What protection should I wear? Full pads and a helmet? Helmet and elbows only? Knees?

what are you trying to skate?
maybe kneepads for bowls so you can slide out. really just learn how to fall properly, that will save you much more than pads

If all you're skating is flatground, you're not really risking too much, it would take a really uncoordinated unlucky slam to get hurt badly. But if you're worried then I'd recommend a helmet, everything else you can walk off. Maybe elbow pads and some sort of wrist/ankle stabilizers. Kneepads are pointless on flat.

just try to find the right pressure point, if you do it proper they'll stay right under your feet. you should never have to feel like you're forcing it. in my mind it's an 'anti scoop' but idk that makes sense to anyone else. practice w/ fs 360 shuvs and front foot impossibles as well

>>
>>12648614
You'll probably favor one over the other so probably just a board for what you do most and deal with it while you're doing the other?
I think having a cruiser isn't a bad idea though. I use mine everyday because fuck hitting a pebble on my regular board while my dog is running full speed or if I have food in my hands. I feel like a dweeb whenever I ride my cruiser though

having more than just your standard deck and a cruiser is getting dangerously close to quiverfag territory. I doubt you're skating so much tranny and also so much street that having a separate setup for each would make a difference.
>>
>>12648614
switching your shit up constantly isn't a good idea for a beginner imo. switching up your trucks and wheels will change the way your board flips, what your pop feels like, how you lock into grinds etc. just focus on learning w/ one board and then specialize later

People thi k that skateboarding and surfing are an "adrenaline rush" and if they've been raised by TV, place it under the marketing umbrella of "extreme sports".

It can be an adrenaline rush, but people generally engage in those activities to gain the satisfaction of mastering manoeuvres and exercising control, to the point where their rhythm flows and the combination of moves presents itself as a smooth dance.
>>
>>12651849
Yeah rails aren't extreme at all

I use pic related (Aeropex Aftershokz). I'll never stop recommending these to people. They're bone conducting headphones so they don't go over your ears, which lets you hear your surroundings as normal but still listen to music/podcasts.

In terms of your phone put it in a front pocket or get one of those running waistbands, you're not likely to fall on your front.

Some good stuff on there but it's waaayyyyyyy out of order. Animal chin, Gou and Mongo need to go way up for example. Pro Skater CTE should be just below the surface as it's not like it's a dark secret or anything and really people should know about it by now. Pre 50s skating is also pretty well known by now too. I think it would be better to rename it to "Skateboards came from Scooters" and put it lower down if you get me. Also the rollerblade bullying could be moved all the way down and named "Disappearance of rollerblading" if you saw that other thread about it. Also sad that no one's recommended adding "Root tricks" to the second or third lowest level. Also take out "All wheels are the same" you know that's not true even in the slightest.

Overall it could be funnier but that might be just because of how out of place so many things are. Sadly some youtuber is already doing a video on this shit no doubt so it probably needs redoing completely but a good start at least.

Jay Adams was a rich kid whose step-dad helped him open up his OWN SKATE DECK COMPANY when he couldn't be pro anymore.

Shit, I have been waiting forever for a post like this. Too bad we have trolls revive the general, but I guess you have to take the good with the bad.

Add these:
-competition results, the more you go back in time, the more predetermined they are
-Mickey Reyes as a former cop is the connection between deep state/intelligence agencies to infiltrate deluxe and promote white supremacy as stealthily as possible, Mexican mafia/Aryan brotherhood collaboration (this holds some truth)
-skaters were never uncool. Grosso gives you the history on lots of things, but this is the biggest lie/misconception ever. In California, in the 80s, or anywhere else, you were always cool if you skated.

Did they really steal your board? Fucking call the cops on them.
And the whole situation sounds really shitty but remember, it's your life and in your life you should do things that make you happy. These assholes will forget about you quickly while you might get a lot of fun from skateboarding.

Fuck them, try to get your board back and maybe go skating in the mornings, parks are usually empty then.

I'm kind of interested in getting back into it but after a traumatic first outing im not sure what to do. can i learn shit inside my small apartment room?
what board do you guys recommend?
why did i fall over so fast? why cant i even get going at all? i cant figure out how to stand on a board much less move. is it my shoes? ive just been using my one pair i have which are some old nike runners.
how do i stop being nebbish and stop being intimidated by everyone involved in this hobby im interested in? im just some nerd loser type so i stick out everywhere

I understand this. I tried fatter shoes, 80a wheels, wider deck, harder bushings. All this so I could bomb hills without speed wobbles, rough terrain, and not have to get tickled by all the vibrations when riding. Too bad none of the things I bought fixed anything. Having to bomb hills every time I want to skate, and having to push all the way back up everytime. Good luck guys.

