Probably the best tutorial channel on youtube right now. I quit skating when I was 16 and I'm picking it up again at 25. I imagine a lot of dudes on this board are in the same boat. BTFOs the scientologist on a fraction of the budget.

I'm really happy I found this channel. It comes across as corny and unironically feels like it was produced in 2002 as a VHS lessons video, but the nuance in how he explains and breaks down tricks is the best. Also wanna shout out SKATE HACKS.

Is 32 years old too old to get back into snowboarding? I tried it a bit as a kid, and I need a hobby. I also live in a snow-covered state
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>14033
At 32 you should know the answer to this question desu. Too old for what? To become a world champion? Probably. To do it as a hobby? Why would there be an age limit on that? As long as your body can handle it I don't see any reason why you woud be too old.
>>
>>14033
If you only want it as hobby than you have time until osteoporosis start knocking so you have a long time to enjoy it as hobby.

Dude, I started snowboarding at 30.

Plus, there's plenty of oldfuck snowboarders out there. Snowboarding has been around for like 40 years.

No, just may take longer to build the core muscles. More intense recovery days. Wear a helmet and have health insurance.

I just think paintballs are really neat and I collect photos of them, am I probably autistic or something?
I'd physically collect them if they weren't perishable, I wish I could go back in time and start collecting vintage balls and preserving them in acrylic or something

How do I get better at rails friends.
>>
>>17711
Have an aggressive position (ankles pressing against the front of the boot) at takeoff so you don't slip out once you're on the rail. Once you figure that out it's just a matter of repetition so you can find the balance to stay on rails without coming off early. Once you can ride any rails you want at least semi-consistently try 2s out and once you learn how to do opposite side you can learn switch ups and stuff too. At least that's how I learned.

longboarding is dead. it had a great run up to ~8 years ago but it's unironically over. the industry was inflated by all the zumiez sales of sector 9's to college poser fags who couldn't take it downhill bc they could barely skate in the first place. liam morgan put all that money up his nose and now they're left with a legacy worse than rollerblading and razor scooters put together.

All things related to exploring and climbing abandoned and not-so-abandoned buildings.

READ THIS FIRST!!

Unless your idea of fun involves dying from internal bleeding in a pit underneath a caved in floor, always go with a partner. Provided you have one, urban exploration isn't actually all that dangerous. But make sure to take someone who isn't a pussy or a faggot, you know what I mean, alright?

ESSENTIAL GEAR:
PROPER CLOTHES (THIS IS FIRST AND IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT BY FAR! YES MORE IMPORTANT THAN FOOD AND WATER. WHY? YOU CAN'T DRINK WATER IF YOU'RE ALREADY FROZEN TO DEATH OR PASSED OUT FROM HEAT STROKE. BRING APPROPRIATE WEAR FOR THE WEATHER)

FOOD AND WATER (ALL CAPS BECAUSE ITS ALSO REALLY IMPORTANT. Bring AT LEAST 1 liter of water, but not too much because water is damn heavy)

Flashlight (There are a fuck ton of dark places that show up in places that people don't tend to go that often, so bring one AND A BACKUP ONE TRUST ME ON THIS) Headlamps are also cool and allow you to have your hands free.

Money - cash for emergencies.

>>18337
yea (no)
>>
>>18419
you'll more than likely be able to look at the floor and detect if it's weak or not. When stepping on it if it flexes at all then probably not a good idea to walk around on it.
>>
>>6571
More useful gear would be a cheat gas monitor as well since h2s and CO often kills in places like sewage pipes and any area with decaying matter, low oxygen also occurs places with rust and kills people exploring things like rusted hulls and containers.
EN149 should be necessary for old decaying buildings, they're often like 90% asbestos.

Yeah but more because of the trucks than the board. You can still treflip it and kickflip it. It just takes a bit more effort. You get used to it pretty quickly.
