Trick tip is a mesh-up, more of a reminder but you would have to read the previous thread.
Also, don't chew words, this si the OP, you need to put the motto in CAPITALS, YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO SKATE, NOW GO OUT AND SHRED.
YOU'RE NEVER TOO FAT TO SKATE, NOW GO OUT AND SHRED.

And an appropriate tip would be, honestly, don't reply to questions of an excessivelly fundamental nature, like "how do I tie my shoes?".

And stop sexualising girl skaters right at a point where they feel more accepted.


Also, you should add that LOCKDOWNS ARE CLASS WAR.

Don't over do it, man. The worst injuries I've had were after a short break. Your brain has unlearned the fear, but your body isn't in tune. You'll "feel" like you can do the old stuff, but when you try it your legs will feel like jello. Give yourself like a week grace period of light cruising before you jump on rails or something. You don't wanna eat shit on a boardslide.

What happened to skate shoes?
>>
>>34194
Baggy clothes went out of fashion, and big techy skate shoes like CT-IVs etc don’t look good with skinny clothes, hence everything went slimmer.
>>
>>34224
Baggy clothes are mainstream and all the trendy skaters wear them (rap music)
>>
>>34227

Baggy clothes weren’t mainstream for skating between like 2004-2011, pants were tight. It’s come back now though, puffy skate shoes haven’t though.
>>
How did people cope with this shit?
>>
>>34228
All the young locals wear big clown shoes now because the 90s are hip (Director: Jonah Hill).
Yeah the tight pants peak was around the time when Foundation That's Life came out but the steezy dawgs still wore baggy stuff here.

Small wheels are the best.

sure you can... but you can just skate tranny with your 8" board. all this autistic nu-shit about setups is so overhyped. I've been skating for over 20 years and I just recently wen't to an 8" from 7.75" and I've always skated tranny at the parks.

The furious autism in these threads is unbelievable, it is unmatched anywhere on earth IRL.

Setup is literally 100% personal preference

Seeing redditors discuss skateboarding is the most infuriating thing I've ever seen on that site. That god damn video of a homie teaching a kid to drop in always results in super smarmy comments. "Way to go little bro! But they should both be wearing helmets! How are the parents just filming this? Head injury is no joke, my nephew skated in the 90s and blah blah blah blah"

>>34295
Its always been like this. Some of them are just park rats that literally spend all day there because they have nothing else to do or no where to go. That's fine, some of those guys rip when they finally shut up, others don't even skate and just need a community. However, I live 18 miles away from my park, the last thing I wanna do is sit on a ledge and shoot the shit. I'm there to skate and get my mind right. Maybe we can work on tricks together and have a sesh, but the last thing I wanna do is talk about how you're trying to get your kids back from CPS or how your insta is blowing up. Maybe I'm antisocial or autistic, but I've always been more about skating than the "vibes". The last thing I wanna do is get high and bum around at a skatepark.
>>
>>34265
you're not going to do any real damage unless you get stupidly unlucky/be a retard or get to trying to jump 10+ stairs.

unironically go around and deliberately fall off of stuff and try to hurt yourself, you'll realise after a time that yeah it hurts in the moment but it soon subsides

You HAVE to get the 8.25 trucks. If the skatepark referee catches you with larger trucks (breaking rules 5C and 6D in the internation skateboarding association handbook) you will have to spend 15 minutes in the penalty box and have 3 points deducted from your run score. It is very important to follow all of the official rules in the sport of skateboarding, as consistency in training is extremely important in getting your stats up.

I actually got his last years model, it was a 8.38 with steep concave and it was actually my favorite baker deck I ever skated I wish they made more steep concave decks.

It was a factory complete Baker, it was $80 on sale, and I know it has a mellow concave. I'm a pragmatist, so I wasn't spending $40 more for a cool-lookin' Toy Machine that is going to get beat to shit anyways.

I’ve skated my current wheels down to 45mm, so I want to replace them. I’m thinking of moving to 56mm or even 58mm, is this a retard big jump? What is the general consensus on wheel sizes these days.

well fat it doesnt sound like you want to skateboard then. once again, get a bicycle retard, you can switch gears so its not as intense.

Don't listen to the retard. It's fun. Just make sure to get soft and big wheels. You don't need small hard wheels unless you're doing tricks. Get a pre-built sector 9 or something.

don't listen to the retards here skating is fun and better exercise than cycling
if you don't want to do tricks consider a longboard/cruiser something with bigger softer wheels you can ride outside of the park

https://www.skatehut.co.uk/clearance-1/skateboard-1/paris-trucks-co-street-skateboard-trucks-raw-raw.htm
>>
>>34507

They are very high trucks, they have an extended base plate making them about 58mm/60mm high. It might make it difficult for a beginner to use.

