Holy FUCK I love skateboarding
Are wider boards better for taller people? I'm about 5'11, and I currently skate a 7.75I notice that I wobble easily when skating the mini-ramp, and I sometimes feel like my balance isn't that great when I land flip tricks. I
>>163834Its mostly a preference thing. Try going up a quarter inch and see how you like it. For mini ramp that extra stability will probably feel good. What size trucks do you have?
>>163835My trucks are also 7.75. I'm planning to move up to an 8-inch boardShould I also get 8 inch trucks as well to match?
>>163836No, you should be fine. It's usually recommended to stay within a quarter inch difference between board and trucks. If you decide to go above 8 I would get some wider ones.
>>163811shut up faggot. go skate
>>163847Have you ever considered getting an actual job? Or a gf? Or a friend? Fucking autistic retard, go skate your little street spot with your other 40yo autistic manchild friends
>>163872post clip with your gf in the background
Only people who suck continue to skate in their 30sFor the rest of us chads we already learned all the tricks and got bored and moved on
This is the best YouTube channel. He travels to different countries and skated with the localshttps://youtu.be/9impWBOzV6g?si=K9vEP6QWoxebCdX1
>>163884He hasn't been to my country so he sucks ass.
>>163886What's your country
>>163888Anonymous. His Japan video was cool though. Hopefully he makes more, because his previous ones are in shit like Korea and Korea sucks massive ass.
>>163889Why won't you say your country, is it india or something, why are you embarrassed
>>163897Your still gonna be anonymous retard, it's just the fuckin country
>>163904Nice try glowie.
>>163878how fat are you?
so my balls were smelling bad, straight rancid, i could smell bacterial cheese through my pants, when i took a piss i would get wafted with straight balls.now i figured out it was the briefs i had, they were mad out of that spandex and1 type shitso i got new boxers now and they dont even stink after 3 daysthis shit is lifechanging
I'm a poorfag with one board, how do I get over being too pussy to start trying tricks?
>>163959Can you ollie? If you can get comfortable doing ollies at speed. You can start practicing flip tricks while stationary or on grass or carpet. There is no trick to getting over the mental game. You just need to practice and go for it.
Just copped some Gammas from Emerica for $20. Big steal.https://emerica.com/collections/sale
>>163923the stinky bacteria thrive on hydrophobic fabrics
>>163872you sound mad faggot. why dont you go skate.
How do I fix my heelfips? They always turn outwards
>>163991Not sure if this will help, but try flicking more with the side of your foot rather than your actual heel. Bring your front foot back a little so your toes aren't hanging off as far. That's what worked for me.
Skating public property is fine in my book. Obviously you should wreck something to a degree it's unskateable, but some scratches and marks is no big deal. If you pay taxes it's as much your property as anyone, but even if you don't, it's public and where you live.Skating private property is case by case. If it's some old biddies home or a heritage site, yeah, don't be a cunt. But if it's some corporate owned "public private" plaza, wreck that shit. These cunts will unfairly snap up land, then pretend they're not by making it seem like a public space until they change their mind and send out security. Fuck em, we live here too.
>>163999>*shouldn't wreck something to a degree it's unskateabke
>>163991Keep shoulders straight and make sure you're jumping straight up and not leaning or tilting.
>>163983thanks for the heads up, just ordered some too. can't really lose for $20. that's almost free.
>>163834> tallerno... foot size matters though. if you have big feet and a skinny board, it's like standing on a 2x4. I ride a 8" but I wear size 9.5us. it feels perfect. if you have bigger feet than that, get a 8.25 at least. that's probably the most common board size now anyways. ideally you want the same width trucks, but having slightly narrower trucks is fine unless you land primo, slightly wider will cause issues with your foot hitting the wheels though.
HOLY SHIT GUYS! *literally who* JUST WENT PRO! for *literally who* skateboards! trans btw...> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1q7jsTYzHp0
>>164054Damn bro at least open with a non sketchy trick. Faggotass video.
>>164054>*literally who* skateboards!Jerry Hsu's company. Hoping he gets some better talent. Always been a fan of his. The bar is so much lower for women. Its hard for me to even gauge what is considered advanced for them.
>>164057>for women.very funny
>>164057I was going to say that skater was bad even for female standards... then I realized it was trans, so that makes it 100x worse.
>>164059>>164060That does make it worse. I think Sci Fi only has one other pro in Ryan Lay. Unless Jerry is also planning on putting out parts.
>>164054>new yorker>riders for krux>is a trannyI literally spoke this meme into existence a couple of years ago when I was arguing with some NYShitter in here and told him the NY style is know for trannies. And I've also always said krux is the tranny company. I'm literally God and writing the script as we go.
>>164061so is Hsu just a porn addict or some shit? what would make a former core pro skater do these things? why isn't he sponsoring legit skaters?
What did that nigga look like before he turned into a bitch?Anyone got pics?Jerry is totally is addicted to tranny porn
>>164065>muh core skatersAre you living in some fantasy? Look at this dude lmao.
>>164067Jerry is 100% a core skater. His Bag of Suck part is legendary.
>>164065Jerry Hsu has literal brain damage. Look at all of his old b-roll footage and look at how many times he smashed his head. Then watch any recent interview, he's not all there.
>>164067> t. zoomerhe was very well known, his shoes were good too.
>>164068>>164071Dumb retards, I'm saying you can't be surprised at the current events, not that he's not known or wasn't somebody. I'm so tired of illiterate low IQ faggots on here that just get triggered immediately.
>>164065I guess Corey Glick is also on Sci Fi. I seem to remember Gifted Hater getting boards from them as well, but I haven't watched his videos in a while.
>>164073>Corey Glick is also on Sci Fi.this is actually good, those tum yeto dickheads hardly pay their riders
>>164072>I'm saying you can't be surprised at the current eventsWhere did you say that? Were we supposed to glean that from the pic of him looking aloof?
>>164076In my post here >>164067. Work on your reading comprehension and lurk more before posting.
>>164078That's what I'm referring to.>Are you living in some fantasy? Look at this dude lmao.How does this translate to>I'm saying you can't be surprised at the current events
>>164080>how could guy do thing?>because look at him!Anon it's not hard.
>>164080he's doing mental gymnastics after he got called out for not knowing who Jerry Hsu is.
>>164087No you're just retarded.
calling jerry hsu a tranny porn addict has got to be the most 4chan thing you can do. great way to kick off the new general.
>Get my kickflip groove on>shoe is wrecked>"oh well, I'll get shoes eventually, I can practice switch and nollie meanwhile">Get shoes>switch board from either 8 or 8,125 to 8,25>it's like I never knew how to kickflipeveryfuckingtime>>163815That is not a streetplant
>>163836Is he doing hardflips?
