Some damn fine videos dropped this past few weeks.https://youtu.be/R4000eoPpGEhttps://youtu.be/zT74FIOILskhttps://youtu.be/IeJjFzpINOAhttps://youtu.be/rD_Bhy-npMMhttps://youtu.be/2u0ksx1CrEAhttps://youtu.be/IFCMymFSef4?list=LL&t=568Love that mall video in particular. Why the fuck aren't there more dead mall skate videos anyway? They all seem like they're prime skate spots.Old thread: >>134858
>>137206>https://youtu.be/2u0ksx1CrEAthis is really god stuff
>>137206New Leo vid is pretty good too:https://youtu.be/1KTSxYb6hcYCouldn't watch that 'Japanese Skate Rat' Lenz III video due to the earrape soundtrack but the Ryuhei part was great:https://youtu.be/EWhNG1K5YRQ
>>137212Aw man, I loved that soundtrack. Been listening to that band's music thanks to it.
post your deck
I fucked up my knee ladshopefully I'll be able to skate when summer rolls around..it's so hard to cope right now. I can't believe the europoster put this bad energy on me
>>137216Great graphic, but man I can't stand the guy. Actually makes me not want to skate his shit any more.
>>137217If you were making fun of me at any point then I told you it's karma.
>>137206what height trucks for 59mm wheels?
I bought an 8.6" deck and 149 indie trucks like a retard when i first got into skating and realized its way too big. would it be retarded to get like an 8" or 8.25" deck and use it with the same 149 indie trucks or would it cause problems?
>DIY has no lights>it's dark outside when i go into work and when i get off of work
>>137212Incredible footage on both parts >>137263Those trucks would be fine on an 8.25. Some skaters like their trucks to be a hair wider than the board. on an 8 inch deck they're reaching too wide territory
>>137206>no kooksI feel personally attacked
>>137360this is why skateboarding really needs to be gatekept from the corporate world. pro skaters need to form a union or something too, not getting paid for weeks/months is just unacceptable on top of nobody having healthcare.
>>137389ur an idiot> gatekept from the corporate world> form a union > healthcare
>>137389Imagine your boss just shrugging their shoulders and letting you know they won't pay you this month
>>137392lmao good bait, cant believe most americans are actually that dumb
>>137394ive been lucky enough for the past few years where all my bosses are at the job with me so if/when something happened I could go right to their desk/office. cant imagine being a broke ass dude being told over the phone by some suit in a huge office building hundreds of miles away that I wouldnt be getting paid for who knows how long while the company rakes in money. makes my blood boil just thinking about it
>>137389>>137397There are so many stories of skate companies being managed like total shit, if not being outright scams where the riders get fucked. You'd think at least things getting more corporate would mean better business practice.
pro skaters should have real jobs aside from being pro skaters, if they had to do this we wouldnt have so many faggot losers in skate culture
>sell your brand to corporation>cry when they do corporate shitWhat did they expect? Free money?
orbs on ssense are 15 cad now. already ordered my decks but i might buy some when another decent deck falls in the mid 30s range.
hitting 30 this summer. In my early middle age crisis decided to try to pick up skateboarding again. Ordered parts last week from skate shop and today got a red top in mail.Broken knee, wrist or a hip? How dead am I?
>>137447kook faggot>>137414well if you dont pay your riders then they cant afford lawyers to sue you. thats business babyy
>>137360 damn should have just waited for this instead of trying to find out what happened which just led me to SL*P. they are just trying to cancel enjoi over old ads and jokes they made. still think jenkem is just a wannabe vice and vice is absolute scum
>>137467>well if you dont pay your riders then they cant afford lawyers to sue youlmaooo the skate industry is so scummy
>>137469for every person complaining about bad lazy jokes theres 2 posters telling them to stop being so lame and offended.
how fucked has skateboarding become?One of the most popular fucking skateboard faggots is a furry. Hes famous for talking shit and being a furry faggot. How do kids see this as okay? Is it just all child fans who dont know better?? who the fuck watches that boney faggot talk and cry?? i see you homosexual dick suckers dick ride him so much like ooh i just listened to his 1hour fucking video talking about other men. inb4 he gets arrested for child rape in the next 2 years topskateboarding youtubers' only fans are children you just cant let a grown ass man whos attected to animals and fursuits be around children. Those are not normal urges and lead to other worse acts of lust. >https://youtu.be/hUfKPQXRepMFucking fur faggot is the face of skateboarding on youtube. how fucking sad. Least the trasher satanic fags dont try to push furry shit on me.
>>137512I don't disagree. I don't care for youtube personality friend simulators, and certainly not that goon.
>>137512Pretty sure that post is ironic.
Sort of cringe but does anyone have any input on routinely skating transition if I am moving to Manhattan? Ill be working a fairly intensive job in midtown and im wondering if it would be possible to make it out to a miniramp or just a quarterpipe each day. Would be sick if anyone knows of any jersey barrier DIYs in the area.
>>137535Why don't you just move to a good city instead of shithattan? Yes I'm a third worlder talking shit, but you will effectively become one too if you live in a place like that.
