What are you all working on? What was the last revelation you had (doesn't matter if it's "dumb" or seems obvious now)?
>>
>what are you working on

-getting heel flips more elevated/less rocketed
-learning nose slides without cheating.
-nose manuals/learning to hold my balance on mannys better
-Learning those weird foot plants where u grab the board behind you

>revelations that I have had

-the more u bend down before the pop, the more time you have for the trick itself.
-for heelflips: you need to kinda bend ur ankle when going for the flick of the trick.
-wallrides are insanely easy once u learn the pitch of the wall and treat it like a qp
>>
>>115850
>What are you all working on?
-Kickflips. Landed my first few last week, haven't had time to really go for them again since, though I clinched one out in the last session by chance.
-No comply 180s on/up things.
-Sweepers, though I need to drop back in properly with them where you just fucking caveman into the ramp rather than slamming the tail down and dropping in regular.

>What was the last revelation you had
-With kickflips, the issue I have is getting my back foot on, but what's clicking is that I need to curl up into a ball when I jump, rather than jumping more upright like a Zulu or something. Guess that's the case with most flip tricks but I can actually feel it now.
-No complies actually take a lot less energy then I tend to think. Usually I'll start by totally over popping it until it's out of control and flying away from me, when in reality it's a VERY small movement. Getting them up onto things like curbs and QPs does require a decent pop though, so I'm trying to figure out how to pop them high and slap the tail down onto the edge without cheating it and grabbing the nose (though that feels pretty cool sometimes).
-With sweepers, idk, it's fun to smack the tail off the coping on the way up, but again like with kickflips, it's better to have you body balled up so you can immediately turn around and do a nosegrab drop in.

I think in general I'm learning how being hunched over is usually the position you want to be in when you're mid-trick. I have a tendency to straighten my back, but for a lot of tricks this means that I can't see both of my feet too well and makes me bail out of tricks.

I got a feeble to fakie on a tiny quarterpipe last night by thinking about fakie manualing out of it. Seems like nothing but I've been skating for a long time and hadn't been able to do that trick on anything until now so i'm excited to try it on some bigger things. Thanks to the anon who said the fakie manual thing.

I was at my local the other day and I asked my guy behind the counter if he could get a specific type of wheel in for me. He pulled up the DLX catalog for retailers. For the shop to buy spitfire f4 wheels straight from DLX it costs them $25. I saw the price on the site. They then sell them for like $50 a set at my local. Is that 100% mark up in price justified?

>Is that 100% mark up in price justified
yeah, f4s are the best and shop guys gotta eat too. wheels aren't something you should have to replace that often either. i don't think I ever had a flat spot with f4 and a set of conical fulls should last a good while.
>>
>>115938
>They then sell them for like $50 a set at my local
sounds like you need to just find a better local because F4s at my shop are like $38-$40 at the max. F4s are great but i'd never pay $50 for a set when you can get TWO sets of Classics for like $5 more.

Recently have not been learning anything new, but trying to get my small bag of flip tricks more consistent/higher/rolling faster. When I remember and actively commit to a few rules, I almost immediately without fail become more consistent-- the spirit is willing but the mind/body are weak.

>jump high enough with both feet to give the board enough time to finish rotating/flipping
>land on the board no matter what with both feet (even if primo or upside down)
>watch the board with your eyes as it flips under you
>spread your feet apart from each other
>leaning away means i don't want to land it-- even if i land it, if i'm leaning really far toeside/heelside, i dont count it

Yes these are all obvious as fuck, but if i do not actively put my mind to it, my body will naturally try to do the opposite in an act of self preservation/fear: jumping as low as possible, jumping too far forward, keeping legs close together etc etc

>>116013
100% try it, if flatground/street skating is not for you then you can just be a dude who skates transition and there is no shame in that. That's all I do. My wheels basically never leave the concrete yet I still feel like I can hold my own at the skatepark and get a few board taps here and there by doing some stylish grinds.

Start on mini ramps to get the basics down.