>>163872>>163878why are you here?
>>164057>Its hard for me to even gauge what is considered advanced for themThen you haven't watched Gifted's latest video
>>164072You are the only one getting triggered.
>>164100new shoes are always worse than a new setup, but it goes away after a couple of sessions. the only shoes I ever remember being able to skate in instantly were C1RCA AL50. I dunno if the new ones are as good as the originals, but man I loved those shoes.
>>164054Jesus, is there ONE clean make in that video? And how about some music or something?
>>164107>new shoes are always worse than a new setupBUT WHY
>>164114because a new setup is only noticeably different if you change trucks. even decks don't make a massive difference unless you're changing the width by more than a half inch. I can get used to a new deck in like 10 minutes. new trucks, even the same kind with fresh bushings, take time to get "broken in."
>>164102I'm addicted to the Internet
>>164114Being able to do a trick like that consistently requires precise muscle memory.Precise muscle memory applied to a changed variable means you have to re-calibrate.You've still got the "instrument", you just need to calibrate it.
>>163959if you're in the states I got tons of spares that are pretty mint if you skate 8s if you're really really a poorfag or in some shitganistan fuck shit country i can probably work something out to get you a board
>>163992Thanks will try adjusting my foot next session. I feel the board follows my front foot.>>164001I try to focus on staying over my board, leaning forward a little. It might be shoulders, would it be too open or closed do you think?
>>163989I do go skate, i also have a job, friends, and a gf who i have sex with. I am better than you, you ar a wastoid loser
>>164095is that because 4chan is the only place where the truth is spoken?
jerry hsu always had and has weak faggot style. also doesn't skate any real transition so yeah not surprised he's a troon lover
>>164136I disagree. That boned switch ollie that he does over that huge gap in Bag of Suck is still one of the most aesthetically pleasing switch ollies I've ever seen.
hot trannys are based
>>164158You're attracted to men, faggot
Posting in this thread at 6 am. Hit trannies sre kinda based but I'm addicted to tranny porn myself, I'm in recovery I only jerk off like 3 times a month
>>164124Not sure what open or closed means but basically your entire body has a movement chain from top to bottom and if you're turning or leaning at any point during your jump your legs will follow, and in turn your board. You can make the board heelflip by hitting the center of your nose with your toes if you're flexible enough, but if you're leaning or turning it will follow. It's the same with ollies. If you can do a straight ollie then just try and find what you're doing different with heelflips. It could also be a timing issue with your kick but I can't tell. If you kick too early the board could be catching your back foot ever so slightly.It could also be your back foot position, and that's probably what's actually causing it. If it's too much in a shuv it position the board will turn right when you pop. If your ollies aren't turning I'm willing to bet your back foot is in a different position. Your front foot is not the issue.
>im on 4chan that means i can have bad opinionsshut up retards
>>164124>>164181So basically you're already turning a little bit when you jump and when you pop your tail doesn't hit the ground at the center, but a bit to the side. If you film yourself doing an ollie, your tail will probably be hitting right at the middle. If you film your pop shuv it will probably look more like your heelflip.
>>164184>>164124Look at this fag and how centered his tail is when it hits the ground. He's also still scooping at the pop while you're already kicking. That's a millisecond difference but still.
And if you also compare your body direction before you pop and when you're landing, you can definitely see you're turning right as you jump. You have to keep your body straight throughout the entire movement of the jump, not only when you're about to pop. It's the same with ollies.
You haven't already popped at you're already kicking with your front foot. Tail isn't making contact yet. So basically it's a front foot timing issue. Your tail is about to hit the ground straight down but you're kicking too early and it's tilting right before the pop happens. Scoop first like an ollie and then kick. Not a foot placement issue. Just timing and you're also turning a bit because you're not used to the front foot position being different from an ollie. Since your front foot goes further out it makes you turn. And that's not a problem, but you just have to compensate with your leg muscles when you jump to make sure you're jumping straight up.
Should a almost 40 dad start to skate or will I break a leg?
>>164180Recover from what? Your natural urges?
>>164115>>164118I did change trucks and bushings, same lengthAllright, thanks brothers
>>164198There's no guarantee. Me I tore my whole knee apart. Others like fat dadbro skate often with no issues.
>>164198get in shape first. lowest possible healthy bodyweight, build your leg muscles, joints, and tendons up by riding a bike up hills while standing. become more flexible by doing daily exercises. the only other real variable is the condition of your body/genetics. you can still cruise around and do low impact shit though. jumping down stairs isn't smart unless you've been doing it for a long time. the most important thing you learn when skateboarding is how to fall anyways, and you tend to learn that the hard way when starting out. this is where being light and flexible can make or break you. rolling your ankle or going a split can be the difference between tearing something or just being sore for a couple of days. spend some time getting in good condition first, will save downtime in the long run.
this nigga skates like me in my dreams> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymu7FBoNAho
>>164203Thanks, man.>>164207Well, I already hit the gym and do some cardio. Anyway I'm overweight, and my right knee is not 100% due to football (soccer) when I was younger.My main concern is hurt my right knee.
>>164209Do you skate goofy?
>>164213Never skated before, but I guess not. I played football with the right leg.
>>164200Tranny porn, it's not healthy for your psyche
>>164216It's over for you then.
>>164189Wow thanks alot anon. All makes sense, just need to go do it.
>>164221Yeah and not letting your front foot hang out as much will help, although it's not mandatory. Just wanted to make it a point that your front foot can be anywhere on the board as long as you know what you're doing. I personally leave my foot in an ollie position but I also have to jump higher and kick out harder like kung fu panda. The way you're doing them now will give you a faster and snappier flip, but me I don't like that.
>>164223If I can get them down I'll be happy. I missed the other post, it's not an issue really with any other trick I have, my ollie's are fine. I think maybe I'm compensating with the back because the front is so off tho.
>>164224I'd like to see a clip of you doing an ollie over something.
>>164224Literally just keep your shoulders straight little zoomer
>>164208yeah hes the only cool skater on frog :^)
heybased on your experiences, wich decks are "better" or more durable? Maple, or birch?
>>164252I like bbs ones I cant speak to durability or their ability to not absorb water but they pop real nice when they are new and the graphics are cool>>162088this guy skates the decks i do and I fuck with these>>162179this anon reports china boards are fine enough tootheres some slap thread toohttps://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=120409.0might give you some insight maybe grab a bbs on sale like that one anon from the last thread
>>164253>theres some slap thread tooYo retard kill yourself.
>>164257why are you mad about that it's a pretty solid resource ive gotten from this thread>in b4 post a clip
>>164165yeah if they're pretty enough
>>164259Nobody is mad you're just being told to slit your wrists.
my only skating friend is a schizo narcissist that starts behaving standoffish and ghosts me whenever i talk about my little progress and not his trauma dumping
I'm that guy... that guy that busts HUGE boned out ollies over everything. You got tech tricks? Heh... that's cool, but watch this!> *POP*Yeah... I just ollied UP that 5 stair.