>>137548might not have a choice in the matter but i may end up moving somewhere else instead
>>137550Are you not your own man?
>>137552It's kind of up to where my job takes me friend
>>137553Can't you do the same job but in like Wyoming or something?
>>137554yeah but I don't really have a chance of going there right now
>>137554why the fuck would anyone who skates want to fucking live in Wyoming?
>>137554>WyomingLol this fucking guy
>>137517okay soat what point does the irony stop?why does his pc have more than 1 fur fag games?so this shit talking persona is okay with promoting being a furry as long as its "ironic"oh i only wanan fuck animals as "ironic"its not normal my guy.its mulsim teir lol
>>137464I picked it up around the same time. Broke my elbow (first break of my life) about 3 months in from falling in a stupid way. Wear your pads.
>>137512Shut the fuck up Berra, your body thetans are showing.
Won one of these last night. TEN inches wide. I already have some nice soft wheels and bearings so I intend on using it as a pooly cruisy thing. Gonna get some rails for it, but now I need to figure out what trucks to go for.Any suggestions?
>>137589Ace or Indy
>>137582i didn't think it was that funny until i saw how mad you are about it lmao
>>137589If you're doing skatepark bowls I would recommend you not using soft cruiser wheels. You'll go slow as fuck around the bowl
>>137512>>137582the fact that a faggot cringe youtuber is seen as the voice of authority in skateboarding means its 100% over and all you can do is ignore it and not associate with other skaters unless they are your very close friends. its not worth it, especially if they are zoomers
>>137604you are so fucking gay and associate with nobody because people can smell you from across the park lol
137606keep feeding me (you)s muttoid bitch
Im better at skating and more stylish than anyone in this thread but I don't even skate anymore because it is gay and pointless
>>137567>>137569What's wrong with Wyoming???
>>137617You can't answer...
I love skateboarding bros. Just got back from my first session after breaking my foot a few months back. Nothing better then getting back on the board.
>>137610so you can do an ollie?nice
>>137615Wyoming is a beautiful scenic state. Nothing is really wrong with it. But beautiful and scenic also means no where to skateboard
>>137625Streets don't exist in Wyoming? Retarded take.
>>137629>>137615this is fucking hilarious
>>137595>>137638Cheers. I'll give Ace a go seeing how I have Indy's on my usual board.>>137602Eh, I just happen to have a set of soft wheels so I'll be using them. There's actually a really old crusty as fuck park called Rom I want to have a couple of sessions at and soft wheels are a must there. I'd also like to use it for filming so they'll be handy there too.
>>137641Don't you ever fucking "eh" at me again, bro.
>>137650Eh, what you gonna do about it, cunt?
all my friends are this 1st rule tho,,,
>>137621Nice one man. Getting the dust off after an injury is the best.
>>137606least he can shower. can a furry unfuck an animal?? why are you so adament in defending your boyfurfag freind?? i wonder what would happen if 10years ago a boney dude who dresses up as animals for sexual pleasure showed up to a skatepark. in todays world all the children will run up to him be like yoo i saw you on youtubefucking zoomers
>>137599yea cause dudes who are upset at animal fuckers is so funnyhahahgo back to /LGBT
>>137698>>137701post a clip nerd
So anyway back to more important matters, I usually skate Thunders right. My old ones were done so I tried Indies for a while. They were ok.BUT TODAYI finally got some new Thunders set up. Felt back at home. We are back Thunder bros.
>>137712You should have tried ventures.
>>137715I have. The lows don't maneuver well, the high Ventures are interesting but they are very stable, unless you start swapping bushing/washers. That inherent stability is a good thing I should mention. It's just thatThunders have the SWERVE
>>137716Thunders suck ass and are represented by men who suck man ass.
>>137718this nigga still mad about furries
>>137719Who said anything about furries, furrybrain?
>>137721you did poo breath. i bet you have one of those weird furry costume things. you put it on and wear it dont you
>>137712Tempted to get Thunders if my locals don't have Aces. Definitely want something that can turn well for carving shit.
>>137722>you didShow me where.
Its going to be a good weekend for skateboarding socal bros
I'm going to the park on Saturday morning you guys can come if you want.
>>137712I got thunders as my first trucks purely because I thought the name and logo were cool. I probably won't ever switch to anything else. Same reason I got spits over bones for wheels and will probably never change those either.
>>137803Don't call them "spits" ever again.
Just bought a board after quitting back in '03. I'm 32 now. Any other boomers here? Also, what are some good trick tip channels. I'm currently watching SKATE HACKS. Any other good ones?
>>137512It's a joke making fun of furries faggot. That's the entire point. Either you really have never once used the English speaking internet or you're just retarded.
