You NEED to do your daily tribute heelflip to me or I'll die irl.
fuck bootersfuck scootersfuck streetfuck vulcsfuck waxfuck baggy clothesfuck shitted gayterfuck double-kick boardsfuck small boardsfuck hard wheelsfuck tiny wheelsfuck rodneyfuck natasfuck gonzkill roccofuck frostfuck the gramfuck metal copingfuck """"""""""""""""""style""""""""""""""""""and fuck you toorip philpod, grosso, and schneer
What's the best way to say "I landed these cleaner off camera" without sounding like a liar?
>>109849Sir, this is not a heelflip.
>>109837based except for vulcs and hard wheels
the new bronze x dc video is really good>>109849I wish I knew, ill land a trick multiple times clean but the second i set my phone up I cant do it and when I finally do its sloppy and my arms are flailing everywhere.
>>109849"I'm camera-shy" or "The wind was blowing, like, really strong, man. You just can't tell because my hair is super stiff and my clothes are made of hairspray."
>>109859You don't like tiny wheels? :c
goddamn i forgot how heavy this part washttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=60C5eK8Sm2Y
>>109865I actually do like small wheels for flip tricks, it just becomes too hard to keep speed with them in big tranny at a point
>>109872I 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.
>>109837CringeDon't ever talk about gonz like that or I'll beat the shit out of you boy
>>109837>fuck street>fuck small boards>fuck metal copingwtf is up with this list do you exclusively skate big air?
>>109876rocco is prob the best thing to ever happen toskateboarding too
Bros i'm sick of fucking working 6 days a week
What's everyone's favourite thing to skate? Is there a specific obstacle in your locak park/street spot that you love the most?
>>109894I basically only skate the bowl at this point. I like it because 90% of the time i am the only one skating it.
>>109894im a ledge boi myself, love me a good ledgehttps://youtu.be/eytEaKgwAMo
>>109894honestly i just like going fast and jumping shit.
is it worth getting tickets to sls? Never been before and it's apparently the first time it's being hosted near where I live..
>>109849I was just wickity warming up yo
>>109899how much are the tickets?
look at this man here and tell me you don't want to be able to do that I cannothttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3jvFp9krXM
>>10990830 bucks a pop
>>109909A stationary manual is pointless so I really don't care if I could or couldn't do it.
>>109914thats not bad for the experience and to say you did it i guess. they serve beer and shit? would be amazing if it was byob
>>109902You've got to be kickity kidding me!
>>109929Probably, but I don't drink. Looks like it would be cool though, I've never been to am actual skate competition as I've only been skating a couple years
>start loving skateboarding as a child>been "skating" for a long time>Also be fat>Anyone else who rode a skateboard avoids me like a plague>They clique up and progress together as I skate solo>Never really get past ollies, cruising, and some park terrain. >Years later, same kids drop skateboarding like a fly, move on to other hobbies or something to smoke. >Still here>Still pushing.>Still can't flip my board, fuck me. It's not a glorious story, but I just love skating, and wanna play with my skateboard until I'm unable.
>>109940Just start fasting bro
>>109941I gotta man.It's such a bizarre thing, but the idea of me getting big boy tricks is actually more appealing than the physique or the rest of the numerous benefits to getting slim.
ive been skating almost nothing but transition/curbs for the past like year and i tried to skate a knee high ledge and could hardly ollie up onto it this sucks but also battling basic tricks on the ledge was pretty boring and I left after an hour lol>>109937ive never been to an actual competition and ive been skating my whole life lol
>>109943>ive never been to an actual competition and ive been skating my whole life lolyeah, it's kinda weird, not like it's an nba game or anything comparable. It's just it's own thing
>>109940franky 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.>>109940big 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.
>>109949franky villani isn't even fat when you compare him to actual "fat" Americans
>>109940I would skate with you, I too have no one to skate with where are you from? Also I see some huge black dude on thrashers ig doing slappy's and other tricks, if he could do it so could you
should i buy the meme wheels?
>>109946ill just stick to events, demos, jams, clean ups, shop/community based contests, those are a lot of fun, drunk vs sober and queen of the park at fdr are sick
Tonight i will rape the local skater girl again
>>109968calm down tiago
>>109950Falling as a Fatboy is catastrophic lol.
>>109968Is it a real skater girl or an NYC skater "girl" though?
>>109968You 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?
>>109989why did your band director rape you?
>>109989why did you try to rape your band director?
>>109989anon raped and was raped by his band director during the sizzling sweltering hot summer of an unspecified year
>>109990>>109991>>109992Because he didn't want me to die, obviously. He wanted me to skate. Anyway, Winter was involved, too, unlike most people's skating experience in Canada.
Kid at my local Was throwing “wallride into boardslides” in his line with like zero effort and it fucked me up so hard.Idk how he did it. The ledge/wall is crust city USA and it looks so fucking clean.
How do I stop autistically opening up my shoulders backside when practicing ollie's? I'm goofy and after 6 months Bs 180s come out way easier than ollies
Skating my boy's mini ramp todayWill try get some pics and vids
>>110040Stop being scared.
