>>41902I'm not against artists or brands taking a stance on issues they feel are important. You might disagree, but at least they're letting you know where they stand. The ones who keep silent are the ones you've got to watch out for. They're the ones that scheme a way to have you fired for wrong think. That being said, I wouldn't rock a political identity board. Or maybe I would. I want something stupid on mine.

>>41921damn son. yeah i need to feel the board run across my fingers in a certain way to create the right angle when cutting. dont think a knife or anything with a handle would work for me at all. this youtube dude cuts from the top with a knife: https://youtu.be/Ayxcv_Qo9hw?t=263 ...never seen anyone do it that way irl.
>>41923Have some razors on the way to trim it off.>>41927Yeah, it's all I had. It did cut good, but the adhesive kept sticking to the blade causing it to keep gumming up. Never had that happen with a razor or jessup tape before.

>>41914Shit, when i was learning heelfips i would land on the nose and split the board on each side of the front truck, but you landed on the tail?
I finally got my speed rings so I can try out Reds for the first time BUT OF COURSE IT HAS TO RAIN
>>41968Yeah man I've wanted to skate these past days but it's been raining. I can't skate this morning because the ground is wet.
>>41892>my brands are too cool and local to ever make these listsFeels good
What skaters inspire you? For me it's the early street skaters like Natas, Ray barbee, Jason Lee, and the Gonz.Ray Barbee is prolly the reason I always do switch 180 no complys (I skate regular)The early street skating style is more Accessible to me because I don't wanna do hand rails and shit. I just wanna cruise around and pop my tricks and hang out at my local skate park.
>>41977Scott stevens (more of a snowboarder) for his no comply/kickflip game. Dude just locks everything.Jamal got me into transition skating. I like weck when he skates and goes agro, this whole sam hyde friendship thing seems pretty cringe tho. Like he’s becoming the very thing he made fun of
>>41968try living somewhere where it literally rains every couple of days, often times for days on end.
>>41977ones that look like they're having fun. I don't like the ragers who focus boards and whine when they can't get a trick for the camera. chris haslam, daewon song, creative guys like that just seem like they really enjoy skating. I also like guys who have retarded pop, they might not do the most technical things even, but they can get over and onto anything most other people can't. thiago lemos mixed insane tech skill with retarded pop.
>>41982Yeah I also love Daewon. I only know Taigo Lemos from that skater xl game. As far as good pop goes I think Natas had pretty good pop. I wanna ollie over trash cans and fire hydrants like him. Mike V was also pretty good at ollies.
It arrived. Mini Logo Chads report in!
>>41984In high school I went off a kicker and snapped my mini logo. Only board I ever snapped.
>>41887The power of Scientology
>>42000Also known as washers
>>41902Real is cucked. I wouldn't say Seattle/Portland levels of cucked, but pretty bad. But the shapes are the best in the industry. Was this way 10 years ago and still is. Read up (Vans is based):https://www.instagram.com/p/BbUq8Pyl4iY/
Also it's possible Real itself shelved this faggots design. Don't forget behind every skate company are artists that want to push their own agenda. But T Guerrero is legitimately an End Racism type of dude. I'm not sure if it's in the modern sense or because of his own life experiences. He has contributed a lot to skateboarding so he has a right not to get pissed on. Fuck BLM and antifa though (what the artists seem to want to push).
if I see griffin gass flip in flip out one more goddamn time I swear to god
Steve Cab seems to share Guerrero's sentiment by the way. He seems to hate California Skate Nazi culture. Again, probably personal experiences. Again deserves not to get pissed on.
>>42004So first of all, why do you need washers to try reds? Second of all, what do you mean you finally got your washers? Did you like order a set of washers online or something?
>>42008>California Skate Nazi cultureI thought cali was pozzed?
>Real is cucked. I wouldn't say Seattle/Portland levels of cucked, but pretty bad. But the shapes are the best in the industry. Was this way 10 years ago and still is. Read up (Vans is based):
>>42010https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=108531.0Very wrong. California is basically a microcosm of the western society. It was paradise on Earth until it was forced to commit suicide. Surf and skate probably have the most "racist" history of all sports. And by that I mean they still had Japanese guys like Shogo Kubo, Steve Cab, Tommy Guerrero killing it and Jay Adams rocking the iron cross at the same time. If anything, outsiders pozzed skate and surf. Iron cross is still alive and well in SoCal.
