You're never too old/fat to skate.
Skateboarding is 90% mental 10% physical. You're never too old to take a bite into concrete
Skatepark Etiquette: Its nice to stop peoples boards and shoot it back to them :^)
Trick Tip: i dont know man

Favorite stupid trick:
Ollie.

I'm never gonna stop practicing and making them higher. I feel good being able to ollie over or on to shit that my friends cant, even though they have more tricks under their belt.

The premise is cool and I think you have the right idea, but I think you should run with it and keep iterating. The 3rd one has the most interesting stuff going on visually, with the tail wrapping off and then back on to the board and other details. The vulva-for-shock-value I'm not sure about. It might work better on the ramp where people just get momentary glimpses but sitting here it seems like maybe too much of a distraction.
>>
>>69491
*also I think the sharply contrasting hair color in the 3rd one works better than the subtler palettes. The lipstick, eye color, tattoos, horns, piercings are where you want the subtler color variations and it seems like you've got that dialed.
>>
>>69507
>>69508
I appreciate the well thought out and detailed criticism. I'll definitely make more in the future (and try to keep improving with each iteration) but for now, I'm going in a different direction and will be making some really trippy stuff.
>>
>>69509

Thanks for posting them! You're doing interesting work.. It also seems like you are making rapid progress on your concepts; def interested to see more of what you come up with.
>>
>struggling to do a trick
>start swinging my arms like a dance move in time with the trick
>suddenly able to land them

How the hell does this work? I can't get a decent pop shuvit and then I just "puppet" it with my right forearm before the pop and now it swings around waaaay better. Same for the ballerina "arms in on the crouch, arms out on the pop" for an ollie and the shit goes way higher. Movements like this shouldn't do anything.
>>
>>69512
it's your shoulders, not your arms. shoulder motion is the key to a lot of tricks, keeping your body open, shifting weight, all starts with the shoulders
>>
>>69512
the fact you're thinking consistently about what you are/aren't doing with your arms is probably fucking you over dude. nobody thinks like this unless they're purposely trying to fake their style. and considering 100 percent of a pop shove is in your back foot, yeah it shouldn't do anything. sounds like some mind game fuckery
>>
how long did it take you guys to get “good” at manuals? nose and tail. i feel like i’m missing something because i still can’t do them consistently for a long time and it’s been 2 months of dedicating time to them
>>
>>69512
Are you sure you're not autistic? Apparently they constantly worry about what to do their arms.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKdkR_YANac
>>
>>69526
>for a long time
are you talking about just rolling around and doing a manual or ollie into manual/nose manny? i don't think I ever got "good" at them or dedicating any special time into learning them, i'd just do some mannys when skating around at the park and occasionally ollie up a curb and manny it. like the poster talking about his arms, I think you're over thinking your trick and not letting it come naturally and thus you're getting a mental block about it. don't worry about trying to "get good" at them, just do some when you're skating around your park/block/street or whatever. honestly kind of a hard question to answer because i think most skaters just pick them up naturally.
>>
>>69438
I hate laces on skate shoes, just the thought that they can come loose or enough rubbing on the griptape fucking them over doesnt sit well with me
these stay tight, they look like shit but its a skate shoe meant to be crunched up skating so it doesnt have to look good

i just wanna be able to roll around like a whole parking lot on one. or down an entire hill. on the rare chance i do manage to hold them 10+ seconds it feels so good

sorry for my non answer btw. the only times I can really push a manny like that is if it's my actual trick and not just something i'm doing while cruising down the street. if you're burnt out on normal ones try nose mannys, they're a fun change of pace and don't be scared of letting the nose scrape. alternatively, check out the sl*p forums in the trick tips sections/the "what trick are you working on" thread, lots of really helpful tips on any trick you can think of. I read some shit on that place that really "unlocked" fakie mannys for me and they've been a favorite ever since

How the fuck do people mess up axle threads? I've been skating since 2001 and NEVER messed up threads. Not even landing primo on street over and over has messed up any threads.
>>
>>69550
I've fucked up mine only a few times but thats only because i really like to wallie/wallride and occasionally i'll just run into the wall when i fuck up and it kind of thrashes the axle but otherwise they're fine. they've definitely never gotten to the point where i need to rethread the,

Honestly, I got some DC hitops with a velcro strap around the ankle recently and it's make me question why we use laces at all any more with how well it's holding up to abuse. Even if there was just some sort of shield along the outside of the foot you could put over the stress points of where your laces go through the holes it'd save so much money.