>>109989He taught me perseverance through patience and not to care what other people think about me. "Uncool" helmets haven't saved me yet, but I'm sure they will.
I raped the skatergirl again
one of the guys at my local park let me skate his 8.5" and my board is like a 7.7" and its making me not want to skate until I can afford one but im broke as fuck this shit SUCKS
Nick Jensen is balding and I feel for him.
do you think he has ever seen a vagina?
>>110057>>110057/esg/ in a nutshell
>>110056I think he has had plenty of vagina
>>110059I think you've never seen a vagina either
>>110058Probably some eurofag who does circus tricksNot interested
>>110055hair is everything. i feel so bad for baldlets. >>110053here's your (you)
cant think of good music to use for a skate video so im probably going to default to nujabes and nujabes clones
>>110064If i was going to make a skate video i would avoid coon toons and instead put some classic old pop or something funNot a fan of black people
>>110055desu artfags can get away with a little bald.max palmer does it well
>>110072>a little It's over Nick, you have to accept it
>>110064https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJWtfDvK_Oshere you go
>>110072max palmer does NOT look "well" with his bald ass head, he just doesn't give a fuck, so it isn't distracting because hes not trying to constantly do weird combovers or hairstyles or wearing hats in weather that doesn't call for it. thats the real secret here. his hair is actually fucked up and he looks like a bum but he doesn't care so its fine
Just got some spitfire f4 classics in 56 and i have to say they feel much better than the conical fulls when skati g. Might be my fav wheel after ricta clouds. What are your fav wheels?
>>110088F4 Conicals OJ Elites for skating in parks
>>110084no, im set on this while attempting some suicidal stepshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT5c4qkre4U
>>110088Thinking of getting 56, do you use risers or got hi trucks?
>>110102Trucks 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
>>110066i hate when they use soul music or r&b in skate videos especially with white skaters, its so fucking lame and overdone now. >>110064use field recordings asmr
>>110119lol what are you talking about dude i can't even think of 5 recent videos featuring white dudes skating to soul music. do you even know what soul music is?
>>110119>>110122it was good in first lovehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-VRq4iRI8c
>>110122theres been more but this is the most recent offender >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-D_tXlt4PM
>>110128he's french, you know how they are
>>110064I love Nujabes, but you can do better than hip hop and lowfi backing tracks.>>110040Try 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.
Mini ramp session todayThis is my friend, he is in his 50s and kills it
How did everyone's weekend go?I accidentally landed a kickflip and my first flyout earlier.
>>110137It's super comfy but at the same time it's actually pretty big for a mini ramp, that extension is 7ft
>>110139the flat bottom looks short
>>110140Maybe a little bit but not noticeably, it's just fast
>>110054my homie got a new board and gave me his old 8.5 because i wanted to size up, really nice of him
LET'S FUCKNG GOOhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do9iX2IKfOI
>>110134looks sick and well maintained but i hate the not-a-mini/not-a-half-pipe height
>>110056I 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.
I've always suspected Andy Anderson smokes a ton of weed.
>>110193He doesn't go outdoors without a helmet, he probably thinks his penis goes in the chick's pisshole
Does anyone else have this thing happen where they see a video of them skating and you're just like what the FUCK how is my style that bad?
>>110201I notice how cute I am
>>110199ya on second thought I'm sure you get a lot more pussy, guy who posts about skateboarding on 4chan.
>>110201just 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.
>>110207That's true, in the vid i saw of me i was going pretty slow but if im going faster i usually look better
>>110136Accidentally? I landed a heelflip to manual on the manny pad.
>>110224Yeah, 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?
>>110231It'll probs be hard and uncomfy but I don't see why you shouldn't just try it anyway.
>>110113Yeah 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.
>>110136i did some manuals without ending up in extreme pain>>110185i did not except the shorts madness arc
any Polack can confirm if this site is legit https://selectshop.eu/ >or if anyone knows some other good euro sites t.hanks
>>110231It isn’t worth it. I tried it when I was a kid & the goo would eventually peel off with pushing. If your sole has worn through throw em out
>>110087he looks daddy sexy af
>>110244>palmer>daddy sexyWhat are you, 16?
>>110136Pretty chill. Almost died of heatstroke but I’m getting more comfortable with wallrides/the euro gap at my local park.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 Anybody have tips for when it flips behind you? I can’t get it to stay under me consistently
>>110222Is he like 5'5?
what do people even like about max palmer? he looks like he has cancer
>>110277That's messed up anon.
>>110278i'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?
>>110279I 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.
>>110279hes really good at skating has great style and a charismatic personality. he doesnt look sickly hes like 33 what is wrong with you retard
>>110231you 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.
>>110127dont you know this is cultural appropriation
>>110279do you like your men thicc?
>>110277I 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.
>>110283>he doesn't look sickly>>110222>10 inch arms>hunched over>considerably shorter than that woman>balding>meth face >>110289I like my men to look like men
>>110290>He has a proper build for a manIf you are 33 and you are that skinny you should see a doctor, you probably have some kind of medical condition.And balding is not a sign of high test lmao srsly nigger? Does he look like he has high test? Honestly man c'mon smdh
>>110296>I like my men to look like menlmao gay
>>110290This anon gets it. I also like that he doesn't use social media.
