/sp/ is too fast for /marble/ during non-Marble League periods, so this could be the base for this extreme sporting event during most of the year

>News
Marbula One Season 2 returns from its break starting with race 7
Oceanics managed to win the 2021 Winter Marble League, redeeming themselves after their disastrous 2019 Marble League outing

>What is Marble League?
The Marble League is a tournament that features the most decorated and dedicated marble sports athletes. Every year, teams of five marbles compete in Qualifiers and the top 12 teams, along with 4 automatically qualified teams, advance to the main tournament. After an exquisite opening ceremony, the 16 teams perform in a series of events that are inspired by real-world Olympic events, earning medals and scoring points towards an overall total. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament is the team that wins the Marble League, standing at the top of the podium during the closing ceremony and having the honor of extinguishing the torch at the end of each year.

Been skateboarding for a while, but live in a pretty rural area so my regular skateboard is honestly useless outside of parks. Lots of smooth bike paths though, and I decided to get into longboarding because why the fuck not. I like carving and I wanna be able to do it right outside my home.
Was torn on either the Landyachtz Drop Hammer or Loaded Icarus. Ended up ordering the latter. Hope I didn't fuck up.

im assuming you're talking about the adapter? I'm a complete beginner to surfskating without any hardware or a deck unfortunately. Was wondering where I should start. Mostly concerned about balance, wheelbase, and the size of the deck if that even matters (from what ive been reading wheelbase is crucial)

F1 driving, jetfighter piloting and being shot into space come close to wingsuiting. But even if all of these require masterful re-evaluation of the present and adaptation to survive, they don't require it as much as wingsuiting does.
Wingsuiting is the most extreme movement humans can establish that I have ever witnessed.

Show me something greater, something more extreme, if you think there is anything else.

/DGG/ Disc Golf General
>What is disc golf?
Its golf but with frisbees or discs. Generally played at parks that have free courses.
>What do I need to get started?
A disc and some shoes to walk around comfortably. (You should probably also bring some water anon and maybe download UDisc for a scorecard, or print / make your own)
>I'm new what disc should I buy?
Pretty much any decent frisbee or disc will get you out and playing. Don't buy a starter set immediately, instead buy an innova skeeter as its a pretty easy to throw disc for a beginner and then buy more discs from there.
>Are there courses around me?
Almost certainly, check https://www.dgcoursereview.com/ for a pretty comprehensive list of courses and recommendations as to what ones near you are good.
>I bought a starter set and cant throw these things straight or far at all!
Go onto youtube and lookup guides idiot. Also learn to throw your putter first. It's most likely the easiest disc to throw in your bag and just because it doesnt fly as fast as a fairway or driver disc, It'll probably fly farther as It WILL fly straighter.

Most people you meet out on a disc golf course are gonna be pretty chill guys who'll either help you out if u get a disc stuck in a tree, or even give u a quick tip if you're new.

Feel free to post photos from your local courses or discs.

>>72141
It incorporates enough to be effective. Punches, kicks, knees, takedowns, ground fighting and submissions if I remember correctly. With all jack of all trade styles it comes down to the skill of the teacher and the skill of the fighter. You'll see a broad range from garbage to impressive if you look around.
If there was a good Pankration teacher around me I think I'd give it a shot.

Is river walking basically one massive, infinitely long step back turn? OP's video looked like it. As someone who's never has been surfing, is that basically the skill set you'd want to work with?

Depends on your build. I can tell you the 11'6" board I have is a little unstable in high wind, but I'm also 5'10", pushing 200lbs and have shit balance.

I wouldn't say quick pivot step back turns are the essential skill but very handy if you can do it. It maximizes the board area you can cover comfortably. That's the main difference going from flat to moving water, you will need to be comfortable moving / walking / jumping around your board instead of staying in a fixed stance. If you are new try cross stepping up and down the midline of your board till you get used to how it rocks on every weight transfer. If you keep the center of gravity over the midline that is the key. Also being able to get your mass low in a hurry whilst doing this will help you when things get unexpected. Doing squats and jump foot transitions are v good to improve your skillset.

That’s one hell of a complicated way to say “J-stroke” ha ha
Reminder Jeff Snyder was doing this decades ago.
Try and track down an old vid called Full On. Mostly kayaking but I’m pretty sure he’s in a section towards the end.
He called it “striding”.

Hey /xs/,

I know we're a slow board, but I was looking to see if you guys wanted to have a team in the cup. If you're unfamiliar, nearly every board has a representative team in a site-wide internet autism celebration. Once wrestling moves to /asp/, the /xs/ side of things ended up nearly off of the team. We'll need a logo (or I can throw one together), but I'm looking for ideas for the roster (they're for shitposts from the board.) There's 23 spots, with 11 starters. There's also the 2 "silver" and 2 "gold players that are better then everyone else on the pitch, and these are the most prominent players on the team.