Must be a Big Lace conspiracy.
>>
>>69560
yeah man I cant fucking stand lances anymore
I dont care if I look like your god damn grandpa shits comfy
>>
>>69513
I don't think it is though. I get that for rotational tricks, but for something like an ollie or shuvit it shouldn't make a difference. Plus with shuvits I'm usually only moving my forearm.

>>69514
Works on my machine.

>>69531
If I was autistic I would be much better at skating by now.
>>
>>69562
>I don't think it is though
please stop being retarded and talking about skating when you can barely ollie. your shoulders 100 percent influence any trick you're going to do regardless of if you're rotating or not. go and try your pop shoves right now with closed and open shoulder stances and tell me how it works out for you

you know you can just add a couple of drops to your shoe laces and they're basically indestructible right?

I also don't want to look like im 10

A couple of drops of what?

Velcro is a thing with adult shoes now though. I don't really care how I look while skating and neither should anyone. It's a skatepark not a runway, the worst look is not being on your god damn board doing tricks.

>>
>>69684
oh whoops.

just add a couple of drops of super glue on the edges of your laces where they come in contact with your grip. it'll make your shoe laces last an eternity (at least from my experience) and basically make ripped laces a thing of the past. I also do the same on the stitching area around where the top cap and side wall meet (my ollie/heelflip area) so i don't blow out my shoes quicker then I should.

Won't that stick your laces there for good though? Sounds like it'd be a pain in the ass to change them when they do break.

Someone mentioned parachord. What about leather boot laces? Do they hold up any better?

Pic related are my shoes btw. The velcro strap only covers the ankle, but should at least stay on if the laces break. Great protection against shark bite too.

>>69729
Put your front foot behind the front bolts in the center of the board. Put your back foot on the center of the tail with the ball of your foot right at the edge. Bend your knees and lower your weight. Lift up your front foot until your tail hits, then lift your back foot and push your front foot forward.
>>
>>69697
I'm not Asuka poster. I'm London Anon.

>>69717
So far so good for me. The only real damage so far is the usual front foot toe and sole damage, and the letters being rubbed off the strap. But I've only had them a few weeks and not been skating much. DCs have served me well in the past though.
>>
>>69729
You essentially jump up above the board while also kicking the tail into the ground so it bounces up to meet you. Front foot levels the board out for extra height/to stop the back wheels from colliding with things you're trying to get over.

VLskate has great videos on it that break down the elements of the trick and show you what to work on bit by bit.
>>
>>69691
lol no offense but these look like straight up trash. I get that skating isn't a "fashion show" (kind of an ironic statement since skating and fashion have always gone hand in hand whether you want to admit that or not), but if i'm doing something where im going to spend the majority of my time looking down at my feet, I don't want to look down and see some dog shit shoes

post clips and edits. how good are the skaters on /xs/?

pic rel is myself about a decade ago
>>
>>69526
define good? only recently I learned how to hold my manuals for more than 100 feet. i just casually started practicing them starting at the top of a bank at my local park and before you know it i was doing circles around the park.

Nose manuals are a different beast. usually before you can dial in technical stuff like that and regular manuals for distance. you have to really master your fundamentals,

my question to you would be: how long have you been skateboarding?
>>
>>69765

nice. I only asked for something recent because I could have sworn I've seen that tuck knee clip before. you look pretty young in that clip but still have a nice style and thats pretty rare for kids. you mainly focus on transition i'm assuming?

anyone have experience skating a warped board? is it just a lost cause? just snapped my board and I have two back-ups. one is warped because the fucking shop sold it to me like this and only mentioned it when I was ready to pay and set on my board, and the other is an old brand new Flip Arto board that I have just been hanging onto for years because I thought maybe i'd throw it up on my wall but I came to the conclusion that the art isn't even that sick anyways

what should I do bros? skate the warped board? skate the Arto deck? stop being cheap and shell out $65 for a new deck altogether? if it makes a difference I honestly couldn't tell the Anti-Hero I was buying was warped, I was just focused on the concave.
>>
>>69796

