soty predictions? My money's on tfunk. he's got the street cred.
here's another action shot for you boys to start the thread off high octane
skateboarding videogames have really given non-skaters a terrible perception of what is actually possible/impressive on a real life skateboard
is this trick i thought up possible? basically using the tail and nose friction to slow my descent.
Has anyone pulled off webm related irl? I think one of the youtube skaters did it once, but I can't remember which one.
>>124878was his skate movie any good?
>>124878>>124881It bothers me that there are "people" who unironically say this guy is /fa/.
>>124874what would be the benefits of having your feet stuck on the deck?
>>124880+1 for T Funk. For that China Banks transfer alone. New part soon too.
>>124904Lazy airs. I mean yeah it would be pointless for plaza style parks but I guess it would make getting decent air on transition much less of an advanced trick. Idk you could use magnets instead or something to let you bail and push.
>>124907Man, I'm not sure you've ever actually tried to get air at all. Even with magnets or any other type of thing to fix your feet to a board it would be a mess:>stuck in one stance the whole time, can't properly shift weight to the nose or tail for basically any kind of stall>many grabs would also be super fucking hard because you have to bend into uncomfortable positions to reach the spot you want. Even a nose grab would put your ankle under pressure or put you in a bad position for landing>ollies are also super hard because you can't kick the nose properly and do that levering motion. You're basically locked into early grabs, only with your feet instead of just your hands>flip tricks also impossible>rotations are way harder because you're locked into a board that's a fraction of the size of a snowboard without the ability to fully shift weight and foot position >one footed graps like judos are also impossibleThere's a reason people don't do it beyond for the lulz. Just do the experiment yourself; duct tape your feet to a board and see how much harder it is to do 90% of your basic manoeuvres.
>watch Nyjah's new video>undeniably burly rails and tricks to go with them>can't enjoy it because you either have to see him in shorts so short they threaten you with seeing his balls, or fucking leggings tucked into his socks>and lots of obnoxious done shots zipping along for no real reason that make it harder to take in what you're looking atCan someone get this guy some god damn pants already? He invented a new child molester look and just will not move on from it. Once he starts to look remotely old he'll have people calling the cops on him for hanging around schools dressed like that.
>>124911The filming was disorientating. Ty Evans should be banned forever.
>>124912The editing was shit too. No buildup to anything. No good b roll. May as well have just watched SLS.
>>124915How did you even find this you absolute dog?
>>124917I watch many skate videos and think about tricks all day
>>124918>tfw watch many skate videos too except I forget what I saw within 20 minutes of having seen any video
>>124919Yeah it depends on the video. I can watch Flip Sorry in my head
if those stupid fucking shoes I bought from the thrift store suck why do I even need skate shoes to begin with, i've just been skating with a pair of slip on shoes whenever I skate and i've heard people say shoes make a big difference so whats the fucking point?
>>124921For you it doesn't matter because you just ride your board around.
>>124921it doesnt matter for you like the other anon said, you dont know what youre doing
>>124921Ragdoll could skate with slip ons lolShoes are overrated, just skate barefoot like Jamie Thomas!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCbJ4UXb6Io
>>124922im gonna start practicing ollieing up curbs I want to get better im just gonna not worry about shoes then since it doesnt seem to matter at my skill level
>>124928Your shoes will rip fast trying to learn ollies. It's part of the game though regardless.
>>124929I already know how to ollie just not good at doing it without thinking
>>124930Ok cool but I didn't ask though.
>>124931what did you have for lunch today?
>>124933maybe thats why you're so grumpy, I had 3 eggs, spam and toast
>>124936I'm grumpy because I can't skate anymore and I also want to die. Spam is disgusting.
>>124937try cooking it, i didnt like spam until I pan fried italso why can't you skate your shoes suck?
>>124938No the fuck I got injured. Imagine being stopped by your shoes.
>>124939what kinda injury? hope you recover fast, they give you norco or pain pills for it?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vbIenYmSsgSick new jenkem video
>>124940No it's my knee. I'm that guy. It's been fully over ever since then.
>>124894I know someone who worked on the set building props. He said he had to set up like over 100 decks while filming the movie lmao. And he said jonah hill and Mikey alfred are pieces of shit who know nothing about skateboarding
>>124904There was some shoes in the 90s with holes in the bottom and some plastic thing you screwed onto your board. I thought it was called lox shoes but google gives me nothing. They were pretty dumb.
>>124942You're such a kook
>raining every day for over a week>only dry spot is a multi car park >gangs of teenagers drink thereI love the UK
>>124950I know it sounds cringe saying this but I promise you you say that to me irl you're losing teeth. I'm just being 100% honest.
>>124941sick, love getting on a dirt board when theres one around
ESG: Where people who don't skate go to talk about lunch
Can you faggots stop arguing about mundane shit and post some clips im tired of only seeing flat ground heelflips and a middle aged father skate here.I know what you're thinking.>you firstwell i fucking suck ass at skateboarding and all these threads do is motivate me to argue about wheels and shoes when im at the skatepark.
I had a a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch.
>>124961eat my shit
>>124959watch a fucking skate vid faggot
grumpy posters didn't eat lunch today
>>124951>have a skate sesh>then a beer afterwardsSounds like a good deal.
>>124952I’d kick your leg and you’d spend the next decade crying about it
>>124959You just shat all over the only people who do post clips, and you admit you suck.. Why dig that hole?
