Fuckin tell me about it anon. TXfag here. Grew up loving solo sports but not a single on available here. No surfing, climbing, or parkour. Gonna move to east Florida because it's all so tiresome

I love love love snowboarding but I live on a fucking island and the nearest mountains are 3+ hours away. I only get about 3 days a year to go ride, if I'm lucky.
I've managed by also falling in love with skateboarding but goddamn i want to live in the mountains

If you're in love with surfing the answer is obvious.

If you lift three or four times a week for 3 years straight and go on a semi-dirty bulk you can easily become a bearmode gorilla by the end of it

I'm a skatefag but always wanted to try surfing. Too bad I live in a landlocked country.

I wish I had a big enough space where I could build a ramp.
>>
>>9227
Yeah at least keep yourself stoked filming and maybe try a diet or something that cures the arthritis, dont let them tell you it cannot be cured son
>>
>>9404
Yeah I do low carb, mostly carnivore. Weed and humira helps too
>>
>>9406
Nice, I dont know much more but I heard fasting will also help

i always wanted to play with skateboard on the balcony
>>
>>9227
Why not? I can't think of anyone specific off the top of my head, but I'm sure I've seen loads of people over the years from all kinds of sports and passtimes that take ancilliary roles with that activity because they still just want to be around it and be involved.

Wish my parents got me into Judo as a young kid. I would without a doubt devote my life to a competitive career

I didnt learn hardflips until my 30s.

you can heal your arthritis. but it wont happen with a MD. You just need to rebuild your cartilage and connective tissue.

Lots of mountains have on-the-ground rope tows to get up the slope, anon. Do yourself some research and I'm sure you'll find somewhere you can go. Fear is nothing if you let it be nothing.
>>
>>10839
Fix your posture and footwear. You shouldnt be going numb from working at a print shop.
>>10875
Those ropes only go up the bunny slopes.
>>
>>10827
Nice; sounds like a friend of mine.
>>
>>10839
Do what >>10909 said and look at some better footwear. Comfort is king if you're on your feet all day. Hell, comfort is king even if you aren't.
If it keeps up after that, consider seeing a doctor.

>Those ropes only go up the bunny slopes
Well shit boy looks like you gotta get over your fear then