>>search skate videos see his face spamming entire column of video options>jesus christ what the fuck
Jews are pushing hard against Independent because of the aesthetic. That's why you have dudes trying to make any shit truck happen with custom bushings, combined baseplates/hangers as long as it's not Independent. They really HATE Independent and SoCal skate culture. Santa Cruz is another one, but they're off the leash because they have mixed their aesthetic with Zumiez kiddie shit.
>outsiders pozzed skate and surf. Iron cross is still alive and well in SoCal.
>>41977I'm not nearly good enough to actually identify with a pro skater but whenever I want to get stoked to skate, I watch Suciu or Cookie.
>>42016cry it out.
>>41977Based af anon
>>42022>>42018You goys are retarded sometimes.Being based and being Jewish aren't mutually exclusive.Now stop talking about election tourism shit and let me practice my ollie.
>>42017What, they don’t like the cross?
How do you guys get around stalling in your progression, I’ve not really been able to properly practice my flatland for a while and it’s sort of gone to shit: whereas before I was making really good progress.
search skate videos see this spammed relentlessly.
>>42036NOtice his lizard stare. is that a Scientology technique to brain wash viewers into clicking?
>>41909>Complains about ugly deck>Turns wheels inside out
>>42015>slapNot clicking that.
>>42015>Iron cross is still alive and well in SoCal.Maybe in regards to the Independent logo but that's it. I'm hispanic and skated from 98 to about 2006 then just started again two years ago~ never once encountered "skate nazis" or racism in any form among skateboarders. And back in the day i'd go to the Venice Wall, Hollywood High, El Dorado, etc a lot of the big spots and everyone was always cool.More recently now that i'm a fat dad and have been to more skateparks ~ same thing, people are always cool.Maybe Skate Nazis existed in the 70s up to the early 90s but its never been a thing in my experience. Slapfaggots are just looking for a cause to get behind ever since they ruined Jason Jesse's career they've been chasing that dragon ever since.
>>42044fatbro you're our dad
>>41909>80 duro wheelsIt's ok, you don't skate anyways. Weather is not an issue for you.
>>42032I did.Scraped my arm.But I got back up.
>>41887fucking hate this little chihuahua looking ass motherfucker jesus christ. I honestly think he's some sort of kid friendly scientology sci op to get more kids into scientology somehow.
>>42044I don't think they will go out of their ways to harass you as a hispanic skater. They just do their own thing and get their SS tattoos and hang swastikas on the on the wall.
>tfw wanted to be a hipster and got ventures instead of indies>even though indies are epic iron cross nazis and ventures are cringe blm cucksVentures do skate really nice though.
>>42047Posting a pic of a deck is enough to put them closer to having skated than you. It's like that old skate adage >Those that cry loudest about others not skating, do not skate themselves
>>42057>themGood thing your opinion means nothing.
>>42053yeah that i can believe.>>42046:)
>>41984that looks fat as fuck like 9 inches. how big is it?
>>42044>Jason JesseI just looked that up, and man.That's really sad.I thought he was just a Nazi in the sense of "oh my gosh he doesn't like trans enby walrusses he's such a Nazi", but dang, that dude is like a full blown actual neo-nazi.Major bummer
>>42005>disliking nazis is cuckedholy shit you faggots are truly brain poisoned. skateboarding has always been anti-authoritarian.
>>42044>never once encountered "skate nazis" or racism in any form among skateboarders.th-they are just hiding their power level, baka!
>>42063Sounds like you just need a boogieman to rally against and feel like you’re part of some righteous cause. You know, after a certain point in time, disliking Nazis won’t be any different than disliking Mongols.
>>42063havent you heard? being a nazi is cool and anti conformist now. authoritarianism is radical, Im a free thinker.
Should i get these ?
>>42070Probably not, unless you really don't want to spend more.

>>42047>Imagine taking a break from sucking off junkies with HIV to go on a Chilean Tarantula Breeding Forum and shit on someone's wheels.>Imagine using 101A when you live on a mountain top with shitty cracked asphalt on every road and 30 miles from the nearest skate park.8/10 got me to reply
>>42044This is now a Skate Dad thread.>Daughters new gear with ugly Vans.
>>41981>Live in temperate rainforestI know the feel bro.
>>42081My oldest -9yo- rolls around on a Sonic deck with Tensor trucks and Element wheels if he was more into it I'd spend more but so far he's just rolling around on it.My 5yo son and 2yo daughter like to sit and ride down the driveway on my Polar which i set up with my old trucks. I have a 3 month old baby as well.None of them are really super into it ~ but neither was I til i was maybe 12 years old or so ~ so I'm not really pushing it too hard.