>>110297High levels of DHT is directly correlated to male patterned baldness. estrogen filled soi boys wouldn’t understand.
>>110303baldness is high testyou see this in lions too
tim pool wears cariumas lol
>>110297>>110296sounds like a lot of cop + seethe from somebody whos bad at skating and cant get laid
>>110303High 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.
>>110308that guy is a closet homosexual. you can tell by his bizarre fixation on Max Palmer's body. seriously who even thinks about weird shit like that? the guy is watching his footage but instead of seeing the skating he's obsessing about his arm size.
This is a high test man according to /esg/LmaoDoes he have AIDs?
>>110314>Does he have AIDs?nah but you probbaly do, faggot
>>110315Is max palmer your boyfriend? Is that why you're getting so defensive?
>>110303>>110306'im balding because I'm high test' is the oldest cope in the book
This gay is actually throwing a fit god damn
>>110320The original Chad
okay faggots stop arguing new louie lopez footy just dropped>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-A7pqw4Mxg
>>110322The blunt flip out thing was sick
shots fired at AO
>>110327I don't get it.
>>110322That was an oddly good song for a skate video.
>>110335Kickflip Body Varial.
>>110327is there bad blood w/ 917?i thought it was just a money thing
>>110263most pros are on the shorter side, sometimes surprisingly short. must be advantageous, having a lower center of gravity or whatever. I remember reading a comment on Slap that said something like, "every pro I see in person looks like a malnourished midget."
>>110277>what do people even like about max palmer? he looks like he has cancerwhat do those two things even have to do with each other? would you like him more if he was prettier and had a full head of hair? lmao.
>>110333>>110340>>110337I think this might have started with 917 putting out an 'Art School' deck that clearly mimics Quasi's style. the name seems to suggest that the style of design is amateurish.
>>110327amazing>>110337there was a complete lack of involvment on Alex Olsons part, like he didnt even show up to one of the premieres for the vid of his own company. this interview with him basically he admits he did everything wrong but hes such a egotistical hippie douche that hes like whatever man gotta move on those guys had to do their thing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fogGJyRc_Akin this slappals video people are grilling cyrus about whats going on with 917 and you can see the cogs working in his brain and he basically quit after this and everyone else with him https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djner650dbw>>110339its actually a muska flip
>>110340me 3 days into noshit
>>110345It's a hard flip you inbred.
>>110345>its actually a muska flipbody comes out regs, doesn't turn, therefore not any kinda frontside flip.
>>110347>>110349its a joke chill
>>110350i dont get the joke sry my apologies
>>110320This guy has the best ollies. Somehow insanely high but also chill as fuck looking.
>>110345so is that guy steve olson's son?
>>110353are you that out of the loop dude? "that guy" Alex Olson was a professional skater, featured in skate videos such as Fully Flared. perhaps you've never heard of that either. then he went on to create the board company 917, but you've probably never heard of that either right? lmao it's like you're trying to coolguy Alex Olson on 4chan
>>110134i cant help but imagine this ramp on a thps game and getting enough air to grind the powerlines and getting the electric zombie special
been skateboarding since 2009. havent practiced tricks in like a decade though I just skate around basically using it like a bike. Can I post here?
>>110354Yeah pretty much been totally out of the loop for the past decade, I vaguely remember his fully flared part although that vid was never my jam anyway.
>>110359>Can I post here?if you ollie up curbs at least, then sure. if you encounter a curb and stop, pick up your board, step up the curb, then set your board back down... then no you gotta go
>>110350just pretending to be retarded, right? lmao
Zack dowdy's DIY advice is so fucking retarded it makes my head hurt.
>>110201this just happened to me, dude at the park started filming me in an effort to point out things i was doing wrong and it made me want to not even skate i looked so bad lmao
>>110377did he just do that out of nowhere? i would have told them to fuck off if they did that to me without asking. what a prick. it's skateboarding not fucking golf
>>110378he was talking to me beforehand but yeah he just kinda posted up and started filming, dude was kinda kooky desu
I met skatemoss a few days ago and she smelled like sweat and lilac baby wipes
>>110351>>110364i mean its outrageous to call that a muska flip sorry these threads are full of retards who might actually think it was one
>set up a new board>manuals are instantly betteri'm sorry for doubting you wheelbase autists
>>110392What wheelbase you rockin?
>>110394went up to 14.25 from 14.032" from 31" in length as well which might be having a bigger impact i think
>>110378>i would have told them to fuck off if they did that to me without askingAnd you'd get your ass beat. Pussy bitchnigga. Public place. If you don't want to get filmed, then ask nicely or leave.
>>110398hmh my current deck is similiar to your old one.Definetly gonna go for a longer deck, my feet keep slipping off. Out of curiosity what trucks are you using and how do they affect your actual wheelbase?
>>109821What's the gossip on Chiagu?