It should flatten out when you actually get on top of it should it not?
>>
>>69797
I've read that it should happen after a certain point but people say skating a warped deck is such a chore that some can't even make it that far. I guess I don't have much of a choice so if anyone cares about how it skates I'll keep anyone up to date

to be honest, I heard Deluxe has such great customer service I was just going to email the company and tell them my local shop sold me a warped deck and I simply didn't know better. I'm 100 percent sure they would have shipped me a fresh board but it feels like a scumbag tactic. The shop sprung it on me at the last second and I told them I'm probably not even good enough for it to matter, but the dude assured me skating warped decks suck. but I bought it anyways because it was $30. it shouldn't even have been for sale anyways but its whatever.

Getting drunk and heckling cocky instatrenders for being 2 cool for the rest of us at the local skatepark.
You see,there exists a delicate balance between gatekeeping faggots out of skateboarding, encouraging shy/beginners, and heckling cocky rippers to keep them from getting too big for their britches (for their own good). it's up to you as a 25+ year old skater to enforce it. That's how we do it in the south. Kids I used to heckle when they were teenagers grew up to be hardworking, responsible adults that I am great friends with. What if nobody set them straight? They might be 27 thinking they'll still get sponsored one day. Now that's embarrassing.

Now... stop doing that shit where you "rub" your foot into the griptape. it's a meme and doesn't do anything but wear your shoes out faster. There is maybe a handful of pros that do it occasionally, and then nuskaters copy it to a comical extreme. You will thank me later when you don't have holes in the sole of your shoe after one month.

>godspeed and baker 3 and really want to find some more skate videos of that quality
godspeed and baker 3 are not comparable whatsoever, I honestly don't know what kind of videos you are looking for lol. Baker 3 is a pure time capsule of a different kind of era in skating where big hammers down stairs were the hot selling point and it has classic baker style "hijinks" that you don't really see anymore. Godspeed is like a soulless zoomer version of that where instead of being a pile of shit they want to be wholesome friendly vibes but you have people like nak who is the biggest retard in skating.

anyways, if you're trying to find entire videos on youtube you're going to run into music issues since older stuff didn't care about copyrights and the like. Skate Video Vault is going to be your best bet if you just want to stream stuff

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCdWX0BcVX7HZcWYcUmdaY2w

if you actually want to download videos, slap has a huge thread where people post entire ISOs on mega for free to download.

https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=70334.0

if you want recs though for more videos like baker 3 or zero videos feel free to ask but don't be afraid to branch out. I used to be really about the kinda skating in Baker 3 and put off watching a lot of other kinds of videos when I was younger/new to skating. big mistake on my part

anyways i just searched that slap thread and found this, have fun

>>69869
thanks bro i really appreciate it, as for some of your points I'm not really sure what you mean about godspeed trying to be wholesome and friendly, it shows a lot of lifestyle footage where the guys are having fun together but I just saw it as footage of a bunch of friends hanging out, there's literally a scene where one of the guys gets tilted and pushes some dude over, I don't see what's "wholesome" about that. Also one thing I really appreciated about godspeed was how well the editing accomodates the music, a lot of the slams are timed to sync up with the beat of the music and I thought that was a really nice touch. I've also only been skating for a week and godspeed was my first ever skate video, so I don't really have a standard to compare it to. Baker 3 was definitely more fun, but I still enjoyed godspeed. I agree that nak can be kind of cringey though, especially the whole joker comment he makes.
>don't be afraid to branch out. I used to be really about the kinda skating in Baker 3 and put off watching a lot of other kinds of videos when I was younger/new to skating
I'd be happy to get some recs for other styles of video, I did like the old bones brigade video, seeing mullen's freestyle was really appealling and I've actually started to get an interest in freestyle techniques in general because of it.

They just are good shoes. One of the local shops guys skates with us and whenever I mentioned I needed shoes hw would say that word "maranas". I don't even know what it means.
Next model hopefully will be the Chris Joslin version. Stuntman skater, but if the shoe is as durable as the one I have with a better design, I 'd like it.
>>
>>69858
Can confirm, you need to "pull it in/gather" the board. I actually started putting my foot more in the middle of the board, rather than ollying with just the tips of my shoes. It feels like embracing the board.