I would recommend these, I have had them before. They are the cheapest forged trucks available and are 52mm which is better for learning things like ollies since you are closer to the ground.

I skated the 8.0 on a 7.75” it works very well. Going +0.25” for your trucks; in fact I find it usually works better as you have a much more stable platform.

Only thing I will say about the fury evos is that they are insanely turny with conical bushings, like ace. So keep the barrels if want stability.

pushing around on a cruiser or a longboard is less exercise than walking is. he doesnt want to skateboard he wants to exercise. if the guy runs on a daily basis hes gonna hate it when his ankles eventually gets fucked up. i dont know how in your minds learning to ollie or do tricks is less intense than running is but whatever.

what has he quit /esg/??
>>

Nobody is saying any of that. You are putting words in people's mouths. He said cruise around on a skateboard, not do tricks down stairs. Yes, walking is more exercist, but it's also slower and less fun. Relax bubble-boy, he clearly wants to try it and just wants validation. Do it. It's fun, and it's better than sitting indoors playing video games.

Luis Mora has a good channel(at least the older stuff) but I can't fucking stand the music or the clothing style. Otherwise it's a good vibe because it's basically just normal skating with friends and not some try hard type of shit, which is unique these days.
>>
>>34529
>He said cruise around on a skateboard, not do tricks down stairs.
He didn't say that at all. He asked if skateboarding was good exercise and I said no and you faggots chimed in with your cruise around and have fun bull shit. You're the one speaking for others. I answered his question simply and plainly. You can keep talking your flowery faggoty shit trying to convince yourself and others skateboarding is the perfect activity for everyone, Im going to give facts.

fuck i'm in leafland and i just bought a complete for the first time since i was a teenager
i was going to put it together myself but when i started gathering the parts my subtotal was already over $400 and i wasn't even finished with it
i ended up finding the deck and trucks i wanted from the manufacturer in the usa for less than half that
the wheels and bearings aren't what i would have picked but for that price i can switch them a couple times over
>>
>>34500
the most expensive 'brand' name completes on all uk sites i can see hover around the £80-90 mark. once you get down to the £50 level which is around the same price as $75 you get basicall 3 brands.. enuff/birdhouse and the tony hawk branded ones
>>
>>34542
You're delusional. Skating, especially in the spring/summer when it's hot as fuck outside is very good cardio AND waist down workout. I'm not talking about cruising around the skatepark. Outside pushing for long distances will get you in shape like ANY other form of traveling under your own power. Want to see my ripped thighs?
>>
>>34548
If you still get sore from skating, you clearly don't do it everyday. You should have reached the plateau by now. Keep baiting.

I said "least fatal", meaning no matter what you won't die from it unless you're slamming your head from a huge gap (and even then you will likely live), all sports will result in injury eventually. Abrasions and bruises are common, broken bones are usually because of a freak accident or bad technique. What did you do, catch yourself while falling instead of absorbing it and rolling?

it was stupidity
i came down my driveway on my the way to school and went off the curb like i had done 1000000 times before probably only half paying attention to what i was doing but i fucked up somehow and fell backwards on the corner of the curb with my palm breaking the fall
>>
>>34601
I thought so, it's the most common break. Sounds like you weren't even going that fast so you wouldn't have the angular momentum to roll. Shitsux.
>Half paying attention
And that would be why. You gotta keep an eye out, even on familiar terrain. Shit can change at any time, and you could be riding on a slightly different line causing a hangup or whatever. The only way people can cruise about absent mindedly is because they live in an area that has good paving or they've got crust legs that know how to navigate unkempt pavement.

I would suggest that once you're confident in heading out again, find a really crusty hill to bomb. Or don't, I'm not your mother.

I'm fairly new to skateboarding and have an 8" Primitive deck as my first board. Was wondering how often people try other brands when it's time to get a new deck, or if it's better to just choose one and stick with them?

