Bad weather incoming edition old bread >>171708
>>174222>last night i had a really scary slip out. i dont remember how i caught the board that caused the slip out so either i bopped my head and my vision went black>im kinda just freaked out how i dont have any sign of head injury>but still dont remember shit how the slip out happened.You have a concussion anon. That you're even slightly unsure of what happened and that your vision went funny, if just for a moment, is a classic sign. I happen to be an expert on this subject, I've had 4 concussions already and one was so bad I was rushed straight to the hospital :DDD
>people of Tsociety are running for their livesCan we agree that whoever liked Pennywise after 13 is an asshole?
Also Raybourn has a really great interview that just came outhttps://chromeballincident.blogspot.com/2023/10/chrome-ball-interview-168-ben-raybourn.htmlHe was always one of my favorites
new thrasher mag came with a cool newspaper print pic thing of the FA skate jam :o
I love SkateMoss so much
Why are Baker decks the best seller? Was there something I missed?
Holy shit this thread sucks so far
>>174268yeah raybourn rules>>174281stop posting faggot berrics videos you fucking scientologist shill >>174286bams whatever but bro don't you have your own thread, post him skating and not these weirdly gay pictures
>>174268I thought Chromeball had stopped renewing itself
>>174328No he still does the web interview sometimes, but the more serious interviews on the older pros are running in Closer magazine now.
Any experience on snowskates?Should I get one for easier access to training?
>>174398>snowskatesI had one growing up, but I preferred just skating in parking garages
Anybody else was a drug addict or is it just me
>>174415Not a full on addict, but there was a couple of years when myself and all of my skate buddies stopped skating to drink and smoke and used too many mushrooms AlsoI passed by a local shop today. Spitfires are now all 50 dollars. Who do they think they are?
>>174423Why didn't you skate while drinking and shrooming? Sounds like skating isn't in your veins
>>174415Hard drugs? No.I typically smoke a spliff after warming up.
>head shop offered 5% off total purchase to beat high score>38k> got 77k>get 10% off>buy set of royals for $45 and some incense
>>174415No, drugs are the gayest thing in the fucking universe and anyone who makes a personality of it is a gigantic faggot.
no hard drugs, no booze, just good ol devil lettuce
Good board brand for heavier dudes?
>>174436That looks like a cool shop. What game is this?
>>174436Man I love incense.
>>174436lmao thats amazing! nice work anon.
Do you guys like the style of skating in the new Heroin videohttps://vimeo.com/880631109Or do you guys like the style in this new Killing Floor promo more? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCCMTmy6z40Or maybe you even like both
I done fucked up.The most basic shit did me in.Simple ollie.Heard and felt a pop.Hoping it isn't broken. FUCK!I may be done skateboarding for good as I can't take large amounts of time off work.
>>174550>Hoping it isn't brokenbro lolalso nice feet
>>174553Only a slight difference.Wife is pissed. Been telling me for 2 yrs I was going to get hurt. I knew I would eventually but not on a fucking ollie. Pissed at myself.
>>174555That's fucked. You gonna get it x-rayed?
>>174556Yeah, waiting for the swelling to go down to see a sports Dr tomorrow and see how it feels.>>174558Rice? Explain.
>>174559lay down, put the leg above the heart, get a bag of peas or (ice that youve thrown against the counter top in a bag two or three times) hold it till its so fucking cold you cant stand it, then compression bandage and put the ice over bandage
https://youtu.be/zUs8GTIkrjE?t=315>nollie back foot impossible backside 180now that's an ultimate
>>174482maybe globe since they use epoxy, or anyone who uses epoxy idk
Worst scooter experience?

Old school shaped decks are fun but I can never find the right trucks foe them
i concussed myself off a rolling shuvit on flatim retarded now and want to kill myself
>>174666fall better next time or wear a helmet my man
>>174666>i concussed myself off a rolling shuvit on flatHow? Did you slip out and fall backwards? How heavy are you? I'm sorry that happened. >im retarded now and want to kill myselfYou should keep skating
>>174636for me i use a 159 indie winkowski on my 10 inch old school
Its it okay to skate outside after the rain?
>>174703No, if youre found doing so you will be stripped and beaten
>>174703That's how I tore my knee up and ruined my life.
Like literally my life has been fully ruined ever since then. I almost still feel like I'm living in a nightmare that I should wake up from soon. Except I'm not waking up.
>>174703might ruin your bearings
>>174711Do you even want to still skateboard or are you just still addicted to the culture like me
>>174710>That's how I tore my knee up and ruined my life.how?