>>137629unironically yeah mostly
>>137567Pretty sure there's actually some big tranny parks in wyoming because i've seen them in anti hero vids but i also think it snows half the year there, better off just living in oregon if you want those sort of parks without the snow>>137589Indy 215s>>137832I'm late 20s and there are a few other people here who are around this age or early 30s
>2 weeks off between traveling and being sick as fuck>back to my local for a Friday seshnot even remotely rusty>actually feeling braver than normal>get some of my tricks better than ever>a couple tricks I normally avoid also work>try out 2 new tricks>make both of them>take a weird slam to my knee, don't care>mfw>>13783231 here, started back almost 2 years ago.Depending on what you want to do, here are some of my favourite trick tip channels.Street tricks: https://www.youtube.com/@VLSkateOldschool tricks: https://www.youtube.com/@TheRaddiiZoneFreestyle tricks (think this guy may be the best because he actually takes time to talk about momentum and weight and stance and whatnot. Lots of handy shit even if you don't like freestyle): https://www.youtube.com/@FreestyleTricktipsTransition/standard miniramp stuff (more of a blog than a trick tip channel and super cringe, but he's in his 40s and he's good at breaking down his problems as he works on tricks): https://www.youtube.com/@JonBishopSkate

Hey Florida posters. I was at the shop today and heard the Plan B team is going through Orlando, Jupiter and Miami tomorrow I think. This Friday they'll go to Lot 11.
fuck all of you skaterfags
>>138042based, i wish i had a gf like her

Ollie up my first Euro gap today. I this moment, I am euphoric.>>138110>>138042>>138082She's hot in a Fairuza Balk in "The Craft" kind of way: terrifying and might very well knife you, but all the hotter for it.>>138163FUCKING LEGEND. The only copies I've seen online were people trying to flip it for £150+.
>>138163Fuck them then.
New skate waifu in the Foundation video, her part starts a couple of minutes inhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnhIiMBdK_c
>>138196Foundation has really been killing it the last couple of years. I was bummed about the Aidan Campbell situation and Cotie Robinson/John Clemmons bailing out for Darkroom, but they've got such a solid team with a great direction going on right now. might have to pick up a board when I go skate again. I actually like whatever wood Tum Yeto used an their flat shapes are really wonderful if thats your style.
>>138206>Aidan Campbellobviously mean Cole Wilson.also forgot to mention that first girl is insanely cute.
>>138196>baby holding pitbull at start of videoNope
>>138196Holy FUCK i havent heard the song used for that chick's part in a minute. Plays pretty for baby by Saosin. Brings back memories of high school goth chicks (legit ones, not zoomer fake goths). She's cute and she's even wearing an iron cross t shirt. based as fuck
I think everyone just fell in love with that Tania girl
>>138256Very cute with a nice feel good part and her personal and skate style don’t seem very forced, compared to someone like Maite. Front shove stair disaster was awesome even if she wasn’t a chick
>>138196She has some good titties on her too.
She kinda looks like the food truck girl
>>137512berrics workers have typed this post
Jamie Thomas is such a little bitch.

I just started Skateboarding again recently. Only trick I can do is ollie. I want to learn to skate the bowl at my local park because it seems like the most fun. Are there any key skills to learn beforehand or should I just go for it?
>>138503learn how to fall properly on tranny
>>138452Are you 12? Or autistic?Or both?
>>138503If you're going to skate an actual bowl this is the only time I would recommend knee pads.
filthy dumbsimp scum
>>138493Finished watching it tonight. It's fucking sick. Kinda wish I hadn't seen so much of it on Thrasher already, but the first half (where most of the "new" sections are) is amazingly edited.I hate to be such a weeb, but Japanese street skaters are just different. Their trick bags and obstacles are all weird as fuck and they make old school tricks look techy as fuck. I'm going for the first time in November and I really hope I can squeeze in a few days to skate Tokyo and Osaka.>>138503What the other guys said; learn how to fall/kneeslide. Other than that, just focus on pumping and carving in every direction for now. There's not a lot to say about it if you already know how to pump up and down a halfpipe, it just takes a while to develop the sense for it.
>>138452>Feisar ship from WipeoutJesus what a reference. Skaters should dress like that/Jet Set Radio characters.
best brands for a kissless virg?
>>138513I'd be ok with this.
>>138509>>138511Thanks fellas. Ill pick up some pads and a helmet for the next time I go to the park.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_b9mtl0YdJwgood trick tip channel I found. only 2k subs, you may not have seen it before.
>>138521>helmetliterally nobody suggested you do this
>>138526My mom told me I have to wear a helmet
>>138522hehe anon is this yours? well either way he seems nice, I'll watch a few.
>>138528Nope, not him, just got recommended to me in my youtube feed.
>>138526I'm suggesting it now. If you're going to skate bowls and wear pads, it only makes sense to wear a helmet too.
unironically mar sure you get a certified helmet. those rat shit companies sell non certified helmets as well, those things can not take any impact at all. if and when you do eat shit, make sure you don't break your head. the last thing posters in these threads need is more brain damage.
I've had two helmets: a standard Protec one and a Triple 8 Sweatsaver. The Protec one eventually just fell apart despite not taking any real impacts (the glue holding the outer shell to the foam inner just disintegrated) and was mostly a piece of ill fitting shit. The Triple 8 has been MUCH better so far. Feels way sturdier, is better padded and comes with a swappable pad so you can adjust to your head size. Definitely wish I'd saved my money and just got this one first.
>>138526When I'm doing new shit the least I can do is wear a helmet
It ain't a real grind unless it's on concrete brother.
was just browsing Theories' webstoredo you all think this hat would help me lose my virginity?

