I think trucks and decks are basically as good as they'll get at this point. I like that at the moment it's easy to find a variety of different shaped and sized decks.
Wheels could possibly get better, like someone could always just invent the perfect wheel that slides when you want, grips when you want and never flatspots.
And shoes could obviously get better. Like a shoe that always has good grip and the sole never wears away.

Just checked out my local for the first time in years. It's one of those prefab metal deals but I see they've added some nice stuff. The mini ramp though goddamn. It's a way too steep and there's not enough deck in the middle. It's slick as ice and it looks like you could be eviscerated if you slid along the gouges in the surface. Ah well I think I need to practice riding switch to tackle this bitch.
>>
>>116799
>prefab metal

These parks are always fucked up for some reason. I have nothing against prefab but they’ll usually just slap them down and not pay attention to how cracked/messed up the ground is.

Not to mention that shit turns into a skillet in super hot sun.
>>
>>116800
Honestly I wouldn't mind hiring the company to build a ramp to my specs for my yard. It would outlast me.
>>
There used to be the best fucking metal mini ramp in the world at Waterloo skatepark in Sydney, Australia. Wonder if anyone in this thread will remember it, don't think there are many Australians in here. It was like 4ft, everything about it was perfect. I learnt so many tricks on that thing. I don't actually know if it's still there, I think that removed it and built a concrete one. I haven't been back there in like a decade.

why? they should be fine if the outsole is flat
>>
>>116868
Generally use softer rubbers so they wear out way quicker
>>
>>116870
Which actually leads me to my hottest take in skating, i had 1 pair of vans and they lasted like a week the rubber wore out like instantly I know it’s “the” skate shoe but fuck that felt like such a rip off I’ve not had that problem with a single other brand of shoe to that extent and I refuse to buy another pair I felt swindled
>>
>>116871
The only people I see wearing vans these days are boomers who skate once a week or people who are actually on the team or getting flow. I think the cat is definitely out of the bag that they are shit tier shoes.
>>
>>116862
that tread pattern looks kinda big and crazy, but if it feels flat then it's fine. you can skate pretty much anything flat on the bottom
>>
>>116871
only vans worth buying are half cabs and slip ons
>>
>>116871
>i had 1 pair of vans and they lasted like a week the rubber wore out like instantly
i hate vans as much as the next guy (soletech4lyfe) but this sounds ridiculous. how new are you to skating, did you just grip a new board when you got those shoes?
>>
>>116871
they used to be $35 a pair at the outlet store thats why they were good and popular it had nothing to do with the quality at $70 a pair now it makes absolutely no sense
>>
>>116877
how old are you? when i was skating a lot in my teens around the late 2000s vans old skools were insanely popular, literally everyone was wearing them
>>
>>116878
not him but Vans had a window in time where they were considered uncool poser shoes, and to be fair, Vans was fucking up hard. Nobody was really buying them, so you could find them for pretty cheap. I'd like to imagine Lil B re-popularized them with his Vans song and thats when prices shot back up again, and they never really fell out of popularity after that again. It was always easy to find Vans for cheap while something like Emericas or Es were the same standard priced shoes they're still doing today
>>
>>116901
>a window in time where they were considered uncool poser shoes
what time period was this? not doubting you just wondering if i wasn't aware because i was a) not in the usa or b) not involved with skating at the time (i kinda stopped for almost 6 years)
>>
it kinda sucks how hard most guys pile out when they get on anti hero. i love the brand but it's almost like they just don't give a fuck if their guys put out 0 content.
>>
wow they really embarrassed the fuck outta breanna geering what the fuck was the point of that her and alexis are no where near comparable skaters other than theyre actual street skater girls. the skill gap is huge.
>>
i got my first skateboard in like 2001 and specifically asked for a pair of vans along with it (i was 6 ok) so I dont really understand what the boomers are talking about when they shit like "vans were unpopular"