>>174716I think about skating every day. A few weeks ago I walked by some kids skating and I couldn't resit being that one cringe "I used to skate too" kook and asked them to try a board. Landed some tricks too, which baited me into thinking I can skate again, but my knee hurt for a week straight after. Didn't even jump any stairs.>>174740>wagecuck>had no time to skate for two whole weeks>frustrated with the gay wageslave life went skating ASAP>starts raining literally as I'm done warming up>summer and hot so I'm like fuck this>I NEED to skate>rain stops after 20 minutes, wait for another 30 to dry out because it was hot as hell>get impatient and start skating in the wet regardless>do a baby front 180 up a manny pad>I don't pivot my 180s, I fully rotate>I also have new wheels (fuck bones) and that combined with the wet results in a powerslide in the opposite direction of where my momentum is>left (popping leg) knee gets twisted like a bitch and snaps>it's overYou can imagine that if I fully rotate my 180 and stomp it into a powerslide, but was going fast at the same time, the forward momentum, combined with the sideways momentum form powersliding, and my legs being planted to the board, since I'm fucking sliding and can't bail out, would result in my knee getting twisted in a way it shouldn't twist. If I was a pivot faggot this wouldn't have happened. I would have powerslid forward and fallen on my ass.
>>174683>How? Did you slip out and fall backwards? How heavy are you?i landed straight legged and slipped out. i thought id catch myself with a hip landing but im a noob still and was unprepared to skate on smooth concrete with 101d wheels. the asphalt and rougher concrete i usually skate on let me feel if the board is going in a direction sooner than just doing it if that makes sense. im only 155.
>>174550Is it broken though? It just looks like a very bad sprain? Take a month off you'll be fine
>>174550If you haven't already, go to a fucking dr, man. If you heard a pop it could also be ligaments/tendons tearing, not just a break. You do not want to find out later that you can't walk properly anymore, while also knowing it could have been prevented if you had just gotten it checked out.
>>174555Go to the doctor. If that heals with an improper set you're going to walk fucked up the rest of your life.Messed up feet leads to bad: knees, hips, lower and upper back.Go to the doctor faggot.
>>174772Damn, that sounds brutal. I appreciate the breakdown. I recently sprained my foot to the point I couldn't walk for a couple days. I had it looked at and luckily didn't have any serious issues. Similar to you I was too eager to skate. I didn't warm up like usual and tweaked my foot landing primo on a kickflip over a kicker to kicker. I'm still recovering and I find myself thinking about injury a lot more. I'm desperate to get back on my board, but stories like yours and others have me thinking about how better to approach it to reduce my risk of injury.>>174779How bad was the concussion? I've never hit the back of my head skating. I did tear up my lip faceplanting when I had braces as a teenager though. It's crazy how quickly the ground can come at you if you aren't prepared for it.
>>174828I'm glad your shit wasn't serious bro. At least you tried more of a real trick than me. I got my life ruined on a eyes closed warmup trick. To make it worse it was the worst pain I've felt. That shit hurt insanely bad and I swear I'm no bitch. I'm staying there holding my knee rolling on the ground in pain and literally nobody in the entire park gave a shit. Just one kid came to leave me my board and that was it. After probably a whole minute of squirming like worm I got up and some faggot had the audacity to tell me to just rub on it. I'm in shock still and almost fainted. Hobbled over to a bench and sat there for like 10 minutes. It hurt a lot but it kind of lessened and I thought it wasn't that bad. I couldn't accept it was literally over. Fully delusional still, probably have a high tolerance to pain idk. I hobble over to my car and drove to the store to get groceries before going home. I didn't my shopping in the store leaning on the card and riding it basically. My knee got super fucking warm so that was covering the pain a bit and I thought I was maybe ok. I don't wear skinny pants and at the register I notice that my left knee is entirely filling my pant. I go home and take them off, my knee is swollen like a bitch. I sit down for a bit thinking I'll decide if I need a doctor in the morning before it started hurting like a literal bitch again and I noticed my range of motion is literally fucked. I drove myself to the ER and a nurse saw me get out of my car asking me what happened. Dude straight up said nah bro I can tell it's bad, you shouldn't be walking, and put me on a stroller straight away. Worst day of my life probably./blog
>>174836>I didn't my shopping in the store leaning on the cardLiterally stressing so bad I type like I'm having a stroke lmao.
>>174828physical exam says im fine and my ct found no bleeding so im not dying which is alright. the first two days i felt intense depersonalization thinking my previous memories werent real and sense of time just flying by which slowly is getting better. the last 4 days my focus and attention is noticeable worse making be constantly backtrack and im talking like i just woke up.