>>110388Most retarded takes on trick names? For me, thinking that bluntslide is the lipslide equivalent of the board kickers, from kiddies who grew up only on rail chomping.And then, I have heard of people calling a backside boneless "judo plant".
>>110399kek. I highly doubt it.
>>110412And also raped. Like the local skatepark girl.
>>109821/esg/ demographics survey results
>>110416>under 16lmao bruh
>>110416>all those yurosDamn no wonder there's been so much talk about skatepark rape
>>110411i honestly dont give enough of a fuck to care about shit like that. i have to constantly skate away from autistic (in my eyes) conversations about trick names or how to do a trick. recently was witness to a 15 minute awkward conversation between a boomer and a 25yo about how to do frontside airs. like homie its not that hard you dont need to have some long ass convo about it just go do your fucking trick until you get it. >>110416>90% streetyeah sorry fellas but skating flat in an empty parking lot isnt street skating. and if all your doing is skating parks thats not street skating either. lmao at >11 responses
>>110425>skating flat in an empty parking lotparent's driveway*
>>110429oh yeah i briefly forgot how many people here are deeply scared of being kicked out of an empty parking lot/garage lol. but then theres also that guy whos scared to skate in front of his neighbors so >garage with the door closedshould have been an option still only 11 people responded when we probably have close to 50/60 semi-frequent posters. next time should leave the poll in the OP for a few threads.

I just learned about these shoes in this color and now i can't find any in my size
>>110056Does he have friends or is it all just a bunch of people who use him for youtube views?
>>110445fuck dude that was looking good too>>110444im actually going to try these new powell green dragon wheels after seeing andy and the 9 club guys reccomend them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FgWbL7FlbY theyre 93 duro and slide that sounds crazy. but to answer your question probably not really
>>110448>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6FgWbL7FlbYThat was a fucking ad. That Roger guy is such a goon.
>>110445omg wow you're cute do you want to be my skater bf? :)
>>110435I don't see them stepping it up with that dogshit heel area of the shoe.
>>110435Did they fix the soles yet? Mine practically melted away.
>>110452what the fuck are you doing to your shoes? i have never had a pair of shoes wear through the soles before the flick spots.
>>110449yeah no shit its so obviously an ad but I still wanna try them i mean look they do fucking slide thats crazy that would be a game changer for me trying to skate around crusty shit
>>110437Look at this bitch and her awful and nasty jaw movement and the way her mouth moves when she talks in general. You guys know what I'm talking about? A lot of people that had braces have their shit all fucked up. It's so unnatural it doesn't even seem human to me. Sometimes develop a slight lisp. Have to exaggerate movements to pronounce some letters. Random saliva strings they can't control. And 90% of these people had zero need to get braces in the first place, they or their parents just fell for the dentist scam. I hate it so much. I literally cannot look at some people when they speak or chew.
>>110435Nice defs more interested in picking up a pair now, does anyone know which one is best model or if differences are insignificant?
>>110455this is autism
>>110453its a common thing for new skaters.1. they arent comfortable so they are constantly shifting their feet2. they are pressing down too hard while shifting around3. they arent doing flip tricks 4. maybe they dont know to sand down their grip slightly to avoid this happening to them. >>110455i had braces when i was like 10 then a retainer to fix a underbite then we went back for a check up a year after it all over when i was like 14 or something and they told me oops now you have a overbite and need braces again whoops. at 14 i remember thinking this shit is such a fucking scam, my teeth are all fucked up if you saw them you wouldnt believe i ever had braces.
>>110455This faggot in the video as well >>110449. He 100% had braces before and now his entire mouth is ruined. Look at hos fucking disgusting the way he talks is. He can't even fucking chew a gum properly.
>>110457Shut up fucked up teeth faggot.>>110458And chances are you probably never had a real need for them in the first place.
>>110455i had braces twice , got 8 teeth removed, and a herbst appliance for my rat mouth overbite. i use to have trouble enunciating my words and still drool on myself because my mouth is so tiny and my lips are so big, so everything you said checks out for me. and I'm still a mouth breather, mandated masks were a fucking nightmare.
>>110458i had a gf with braces , when she finally had them removed - within two weeks she changed everything about her self , style, hair, etc. and became super hot and dumped me.
>>110461>i use to have trouble enunciating my words and still drool on myself/esg/ in a nutshell
>>110460no way dude im convinced the only reason i got the overbite is because of the braces. how the fuck do you tell a kid he needs braces at fucking 10 before his mouth and shit is even fully formed?? they told me "you better get them now because you might get bullied more in high school" or some shit like that. fuck that cunt orthodontist.
>>110454spitfire concial full 97 duros is probably better, I loved my set, they were perfect for my crusty local and slide well >>110456i like vm001s the most. the high tops are great, I just got my first pair of lows so I can not tell you too much about them but I really liked the highs when I had them so I rec those
>>110458>4. maybe they dont know to sand down their grip slightly to avoid this happening to them.they should buy jessup, problem solved.
>>110464I genuinely hope she dies. Your parents also paid a shit ton of money instead of buying you skateboards too.