>>116909
i was just thinking the other day that i have not seen any anti hero content in forever, i have no idea who rides for them, i dont know what theyre up to, they just put a girl i never heard of on the team? guess theyre just selling eagle decks and living off their 90s people. actually as im typing this i just remembered this anti hero x supreme collab video came out recently so i guess theyre doing alright.
>>
forgot the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1VODrov_qU
>>
>>116903
maybe not "poser shoes" but they were definitely putting out shoes that were not very high quality and looked like pieces of dogshit. probably like pre baker 3, the weird transitional phase from 98-05. It wasn't until the TNT 2s came out and Rowley was doing well with his newer models that Vans kind of came back into the swing of things, and even at that point in time, despite the look of their shoes being a hit, the quality was insanely garbage, and actual skate brands kind of had a stranglehold on the market (considering they were actually putting out full length videos in an era where it still mattered). the fact Vans constantly has to introduce a "pro" like or a "skate" line for their models and are always talking about upgrading the quality of their shoes because people have had bad experiences is something that has been going on for years.
>>

Destination unknown was fucking sick too. Just as good as the old anti hero vids imo. Body corporate was cool too but more in a tent city kinda way, less skating.

They used to be fairly standard until dedicated skate shoes were a thing, but you'll want older, thinner soled basketball shoes, and you'll probably want to avoid doing flip tricks if you want them to stay in one piece for more than a month.

If there is anyone in here they can do legit back Smith grinds in tranny can you confirm it is easier to properly lock it in once you do it on pool coping?

>>
>>117110
Try to skate as much as I can; min 3 sess per week and max 7 I guess...sometimes go for 2 mini sessions a day. I wanna get into boardslides and 5050 but the best flat rail is in the local in the center of my city and Im still a skate park virgin. Mostly just downhill and do flatground. Kinda wanna get a proper kickflip and ollie to mannie before I go do rails and ledges.
>>
>>117105
It's not useless though. It's a real tip. Well as long as you're waaaay off. Most of the time you understand how to do the trick, you're just pussying out of landing it.
>>
>>117107
>fs half cab

You get a pass for only having skated for 5 monts lil bro but don't let me catch you lacking like that gain or that ass is getting beat.
>>
>>117115
just wax up some curbs and learn slappy noseslides and boardslides.. wax the top of the curb so ur wheels can slide boardslides on them
>>

gonz literally says fs half cab tho.. dont be a skate term autist its not cool bro

Gonz is a faggot poser that can eat my ass.

>>117119
You guys don't really do boardslides on curbs though right? Or maybe I just haven't see a curb that tall.
>>
>>117121
doesnt need to be tall. you can do a boardslide on a curb 3inches or so as long as you can get your back wheels off the ground

I remember when I was a little kid I wasted my money on a lemon scented world industries piece of wax shaped like the flame character. Then I realized regular cheapass candles are almost as good. There are some candles that are actually better for skating, but I can't remember what they were supposed to be made of exactly. I'm not some candle nerd, can't remember if it was paraffin or beeswax or whatever the fuck.

Nah. It's like saying "cheer up" to someone who's sad, rather than saying something like "you should check out this really nice like I like to hang out at, it's really nice and I love the sunsets there". Obviously there's some level of "just committing" to landing a trick, but 90% of that is building up the confidence by tweaking what you're doing and practicing something related so that you feel comfortable putting your foot down. Even if you have the broadstrokes and the board is flipping correctly or whatever, sometimes "pussying out" is you throwing your body into some awkward angle where trying to land it will be super sketchy, take more effort and might send you on your ass. It equally might not either, but if someone can't get over the fear, then I find it's much better to go and do something related that you're already comfortable with that will build their confidence. Like if someone is struggling to "just committing" to dropping in on something, it's much better to pump up the thing or bomb around on a similar ramp they're more comfortable with first so that that window of uncertainty is smaller and less scary.

Plus it's usually coming from bad skate tutorials/guys at the park that don't know how to articulate what they're actually doing. You can see it in tutorials all the time; some pro skater will start off describing that trick they do, get frustrated mid way through because they don't think about it intellectually, and say something like "eh, you just whack your tail in, like, bam, like, swuch, and you just commit. Just do it a couple of times, experiment, and you'll get it. Everybody is different so, idk, just figure it out and commit". Just a pointless thing to say.
>>
>>117133
Walled
>>
>>117138
Lmao skate tutorials from pro guys are so bad. You're much better off asking regular dudes at the park for advice. Pro skaters are just so far beyond our level that they don't even remember what it was like trying to land that first kickflip or feeble grind or whatever.