>>124972You'd be snoozing on the ground knocked out before you even tried.
>>124951OI! CLEAN SHIRT!
>>124959I'll try get some clips tonight. I'm gonna skate the bowl.
>>124978holy fuck dude actually shut up
>>124911>>124912the filming was so shit i would have assumed it was filmed by some kind of normie action sports production team and not anyone that actually skates, fucking lines behind bushes where you cant even see what he's doing kek. other than that I'm glad he didn't waste his time skating dumb shit like stairs and gaps and gave us what we came for (rail chompin) but man his trick selection is such a waste of his potential.
>>124978lmao shut the fuck up faggot you can't even chase after someone without your knees exploding. stop acting hard and stop shitting up these threads with shit nobody cares about loser. if you spent as much time actually trying to heal your knee as you do crying about it in here you'd be out skating again.
I'm really bummed to see all this arguing. Wtf are you okay?
>>124990shut the fuck up i'll knock your teeth out i'm the best skater in here but i haven't ever skated because i broke my hymen on my way to get my disability check and whatever OC you post here is shit I drive a Nissan and ate 3 bags of Doritos for lunch today
anyone have an opinion on dwindle decks? shop by me has a really nice zero deck i want to get but i don't want to buy something imma snap in 2 weeks. part of me also is also just nostalgic.
>>124942holy shit dude you really need help lol. how are you gonna sit on the internet all day and fucking antagonize random kids on the internet.you're a pathetic loser and you always were, even when you could skate.
Zoomer girls vibed me againI think one of them is getting fucked by a local ripper so now they think they are hot shit and they own the park
How do you vibe someone? It's a vibe or be-vibed world out here in california bros
>>125008all the zoomer girls at my local are cute and mind their business.sounds like a skill issue, stop being an autist
wtf is being vibed?
>>125010I'm one of the few people in this thread who can actually skate
>>125011People being unfriendly in a passive aggressive way. Standard california shit
>>125012I can skate too but don’t have the autism you do where teenage girls hanging out and having fun is giving me weird vibes.
>>124999check'd and correct>>125008you're probably right>>125009just give the half-smile in their direction like you're disgusted by whatever they're doing but don't want to interact with them. Like they're a drunk homeless guy walking by and you're out with your family.>>125010vibing is very real and very regional. the "mall kids" of yesteryear now hang out at skateparks it can get pretty annoying if you're just out trying to skate and mind your own.>>125011check'd>>125012incorrect>>125013Some of the worst offenders are kids who get pretty good but don't have anything else going on in their lives so they wind up being cringey gatekeepers. Kinda like a lot of the idiots posting in here. People get very territorial.
>>125016vibing is "real" if you let it be. I grew up moving around a lot as a kid/teen, and I've never gotten vibed out at a single skate park because I just show up to skate by myself and just don't really interact with anyone. throw some headphones in, don't really pay attention to anyone besides a head nod when dudes make eye contact and making sure you are spatially aware of where you/others are at so you don't run into anyone, and I can guarantee you that you will never get vibed out anywhere. This dude is clearly some autist if hes talking about getting emotionally checked by a bunch of suburbanite 16 year old girls who either look like Poe Pinson or Nelly. Give me a fucking break, dude. How in your own head do you have to be to actually start thinking about who the local teenagers are fucking because they gave you a glare when you did your pussy as slash grind.
>>125017i haven't been at a skatepark where there were any other people in probably over a decade but i do remember as a kid there were a lot of weird cliquey groups but girls didn't even really skate back then they were all ramp tramps who would sit on the funbox and smoke cigarettes all afternoon so if you're being vibed by some bitch who's actually skating that's an improvement imo. trying to learn to skate as a grown man surrounded by highschoolers probably feels awkward as fuck so i don't envy newfag anons. but also this is why you bitches should skate street spots because the only people who are gonna vibe you are cops and security jannies
>>125017it's ironic because you're kinda vibing on him rn
This one time at the park some 14 yr old kids took theirs shirts off and I started to feel a bit like Hunter Bidenesque. Did I get vibed?
>>125026fat bill feels that vibe all the time
>>124986I hate how bad people have become at filming action in general. Filmers have such a hard time just sitting the fuck still at the best, clearest angle they can find. I know this one martial artist/stunt person who can do the sickest shit ever but every time they get someone to film it, the guy is fucking swinging the camera around with every single hit and ends up obscuring the actually good stunt work.I honestly don't know if I hate action-slide-and-drone-oversell filming or arbitrary-sub-SD-VX1000 filming more at this point.
Rule 14 is still in effect. Stop shitting up your own threads.
This thread lacks dumb beginner questions about ollies, so here's one for you. I'm having trouble feeling like I'm going to slip out of my ollies when I go to pop, but mostly at indoor skateparks with smooth floors. Is this normal and something you have to get used to? I fucking hate the feel of it and it makes me second guess myself as I'm about to pop, then I flail like a retard because I'm expecting to slam.
>>125031It used to happen to me when I was being a bitch. When I stopped being a bitch it stopped happening.
>>125029Rule 10 is still in effect as well. You especially take note.
>>125032Thanks, anon, I feel free now. I will not hesitate the next time.