>>110465>spitfire concial full 97 duros is probably bettergood advice but I like trying new shit/brands. im mostly spitfire/bones but my wheels right now are these trash ass rictas i got for like 13 dollars cause fuck it ill try em lol>>110466every new skater on /esg/ rocks shake junt grip on a andy anderson deck while wearing es's and volcom shirts
>>110467>sheoh it was a fat kike of course. and yeah my dad wasnt psyched about that shit lmao, but they werent gonna buy me skateboards anyway
>>110416Shit, didn't fill this out.>Goofy is more regular than Regular.
>>110234>>110240>>110285Fuck. Thanks guys. Ordered new shoes instead. Honestly glad to be done with those Vans. The only benefit was the insole which I can now reuse.
>>110416>Europe dominating the threadNYC cuck where you at lil boi?
>>110363>been skating for over a year>can ollie a good 4+ foot off a bank>can ollie over a deck>still haven't ollied up a curbIt's scary!(tbf it just doesn't come up all that often skating around London somehow because the roads are usually so rough you just avoid them altogether)
Never ever buying MOB grip again. This shit is unnaturally grippy, it's destroying my shoes, every flip trick feels awkward because it feels like my feet are glued to the board, and my thumb is shredded from just picking up the board. I guess I could see people liking this if they never flip their board and only do ollies/slappies I guess? Beware if you're trying this shit and you've only ever skated Jessup, this is something else entirely.
>>110479I'm a diehard jessup guy but all the shit you said is bullshit and it only applies to brand new grip. Like no shit you're gonna get grip thumb, welcome to your first skateboard.
>>110480The difference in roughness between regular jessup and mob is night and day. I'm not saying you won't get grip thumb from Jessup or any other grip-- MOB definitely has a significantly rougher grit to it though.
>>110479sand your shit down retard!! take one of the pieces of grip you cut off and rub it against the grip on the board.
>>110485Post an image of your current grip situation.
>>110479i do lots of flip tricks and i only use mob.i do skate cupsoles so maybe it evens out and thats why.That being said , if you're getting severe grip thumb - you've probably got soft delicate fingies and should probably shovel some dirt or hammer some shit to toughen those hands up
this is for whoever said to post switch 5050 after I mentioned landing first one in another thread. had to include some other tricks because it's so ugly... all hunched over and in slow motion and shit. it's a start at least. took ~25 attempts lol
>>110493>no heelflipDo better next time.
I like ULTRA Jessup
>>110479I felt like this when I was a noob but came around eventually. not saying you're a noob, but I remember Mob feeling almost unsafe in the beginning... like I would try to kick away my board and it would stick to my feet still. as I started skating with a bit more force I started to like Mob a lot, though I feel like it's the best after a couple days of wear. definitely a lot of people who flip their board and swear by Mob, so it's mostly a preference thing. as for your thumb, you will get a callous really quick.but really what I think is best about Mob is the longevity. Jessup is fucking dead after a month, while Mob still has some life left in it.
>>110494I got you next time my b. can it be fakie? I prefer fakie heels.
>>110499No it has to be regular. Don't be gay. Fakie heels are forbidden by the /esg/ shadow government committee.
>>110475>It's scary!yeah it is scary in the beginning, but it's the type of thing you try once or twice and it's not scary anymore. I'm sure you're capable.
Change my mind. Some people are just not made for skateboarding and should not be doing it. I know there are no rules and shit, but it's better to admit to yourself that this just isn't your thing. It's one thing to be different because you're creative, but it's another to be different because you're cringe. Look at this dumbass bitch. Looks like that one soulless NPC loser dork nerd form your middle school that wanted to bad to be cool they forced themselves into something they clearly don't even enjoy. You cannot tell me this bitch recorded this, had fun, and then decided she's proud enough of it to submit it to a red bull manual contest. This is what happens when your mom is a faggot enabler and keeps telling you you can prove the haters wrong by never giving up. Look at this.
>>110503Honestly I think Haley likes skating and is pretty good. I feel like she's one of those skaters who wants to be an anti-coolguy and go against skating norms, but her trick selection is just awful. basically she doesn't know or hasn't yet figured out how to be unique in a non-corny way.>Some people are just not made for skateboarding and should not be doing itto me Haley doesn't fall in that category. that's for people who are too afraid to ever progress, come to the skatepark and just talk, maybe attempt a handful of tricks but never really land anything. that shit is just odd to me. I guess they just think of it as a social thing. I suppose I'm way less social/talkative than a normal person, so maybe they think it's weird when people put in headphones and just try a trick over and over alone for an hour. I don't mean to be sexist or w/e (or I guess I don't really care lol), but those guys who come to the skatepark and just chat come across as super feminine. I wonder why they don't want to do something else with their time.
>>110425>how to do a trickI concur.But trick names? You got to have them.
>>110503>Some people are just not made for skateboarding and should not be doing itYesBut also Any women doing any street skating in general looks retarded. Vert/tranny is fine
>>110504>but those guys who come to the skatepark and just chat come across as super feminine. I wonder why they don't want to do something else with their timeits called being a poser
>>110458>sand down their grip slightly to avoid this happening to them.I...I didn't know about this.