I skated for like 15 years and now i have arthritis.
I skated and now I can't get bitches off my dick.
>>164266I've got a fucked ankle that cracks and pops when I move it. doesn't hurt that bad when I skate, but when I stop skating and walk around it's worse.
>>163815>>163815You guys have to watch this part, the wood park is batshit insane https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqpNlQvnyCg
>>164269I'll watch it eventually, he's really short and a ramp skater so it's not super compelling to me, but he's cool
>>164269That barn set up was crazy. I would smack my head trying to roll through the top part.
>>164227Sounds good>>164233I'm trying
>>164209>>164207>>164198>go to the one pool in London with my friend>she's 20, I'm 31>oldheads gather here, a 60 year old guy shows up>hasn't been on his board in 2 years due to a knee injury>further complications with illnesses and circulation problems>normally takes blood thinners because his leg veins may build up a deadly blood clot, but stops taking them so he can skate and not worry about a brain bleed should he hit his head>decides to take it easy, climbs into the pool and does some (for him) small carves while his dog watches>is a mix of adrenaline and old age, looks like he might collapse>sticks it out for 2 hours>some other old heads show up and start talking about the 70s and 80s scene>watched him go home with a glowing sense of satisfaction on his face40 isn't too old. Literally just pace yourself, especially early on as you'll be using weird leg and core muscles you didn't know existed. You can work out if you want, but skating is like martial arts in that it IS the exercise. Wear pads and prepare to fall hard in your early days. Stick to transition (bowls, miniramps, halfpipes etc) if you want to avoid a lot of impact on your knee.
>>164269God damn I love Masher videos so much.
>>164198I don't think you'll break your leg especially if you're just learning. However, your legs , crotch, ankles, and feet are going to feel very very sore for a week at a time. I used to skateboard through my teens and I'm 38 now and got back into it 5 years ago I think. I haven't broken anything but I have fucked my ACL and recently given myself a very bad ankle sprain. Both from doing stairs and both in the past year. Ive had minor ankle shit happen before but nothing this bad. I work at a desk so it's fine- if you have a manual labor job... I would say take it easy.>>164203I used to have no issues but they seem to be coming up more often. I posted my ankle in the last thread. I took last weekend off but I think it'll be good enough this weekend to at least work on some stalls on a small quarter pipe
>>164047thanksthe reason i mention height as opposed to foot size is due to centre of gravitytaller people tend to have a higher centre of gravity, so they're more inclined to wobblehaving a wider board I presume reduces wobbleness
>>164101not sure lol, could be that or maybe varial heels
>>1643646ft tall, 11.5UK shoe, 87-90kg riding an 8.5" board here. That combination works well for me. Big enough to feel stable, small enough that I can still flip it. I have, however, noticed how bad my general stance was due to my high centre of gravity only recently. In general I've found that I should have been semi-squatting a lot more, between riding around flat, the whole way through popped tricks, carving bowls, getting to the top of transition and doing a lip trick, etc. Every time I can't make something I remind myself to keep my legs bent the whole way through a trick and suddenly it comes a lot easier.
Why would you ever want to flip your board, fliptricks are gay
>>164379Are you a tranny maximalist or something?
>>164380I'm a atv, I just don't see a point to them, seems like a bunch of bullshit to meI'd rather do a stylish ollie
>>1642691:04 and 3:16-3:49 super sick trail cam footy through the barn/snakerun, my only wish is that I wish it was a little bigger cause I don't know if I could squeeze into such a keyhole barrel but honestly this guy fucking rips2:07 I like how he embraces his positive ape index and like swings from shit like a monkey4:13-4:24 the oldstyle is alive with the fully decked rock n rolls, and again with the positive ape index steeze 4:55 fucking kickturns at the apex of transition especially that really blown out frontside one looked disgusting, (see 7:27)5:17 im not sure what grab this is even but god damn it fucking looks cool it looks like hes throwing a blowtail 5:23 positive ape index steeze again 8:15 also that part where he was fucking around outside with that little diy wallramp and was gaining so much vert was pretty fucking nuttythat flatground stuff is cool too i guess
>>164379fliptricks aren't gay you just don't have enough steeze to pull it off
>>164381seems like pointlessly limiting yourself, but ok
>>164364>>164047buy some stiffer bushings,
I've been thinking about how really tight trucks used to be a thing, and how much it made some tricks harder. I used to run the 2nd hardest DohDoh bushings in low trucks when I was like 80lbs soaking wet. lol. that shit would need an entire parking lot to turn a full circle. now I know why I was so bad at nose manuals, krooks, and tre flips despite being able to do a lot harder shit.
>>163815>>163815Is this what schizophrenia is like?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BkCa4VtUMQ
had a super off session today. felt sluggish and could barely land anything more than my basic staples.>>164402cool video
>>164134I have sex with your gf too! tunnel buddies!
>>164405So you had sex with your mom?
is PDA at the park lame or am I just being an angry incel
>>164407>or am I just being an angry incelThat much was already obvious. You want another skater boy to kiss you don't you anon.
>>164407Pda anywhere is fucking annoying but yes you are an angry incel
>>164407>pdahonestly anytime i see that cutesy couple shit i just throw up in my mouth i dont need to see you fucking holding hands yuck i dont want to see that shitt. fellow angry incel
>>164369nice thanksyeah I also recently experienced the same thingI wasn't bending at my knees/hips nearly enough as I thought I was. it wasn't until I filmed myself that I realized how stiff and upright I was. I realized how important it was to squat down when I started skating transition and going off ledges and stairs. It's also especially important when you start doing flip tricks at a high speed. If you slam, it's much easier to absorb the crash when you're squatting down, as opposed to standing straight up.
anyone here tried film trucks
just copped some black on white sb dunks. they are doooope. so much flick.
>>164269From the replies you got, I can already tell it's Ben Raybourn. Not his greatest output, but I always root for this guy.
>>164404Same here. I am just posting today, but mine was yesterday too. I am the anon who forgot how to kickflip. Morning now, so I am going again to try and get kickflips REALLY wired, for good.
>>163991>>163992What this anon said. The “hang your toes off the board” is a meme for heelflips. I learned to land them a lot cleaner this way
>>164402This is what skateboarding should be, having fun
>>164413Same. I rarely film myself but then someone got a clip of me doing an ollie, which was thankfully high due to having a strong pop, but when I could compare it to someone else's clip I could see just how much more upright I was than I thought. I've also taken notes from pool skaters about how pumping is different for them in that they only really start the pump half way up a wall, and once I started doing that in other types of transition I've seen how much more stable I am by the time I reach coping.I really wonder how the fuck people got good at skating without video sometimes. You could be doing shit wrong for years until you happen upon the right demo at the right time.