Also never call it 'vert' skating unless you're actually skating a ramp that is vertical. It's called 'transition' or tranny.

>>116027

I mean, yeah. I wanna try blading too, but haven’t wanted it bad enough to buy em (I mean come on, they’re like $250-300)
I guess it’s just feels harder to commit. At 26, you can’t take falls as easily, and most of the time when I fall, I go 90° and straight to the concrete.
>>116032
>call it transition
Noted! Well maybe there’s hope still yet. :) Like I said to the anons above, I just can’t seem to get tricks. Idk if I’m just not committed or what. My hopes are that transition will somehow be easier. Idk.
If skateboarding isn’t for me, I’m gonna buy rollerblades. Way I see it is there’s some things were just not good at man, but I still wanna cover all bases.

when i was fucked up i just got realy good at doing manuals
>>116041
>can't commit
get a yoga mat for cheap and practice flatground tricks on it. then practice doing them rolling and gap into the mat. you could also just find a big grass gap or a gazebo spot and practice sending them into the grass.
unironically that's how i learned how to skate big gaps.
if this makes you feel like a pussy just remember those woodward niggers have a foam pit.

for tranny you really need to be able to commit, i don't have much advice for how to learn stuff on there because i'm bad at skating it
>>
>>116045
I feel like learning basic tricks in tranny is easy because you can just do them on a 3ft ramp and then it's pretty much the same thing on a 6ft ramp, which is pretty much the same thing on a 10ft ramp. It's just hard as fuck to get the balls to commit to shit once it gets to 6ft

Tips for landing into manuals?

I always end up evening out the nose like an Ollie. How do I stop myself from bringing the front of the board down once I pop?
>>
>>116053
>I always end up evening out the nose like an Ollie
revert back to ollie monkey and get some flat rocket ollies while warming up, thats the motion when going up a manny pad, just with slightly bigger pop.
For nose mannies I have no clue, gotta have a boned ollie already to make that transition on the front wheels smooth and stable with an extended front foot...
>>
>>116053
i learned 5-0s and nosegrinds first. do stalls on a curb or the edge of the manny pad and get used to landing in them lightfooted w/o touching the tail/nose. it's more about feel than anything

Probably highly unlikely l, but it’s fun to think about. Haha

Id really do be like that...feels like the less I focus on the trick the better of a chance I have of doing them, if I approach them with the mentality that I dont need to work for them cause I understand them it helps me land consistently.

I was skating bowls and dropping in on 6ft stuff before I could shuv. Just do it, it's super fucking fun and not as "tricky" as flatland. There's no real secret to just cruising around bowls once you know how to pump. It's just a matter of doing the faster and higher. I mean, the vert legends all stink at street skating, yet they regularly fly through the air doing fucking backflips and shit. Do it.
>>
>>116084
Hell yeah.

>>116112
Jump higher and hang your lead arm/shoulder more over the nose while looking straight down between your feet. It's a bitch of a stage to get stuck in, but the reason you kick the board forward and away when you get the full flip is probably because you're focusing all of your attention on where you're trying to kick, which is probably making you lean your upper body back too much because you're trying to get a good view of it. And then the opposite problem with it not fully spinning when you don't kick it away is simply because you're not jumping high enough and clearing your legs out of the way so that it can get the full rotation. You can just try to flip it faster, but imo that's a lot more trial and error and fucking around with your already good footing.

I'm going to work on them on Friday too so I'll see if I can beat you to a really clean one!

maybe you just come off as a weird cunt and that's why no one wants to meet up with you?

i've met up with people from 4chan before on different boards and it was never that uncomfortable but it always felt like they had something to prove.

bro i just mention that i know what park said video is at because its my local and if X person wants to hang out and skate irl.

>would you know you're not meeting up with one of the negative argumentative freaks in here that just talks shit to anyone?
because those people are friendless losers in the first place who assume everyone else is like them and thus wouldn't want to meet up in the first place. I've met dudes from /tv/ /vg/ /v/ /o/ and /p/ and it's never been weird or awkward, usually a good time and still keep in contact with a handful of those people and hit them up when I want to engage in Y hobby with them if they're free again.