florida posters I am driving down to Lot 11 rn
I was going for fastest lap on the pump track and somehow I ended stabbing the board's tail on my back leg quadriceps, rip pants and big scratch, bitch is old and sharp.
>>138627Ok I went to see a Plan B demo in Miami. I don't really like the company but it was a nice day out, all of the team was really chill. It was neat. Those guys are really good. Pat Duffy was skating around too, that was cool to see. I got a big poster signed by everyone lmao. HOWEVER John Dilorenzo was also there, just skating around off to the side. He stole the show. His style is so sick, you guys have to see him somehow, his kickflips are insane in person. Sorry no pictures this time, I was too busy having fun.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Hg8ietmKgYNew eastern yurop video.
>>138666How was the vibe? Feels like many skate fans are really stiff and seriuos nowadays.
>>138731It was very relaxed. A lot of people went to the other side of the park and kept skating, they ignored the demo side of things entirely lol. I've mentioned this before but for all of the posters that haven't been to a demo before, you should go. It's a lot of fun.
Ollie up a manny pad for the first time today. Was a fucking battle. Found going slow and making up the distance in air time worked better than going at speed. So fucking tired.>>138668I don't have a bluray drive so I won't be uploading mine.
Weddle = Fascism, big-corpo big-brother bullshitMute = Natural and free, organic, purity via traditionYou think Japanese people give a shit they have a grab named after their land? Why would the vocally disabled?
>>138670Nice. I can never get over how god damn crusty it is over there. It's not just the fact everything is old and falling apart due to lack of funding, but the shift in seasons makes even the "new" bricks and concrete super rough and displaced. It's no joke to skate that.
>>138775I have no idea what you're trying to ask. I don't even know what the hell you're talking about.
kader of baker
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1woF-AQuhtINew Deedz part on Jenkem.
>>138867what the fuck
how do people smoke weed and skate? I can't even push my board if im even slightly stoned
>>138775if they had a problem with mute why didn't they ever say anything about it?
>>138975I can't either. My legs feel like jello. I always need to lie down. One of the park locals I'm friends with occasionally eats mushrooms before he skates. Imagine some lanky dude blasting waist high ollies with the classic giant pupils. I have no idea what he is seeing.
>>138856One Rowan > three Kaders
>>138990what if Kader was just a huge retard all along?
>>138975Youre supposed to drink and skate, then smoke after the sesh
Hey Venturabro... i'm supposed to be taking the senpai camping at Emma Wood beach some time soon. I'm not 100 percent sure if i'll have time to skateboard but i might squeeze in a morning session. I don't want to drive more than 15 minutes or so from where we'll be. It looks like i don't have a ton of great options. Is Hobert my best choice?Here's a bad boardslide and a tiny ollie
>>138856>ofdumb disgusting slapfaggot cuck
>>139064you would have to be a slap user to know that
>>139064Bro why are you talking like that? What kind of person even begins to type something like that out? I know you're still doing your angry poster gimmick but you need to look at yourself.
>>139059Hey man if I were coming to the beach and I didn't want to drive more than 15 mins away from the campground I probably wouldn't even bother skating. West park has the best obstacles - it has a flat bar, and a manual pad. Both obstacles have shitty run-ups and the rest of the park is fucked to skate. Also West park is the closest one to Emma Wood. All 3 skateparks in Ventura are similarly designed and they are all pretty worthless.Ojai is 25 mins away and super fun. That's where I usually skate. It's also a nice place to take your lady for shopping/food if she's into that kinda thing.Carpenteria skatepark is in the process of being built and would only be about 10 mins away from you... but all this rain is stopping them from being able to pour the concrete. Oh well, hopefully when you come to the beach in summer it'll be done and we can have some sessions there. It's going to be a sick park.Regardless if you want to meet up for a quick skate at West park or Ojai (if you can make the drive) let me know and I'll come and hang out.
>>139074yeah i was seeing them all online and they all have that same weird small circle of a park thing going.The main reason for the time limit is because the kids will be with us plus wife's pregnant again so i can't leave her alone out there for too long . I guess I can just enjoy some breakfast on the beach. i'll have to find time to make the trip to just skate though, i've talked to my brother about Ojai before so its already something i've planned on doing- i'll keep you posted on when
>>139059Fat fuck still hasn't learned how to make a webm.
>>139084Shit. I keep forgetting to resize it.
Ive been trying to kickflip for months now, actually feels impossible at this point.
>>139092Firstly, do not give up anon. Never. It happens. Kickflips are an especially pesky trick.Secondly, if you film yourself you will be able to study your technique. What will usually happen is like this, if your front foot is not catching the board or landing underneath, then the problem is your flicking technique. If only your back foot is not getting on the board, then this is a matter of pure commitment, and actually jumping up and with the board to land on top of it. I believe in you anon.