I already quit skating but these stories make me never want to step on a board again, especially since I have no insurance
>>174856Want me to make it worse? I'm a yuropoor and we have "free healthcare". In the ER they just drained all the blood from my knee with a bigass needle, which was a nightmare mind you, then gave me some pain killers, anti inflammatory pills, and crutches (my ROM was near zero). Next day I call the free healthcare shit to get an appointment set up. Woman on the phone probably left bad or I don't know because I sounded like I'm done with life. She set me up at the most expensive clinic in town (allegedly the best). I go there in a few days to get checked. Dude goes yeah it's fucked, you need an MRI. I go at a third party clinic for an MRI, which takes ages of you staying still in a coffin basically. I go to the clinic with the scans CD for a second checkup. Doctor acting sus as hell. Talking about how he can't open the file, how the image is too blurry, how this place where I got my MRI scan was trash, and he can't diagnose me. Then he did some retarded tests on my knee. Retard literally started twisting it. Hurt like a bitch. I'm sitting there all demoralized and trusting this faggot, but then I get a grip and tell this bitch to stop. Starts talking about how it's fucked, about knee replacement surgery, transplants from cadavers, new treatment, first in the country, only their clinic does it, etc. I call the health insurance org again demanding another doctor at a different place. Had to argue on the phone for like an hour and sweet talk this bitch until she gave in. I go to the other place. New doctor opens the MRI scan file with no issues, everything is perfectly visible. I tell him what the other guy did, what he said, and the retardedass tests he did on my knee. This fucking faggot literally lied about the diagnose, and the MRI, and tried to tear my knee up even more by twisting it, and also lied about the treatment. He basically wanted to coerce me into doing some experimental shit so he can get a shit ton of money and also use me as a test subject.
>>174860For a long time I genuinely thought about getting a ski mask or some shit and jumping that first faggot somewhere with a bat. Deadass breaking both of his kneecaps, but then I got over it after a while. Lyingass faggot piece of shit I hope he gets hit by a truck. I fucking hate doctors.
>>174861Damn son all I have to say is lol
I was lurking slap and some tranny wants to cut their dick off, that place is fucked
>>174860Holy shit, that's fucked. I don't even know what to say. I'm sorry that happened to you. I thought American healthcare was grim. A lot of medical professionals are money grubbing assholes.
>doompostingFuck, I’m quitting skateboarding tonight. I’m 36 and my insurance is awful. Don’t want to risk it.
>>174398If you want to do anything with a snowskate, u have to get an expensive high quality (ambition) snowskate with the extra grip. Its also quite the learning curve. It took me a season to get used to mine but they are kinda fun
>>174882Allegedly American healthcare is the best in the world, albeit very expensive. Don't know for sure, but in general the people that are attracted to the doctor's profession are typically self absorbed psychos. Hurr durr I just wanna save lives and help people. Like no bitch all you want is money and will even go as far as to cutting penises of skaters that go to slap, just to make a shekel. Don't even get me started on dentists. Have you guys seen how many people, especially Americans, walk around with fucked up jaws because they were coerced into wearing braces as kids, when they literally had no need to? People with awkward as shit mouth movements when they speak. Drooling all over the place, being unaware of their saliva strings. I'm glad I never fell for the braces scam. It's literally only for people with fucked up teeth or jaws.
Yo I forgot about BATB. Apparently we're in the finals soon. Rooting for our guy Nick Holt aka Nick Bolts. Shout out Majer Crew (RIP).
if you dont wanna get hurt fuck off
>>174926>Rooting for our guy Nick HoltStop it
>>174952I know you want me to root for reddit's guy Jamie but I refuse. Tyler I don't care about. It's not 1962 I can't root for Cole.
>>174954Jamie was a neet who smoked weed all day and learnt autistic flip tricks in his ted shed
>>174964Weed is reddit.
>>174907Don't quit bro. Just be smart.
Now a slap mod also wants to cut their dick off
>>174991link to thread?
>>174992It's the queer thread that's fucking stickied to the front pageThat place used to be fun r.i.p.
>>175000>It's the queer threadi mean, what do you expect them to be discussing?
>>175030Normal gay shit. There's a big difference between being queer and wanting to cut your dick off
>>175038True. The latter is becoming more common unfortunately.
>>174867>>174991>>174992>>175000>>175038>reppers have nothing better to do with their sad lives than constantly lurk and obsess over what they know they can never beMany such cases!
>>175064What does reppers even mean in this context
>>174860So the second place got you fixed up, right? Or you just felt happy that they said the pictures were ok?Cadaver transplant is totally common. Surgery is the only thing that can make your knee not torn.
i was at the park today and i was just goiing decently fast and i fell off somehow and hit my entire right side of my body on the mini out ledge stair thing at a pretty good speed how do i know if my rib is broken :( really dont want to take a break and i cant believe something so small and stupid did this
Advice for doing an ollie as a big fat retard?>>175079How bad does it hurt? Is it bruising bad? Does touching it fuck you up? I'm Euro so i'd say go to doctor but if you're something else maybe just go up to firefighter or someone with medical training.
>>175091>Advice for doing an ollie as a big fat retard?It's not different for you because you're fat, retard.
>>174860>I'm a yuropoor and we have "free healthcare"Looks like not for long, un-fucking-fortunately. What did you expect, magic pills that heal you?
>>175103I don't know but what I expect from you is not to be a retarded slaggot on 4chan. Retardedass post. Why did you even reply with this?
>>174231>Anon, if you see a girl fall (like a real fall, eating shit and probably injured) when skating, how does that make you feel? What is your immediate reaction? Is it any different than when you see a guy fall?