If this interests you, just toss some ideas (or tell me to fuck off if that's your call)

Comp is acrobatics edition

>Should I start climbing?
Yes. Get a friend, find your closest gym, go there and rent some shoes. Start with bouldering, usually two tape marks set the start of the route and the color of the tape is difficulty (look for the color-difficulty chart on some wall somewhere). Route is the same-colored grips up until the topmost grip (not edge of wall). Two hands on the last grip = you've sent it, congratulations.

>How do I start toproping?
You have to learn how to belay. That same gym you just went to probably has reoccurring toprope courses which teach you how, it's not very difficult. Same grip-color system as with the bouldering, but here it's more common with each route having a specific grade instead of being within a range of grades. The grading system differs internationally, ask that guy at the gym who climbs without a shirt and moans obnoxiously loud for more info.

>I just bought a BeastMaker 2000™, will I finally git gud?
No. You'll just fuck up your ligaments. Google "Eva Lopez fingerboard".

Palp your pulleys to see if it's the pulley or the tendon that's damaged, if it's the tendon lightly loading it twice a day and stretching it helps recovery (geek climber and that one swedish pro who's name I forgot talk about this somewhat)
I've had tendon injuries where I could barely close my hands for a few days in which case (for me) it's about 1.5/2 weeks before you can climb on easy stuff again and 5 weeks till it's fully healed (you can still feel pain due to your nervous system fucking up)

This is cool and all, but being able to kick your board out from under you and rolling it off is a skateboarding thing. When bladers fuck up a big trick they usually fall really badly, and I was wondering how their bodies can take such impacts without debilitating injuries.
>>
>>56188
Yeah I picked up a pair of Roces M12's and fuck me dead, it's like skating on rails with bricks strapped to your feet compared to free skates.
I'm only on them now, but I do not get how people skate this, also question for others here, how in fuck do you guys maintain speed with anti-rocker frames? I feel as soon as I hit flat I instantly loose all speed, and sometimes I don't even make it up the box in the middle, while I watch other inline skaters hit the box so fast they literally air the rest of the box at the top.
>>
>>71195
A lot of bladers secretly wear padding under clothes I've noticed.
What I don't get is how they don't break their wrists almost daily, I've broken my wrists twice this past year alone. All it takes is the back wheel clipping coping when you drop the half and it's a 5ft drop on your wrists instantly.
As lame as it is, I wear wrist guards while doing aggressive now, rather skate and put up with the "safety" lameness than several months off due to broken wrists.
>>
>>69248
Build a p-rail it's cheap and easy. It makes learning grinds a lot easier because it's low to the ground and you can hit it over and over without waiting.
>>
>>71833
just got some m12s myself. havent done this since the 90s. been having some fun i can do some basic grinds on low edges, but skates are pretty heavy dont know how people jump as high as they do.

hey guys, this might be a long post, sorry for that
I recently moved to a large city (cca 1mil ppl, biggest in my country sry) because I enrolled to uni (trying to give myself a 2nd chance and stuff, nvm that) and was thinking of getting a bike bcz I don't wanna waste money on trams and it's pretty good for getting to places fast,
but today I saw a guy riding a skateboard and, since some of my buddies ride skates etc, an idea came to me that I should just ride a skate to uni and back, since it's much cheaper than an average bike (I could buy a new skate for less than 30 euro)
so I guess my question is, what would you reccomend to a beginner 26yo cca 186cm tall (I guess 6'1-2-3'' for you ameriturds), cca 73kg (I guess 150lb)? how do I maintain balance and how do I turn and shit?
I just wanna ride the skate to uni and back (and ofc to other places), I'm not interested in doing any tricks, at least not for now
>inb4 longboard
they just seem kind of gay to me, no offense, sry, and I might wanna do an ollie here and there so there's that too
also, is 30euro too cheap for a full board? what is your recc?
anything else you add is valuable info for me so thanks in advance
>>
wouldnt recommend buying a cheap skateboard because they are suck and a waste of money. you want to spend at least $100 on a good skateboard and since you're gonna be riding around and not so much doing tricks you will want to spend a lot of money on a good set of bearings. the bearings are most important. also recommend you have them oiled or whatever every couple of months or so and have em cleaned too. wheels dont rly matter and same with trucks. just invest in good bearings and u will be good. or u can just go longboard which is way better for cruising vs a skateboard. longboard > skateboard all the way for transportation purposes