>>42081I use those wheels on my cruiser, they make me feel like I’m surfing instead of skating.
>>42085Are you someone's daughter too?
>>41876Is 26 too old to skate? I really wanna get good
>>42081>seventy eight durometerShe doesn't skate. Jk good job friend.
>>42087Well no, I guess I should have mentioned they’re 60mm and not 52mm
>>42088As you get older skating alone gets more rewarding. When I was younger I was simply too retarded to figure out the proper order to do things and there was no one around to show me better. Just take small steps until you're there. 26 is literally young, you have like 15 years to rip hard.
>>42070i got them, cool look but ruined them after a week
>>42084Yeah my daughter started on this 7.25 Darkstar, but it was too small. I got her the 7.625 Chocolate board since it is bigger and it was $35 as a blem (small chip on a truck).Son is getting the Darkstar but he is too young except to sit on the board and scoot.
>>42096So >>41892 was right about darkstar all along.
>>41977Why not Mike Vallely?
>>42006>Don't forget behind every skate company are artists that want to push their own agendaLol, yeah bro, Tony Hawk founded birdhouse to promote his paintings and Birdo started Consolidated because he secretly wanted to promote his albums.>>42008I was inder the impression that Cab was more of a "miss me with that whole pronoun and fursona bullshit" kind of guy. I'm glad to hear about what you said, if it's true.
>>41977Rodney Mullen (duh), Gou Miyagi, Daewon Song, Steve-O (the ability to get back up no matter what),
>>42106Go to 50% of skateboard companies' websites. They are designed with clothing and apparel in mind instead of skateboard hardware and gear.
>>42044Jason should fuck off, gutdad. Dude was seriously deranged. And the slap forum is the last healthy cell of skateculture. WE SHOULD BE LIKE THAT. Not them!Instead we have the resident troll and 4 other dudes including me.Slap is getting flack by corporate lackies (read: the majority of the industry and especially those with Nike contracts, like the Nike club) and only by them. You'd be crazy to think as a skater that Slap is bad. Slapforum is one of the coolest things of skateboard culture ever.
>>42102Mike V is a big time faggot. I'm sure i shared this before but in the early 2000s i was skating Hollywood High with some friends- we were at some smaller stair sets in the back not where the huge stair set where everyone films is.I've ran into a lot of ams/ pros in those days and they've always been cool, the ones who weren't like Greco or a few others kinda just kept to themselves- but usually someone else in their crew would be cool with us so it was fine.But i digest...So we're skating and we see him and one of my friends was like "oh shit its Mike V" and like a little bitch - in a very whiney voice he goes "Yes its me Mike V, everyone just stop what you're doing and interrupt what I'm doing because I'm Mike fucking V. NO you can;'t have my board, NO you can't have my autograph, I'm just here to skate. GOT THAT?"We kinda just gave him an "alright bro" and kept it moving- but because of that incident i couldn't fucking stand his ass
>>41963>als ich fettes brot am mic erwischte gab es toast
>>41977Tom Penny Frankie Hill (in Ban This)Chad Muska
>>42112I'm not saying what he was doing was alright at all. What I'm saying is that they've been trying to make that impact again ever since. They have their ups and downs if you really look at it but the majority of it is pretty lame. the vibe is a majority of dudes my age - who are doing whatever they can to look like they're progressive. Doesn't seem genuine most of the time.
>>42015By the way, that's a supreme post. Thanks for posting it. It basically explains what the "100% skateboarder" tattoo means.
>bruised (did not break) wrist in January>never fully healed, still have slightly limited mobility>fell on it just a little bit earlier today>hurt like a motherfuckerI think I should have done some regular stretches or something, I was lazy with it and underestimated it even though I knew it would suck to fall on it again. Any tips for a banged up wrist?
>>42112Slap is like everything else, great until the jews and trannys moved up the ranks and laid down the new rules. That's why they're doing things like putting skaters out of their jobs for political reasons while telling you not to politicize skating. 100% the work of the jew. The jew cries out in pain as he strikes you.
>>42123at the end of the day no forums are the same . personally, I'd rather post here than on Slap or Reddit .
Will people embrace Cory Kennedy now that he is a free man given how much everyone loved P-Stone?
>>41853I'm pretty sure the only difference between the G3 and G2 is the packaging and I think the G3's are great. Def better than Bones Reds which I would say are more comparable to Mini-logo bearings and I think they're both pretty good to begin with..