And then, you need to stary separating upper body from lower body. Put more of the motion into your feet and legs, sketch out the motion in the air. Remember, those boards we have today were designed so they won't require much strength in manoeuvering them, like the vert-decks-turned-street of the late 80s.
So lift your body and trust your legs to pop and lift. That's the name of the game.

ended up hanging out with some friends after the sesh. anyways..

perhaps wholesome was the wrong word to use, but just try to see where i'm coming from. in the Baker videos, these dudes are literally strung out piles, drunk/high all of the time. Jim Greco wrestling his board from security because he was trying to take it from him, or footage of them drinking together as a crew at a bar feels very real. they're grimy skaters skating bad parts of LA, the types of reactions they'd pull feel part of the daily life they would have experienced trying to skate LA in those times..but they never had clips where they felt like they're trying too hard to force the idea of a "crew" or creating drama for the sake of drama. meanwhile in godspeed you have countless clips of people hanging out but it always, to me at least, feels very forced. like they said "hey, im about to start filming, so try to act like you guys are hanging out and it's all good vibes!". the clips when they're arguing with people/creating drama feel the same exact way, very unauthentic. Robert Neal causing drama for no reason because he's "trying to get clips" feels so fake and forced in an age of private skateparks and big travel budgets/good money from sponsors. It's fine if you liked it though, i'm just being a nit picky boomer. skating was sick and the editing is very on point. watching Ishod skate is so insane, legend in the making. some of the lesser known dudes killed it, and while i don't really like Alex Midler, that back 3 into the carwash bank was crazy stuff
>>
>>69875
and as far as other videos go, i don't necessarily mean freestyle videos or big vert clips. it's still classic street skating but it's an entirely different vibe from the way LA skaters are doing it. you should check out Eastern Exposure 3, Static IV, some classic Alien Workshop videos like Photosynthesis, Habitats Mosaic, or Blueprints Waiting For The World. I grew up on videos like Baker 3 and didn't really see some of the videos i mentioned until I was older, and I wish I got a chance to see them when I younger. it opened my eyes in the sense that good skating isn't just the craziest tricks down the biggest sets of stairs or the longest grind down a big handrail. You can skate with raw power and make something like an ollie out of a bank look great. you can do quick footed lines and show off your board control. you can skate cellar doors and handicap ramp to bars or barriers. just a totally different type of street skating compared to what I knew, along with different music and artsy editing. if you want some newer stuff i can go down that path as well, but when I go back and watch those videos today, I can really see how they inspired some of my favorite current day skaters (Brandon Westgate, Mark Suciu, Tom Knox, Mason Silva, Alex Olson, to name a few).

or if you wanna stay on the hammers route you need to watch Flips Sorry. even if you don't but you haven't seen it, it is an absolute classic
>>
>>69898
it's the total opposite for me. I can't tailslide for the life of me and when I start working on them, I get frustrated and kind of give up and just start working on my front/back nose slides and try to get them cleaner or learn trick in/out of them. Tailslides feel like such a mystery trick for me despite being such a fundamental ledge trick. kind of bums me out desu
>>
>>69890
He got knocked the fuck out then woke up and was fine. Fence was perfect height to stall so we drug it up there. Dog loves skateboarding so he ran in the fence to watch
>>
>>69911
the way you learn tailslides is just by grinding them out on a tiny ass ledge. even a curb. you just mindlessly grind out getting into them without sliding, even coming straight on if you want. eventually it will be second nature, then you work on sliding them. they are a very easy trick once you get them down, and they feel good too for some reason.
>>
>>69925
thats just the brain doing its natural thing, problem solving in the background, constantly deleting the wrong movements. it happens naturally through repetition. if you have the time listen to andrew hubermans nine club episode. really cool listen, and bunch of helpful information to help your skating.

