Skating big boards is for fags and women. Skating transition on a toothpick is the only real way. Limp dick popping your tricks is cooler than trying hard to pop your board like a goofy ass nigga. Skinny jeans will make a comeback to fleece lames who bought polar big boys.

Athleisure will start to creep in to skate wear, hopefully skating starts becoming less degenerate with such an emphasis on drug use and it will become standard practice to implement gym routines for skate fitness/improvement

There is a vert ramp near me that I assumed would be empty so I decided a couple weeks ago to muster up some balls and attempt to skate vert only to turn up and see 10+ guys on the deck shredding already.. I went to another park kek

What gym routines even help skating any better than actually skating? I do upper body weights just because my arms/shoulders/chest don't get a decent workout while skating.

Noice. I think vert is rad as hell even though it doesn't make for the best videos. The average normie can look at a vert demo and get it.

How would vert ever come back when the streets are more accessible? X-games already dug that grave and nobody gives two shit about that competition.
>>
Who is going to build a vert ramp in this economy
>>
>>125606
Because it brings skateboarding and demos to a wider, non-skater audience. It's going to be in the next olympics. Your average person looks at street skating and only registers that someone is doing some sort of flip trick into some sort of grind, but they can tell the difference between number of spins, broad types of grab, lip tricks, inverts and grinds. Honestly a vert contest looks much better than an SLS style contest these days because the latter has become super fucking boring and homogeneous that they may as well just make those parks a single stair set and a rail at this point.

Plus, idk, maybe there's some nostalgia now.
>>
>>125615
>It's going to be in the next olympics.
oh
>>
>>125615
Skating has at its core been about how it's being done imo. Jimmy's flawless front side airs are so much cooler than a 720 kickflip tailside big spin varial heel out by some ninja.
SLS fell into the same problem all skate comps do. Lance Mountain goes on about it a bit in his nine club. Once you frame something as the end goal, within 10 years you get people trained from birth at that specific goal and it becomes lame and robotic and skating moves on elsewhere.
>>
Heard you pussy niggas were talking all that saying I couldn't skate street or some shit? Well check out my fly out over a cone then bitches
>>
>>125622
>fly out
oh no no no...

I think flexibility and body workouts are definitely the most relevant - cardio too maybe but skating already is cardio imo. I tried pumping in a peanut bowl and after 30 seconds my legs were burning and could definitely benefit from some sort of strength/plyometric training
>>
>>125631
No that just means you need to skate more bowls. And smoke more crack like your favorite pro.
>>
>>125615
I already stated X-Games did what you’re saying and look how popular it is. Vert being in the olympics is no different and it’s inching towards snowboarding territory at that point. There’s an over saturation of street league competition skating sure but complaining about how it doesn’t appeal to you won’t change shit.

flexibilty, balance work and plyometrics imo. strength training probably has benefits once you start maxing out your pop but most people don't know how ollie effectively enough for that to matter more than simply pulling their legs up higher. isolations are probably the least useful thing for general skating albeit they might help mitigate injury (if you aren't a complete tard who fucks themselves up in the gym) developing movement patterns and gymnastic-style work probably has the most direct payoff for actual skating.
>>125602
vert never left anon. it was simply given to snowboarders
because superpipe looks better on camera even though halfpipe runs are more interesting

I'm tired of sucking at skating. I'm in this weird zone where I'm too good to skate with noobs but too shit to really skate with rippers, even though I end up skating with them all the time. I want to become a ripper too but my style sucks and I'm too scared to try tricks most of the time.
>>
>>125671
that's when you need to start going on solo missions anon, to work through your madness if nothing else.
what tricks are you scared of?
>>
>>125671
i feel this bro but prob worse
in my area there are probably like 25 active skaters and you can split that into two clear groups
noobs who don't really try
guys that have been skating for like a decade and a half
so the oldies are pretty stoked on me since i'm a noob who actually tries so i sesh with them a lot
>>
>>125633
That's why I said it's going to make a comeback. Hawk just bought shares in the X-Games and it's changing hands overall because they've let it stagnate and become boring, somehow. They're are a lot of younger vert skaters on the rise too. Obviously I don't think it's going to come out of the gate and get the same viewership as Street League, but I think it'll do well enough that it'll have its niche.