That's why. I did very briefly meet someone from these threads in London at Hop King almost a year ago but was on my way out the door (think it may have been right after I fractured my elbow) and I don't think I've ever seen him again. Seemed like an actually normal guy. I honestly can't really remember what he looked like beyond having a beard and glasses....which is what half of my skate friends look like.
>>
>>116277
People on /esg/ don't skate together, because it's full of 24/7 angry schizo slapfaggots that can't handle the banter and will create random personas to get angry at in their heads. It's probably a Cali thing. For the remaining 10 posters I can only assume they live in different parts of the world.
>>
>>116278
I honestly think that almost everyone who will spend hours fighting in these threads do not skate, or barely skate. It's so rare to me that someone who skates all the time will be arsed to start fights on the internet over such inane shit. But idk, yeah, might be a Cali thing. There's always been this weird, territorial, appearances first thing with those guys. Skaters I've met from around Europe literally do not care what you look like or even what tricks you do so long as you're actually skating.

what are you talking about dude? im answering your question about why you dont see that done. anybody will tell you fs half cab is a easy beginner trick easy as if not easier than a front 180. thats why nobody would throw it in a line even into a back 5-0 its still not impressive or anything. if you think its cool go out and get it done nobodys stopping you.

>kinda feels like a cheaters way of doing a back tail
Thats because you ARE doing a fakie back tail. When it comes to (most) fakie ledge variations, you are simply doing the normal version of a trick but going backwards. A fakie front tail would be rolling up with the ledge behind you and popping into (fakie ollie) a normal frontside tailside. Matt Bennett here is doing a fakie (ollie into) frontside nose slide. It sounds like you are doing a fakie (ollie into) backside tail slide.
the same reason why a fakie (ollie into) switch 5-0 is a fakie nose grind, you are simply doing a backwards riding nose grind. This goes back to early skating before switch was a thing, that’s why an older skater like Gonz is getting his tricks name right and others would get confused as to why it’s a back 5-0 despite rolling up frontside. If he locked into the curb on the same foot he popped the tail with, he’d be doing a fakie back tail. Technically, a fs half cab front tail would be rolling up with the ledge behind you and spinning 270 into a normal front tail slide

all that said, I guess it doesn't really matter, because a fakie back tail turns into a fakie front crooked grind if you decide to lock in with your trucks instead of your tail. just makes it easier to talk about tricks, when someone says they did a fakie back tail or fakie front nose, i know what they're talking about, unless they're just confusing themselves because they don't understand the reasoning behind the name.

>KICKFLIP TAILSLIDE TO FAKER
>This one sounds complicated, but it’s actually easy, which makes it the perfect move to cloak your limited abilities in disguise of, “you almost had it”s. You don’t even need to be able to land kickflips or backtails to do this one–just fling the board a bit and turn your shoulders a tad while putting one foot on the ledge and boom, you’ve just leveled up.
>Once you’ve done this a couple of times it might be good to combine it with some of the tactics mentioned earlier as well. So fling a fake kickflip tailslide, and when it doesn’t work out, skate back to your stretch spot while holding your lower back and reaching the other arm up to the sky in a dramatic motion.

Skating is fucking weird. Every now and then I get down on myselr for not having some fundamental trick on lock, but then I wind up being the only person in a room with a decent ollie or who can hold a manual for more than a second while they're able to do smiths and whatnot.