I'm here to report that bigger wheels + better bearings ISN'T a meme when it comes to more speed. I knew it would be faster just from simple physics... but it's a HUGE difference down hills! I slapped on some 58mm wide wheels with Bronson G3 in place of my 52mm wheels, decided to go down the same decent hill I always do right off the bat. Luckily I had tightened my trucks just a couple of turns to avoid wheelbite from the bigger wheels, because once I got about 1/3 of the way down the hill I could already tell that I was going WAY faster than normal, at the point where there was nothing I could do but ride it out. I was cooking BIGLY and I would have got smoked bad if I didn't make it. Never been that fast on a skateboarding in 15+ years of skating. It's kind of addicting desu but I'm not gonna do that again until it's colder out and I'm wearing winter clothes in case I gotta eject.
>>
>>69926
QRD me on his "muscle memory isn't real" thing, because I'm sure that's just clickbait in the description meaning he describes it a different way... because I didn't skate for over 10 years and when I got back on a board I could nollie flip(albeit sloppy). couldn't do a normal kickflip for some reason though.

Why does the Slap forum have such a large amount of leftists? Like extremely leftist in the "trans women are women" kind of a way.
>>

because hardcore skaters tend to be out skating instead of posting online. sure, real skaters can post online... but they rarely join forums. they just stay on social media and other normie shit. Slap is full of people who started skating after skating went woke with trans fags and gay pride merch.
>>

its a pretty moderate opinion in most of the world. most skateboarders dont give a fuck either way despite how many people on here wanna believe skaters are all secretly homophobes
>>
>>69946
99% of skateparks would go apeshit if a trans showed up... outside of the internet, shit like that rarely happens. the internet has given a false view of reality and overrepresentation has spilled out into the real world. it's like those b-tier horror movies where the shit comes out of the TV. the only reason it spills out into the real world and takes off is because normal people don't pay attention or notice until it's too late.

Oh yeah retard? Whats gonna happen? You think they're gonna heckle the tranny? Kick em out? Beat em up? No, nothing would happen, they would let the person skate and move on. Stop living in a 90's skate jock fantasy world. Not to mention that skaters these days dont go apeshit over anything. they get walked over by karens and scooter kids and other dorks all the fucking time. Nobody gives a shit about trannys, they only make up like %0.5 of the population so anyone who does care is probably living on the internet anyway.

well desu, skating feels almost inherently leftist at times. those kinds of views and attitudes don't really rub me the wrong way irl, but thats because it rarely comes up. However on Slap it's everywhere. and while annoying, it's easy to just roll my eyes and keep going. the real issue is the moderators hold that exact same view and will delete posts/ban users for any kind of wrong think whatsoever. you don't even have to say anything offense, but it won't stop a bunch of people from ganging up on you in the forums, keep saying you're being transphobic/homophobic/misogynistic or whatever and you get your account banned because the mod feels the same way. they're extremely sensitive and it's the absolute worst part about that board. the forum has merits; the filming/editing, shoes/gear, and trick tips/skate questions sections are absolutely fantastic and full of great info, but the other parts of the forum are full of the most high horse fart sniffing faggots around. very ironic since it's tagline is "the forum where skaters come to talk shit". in that thread about the Breana Geerings Jenkem video, people were talking about how cool she was for talking shit, how she would fit right into slap, and how you don't have to be nice to fit in skateboarding. but someone posted some shit like "i'd rather watch Miles Silvas kickflip the gap between her teeth over her skating" and his post was deleted/account banned. lots of instances of stuff like this happening. never used to be like that and i've lurked since 05/06 and have had an account since 09

thank god we post on a place where the mods are calm and collected individuals who don't have any bias whatsoever :^)


and i don't think its forum culture thing. I lurk/used to post on another forum that was inherently way more leftist, and it wasn't nearly as pozzed as slap is. they could make jokes about each other, you could call shit gay/people fags, and even if someone labeled you as a transphobe or some kind of bigot, your account wouldn't get banned. Slap is just full of thin skinned weirdos who don't seem to live in reality. look at that thread about weck and the joke he made. who cares if it offended you/you found it unfunny? just ignore him and move on. but 14 pages of dudes talking about how they're so high and mighty is just pathetic. taking screen shots of any pros/shops/"influencers" who liked or commented on the post and trying to get them canceled is just so corny. i don't know how people can function like that in real life. sometimes I'll read some shit on that forum that sounds like a straight up caricature of someone on the left, like a /pol/ style shit post but its totally unironic and sincere.
like I said, i don't care that slap might be "leftist", but the average poster is just so high and mighty and the mods are even worse, it makes the site almost unusable if you're trying to post on it. thats why I said I just stick to the gear sections

I'm gonna work on them, i just need to humble myself. feels weird being able to do other ledge tricks on some pretty standard sized stuff to going to skate a curb to work on a trick I should have learned 10 years ago.
>they feel good too for some reason

they even look like they feel good. its such a treat to watch someone just casually tailslide a ledge in a line, they look so basic but extremely stylish at the same time. gonna focus on them as I go skating this week since its finally cooling down.