>>42124I would say give them a few weeks to heal and start wearing these. I couple of summers ago I kept going hard after banging up my wrists pretty bad and then they started randomly locking up on me. I ended up falling on them pretty hard again the following year after they fully healed and the lock-ups stopped but I think that only happened because the impact broke off the scar tissue in my wrist that was causing the lock-ups. You probably won't be so lucky.
>>42125You present it as if they exposed his personal photos with his lover becayse he wouldnt votw for their proposed bill. Dude was KNOWN to cause trouble and being racist to his core. And he ain't the only one.
>>42126I get you. Me too. 4chan is home. Also, i got banned from slap for registering, 4 timws, lmao. ThreadKilla sold us out though. He's there posting by his real name.
just tried to watch SLS for the first time, these guys are good skateboarders but why is it so boring to watch? it just feels so fake
>>42131Do these even help? I have a fucked up wrist, but the one time I wore one of these I still fucked it up again.
>>42110https://youtube.com/watch?v=23FWSF8dmqo>7:50>VF would also leverage their distribution channels to push vans into the apparel market.>Thanks to the sale of tshirts, sweatshirts, backpacks, jeans and more Vans apparel became a $400,000,000 cash cow by the mid 2010s>as a result of this expansion most people who now buy vans are regular consoomers and have no interest in extreme sports.>With the rise of the street wear and “ath-leisure wear” market people have opted for sportswear as their daily wardrobe
>>42135they help from grazing your wrist i guess and keeping your wrists straight but you shouldn't be falling on your wrists to begin with.i don't think they actually do anything to help against the actual issue which is falling on your wrists
>>41988Well I got a complete for a little more than what a "good" deck costs so I am not even going to cry.>>420618.25Maybe it's the wheels.
>>42110tfw favourite skate brand has like 3 different boards and like 20 different t shirts 10 different hoodies and like 15 different hats
>>42135I fell three times yesterday with them on and they protected my wrist. I think your stretching your arm out straight to break your fall when you should have your elbows tucked in, kinda like your doing a push-up.
>Reckonings are, by their nature, difficult things. Far easier to go the route of The Nine Club, who responded to a DM by explaining how they “try to avoid all that negative crap. Jason is a great skateboarder and person who said some really dumb stuff back in the mid 90s…no need to revisit it.”Lmao, you could tell they were paid to offer jason a platform to apologise
>>42141>You will be cancelled for past remarks>unless you can benefit one of the worst corporations in the world
I keep getting this bad big toe/ball of foot pain in my pushing foot... It always seems to come back and has been a reoccurring problem for like a year now?? Has anyone else had this or knows how to fix it? Am I pushing with my toes too much?
>>42140Nobody said anything about elbows.
>>42145They're still part of your arms, right?
>>42147Your point being?
>>42151Tucking in your elbows when you fall changes the angle which your hand and wrists hit the ground and lowers the amount of damage that is incurred during impact? Do I really need to break it down like this?
>>42152>Tucking in your elbows when you fallis how you break a rib
>>42147fell like this after slipping out on transition and hit my hip and nose pretty baddon't think it could have gone better thoughwith wrist guards I would have probably slid out and broken my nose for real so there is that
>>42153So your advice is to stretch out your arms out? Oh lord.
>>42152Yeah, because skateboarding falls are like the retard in your gif, and because that will save your wrist. Retard stop posting any day.
>>42158>hurrr you don't fall forward while skatingYeah until a pebble gets caught under your trucks and your board grinds to a halt. Whatever man, go break your wrists for all I care. I'm just sharing knowledge that prevented mine from becoming permanently damaged.
Uhmmmmmm.... Who is Dave Carnie?
>>42070they are skate shoes but the all coasts aren't part of the numeric skateboarding line and don't have the added durability, can't see the mesh lasting long if you skate>>42112if you look at the bottom of the page you can see how many unique ips have posted in a thread
>>42144idk. skate switch more and massage/stretch that area before and after sessions.
i keep falling on my hips/ass. wish I had more meat around there.
>>42162Yeah bro, I know about resetting thw router as well. What I don't know is who Dave Carnie is and how long my sugar momma will tolerate my skating no-cooking ass.
>>42164>I wish I had more meat around my hips and assI got some meat for your ass right here bby
>>42159Literally who are you quoting, newfaggot retard, because I did not say or imply that at all. You're not sharing any knowledge, you're just an annoying "hurr durr I told you so" know it all cunt nerd.
