Barefoot master race edition

What's going on fellow slackers? This general will be a space for discussing all things related to the extreme form of slacklining known as highlining. Feel free to ask questions and share your experiences.

How has COVID interfered with your plans, bros? What are your favorite spots?

Are slacklining in high heels good too?

Really want to try highlining but I live in flatland.

And yeah barefoot is the way to go, can't even imagine wearing shoes on the line must be awkward as fuck.

Im considering buying airsoft guns and hiring some sort of expert and make him try to shoot me, and also teach me counter-gun drills,movements,techniques.
is this realistic? is this a good idea? I feel im going to get mugged at gun point sooner or later,specially given how much crime is escalating in my country.

Is it possible to learn to defeat an armed thug bare-handed?

As someone who drives a car and like most other motorists, has to put up with shithead roadbikers everyday, I feel confident in saying that they can all go and fuck themselves with a spiked club.
But mountainbikers I've got no problems with at all. You guys do you; you're alright.

Sounds that you are not servicing/maintaining your brakes properly. Treat them like shit, they perform like shit. I ran guides for two years without any issue.
>>
>>19006
I had an oem set of avid brakes that had the levers rivited on and captive barrel springs so you couldn't repair them if they fucked up (Which they of course did.)

Avid haven't changed their lever/piston design in about 15 years, and it was a fucking shitty design to start with.

To give them their due, their brakes do actually work to some degree now, which they didn't used to. They still feel shit though, That being said, if you're buying aftermarket, literally anything else is better for the price.

The SRAM umbrella and OEM is all that has kept Avid alive, Rockshox and SRAM actually make decent stuff, Avid and Truvativ have only survived because of allowing SRAM to sell builds for full build bikes, they would have died on their arse otherwise.

I still fucking wish Shimano had bought Marzocchi and absolutely destroyed sram build kits by offering shimano/Zocchi ones.

Only to non-divers like my mum.
Extremely cool but much like skydiving at a recreational level it's also mostly just an extreme pain in the ass.

I always remember the school I did my SDI through going on about how once you'd done the quals you could easily do it in a morning 1-2 hours.

Surprise, it's like 1-2 hours prep for 1 hr bottom time and then 1-2 hours to clean everything and return.

I haven't been back...

Now that /asp/ has been resurrected as /xs/, it's time for a parkour thread. I've been getting back into parkour the last couple months and I have to say I missed it as much as I missed old /asp/. Where are you at with your training? How have you been working around the lockdown chains of Corona-chan? How much do you apply the utilitarian Hébertist mindset of being strong to be useful to your training routines?

I guess freerunners can post, too. Maybe even gymnasts and trickers if you don't get your own thread up and running.

Yes, it IS dying. Lots of people still do it, but it's in a massive decline. When did this start? I quit in 2010 because my smallish town's local skatepark closed, causing the group of friends to just succumb to adulthood and eventually go separate ways. Recently my interest peaked and I was watching videos online before I buy a new setup, noticed that brands are dead, variety is stagnant, and videos just don't get views. Is it a culture thing or a demographic thing? Did it start back around 2010 when I quit? It would make sense because the majority of skaters back then were no more than 10 years older or younger than me, so everyone is getting old now. Did they all succumb to adulthood? I regret it, but I'll still skate by myself.

When did all this fudd shit start? I've been skating since 1998 and recently took a few year hiatus after moving to another country for work. During those few years, I consumed no skate media, not even YouTube videos. The last thing I remember was early Berrics. Recently started back and looking at YouTube videos. Everything is so focused on talking about board setups, "muh pop" and "muh pinch" and "muh indies." When did this shit start? I've literally always grabbed a different pair of trucks and deck everytime I needed a new setup. They all feel within a tiny margin of eachother. You get used to your new board after an hour at the park. Are these low-levels just repeating fudd lore?... or is all the new shit really that bad? I'm skating my 10 year old Ventures.

> if you can skate on "x" brand you can skate a "y" too.
of course you can. but you dont need to be genius to figure out that different trucks do different things

Jamie Foy can ride for literally any truck company in the world, yet he chooses thunders, rides wheels that are sharper on the edge, and skates a mellow kicked deck. The exact things that would help you out in riding a crook on a rail as long as possible. Pros make more money from shoes than any other product, meaning they have little reason to have any loyalty to a skate gear brand other than they actually do the things they want them to do.

Im (sort of) a skate photographer and I'm often in the company of people who are actually pro, and most of them have a good amount of neurosis when it comes to gear. there are those who genuinely dont give a shit but that's because their sponsors are thinking about it for them.

pic related, photo I took of jamie last I saw him