>>125646
>pads look like some fucking dorky pizza bagels shit and ever though snowboarders are decked out in full on bodyarmor their jackets

I've honestly been tempted to try wearing motorcycle jackets and pants to see if it provides enough protection for slams. If they just had caps on the knees I could do a proper slide. I don't mind proper skate pads too much, but yeah, they can look a bit shit and make it harder to tell which skater is which at a glance. And I think most people don't like to wear them because they're a pain to take on and off at a sesh. I have construction/tradesmen pants I wear some of the time and they're pretty damn good for skating all around, so something like that could be an option.

How do you measure wheelbase? Aren't 12 inches equal to a foot? So, wouldn't that make a 14-inch wheelbase a foot and 2 inches? Does that mean you measure from baseplate to baseplate?

>>125680
You won't be able to move properly in motorcycle gear, it's very restrictive compared to normal clothing. You'll also look even goofier than if you were wearing skateboard pads

Vert skating is sick when people do lip tricks and mix it in with handplants and airs imo. But when they start doing kickflip melon 540s and shit i just zone out.
>>
>>125716
Technically boards are measured from the inside bolts but your actual wheelbase is from hanger to hanger which may vary depending on your truck manufacturer.

You can get shit that just looks like jeans or a jacket that has padding inside. It's more subtle and less of a pain in the ass than full vert pads. You don't have to wear a full sports racing suit.
>>
Anyway, my point was that something LIKE bike wear might be a better alternative to full pads. Construction pants are normally stretchy, baggy enough to be comfortable, can have pads slotted into the knees and basically look like cargo pants.
>>
>>125749
>>125750
Just use knee pads. And if the transition is really THAT big a helmet. Stop being so insecure about everything anon.

>>125708
i was pretty much done with 4chan until I found /esg/, these threads are the only thing keeping me on this site which is sad considering how fucking awful these threads usually are.
>>
>>125748
You can measure to the bolts as well, they are in the same place as the holes. The distance between the baseplates is not the same measurement. Yes axle to axle is technically the true wheelbase but that is not going to be relevant to any board dimensions you see online.
>>
>>125671
>>125723
Hard to believe that more advanced skaters wouldn't be stoked on skating with you if you can do all those tricks you mentioned and more consistently on 6ft tranny, that would place you well on your way to skating bigger stuff. How long have you been skating if you don't mind me asking?
>>
>>125758
I skated when i was a teenager and was pretty good, then stopped for a long time, now i'm 28 and I've been back into it for about 9 months.

Also the local advanced guys are doing like airs 4ft above coping and inverts in big transition and shit like that, the level of skating here is insane.

And i shouldn't say i'm too good to skate with noobs, that sounds arrogant, i like skating with anybody that is friendly and positive.

I met this cool guy at the skatepark over the weekend. He was telling me that in his hometown in Michoacan he used to have a lot of friends and they would all skate/bmx/rollerblade together and listen to punk. Sounded like it would be so wholesome, no one giving a fuck about being too cool and everyone just having fun together. But then the cartels became more prominent and a lot of his friends got hooked on meth and cartel members would intimidate him and his friends a lot with guns so he moved to california. I taught him how to do a fly out LOL

/biz/, /pol/ and here. Clean your rooms.
>>
>>125723
this is one area where i think it's okay to be kind of a bitch. get really comfortable buttsliding on big tranny, one of the advantages of big shit is that you have way more time to react . beyond that, you already have those tricks anon you just need to learn how to ride so don't even worry about tricks for a while just cruise until the basics feel completely natural at 10ft+. another thing you can do is try skating the small tranny with more speed since speed is going to be the main difference when you go bigger.
>>
Why are you fags always talking about pads? Literally everytime I check these threads for over a year it's always the same fucking conversation about pads going on?
>>
>>125784
When you're a grown man wearing shorts you need to wear pads. It's a tranny thing. Tranny skating I mean.
>>
>>125779
agree'd, crazy pop and stair skating has been trite for a minute now. it's the easiest and most boring way to skate street. it requires no real skill or technical ability. you only have to be dumb enough to do it. it's not impressive in the slightest and is actually kind of cringe if that's all you can do. I find it very childish to skate that way as an adult. Like why are you 30+ unironically skating more than an 8 stair lmao grow up.