>>164379please stub your toe for the betterment of mankind
my Emerica Gamma that I snagged for $20 arrived. genuinely impressed. I didn't really like the way they looked but they're not as bad in person. man are they surprisingly comfy though... and it's one of those shoes that doesn't really feel like it needs to be broken in. it's like an og slim shoes, not too fat or padded, but fatter and more padded than your average modern skate shoe. I just didn't expect them to feel this good. I could probably go skate right now and not have to get used to them, they just have that feeling.
>>164415I only skate Ventures because I'm an OG.
Got rained on heavily like 3 times the last few weeks and now my board feels like it's lost pop.
I just sold a Miata for nine grand, now I'm gonna buy a minivan and travel around the country
>>164415>>164415I really want to try them, they're kind of hard to get here in the US
a kid called me a cosplayer because im wearing a sticker bombed helmet and bad30yo boomers what is our response
>>164499Have sex with his mom.
new tania vid for the simphttps://youtu.be/I2p_NWKa5LI
>>164505I don't get it... who is she supposed to be and why are people recording her? She can do a boardslide... so can the 5 year olds at the skatepark.
>>164505Is that the same bank spot that Tyler Surrey does that fat nollie big flip off the edge? I wish I had spots like that where I live.
has skateboarding really fallen off so hard that brands are promoting insta art whores en masse? can anyone please tell my what brands DON'T do this normie bullshit so I can only support those companies? what brands only feature legitimate skaters who have put decades into progressing?
>>164508Zero, Polar, Sk8mafia
>>164509I thought Polar sold $100 t-shirts and parachute pants? fuck that gay shit too.
>>164511lol yeah, they just have a decent team. I liked their last video a lot. Only ever had their decks. I don't buy "skate" clothes.
>>164511how do you think they pay their riders? this has been common knowledge for ages. those expensive meme clothes are hardly ever bought by dirtbag skaterats. its for meme fashion kids. the companies get their money and use it to pay their riders actual living wages. the little bit of money the average pros make is not coming from huge board sales anymore.
The year is 1999 and you're wearing a t-shirt over a longsleeve, pushing mongo at the skatepark...> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iNbnineUCI
>>164513most skate brands never sold shit like that. "supreme" doesn't count, nobody outside of NYC knew what that shit was, and small skateshops didn't carry it.
>>164514>pushing mongoI never pushed mongo
>>164518sounds like your problem, not mine.
>>164515because they USED to sell tons of boards. all of the old pros have talked about this. the old workshop guys used to have several sports cars because they didnt know what to do with their big checks. the pros of today are working day jobs just to pay their share of the rent. i dont know why you would want skaters to be even poorer
>>164521skaters are richer now than they've ever been. I personally know pros who were selling shit out of their trunk and couch surfing in 2013. unless you were Rob Dyrdek and had something going on the side, you were dead broke.
>>164514>wearing a t-shirt over a longsleeveI still do that now
>>164514Neither of these applied to me. I only push mongo in switch.
will tattoos make me a better skater
>>164532only if a dirty needle is used
Look how much Xanax I used to be prescribed This is skate related I used to skate off the xans boy let me tell ya
>>164522The glory days were over by 2013. We are in the corporate skate era now. You can make money but you have to sell out your industry to do so.
>>164536and nobody wanted to be around you
>>164541Doesn't matter, in my mind I was the manChads rise up
>>164536>>164542I hope you get better
>>164532no but smoking crack might
>>164544I'm sober now I was just going through old pictures and was like damn I'ma make a blog post
Everyone who skated used to smoke cigarettes, have you guys switched to vape yet. You were not a true skater if you didn't smoke cigs
>>164548I still smoke 20 a day, I wasn't raised a quitter
>>164548If you smoke or vape at the park you are a fucking loser
>>164536I wish I had that and it was oxy
>>164505I've been to Barcelona twice before, prior to skating, and I hated it both times. It seems to be THE go-to place in Europe for a skate trip though, so I wonder if I'd like it now.
>>164553My girl is from Barcelona and visiting there was what inspired me to skate again desu, I thought it was great.
Why can't they ever just shut the fuck up and skate?> https://youtu.be/AOJOJzb9MeU?si=LiQFhOmzUNS-MZPv&t=845OH WAIT!... because they fucking suck!
>>164553>and I hated it both times.how come?
>>164548I smoke spliffs
Sorry for late reply>>163978>Can you ollie?That's the one i'm trying to do, I've practised the movements off the board but I just don't want to fuck up and land bad on it and break it. The board is second hand too but is in good condition but I'm not sure I want to test it.>>164123>in some shitganistan fuck shit countryEngland so pretty much, how would that work exactly?
How busy is your local skatepark? I see another skater maybe once a fortnight but it's always either just me or filled with scooter kids with their mom just texting.
>>164560Forgot to addDo you prefer to be with other skaters or just yourself? I just feel like i'm missing the community aspect of skateboarding.
Is theRe a name for the super natural phenomena upon your board to which all natural causes and explanations is facing the correct way as you throw down and roll up yet suddenly as you are halfway into popping your trick some nasty demons magically rotate your board as if time itself was frozen and you are none the wiser to your now backwards facing board and then your pop sucks and you fail and you assume somewhere you messed up despite being an infallible human being and you begin to feed negative energy to the entities who played this nasty trick on you?
^ that poster has meth psychosis
>>163815>>163815Did you guys see this one? Being a pro skater looks amazing. These guys are so fried it's actually worrying. I think he's 35 years old by now.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP0ihwblSy4
>tfw beat the plantar fasciitis allegations
>>164561I prefer being totally alone. I'm not interested in talking to other people usuallyone of my parks gets super busy with skaters and scooter kids combined. it gets pretty retarded when everyone is trying not to crash into one anotheri go to a nearby park late at night, and I'm literally the only one there sometimes - it's pretty great
>>164561I think there's benefits to both and ultimately it doesn't really matter, but I just can't stand 90% of people, so I tend to skate alone by choice. I'm not in it for friends or for other people to think I'm cool, I just do it to keep active and for the personal challenge/reward.
>>163834try a bigger board. I switch to an 8.25 and I feel it has helped my skateboarding progress immensely. Didn't even need to convert to scientology size 10.5 shoes btw
anyone know why there wasn't a berrics game posted last weekend?
>>164556Hot, smelly, super busy, real awful pickpocket/gypsy problem. Second time I was there with on a college class trip, one of us was robbed before even making it from the airport to the hotel.