>>42127people already are
>>42167>guy in gif falls forward>skateboarding falls aren't like thatEither elaborate on what you mean, shit-for-brains or don't post at all. You've contributed literally nothing. Don't @ me.
>>42167Hey, chill the fuck out, little bitch grom
>>42102I like mike vallely, i just didn't mention every single skater that inspires me. I bought mike vallely airwalks in high school. I miss those shoes. I also skated one of his street plant decks a couple years ago, I still have it. Mike is a huge inspiration to me.
>>42169>quoting things I didn't sayEnd your life.
>>42171It's better to think Mike Vallely died in 1993.
>>42127I don't even understand why cory was responsible for the death in any way. if you're supposed to be responsible enough to not drive after drinking, why shouldn't you be expected to not get in a car with a drunk driver?
>>42031You just gotta skate more and try to do different tricks and improve the tricks you already know. Watch some skate videos. Get inspired. Skateboarding is not easy and there are huge learning curves.
>>42171>I bought mike vallely airwalks in high schoolWhat? How old are you?
>finally after weeks of rain and snow its decent out>have to workfucks sake I fucking hate this state
>>42181I'm 24they reissued the shoe in 2011https://youtu.be/pwYALNcd2UII thought Mike Vallely was cool back then and I had mad respect for all the Powell Peralta skaters since they played a big role in shaping modern skate culture.>>42178I'm glad Mike V didn't die in 1993. I was introduced to him from my older brother's taped copy of tony hawk's gigantic skate park tour 2001, and the tony hawk games.https://youtu.be/UlZVd5WNFMUI thought Mike Vallely was cool in the early 2000s.
>>42185she pretty good
>>42162>if you look at the bottom of the page you can see how many unique ips have posted in a threadIP's change frequently and VPN's exist. It's not a reliable gauge of unique posters at all. There probably really is only a handful of regular posters in these threads, which is why they are always shit.
>>42162>if you look at the bottom of the page you can see how many unique ips have posted in a threadnever realized that was a thing. I'll be careful not to samefag too hard early in threads from now on.
>>42157nope. you wanna chicken wing it and fall on the side of your forearm or upper arm and slide from there. I broke a rib with falling on an elbow and it sux
>>42195I think this guy>>42152is working on flatground tricks or something where there is little impact and tucking in your elbow works. If you're going from higher or bigger spots - like you said you need to slide it, I kind of push myself into a roll/ slide thing. Last thing anyone should do is curl up like a fetus and hope for the best
>>41895Bombing hills make me feel so cool but I know I just look like a nerd haha

None of us give a shit because were all dip shits and your the only smart one because you can see the hidden agenda. I dont know why you continue posting in a thread full of people you think are retards when clearly you have a 200iq. You're obviously too good for us. I bet you can even switch no comply.
>>42217Mein fuhrer doesn’t approve of samefagging
>>42218nope. im not even one of the original 2 people you were replying to. just another retard letting you know your shit stinks.
this is a long shot but can any of you guys noseslide to crook? like pop it up into crook. gonna try some tomorrow now that I have noseslides and crooks down. I've also seen it to 5050 (I think Kevin Rodrigues did it in some Supreme video), but I'm assuming it's a lot harder. anyway just looking for tips if you guys have them. probably just gotta wax that shit, go fast, and not be a pussy.I think one of my dream tricks would be switch tailslide (so basically getting into same position as bs noseslide) --> crook --> back180 out. that would be real nice, but there is a long road ahead.
>>42123>posting in a site where saying "nigger" is still allowedit's actually not allowed. one of the options when you report is "racism outside of /b/". if someone is being really annoying I will report them, jannies actually delete the post and 3day ban. but if someone is just casually saying "slapnigger" or whatever I won't report.
>>42221good luck anon. being able to switch up your grinds/slides is one of the coolest things. can you do any of that sort of thing yet? Most I can get is a 50 to tailslide and almost 50 to noselide but neither of those are all that impressive.
>>42223nope never tried before. boardslide hurricane and boardslide feeble are two that I like a lot as well. dan corrigan has a boardslide to hurricane tutorial where he says it's really easy, basically just leaning on your heels a bit and turning your board. that might be one to try if you're good at boardslides on flatbars. also just found the vid: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoovPOGJOc8
>>42221Maybe try it as a stall first, or something like this video to get used to popping up onto the ledge from the nose. It's something I've never personally thought of trying but I might give it a go next session as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1RTOu-vph8
>>42221https://youtu.be/KFPkPJquQiY?t=289merry christmas anon :]
>>42089> he doesn't know the feeling of riding on clouds before he busts a JOOCY kickflip over a manhole.