>>110493really tight dude. your making wanna go skate a ledge again>>110505the best was when i met this costa rican guy fresh of the boat and he skated goofy and we tried playing skate and kept getting into arguments over whether something was frontside or backside lol. his broken english and shit made me seriously believe that fs/bs is switched in south america.
>>110502Yeah, thanks bro. I just need to find a decent curb and dedicate a session to it. It's the fear of the back truck catching the curb that fucks me up the most, but I think I could try a slow tick tack thing where you nose manny to clear it.
>>110510The next time you grip a board, keep the scraps you cut away and lightly sand it down.Or ride Black Magic grip and wreck your shoes in record time.
>>110493Bro I'm sweating just to land them switch 50s on a curb and you are grinding them on a shin-high ledge, you have ledge game.
>>110513I do that to soften and integrate the edges. It never occured to me you could do it on the whole sheet.
>>110503hmm idk anon this is very mean-spirited. hayley is a skate rat at heart, she's been skating before it was popular with girls on social media. she's not very good but it's obvs that she genuinely enjoys skating and has progressed enough to have decent bag of flat tricks and even some switch tricks. she just has bad sketchy style. >>110504I agree with this anon but I go to the park and talk cause I have nothing to prove, I'm not there to train I just do what I want. deff more of a cruiser/push guy now in my late 20s.
>>110514tbqh for most ledge tricks, once you can get them on a curb you can get them on most normal-sized ledges as well. slides are easier on high stuff imo b/c you can just pop without worrying about overshooting like you do on a curb.also curbs tend to be a lot crustier than most other ledges. >>110479mob is retardedly grippy. i'm really tempted to try putting snowskate grip on a board, it never has a break in period and you don't lose all your grip if the board gets wet. i do understand this would be incredibly cringe
>>110518>snowskate grip on a boardim intrigued to say the least
>>110503also i think dan has influenced her skating for the worst, she wasn't doing all that gay kooky manual shit before they started dating. she was very much just your average skater at the park maybe more on the normie side because of revive. but once they got on that youtube/ig influencer wave she started doing all those gay ass tricks for ig engagement. dan was some bum fuck dude living out a motel until he started making money on youtube and hayley was NEET up until recently so he probably talked her into it when they met.
>>110518Yeah I am intrigued too.
>>110521You're in love with her aren't you anon
>>110503Goddamn, you sound like a bitch. Get the fuck out of my sport, anon.
>>110524kek no i just think dan is a gross loser and she could do better. i can't believe she kisses him in the mouth with his nasty decaying meth teeth
Does anybody know why Steve Caballero's graphic is a dragon? What's the lore here?
>>110526I always wonder if his teeth hurt that shit must be painful right?
>>110504>>110517>>110521>>110525reddit posts>>110506There are some decent ones, or ones that are at least trying and aren't maximum cringe.
>>110531all he ever does is complain but rarely about his teeth so I guess not
>>110526are you the same guy posting about how max palmer is sickly looking while posting a webm of him kissing a cutie?>>110527hes asian
>>110537no i defended max palmerthis was my post >>110290
Why are Dan's teeth like that anyways? Surely it can't be drugs. Cigs?
>>110538ok lol if this >>110535 is his teeth then damn son lmao this fool mighta actually needed braces
>>110540Why are you typing like some 16 year old retard from twitter?
>>110539i unironically think he prob has some unfortunate medical disease like scurvy I don't think he actually smokes meth desu
>>110543That's retarded. Don't assume retarded things. Someone might call you a retard.
Bro we're really in a thread with actual teenagers.
>>110465The powells definitely feel softer, slide maybe slightly better than 97a f4s? It's hard to compare because my 97s are 58mm conical fulls vs 54mm regular wide.
>>110547im 27 yall should focus on skating and not how people on the internet type yo
>>110549Post house with two car garage + driveway, front and back yard, and wife with kids.
>>110551me and my wife
>>110553nigga you aint 27
>>110551me skating in front of my house (those are my kids in teh background)
this is my backyard (ignore the helmet fag thats my grampa)
>>110527Because he's half Japanese...so he has a Chinese dragon...Interestingly, Hosoi doesn't like to use the rising sun thing anymore because he learned that it was, idk, a sort of swastika to Korean and Chinese people. I don't know what it is about Japanese-American/Hawaiian skaters that has them know 0 about Japan, but there you go.
>>110555fake news, bam is confirmed a homosexual
>>110539Cigs will do that. My dad's teeth were similar before he knocked them out dropped something from a shelf onto his face. My teeth are pretty shitty, but it's mostly because I never got braces and drink buckets of tea and coffee every day. They're strong and healthy, just crooked and yellow as fuck.>>110547Report underage b& when you see them.
>>110558whos Bam? thats a picture of me my name is Pow

>>110585lol i dont think so m8
>>110556Don't steal my pics you fag
>>110416>What is your gender?>81.8% Transition>18.2%% Street
>>110567>newfaggotI've been here since time immemorial. Reporting underaged b& cleans up the board, leads to actual bans. Always has.>>110582vere are your papers?