>>174231sounds dumb, but i think my skating has suffered significantly when i stop trying to do lines
>>175155I saw a girl eat total shit in the bowl, I told her to just lay there for a while but I think she thought i was making fun of her because started trying to get up right after, anyway she hobbled over to her car and that was the last time she came to the skatepark. Bummer cause she was black as fuck and I wanted to bone. If you ever want to pick up a girl at the skatepark just tell her she has a sick style
>>175165Lines are the best. I always land tricks more consistently if I do lines over and over. It makes the repetition in mastering tricks easier for me.
>>175165Of cocaine you mean?
whats stopping me from beating the resellers and buying fake jordan 1s and LARPing as caballero in the bowl?
>>175064post a tranny who is actually good at skating and ill do it for real this time
>>174231there's no such thing as bad weather just pussy bitches
Is anyone here actually sponsored?
maybe you weebs will actually watch this Aussie vidhttps://youtu.be/wqIBG58wayc?si=wuVoP5aPCq7Bfszi
Is element any good anymore? Read a reddit post that guy skated a element complete for two hours and its snapped at the back tail and element warranty wont cover it lmao
>>175218With Elements you are safe with pro models or whatever collab boards they're doing. Some Element boards are Walmart quality so I honestly try not to fuck with them unless one of the above mentioned is at a very good price.
>>175218Only if you get the actual "serious" boards. The little kid completes are not meant for anyone other than small children. The use BBS or a Chinese factory that is actually pretty good for the pro boards.
>>175213>there's no such thing as bad weatherI'm not trying to get a waterlogged board from rain or snow. I will be skating in parking garages though. Maybe an indoor park if there are any that aren't totally packed.
Guys look at this its p coolhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InqjYweaDbM
>>175338Sick video. The shoes are a bit odd looking
>>175344oh god I just saw them. WHAT is this thing???https://emerica.com/collections/footwear/products/romero-skater-silver-6102000137-040
>>175190tried it in real jordan 1s and man its so fucking comfy, dudes knew what they were doing when they wore them
>>175347I could see myself skating the black ones. It looks like the silver shoes are limited quantity and signed by Leo Romero.
I wear Adidas when I skate. More specifically, Yeezys.
>>175347If I only had some shoes...
>>174926Chris Cole will win
>>175380Better him than the other guys
I saw an Andy Anderson doppelganger at the park today. Dude would yell angrily every time he didn't land his trick

>>175434Bout to drink up some kratom right now doggy
>>175448When I'm geeked off the maeng da? that's the real me
>>175447Who exactly do you take issue with?
>>175450Everyone and everything I already layd it out little man literally no one had good swag especially compared to insta kids we need Rockstar in skating the kids need to have idols to worship
>>175452>we need Rockstar in skatingAre you the Bam poster?
>>175454You know if more people agreed with me instead of being condescending faggots skating would be a lot cooler. Name one rockstar level skater for zoomers there's none, maybe tyshawn but he's not that cool
>>175452>everything I already layd it out little man literally no one had good swag especially compared to insta kids we need Rockstarare you a boomer from a third world country?
this general is so shit all of you kill yourself i doubt any of you even skate
>>175465i skated today
>>175468Me too. I'm going to the park tomorrow, you guys can come if you want.
first time I've rub bricked and lacquered a curb. turned out real nice. probably had about 10 sessions on it now.
Remember bros, style always mattershttps://youtu.be/RqzVhIPq6dU?si=OEwX3nLVyYHZSWRP&t=2035
>>175470That looks like a beautiful curb
>>175465I skated from 97-2022 it was a good run. Can anybody beat my score?
>>175552I will eventually because I don't plan on stopping
>>175553That's what I said too
>>175470It looks great. Nice work anon.

>Nick skunked Andy>Jamie about to skunk Nick
>>175552Why’d you stop?

>>175552I started on 98 and entered in a hiatus when the pandemic begun in 2020, now I'm married and i have no plans to skate regularly, maybe I'll return when I get too fat.>captcha:yyyyh
>>175602damn, it will probably be Jamie winning these competitions for years now. Glad that other faggot didn't win though
Kinda bummed our guy Nick lost. He choked big time though. Bro has zero dawg.
Is Elissa Steamer actually a girl
>>175642Can confirm she actually is a girl.
>>175622Because that shit turns kinda gay in your 30s, it really should become gay in your 20s but I'm autistic
>>175656nah, it's just you man.see: leo romero, rune glifberg
>>175656Classic cope. You probably just got lazy and fat.
I can't think of a single time where I was too lazy to skate.
>>175657>>175662There is no cope shit is just gay now what am I supposed to do something I don't want to just because "skate for life bro", nah fuck that
>>175675skate culture is corny as fuck but it's still a good form of exercise, thats how i look at it now. im almost 30 too so i get it
>>175669it'll hit you when you get older. i treat it like going to the gym like >>175679 said. hardest part is getting your ass to the park.