90a. Indy sells replacement 88a and 78a bushings if you want. You can also remove the bottom washer and/or superglue the nut to the kingpin if you want to ride looser.

Unless someone knows otherwise I don't think they are. the construction is visually different than reds because the minilogo bearings have shields on both sides. They are very good though, not knocking them.

You just described Los Angeles in the early nineties. We werent on that gay jonah hill shit hanging out at a skate shop without actually skating.

>>
>>125813
Yes and apparently like 90% of bearings that are in the $10-20 range are all made by the same chink company and are all probably abec 1 because china has no obligation to actually follow abec guidelines and they can just write whatever they want on their bearings.

That's why I just pop the shields and spray my bearings with wd40 whenever I want to skate lmao. Right now I am riding spitfire burners, the shittest bearings I have ever rode

its like a lot of you guys dont understand how skateboarding actually works or anything. you just take words like style or technical and make them mean whatever you want them to.

Are you guys planning on getting anything for black friday? I desperately need a new deck, ideally Ill get 2 for less than 80 dollars. Getting some new indys on sale would be tight even if I dont need them right now. No chance green dragon wheels will be on sale. Ussually end up buying 3 pairs of shoes from etnies or emerica but I dont really need them that bad this time.

Honestly it should either be tj Roger's or spanky and its obvious. If it goes to tyshawn then fuck soty I'll never pay attention to that shit ever agin

Louie had a good year but it's nothing compared to putting out 2 banger full length parts when you're 38, or beating cancer and putting out a banger part in the same year.

if it goes to anyone on baker it should go to t funk

I've heard this from a couple of other people so it's not just me, but Indy bushing are fucking awful for some reason. Even the hardest grade ones fall to shit after a few days use. I've gone through two black sets and a yellow set without even tightening them too much (at most a single thread above the nut). They either wind up buckling entirely or, if it's a barrel shaped one, mashing out at the edge and getting cut up by the washer.

I switched to Bones and they've all held up MUCH better.

>>125885

I keep seeing people mentioning Louie in the SOTY race but what actual “new” footage did he put out besides a spitfire part full of throwaway footage and that weekend clip in Santa Barbara? Dudes incredibly talented and has great style but nobody else is matching T-Funk/Tyshawn/or the underdog Jeff Carlyle IMO. These three dudes have been going off the entire year putting out footage that is actually worth the SOTY praise. Lots of great shit coming out but these three are a mile a head of other people out rn

Fuck off Joa. Your "apology" video was also a big bag of cope, floating the idea that it was all a big ruse from Tyshawn to get people to do promotional work for him instead of just saying you were flat out wrong and that he did clear the table. Yiff in hell.
>>
>>125970
GH made a good point in that clip analysis and I don't think he would've done the video if he didn't think Tyshawn was capable of publishing a second angle but if you think anyone actually believes Tyshawn put that out to get GH to make a video you've been on the internet too long

Tell GH that.
>but he said he doesn't believe that was the case after going on about it for 2 minutes
Then why say it at all? All he had to do was a 10 second video saying "oops, I was proven totally wrong, sorry, my bad, doesn't even matter what that original angle looks like now, no arguments left to make"

Why are you guys obsessed with swiss? They're literally a meme. Snake oil. You don't need anything more than reds. And I say that so you support a skate brand. Realistically you can just get bearings from a hardware store. It's the same thing.

Black friday and I might actually splurge

Yeah retards do. You can, but you should just stick to 8.25, or get new trucks.
>>
>>126131
Most of the older skaters i roll with buy swiss and they like them. Seems to me that they are maybe slightly better than regular bearings but not worth paying triple the price. The older guys probably just have the expendable cash to throw at swiss bearings.

Also if you are skating street it's probably less important than if you are skating a bowl. When you skate a bowl with shitty bearings it really sucks because you have to work twice as hard to get speed and then you have less energy to actually do tricks.
>>

I've been skating Super Reds for probably 8 months in London (dirty and wet as fuck), cleaned them once or twice, No issues so far. I'd be tempted to try Swiss some time because I've rusted bearings out plenty, but it's a steep price for something that I'm not sure is worth it.