Got this today
>>110598barely hanging on there, but nice. good to finally see some OC in the threads.
i think 90% of the reason why i never learned slappys is that everytime you fuck one up you feel like the world's biggest retard
>>110504what having no friends does to a mf
>I'm too old/fat/scared to skateHere is a 61 year old man doing an invert in a 10 ft bowl
I'm getting really comfortable skating the 6ft shallow end of the local bowl, but i still can't do anything except backside grinds and occasionally a frontside slash in the deep end. Anyone got any tips to working up to actually trying shit on big (10ft) transition?
>>110504Yeah, I agree. There's one person I know who skates and spends 90% of the session just talking the fucking ears off everyone, will maybe push around for 10 minutes, then struggle to drop in again before giving up. They stink, and I thought that was alright because they were fairly new, maybe don't have time to practice outside these sessions....then I found out they've been at it for 11 months.I really do not measure people by their raw ability because skating is just fucking harder for some people more than others, but if that's the kind of effort you put in and go around calling yourself a "skater", get real. It's a fashion accessory to you, nothing else.
>>110597So, newfaggot, just because you say someone is underage, the mod will just take your word for it and ban them for however long until they're 18, with the exact information of their current age they clearly have? Why do you retards insist on pretending you've been here for longer than a month and know how shit works?
>>110598>no heelflipGo back and film that line again right this instant.
>>110649No dumb dumb, you wait until they say they're underage, then you report it. Given there's multiple underage posters here, one of you idiots will slip up eventually when you get into a shit flinging match for the fiftieth time. The ban doesn't last until you're 18+, it's a standard length ban.That and mods can just ban anyone if they feel like it. You don't need legal proof of identity.
>>110652>you wait until they say they're underageHappened literally never. Didn't read the rest of your shitpost.
>>110598nice. im pretty decent at ledge skating but honestly im afraid of frontside nosegrinds, idk what it is
>>110662missing the nosegrind portion has led to some pretty heavy slams
>>110648I know a guy exactly like this too. It's just annoying. I get that some people might just really need the social interaction but if I'm at the skatepark I'm there to skate, I don't want to get stuck in a conversation with you and lose my flow.
who here /neverskatedtranny/? i've been skating a few years and learned some simple stuff on a mini, but have never set foot in a real bowl and dont have any plans to. shit looks dangerous as fuck and i've seen enough brutal slams/broken shit from ppl doing bowls to put me off of it forever
>>110679im the same way. my local doesn't even have a mini or quarter pipe. it just has some weird wavy transition stuff that most everyone avoids. none of the coping is level, so you can't really stall stuff without sliding. I prefer street obstacles anyway. I figure when I'm old and done popping my board I will build a mini and learn... seems to be the way it goes.
Do you feel mentally violated if a trick tip proves to be true? I feel like I have lost half the fun, which is learning on your own.
>>110682well I started skating a long time ago before YouTube. I basically had to learn kickflips on my own and from kids around me who could barely do them (wasn't until later that I started going to a skatepark and could observe better skaters).as a result I have really shitty muscle memory burned in my system. I have the flick off the the side and can't really seem to correct it. I wish I could have watched slowmo videos and had someone explain flicking more off the nose, etc.and even if you know how to execute something, you still have to put the work in. my mother could learn every trick secret and still not be able to step on a board. it's not like you download the trick to your brain Matrix-style.
>>110679>>110680I would give you guys shit for not at least trying it but I've never seriously tried to learn any ledge, manual pad or rail tricks and I've been skating for over 10 years (on and off)
>>110682the only trick tip that actually worked for me was andrew reynolds' one for frontside flips and it only works on boards that are bigger than what i ride. it did make hardflip mannys way easier though.jeremy wray style kickflips also work really well but i can't do them on a grippy board.>>110679i was skating tranny a lot this winter, and by 'skating tranny' i mean dropping in switch on everything to stop being scared of skating tranny' but then i stopped and now i'm scared again lmoa
>>110692Dropping in switch is gnarly as fuck. How big of a ramp could you do that on.
>>110687Ok, I hear you.
Mike V is a big time faggot. I'm sure i shared this before but in the early 2000s i was skating Hollywood High with some friends- we were at some smaller stair sets in the back not where the huge stair set where everyone films is.I've ran into a lot of ams/ pros in those days and they've always been cool, the ones who weren't like Greco or a few others kinda just kept to themselves- but usually someone else in their crew would be cool with us so it was fine.But i digest...So we're skating and we see him and one of my friends was like "oh shit its Mike V" and like a little bitch - in a very whiney voice he goes "Yes its me Mike V, everyone just stop what you're doing and interrupt what I'm doing because I'm Mike fucking V. NO you can;'t have my board, NO you can't have my autograph, I'm just here to skate. GOT THAT?"We kinda just gave him an "alright bro" and kept it moving- but because of that incident i couldn't fucking stand his ass
>>110671Or just wait for a bit when everyone is getting tired and needs a break. There's multiple points in a sesh where you're out of it for 20 mins at a time, fucking hell. I've literally stopped this person mid conversation to say "okay, skate time now, bye".