Do you change size at all, or have different sized decks for different job? I feel like I want to try an 8.25 as I have this reoccuring thought that it's a good size for cruising and doing flatground/skatepark stuff, but obviously I dunno what the fuck I am talking about so need to sanity check it. I slipped out on my current set up and slammed HARD and now I feel like a bigger deck would suit me better (although my gut tells me it's just cause I'm still new and shit and a different board won't fix this).
>>
>>34609
You're new and no amount of new product will fix it.
If you have money then buy whatever you want.
>>
>>34606
It's really sad that you give a shit, you sound really insecure about weight

>>
I'm thinking of buying a curb for some home slappies. What is the best way to make it slide well? Just slathering it in wax or painting it?
>>
>>34609
In the decades I've been skating, I just grab something new each time. they all feel "the same" if you wanna get real. takes about a couple of hours to get used to a new deck that's a different spec. the differences are on such a small level, you only notice if you TRY to notice. I don't change size back and forth though. Once I moved from a 7.75 to an 8, been there ever since.
>>
>>34630
paint then wax. buy the road paint like they use on the yellow center line. shit is slick.
>>
>>34612
Yeah, fair point. Fuck it, I do have money so I will get that 8.25 I've been looking at cause the graphic is nice.

Is there really much of a difference between brands, though? Not to make you skate better, just in the sense that it would feel different enough to have a preference.
>>
>>34634
what about masonry paint
>>
>>34609
I'm a noob and bought a wide (9'') board thinking I'd want to cruise and I'd say stick with a narrow one. The width makes things a bit more stable but it's way too big and heavy for tricks. I actually bought a narrow one for using in the park so now I have two boards when I really barely need one.
>>
>>34623
Lmao I'd bet, even money
>>34635
Not generally speaking. There's some specialty boards made of bamboo or carbon fibre but ultimately there's a reason companies tend to stick to maple, if it ain't broke don't fix it.
>>
>>34630
>buying a curb
just steal one
>>
>>34641
>way too big and heavy for tricks
Really? There seems to be plenty of pro's out there doing tricks on 8.5's and above, though.
>>
>>34639
maybe
>>
>>34650
if you want to cruise the biggest difference is in wheel size and hardness. a wider deck doesn't make cruising any better.
>>
>>34641

I have a 9” and you can definitely do tricks on them, I would Argue stuff like kickflips are easier as it rotates slower
>>
>>34630
No no no anon what are you doing? Take it from some old parking lot. Or just make one.
>>
>>34655
I don't know how you can get it off the ground. Mine weighs a ton.
>>
>>34657
Practice, admittedly I lost tres when I moved from an 8 to a 9.
>>
>>34644
>>34656
They’re $8
>>
>>34661
That's $8 you can save by checking bar and liquor store parking lots, grocery stores too occasionally. Check where people would drive drunk
>>
Do you need to secure the block to the ground? How do you keep it from sliding around?
>>
>>34664
Use superglue
>>
>>34664
where are you getting 8 dollar parking blocks from?

Ive got rubber matting so I’ll line it with that, the blocks are about 100lbs so it won’t move.

its like some of you have never been outside

just squat low and stay on the board so if you fall you don't have far to fall.

>>34682
depends on the manufacturer and specific wheel style/shape. sometimes a little sometimes noticeable
>>
>>34672
Try them slowly with a handplant at first. Gets you used to sliding the trucks up the coping and locking in without hanging up. You can plant closer to the curb over time putting more of your weight over it until you're basically just brushing it with your hand.

DONT DEWEIGHT
>>
>>34383
8.475 is a standard baker shorter wb shape (14.25) , it's named differently to differentiate from their standard 8.5 14.5 wb. maybe they are actually one fortieth of an inch narrower as well

I was thinking about how many lame people come to the skatepark (e.g. RC car bros), but I have never seen a photographer come to the skatepark and try to shoot photos for fun. would love if that happened and I could get a nice pic. has a photog ever showed up at your park? pic unrelated but kinda related.

umm like wow can you say kook alert??

180s just piss me off it’s like I find the sweet spot for the pop but my shoulders won’t rotate fully and then when I finally rotate my shoulders my pop goes retarded

Dont unweight drastically at least. You need some pressure to hold the board in place while you get into the grind otherwise you're just gonna slip out.

ASKING THE ZOOMERS:

if a 30-something year old boomer showed up at your local park and tried showing off his ramps would you consider buying one from him? i've been thinking of trying an etsy-style business. commisions welcomed/encouraged. my plan is basically showing up one day with some shit in my trunk and letting kids try it out and probably just leaving them at the park to get stolen. do you think anybody would buy from me or would they just keep getting amazong plastic shit?

I like whatever aluminum alloy Indy and thunder uses, it shaves off a bit while grinding so you don’t get stuck on rough ledges unlike theeve’s titanium trucks. The magnesium ones from tensor are too light for me and don’t feel as good to grind but that’s personal preference

It's all preference and opinion when it comes to trying new gear or when it's time to buy new gear.