If I'm having trouble committing the best thing for me to do is to go and try the trick on a smaller similar obstacle first and then before I can even think about how different the actual obstacle is I just try it with the feeling of making it on the smaller obstacle fresh in my brain.
>>
>>117144
I tell this to kids trying to learn to drop in on bigger ramps all the time. I say 'go land it on that 3ft ramp, and then as soon as you land it just get back up here, smack your tail down and drop in without even thinking about how big it is.' feels good watching how lit up the kids get when they land it.
>>
>>117144
>You're much better off asking regular dudes at the park for advice
also asking beginners that JUST learned what ever trick you're trying, they will be able to go into depth on par with academic research since the battle is still fresh in their minds
>>
>>117074
Some I have, some maybe once a session, others once in a good session.. a few I haven't done in years. I've stopped and started skating a lot and just reaching a level where I'm as good as I ever was.
The ones I've never landed are:
>Fs flip
>Fs smith on ledge

It's as much to get my ass out there and keep progressing.

Anyone have tips for tail slides? Fs I'm on my ass the moment I lock in and bs I'm on my ass the moment I try lock in and miss. All round painful trick to learn.

I have no issue with girl skaters, stoked to see them out irl but.. like all female sports this seems so rediculous to be propped up on the same level as men's. I think letting corporate brands into skating now means we have to put up with them propping up girls with less ability than a 14 yr old at my local to suit their agenda. And no one can say shit because that's where all the money comes from.

Lol.

Skate brands NEED less elite skaters in their ranks. Every team should have a Lance Mountain tier of skaters who have a more relatable skill level who are just about the fun of it. Otherwise, what, you just want Nyjahs forever and ever?

>Every team should have a Lance Mountain tier of skaters who have a more relatable skill level who are just about the fun of it.
lance mountain is your example for this? why?

>>117159
I was thinking that. It was such a contrast in style.
>>117160
I've only really noticed their powerful grip these last couple years. 2010 era didn't seem so corporate.
I think that's what the local scene/shops/brands are for. Or fancy lad crew for example. Which is more fun to me than watching Lizzy.
>>
only focusing on skill is jock shit, thinking that girl skaters are taking positions/eyes away from more skilled guys is pure jock shit. pay attention to the shit that interests you or be a hater I guess. obviously theres a huge group of people that are enjoying the rise of girls in skateboarding as it grows larger than it ever was and if you have a problem with it then idk maybe pray to nyjah and then kys. theres a spot for everyone in skating except for fucking pussies who wont commit.

I said that because it's something Lance himself says, and because by the time the videos were coming out he was "aging out" and being left behind skill wise by the rest of the Bones Brigade. He was cursed to be on the same team as Hawk and Mullen, but rather than try and push himself as being the guy with the biggest airs or the most amazing tricks, he filmed himself goofing around and having fun with his board, which actually might have gotten more people to try skating that the rest of the team's insane clips did. Being pro isn't just about being the literal greatest at your field. If anything, the more relatable you are, the better.

I thought the last minute or so was getting interesting, but yeah, what's going on with her? Is that megramp injury catching up on her or something? She was the weakest part by far of the Vert Alert demo recently too, bailing out of handplants. I don't think she actually made more than 2 walls there. She seems to be playing everything SUPER safe unless she's skating with Sakura, and I don't know if that's physical injury or just the psychological damage that fall did.

Also, just to be clear, I'm absolutely not talking any shit about Lance and don't think he's one of the GOATs. Just that there was a stretch of time where he wasn't the best on his team and was liked more for other reasons.

if you ride a mid to big board you can do them reynolds/chris cole style where you put your back foot in the pocket and do it kind of like a pressure flip that you also kickflip... if that makes any sense.
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQH4r035NIw
when i ride my snowskate (8.75) doing them that way makes them whip around really tightly and makes doing things like fs flip fakie manny/switch manny and hardflip manuals feel incredibly consistent.
if you ride a smaller board (8 to sub-8) that kind of backfoot position isn't very stable so just keep your full foot more on the tail and muscle them around. you can preload your shoulders too but i find as you get comfortable flipping frontside you will have a tendency to over rotate when you do that, but it is useful for kickflip fs 360s.