>>164560I usually has a dozen people skating at a time, though sometimes it's dead quiet.>>164561Depends on the mood. If I want to learn something new, alone so I can really go for it and not worry about what's around me. But just hanging out with the homies is good too, even if it means I wind up playing it safe.
>>164628thanks, I have 10.5 shoes tooI'll get at least an 8-inch board next time
>>163815Hey you babies Soletech is blowing out their own shoes again because of Labor Day30 percent off of all the stuff already on sale. I got two pairs of Emericas for 40 dollars it's a total steal. The local shop owner is probably weeping but oh well it's my wallet not his, so he can kick rocks.
>>164644that's kind of annoying because I would have ordered a more expensive pair had they been doing the extra 30% off the other day. but oh well. that's probably the best sale you're ever going to see because shipping is also free. they're basically giving away shoes at this point. lol
>>164611Moose hasn't been pro for a long time. Deathwish wanted him to live in LA and he refused.
>>164653darling he has a pro board for mystery skateboards. very prestigious you know rofl
>>164653Deathwish is literally the gayest team along with Shake Junt. I remember when they both started it was just "dude weed" and stupid rap music that didn't even fit the style of most of the team. the team would show up to demos completely wasted and barely even skate, puking in the park in front of little kids and shit. they are the types of teams/brands that caused skating to fall off around 2013. before that it was all about skating, and not the party bullshit for the most part. so many pre-pubescent teens became retarded potheads who eventually quit skating because of that shit.
>>164658Mystery was a popular brand before Deathwish was ever even a thing.
>>164660wow really? never heard of it. do you know jamy thomas?
>>164661No but I've heard of Drew Reynauds, the retard who wears his beanie crooked and does the same trick over and over.
Aurélien Giraud and Kevin Bækkel are the best skaters. It's not even close.
>>164663Wow you took the time to do the weird euro characters, what a loser
>>164667shut the fuck up José
>>163991Make sure you're popping from center of tail
>>164611>These guys are so fried it's actually worrying.how sheltered are you lmao
>>164611To be fair Moose is kind of a failed pro skater but yeah it's pretty bad.
I wonder if I should try skating again. Not sure if I'm baiting myself for disaster. I tore my knee up a while ago and quit everything. Been working from home since the scamdemic but recently went to the office. Barely anyone goes but they put a table tennis table and some baddie asked me to play with her. She brought rackets and everything. I'm like sure I'll give it a go and it actually didn't go that bad. I was slow as shit and my knee hurt for 3 days after but while playing when I warmed up it felt ok.
if you wanna skate, skate. you have one life. you won't be young and able forever.
>>164611>so friedHow so?
>>164700Watch the vidIf you don't see anything wrong with it you are also fried
>>164611>"Now I'm gonna play a round of Call of Duty to get my head straight before the skate sesh."
>>164707I watched it the other day. He was sober? He played cod, watered his plants, skated then went to his shitty job. Why is that fried?
>>164713He sees people leading a happy existence and working. Since there's no possible way he could ever relate to any of that he likes to pretend they're fried.
The HUF video is great. Someone posted a leaked version in the last thread.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJ1rCxxxS9Q
>>164561gotta go the meetup spot and skate with the other degenerates
Just rolled into 7ft bowl with pool copingWhat's the biggest thing you've rolled into lads? I'm going to get 8ft soon too and i think I'll stop there
>>163836>>164101After 3 minutes of arching I have determined it's a hardflip and a steady fakie tre. He is skating regs, the gods stance
>>164611I saw home depot in the thumbnail and had to make sure it wasn't a troll. I guess skating really doesn't pay except for the very top end pros. Unless he burned through all his money. Respect to him for working a day job and showing it on YouTube. Maybe it's not too late to make some money from that also
>>164063arins from some bumfuck mid west state not NY, all the trannies just end up in new york causes it's a cultural epicenter unlike whatever irrelevant europoor country you're from
>>164264kek i have a faggot incel friend like this, thank god he adds absolutely nothing to my sessions so i dropped him, fat dork always whining about his gay tranny feelings instead of learning how to flip his board.
>>164265death is knocking on your door gramps, enjoy those knees while you can
>>164379cope, u sound like a dork that can only skate tranny and do shuvs with shitty fake steez
>>164407ur right, dudes that display pda all the time always look gross and musty as fuck and the bitch is always clapped with a man face
>>164508skate culture is so fucking fried and corny now it's best to be completely checked out from it, you'll be missing out on absolutely nothing.
>>164767>be degenerate freak>get ridiculed in the midwest>go to NYShit so you can fit in and thrive in degeneracy.Many such cases.
>>164770>a dork that can only skate trannyThis is way more preferable than being some faggot who can only skate street which seems like 9/10 zoomer skaters
>>164765warehouse is the quintessential post skate career move
>>164673>>164700fucking lmao these two are going to work retail in their 40s
>>164611>sometimes I'll just hide behind a box so nobody can see me
>>164783ok retard skating tranny comes way easier to street skaters than vice versa, why do you think every fat zoomer girl on a skateboard takes to transition and not street skating
>>164793Lol maybe if your idea of tranny is 3ft mini ramps. You call those vert, don't you? Takes big fuckin balls to skate ramps that are 8ft plus and you don't have em kid, back to the 16" high ledge to practice your noseslides>>164787Yeah if you're a complete fucking useless faggotBest post-skate-career move is working for a skate company and then transitioning into full time construction work like a man and not a little bitch like Moose who gets tired pushing pallets around for a few hoursHas to fucking hide behind the box so he can have his fried meltdown in peaceI love to fuck with losers at home depot like that, asking them to get shit off the top shelves for me then when they get it down i'm like 'hmm sorry wrong one' and just walk off haha fucking faggots should have got a trade
>almost 40 years old>lives with his parents>struggling to work an entry level retail job>spends his mornings playing COD>room is covered in tupac memorabilia No wonder a couple of posters got upset when somebody pointed this out.
>>164799scroll up you big silly goofball
>so typically, i wake up in the morning, i take my shit, and then i'll come downstairs and i'll start making a smooooothie. i'm really big on my smoothies. like i really think this is one of the reasons why i frickin' skate as good as i do
>>164800I like to just come home hop on 4chan and drop random questions on people without reading any of the posts I made while I was away.
>>164802I don't even know how to read, it's never come in handy as far as I am concerned
>>164801>smoothie is 1 banana and a couple of strawberries i was expecting something a bit more elaborate...
>>164659Teams and everything aside, I just want to share with everyone that I think Deathwish is one of the coolest skate brand names ever. Alongside Antihero and Creature. If I'm a little kid with chore money I'm buying any of these decks without caring about anything else.