>>125031mm yea just do a million more you'll get it. surface friction shouldn't change your ollie if you're doing it right. Force should go STRAIGHT DOWN on the back foot- you're probably scooping it back or something. the front foot pulls the board forward only after it has left the ground. Practice more stationary then moving and bend your knees more and make sure your shoulders are straight is the general advice. sorry if this sounds 'hand wavey' but the truth is that you gotta just do it a million times more than you think until it becomes like natural. It's like learning to hold a pen kids you start out ham-fisted then eventually it's second nature. filming yourself and comparing it to a good one in slow motion might help
>>125035Thanks, anon, makes sense to me. I've seen a lot of tutorials talk about how when you do moving ollies, you pop slightly away, so maybe I'm over exaggerating that and throwing myself off balance. I also have trouble with over popping, so I can't do small pops and ollies, I always have to go big because for some reason it feels safer, dunno why.
>>124904I think it's possible to have something like this that works well but not with a regular skateboard and the baggage that comes with. whatever it would apply to would be fundamentally different
skate boarding is for stupid people and its a waste of time. I dont care how many skate board flips you do or how far you can jump on your skate board. All this does is waste time, break bones, drain taxpayer money to build parks and ruin pavement. Its not an XTREEEEME radical sport, its exTREEEMEly dumb

WHERE DO I SKATE IN THE WINTER FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
>>125017Yeah sure if you're a loser who can't talk to anyone anyway and just skates with his airpods in all the time you might not notice people trying to vibe you. I'm a normal person and can read social cues so I actually notice that stuff. Stop acting like you're too cool to get vibed you try hard lmao
>>125026Probably not. Sounds like normal teen boys. Now if those same boys started glaring at you everytime they rolled in your direction, skating past you inappropriately close (almost shoulder checking you) or snaking you when you're waiting your turn to skate a ramp then yeah maybe you got vibed.Like I don't give a shit if people don't wanna talk at the skatepark and just keep to themselves but vibing someone is just cringe. The crew that these chicks are probably getting passed around by are notorious for vibing everyone because they think they're a) really good and b) all upper middle class or rich kids that think they are hard because their local is a ghetto skatepark. For some reason they think skating at a ghetto spot somehow means they grew up rough or something lmao. Anyway these chicks were chill until they started following around that crew, now they vibe everyone. At the end of the day I don't even care they some Nelly impersonators vibe a grown man at a skatepark, I'm more just posting it here because it's cringe
>>125045https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOqIHExaxhYIn the streets
Imagine if a Nelly impersonator trying to shoulder check a grown man while skating past and they got knocked the fuck out
>>125057Can't wait. Maybe we get November snow like last year
Where would you rather live:>a place where you get vibed by teenage nelly impersonators>a place where it snows for 6 months of the year and you're lucky to skate flatgroundMe? I choose the teenage vibe queens
>>125046>I'm a normal person and can read social cues so I actually notice that stuff. Stop acting like you're too cool to get vibed you try hard lmaoIf this isn’t the most cucked statement itt.Holy fucking bitch made poser lmao. Keep your eyes on the board kiddo and maybe you’ll pop your tricks like a man someday.
>>125072Lmao. Cope and seethe sperg
>>124997Dwindle does not make Zero

>>125075>Sperg>"I'm a normal person and can read social cues"It's ok anon you can let your spaghetti out here
>>125092>Ti-time for some actionThe same?! Revived?
>>125093that clip is probably a decade old. axion has been brought back like 4 times now, it never works out.
you guys are probably going to vibe me for mentioning zumiez but you can get a pair of Axions for 25 bucks and the other Axions there are on clearance AND buy one get one half off. I don't think this revival is going to make it either
>>125100I shouldv'e posted this picture with that post
>>125102But these are ugly though.
>>125103Eat my shit
>>125104No I don't want to be like you.
>>125104Anon stop being so lewd it's only Wednesday
>>125100>>125102nobodys going to vibe you for copping a deal. but black friday is coming up and there will be much better deals. all the soletech companies es, emerica, etnies are going to do their usual 50% off with free shipping plus another 20% with a code. zumiez will have better deals + skate warehouse and every skateshop in the world. buy those ugly shoes if you want but its better to wait a week
>>125112>soletech companies es, emerica, etniesNo
>>125113i bet you wear vans
>>125114I wear your mom on my cock
>>125114Im guessing he wears a moon boot to protect his 17 yr old acl tearSide note is there any reason n or to but Ed emericas Etnies besides what I assume is the cool factor?
>>125123>is there any reason n or to but Ed emericas Etnies besides
>>125123>Side note is there any reason n or to but Ed emericas Etnies besides what I assume is the cool factor?nigga wut
>>125123The shoe quality is shit compared to Nike or Adidas.
>>125128>>125129it says not to buy Es emericas Etnies, and they feel a little cheaper, but good enough that I've had a few pairs because of sales and they fit my feet.
>>125130theyre also like 3x cheaper on sale and are actual skate companies
>>125132So i'd just be producing 3x as much waste? I know people don't think about it in skateboarding very often but shoes are just another thing that ends up in landfill. There's no way around it happening but you can minimize by not buying shit that will wear out in like a month.Yeah maybe if you're getting them on sale it'd be fine but there is no way you could get me to buy a pair of any of those company's shoes for more than like $30 when Nikes or Adidas have better grip and last 3x as long.
>>125134shut up hippy im not reading all this
>>125123people say they're cheaper but ime they outlast corpo shit.