i hope that makes some degree of sense

Nearby Lancaster has 2 good bowls. There's another skatepark in the east side of Palmdale that's mainly transition but not really a bowl in that one. I'll probably be at the Lancaster park this weekend though. But if anyone wants to plan something out and it's in the morning, I'm down. If you guys wanna drive here I would say east Palmdale because it's more universal and we wouldn't be split between bowl and street

Waiting until winter to come out is probably a good idea. In the beginning, it’s usually pretty rough. You’re still figuring things out and it’s easier to play around with winter clothing. Regardless, good luck with your transition, anon.

anyone ever clean their bearings?

i tried to do it but i don't know if it did anything.

>popped off cap
>sprayed out bearing with carb cleaner
>sprayed some chain lube in there
>put cap back on
>>
>>117319
Anon.. I…
Keep in mind, my bearings are all steal. I take dish soap, get some water in there, spin it around a bunch of times, rinse it off super good, then take a blow dryer and spin em while drying. Then 2-3 drops of oil.
For normal bearings; soak them in either windex or whatever solvent you use for 35-40 minutes. Shake em around every so often. Then wash em off, blast em with a blow dryer, then 2-3 drops of oil.
Also get some bearing oil. Personally I use Oust oil. It’s thinner than Bones Speed Cream, and basically the same price. Also, you want thinner oil.
>>
i use mineral oil(baby oil) for my bearings and it works just fine. stop being gouged by the skateshop jew.
>>
>>117320
>Also get some bearing oil
what's so good about bearing oil? oil is oil
>>
>>117323
Idk how thick chain oil is, but I suppose as long as it’s not too thick it’d be fine.
>>
>>117319
I used to do it when I was younger & it does work, definitely prolongs the life of your bearings. I just cbf doing it now

>>117323
>>117324
THick man is right. The thickness of the oil can fuck up your bearings if too thick (like WD40) & make them collect more dirt
>>
>>117323
You can use machine oil too.

Also I consoomed and bought one of those Bones cleaning bottle things and it's actually pretty damn handy. Some cleaning alcohol, caps off the bearings, put them open side up on the shaft, a good shake, then leave them to dry on a paper towel and they're squeaky clean.
>>
>>117319
>get medical grade alcohol or the shit women use to remove nail polish
>put it in a bucket, put the bearings in the liquid with the cap off
>leave it for 30-90 minutes
>towel and air dry for 5-10 minutes
>get sewing machine oil or any oil that is made for delicate, small, fine machinery (not WD40!!!)
>put 1-2 drops in each bearing
>you just fixed your shitty chinese bones reds into swiss cheese premium bones that spin long and fast

Honestly I dont get the whole premium bearings BS... since Ive started doing this I can just clean them out every 3-4 months and they work like new again. Fuck I even skate them with the shield off thru dirt and rain sometimes and it still works if you just maintain them right.
>>
>>117319
I tried once it's more work than I want to do considering a new set is only 10-20 bucks

best bearing oil is silicone spray lube. but keep that on the lowdown. dont want bearing companies to go out of business.
>>
>>117305
ummm... cringe... sweaty i think you meant to say 'those aren't 97's'

true, silicone spray is used in place of chain oil on bikes too. i just used the chain oil because it was the only oil I had in a spray bottle thing

I've been wondering this for years, but what the fuck is an "alley oop"? I keep hearing vert skaters use that term to describe some sort of motion in a trick, but have no clue what they're seeing that I'm not.
>>
>>117397
it's like an over-rotated air.

like if you come at a ramp diagonally frontside, but then at the top you instead do a backside 270 degree turn to come back down the ramp in regular stance... that's an alley oop. it can be done backside or frontside and there are all kinds of tricks it can be applied to... alley oop inverts, alley oop airs, alley oop cess slides, alley oop grinds etc

>>
>>117381
i land on it primo or between primo and double. i can commit i can properly land. but i fall all the time. because i land in an awkward position. i dont understand how my backfoot is supposed to catch it. it does only when i bail and step off with my front foot.
>>
>>117469
>creature is like one of the few major board brands that still has a chinese woodshop. their boards are trash. do not recommend.