>>69926
thanks for this, I don't really watch nine club anymore but this sounds very interesting.

>you don't have to learn anything, just what makes you happy.
I know that, but tricks are what makes me happy. don't you guys enjoy pushing yourself? don't you like getting creative and thinking about ways you can string a line together? I'm fine with the "bag" of tricks that I have but I definitely skipped some fundamental tricks that I should have learned as a kid, and since im getting up in age, it makes me want to learn them before I'm a full boomer. thats cool if you want to just tick tack around and push on your cruiser type set-up, but i'm trying to back tail the ledge on my way to the store because thats the kinda shit that makes me happy.

>drank himself retarded
he didn't "drink himself retarded", retard. he fried his mind with years of psycs abuse. it's almost like you ignored the years of Penny boards having mushrooms on them or acid type visuals.

>>70007
yeah, I feel the same exact way. kind of sucks because Slap used to be a pretty funny place where people obviously didn't take themselves seriously, and now it's an entirely different place. it's a big circle jerk of the worst kind. you can change your views and get rid of "toxic" attitudes/posters without becoming such a no fun allowed shithole where you're in constant worry of being banned because you said something that some faggot who doesn't leave his house to go skate found offensive.
>>
>>70008
I agree, but by principle of preserving creativity as the highest value, the one that differentiates skateboarding from all other board activities, I have to say that you don't have to learn anything.

careful, you will get flamed by simps for saying the truth. it used to make me mad when a couple of years ago people started simping for chicks that aren't even very good... but now I've learned to not care because it's gone even further... they now simp for trannies that literally just do manual shuvit out of on every 2 inch high curb they can find. literally trannies creating board companies just to turn themselves pro when they skate at the level of LITERALLY a kid that has been skating maybe 3 years. it's so pathetic. You know they just do it to "be the first" aka attention whore, because otherwise they would just skate for fun and not try to put themselves on a throne that isn't comparable to their skill level. The fact that they want to leapfrog dedicated skaters just to be woke and a hero proves their true character.

all it's doing is making people ride decks longer. I used to skate down to the third ply, but now it's going to be the 4th or 5th, just to save. and when the economy fully collapses because of the war with China (canada won't ally with USA) We'll be back to making our own boards from scrap wood.

because it makes no sense that these board companies and shops have to sell other shit just to get by when their main gig is hardgoods. the retail profit margin just does not make sense, like wholesaling decks from board companies at like 30-40 a deck and selling it for 50-60 makes absolutely no sense. and when you look at a $50 in the 90s, inflation is around 75, so if you are gettinga deck cheaper than that you are actually getting a ridiculously good deal

Brother, either you are dumb, blind or purposefully obtuse. Inflation has risen, prices have risen, things have indeed changed.

and yes, maybe an extra $20 for beer and weed, but also RENT, EMPLOYEE SALARIES, BUSINESS LICENSES/PERMITS, BILLS, and that's just scraping the surface of the business side, employees also have homes that need rent payed, families/children that need feeding, etc etc

In what other industry would you like the employees to starve because you feel a "privilege" to get cheaper product?