>>125134nike kills kangaroos anonlike a lot of kangaroos
>>125134What if I only buy Duff's and Ipaths from ebay
>>125139i really want a pair of ipath cats. they look comfy
>>125137So? Do you know how many fucking kangaroos there are in Australia? They killed most of the dingos and abos and now there are no predators to control the roo population. And you can't even shoot them on your own property when they are eating your crops because of retarded libshit laws.
>>125134This. They might not be as 'cool' as a smaller 'skate' brand but they're objectively better if you plan on actually skating them through the life of the shoe. Nike are up there with Disney McDonalds and Starbucks in terms of companies targeted by 'anticorporate' artists like banksy, which is ironic because at scale their production is much less bad for the environment than if you took these smaller companies and scaled them up. Same as the zumiez hate and 'buy local' bullshit- it's a quaint idea to support 'independent creators' but it's just inefficient on so many levels. >t. shameless Amazon/Walmart shopper
Now I now why you guys get bullied at the skateshop
>>125146>achtually supporting globalhomo corpos is basedalso the economies of scale meme has been massively disproven, chaim
>>125147I support my local skate shop as much as I can but they only stock cons and vans. I mean who is even sponsored by a soletech brand at this point anyway? A corpo company like vans objectively does more for the skate community yet people talk about muh skater owned brand when soletech is owned by some euro nobody
>>125148What are you talking about? It's cheaper per unit to make 30,000 of literally anything than 300
>>125046>Y-YOU'RE GETTING VIBED BY THE 12TH GRADERS AT THE PARK TOO AND YOU JUST DON'T KNOW IT...lol. lmao.
>>125149Sole Tech absolutely mogs Converse and Vans in terms of quality and durability in a skate shoe, who gives a fuck who they sponsor lol are you 12?
>>125154the sole tech teams are pretty rad imohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X7_DGpTz4Yhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSxGXkiDhS0nike and adidas have so many riders that they just have no identity whatsoever imo
>>125134Kill yourself Nike shill
>>125156agreed. A company like Nike has such a diluted team that the brands identity is basically nonexistent. You could argue that perhaps a company like Emerica might be "trapped" in the past because it's a team of heavy rail chompers and hammer type skaters but at least they've got a classic image that they've stuck with for years.
>>125156if you buy skateboarding equipment based on how much you like their marketing campaign over the raw performance of the product you're a hopeless homosexual
>>125159If you sell out the industry for Nike or Adidas then the industry will never produce quality product and will continue down the road of trannies and women's skating like it has lately. The only pros will be corporate approved good boys and your favourite skater will be flipping burgers.
i will keep wearing lugz until THEY sponsor me
>>125160Nike are literally producing the highest quality shoes I don't give a shit who rides for them I would buy the best even if they had no team
>>125159>over the raw performance of the productso why aren't you buying Sole Tech brands considering the Marina is the highest "quality" skate shoe on the market right now
>>125156Yes. I tried so many shoes this year and éS were my favorites.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HVq9PIGcmMI want to see more Tom Penny footage
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4PSYtQGODUWhat a bunch of heroes. Bucky knocking it out of the park yet again.Why is the Combi Bowl closing anyway?
>>125046>Stop acting like you're too cool to get vibedMuch like the game, you're always getting vibed, but you don't have to care.
I just learned to ollie. Later losers. B)
>>125183Post a webm of yourself performing an ollie.
>>125183No one can do any trick they say they can until the evidence is posted.
>>125044this is every board on this site ngl
I like how some guy doing an ollie is an incredible feat for some of the posters here
>>125188no one said or implied that, you dribbling retard
>never had a gf>dan corrigan haswhat the FUCK
>>125171Someone died there a few years ago and it's been a battle to keep it open ever sinceThe guy who died was riding a bmx bike btw.
>>125191Oh fuck, rip. So what does that mean then? Insurance hikes? Don't parks in America have you sign a waiver?
>>125191>go to park for skateboards>ride fucking bike on it>diewow
>>125153Lol forreal. The reason that incel is getting "vibe checked" is because no one wants his pedo ass vibes at the spot.
>>125191>bmx rider dies trying to send shitlmao while this general is proud of ollies and arguing about shoes because they arent core faggot shit
I think he hit a light, got cut and bled to death which sucks ass but also you shouldn't jump into the lights, it's not like they are a moving obstacle
new cepeda part droppedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4ZrC0Zrg-k
>be bmxtard>le send it so hard you end up getting your throat cut by a ceiling fixture and you bleed out and die>family sues skatepark so skateboarders will never ride world famous bowl againBmx riders are cancer
>>125203pretty run of the mill desu
>>125203that was ok and all but look at this cunts footagehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mg9UnOb62RY
>>125210thats more like it
>>125204>bmx riders send suicide shit>local incel skaters>NOOOOO my heckin vibe checkBeing a faggot is not illegal. Except for trannies and dykes
I never get Vibed because I skate in the morning to avoid all the retards. I don't care about you. And what you have to say. Don't reply to this because I don't care.
>>125216How dare you mind your own business? Don’t you know everybody at the skatepark is entitled to your attention? If you don’t care then they’ll take it personally and throw a fit. You’re an insensitive fuck face, an overall bad person and probably a pedo because you didn’t give these attention starved twats what they want.
>>125218Stop judging yourself and others. I'm straight so there is no pedophilia in my gene pool.
>>125210Fuck yeah Noah has been killing it for a minute
>>125220Oh how you’ve missed the point of my post. Anons envy your lack of “vibe checks”. Truly an inspiration on /esg/, the assblasted anons should take notes from such an elder autist. May their vibes remain uncheckable and their sessions a peaceful, productive one. Godspeed.