Yeah that's what I thought too then I bought a creature deck and it was better than any other shilled deck for whatever reason. I don't know if the yurop ones we had were just a godlike batch, but mine was amazing. Plus none of you guys itt are good enough to need the best woodshop deck possible. The graphic is the most important part.
>>
>>117472
I'm in a similar stage to you. You have to figure out where to look the get your back foot on first. For me, if I look sort towards the centre of the deck but slightly toeside, it's much easier to bring my back foot straight up and straight back down where the tail will be. Try to aim for the tail to begin with. You'll probably do a rocketed flip and land with the tail down, but it's a decent start.
>>
>>117472
>>117475
You need to get decent ollies first before trying to consistently land the basic flip tricks.
>>
>>117476
I can ollie over a deck on flat and more than waist high with a kicker. My ollies are fine. My struggle is getting my back foot out of the way for the flip and back on comfortably/not just with my heel.
>>
>>
>>
>>117477
>I can ollie over a deck on flat

Lmao. Read it again. You NEED to get DECENT ollies first. You can ollie a deck on flat lmao, but without a skateboard how many can you jump over? Like 7? Until you learn how to properly jump with your skateboard (ollie) you'll be wondering why you can't land kickflips. You don't have a smooth effortless ollie yet. You're doing some autistic twitchy stiff leg kickflips and you're relying on your dawg mentality to land them. And that's fine, but if you have to ask why you're not landing them consistently, it's because your ollies are terrible. Once you get good ollies you'll start understanding what I'm talking about.
>>
>>117474
>Plus none of you guys itt are good enough to need the best woodshop deck possible
you need to be good to care about the quality of your shit? guess we should all be skating wal mart boards and ordering bearings from ali express then. save the good shit for the pros and local rippers
>The graphic is the most important part.

You're incorrectly assuming that my ollies aren't consistent and, sorry man, but if having a consistent ollie that high isn't "decent" enough for a kickflip, then I don't know what the fuck is. I'm rolling away from them fine. I have the pop and the height, the thing that wigs me out with kickflips is that my back foot needs to come completely off and back on, where with my ollies it can just hover above them a few cm. I usually catch them heel heavy because I'm freaking out and half putting my foot down. Not everyone gets them easily.
>>
>>117527
If you're having back foot issues with kickflips it's because your ollies are still bad and you don't have the habit of lifting your back foot. Practice your ollies more or just keep grinding kickflips until you build the muscle memory and strength.
>>
>>117527
Is anything consistent? realistically. Geez, been skating a long time and still have a wonky ollie here and there.

stop over thinking it. just see yourself doing it.
>>
>>117527
go do pop-shuvs, 180s, more ollies whatever. Dont just autistically focus on 1 trick, humans dont learn that way. As you get better with the fundementals that confidence will come easy.

>usually catch them heel heavy because I'm freaking out and half putting my foot down
the entire reason this dude is telling you that you need to have your ollies on lock to solve your kickflip problem is because an ollie and a kickflip are just natural extensions of each other, the only thing you're really doing different from an ollie is moving your ankle off to the side instead of keeping it up on the board. you shouldn't have to be worried about "putting your back foot down". because if you had your ollies as good as you say you do, the board itself would be floating up to your back foot naturally without any kind of issues, just like it does with an ollie, you're just lifting your leg up as you kickflip and the board will rise up with you and lock onto your back foot IF you're doing kick flips the proper way, where it is simply an extension of your ollie. you might think your ollies are fine and consistent, but if you don't even realize this little tip im telling you, you don't know enough about your ollies at all and should probably expand on them a little bit before you start getting offended people are rightfully calling them bad.
>>
>>117419
i bet nora's is pure flappy roast
>>
>>117538
best way to expand on ollies? just jumping up/down gaps ledges and mannies?
>>
>>117537
I'm not from Ventura, I just ended up here. It was pretty affordable when I first moved here. Rent has gone up a lot in the past two years but mine hasn't been raised yet so I can still survive.