>>175679Skate culture is just a bunch of terrible zoomer memes and Rage With The Machine politics

Is 28 too old to get back into skateboardingThe last time I skated was from 13 years ago
Has any based ESG anon made a 2024 printable pdf skate calendar with some cool inspiring images they wouldn't mind sharing? Maybe we could contribute images/ideas and some attention to detail/shoop Chads could knock something up in a pdf anons could print out with 12 months/12 images. Thinking like A4 portrait mode top half cool image and bottom half each month. Maybe some ESG branding lol. I would have just bought one for like equivalent of 20 bucks or whatever (if it wasn't like 30 bucks for (((shipping/duty calculated at checkout on jbay))) as no such thing is for sale in my country. Cheers.
fuck how do I do reverts or slide the boardmy wheels are 92a and it just feels like they're stuck to concrete should I be like doing a minijump to partially unweight the board?
>>175733use 99a or 101a wheels and see how easy it suddenly becomes.
>>175728I am 29 and i went out skating one time and pulled my musclestill can't skate a month laterjust be careful and warm up real good
its almost two weeks now after my concussion and my insomnia still hasnt went away. doctor gave me an antipsychotic called quetiapine for sleep and all the side effects and stories about it dont seem positive, so i used benadryl instead but that isnt good either for sleep. i thought i would be skating again soon but my brains perma fucked instead.
>>175732I made a personal /esg/ calendar and it's all pictures of that fat brown dude who posts here
>>175747>my concussion and my insomnia still hasnt went away. >doctor gave me an antipsychotic dude wtf
>>175759canadian doctors are demonic vassals for pharmaceutical companies is what id say if i had real schizophrenia.the pill did work at knocking me out. its my brain not working by slowing my heart during rest
this thread is legit terrifying, im only 18 but if i had to quit for good in the next 10-20 years due to injury id probably kill myself, i have nothing going for me and i spent the last decade falling in love with a sport i can’t even get a scholarship off of but it’s cool.
>>175768Yeah I feel like kms every single day. It's been like 3 years since IT happened and I still crave skateboarding every day.
>>175768If it's any consolation, I'm 29 and haven't had to be off my board for more than a week or two for a sprain. Just keep yourself healthy as you age.
>>175749Ha. Got a link?
>>175711I'll just post more 2023 full lengths thenhttps://youtu.be/FJ1rCxxxS9Q?si=IDhaPtpMLfBLXdt4
>>175733yes actually on the minijumps
>>174593>0 repliesscooters are cool confirmed
>>175800I typically only see kids on scooters, so they get a pass for being oblivious cause they're kids. In general I think "serious" scootering looks really silly. It's also magnitudes easier to get good at than skating, bmx, or fruit booting. Skatepark denizens go other Skaters >> BMXers >>> Fruitbooters >>>>>>> ScootersThat said, I typically only go to parks in the morning or early afternoon on weekdays, so I only ever have to deal with 2 or 3 people.
>>17573392a is kinda nearing "softish" territory also pic related, its me
>>175802Bikefags snake me far more than anyone else, and they have the exact same skill level as scooters. There are only so many ways you can ride a bike, same with scooters.
>>175817Yeah, maybe I don't fully grasp the difficulty gap between the two. I just think BMX looks cooler than blading or scootering. There honestly isn't many bikers at any of the parks I go to so I haven't been snaked by them.
slap server is down. that place is beyond cucked but at least their threads dont move like molasses
>>175819I hacked them.
>>175768Almost 34 and the only real difference is I need to workout and stretch now when before I went 15+ years without either. But I found I enjoy that stuff too so it's no biggie. Seems you either take the healthy route once your body starts to wear and tear or become a bum.

Glad to see you lads are still posting here, dont live anywhere skatable anymore, but as I've gotten back in shape I'm gonna pull the board out again before I hit 30... Hopefully.
>>175893Good luck and make sure to watch out for the knee goblins.
tyler peterson has to be one of the most disgusting guys ever. I'm glad Griffin beat him.
>>175912Griffin is disgusting too though. He looks like he smells like cheese and weed.
>>175924>He looks like he smells like cheese and weed.lmaoALSOyou big goobers, Primitive beats the other companies to the punch by starting their sales earlyhttps://primitiveskate.com/collections/deck-saleboards under 30 dollars, this is a good time to stock up. especially when some other companies are selling decks for 80+
>>175926Primitive has reddit graphics though and I can't skate an ugly board. It either has to be cool as heck or a black. No ugly shit.
>>175927just buy it and sand off the graphic with excess griptape, ive done that before.
>>175931Nah I don't need it. I don't even skate anymore.