The majority of skateboarders are probably some of the lamest people you will ever come across in your life.Why does this sport attract so many losers? You can see in this thread how quickly these people will differentiate between themselves and the 'incels' getting 'vibed' because they need to establish their place in the skate hierarchy. It's the only hierarchy that they will ever have in their life.
32 yo and just getting back into skating for the first time in 15 years, where is the best place to get an andy anderson deck? also need one of his signature helmets too. is ccs still the king of skateshops?
>>125232>everyone is lame but meGo felate yourself
>>125190Better to have no gf than to have this.
>>125233Yes yes and yes.
>>125235Better than the average esg poster
>>125239The average esg poster isn't a girl.
>>125235Do you guys think Dan Corrigan is a really bad person? Gifted Hater thinks so because he first met his girlfriend when she was 19, and he had power over her because he was friends with vloggers. He seemed to get pretty emotional over it.
>>125245Gifted hater is like 22 and doesn't realize that when he gets to 30 he will also probably be wanting to fuck a 19 year old
>>125245No. I'm just saying his gf is trash tier.
>>125201>>125191https://www.cbsnews.com/losangeles/news/tyler-kanarr-dead-vans-skatepark-orange-closed/>Officials confirmed that 25-year-old Kanarr died Feb. 25 after a freak accident at the popular skatepark.>"There was apparent damage to a ceiling-level beam, where it appeared as though the bike had struck," Deputy Chief Robert Stefano, of the Orange Fire Department, said. "There was broken, fluorescent glass on the ground and the injuries were consistent with that of striking what appeared to be a fluorescent light bulb in his neck.">Firefighters said when they got to the skatepark, which is directly across the street from the UCI trauma center, witnesses had wrapped t-shirts around his neck to try to stop the bleeding.>It was not immediately clear what led up to the accident, though firefighters and paramedics said they did everything they could to save the man.>"The injuries were significant enough where he lost a tremendous amount of blood on scene as well as en route to the hospital," Stefano said.>The coroner confirmed that Kanarr died as a result of blood loss from a neck laceration.Bro got so much air that he hit a fucking light and got glass jammed into his arteries. God damn.Has anyone ever died at your park(s)?
>>125230A Number 5-0 With Extra Bacon
>>125248>Has anyone ever died at your park(s)?No idea if this is true but it was rumoured that an indoor skate park in Dublin, Ramp and Rail, shut down because a kid fell off his board while coming down a bank, no helmet, and slid at high speed head first into the front of a flatbar, giving him a fatal brain injury.
>>125229lol elder. That's funny. Am I supposed to be a role model? On wheels. your literally the reason why I hate being around people. "Pedo" "autist" yours toxic as they come. Fuck off.Feel free to unload on me some more. I'm here for it.
>>125248no but my friend died bombing a hill. board slipped out and hit his head on the curb. RIP homie :(
>>125232Every culture has its own shit. It's only lame because you judge people tho. When people stop vibing others and just skate it's alright.
>>125248RIP to a real nigga.
>>125232I don’t disagree with you but these days skateboarding attracts a ton of losers who are probably doing pretty well by societies standards. The thing is that there is something inherently wrong with these people. Like you could tell it’s something they latch onto because they don’t have much outside of wagecucking and think it will make them a more interesting person. There’s no actual passion backing this interest. It’s all for social reasons the main one thinking it will get them women. These are the same type of people who complain about getting vibed because everybody can tell they don’t skate for the sake of skating. Uninteresting losers need to stick to chasing the bag and buy their personality. Real skaters don’t give give a shit about a hierarchy. They’re actually focused on taking their skateboarding to the next level. Everything outside of that is irrelevant and most likely poser shit.
>>125259You make a lot of assumptions to justify your hate
>>125252Damn it anon, quit taking things so seriously because I was mostly joking by setting examples. I was with you the entire time numb nuts. My apologies, I could not help myself from shit posting. The ridiculousness of the whole subject matter was just too good to pass up.
>>125259Bra Im kinda older, but skating like u said, is all about progression. I'm not in it to get sex, I've lost my lust for women. Skating is inherently a gift that keeps my arteries from clogging.
>>125260Think what you will. I’ve seen and experienced enough at the skateparks to recognize creeps and losers who lurk around. There’s clearly a difference between somebody who is focused on trying to get that next trick and a shit head who just squats on a ledge all day.
>>125245>>125246Gifted hater is inching towards 30. He is a basedboy who has to keep up with appearance. That means catering and walking on eggshells whenever the alphabet community is involved. The usual normie virtue signaling bs. God forbid he makes a video about tranny kikes who continue to swindle kids out of competition money.
>>125248>striking what appeared to be a fluorescent light bulb in his neckholy shit
>>125265Fuck the alphabet. Any lesbians here here? You like big titties? Or big plastic dildos? ENlighten us.
>went to the park and nobody say hi to meALL SKATEBOARDERS ARE LOSERS!!!!
>>125272Omg like I can't even make friends too! So let's blame everyone else! Except us. We'll be losers together.