>>139103I can flip the board and catch it with my back foot fairly consistently. My front foot will flick the board and just rocket to the ground immediately. I feel like i flick out but i guess not enough. I will try to film myself. Thank you anon
>>139104Slice through your nose with your toes. Imagine a line going across your board. Do not flick down, visualize yourself doing a ninja kick.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dODnfBx_eLQ
Nora niggas get in here
>>137206whats a good starter skateboard to get? im 23 and idk if its too late but i rly wanna learn how to skate since my eyesight and balance was fucked as a kid but its a lot better now as an adult
8.25 size deck, independent trucks size 144, spitfire classic wheels size 54, bones reds bearings. Black grip tape, don't get no colorful shit. You can get all this shit on skatewarehouse or you can go to your local skate store or Zumiez if you have one. Should cost you between $150 and $200.
>>139117Meant for >>139115
>>139117>8.25 size deck, independent trucks sizeThis is my current set up and I hate it. I'm going back to lower trucks and a wider board.
I injured my ankle 4 days ago and i was wondering if it's okay to skate again or if i should wait a few more day. I'm still a beginner so i was trying to sw heelflip and after 4 tries of the board flipping perfectly and not committing I went all in and the board landed primo, my left heel landed on the wheel then slipped and my toe fell into the ground. I read online that stage 1 ankle sprains( which is what I assume i have, but i have not seen a doctor) take 1-2 weeks to heal but mine is almost fine, It only hurts slightly when I flick my ankle inwards as fast as i can, as of yesterday my foot is still slightly swollen but i can feel and the bones underneath the skin now .
>>139121you broke that shit if its swelling. a sprain would swell for 1-2 days then bruise if its bad.
>>139084wait a sec the size is right, what's wrong with it?
>>139121No don't skate yet. Hold on a few more days or else you could make it worse.
>>139121you probably can skate it fine if you wait til the weekend to skate. The only thing is that if you land a little wrong on that same ankle , it will hurt probably just as bad as it did before. This is what i deal with.you probably should wait til your shit is fully healed. But if you're like me and are ok with "its good enough" then you're going to keep feeling it in your ankle
>>139121Grades are like autism. It's just a scale with no real accuracy. Check out this vid -https://youtu.be/RpqncGpxuTAJust come back when you feel comfy to. Ease into it. When you are compensating for a weak ankle you're more likely to hurt another joint.>>139127I sprained my ankle bad (tore ligaments) and it stayed swelled for like 5 weeks.
>>139161I'll wait until friday or saturday, sorry to hear that you have to deal with those ankle injuries.>>139163Thanks anon , really insightful video
snowskating is really fun bros.i'm having fun
I wish I could skate without drinkingI wish I could chill without drinkingI wish I could do anything without drinking
dumb noob question - when you ollie into a grind or stall or whatever, let's say 5050 for example, do you do exactly the same kind of motions you would if you were to just pop one on flat or going over something etc. or is it slightly different? I want to try to ollie into a 5050 or boardslide, but I feel like it's going to be impossible to land in a grind and keep my balance. Not sure if that's just a confidence thing or whether I just need to get better ollies or what.
>>139215you do a regular ollie but you gotta also shift your shit to the ledge so you can get on and balance it out. Its not a super hard trick or anything. I would say you wouldn't even need big ollies down you just need to have very good control of the ollies you do have. If your ollies are fucked and uneven and your feet come off the board, work on those things first.
>>137206What wheels do you guys ride on real rough pavement on non cruiser boards? was looking at some bones atf filmers but worried theyd be too soft for tricks, but getting real sick of the shitty pavement around where i live.
>>139262Where have you been? They made Bones Dragon wheels exactly for that.
>>139215You pretty much do them like normal and anticipate the shift in weight with your upper body (so you lean a little bit forward for a grind or slide so that you do whip out backwards). That's assuming you land your usual ollies with equal pressure on either side and don't land too off centre. Probably best to start off with little 5050 stalls onto curbs then work up to little grinds.
>>139264>so that you *don't whip out backwards
>>137261just get some hi trucks or some risers if youre worried about wheel bite, can be a headache searching for specific measurements of trucks, especially with companies not being standardized in height with what high or low trucks even are.
will i die putting two truck cup washers under the bushing?
>>139308Why would you even do this?
>>139309the bushings i got are too soft and tightening the nut didnt help
>>139310Just get firmer bushings
we skating tomorrow bros?
>>139317Not me. Not tomorrow. Not ever again. I want to die. I'm about to cry.
>>139320i feel for you ACLfagthat shit really sucks
>>138060what's gifted hater up to these days? He still stirring up shit?
>>138557fucking sick broi dont skate with pads because i dont know how to fall on them but i have more than enough speed and have accidentally slashed the pool coping but its pretty sketchy and it requires lots of speed and the moment of lightfootedness where the board is just doing its thing and you're just praying it comes back into transition i also got hung on back accidental disaster and ran it out but i have been spookinated since, tips?
>>139310calm down satan how heavy are ya
>>139331he just gave esg this shoutout
How many consecutive ollies can you do before getting winded? I feel like I am out of shape, I start coughing and hacking and my chest gets tight when I practice.
>>137389you're half right. skateboarding needs to be gatekept from anyone trying to make money off of it - including skaters. skateboarding is a art, you do it because you love it, not for $$$
Need help, started skateboarding and I have trouble with always leaning forward or backward, never being able to stand straight without steering to one side. I try to stand properly on bolts but I think it's some balance issue associated with flat feet or something.