Only took them 30 years but they've finally made a version of Aggressive Inline that looks cooler and is more interesting to watch than it's skateboarding equivalent.
https://youtu.be/5cifA5qfeKk?t=2907
compared to
https://youtu.be/hd-2TYlKiGE?t=1250
Congrats to Inline though it's a dead sport so too late.
>>
>>12670311

Inline has always had a higher amplitude than skating, they can go faster, do longer rails, higher airs, and more flips etc. It's when they try and do things techy like ledge dancing and grind combos that it looks retarded.

It's essentially the last underground sport out of skating/bmx, there is a scene but you have to find it.
>>
I'm working on my pop-shuvs and i can consistently land them with just my back foot, but my back foot lands on the front of the board cos the board is landing a little bit behind me instead of carrying forward with my momentum. does anyone know what i should do to fix this based on this description.
>>
>>12671063
If you have the rotation/scoop down then all you really need to do is keep your center of gravity over the board and not lean too forward. Seems like you aren't committing because you have to lead and get your front foot high enough to allow the board to pop and spin, it will feel like it essentially does nothing but guide and then you place the back foot on the board to stop and land the trick. As always keep your shoulders parallel with the board before you do the trick.
>>
>>12671063
if it's going behind you, you're too far forward.
if it's going in front of you, you're too far back.
>>
>>12669576
Thank you.
>>
>>12666441
There is no secret. Every skateboarder on earth had this exact same experience standing on a skateboard for the first time. Day one is hard as fuck. Don't skate in your apartment, that's really fucked up to your neighbors. If you are insecure to the point of hallucinating people making fun of you then I doubt skateboarding is a healthy activity for you or your brain. Try something else like video games
>>
>>12671447
>video games
ah yes, that always gets the ladies. i had a couple of friends who started skating for a few months then they went back to video games because they couldn't get past rolling ollies over a curb. it's a damn shame because skating really starts to open up after a certain point.

Where do the roller girls come from? There are like 5 at the park every time now, and they're all hot af and communist. WHY do they only handstand to fakie?? Why? I've done like 3 inverts that were worth a fuck in my whole life (one got posted like 5 generals ago) and if I were a sexy teenage roller girl communist and I could handstand, I would do eggplants and fakie egg plants especially. the double hand roller skate invert (handstand) to fakes is one of the great question marks of 2020. Fine me 1 example of a one handed, other hand on skate,180 roller skate invert and I'll leave 4chan for ever.
>>
>>12672038
https://youtu.be/B9ac0DFzeAk
For example at 1:49, she stalls the everloving FUCK out of a double fakie egg, why not go one handed? Is my patriarchal male skateboarder brain ignorant to the beauty of both hands? The testosterone in me says grab your skate and I'll send you thousands through onlyfans to watch your roller skate eggplants for weeks on end. The hardest part of doing an invert on a skateboard is grabbing the board and pulling it to your feet once you're upside down. They have that box checked the second you lace your skate

my bad. high 'n dry is the one. I knew it was something like that. Amazing video clip
>>
>>12674500
it was a single textbook ollie but it was stationary
the hill thing was just cause there are like 3 steep downhill roads on the way to the skatepark I actually felt the speed wobble it was fucking scary but I remembered youtube vids on how to slow down
the drop in was just me being ballsy and not wanting to leave the park without getting hurt a little, I did manage to fuck my pants up but I managed it after I remembered the never lean back thing

I hope im not too sore for another round tomorrow, I was only able to work at it for like 2 hours since my shit arrived so late

Literally thought speed wobbles would throw me off my skateboard into the oncoming car, and then my ran over corpse would get eaten by dogs. Share near death stories.

Speed wobbles coming from leaning too far backward, and remedying them by leaning as far forward as possible. Idk how you would condense this into a short phrase. Physics of speed wobbles? Anyway, the instinctual "lean back when hauling ass" is what causes shitloads of slams on hillbombs. It's simple physics, it's also why downhill fags stand on their front truck and lean forward like complete retards. You will never see someone do the skateboard style hill bomb of lean as far back as possible with hands spread wide in a downhill jam. Getting up on your front truck is the first thing they teach you when you try downhill for the first time.