>>41909let me know how those wheels are. I've neer seen a single legit review of them but trust the Spitfire name. I almost bought some and want to eventually try them.
>>42230well i buy bitchboy 52s so I guess im a little better off than the big wheel chads when it comes to this trick.
>>42234If you still struggle to land it check out boardycakes and/or just sand down some old wheels
>>42221>Kevin Rodrigues did it in some Supreme video
I want a Natas Panther deck so bad. They need to reissue this one.I also want a Jason Lee Blind deck too.
>>42230>>42234>>42221I feel like wheel SHAPE will help with that. Classic wheel shape with the rounded edges versus a tablet or more straight walled wheel. it's like when skating transition, classic wheels are more forgiving on the coping and you won't hang up as easily.
>>42192>>42193how many ips do you post from? for me personally, it's one
mom just bought a new house with quite a bit of ashphalt driveway to get my shred on also there]s a decent shed I can maybe cobble together some ramps in there

How do you guys think riding 8.9” trucks with an 8.6” deck would go? I’ve ridden 8.0” Trucks on 7.75” with no problems before, actually better than 7.6” trucks.
>>41954thanks for the advice Anon. I was cutting pretty slow because the xacto is awkward compared to razor.
>>42269Chris Gregson does 8.6 and Indy 169 (9 inch axle) and he rips hard.
>>42134SLS is circus on wheels. The environment is artificial as are the obstacles. The judging criteria is gamified, which means if you do something like a full cab lipslide you will win, but it looks boring. This is what Nyjah's whole career is based on. Park riding is actually suffering from the same thing nowadays. Instead of ripping, you have dudes that are gaming the judges with flips, novelty grinds and other distractions. But Olympics will be even worse.
>>42242Damn anon that makes a lotta sense. Thanks for sharing
>>42134Street is boring if it’s not actually on the street.
>>42298This is type of competition skating doesnt catch on with skaters and its especially not going to interest normies for more than 15 minutes. They will tune in, see all these pros with their easy tricks on lock, be impressed, then notice how sterile and safe it all is and get bored. You need big air and vert and speed to bring people in, the shit that looks dangerous.
>>42298Nyjer has done some of the most insane shit in the streets though.
>>42311Does anybody even give a fuck at this point? The dude has completely ruined his reputation and is basically the worlds most famous kook. Even to normies hes an ass for hosting covid parties.
>>42312What has he done to ruin his reputation? I don't follow celebs or famous people in general.
>>42314Do you skate?
>>42317Do you skate?
>>42297Sweet, not sure why people tend to recommend undersizing trucks rather than oversizing.
>>42319Yes I do, thanks for asking.
if you create a new thread before this is the only one up I'm gonna find you and I'm gonna stick your crusty truck axle up your ass
>>42222CheckdAlso, what i was trying obviously to say was that there is thismoron who thinks by merit of posting in 4chan,all threads should be inhabited by racists.
>>42317I do, why?
>>42325They are, nigger.
Anyone got any tips on unwarping a water-warped deck?
>>42333if the layers are split you can shove wood glue in and C-Clamp it but i think you're going to need to just learn from your mistakes and get a new deck.really they're not that expensive if you look around enough
>>42333Buy a new one. Sorry.
>>42335>>42336It’s a surplus cruiser deck so just interested in warping it back into shape really, don’t really skate it on the reg, was left in a barn for years.
>>42337post a pic of it, but if its split layers and you're just cruising with it - wood glue and clamps
It's so hot today bros. I was skating and was drenched down to my socks. I hate the sun.
>>42340oh man warped like that? yeah i dont think there is anything you can do. maybe soak it or steam it and use a makeshift press from cinderblocks or something. To be honest if you're not doing tricks i'd just say fuck it and ride it like that
I got this longboard i don't do longboards and my little brother got it for me at a yardsale because he knows i skateboard. What do i do with it?So far i been riding it down to the mailbox
>>42342Give it to your little brother. Wait no, he'll get bullied. Sell it and he'll get mad. Give it to him to give to his gf.
Do NOT reply to the wrongboard agitator/resident troll.
>>42342Try using it for going down a mountain, you might enjoy more than you think.
>>42343he's married and they both thought i would love it. I was thinking maybe just using it as a display or something but it doesn't have neat graphics~ my other option is learning how to really ride it til i can kickflip on it or just let it chill in my garage
>>42346Give it to your girlfriend.