70% of the guys i skate with are 30+ (im in my late 20s), one is late 30s one is mid 40s and they both rip hard. maybe its different if your just learning in your 30s or are trying to get back into it but even at my age I dont feel too bad.
>>
>>116472
I know people in their 60s who can still skate big bowls.
>>
>>116005
Is the helmet for his protection, or ours.....
>>
>>116488
yeah im just learning and i wasn't doing anything complicated to cause it (literally just pushing around the street) so i'm thinking it could be the sambas im wearing.
im not gonna quit yet. skating is too fun but all these fucking injuries have set me back over a month in total time since i started late june.
>>
>>116488
it's just kind of frustrating to have to adjust to being somewhat mortal when pretty much every instinct you learn skating as a kid is to ignore your body and not be a pussy. skating isn't over by any means but it's just weird to reach a point where it's like 'oh wait pain actually does matter now'
>>
>>116491
when i started wearing fat shoes again with a decent insole, my tendonitis got way better
maybe accels look goofy to people now but holy shit i feel so much less pain wearing them
>>
>>116484
Thanks bro. I had them nice and clean for a while but lost them again. Think I might need to just focus on straight fakie ollies when my ankle is good, get them nice and high. Right now I keep doing those shitty cabs where you basically just kickturn so hard that the wheels come off the ground.

>>116486
I think people will naturally gravitate towards tricks/types of skating, but I think that maybe I've been too obsessed with ollies. Though, idk, I have so much fun ollie-ing off funboxes and kickers thst I can easily spend a whole sesh just trying to go high.
>>
>>116492
Am I the only boomer skater whose had the opposite experience; getting too old to give a shit and know that I have to die of something. I was always a pussy bitch as a teenager and couldn't commit to tricks at all.
>>
I think it's retarded that people who are older and have fucked up bodies don't just skate mini ramps. It's the simplest, low effort fun you can have skating outside of curbs.
>>
>>116497
i don't know how to fall on tranny. stairs and rails scare me way less that dropping in.
>>
>>116499
Literally just step off the board. I mean like 3ft mini ramps.

You guys remember that muhfuggin trailer for a Japanese skate video that was supposed to come out this month I think or something? It was really high production, like an actual movie. What happened to that?
>>
>>116491
if you havent invested in good insoles your a moron
>these fucking injuries have set me back over a month in total time since i started late june.
dawg what are you doing like what tricks are you trying? how sedentary was your life before you started skating??

>>116492
just drink more beer

>>116495
nah ive definitely lost a lot of fear the older ive gotten. i definitely feel the pain more but Im not as afraid of it if that makes sense.

The dime glory game of skate was fucking shit lmao. Just as I suspected I don't think either of them can consistently land a tre flip. It was almost cruel to make them do that.

Dime glory challenge just seemed lame this year. All the obstacles were like anti-climatic. It seemed like everyone was basically able to do them easily. And it also seemed like everyone there was a fucken jock too. Skateboarding has gotten so jocky in the last decade

Anyone know what to do about weird big toe pain?? i have nooooo clue what its from.. ive been not skating and its still not going away... i went for a walk yesterday and now its worse

Agreed. Dime Glory felt so fake & lame, it makes ultra corporate stuff like Olympic skateboarding look real in comparison.

i hope people finally start realizing dime (and all of canada) is wack

does looking like a tranny, a wigger from 2002, or a clown improve your skateboarding if you're female?

i need to find out what they put in the fuckin margaritas there other than that, I had a comfy barrier spot for the bump-to-bar challenge which was awesome and I left right after when the GOS started and missed everything else up until the end of the volcano challenge kek but yeah they challenges are getting stale and are too similar to the previous ones.
>>
>>116690
What was special about the margaritas?

I fucking LOVE margaritas but they definitely get me too fucked up to skate
>>
>>116691
im not a big drinker but i felt high as fuck after drinking it, it's definitely wasn't the drunk feeling i have felt before maybe that's just tequila drunk though? I'm not sure
>>
>>116693
Peronally i think the 'tequila makes you crazy' thing is just because if you're drinking margaritas or tequila shots with lime and salt it's really easy to throw back a bunch in a short amount of time so you just get drunker fast. I don't think there is actually any difference in how the alcohol effects you. That's wild if you legitimately felt high. Maybe someone spiked your drink
>>

Come on bro one of you motherfuckers must remember. What was that Japanese skate video that was supposed to come out this month I think? We had a crazy trailer for it some months ago with amazing production quality. Looked like a real fucking movie almost.

