Anon from a shit poor town here. They can handle some pretty poor quality streets as long as you have the space to steer around the worst of it. Just get large and soft wheels and pebbles or cracks will hardly be a problem. Extra protective gear couldn't hurt either, and don't expect you'll be able to go as fast as on a good street.
Sidewalks are a different story. Generally not enough space to steer and the cracks can be bad enough to stop your board entirely. Same with the sheer amount of debris. Try them if you want but expect to fall way more than on a street.

missing hardware, although the smart move is to buy it at a hardware store anyway
Hardware stores are overpriced for fasteners. Get 50 packs on mcmaster and never buy hardware again.

Park City was a Jerry-ass shithole way before Vail ever took over. Bunch of weekend warrior faggots with rental gear crashing into you in the lift lines with their entitled, loud family of four.

Vail Resorts does suck major cock though.
what they did at stevens is the worst. they can't even open half the lifts bc all the ski patrol quit.
they have a no visible face hair policy! for ski patrol! personally i wouldn't want anyone without a thick wooly alpine chadbeard digging me out, no homo. last week i saw a dude yelling out the GMs personal phone number at the lift line while we waiting past 11am for the double d lift to open

fuck vail fuck skiers fuck jannies

at least at buttermilk that policy basically meant you show up on the first day with a beard or without one but you don't grow a beard while you're on company time.

i think it's the opposite. much easier to take a hard fall on a skateboard because riding a bike is much easier by nature.

martial arts usually teaches you how to fall. sign up for judo or Jiu Jitsu.

Looks gay, I want to get an EUC
so many fags in sf are rolling around on these and electric longboards, complete with work khaki's, bike helmets, and diagonal strap laptop satchels. and then carrying em around everywhere bc their "skateboard ran out of batteries" unironically the absolute pinnacle of poser faggotry in all history
I'll never understand why diagonal bags are so popular for the kind of shit, they're less stable, and unless you have that extra little strap to go around the other side they can and will swing around getting in your way. Just wear a normal backpack ffs.
Does that even kickflip..?

found a video of connor macgregor doing systema exercises

what you need is gun-kata. chinese assailants are well known to only use melee weapons when they outnumber a white guy. you should be able to take minimal damage if you work on your landing skills. you need to be able to fall 2 stories without being too hurt to run.
>entire small government
>chinese gangsters
he's going against the human trafficking arm of the entire CCP
The power!!! :O
I sparred with somebody who was working on this sort of technique at the time. It hurts bad. The arms become all loose and slow, feeling like frayed rope.

Just started BJJ but I found out there is also legit Judo AND Sambo schools in my area. Would it be useful as a beginner to drop in to there places as supplementary training? Should I wait until I'm a bit better at BJJ first? I might be moving in the next 1 or 2 years so I'm antsy to take advantage of what's here
Yes it would be very useful to crosstrain.
judo is more complete than bjj is by a long shot

Why is nosesiving called pearling?
Why did you link that instead of posting it?
Surfing isn't about standing up. The standing up part is the climax. It's like sex. Saying you wouldn't surf because the ride is only a few seconds is like saying you won't have sex with a beautiful girl cause the orgasm lasts a second. Surfing is about paddling, being out in the water, reading the waves, catching the waves is the orgasm, except unlike sex you can climax over and over again in a two hour session. Depending on your skills and conditions of course.
>*slaps your wave on the ass*

How do you react?
i undulate between feeling bad for these dudes because they tend to be older guys who are just finding their buzz and are friendly enough despite everyone else hating them, and then having them snake the best wave of the set from a mile out and wanting them to slip over on their fucking ocean liners, brain themselves on the deck and bleed out in the ocean with nobody going to help them.

I'm thinking about buying a Nukeproof Giga or a Canyon Torque. What would you buy?
10 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>Direct to consoom during a parts drought

Good plan, enjoy your 9 month wait for any warranty parts
Okay I bought it
There's def some lower threshold for a proper bike but anything after 3-4k is generally unnecessary for casual riders. Canyon definitely hits that sweet spot. There's always the temptation to bling out your bike though...
Nice. The "internal" routing on this bike is definitely easier to work with than going through the whole process of routing cables through a frame on other bikes but it's still sort of a pain in the ass to work with.

>What is bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of free climbing that is performed on small rock formations or artificial rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses.

>What is the difference between bouldering and rock climbing?
bouldering requires no equipment to get started.
hold and footholds are way smaller which means it has different techniques, styles and body positions. it also means that you have to strategize and think!

what do you anons think about bouldering?

Every time I fight my friends who are 25-40lbs below me is just like fighting children
I was only about 125lb when I did MMA actively and used to train with a friend who was 220lb. As far as striking went, for me it was purely avoidance and my only viable strikes were kicks, if landed any even poorly executed blow it was over for me. For groundwork that got interesting if he could keep his mass over me it was done, but flexibility meant unless me got me into the hold RIGHT AWAY there was a solid chance I could bend myself out of it. They only time I "won" in a practice fight against him was when I baited him to go to the ground for a hold and then writhed out and got up faster and managed to get some good hits in while he was getting up. That trick worked exactly once.

Meh. I prefer high level sabre, if you want to see some great bouts (great for reasons most of you can probably realistically not understand) then these are the best to review from a technical standard.

Kovalev vs Szilagyi at the 2013 world championships semifinals. Footage from this event is very hard to find.

Pozdniakov vs Covaliu 2005. Amazing bout, although the bias from the ref is why pozniakov loss (he should have adapted to the bullshit calls but hey that's sabre) https://youtu.be/mO8erCnktTU

If you want to know what sabre fencing is supposed to look like, these are it.

>also fuck HEMA fags
Fencelet here, so other than Epee, if you strike first you better hit. Because if you miss or parried you're basically fucked?
Then why not just practice for the counter every game?
Foil here. If you're quick enough to can counter parry/counter riposte if your attack doesn't land. Countering is also tricky to do in foil because of right of way, but it can work sometimes.
just watch utube vids for footwork
