell it to 3 pesos these days but still, it is the most modest amount for every skate rats in the Philippines. Depending on where you skate Sari-sari store is available nationwide hence, skate spots that are high-end i.e., BGC, Ayala and some skate parks don’t have ice water – that’s why some skateboarders have their own way whether they have their own packed lunch or some go to any type of fast food to eat the leftovers for being a true jackass back then.
True skateboarders are always down for anything as long as it will bolster them to be a gnarly sponsored skater. Consequently, buying ice tubig is a way of survival since complete set up is quite expensive.
Non-skateboarders will never understand how costly it is to skate and all of the 100% skateboarders will do everything to save up to buy a setup whether it is brand new, pre-owned, 3rd hand, or even 4th hand skate complete. This shows that skateboarding in the Philippines is all for the love, for the heart and soul.