>>125245as someone that actually used to watch their videos in the early hay days yes he's a piece of shit for dating her and it's not even cause of the age gap thing cause that's whatever, people mature differently. but they have a really weird power dynamic, both of them are bums that upload garbage content for money but dan is like an actual bum while Haley is just a typical early 20s slacker, too young to see what a fucking loser he is. you can tell he tries to push her into that influencer/youtube grind for income, she probably wouldn't even make content now if they weren't together. she was just like some youtube kid on revive making clickbait vids so they'd send her free shit. but you can tell he controls her if you watch their earlier vids he has to consciously stop himself from being a dick to her every 2 seconds lmao it's kinda fucked. i cant believe she kisses his nasty rotting mouth with decayed teeth.
>>125274IM NOT A LOSER FUCK YOU EVERYONE ELSE IS A LOSER. IM AN ASSISTANT MANAGER AT BEST BUY, NOBODY ELSE AT THE PARK EVEN HAS A JOB, MAYBE ITS BECAUSE THEYRE 16 BUT FUCK THEM.
>>125263>a shit head who just squats on a ledge all day.kek that's me but I'm depressed so i do what i can with the small bursts of energy i get throughout the sesh. if I'm skating with someone it's a totally different story, those are always the best sesh where i actually push myself. i only get like that when i skate alone. i feel like i need someone to hold my hand to get me to actually skate most days, skating alone just isn't appealing to me anymore...
>>125276You must be over 12 to post here.
how do you guys skate alone? i think my brain is too fried to get stimulated by skating alone. i don't have the same passion for skating as when i was younger and would spend hours trying to learn new tricks. i still want to skate as much as i can but now i don't care as much, i feel like once i get a couple more ledge tricks down ill be satisfied forever.
>>125283I usually just have a trick I want to learn and go skate around to warm up and get comfy then build up to it. Sometimes I just feel like cruising around the park.
>>125265Dude gifted hater is not closer to 30 than he is to 20. No fuckin way
>>125272More like>went to the skatepark >hang out with all my friends, say hi to all the other regulars>zoomer whores skate around vibing everyone>everyone cringes
>>125283When i'm skating alone i usually just do little tricks or lines that feel good or are satisfying in some way. I don't really bother trying to learn new tricks. Idk dude my alone sessions are usually just me scratching the skateboard itch and that's about it
>>125232skateparks replaced malls as the teenager hang out zone and some people are so fried or otherwise autistic that they never mentally left the teenager hang out zone[spoiler]i only skate at 2am and avoid all contact with others which is actually worse if we're doing placements on the loser hierarchy [/spoiler]
>that mid 30s guy who skates alone, filming himself doing manual and slappy tricks on a tripod>that guy who was blessed with unreal talent yet loved drugs as much as he loved skating and fried his brain>that boomer with an independent tattoo and thrasher t shirt wearing full pads and helmet doing slash grinds on his old school deck>the guy vibing you wearing dickies cut off at the ankles, cons, a plain white t shirt and a tiny beanie with a spiderweb tattoo on his elbow (has never been to prison)
>>125294>zoomer whores skate around vibing everyoneMaybe it’s cause you’re ugly
>>125283skating alone is a good time to just figure things out imo. like you can go lab a trick on a parking block or jump down a gap 20 times without looking like a total faggot to everyone around you. it's also a good time to go cruise and find new spots or even skate shitty spots that no one else would ever go session. last night i went and skated some garbage 2 foot ditch tranny and it was fun as hell not having to deal with the homies being 'over it' in like 10 minutes.people are kinda gay honestly
>>125283i don't have any friends I wear headphones and I'm an awkward looking older guy who doesn't skate very well. if there's too many people at the spot I'm going to the next one. I would prefer if I could skate without anyone even witnessing me it's just a fun way to exercise and groove to my music. I know I look stupid and I'm not trying to look stupid in a group of similar people because that looks even stupider. 'vibing' to me is when other people are looking at me in a way to make it be known that they're looking at me as if they're going to make me realize I look stupid. It's like when you go to the store and the guy at the shop is shadowing you like you're going to steal something. Usually I just don't buy whatever I was there for and leave. You can tell me I'm an autistic loser I already know.
>>125283I usually do a morning session when the park is empty or go to an indoor park during off peak hours to make sure I get mostly alone time. Then I just grind the same few tricks over and over, cause when people show up, suddenly I have to share and things get less productive. Basically I use the time to go all out on trying to nail something, cause skating with others usually means I get distracted and can't focus on something for more than 10mins at a time. I am a shitty beginner though so I have to grind out the fundamentals constantly.
>>125313>You can tell me I'm an autistic loser I already know.nah>Usually I just don't buy whatever I was there for and leave.this is actually based, usually, i do the opposite case I'm such a pussy
>>125313antisocial turbospergs have always carried skateboarding.all normalniggers are secondaries
Managed a lunchtime session at my crusty local. Ground is actually uneven and bumpy due to what I assume is a shit job in the first place, with shitty patch ups on top. Learning to push on it has been a struggle, but I can push pretty confidently on most surfaces now thanks to it. Gotta push hard to get any kind of speed. It's like weighted training or something.
>>125283I find it meditative and physical demanding like a good gym workout. I tend to make my most progress this way. But it's only ever just flatland stuff because I can't be bothered to go to parks early in the morning. Plus I have a minor fear that I'd eat shit in a bowl, maybe knock myself out or break something and be unable to get out alone.
>>125191>The guy who died was riding a bmx bike btw.the parents were some rich cunts who filed a lawsuit. yay, get your son's favorite hobby shut down becuase youre entitled to some sad money.anyone have any more info on this?