I grew up shredding and working in a shop atmosphere. Close to the dudes on the "team". There's dudes who would set up new boards daily, and guys who would rock em to the break, even though they were getting free or heavily discounted gear.

I'm in the latter. I absolutely hate fresh shoes, grip, trucks, and wheels. A new deck is great even when my old one is in good shape but everything else I hate to switch up unless it's on its last leg.

Right now if your new learning to get comfortable riding is what's most important. A big board or a small board ain't gonna make a difference early on. Even if you got huge feet or are a bigger guy, learning to ride and push around comfortably shouldn't be a problem, learning to Ollie as well.

As long as your not falling off ALL the time you should be fine with with an 8. Your gonna fall alot learning to ride and push. I fell more leaning to ride the board then I did learning to Ollie.

Once you're comfortable and get the olly down and maybe some 180s and shuvs than start experimenting. But right now don't worry to much about finding your size. A wider board is a good platform for getting comfortable.

Once your comfortable and balanaced and ready to learn some advanced tricks and grinds you can move up or down in size. I know some big dudes riding bucking on 7.75 and some small dudes who rock 8.5+ flipping in and out of shit. It really ain't gonna matter until you ready for the next step.

If you got friends with different boards try those. But I wouldn't be worried to much about finding an ideal size right now unless you absolutely uncomfortable and unable to balance on the size your at.
>>
>>34861
That would be considered masking your face jsyk
>>
>>34785
I know man. its a work in progress
>>
>>34839
Colored wheels and paint your trucks yourself. Not being able to do any tricks is uncool.

>>34894

>>
>>34690
I've been working on these as well. Took me quite a while to get over the coping because they feel scary as fuck, but ironically the faster you go, the easier they end up being. You have a greater moment of inertia where you slowly feel your self reaching a peak and then the fall back down. It's a window of time where you feel that you're floating and can make adjustments quite easy. My tip isn't to just go fast though, I tried that and it was too scary and felt awkward. It was only after doing what you're doing now over the course of months did I feel comfortable enough to keep shaping them straighter and how to throw myself upwards with the ollies to pop over the coping. Like a manual there's just a balance to it you've got to develop. Try learning disasters as a supplementary trick to learn. It'll help you get over the fear or locking up and they're an easier way to get that 180 up the ramp a smudge.

black grip, white wheels, silver trucks is seen as core or whatever. usually younger kids will have colored stuff and older skaters won't. but obviously there are exceptions, including franky villani who obviously rips. can't really think of other pros with colored wheels but I'm sure there are some.
>>
>>34913
and to take it a step further, a lot of people hate bright white bones wheels. spitties are more of an off-white that look more aged from the start.
>>
i know it sounds gay but how easy is it to draw on the grip
>>
>>34812
ricta and bones are probably with spitfire as the "holy trinity"
>>
>>34830
that's why you get wheels that aren't way bigger than the ones you normally ride. something like 56mm in 78 or 80 durometer and something with a rounded edge so it's similar feel to a street wheel. ricta clouds, spitfire 80hd, stuff like that.
>>
>>34826
don't start by popping too high OR too low on the ramp. too low and you don't get the same feeling because your board doesn't suck to your feet like it would if you were higher up on the ramp. too high and it's too scary becase you think you're gonna hang on the coping. I suggest learning on a 5 or 6ft quarter pipe. any smaller and it's not vertical enough. the more vertical the ramp when you pop, the more your board sticks to your feet because physics.

here's the aftermath of using one of those whetstones for scythes to prep a curb as the hardware store didn't have rub bricks
was just a few Euros and worked okay for the ~5 board lengths of curb I wanted to do, even though it snapped in half and probably won't be good for another
no good for chunkier curbs though, those will eat right through

stoked to wax it and learn some stuff on it tomorrow

I usually don't skate street spots but the other day noticed parking lot that was banked on one end with a short barrier behind the coping and the whole parking lot was kinda on a hill that led right into the bank plus the building it was a parking lot for had a long handicap ramp with a kinked rail leading to the building. Looked a little crusty and I'm wondering if I'll be able to skate it at all without the cops coming but it looks pretty neat

i can barely do fs 180s and can't do bs. I can ollie pretty high however. You wanna do a ninja kick kinda. Pop super hard and let your front foot kick in front of you as far as you can. Also, lift your back foot as high as possible.

This video changed the way I think about ollies.
