Abstract

Through an analysis of the social practice of spothunting in action sports culture, this article develops theories of learning and cultural production through an ontology of immanence. Spothunting entails an enthusiast seeking out elements of the environment with which to perform tricks. Analysis focuses specifically on an idioculture of BMX street riding videographers. It highlights the integral role of affect in the development of idiocultural sensibilities, or group members’ attunements to how potential activity may both common and vary with the macroculture with which the group is affiliated. This article contributes affect and cultural vitalization as parallel theories to mediation.
