I got no idea. That's why I joined a local club, they have a FREEE beginners course next week so I hope I learn something.
Start taking easy registered mountain paths in the spring and summer. Try to find a rythm, if you sweat too much reduce walking speed, sweating in the winter is dangerous. Get in a team with licensed mountaineers to teach you and guide you. There is a lot of techniques and ways to keep safe but ultimately it is the art of walking. Don't go to alone and dont get lost in the afternoon, you will die. Don't challenge the elements too often you will get hurt

Do you wash it and if you dont waht does it smell like
You weren't alive in '01, frogtard.
took me fucking forever to learn it, so yeah it really does
bought a board for the first time in forever, still can't ollie ama
Remember that you must first go down to go up.
Keep your shoulders aligned with your feet. Pop your board, slide your front foot to level it out and suck that back foot up. You can do it. Keep practicing.

how exceptable is it to post videos of you skating here? if so please feel free to do so is this thread

Why is korea so bad at everthing? all their martial arts are frauds. the only real teakwondo masters died out like 30 years ago, even the ITF is watered down a lot. Don't even get me started on taekkyeon.

Kyokushin was founded by a korean
Haedong Gumdo is probably one of the most hilarious of the Korean fraud arts. All the creators did was dress up in haori and hakama and use wushu movements intended for jian and dao swords but with katanas instead. That and as is custom with Korean bullshitting throw in pointlessly florid acrobatics to what should have been simple and straightforward movements.

And they might have gotten away with it longer if they didn't make up a ridiculous story about their sword arts being handed down from "samurang" that taught the Japanese how to be samurai many many thousands of years ago.

Does anybody have a template for progressions in different elements?

Also, how important are basics (pull ups, push ups, dips ...) in this sport? Or is it more of a skill practice?
Overcoming Gravity 2nd Edition has pretty good progressions.

Who? Tony Hawk? He's a vert skater, they all wear helmets. And Hawk is a millionaire, he had countless surgeries that would financially ruin a normal person.

Motherfucker are you going to masturbate to a fucking silhouette?
Tell her that just because it has the word "park" in the name doesn't mean it's a children's area. It's an area for people of all ages and adults have an equal right to utilize the space as the kids do.

get to work
yell at me mommy.
you never tell us the story, you just say you get yelled at/get the cops called on you. I remember your photo from before. I can only assume you're acting like a dick if you manage to get in all these confrontations, or just skating way too aggressive around kids.

background is beautiful tho lol, what state?

Where my track day riders at? This was last month at Thunderhill.

Sydney Motorsport Park.
Was thinking I should try CSS or their motoDNA course before trying a track day at SMSP. Should I just go for it or is it necessary to get training first?
I'm pretty sure if you have a bike, riding gear, etc and just pay the fee/s they'll let you ride around on a track day if that's all you want. Having said, I think things like MotoDNA/California Superbike School would be better to do first (although I haven't done them). Everything I've seen and read online from people who went to those courses makes it seem like they're pretty good courses; I think I'd do at least one or two before going to track days.
So the cool thing about track days is they are VERY beginner friendly. If you show up, or even call and tell them you're a new rider/new to track they will take care of you.

The superbike schools and specifically YCRS(Yamaha champ riding school) will boost you farther than you ever thought possible for riding.

I can't recommend track riding enough.
The only riding school endorsed by Yamaha in Australia is the MotoDNA one mentioned by anon a couple of posts up. YCRS looks like it's only in New Jersey, which is a long way from SMSP.

I'm thinking about buying an electric skateboard suitable for all terrain riding.
Is Ebay a good place to find this type of thing?
Also what is this trick called in picrel?
You didn't really post a trick

Hes just grabbing the board.

If he was doing an ollie or in the air with it, could be a reverse japan air

Japan air is grabbing behind the board though, so not sure what this called
Ditch the electric bit and build yourself a regular old cruiser

You see, this was really the crux of my post, that I didn't really mention.
Is the road bigger?
Is the board too little for the road?
Is the dude too little for both the board and the road?
Is there a monster grapping his other hand?

I only rollerblade because my hero (shadow the hedgehog) has inspired me to do so.

Ya it could be because you overeat certain meats that cause gout. Could be other reasons too

Try cutting back on bad foods in your diet. High sugar, fried foods, alcohol, etc

Research superfoods and only eat those

You're welcome

If it's not that you could just go get a shot for it

Engineering-wise, would it be all that hard to build trucks with pressure-dependent suspension that activates during the moments of lock-up to get over rocks and cracks?
first of all faggot you're riding on fucking 62mm cruiser wheels so pebbles are not even a problem for you to begin with. second of all why the fuck are you on here giving advice when your skateboard has not collected a single spec of dirt over the course of a month
That's a pretty gay setup for real he's not lying
There's levels to everything, that one takes years

There was this dude he hung out with in Cky called "Mike Vallely", and he was the douchiest blowhard I've ever seen.

He was a 5'8" balding manlet who looked like he hit the gym maybe twice a week to do only chest and arms, and he would get super aggro over nothing in order to look like the "tough one" of the crew; which isn't really much of an accomplishment, because the bar isn't set very high in the first place. His accomplishments included scattering 4 timid teenagers by flailing his arms like a windmill, and shoving a middle-aged mall cop away while the security guard was just trying to do his job.

He also had a brief stint as a hockey enforcer, where presumably his appreciation for violence might serve some sort of purpose, but then, to absolutely NO ONE'S surprise, the MOMENT he had to fight someone as strong, or stronger than him, who was equally as fond of violence as he was, he got his shit pushed in regularly. Never won a single fucking hockey fight in his life and was CONSTANTLY getting thrown to the ice.

The guy was the definition of coked up blowhard.

Mike Vallely, ladies and gentlemen. A possible contender for "faggiest skater in all of existence". Possibly faggier than even Bam Margera himself.