Does anyone have any opinions on 99a dragon wheels and how they feel vs formula 4's? Kinda wanna try em but I have no complaints with F4's so idk if the internet hype is just marketing or organic enthusiasm
>>175938>>175939woa your organic post wasn't up when i started writing my post that contained the word organic what the hell is going on
>>175938>>175939>>175940um what the
>>175941Are you the poster that wants to be a fox? I've seen you on other boards
>>175944>Are you the poster that wants to be a fox?no way wtf. i just stole that picture from /an/
>>175939ben degros did a review on them and they screech like nails on a chalkboard. no thank you
>>175949post a video
>>175951What was the post
>>175954someone asking how to ollie
If any beginner anon wants an autistic breakdown of the best way to learn how to ollie, let me know. I've been through the process over the last year, going from shit, unstable ollies to ollies that I often get compliments for. I took notes along the way and would be happy to sum them up for desperate anons looking for a routine to follow that will get you there. It's all still fresh in my mind, so I still remember all the dumb mistakes that stopped my progress and I might be able to explain how to fix it, and probbaly do it better than people who have it nailed and just tell you to commit.
no but seriously it won't stop raining
skating is so much more exciting in a big city. I can't move out for another year at least. shit suckst. middleofnowhere cuck
>>175971Agreed desu. The downtown spots are always a million times better. Think of the marble plazas...
My advice for young people is to quit skateboarding and find a hobby that makes money, like coding or carpentry or some shit, the sooner you do the better off you'll be
>>175973lmao fuck off
Do you guys have tips on avoiding injuries? Late 20s and starting to feel it. Just been skating for about 1 year
>>175991Stretch and stretch constantly?
>>175973Terrible advice. Young people should be exploring life to it's maximum while they can. As you age your free time dwindles and responsibilities pile up. When they finally are in the grind they'll have a hobby to fall back on and enjoy.>find hobby that makes moneyDumb. For monetary independence young people should focus on any consistent pay check and learn how to budget and invest now, so in 10 years they can reap the rewards of what the rest of us didn't do. There is no reason an 15 yr old can't flip burgers for 10 years and be a millionaire by 25.
>>175991starting to feel what? knee pain? back pain?wear good shoe insoles like sofsole orthotic or the vans popcushdon't get greedy with tricksprogress iteratively don't skip stepstake video of yourself and analyze what to improve onlearn to powerslide if you havent already, both frontside and backside, on various surfaces to get a sense of how much force to apply to lose and regain traction. you will learn to respect slick surfaces and ride them with caution
>>175993I do normal stretches since I play other sports and hit the gym occasionally (mostly upper body). Are there any key or niche stretches I must know?>>175995 I fell and hurt my knee. Also the shin pain is bad but it’s temporary. I changed vans to hi and it has really helped my ankle. What about as for falling? How to fall better? AlsoWhen olling down higher surfaces what would you recommend to protect the ankle?
>>175996>What about as for falling? How to fall better? most skaters who know how to fall optimally wont be able to tell you how, because they started so young that it's purely innate muscle memory.since you started past your teens i would recommend practicing whatever they teach in parkour, so id watch a bunch of parkour videos or go to a beginner parkour meetup and emulate what they doif you can stomach it, go to the hallofmeat instagram and learn from mistakes people make there. it's an underrated resource because people make a LOT of the same mistakes. one example is opening your shoulders forward when doing a 360 flip, and when they land towards the front of the board they zoosh out and whack their head. if they never opened their shoulders they would have fallen on their arm instead. sweep your spot clean of any pebbles if you're gonna do drops. >what would you recommend to protect the ankle?learn how to kick your board away from you so you don't land back on it. that's how most ankle injuries happen, when your foot expects to land on a flat surface but gets nudged by your board being in the way.
I wear a size 13, is an 8.25 ideal? About to bite the bullet on one of these
>>176010Literally why would you buy this ugly soulless reddit piece of shit?
>>176018Neck yourself you dumb retard
>>176019I just know you're an autistic unwashed and unshaved fat fuck with your size 13 ogre feet and zero knowledge on skateboarding gear.
>>176020You're just mad that you have an incredibly small penis.
>>176021Your auntie said I'm the biggest she's had.
>>176018Stop using reddit as a buzzword
>>176026It's not a buzzword, dumb ESL. Powell is in fact reddit.
>>176029Uh-huh. And what boards do you ride, poser
>>176030You're the poser. I ride creature. One of the 4chan approved brands.
>>176032>He's legitimately worried about something as worthless as a 4chan seal of approvalHow to tell me you're underage without actually saying it
>>176033Nobody asked you, slaggot. Go back.
>>176034Lol caught, underage
>>176035Don't you have forum threads about cutting your penis to take care of right now?
>>176036I accept your concession.
>>176037What am I conceding? You being a slap tranny? Sure.
>>176032>4chan approved brands.your brain is melting. you need a break.
was excited to see so many new posts in this thread only to find out it's two autists arguing with each other feelsbadman
>>176052Wait until you find out its the same nutjob replying to himself
>>176056hehe kitty meow meow.
>>176018>>176026labelling boards as reddit or 4chan is silly, but the Powell flight deck is all I ever see on r/newskaters. Yes, lurking there is rage baiting myself. It can be funny sometimes. It's usually overweight dudes thinking they need a special board so they go for the flight decks. So Creature 4chan anon isn't entirely wrong.