>>139389Nigga it’s a balance issue because you don’t know how to balance. Tighten your core the next time you’re riding around and adjust your shoulders properly
>>139389Yes, or something
What's the name of this trick? It's going fakie up a mini and then turning 360 on the back truck
>>139402The Super McZoogle 9000
>>139412thanks kind anon
>>139262shitty gel wheels ftw
>>139402Describe the trick more.
>>139415you don't hold the stall you just get the back trucks on the coping and spin one rotation and drop back in
>>139416You have any video examples of the trick?
>>139419fakie frontside 5-0 stall but you spin right around 360 in one motion.https://youtu.be/4tgGeMtPyYwThis is the closest I can find but instead of stopping to rock you keep going all the way around.
>>139423Like while in a stall you're rotating 360, or is it more broken down like you go into it fakie, frontside 5-0 stall, rotate 180 backside into a backside 5-0 stall, then backside 180 again and land it switch?
>>139430while in the stall you're rotating 360
>>139431I would call it a fakie fs 360 5-0 stall, but I'm sure someone else would call it something else. Hell, if it were me personally I would just give it a silly nickname and call it a day. You able to do those? I want to see some footy of that.
>>139432I haven't skated in a few years but yeah I could do that. I've got a new board coming and I want to learn it again. It wasn't hard, I sucked and I couldn't backside or blunt.
>>139434Hell yeah, my dude. Can't wait to see it.
>>139402Fakie 360 pivot.
>>139445Definitely right but I can't find footage of it anywhere
>>139445Just a pivot? But isn't the truck doing a stall on the coping?
>>139448no retard your pivoting on the coping
>>139450Jesus Christ, I'm sorry for trying to understand.
I think you guys have hit your heads too many times
>>139453Hey, congrats on the win! Yeah, I think everyone here has had a little bit of some head slamming because of this falling business. I just want to see some skateplanking action, not fight. Have a good day, friend.
https://youtu.be/aKp8ms5_mfw?t=193alright which one of you was this
Mandatory viewing for beginnershttps://youtu.be/eagVUXKdKeo
Nicole niggas. It's happening.
>>139465What a weird picture
>>139465oh my gosh
>>139465She's sucking in her stomach not realizing that pudgy tummy's are the cutest how heartbreaking
i wish my dreams of skateboarding were longer
>>139448Yeah, I've only ever heard them called pivots when they're on the coping. I know it should technically be considered a different trick given you're using your trucks instead of your wheels, but there you go. 5-0s need to be held, pivots are one motion. Some people find them harder than 5-0s, but you can do them around the same time as learning any kind of truck stall or grind.Fakie 360 is sick though.
How was everyone's weekend? Got a couple small wins, skated with my pals, went to the jam at Hop King. My boomer might be showing, but I genuinely cannot believe how far skating has come in the last 15 years. People were consistently pulled out video-tier shit all night at the jam. Younger people don't know how fucking good they are.Are any old skaters in awe like I am?
>>139350To avoid hang ups when you're learning to skate pool coping try doing grinds that are more of a long sweeping grind instead of an up and down pivot. And if you get to the point where you're getting on top of the coping then remember you have to lean way further back than you're used to so the weight is off your front truck and it doesn't catch. Also having bigger wheels like 56mm+ helps. Wearing pads and a helmet gives you confidence too, I wear them when trying new tricks although I think my style is better without them so I've been trying to go without them more often
>>139461Dude wtf?? I guess you'd expect this in LA tho
>>139505Yeah. Literal babies can skate now
>>139505they literally have a mini and an airbag jump at my old school now lol. these kids are being trained for the olympics as soon as they can stand on a board. they're test tube babies
>>139465Post the rest nigger.
>>139601lol the rest of what?
im 23 am i too old for skating?
>>139628No, but be prepared to be humbled by how difficult skating can be
>>137216not my favourite graphic I've owned but I can still appreciate its whimsicality
>>139654Having this board would instantly make me want to become the best and boardslides and lipslides, as well as any stall trick on tranny that includes the middle of my board. Just so I can scratch that ugly gay shit as fast as humanly possible.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbcNCxUpKNg>flatground gods can only do tricks on fla-ACK!
>>139667He's hitting ledges and rails now too: https://youtu.be/TStZMdvmZAM?t=1187I've seen him on the miniramp at Hop King to top it off. He's coming for you. He's only, what, 20 and has just now started skating California proper.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9NTm7dX5lUdid anyone else see this yesterday when it was a "do a kickflip" spoof?
If you want to learn ukemi (falling safely) you should train Judo. It would help a lot.
>>139795you can't ukemi your way out of a bad slam, animesister
>>139795judo teaches how to fall by throwing your arm on a mat, and they still dont save you from newbs that will tard slam your head
>>139667desu a lot of these tricks are 'easier' to do down something than on flat, casperflips especially.