>>125248apparently he had hit some massively high 7ft+ air out of a big quarter
>>125248>Has anyone ever died at your park(s)?yeah, a drunk chick decided to ride down the roll in at my house, ate shit, and three days later died due to alcohol/meth complications not letting her body hear properlyher boyfriend previously ate shit there, didnt heal properly (due to meth) and an infection went from his knee all the way to his dick and he recieved a $200,000 surgery to save his dick which he was able to use again six months later.
>>125204wouldnt lawyers and sue-happy rich people be the cancer?
i think i've only been "vibed" once but only because the zoomer highschooler felt threatened i was ripping his skatepark territory lmaoi'm an older (31 yo) skater that can skate decently - plenty of tricks/grinds and usually skate with headphones on.i remember i was 50-50ing a rail and slipped out and slammed on my ass hard as fuck, but still got straight back up and hit it again immediately. i remember the kid said something as he was sitting with his group of zoomer friends sitting on a ledge (lol), since the rail was right next to them. but i couldnt hear him through the headphones. if you are feeling "vibed" at a park remember that it just means their insecurities are showing
>>125347>if you are feeling "vibed" at a park remember that it just means their insecurities are showingEasily the case when I pop a waist high flat ground ollie in front of their girl.Pro tip: Don’t bring your gf to the skatepark
>>125248>Has anyone ever died at your park(s)?3 people have been shot on different occasions at my childhood local :(
>>125331crust is the best training ground. try rolling around switch and doing fakie mannys at that spot>>125248before we even had a real skatepark there was a fucking sick diy in an abandoned warehouse next to the roller rink. it got shut down because a rail fell on a kid and killed him, iirc he put his backpack under there.
>>125210Current aussie roster getting stacked brah
as a "middle aged father" i don't think i've been vibed - I'm a pretty social dude though. I usually skate in the mornings and there's usually the same people there though. But- when i've skated midday when the skatepark is more crowded- I havent felt that, but im not going to go out of my way to talk to teens either.I wonder if they think i'm vibing them?On the topic of skateboarding alone, my brother works this weekend and i might skate alone tomorrow morning. I have to do shopping for Thanksgiving and run other Saturday errands but i'll be at Jane Reynolds skatepark from 7 to 9. Ventura bro or any other Cali friends in the area if you want to wake up early and skate in the fucking cold, meet me there so you can vibe me.I'm not a huge Dan Corgan fan BUT this video has that skatepark if you want a view of the layout.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPFshfovYik
Our local park is always empty, please visit
>>125276Wild sexist and toxic of you to write an essay about how a grown woman has no agency. You would never last at my local.
>>125313Cant relate since im not melinated.
>>125342Sucks that a spot got shut down but vans was always on some gay shit when it came to bmx at their parks so fuck em.
>>125347Paranoid retard. He saw your old ass eat shit and wondered if you were okay.
>>125365on some gay shit? please elaborate
>>125347>eat shit>some locals ask if you're ok >you blow them off because youre using headphones>go to 4chan to brag about ityou guys really do have autism
so fucking coldskated anywaysface numbpenis small
NEW ATLANTIC DRIFT THIS IS NOT A DRILLhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOryid5NUY4
>>125359Corrigan, NKA and someone else i can't remember are making so much youtube money off Andy Anderson and not giving him shit for it. I don't advocate for a manager in pro skateboarding but this poor guy needs one
>>125376They make less than minimum wage probably.
>>125370Only one day for bikes and mando helmets. Just ban pegs or some shit most riders could benefit from learning pegless grinds anyway.
>>125378you wish wage slave>>125376&& deserves to be exploited hes a clown
>>125383Shittyass skate vlogs don't make real money.
>>125375The Billy Bass was annoying, maybe being British he thought it was novel but those are too ubiquitous to even be kitschy.
>>125378Hello I am Dan Corrigan and would like to officially confirm that I make, on average, $120k from each of my Andy Anderson videos.
>>125399holy shit it's dan, dubs confirm
Who else /backsmith/ gangNo I will not call it a Monty grind you boomer
>>125344Sounds like you have some good parties
>>125359Where tf is Jane Reynolds? I have to finish up a job tomorrow morning so I can't meet you in the desert this time boomer bro
>>125399how do i get 19yo pussy as a 30+yo
>>125403Back smiths aren’t impressive on transition
>>125359I will try to come through and get the boomer sesh going
>>125407Lolwut, back smiths are like the only trick that get me board taps from good skaters.
>>125407This fucking guy, eat a dick
big if true
>>125382you can grind without pegs on bmx?>>125403idgaf if back smiths are easy they comfy and fun as hell[spoiler]they're easy on rails too[/spoiler]>>125406do the bare minimum to look like life is crushing your soul out of your body and you will be the most impressive person in the world to a 19 yo
>>125416I knew someone who worked on a council project where 10 mil of the budget disappeared. They were certain someone pocketed it but they weren't responsible and figured they didn't want to cause trouble with anyone who steals 10 million dollars.No idea about Mason's but I don't think it's a stretch.