>>110702dude youre sooooo funny, youre a real meme lord, do another ollie for us cool guy
>okay, skate time now, bye
>chilling just browsing 4chan right now>all of a sudden for some reason remember when I was in elementary school and my grandma took me to the skatepark and I couldn't do anything but baby ollies and ride and I was so desperate to do an actual trick I held up the entire park to drop in the on the edge of the pyramid and "grind" it thinking I'm doing a 50-50 then "landing" it and being hyped like I just an actual trick and looking around to see if any of the older guys reacted or though it was coolWHY THE FUCK DID I DO THAT GET OUT OF MY HEAD AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>110695the wall right before the capsule.the taco and the other bowl in the back w/ the green paint are deeper i think but they were unskatable during the winter.i really wanted to drop on >https://www.denverpost.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/05/20090826__Snowmassp1.jpg?w=600and cure the madness entirely but i could never get enough of the ice out of the bottom.>>110713i told all the mexican kids i could darkslide to sound cool but the board stuck on the grip and i ate shit and they all laughed at me
OUT HERE IN THE FIELDSI'M FUCKING BIG SEALSI EAT OUT TURKEYS ON THANKS GIVINGCHICKENS IN A COCK FIGHTTHEIR PUSSY'S TIGHTI JUST FUCK THEM TILL IM JIZZINYEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAHA HOUSE FLYI'LL CUM IN ITS EYEI'M IN A ZOOPHILE 'S DREAMLAND
>>110652>The ban doesn't last until you're 18+, it's a standard length ban.that IS the "standard" length ban you fucking retarded newfag
>>110713>looking around to see if any of the older guys reacted or though it was coolI still do this and I'm 27
>>110713Based. I always try to give the little kids props when I see them landing tricks because I know it'll foster their love for skateboarding and an active healthy life
>>110682No way, the real challenge is getting the trick to look good once you can do it.
>>110738i love giving board taps for the most mundane shit for newbies, theyre always so happy and come up and say thanks. i dont care how bad you are at skating as long as your trying and not a bitch
Do you have a skate anthem?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tW_QQpGjTUE
>>110773You're 16 years old.
>>110782You're retarded, have no style, have no drip, have no friends, live in a fly-over state, work in a warehouse as a fork-lift driver, love Andy Anderson, go to skate parks just to talk all day, wear a helmet, love There's 'Ruining Skateboarding' part, love browsing slap, love browsing r/NewSkaters, practice kickturns in your parents driveway, have broken your arm doing said kickturns, love GiftedHater and push mongo, but at least you're not underageb& (because you're a 30-year-old boomer). Also you're gay.Think that covers everything.
>>110785Literally everything you said is wrong except me pushing mongo, and that's only when I go switch or fakie.
>>110775this came up on shuffle for me the other day while skating, and I feel like it's a pretty appropriate song for skating.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cH9EJg4o9-s&ab_channel=StuartBland
>>110786>and that's only when I go switch or fakie.basedThats the only way for tricks for me unless Im cruising
>>110786The first one is 100% correct, but I can't expect you to be aware of it.
>>110800Stay mad I guess.
>>110786learn to switch push damnit
>>110709I was watching some trick tip with this guy and he literally yelled>LIKE A BOSSat least ten times. it was outrageous.
>>110803I can. I just don't do it.
It's my birthday today
>>110816Happy 16th birthday anon. I hope you got all the gifts you wanted and I hope you have a great time. Also stay healthy so you can skate longer. God bless.
>>110817Thanks but i'm 28. Going to buy myself a new skateboard all the same
>>110818What are you getting?
>>110791Nice, gave it a listen and honestly feels more like running down the beach with a surfboard to catch some waves, but what's the difference right? Still cool
One of my tails are becoming uneven. Like it’s starting to become more straightened out than the other. Had this board for about a year though I don’t skate much, is it time to replace it?
>>110775https://open.spotify.com/playlist/53DPsyhIYQWSHVuW55rlsS?si=4467619e3a8d4eb3I have a whole playlist. But I often start off with "The Pot" by Tool.
>3 of my friends are out with broken ankles>one sprained his shoulder in mid May, decided against skating again until he's 100% able to do a chest press without pain againThankfully I actually like solo skating the majority of the time, but I miss these fools.
the eastern US heat wave is over and its time to genuinely enjoy skating outdoors again
Cheapest way to build a mini ramp?. I was thinking of getting a premade but I have no idea where to begin with anything
>>110820I just got this krooked natas guest model. Pretty nice shape. But I'm bummed because the guy at the skate shop switched my trucks over for me and he put them on backwards and then I went to switch them around and he'd misthreaded 3/4 bolts on the front truck. I stripped two of them trying to get them off but luckily I had a Dremel tool to cut them off. Now I gotta go buy some new bolts from the hardware store down the road before they close. Kinda pissed off right now bros