>>139795Lol if someone has to take a separate sport just so they don't get owies from skateboarding, maybe they should stick to playing Tony Hawks on their ps
>>139822>>139826>>139866Idiots that don’t know proper ukemi. Probably BJJfags who are crying because they can’t do takedowns or they’ll hurt themselves. Train Judo and you’ll protect yourself from falling, if you still get hurt, train more Judo.
dropped in on vert last nightfeelsgoodman>>139883how 2 proper ukemi judobro
>>139887Train Judo and ditch the gay board.
>>139883>>139795I did jujutsu and taijutsu for years where the first degree of both was learning how to roll in every conceivable way. I can still do it automatically from standing.Unfortunately, a skateboard is a moving object that's subject to different kinetic forces and your body is never in a martial arts stance in the moments where you're going to eat shit. You're also usually on a ramp or some other weird, non-dojo like surface, moving at speed, meaning trying to roll on it like it's a level mat will most likely lead to you doing something like shoulder tackling into the ramp. Rolling out of a bail is completely different to ukemi.The main way to learn how to bail safely is to wear pads and make it an instinct to get low for landings, then just fall naturally into the bail either onto your pads, your thighs or your butt. That's all there really is to it.
>>139887>dropped in on vert last nightAny tips? It seems completely fucked to me to go from a standing position to having my board 90 degrees, freefalling.
>>139901>The main way to learn how to bail safely is to wear padsIf you're in a bowl sure. If you're not then you niggas are doing everything wrong.
>>139901>The main way to learn how to bail safely is to wear padshahahaha fucking fagggot!!!! stop giving out bad advice!
>>139904>>139906I am still waiting for the genius who can explain to me why learning with pads somehow makes you "bad" at it.
>>139916no steeze = bad
>>139916if you learn how to bail with pads, then you're opening the doors to being a full-time pad-fag. You can't do shit like knee slides or landing on your elbows without pads on. If you're starting out with no pads , you're learning what you don't want to hit and adjusting yourself little by little so that you fall in ways that protect those parts the pads would protect, and learning to fall on spots that maybe hurt less or not at all.
>>139939i forgot to add, that on top of that... when you're just learning - you aren't doing anything high impact enough that would really put any of those parts at risk anyways. Learning flat ground ollies and poppie shovies aren't going to break your bones unless your a calcium deficient bitch
>>139916You think you're going to knee slide on the street or what? You have no idea what you're talking about.Just stop talking, be quiet for several days.
the fags in these threads who started skating in their 20s should really not be giving out advice
It takes one broken arm to learn to tuck your arms in and roll or slide.
>>139939>>139940>>139942No you fucking don't. Knee sliding on street or doing the basic shit starting out is a dumb, impractical, unnatural way to fall because (unless you're somehow going super fast, which you're not) you'll come to a dead stop and flop forward. You likewise don't purposefully land on your elbows because, surprise, it still hurts. The pads are there for when you, as a beginner, DON'T bail properly and wind up slamming into the ground uncontrolled, so that you don't fuck yourself up more than normal.And for the billionth time; it's not like you can't bail properly with pads on. I don't know why you faggots think that having pads on means you do professional wrestling elbow and knee drops when you fall over. You're still going to figure out/try to roll out of a fall on flat.>muh steezMotherfucker, beginners don't have steez. You look like shit starting out no matter what, and I'd even say you look like a poser trying to fake steez when you can barely push. A beginner with pads is something that wants to skate as much as physically possible.>>139947Or, how about you wear elbow pads force your arms into a good position instead of breaking something and being forced to take weeks or months off?
>guy that doesnt know what he's doing trying to give out advice this general will always be doomed
>>139962you are so fucking dumb dude just shut the fuck up, all you are doing is embarrassing yourself.
>>139962>slamming into the ground uncontrolled, so that you don't fuck yourself up more than normal.> breaking something and being forced to take weeks or months offYeah those sidewalks are really dangerous huh anon. Especially when those beginners fly down the driveway at supersonic speeds, those knee pads will come in handy. Don't want to get a scrape.
>>139973quite possibly one of, if not the most damning webm of all time
>>139975i know the guys not in pads but 90% of the dudes ive seen with a AA deck are fully decked out with pads and a helmet, sometimes even the wrist guards too, most are very new beginners, if they can skate they are awful and take way too long of turns in the bowl/tranny section just carving around maybe doing a rock to fakie. they also all have deck rails to the point youd think the board came with them. needless to say they are all 30+kooks who do not look like they should be skating.
>>139973andybros we dont feel so good
>>139975>>139977>>139978Wow, y'all suck. So what?
Andy Anderson is the human version of a bag of Funyuns
I think if you're just learning you should probably wear a helmet and maybe elbow pads but avoid knee pads because those are the ones that might make you form a habit of dropping to your knees when bailing. Don't start wearing them until you're trying to skate big transition and it's simply safer to kneeslide than run out of something. That's just my 2c as a guy who wears pads sometimes. I have definitely dropped to my knees for a kneeslide when I wasn't wearing pads and it sucks big time.>>139903You simply just do it, it's the exact same motion as dropping in on any other quarterpipe but you have to be a little bit more forceful.
>>139962You're 100% right, but also a dumb shit for engaging with these mouth breathers with single digit IQs. They don't represent the majority and are probably just fucking with you.