>>42346How much did your brother pay? Put it on offer up or facebook marketplace and sell it for 20 dollars more.
>>42348you don't ask someone how much a gift cost them, rude
>>42349Maybe if you're a bitch.
>>42349listen faggot. first of all your a faggot. second of all who the fuck buys something at a yardsale or whatever and doesnt go, "check out what I got, it was only $xx." thats literally the first thing you do when you buy something used or second hand. third of all your a faggot.
>>42320Wider trucks are heavier and harder to flip. With trucks wider than the deck you get less wheelbite and more stability, but also less turn.
>>42333Even if you superficially fix it, it will most likely break in a spectacular manner soon. Nanotubes etc.
Me before 4chan
Finally a day with minimal rain, went skating for the first time in like 5 days. Almost got a pop shuvit. Rain can fuck right off.
Me after 4chan
Should I skate in overalls ? I feel like my ass crack constantly shows up in my clips no matter if i wear a belt or not. Or would i look like a hipster try-hard?
>>42363A belt works too...
>>42363>I feel like my ass crack constantly shows up in my clips no matter if i wear a belt or not
Let me clarify, a belt worn the proper way.
I got some bones hard bushings and they feel hella tight while the nut is just flush with the king pin. Do they loosen up over time?
>>42371why would you get hard bushings if you don't want tight trucks?
>>42371What trucks are you running and how heavy are you
>>42374Indie 139. 180lbs
>>42371My friend runs Bones hards and they're always like what you described. Just eat the loss and throw them in a box. If you really don't like Indy stocks get Bones mediums. You might want to check the height difference between Bones bushings and Indy stocks though - changes the geometry.
>>42373I had mediums but they broke kinda fast. They were flush with kingpin too and pretty loose. I'm starting to get used to the tight trucks though I'm popping much higher with them
>>42341Left it out in the rain for 5 mins and then clamped it for a few hours, seems to have worked
>>42376I ran the same and Didn’t have any issues, you don’t have like cup washers on?
Now is my turn to ask - is there a fabric with the durability of denim that allows more mobility? I'm even willing to sacrifice in the durability department. Chinos, shorts, track pants, bombproof nylon or just good ol oversized jeans?
>>42384I just have the top circular washer on the top bushing that came in the box
Actually yeah I'm not doing oversized jeans. Don't want to look like a retarded zoomer.
I think I'm going to look for some 19th or early 20th century farmer inspo.
>>42385Dickies Flex jeans . I use them for work and skating
Anyone else using Shorty Doh Doh's? Anything other that the 100a bushings feels terrible to me and I don't even ride my trucks tight.
>>42261enders part was sick
>>42394Yes I use the soft blue ones.
>>42408I have a hard white one for you right here ::zziiippp::
>back injury from work is keeping me from skatingI just got a new deck and trucks too
>>41892do people seriously shop by brand? i just go to the local and pick out the deck with nice design, theyre all made in the same factory anyways
Will practicing hand stands help me with inverts?
>>42423you seriously have never met someone who only rides one or two brands? you've never seen a sick video or something from a company that influenced you to buy a board? >theyre all made in the same factory anywaysnot true
>>42426> you've never seen a sick video or something from a company that influenced you to buy a board?no. i see a sick video and it makes me want to skate and get better not buy their boards. do you see a cool ad on tv and immedietly empty your pockets or something?
>>42428do you not realize vids are one big advertisement?
>>42423Yeah, I only buy local brands that source from a local wood shop.
>>42382if you want tighter feeling trucks switch to barrel bushings like the ones that come on ventures.
>>42394I used the white ones exclusively growing up. I'm only 145lbs and I like the 97 duro purple bushings some ventures ship with. I can still turn, but I'ts not darty. never tried the black ones, but I'd wager they are good for heavier guys if they actually last.
>>42394How heavy are you?
>>42423>do people seriously shop by brand?are you really this dumb?>i just go to the local and pick out the deck with nice designwhat if pizza accidentally makes a good design or something?
>>42428>do you see a cool ad on tv and immedietly empty your pockets or something?it's about showing your support to the brands that create shit you like. I inevitably have to buy a deck every couple months or whatever, so why not give it to the company that I think is doing a good job, rather than some company I know nothing about?
>>42423>theyre all made in the same factory anywaysnah there's like 3 main woodshops and then a handful of others. if youre a poltard that's afraid of china you probably wanna avoid dwindle. unless you cant resist that rock hard wood.