>anyways i'm exhausted as hell... frickin' skating all day... just yeah. this is like the stuff i deal with on the daily. i go skate all day, i gotta rush home, shower, and then i go straight to work...Damn feel sorry for this dude, he clearly has a very stressful life
>>164802>any of the posts I made while I was awayAny of the posts people made*. Apparently I can't write either.
>Here is my pokemon card collection >Some of them were stolen
Is Moose gay? What is this BL shit?
only thing i'm jealous of moose of is that he gets to fuck prime jailbait white trash pussy
>>164811But anon he's gay.
>>164796Why are you so miserable?
>>164805The last Deathwish video was excellent too. Pure skateboarding. None of the party lifestyle shit the anon you replied to moaned about.
>>164822No. Are you a loser who can't skate tranny? Yes
People who can't skate tranny are like people that can't dance, no rythym
>>164855you mean they're both faggots

>>164873You're a wannabe jannie kek
>>164790I'm close to my 40s. I have a career. More money than you blah blah. Don't throw stones clueless zoomie. Youll be facing a decision between wage slaving and chasing a dream one day, And you won't be making fun of those who took the later option once you've been there.
>>164879is your dream to be a fucking loser like moose?
>>164880I'm far below the ability required to be a professional, so it's not really fair of me to pass judgement on something that I haven't been presented the opportunity to do. Who am I to shit on this guy, whose whole fucking life probably revolved around skating - to not try and make a career of skating, and if he tried, and succeeded - excellent that's dope. If it didn't work out it's incredibly fucked to try and rub his nose in the existence he's managed to eke out for himself. That doesn't come across as super sour to you for some reason?
>>164869lol where on earth do transition skaters have a bad name? amongst zoomers?
>>164883no i don't feel bad for talking shit about moose at all because he's human trash who just happened to be born good at skateboarding. although i've never seen him do anything in a bowl so not that good
>>164884bruhh who carreeessuh?
>>164880No, I went to uni and have a successful career. However you're living that loser life as we speak bro. Shouldn't throw stones.
>>164887>dan corrigans armsthis is your reminder not to buy that overpriced pontif shoe
>>164879>muh dream chasing rofl I'm surprised you didn't let us know about your super model wife and private jet
>>164898You are so desperate to hate you misread my post. I didn't chase the pro skater dream, I took the safe option. Now fuck off and go skate you little retard.
>getting this sperg to pretend he's a rich boomerBoy aggro poster you really winded this guy up. I wonder why he's taking this so personally.
im on team rich boomer the aggro zoom zoom is too much as of late
>>164905>He sucks because he works at home depot>He sucks because he has a careerI just hate losers
>>164909He is turning out to be a necessary evil because he keeps these tourist goons out of the threads

>>164934they're all bi
>>164923>ozakaGod I hate normalfaggots so much.
>>164923kill yourself pedophile
There is that guy at every skatepark who does boneless type tricks only, and I'm sure he thinks people don't realize that it's because he can't do normal tricks. Usually a black guy that dresses emo or punk. Like, nigga learn how to ollie.
>>164969sometimes posers are just simply corny with low skate iqs and would rather do kooky freestyle shit just to be different, so the emo/punk cosplay checks out here
>>164889think hes skating etnies right now
>>164681What's bad about it? That he didn't really make a career as a pro and now has to work retail? Wow what a buffoon
Some dude told me I look like Miles Silvas when I skate but I literally don't.
>>164992if you can't tell that he's fucked by watching the video then you're probably fucked too but here we go>wearing t shirt that has his own name on it>smoothie is some room temperature bland of a handful of fruit, whey and water, probably only 200cals worth of food>he thinks somehow this shitdrink helps him skate so good even though his skating is no better than any other washed up hometown hero at this point>lives at home with his sister at 33, no serious gf or anything>thinks dopamine destroying play video games will 'get his head straight'>finds joy in virtually shooting people while swearing at them>his bedroom looks like it belongs to a 15 year old>has pokemon cards like a fucking 12 year old>waters his plants with a plastic jug of water instead of a garden hose>almost gets broke off doing mob ass kickflip>goes to work stoned as fuck>menial labor job that a retard could do>no aspirations to do more in life
>>165027I think you misheard him. He said Marbie Miller
>>165038why are you so upset at this guy? Did he dis you personally or something? I'm sure your life is so much more together than his is. Maybe try improving yourself instead of seething over people on the internet?
Sometimes I wanna find a little skater twink and become it's sugar daddy, I can buy him polar big boys but its panties underneath Just me n my little skater twink
>>165056And I'm not even gay
>>165056ngl i would wear panties on my head for some polar boards
>>165038Most of that comes down to 'lol who cares'But the no aspiration part, he pursued being a pro for over a decade and now he has a monetized YouTube channel. He clearly has no interest in going to college and working a 9-5. So again, who cares?
>>165038>hating somebody for being happy in their lives.many such cases. sad.
>>165071>now he has a monetized YouTube channel.whoa!
>>165038You know the guys that are disagreeing with you are more than likely exactly the same. Guys approaching their 40s living at home collecting Pokemon cards.
>>165071>pursued being a pro for over a decade>failed>now content with working a minimum wage job at home depot>for the rest of his lifeas i said before if you watched the video and didn't see anything wrong then there's not much point in even saying this but if you get to age 30 and you haven't got some kind of valuable skill then you've kinda blown it and your 30s are going to be harder than they otherwise would be. skateboarding or pushing carts at home depot is not a valuable skill.
>>165078But he is not content. He posts YouTube videos, has sponsors, does home depot for some extra cash for now. I suppose hoping his yt gets bigger or it helps revitalize his name in the skate scene enough to not need to work a home depot job any more.He has 10k subscribers now and that day in the life video has 80k views. With some growth + affiliates/merch/new sponsors with his name being more recognizable there is potential to make a comfy living. Be smart with your money, invest (obviously he doesn't seem the type to but maybe he will learn) and he might never need to work a 9-5 or shitty home depot job again.Seems he has a comfy home life and is content enough to give it a go. You and me don't because we see that as a bum ass dream that probably won't happen for us. But for him it might.
I've always wondered; is it possible to make a genuinely good skateboarding movie? I feel like the actual "good" ones barely have any skating in them. There are lots of good skating documentaries, so it's surprising there's basically no good fictional films (aside from some so-bad-they're-good ones).