>>176010I would go 8.5. I wouldn't waste your money on the flight deck. Just go for normal BBS wood. Take a look at the Slap woodshop directory and find a brand you like that uses BBS.
what do you fools make of these contests? What other spots should be resurrected? I think Carlsbad would be sick.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMAz2Cp---4
>>176059>labelling boards as reddit or 4chan is sillyNo it really isn't if you think about it. Reminder to all cucks in here that unironically the most important thing about skating has always been being cool and saying fuck you. It's been that way since day one whether you like it or not. I sure as fuck am not skating some gay corny shit like a powell deck with their gay corny youtuber crew. Gatekeeping has always been a part of skate culture as well. Basically anything I don't like and think is gay and corny equates to reddit, and if you have an opinion that can be described as reddit, I'm gatekeeping you. Creature on the other hand looks cool as hell. They're OG. They skate hard. Very easy for me to give them the 4chan (the place all reddit and slap fucks come to to try and fit in and be cool) stamp of approval. Pussyass with your powell deck fuck outta here. Anyone that disagrees clearly doesn't skate or has been casually doing it for a few years at most.
tfw its dark by half 4 now>>176061i like it, the hubba hideout one was good too
Guys I have bad news. I went to the local today because I wanted the new Static video. Apparently they only ordered two copies and they already sold out. I asked if they were going to get more but the owner sort of just shrugged at me.I am very envious of people with competent skate shops. I just ordered it from another place across the fucking country and it's going to be here in a couple of days.
>>176062>I sure as fuck am not skating some gay corny shit like a powell deck with their gay corny youtuber crewI mean, I agree with this, but I'm not going to go out of my way to shit on people if they wanna ride some wack shit
>>176064Going to a shop to pick up a video? I haven't done that in like ten years. Is it not going to Youtube after a while?
>>176068>I haven't done that in like ten years>/esg/
>>176069Yeah, I didn't think people still bought videos from shops like that. My local shop closed down in 2014
>>176066Well I will. This isn't the nice guy club.
>>176059The only possible way you'd even know that to begin with is if you're a redditor yourself and even bother going to such places>>176060>Don't waste money on a board that's guaranteed to last twice as long as a normal board because some faggot on 4chins might make fun of you (even though they'd never have the balls to say something irl)
>>176062Post videos proving that you're a better skater or simply fuck off, because you're literally just having a meltdown over nothing as far as I'm concerned>muh gatekeepingAnd how well has that worked out for you so far? People like you have voices that don't matter but try to act as though you're the most integral players in the sport, when you're fucking worthless
Stop being niggers and purchase a deck the white man way... Go to the shop and ask to see up to around seven boards you could see yourself wanting, now put them on the carpet and stand on them and pretend like your doing moves, pick the one that feels best for you. The only way to find what shape and concave you prefer is to stand on the deck and compare. Stop buying decks like a uninformed nigger
>>176079Better skater than who? Set the standard to beat, retard. Do you even skate? In here all triggered and shit by me saying powell is reddit, and that being reddit is bad. You are quite literally an offended redditor.
>>176082>I don't go to reddit at allSo why are you so triggered?
>>176080>Go to the shopgood one anon. half of the posters here have already have confessed to being too afraid to visit a skateshop.
>>176084Nice projection retard. Control your emotions.
>>176080My local is literally 15 miles away.
>>175970it rained for one day here in so-cali
>>176087Nigga cars exist
>>176087Is that too far away or are you saying its close by?
>>176075I literally admit to lurking reddit in the post you replied to. I think flight decks and other gimmicks are usually a waste of money.>guaranteed to last twice as longwhat a load of shit
>>176098>gimmickIt's literally the same as a normal board but replacing two plys with fiberglass, how is that a gimmickThat's like saying urethane wheels are a gimmick after steel and clay>what a load of shitObviously it isn't indestructible, but if it can be fine being ran over by 3-4k pound vehicles, then what's the problem?
>>176100They've been doing carbon fiber plys forever. I had a Flip board that had them and it snapped just as quickly as every other deck I've had. Anecdotal I know. Maybe they've gotten better, but I don't think its worth spending more money when wood will do you just fine. You can buy whatever you want though.>That's like saying urethane wheels are a gimmick after steel and clayWe don't have carbon fiber decks everywhere because it doesn't respond the same as wood. If everyone switched over to it then you know its legit. Companies have been dicking around with carbon fiber plys for decades and none of it has had wide spread adoption.
>>175999>one example is opening your shoulders forward when doing a 360 flip, and when they land towards the front of the board they zoosh out Bro that has happened to me but whacking my head fortunately
>>176080im one of the most hated skaters in NY due to my edgy 4chan persona. id get jumped walking into any shop and most skateparks
>>176105You sound 15
me and my friend were skating this cool ditch which has a gap from the side walk to the actual thing itself and i hit my head and the concrete cut me up TERRIBLY :|thanks for reading
>>176108damn, hope you heal up and go back and land whatever you were trying
r8 my locals boards
>>176117uhhhhare you in St. Pete...