>>139985i thought they teach kids to buttslide instead of kneeslide these days
didn't there used to be a pastebin in the OP with tips for beginner boards etc? need that right now
>>140033- 8 or 8.25 board size with a graphic that you like (get this from a local skateshop or an online skate store, don't go to walmart or whatever)- Thunder or Indy trucks to match the board size you chose (they will have this information on the website for you usually).- Spitfire classics 54mm 99A- Any standard hardware for the trucks, don't think about it too hard- Whatever griptape, usually Mob or Jessup- some decent skate shoes on sale from a local shop or online store- A skate tool to set the board up (optional)You can't go wrong with this as a standard beginner set up and it should cost you in the region of 150-200 dollary doos/ GBP/Euros/whatever with some room to account for conversion rates.
I still am a form believer that if you're going to give advice here, especially when you're so adamant about your thing, you should post something so we know how experienced you are and if your tips hold weight.It seems though that the 4 or so guys who have posted clips tend to be more chill than the ones who sperg out and reply to every comment that contradicts them. I'm not sure if that means something, but it's just an observation
>>140050Not everyone here is still stuck on learning how to roll on the sidewalk. It is something you don't even think about, you don't need tips about this, it is second nature. When posters talking about wearing full pads to roll down the street it is an alien concept. The people who started skating yesterday and the posters that have been doing this for several years can not relate to each other anymore. These threads are a mess, because some posters are too grumpy with the newer skaters, but the new posters are so incredulous and inexperienced that they believe they need a serious guidebook on doing literally everything.
>>139903this is what helped mehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L3q74lJF5Eespecially staying lower on the board & grabbing the nose during the drop.desu i think bailing on vert feels a lot more forgiving than what i'm used to on like a 6 or 7 foot ramp. you have so much more time to react and i think the actual transition is mellower too. >>140052it's because newfags do shit like this>>139973that makes them think that you're constantly gonna eat shit rolling down the street and not just that having your board half on concrete/ half on grass in the most awkward position imaginable is gonna make you fall like a retard.
>>139969>beginner>tries to ollie or shuv or whatever>lands feet together, rigid like so >>139973>board slips out and they slam into the concrete with the force of a sledgehammer>probably tries to catch themselves with straight arms because they've never fallen like that before>sprains/breaks wrists, whacks elbow, whips their head, fumbles to their knees, idk>has to take an extended break from skating>or>has pads on, injuries reduced, back on their board sooner>>139977Aside from hogging the bowl, what's the problem? If some suck ass kook wants to be a suck ass kook, let em. What, are you afraid you won't look as cool standing next to them or something?>>140056Look, I'm just saying that if you want to wear pads because you don't want to risk injuring yourself while you learn how to bail, fucking wear them and stop listening to teenagers who think you don't look "steezy" enough. Anything to get you back on your board sooner rather than later. If you can't be bothered, fine that's your choice, but as a beginner you already look like a dork pads or not. These days I pretty much only wear one elbow pad because I broke the joint before, and then a helmet in bowls where I might whip out, but the first few months starting out I took more injuries than I had to because I didn't wear them and it slowed my progress. So I got some, got used to bailing properly, saved myself from some potentially worse falls in the process, and it was all good.
>>140058watching you flail around trying to argue with everyone is hilarious.
>>140058Knee pads aren't going to help some hick in his dirt road from falling on his backYou are still trying to keep this argument up for no reason. Now you're just making shit up. Whacks his elbows AND whips their head?
all the tranny skaters in here who couldn't make it at street skating are so funny. they really think getting fully padded up and learning how to knee slide is going to same someone from rolling his ankle trying to learn how to 50/50 a curb lmao.
>>140103its just the guy who only posts his not-smith grinds at his local over and over bending over backwards to defend his use of pads which isnt neccessary cause being padded in a bowl is like the best scenario for pads. i doubt he's ever tried to 50/50 anything.
My takeaway of bones bushings on Indy's is squirrelly tricks and harder manuals. I'm back to the stock bushings.>>139962I'm the broken arm fag. I think learning this skill to fall (without pads) has translated across to other aspects in life and saved me many potentially worse problems outside of skateboarding. I see your point of precaution but there are other perspectives that make me not regret taking the hits I did. Maybe with pads it's the same, just the road I took.
>>140103you're going to scrape your knee anon be careful! you'll need to take an EXTENDED break from skating if this happens
>>140104Obsessed. I actually posted a photo skating with no pads earlier in the thread. I'm not the guy you're arguing with
>get new trucks>holes on the baseplate are misaligneddo you think i could ask them to send a new baseplate?>>140103gonna have to start doing kneeslides out of my slappies
>>140107What bones bushings did you try? Mediums with indys are too squirrelly for me but the hards feel great. I feel like the hards let me skate faster too.
>>140116This vid is so sick. I wish i could rock n roll like the gonz. And that vert ramp looks so dero
>>140114Mediums from an old pair of trucks so were already well broken in. I think I'll just stick with stock for now, I've been changing up too much.Next is my board..
This was sick.https://youtu.be/UKmjB4Jdro4
