I actually do like small wheels for flip tricks, it just becomes too hard to keep speed with them in big tranny at a point
>>
>>109872
I see. My local is like, the smallest stock option, so we don't have any pools. I have some small, hard wheels that I got for flips and stuff. They're really fun in my garage. (Surprisingly, they feel just like my stock element wheels, but more responsive/bouncy because of their size. I wasn't aiming for that, but they feel like a bump stock on an awp.) Sadly, I can't do many tricks, either, but I trust you know what you're talking about in regards to transition stuff. I wouldn't dare ride them on the streets, where I live.

franky villani is one of the best skaters out right now, there's no excuses and I don't think that he's ever actually been that skinny.
>>
shop contests are pretty fun because you get to skate the park and chill with everyone during the downtime, they're almost more like a cookout than anything.
xgames type shit is cool for the spectacle maybe once or twice, but pretty much everyone i know just watches it on tv now because it's less of a hassle & at these kind of events you're basically just watching the jumbotron the most of the time anyway.
standing on the top deck for superpipe feels pretty fucking cool though.

big dudes look kind of rad on a board when they know how to use it. i feel like falling as a fatty has got to be way harder on your body.

You can't rape a punk. My band director taught me that. He also convinced me to stay in IT, indirectly, which led to me picking up a skateboard but also cost me my leg muscles, so I take that back; maybe you can rape a punk?

Thinking of getting 56, do you use risers or got hi trucks?
>>
>>110102
Yes

Trucks size is standard (hollow indys). No extreme wheelbiting so far. I’d say get some risers only for the low profile ones. Otherwise you can rock it just fine without them

I love Nujabes, but you can do better than hip hop and lowfi backing tracks.

>>110040
Try looking at a different spot on the ground/board. I'mma bet that you're trying to spot your landing too early, turning your head, which turns your shoulders, which turns your hips, etc. I do that shit all the time too. There's this one box that I like to ollie over at my local that's on a slight incline, and for some reason it's much harder to stay straight going uphill rather than downhill, but I'd bet it's that it's easier to focus on rolling while going downhill and so it's easier for me to look straight down when I ollie.

I actually think he slays, unfortunately. he's a super famous skater/olympic athlete and he's pretty attractive. he lives in venice where girls are probably into his hippie dippy bullshit. and it's not like normie girls can tell what kind of skating is kooky and what isn't. they just see some faux-enlightened dude shredding up a skatepark with a bunch of cameras on him.

just skate faster and it will solve most of your problems. if you skate fast, you can't be all wiggly-wobbly and flailing around. it forces you to do things in a more intense, deliberate manner.
>>
>>110207
That's true, in the vid i saw of me i was going pretty slow but if im going faster i usually look better

>>110072

>>110136
Accidentally? I landed a heelflip to manual on the manny pad.
>>
>>110224
Yeah, I tried to do that one trick (hardflip???) where you pop and kick the nose down into a sort of impossible flip while also kickflipping the board around 180 degrees. Was just trying to see if I could make it do the flip before putting my feet down, but accidentally just kickflipped it and landed it. It's like the 5th one I've ever done.

Is Shoe Goo usuable on soles? I have a hole in that one spot under the ball of my lead foot. Never used the stuff before but I assume it's more for tears on the actual body of the shoe?

It'll probs be hard and uncomfy but I don't see why you shouldn't just try it anyway.
>>
>>110113
Yeah Im unsure if I should get risers for my thunder his since theyre a bit lower then indies. Riding 55mm bonest stf on them(probably 54mm now) and I never get wheelbite cruising but if I pinch the pocket when landing or doing goofy shit Ill wheelbite and die. Maybe Ill get them when I get a big fat 58-60mm cruiser wheel.

Gonna spend any free time I have grinding out heelflips tho. I need to get them consistent and I’m pissed i didn’t try more on Sunday before the sun got me

i'm not even trying to be a dick but he just looks so like frail and sickly looking. what do people see in his skating?
>>
>>110279
I don't know, I share your opinion. I just don't speak it out loud, because saying someone looks like they have cancer is a bit fucked. Could have said that he looks like IM Weasel or something.
>>
>>110279
hes really good at skating has great style and a charismatic personality. he doesnt look sickly hes like 33 what is wrong with you retard
>>
>>110231
you can do it but youll be replacing it every other sesh if not every sesh. the trick is that you have to actually cut and sand down the shoe goo so that it perfectly fits in the hole and theres nothing left outside the hole to start peeling. it also helps if you do this is layers like put a little in the hole wait for it to dry for like an hour, cut the excess around the hole, sand it, put another layer etc. I used to do this and put the shoe under a garage/basement work light that ran really hot so the glue dried faster you could use a hair dryer. again ymmv and this is something only the poorest kid should be doing a pair of emericas/etnies can be had for 30 dollars.

>>110277
I have to agree with the other anon, max doesn’t appear sickly to me either. He has a proper build for a man, he’s for sure within 6ft height territory and is lean but not frail. The balding is unfortunate but is a sign of High T and the level of fucks he’s give about it (zero) just makes him that much cooler. Everything about max radiates comfort. He just seems content. He’s not my fave skater in the world but I appreciate how he goes out of his way to skate things that are not meant to be skated. I understand the appeal. He’s not trying to be a pseudo intellectual about his skating like suicu. He has an unconventional approach to skating while still keeping it tasteful and interesting.

If you are 33 and you are that skinny you should see a doctor, you probably have some kind of medical condition.

High dht doesn't mean you have high testosterone. It just means your body converts your dht to testosterone at a higher rate. Seriously, you don't know what you're talking about. People haven't believed that testosterone leads to baldness for like 20 years at this point.