I found this article about "There" skateboards(the not real brand that got created just to claim some trannies were "pro" when they actually suck.)
> Skateboarding has long been a significantly exclusionary sport, primarily the hobby and profession of white, straight, cis men – meaning, perhaps unsurprisingly, that women, POC, and queer people with an interest in skating have largely been left on the sidelines. In recent years, however, its gates have sprung open, as female and queer-focused skate nights pop up and crews assemble all over the world, and people of different identities come together to support each other as they get involved.
LMFAO! This is the perfect example of how white leftists push black people to the side in order to promote their own first world problems. Since when have black people been excluded from skateboarding in the last 20 years?
>>
>>70175
as a matter of fact, there have been arguably just as many mexicans in skateboarding in the last 20 years as white men... after all, california. white leftists sure love being the center of "minority" issues don't they?

while it is annoying that some /esg/ posters let trannies live rent free, I do think the dude talking about "There Skateboards" has a point. Skating has never once felt like an exclusionary sport. One of the main reasons I was drawn to skating in the first place (besides the fact that it is fun and looks cool) is that it attracts a lot of people who seem to fall through the cracks of society. and that might sound corny but I was drawn into 4ch for the exact same reason. as a result, I've seen/skated with people of all colors/races or whatever. I can understand that these people might want a "safe space" for queer skaters but i gotta ask, has that ever even been brought up on a session? Sexuality is the last thing i'd be talking about when skating with a group of people. Unless you're wearing a shirt that says "im a huge faggot" I wouldn't know who was gay and who wasn't and I wouldn't care, because skating is full of weirdos. It's cool that this company is making themselves feel welcome but it seems like a phony effort because skating has always been welcoming to freaks of any kind. I've skated parks all over my state growing up from 12 to now and i don't think i've ever run into any scary cis white males who are blatantly homophobic or hunting down trannies to beat up like some people would want you to believe. maybe i'm just blessed to not be from some flyover shithole.

>>
>>70201
lol thats YOUR experience, there was this white trash red neck hick fuck that called a friend of my a faggot for skating in a crop top. and that was in 2018.... my friend and lots of other gay people have similar experiences so just because you, (who im assuming is just another normal white dude) never saw shit like that firsthand doesn't invalidate queer people not feeling safe in the skate community. if it was really as welcoming as you make it out to be they wouldn't feel the need to make the queer spaces in the first place.

nah the dude was borderline harassing him, following him around the park and throwing slurs at my friend for fucking what? literally just for existing. it wasn't banter or shit talk and the fact that youre so quick to reduce it to that means youre not even open to hearing about an actual real experience queers have in the skate community. you just want to keep your delusion that "skating is fun and welcoming for all" that only white dudes get to experience and try to parrot that on to everyone else. face it, any community where white men are the majority is going to fucking suck for everyone else in some way or the other. it is what it is. theres no escaping jock shit, racism, and homophobia when that's the core demographic.
>>
>>70212
okay tough guy
>>
>>70203
lmao. is skating the only hobby you have? are you not interested in any other niche kind of activity? because someone calling you a faggot is such a catch-all insult that gets hurled around by dudes towards anyone who dares to go slightly against the grain. Standing in line for art-house movies, waiting to get into the local venue to play DnD, midnight releases of video games, hanging out with people dressed in punk rock attire, its just a meaningless insult. its insane to me that a group of people who spend all day eating shit and taking brutal slams can get so pressed by a single incident that it shapes how they view a hobby instead of just blowing it off and skating.

>skating in a crop top
to be fair if i was skating with someone dressed like that i'd expect the same thing from someone driving by.

Industry-wise Rocco sacked a rider for being gay because the image of skateboarding at that time was fullt jockified and it was no coincidence that this followed the transformation of skateboarding from expression sessions to jock sports. So no, it was not welcoming.

Apparently weirdo trannies deserve credit for simply trying something. They don't have to be dedicated to something for a long time in order to be respected. They just show up and are an instant celebrity... hmm... sounds kinda like the reason they probably put on women's clothes in the first place, to get attention. every tranny i've ever seen is the archtypical incel loser, and then they find this new trendy thing to become showered with compliments online. nothing but mentally ill attention whores who never worked a day in their life for anything they have. they don't live past 30 on average, so that's that.

It varies. I definitely remember skating being jocky and homophobic in the mid 2000s....while also being full of twinks and emos and "lol wouldn't it be funny if I put my dick on my bros face lol" humour.

I think Bam Margera is/was the big contradiction in skating as a singular person; constantly calling people "faggot" but getting matching pube tattoos with his favourite eyeliner wearing softboy singer. Being exclusatory and protective of skating while also selling out and appealing to casuals and mall skaters at every turn. Being good but also being shit.