I have so much love and respect for Tony Hawk. I read his autobiography 20 years ago as a kid and how he was bullied etc coming up. That gave me the confidence to stay true to myself as a weird autistic skater kid and stuck with me ever since. But he was so stupid in his recovery that it was painful to watch. Especially after I just came off a long injury where I made a lot of the mistakes he did.

Vibed. What is this new word? Is it when you misinterpret the language of someone else? Because if you never cared about what other people are doing, or saying, then it's impossible to get Vibed. Unless my definition is incorrect.

I went to the skatepark today. Nobody was there. So I was not Vibed. So because I was not seen or heard, and because I could not see or hear anyone else. It was impossible to experience vibes.

It was peaceful.

Fell face first into a fence today after about 5 minutes of skating. Cut my eyebrow open. It's always the dumb shit that gets me injured.

I know this makes me a bad person but i can't fuck with watching disabled people skate. Like thrasher just put out that part of the midget skating and it just makes me uncomfortable. There's a local park i sometimes go to and one of the dudes who skates there has that condition where your torso is like really small and you have no neck and he is actually pretty good at skating but I don't like watching him skate because it makes me uncomfortable.

I wish I could get pleated pants like that. He's also spitting facts too.
>>
>>126464
Why?
>>
>>126473
It makes me uncomfortable and i'm not sure why. Almost like an instinctual reaction from my ancestors who would have left them to die on mountains as babies
>>
>>126474
It's not uncommon.
>>
>>126479
what's not uncommon?
>>
>>126474
So all people who can't walk are babies? Okay
>>
>>126474
Our ancestors took care of the disabled and injured, but okay. I think that's a weird reaction to have. I can get looking at someone who is particularly disabled and skating and getting worried that they're going to REALLY hurt themselves, but if they're able to actually shred then they obviously have it figured out.

What about people with, idk, more aesthetic disabilities like Lefty or those blind guys? Do they freak you out too?
>>
>>126486
Blind people don't make me uncomfortable, but Lefty definitely does.
>>
>>126464
wee man from jackass desensitized me to midgets. It’s the paraplegics I feel sad watching.

>Our ancestors took care of the disabled and injured
Whose ancestors? I am referring to europeans. Before modern medicine it was probably more humane to just let them die than it was to keep them alive
>>

>aesthetic disabilities
People who wear shorts or bitch niggas with no swag?

Mhmm you tell me sista! Back in wakanda we cured all disabilities.

was skating with the local ripper today and i kept not committing to a certain trick and he kept pushing me to do it and after like 20 tries of me not really committing i felt like he was almost disgusted in me

why does skating prefab parks as an adult feel so humiliating? they are fun but they feel like a space for children and tweens.

Why does skating prefab parks as an adult feel so rewarding and challenging? They are fun but they feel like a gym for anyone who needs it.
>>
>>126498
I feel like this everytime I skate around people you can tell I’ve been skating for years cause I’m comfy on my board, I always look like I’m gearing up to do something big and it’ll be like the weakest Ollie ever kek

I'm that guy. That one time I drove 2.5 hours to land a fs heel on a 3 stair. Then I drove 1.5 hours to ollie into the deep end of a pool. Then 3 hours to get some bitches but more importantly do a slappy bs noseslide on this baby down ledge. Then I drove 5 hours back home to post on 4chan.

>>125579
tips on commitment? anyone.
>>
>>126537
bro i WISH i had anything to say. not committing is the single biggest issue that keeps me from turning into an actual good skateboarder
>>
>>126537
Stop being a pussy is the #1 tip, but also don't force yourself to do tricks you don't understand.
>>
>>126537
You are old as fuck. No one gives a fuck. Send your 3 stair incel.
>>
>>126542
>also don't force yourself to do tricks you don't understand
good tip sometimes i get ahead of myself cause i land a trick before on accident and think i can do it but don't understand it at all
>>126546
what? i want to learn ledge tricks, not skate stairs
>>
>>126537
stop thinking and stop being so nervous. this is why so many pros smoke crack. its not a meme.
>>
>>126548
a lot of my friends smoke weed during the sesh and skate perfectly fine if not better...not sure if that would help me commit but i may give it a try

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/disabled-neanderthal-survived-into-old-age-because-he-was-looked-after-vcwfjp06f#:~:text=Often%20dismissed%20as%20primitive%20brutes,the%20help%20of%20other%20Neanderthals.