>>165038>wtf, a dedicated skater is working a blue collar job and scraping by?! Why isn't he making Danny Way money?I don't really know what you guys expect the life of a "pro"/full time skater to be like. Being decent at it takes so much god damn time and there isn't, for whatever reason, THAT much money out there for everyone to be a well paid pro even if they're amazing at it. Of course you have to scrape by to make it work.The lack of aspirations or ambitions thing is a bit of a double edged sword. On one hand it sucks and you can be a nothing Big Lebowski type that only gets more unappealing the older you get and it can leave you pissing in the wind when you're too old or injured to skate any more, but on the other hand it's nigh on enlightened to be able to enjoy a simple pleasure in life. I've met all sorts in my life and the go-getters with amazing careers and money out their ass are more often than not really miserable, boring people with no time or capacity to live, and the old men lived like that are especially bitter by the time they reach retirement because the money doesn't buy back the lost time, usually riddled with even worse health conditions because they didn't exercise or sleep enough and ate like shit the entire time. They crash and burn in a really negative way.And on one hand I wish skaters had 2000s money again, but on the other hand the majority of those guys pissed it all away anyway. The only true success is somewhere in the middle, and hopefully they get paid for it.
>>165114i think theyve made every type of skateboarding movie they could make and they shouldnt make anymore.
>>165121yeah, the way to do it imo is to get reasonably skilled at something so you're valuable enough to the economy that you can work for yourself. then you can spend as much time as you want skating or traveling or whatever while still being able to work as much as you please obviously this isn't the path that everyone will take but this is the road that i'm on in my late 20s
>>165038Fact that you posted this outright guarantees he lives a happier life than you.
I keep getting injured doing stupid shit
>>165114Possible... yes. But it would have to be a kids movie, or feature young kids as the main characters to evoke nostalgia. Too many ways to ruin the movie with teens or adults... dude weed, cliche shit, going pro, the list goes on. You'd have to capture the foundational natre of skateboarding, which is nothing more than fun. something with the feel like sandlot, goonies, or movies that simply follow around neighborhood kids doing literally basic daily shit kids do. no real "plot." trying to hard to make skateboarding bigger than what it actually is is always the reason skate movies are cringe, unrelateable, and suck dick. it's made for normies or tryhards who have lost what made them originally get addicted to sakteboarding... just skateboarding.
how to ollie?

>>164054i met her once. i was too nervous to talk to her or look at her skate too much bc i had a crush on her. before i met her i had already checked out her instagram. i think she has decent style but i don't think she's pro level. I think its more wack that she didn't even have a video part before she went pro. but i guess that's just the times. I personally don't mind setting the bar lower for women, its a sport and i'm all for more women skating but i think to become pro, you have to at least jump through the hoops of establishing yourself with video parts and contests. But at the end of the day, skateboard teams are all marketing to get you to buy products. It doesn't really matter. Just keep buying what you think is cool
>>165038>>waters his plants with a plastic jug of water instead of a garden hosekek, good bait
>>165170ollie, how to
>>165170don't think, just do.
damn when did dan corrigan upgrade his gf after upgrading his teeth
>>165170keep front foot below bolts and pop with your back foot. It might be easier to learn stationary first
>>165190Arin is a man you literal faggot
>>1651701. pop2. draw the owl
which pants are sturdy and last the longest while being the cheapest?
>>165170Here's an autistic, reddit-style breakdown routine you can follow that might get you results (because I did this and it worked). This assumes you haven't got perfect basics/foundations yet, but are fairly comfortable on your board, like you can ride around, push comfortably, roll off small curbs, that kind of stuff. Do 3x practice sessions a week for about half an hour to an hour, or more if you're young and fit. First, practice doing tail stops and being 100% comfortable with putting that back leg down while raising your front slightly. When you can do that without fear, try little hops (hippy jumps) on your board and be comfortable landing back on without bailing or feeling unsteady. Remember when you jump to keep you shoulders in line with the board at all times and don't overstretch upwards like you're jumping to shoot in baskeball. Start with a slight squat, do a knee tuck style jump and land into a slight squat, which should keep you safe. Once you can do that add the pop of the tail to the little jump. The timing here is important and will take you a bit to feel it out - Ben explains it best here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZhMXWkPsWw&t. Once you can do a stationary rocket ollie without feeling like you're gonna die, add the front foot slide. Again, the above video talks about how little is actually needed for that slide. If you're putting them all together, you should now be doing an ollie. Do it rolling as soon as you have the balls to, even at a snails pace, and work up to moderate speed. For rolling it will feel weird again at first, but just make sure you do a few stationary practice attempts with good form to have the feeling fresh in your mind, then just go for it. The number one thing that may fuck you up is balance and feeling like you're going to slip out and die. The only cure is to practice and commit. Here's a webm for visualising form and inspiration. Good luck.
>>165256degros has a sicck frontside flip too
>>165248i need an autistic reddit breakdown on tail stopping.
>>165259Sure. Stand on your board in your normal stance, back foot on the tail. Transfer 95% of your weight onto your back leg so it pushes the tail down towards the ground, your back leg will become straight. Allow your front leg to follow the motion the front of the board makes, it will rise slightly as the angle changes, just let it happen and your knee will bend. You might feel awkward at first because it feels like you will slip out, but just do it fast as you can, don't hesitate. If you can manual at all, you can do it slow if you want and should have no issues - experiement with both as you get more comfortable. Now start rolling slowly and do the same motion to come to a stop. You can lean forward slightly to counteract the shift to your forward momentum that may cause you to be thrown off balance. Try not to let yourself lean back too much, always go with the momentum of the board. Keep doing this and get faster as you feel more comfortable. Enjoy scraping all your tail away on the ground. Try it with some heel if your prefer to ruin your shoes instead.

which youtubers does /esg/ watch?
>>165267I used to watch black ninja but he's been cringe for a very long time now. I just watch ricer miata these days. A little bit of bryan arnett and freddy sanchez here and there.
>>165267>youtubersthis is why you guys will never have friends
>>164513Which is strange since skateboarding is selling at an all-time high
>>165267Who do you recommend?
>>165260I just tried to do a couple of tail stops and failed all of them. The last one was the worst one; I somehow fell forward right on the rocky pavement. My elbow and wrists are bleeding, and the bone of my thumb is sticking out a slight bit. I thought this was supposed to be a simple beginner "trick", desu.
>>165296Tail stopping is bad for your deck anyway. Quick way to lose all your pop.>the bone of my thumb is sticking out a slight bitFuck bro that's brutal. Post a pic?
>>165299It's not that noticeable, but you can see it's a little swollen, and I can definitely feel it. I can't hold shit with that hand anymore. >>165300skateboarding is hard, senpai
>>165301I thought you meant your bone broke the skin. That doesn't look bad. Just wrap it with tape or ace bandage.
>>165304>bone broke the skinThat would've mentally scarred me from skateboarding for at least a few months, but yeah it ain't bad. I think in a couple of days maybe even a week it'll heal.
>>165299i want to ride more casually on side walks so i need any trick that will stop me from run bailing into a baby stroller
>>165310Try speed checks/powerslides. They look and feel cooler. You can always drag your pushing foot too.
>>165301the fuck is this? what am I looking at? wheres the injury?