It's also a typical California town where they are some super rich families, like Diego Todd's, and then there are all the people who just go to their jobs and get by. I need to get out of here soon, it's getting full of yuppies.
>>
>>117541
You going to Wyoming?
>>
>>117542
Idk. I'm not from California originally so I'm not gonna be like one of those California transplants that everyone hates. I'm just a guy who ended up here.

hes prob just mad autistic and relates with your slight autism. i attract these kids at skateparks too sometimes. dont feel bad just ignoring them u prob give them more attention than anyone else so they wont be upset or notice much
>>
kickflip help guy.. why dont u just try popping them lower so u dont have to catch them and they just land normal and u land on top of it. thats how most normal people learn kickflips.. and then when u get them higher/better ollie u will just naturally catch them without thinking about it
>>
Anyone else get weird big toe pain when they skate a lot/more than usual. I don't know what the fuck this is or how to fix it, but it won't go away....

the closest thing I could find online is "turf toe" but i dont remember spraining my toes.. just remember having a fun long skate session and then waking up with big toe pain the next morning that is taking forever to go away... i rested for awhile to no avail and then i went for a walk one day the pain went away and then it came back way worse again the next day... what's the fastest way to heal this shit i been off my board for 3 fucking weeks now and fall east coast weather is my favorite time to skate :(

What new tricks is everyone working on this weekend? I'm still working on back smiths in tranny. Sometime soon I'll be putting them down on pool coping.

what trick is this? When the very tip of the tail slides along the top of the feature.
>>
>>117538
Maybe I need to adjust my timing with my ollies then. Generally when I bring my back foot up, I'm kicking the nose forward at the same time. I'll dick around with kicking the nose later than normal and see how that helps with kickflips.
>>
>>117261
I’m that valleybro, I never saw you post anything about trying to meetup otherwise I’d come through and skate with you but I’m only free to skate on the weekends. Maybe I’ll come up to the desert for a sesh sometime soon, although I’d say if any other bros live out in the AV, Santa Clarita would be a much better meetup
>>
>>117557
idk what it's called when you slide on flat like that. it's a tailblock when you do it on a ramp.
>>
>>117556
I filmed a lil heelflip on a 4 stair today. Not sure if anyone wants to see. Also you shouldn't do bareback with Smith the tranny. Might catch chicken pox.
>>
>>117560
Santa Clarita would be a good spot because it's central between Ventura, the desert and the valley. Plus it's got a lot of different shit there to skate. I've heard it gets crowded with little kids on weekends though.
>>
You califaggots better record a few clips when you meetup, even if it's just a flatground rocket ollie.
>>
>>117563
Yeah it’s a nice middle point between having to drive all the way out to the AV or you coming all the way down to LA/some part of the valley. I was a local for a couple of years, the only real times it gets crowded is like towards the afternoon on the weekdays because of the lights. A morning sesh during the weekend would be fine desu, and even if it did end up getting a bit busy, the park itself is so huge that you can avoid people by just skating something else. Honestly one of my favorites in the area. I moved as soon as they started opening the new parks in the AV, kind of sucks but it’s nice to see them and the kind of skating it breeds. I still go every once in a while to see family, next time I’ll post something the night before if you wanna skate George Lane/Jane Reynolds in the morning

>>117564
I’ve got a mediocre bag of tricks but I’m always down to post OC desu
>>
>>117565
Jane reynolds looks fucken sick. I just dunno how early i'd be able to get out there because i think that's like 1.5 hours from ventura. But it looks like it's worth the drive.

9 days is enough time to wait after twisting your ankle, r-right?

You should wear an ankle brace under your sock, that's what i used to do when i would sprain my ankles a bunch.
>>
Does anyone else find full pipe skating really boring?
>>
>>117574
if you say so

>>117569
what do you mean twist it. did you roll it or just like half roll it. it should be fine go skate
>>
>>117314
Buy a half-inch thick solid oak board. Cut it to 27” long and about 7” wide, shape as necessary. If you want a kicktail, cut a wedge and glue it onto the top of the tail. Buy some old rollerskates off ebay and use their hangars on your truck kingpins, or use Penny trucks. get a round puck of ¾” thick plastic and screw it to the underside of the tail (slider to protect the wood). As for wheels, your choices are Kryptonics Star Trac (wheels in that pic), Tunnel Rocks, OJ Hot Juice, Sims Snakes, or Sims Street Comps. Historically, the duro would’ve been around 85-93, but most modern repro 70s wheels are in the high 70s-low 80s duro.