>>176117I like them. Nice wood grain. Logo isn't too crazy.
>>176108hope u feel better anon
>>176085I need to hit up the shop. Went to Zumiez and all the decks were 70 dollars plus. Would a local shop have better deals? Or should I order online? Wanting to spend 40-50 at most on a new deck
>>176124A local shop will most likely have shop decks for cheaper. They might have clearance decks too. Either way its better to support them than a Zumiez
>>176124Shops usually have shop decks in that price, that's how much boards cost now so you would have to find a deal online if you want a pro board, pro boards and shop decks are the same
>Regular board>7-ply maple>$39-59>Pro board>7-ply maple>$79-99
>>176131there is price point wood and higher ,quality wood from most brands
I go to shops to put boards on the carpet and stand on them and pretend like I'm doing moves
>>176133a few, a very small fraction, not most. just go on slap and learn the woodshops and you'll know what you are getting.

>$54.99 for just a deck>$125.99 for a complete (Tensor Trucks, Mini Logo Wheels, Abec 7 Bearings)Would it be a better investment to just buy a deck and pick out my own trucks, wheels, and bearings?
I think one thing with older skaters when they are getting into it or just starting is now that we have money, we want to spend like we couldn't when we were kids. I was close to falling for the flight gimmick myself at one point. Soon you'll learn it's better to spend that money trying different brands, shapes, sizes throughout time instead of having one indestructible board that you're stuck with and ends up sitting in your closet because you want to try something new. Even if you're a big fat fucker, a regular ass wood board can handle a lot. Look at skate videos and look at how grown men are throwing themselves off big gaps or stairs and landing back on their boards just fine. Surely a wooden board can handle you trying to roll down your driveway.
>>176155point to the one that called you out and hurt your feelings, anon.
help him guys>>>/wsg/5341810
>>176153I scored 8/23. I'm gonna go skate now.
>>176153>>can't change a car batterythis was such silly moment in /esg/ I'm glad people still remember it.
>>176153>can ride your skateboard, but can't ride switch>haven't changed your board in the last month>haven't got any friends>played any of the THPS games>went to reddit even once>visited slap even once>are singleGuilty as fuck
>>176184oh but i dont tell people i skate so were good
saw some retard pushing down the street with a tiny surfskate setup without pivoting his front foot to face forward from sideways to get better pushes and thought he was dumb but it made me want to skate again
why can I ollie when standing still, but not when rolling?
>>176203Because you aren't used to doing them with momentum. You need more practice while rolling.
I haven't skated in 3 weeks and have now probably lost all my progress in the last 6 months
where is /esg/ skating this weekend? anyone battling a trick that got away? or practicing something you just learned?also a bunch of online stores are starting black friday sales this week. get those deals while you can
>>176225I'm going to lot 11 you guys can come if you want
>>176227>lot 11That place looks awesome. First time I saw it was from that birthday edit Jamie Thomas filmed there.>>176225Weekends are for street skating. Most my regular parks will be crowded. Might go downtown or to the local university.
damn you guys are old as fuck. talking about being in your 30s too scared to get on your board because you don't have life insurance. really makes me grateful to be young and able to skate whenever I want
>>176234This, id be embarrassed to be that old and still skating desu
>>176234It'll happen to you.
>>176236i'll make the most of it.. lol working on my nose grinds out of shit rn
>>176235When you get old you lose the social anxiety and stop caring twitchy anon
>>176234I'm in my 30s and still jump down stuff
>>176234I wasn't scared, but now I'm paying the consequences.
>>176234That's because they're afraid of everything.
>>176235i think skating has no age frendo>>176236thats why i will take care of my body and stretch daily so i dont have to sulk like an old fuck constantly>>176246who tf are you?>>176268godspeed anon.>>176272i think theyre valid idk
>>176273btw im psychotically smelling my cotton candy wax rn fuz im fucking retarded and cant get enough of the smell its like crack or like smelling salts but not for fags (or mega fags depending on how u see it)
>>176234Meanwhile you have people trying to learn how to skate for the first time in their 20s or 30s. Anyone who started early in life should be stoked.
I'm going to make a new thread in a few minutes because I feel like it. We don't have to wait until the thread is so old. We can do whatever we want.
MOVE IT >>176281>>176281>>176281>>176281
>>176279Do it the thread is done
words cannot come close to how much i fucking hate every one of you posting here. absolutely fucking infuriating reading your stupid fucking questions and shitty excuses for banter. i can smell when i encounter someone that frequents these threads and you have no idea how close you are to getting your throat slashed. the way you talk, your choice of filler words in passing conversation, your mannerisms, your accent, your lack of balance, your attire, your trick selection, your warmup, your lack of ability to gain knowledge from observing which is the only fucking way to progress, your all of it sucks so fucking bad i cant do anything other than pity your pathetic existence staining this earth. fuck you all and die as soon as possible
>>176503Bitch you won't do shit you fucking pussy wigger