>>125416Wasn't this hunk of shit, was it? This opened up recently in London and it's the worst by far.>"resurfaced" tarmac is basically just an old crusty car park with a thin layer of black goop on top. It's even crustier than the road>the spine leads into nothing>none of the ledges have metal caps along the edge so they're all already missing chunks>the planter pyramid thing has a bank on the right side that leads right into a wall>there's a smaller pyramid bank thing that's on the other side of a big rusty drainage grate>it's all on a hill>wooden plant boxes around the enge ate filled with wood chips, which have already started to spill all over the park>there is literally no flow/easy lines>it's in a shit area, BESIDE an overpass instead of under it where it would at least get some shelter It has to be a scam. Victoria park is pretty close to it too and is pretty damn good.
>>125403I think you're a one man gang. Nobody else itt can do these.
>>125433>modern skatepark design>nothing taller than 2 feet tall
Hey poorfags since black friday is coming up Primitive is selling 3 decks for 90 dollars. decks are being btfo for 30 dollars because these idiot companies hoarded so many boards during the pandemic memery. FA still has cheap decks on their site too.ALSOSoletech shoes are all on sale. again. i was on the Emerica site and look at this garbage. Emerica has the audacity to sell this floppy piece of shit for 100 dollars. in a couple of months they'll be going for $30 because nobody wants to pay those prices, and certainly not for such a dumb looking shoe.
i could execute the sickest nbd ever but i’ll never get sponsored because i dont fit the marketable frat guy nuskater aesthetic and live in a canadian shithole
>>125409>>125414I’m terrible at transition and even I can get into back smiths from time to time and stalling them is quite easy. however if you take that trick to a ledge or a rail it’s basically an entire different trick
>>125468Post the clip on social media and hope it goes viral. You could end up on skateline unless somebody poaches your trick before you even get exposure.
>>125477That happened to my friend. He did a Mctwist over a helicopter but some other guy stole the footage and claimed he did it.
>>125472Damn dude you must fucken shred
alright guys, post your favorite video of 2022 >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDETTqJroBg&t=125s
>>125484https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQ0Il9tOfsAI know what the replies will be but I'll post it anyways. Anyone wants to talk shit can see me irl. On god you're going home with no shoes and board.
>>125484This one for surehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcW-w0xZqbshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcW-w0xZqbs
>>125486Yeah this is a cool video. I live in a third world country where skateboarding isn't as advanced, but there's one dude that's flow for Sour. Almost makes it look like he's sponsored, they send him a lot of stuff. He's never worried about boards and sometimes gives 1-2 away to kids. I wonder how considering he's not very good for international standards. He's still cool though, I'm glad he's taken care of.
>>125472No one gives a fuck what's harder, we get rare OC and you straight away shit on it. It's stupid.
If you guys went to your local and you saw a rollerblader just waxing the fuck out of your favorite thing to skate what would you do? Personally for me I would kill them. So fucking glad i don't get regular rollerskate kooks at my local
>>125512I just had that happen to me the other day. I haven't seen a rollerblader irl in probably a decade. He was waxing the coping on this long, wide quarter pipe we have. Everyone asked him what he was doing and he just looked at us with a dumb smile and told us not to worry because he was doing a good job with the wax. Luckily I was on my way out because I don't want to deal with aggravations. One of our criminal hooligan locals told him he was never ever allowed to do that again.
Minilogoflow is a slap and /esg/ crossposter, i am sure of it
I have been slowly loosening my trucks by about a quarter turn maybe once a week. I am getting used to having pretty loose trucks now, it's good shit
>>125516In a few weeks they'll fall off.
>>125478Idk man, I was at Slam City Jam that year and it was clearly Eric. The guy on the team who was literally a skeleton kept claiming it was him, but I think Eric was just skipping meals at the time so he could make the distance. I wonder what even happened to Eric? Last I heard he supposedly got his entire head stuck up some guy's ass but that's just too cartoonish to believe.
>>125472the only thing sketchy about smiths is the hangup factor. they're one of the most stable positions to sit on a rail and imo they're easier than 50s because the way you dip into the ledge makes it easier to get the back truck higher. you're already in a leveraged position for flip in flip out shit too
>>125512I would pretend to give a fuck just to flirt. The only rollerbladers I see at my local are yuppie slampig hoes. They only come by twice a month when they do one of their rideouts.
>>125417Yes you can grind pegless.>>125416>>125426Uk grift sounds like gyppo shit desu. Surpised they didnt also run off with the councils copper after doing a shit job at the skatepark.
>>125525Lol they sound like rollerskaters instead of rollerbladers. The rollerskaters just do weird invert backflip things and are usually chicks and they don't wax up ledges because they can't skate them. The rollerskaters are the ones who wax shit to oblivion
>>125522Yeah back smiths seem a lot sketchier until you learn them and you're just like oh shit this is all it takes? Just dip the nose, lean back and look down the line. A good back smith on in transition is sick as fuck and can be very impressive though, just like a 5-0 grind can be impressive
How do I learn to appreciate female skaters
>>125545You don't need to.
>>125545Look for their delicious tomboy abs.
>>125554fug I forget how good that part was. there was so much good footage this year.

>>125558>>125558who are these people
>>124878somehow I skated the same exact setup for this entire year and it's mint with barely any nose or tail marks. I still bought like 5 new decks anyways lmao. i told myself i cant change decks until i break one skating so they keep accumulating. either boards are really strong now or i don't skate enough. i want to set up a freshie so bad, feels bad man.
>>125516have fun getting wheel bite and speed wobbles
>>125564>I skated the same exact setup for this entire year and it's mint with barely any nose or tail marksSo you don't skate then
>>125512i'd follow them and scrap it off with a knife and then threaten them with it