At least you got a bike. Riding motorcycles is really fun too
>>
>>116693
margaritas are like half tequila (ussually 2 shots) a limes worth of juice a shot of orange liquore a quarter simple syrup (sugar water). if your not used to a sugary ass mixed drink that gets you faded fast asf your gonna feel that way. I fucking love margs i got a shaker and juicer/strainer and all the ingredients to make em over this summer and would be blasted in like 2 hours after 3 of em. Id rather pay 8 dollars for one and pace myself after that lol

>>116694
personally whiskey makes me angry and piss the bed where I could drink a bottle of vodka and just be a normal drunk. i definitely believe that tequila makes people crazy.
>>
>>116715
Stop feeling sorry for yourself you goon. Start your skate session with the shit your comfortable with then spend a half an hour practicing the new thing. 26 is too old to care what kids think about you.

Hell yeah. I started making them this summer too. What is your favorite rum and orange liqueur to use? I like making Palomas too which is grapefruit juice, soda and tequila
>>
>>116717
Yeah, that’s true. You’re right; I am thankful and blessed to have what I do. I guess I just wish I woulda started skating at a younger age.
>>116727
If I tried transition, would tricks be easier in a bowl?
>>
>>116724
>I fucking love margs
im a big fan now after this weekend I can see myself getting obliterated with more than one. I love when a little goes a long way. might have to look into getting a shaker of my own too, what brands of tequila do you like?
>>
>>116728
mmm that looks refreshingly delish
>>
>>116729
>If I tried transition, would tricks be easier in a bowl?
Maybe. You're never gonna know unless you try. You're going to have to work regardless, nothing cool in skating comes easy

>>116724
Whiskey makes me sleepy, tequila gives a nice fun buzz but the best is rum, the spirit of choice for chads.
>>
>>116731
I would bet a margarita you make at home with real ingredients would be a lot better than whatever you were getting at the dime event. Can't imagine they're using anything other than cheap tequila and a sour mix.
>>
>>116739
Fair enough. Thanks man. God bless you.
>>
>be you
>go to skate park
>some kid is absolutely shredding on pic related
How do you react? What’s going through your head?
>>
>>116729
>If I tried transition, would tricks be easier in a bowl?
Totally. Learning how to pump alone is the key. Skating bowl is just taking that and applying it to corners, doing wider archs, etc.

>>116749
Not a kid, but I did see a 20 something guy with one kick ass in my local bowl. Said he had it with him because it was all that would fit in his bag. Gave him a go on my regular board and he was even better.
>>
>>116698
>heres a word i heard someone cooler than me say and i dont know what it means maybe ill be cool too
>>
>>116749
i kind of want to get an old g&s or zflex and throw some clay wheels on it just to see how fucked it feels
>>
>>116753
Ywnbaw
>>
>>116754
Laughed at this.
Probably would feel pretty bad. There’s a part of me that thinks skating one would be awesome but probably just a fun gimmick vs a normal board.
>>
The first skateboard i ever had was one that I had made myself out of a plank of wood and my dad had some old super narrow trucks that we put on it. Looked just like pic related except I splurged a bit and bought some nice urethane cruiser wheels for it. I was like 12 and i'd just watched lords of dogtown. Pretty much skated that for like a year before I ended up getting a real board

Hot. Admittedly, I kinda want one. Am I missing out?
>>
>>116766
>Am I missing out?
The only thing they are fun for is carving on mellow banks and pretending you are surfing. You're not missing out on much, they're just a novelty. If I still had a board like that I would just bring it out at the end of a session at a park and cruise around the park barefoot to cool down.
>>
>>116768
Ah, I gotcha. Looking at prices, might as well just stick with a standard board anyway. Though I do have a motorcycle so it’d be kinda cool to just throw one in my bag and go.
Isn’t barefoot kinda dangerous?
>>
>>116770
Yeah I suppose it's dangerous, probably way easier to roll your ankles when you're skating barefoot. It's still fun though when you're not taking your session too seriously.