>>42443>wanting to avoid Chinese products makes you a poltardCuck
>>42423reasons>deck size>wood shop>deck shape>cool graphicwhat else?
>>42185chick skaters are something else. im inspired.
>>42185HOLY SHIT! She's as good as the average 14 year old park rat!
>>42469Wrong. She has a vagina.
Would it be offensive to say to a female skater "your skating inspires me because it looks like an old man re learning skateboarding in his 30's" this too honest?
>>42469>>42470impossible lipslidenose manny nollie tre outfront board on a knobbed 7 stair railway better than the average teen "park rat" who probably never ventures out of the park. those are hard tricks on real spots. she's only 22 and will get a lot better, and she's not an asshole. seems okay to me.
>>42471you'd have to leave your driveway and talk to a girl to do that m8. don't think you're pulling off that type of hammer.
>>42472yeah she's def amazing.
>>42475damn your response made me feel kinda bad youre supposed to troll back
>>42470>She has a vagina.makes her quite authentic compared to some other female skaters
Has anyone noticed this before? not trying to be political.
>>42478Yes, it means stomping on jews. Even ADL knows it.
>>42298>full cabMods should add a special category for reporting people who say "full cab".
>>42356>>42358Hahaaaa, nice, i actually found this show (Ted from Cincinati) after I learned that it existed, on some illegal streaming site. It was soooo weird, yet interesting too.
im gonna go skate to beastie boys tracks
Do you guys listen to music while skating? What are some good headphones?
>>42497*Hava nagila stars playing in the background*
Literally find a single flaw with this guy
>>42112>Slapforum is one of the coolest things of skateboard culture ever.cringe
53 or 54 mm Conical wheels?
>>42505doesnt matter. but 53
>>4250554 are just 53 with one more month of life in them
>>42493What's wrong with saying full cab?
>>42511just stupid bullshit. everyone says full cab except nerds. he probably says shit like "heelflip front shuv" instead of "varial heelflip" too
>>42514Powell is a based white man that actually cares about his product instead of making shekels from marketing. What's wrong with Andy's general appearance?
>>42522Balding virging moustache weirdo. It's not he's fault though, he's actually autistic.
>>42523Autistic people invent and make the best shit.
As a man I can't judge another man based on whether he's balding or not. I don't believe it's entirely based on genetics either like our modern feudal lords would like to have us believe. Our living conditions are shit. Can't pin it on another dude.
>>42526You can judge a man that tries to keep his long hair while balding, and looking like a retard, instead of shaving it.
>>42527Well keep judging then and keep thinking a chrome dome looks cool. Most people wouldn't even notice a thing about Andy's hair, in fact I didn't. And I'm still not sure whether there's a real problem there. Maybe you should do something about that psychosis of yours.
>>42528>projecting this hardSomeone asked about his appearance, I responded. Go be butthurt somewhere else.
>>42522Powell is only cool to actual boomers, downhill skateboarders and people that watch NKA on YouTube.
>>42530So what's cool to other people?

I'm just dying of curiosity to see how they skate.
>>42538I've skated them, tend to have weirdly short tails.
>>42535So you're 16.
What about this graphic? But less shitty of course.
>>42500I skate in Galaxy Buds+ and Prodigy is the best for skateboarding
>>42551It's not that bad>>42511Half of something does not make something's name be "full something". The trick's name is caballerial.
>>42526balding is genetic dude. almost every single man is balding, just at different rates. some are bald by 30, some by 70. i see balding men with girlfriends daily.
>>42565>cabawewiawAs an ESL I can't pronounce that. I have to say full cab.
>>42565full cab has less syllables. stop being autistic.
>>42477kek is that real
>>42503people hate him because he is a little corny and is definitely too "safe" for skateboarding, but he's also definitely one of the best skaters out rn.
>>42618Quirky and interesting, sure. One of the best? Not too sure, depends on your definition of best.
>>42645He is however
>>42657No, one of the best skateboarders right now.
>>42565I think of it as caballariel on half pipe/bowl and full cab on street/flat. How bout that?
>>42535>black label>coolMaybe in 2005 or somethin
>>42514Powell peralta is based
Has someone made a new?
How does a skinny white guy moving into college start skating? Dont have friends(.) that skate or a board even, just played a shit ton of skate 3 and tony hawk games
>>42551an /esg/ design sounds cool but i don't like that font
>>43709literally just hit up your local shop, get a deck and start skating. look up youtube tutorials on how to ollie and shit. practice. talk to people. ask for advice. you're in college, skating is probably one of the best ways to meet people and get pussy.