>Often dismissed as primitive brutes, Neanderthals could be altruistic and social, a study suggests. Analysis of the 50,000-year-old remains of a severely disabled one, named Shanidar 1, shows that he survived into old age thanks to the help of other Neanderthals.

>Shanidar 1 was deaf, blind, missing his right arm from the elbow and had a severe limp. His remains were found at the Shanidar Cave in Iraqi Kurdistan in 1957 but a new analysis has just been published in the journal Plos One.

There are multiple skeletons of old humans and hominids that showcased disabilities and they weren't always rich. Living to old age means their community took care of them. If a member of your family or a close friend was disabled, you'd naturally want to take care of them. The only times people think it's better for society that they are left to die or are just killed outright are when nobody has any sort of bond to them (eg; some government apparatus).

Anyway, skating is full of older guys who fucked themselves up to the point they can't skate any more or can only skate to a reduced degree and I think it'd be super shitty to leave them behind, so I don't think it's any more justified to leave someone born with a disability behind.

Nyjhosis is a serious illness, you shouldn't make fun of it.

Learn every single thing you can that relates to a trick so that the scary unknown factor that makes you not commit is as small as possible.

>want to drop in
>too scared
>learn to pump on the ramp
>ride it fakie
>do this until you're reaching the top of the ramp where your wheels will connect once you actually put your board down
>ride different ramps with different transitions and materials so you can adjust for each one without thinking
>ride your skateboard around fast, learn how to run out
>"drop in" on smaller shit like curbs, small hills, banks, etc
>practice all of your pivots and manuals so you can get in and out of those poses without thinking
>now dropping in is a fraction of a second where your front two wheels need to touch the ramp

Same for any kind of trick really. You do the stuff you're familiar and comfortable with but try to expand it out to be faster, bigger, etc. And then master all the non-trick skills like cavemans, riding switch/fakie, throwdowns, riding off curbs, that thing where you put the board upside down with your feet underneath and flip it and jump on top at the same time. Do the tricks you already have on lock and see if there's one similar to the new one you're trying to land.


Then lastly you should try filming yourself in case there's some motion you're doing that's fucking you up without realising. It only clicked to me the other day that I was throwing my shoulder around too early to get properly locked into a stall I was trying even though I was technically doing the correction steps. I would have figured that out sooner if I had someone film me.

practice building up to the trick you want to do, and then you'll be more confident to do it. Don't jump into the trick right away, make sure you're in the zone first and then send it
>>
I put bones bushings on my indy trucks and they feel amazing. Definitely lowered the truck height too.
>>
>>126537
The only thing that works for me is doing the trick on progressively bigger ramps, like starting on a 2ft quarterpipe, then 3ft, 4ft, and so on. For ledges it could be starting at curbs and working your way up. It usually means driving around to a lot of different spots if your local isn't very varied but yeah this is the only thing that works for me.
>>
>>126644
I love the how anime and films think that skating somehow makes you faster and more mobile in a foot chase when there are hundreds of videos skaters picking up their boards and running from security guards.

Looks fuckin' cool though: https://youtu.be/9_JCv4tl8Fo?t=119

Imagine being chased by someone and doing a fucking BS nose grind to fakie 50 down a narrow handrail instead of just running down the steps.

Reminds me of that video from a few years ago

>Few lads skating at night
>Car drives by
>Not sure what happens but the "chico locos" get out the car and start dabbing on the skaters
>Bit of a fight breaks out
>One of the Mexcians pulls out a gun and threatens to shoot them
>One of the skaters hits him with his board and he drops the gun
>Skate picks the gun up
>Mexicans start begging for their lives

Equal parts disturbing and top kek.
I'm sure there's a really awkward part when the skater has the gun and is trying to tell them to leave and be intimidating but he's only about 14 so it doesn't really work too well.