I never said I don’t skate. I just have awareness in the fact I am mentally stuck at 15, unlike you mr “I’m a REAL man, that’s why I don’t wear shorts” (a supremely childish conception of what a ‘man’ is, btw)
>>
>>117567
its a great park, and such a massive step-up from the other parks that the AV had for 20+ years, but if you're all the way in Venture i'd imagine they have a lot more transition based parks that you could enjoy. regardless, the bowl they have is very fun to skate with both a small and deep end, AND they have a legit bowl with pool coping to fuck around in if thats more your speed.

if you don't want to drive that far, i'd be down for a meet-up somewhere near the valley, or maybe i'll come up to Ventura one of these days and hit you up for a chill morning sesh
>>
>>117590
Ventura actually has really shitty skateparks but the neighboring cities have good ones. Westlake has a pretty fun little park that would be a good in between for us. I usually skate Ojai which has a perfect bowl but nothing else worth going there for.
>>
>>117587
Ventura was actually super chill when i first moved here, it's just become pretty bad in the last couple of years with all the people trying to escape LA. But it's still nice, it has a sick skate scene

The main problem with santa Clarita is like I said earlier I can only do mornings because I have kids and a wife and my Saturdays are busy.
And over there in Valencia ,Saturday morning is closed to adults and it's kids only. To the other guy in Palmdale I'm usually in either George or Jane on Sat morning and sometimes Sunday. You've probably commented on videos I posted here before? Someone knew the park layout it was probably you.
Anyway if you guys want to meet up don't let my schedule stop you. I could always meet the fellow AV anon some time.
>>
So we have 2 palmdale anons, 1 SFV anon, and 1 ventura anon (me), are there any other Socal anons here?
>>
>>117615
huh im not a poser though. like i have no intention of seeming like a skater

I'm gonna say it
I literally unironically don't like woman's skateboarding in any aspect
they're literally just so behind in skill level that even fucking local kids are way better than them
You'd think skateboarding is pretty unisex otherwise but it's a disgrace to look at
They're hanging with top tier pros, have 5+ sponsors behind them and still they're so far behind
>>
>>117678
i just don't get why bitches can't flip into grinds yet. like i can accept that girls might have less pop and not be able to handle the same impacts but there's no reason for them to be behind on the tech game. if anything you'd think they'd have advantages for that shit because of their lower center of gravity, just like they do in judo.
>>117666
gj satan.
it you can learn to treflip on that shitty ground you'll be able to do them anywhere
>>
>>117680
>there's no reason for them to be behind on the tech game
chicks are far less coordinated than men so a female tech skater is probably never going to happen.

i just can't stand how when you watch chicks skate tranny all their tricks are like so... weak. like their grinds are half as long and they never pop out of them, they just fall out of them. every trick just looks like it's the first one they've ever landed and they're scared to be aggressive with it.
>>
>>117669
No, I'm not gay.

>>117666

Saw a guy give a fucking awful "lesson" to a little kid today.

>kid can barely push. Isn't comfortable enough to swap stances yet. First thing I see him do is try to show the kid how to kickturn on flat, he can't even do a quarter rotation yet. Obviously very early days for him.
>guy has him going down steep banks and trying to frontside carve a sharp corner. Eats shit on the first one because he doesn't know how to stop and clips the fence. Kid can't do the full carve. Has him try twice then stop
>tries to get him to do one of those rail-to-regular flip things. Can't do it so he stops him
>next he tries to get him to ride off a curb high ledge. There's not even a half a board length run up to the drop. Doesn't tell the kid you need to manual off curbs; goes nose first, falls off. Guy stops him after one attempt

This "teacher" had a rack of kids skateboards with him and a tshirt with his logo on it, yet I didn't see him teach thay kid a single thing or even encourage him to keep trying something more than once. Thank Christ there are some actual good instructors who regular that park.