It's just about being on your board at the end of the day, even though that's not very interesting to talk about. Everything around it is ancillary.

Your not factoring in that most manufacturers have moved production out of the US and Canada. I’d wager the scale and cost savings have resulted in profits outstripping inflation over the last 20 years. The ones still paying first world pay and not cutting corners have a case. But the idea that I’m selfish for not wanting to pay more to a company that has done everything in its power to cut expenses by finding the absolute cheapest way to do things regardless of their ethics is stupid. This has absolutely nothing to do with taking care of their employees.

I took out one of my wheels to take out some of shoe lace that has been stuck in it for about 2 or 3 sessions without me noticing and now it doesn't roll as well. could I have done something wrong when I took it out and put it back in? I'm going to get new bearings and wheels soon anyway. Do any of you actually clean and lube your crusty bearings?

put the shoelace back in

>Do any of you actually clean and lube your crusty bearings?
Yes, and you should too. Remember: alcohol cleaner and thin sewing machine or gun oil for lube. If you use citrus cleaner, make sure you also give them a quick rinse with water and immediately dry them with a hairdryer, otherwise you'll have some stick residue left over.

1. most boards are made in north america these days
2. wood is expensive
3. youre a fucking idiot if you think that board companies are making an increased profit by keeping prices stagnate for 30 years
4. actually your just a fucking idiot in general, your post hurt my brain

these generals do a stellar job of perpetuating the stereotype that all skaters are ignorant morons.

Do canted trucks make much of a difference? just got some new trucks and I notice that they turn slightly to the left if I let the board roll away on its own. I know it probably doesn't make much of a difference if the board rolls straight when Im on it but it's just one of those annoying things.
>>
>>70416
this, it was doing good work
>>
>>70426
yea can be annoying, make sure your baseplate isn't noticeably turned one way and if your trucks are tighter they can stick more
>>
damn i didnt even realize there would be a board that would be a home for skaters on 4chan. stoked on that

>Do any of you actually clean and lube your crusty bearings?
Nah. sometimes i'll squirt some lube for my garage door in there but i just go form the sides i can't bother to take them out. most of the time i'll replace them if they get shitty.
Throw out whichever ones are bad and save the good ones and use those as spares.
Way easier than doing what this >>70418
guy does
>>
take out your bearings, take off the shields, and put them in 91% alcohol and shake them around. Lube is nice but probably optional
The next time you get new bearings do this and keep the ones that still spin. Youll probably have 5 or 6 still good bearings to work with.
If one bearing of your new set goes bad you can swap.
Do this everytime you get new wheels/bearings and youll never have to buy a new set cause 1 went bad.
People who take out all their bearings to clean them and then put them back in are either autistic or third worlders who have to skate thru dirt/sand/gravel/feces on a daily basis

1.I doubt that though all of them used to be. the average manufacturer wage in Mexico is $2 an hour where I’d wager most North American boards are made now
2.Lumber prices have been near what they were in the 90s until this past year
3.if in 1990 I sell 10000 X for $20 with an $18 my cost per unit I’ve made $20000
If In 2021 I sell 15000 X for $20 with a $14 my cost per unit I’ve made $90000
I’ve made significantly more money even accounting for inflation. Through outsourcing labor and increased production efficiency the manufacturing cost per deck has gone down. While the number of casual skaters(people who mostly buy decks infrequently) has decreased for the last 15 years, the number of serious or “core” skaters(people who purchase decks regularly) has increased. Leading to year over year profits in the area of hardgoods with late 2020 being particularly lucrative
4. I’m sorry thinking causes you pain

>these generals do a stellar job of perpetuating the stereotype that all skaters are ignorant morons.
They really do.
>>
>>70438
all you're doing is speculating on what companies are doing and why theyre doing that. I really can't argue with someone who is just angry that they might have to pay an extra 5 or 10 dollars a board when they've been the same price for 30 years. You sound like a 14yo communist. Get a job loser.

The new Szafranski part is so tight. Sober legend skate videos are the best.

Trying to get gud after 10 years of not skating. Landed 2 heelflips and thought I would be able to land 3 today, but I can't even get my board to flip correctly. Frustrating the shit out of me.