>>165314>if i can't see it, it's not thereretard
>>165301This sums up this general perfectly
>>165315nah nigga your a fucking baby. stop skating now, your gonna get hurt a lot worse than whatever boo boo you got going on currently.
>>165317Which part?>>165318The fall didn't deter me from skateboarding, desu. I'm just pissed that I failed at such an easy trick.
>>165319see >>165305>>bone broke the skin>That would've mentally scarred me from skateboarding for at least a few monthsyou said the bone from your thumb was sticking out a bit, the experienced skaters in here would take that in a completely different way than the pic you were so happy to post. you ever gotta a bloody nose before?
>>165325You're just being a faggot now. I wasn't "happy" to post that pic, he just asked for one, and I said okay. I didn't know that he thought the bone was sticking out. You're not cool for showing off to a newbie.
>>165326how old are you dickhead
>>165328lol i was expecting you to be like 30. I knew kids who broke multiple bones before they were even 18 and kept skating or riding bikes or whatever the fuck they were doing. your a gigantic pussy and should go eat some real shit.
i knew a kid who lost his leg riding motorcross, got one of those prosthetics and kept riding, lost his other leg, know what hes doing today? riding motorcross.
>>165248have this gold, fine sir
>>163834switching over to a 10 in board was the best thing i ever did, size 13 feet
>>165341how the fuck do you flip a 10?i just got an 8.25 and whilst it's way comfier for my large feet i'm finding it a struggle to even pop shuv, if i try the same shit on a 7.75 it spins like a beybladei am still a beginner though
>>164536should i get some?
>>165170one of the best ways to learn i think is to imagine the physics of it, visualize why the board is doing that in response to what your body is doing to the board. another tip is you are throwing the back tail into the ground and using that as a 'launch pad', you must be in the air before the tail pops off the ground
>>165296>>165301I can't even imagine what the fuck you were doing to end up in this state (if this is even real at all knowing this genreal). Make sure you are comfortable getting into the position stationary before you try at speed. Do you want an even more autistic breakdown of how to safely practice?
>>165306I remember this.
>>165330Saw two kids in wheelchairs doing fucking backflips at my local before. Was sick as fuck.
>>165296Ooof, dang, have done similar before. Don't forget to drop your weight/bend knees/keep centre of balance low. Sounds like you were too top heavy and came to a stop faster than you thought, wound up lurching forward and falling.Personally I usually slow myself down by just dragging my pushing foot. If I want to come to a total stop I do a sort of tail drag, but I use my toe to touch the ground rather than my heel, which will normally make me rotate. That or I do a sort of no comply pressure pop thing and send the board into my hands so I can walk away, but that's usually at slower speeds and when I want to keep walking forward.
Protip: do your tail skid thingys on your nose so it looks like you skate switch
>>165366i would lose my god damn mind seeing that
Why are so many anons scraping their tails? It looks dumb and you are shortening the life of your deck.
>>165429it looks cool but i'll never start doing it. i all the free pop i can get
>>165366holy shit thanks for sharing, I've never heard about this in my life but it's an actual thinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O01hBD9fexYthis video was so wholesome i almost cried
>>165346You just automatically adjust to it without realizing it, I hopped on my friends 8 in whatever board and I flipped it like crazy
>>165448You caught me, my post had nothing to do with skateboarding
I'm too scared to do anything besides just riding, how do I overcum this fear, bros?
Make a new thread faggotTail scrape edition
>>165435>>165392It was sick. They were no older than 13, hauling ass around Bay Sixty6 alongside the skaters. The flips are super fast too.
>>165454try growing a pair? LOL
>>165454>overcumJust ride until you feel comfortable enough. Start doing little manuals and getting your balance down.
>>165459a pair of what?
>>165454We need to see you riding to see how comfy you are on your board. If you're afraid to even attempt a trick you're probably not ready to.
>>165454Ride gnarlier shit. Bowls, ramps, off curbs, down hills, weird lumpy paths that you have to do lots of manoeuvres around to not eat shit.
>>165454>how do I overcum this fear, bros?bro, you just need to cum over the fear
>>165499>Each sealed blind bag contains one 8" randomly assorted variant skateboard featuring an iconic Pokémon character.>This includes 15 holo foil variants featuring a different character printed over silver prismatic rainbow glitter foil and silver metallic paint.>Plus, 5 special gold foil edition variants featuring black and metallic gold ink over metallic gold foil.as if santa cruz wasnt already the worst company
>>163834Might be, I’m 6’ and foot size 11.5, my first board I got a few months ago was an 8Managed to get a free 8.5 deck, and put it together with spare parts, im pretty sure it feels a bit more stable than my 8 inches and turns better (that might be the trucks but idk)Might look into swapping some parts between them to see if the bigger board makes shit easier for me
>>165507what's the message you're trying to convey
Why does Chloe sevigny have a board/endorsements with FA? Does that bitch even know how to skate?
>>165536Dill is obsessed with telling everyone he knows some 90's nyc it-girl. She's always been some retarded groupie hanging around the supreme crowd>>165537an actress who sucked off the director and swallowed cum on film in a movie called brown bunny. it was panned by basically everyone but she still maintains it's high art lol
>>165536>>165547She was part of the crew, she played in the movie KIDS. She also narrated the skate docu "deathbowl to dogtown" which is one of the most interesting skate docus
>>165548The rumors always been the sex scene at the end of kids wasn't simulated. Like I said, just some dumb groupie who hung around the 90s nyc skate scene. Why exactly dill and fat bill are obsessed with her i couldn't tell you. Probably because they're all just weirdly obsessed with harmony korine
>>165346>how the fuck do you flip a 10?You can do anon. Those really wide shaped boards are sometimes a bit shorter and have a a smaller wheelbase. If you can kickflip on your regular board you can for sure do it on a wide one.
today i learned my front ankle was doing a light flick/turn during the leveling out was the root problem of my ollies turning frontside. everyone saying its shoulders/hips owes me a year of stunted progress.
>>165559People just assume you aren't clinically retarded so they just go to the most obvious and probable solution.
>>165564methinks you arent that insightful or skilled if all you know is a cliche answer...
>>165565Methinks I'm not your dad and I'm not obliged to teach you anything.
>>164227>>165559I didn't realise I was doing this til I went to ollie over something. Realised I need to stay more square over my board. It wasn't really shoulders or legs or anything but just keeping my whole body more parallel. I also think just being comfy on your board, that it's a bit of a mental/safety thing. I'll go a couple months off the board and then try pick up where I left off.No clips because I realised what I need to work on and it's a bit embarrassing. Also tried the heelflip advice and they felt so much more comfy when i keep my feet more centred pre trick. Keeping my back foot centred eliminated that rotation I was getting.
move on over you lazy little girls you >>165590>>165590
