This indigenous invite only comp is happening next month and I think I wanna go, but Im not sure it will actually be worth it - though the founder was out at SPOT trying to network, wonder how many pros will actually make the trip to this competition.

the park theyre gonna build for it looks nice tho.

Checked

Has anybody else checked Mike Anderson's new spitfire part? I liked it. It really had early street skating vibes, mainly because it often had a sequence of tricks filmed at the same spot, in contrast to standard montages of having barrages of different tricks at different spots. This way you can take in the spot and appreciate skateboarding.

Not on a res, but the indigenous in this city are big on the whole "unceded territory" thing - since the region was heavily colonized in the mid 1800s. Im pretty much gonna go unless the price of the tickets are exorbitant, Ill share the pics with /esg/ when I get em developed.

have you taken the time to try watching trick tip videos? it helps a lot to try and understand the proper footing and technique. even if you have, make sure you try to change things in little ways to see how it affects the resulting motions you get from your board. even as a pretty experienced skater i can say that sometimes it's easy to get stuck in a pattern where you misplace your feet for certain tricks, so always try to adjust and give it some practice with an alternative approach. you'd be surprised how tiny little changes result in completely different results.

all in all, keep practicing man. it doesnt always click right away. if you're motivated to learn and can retain enthusiasm, then you can do it bro. best of luck.
>>
>>94623
Like that other anon said; you may have just learned how to do it wrong and keep repeating the same mistake out of muscle memory. Try to think critically about bailing tricks. Eg: if the board winds up in front and away from you, you need to put your body weight forward more.

Also, try other types of skating. People couldn't ollie for decades when skating started being a big sport. Cruising bowls and doing freestyle things is lots of fun. Maybe try that for a while and come back to skating.

But mostly, just do more of it. Just focus on an hour and a half session and really try some basic footworky things to build up your balance and confidence.
>>
>>94640
QRD? I've watched a bit of this video and it's obnoxiously edited and the host is already annoying me. Plus in less than 3 minutes she's gotten details wrong, such as Knoxville being a writer for Big Brother before he did the self defence video.

If it's just "MTV/Tremain/Paramount manipulated and encouraged Bam to become a party animal and washed their hands of it"....yeah, sorta, but there was also 10 entire years where Bam had nothing to do with Jackass and nobody was forcing the booze down his neck. The more time passes, and the more clean and sober Steve-O and fucking Novak get, the less excuses Bam has. Plus, even if his contract for Jackass 4 was super strict and unfair with prescribed medication, they were giving him yet another chance to make MILLIONS. I feel bad for the guy, but his sobriety and mental health is entirely his responsibility at this point.

I keep them that thight for railstands.

8.5 deck, Indy hollows (2 different bushings because it seems like most Indy bushings in shops are dogshit and fall apart after a single sesh), Bones wheels and bearings.

I'm tempted to turn my other board into a purely bowl thing (fatter softer wheels, rails, risers), but then I get the feeling I won't bring it out enough because I'm so used to this setup.

bros i feel bad for derailing this thread, can we just discuss what we plan on working on this spring and upcoming summer. Personally, I will be working on my ledge skating and flatground tricks so i can enter in this big GOS my local does every year at the end of summer. I finally got my set up dialed and will dedicate this week to halfcab variation of tricks. any tips are welcomed.
>>
>>94686
I want to skate more street and get out of my comfort zone. I discovered some ultra crusty spots in the woods.
I was always a gap/rail dude but started to skate more flat/ledge this year. You could try halfcab manuals, crooks, 5-0 for a start, fast halfcab flips are sick.

I'm getting at that age where my knee's hurt and Polar looking sick.
>>
>>94686
Get the basic flatground stuff down so I can do a little line of some kind. Ollie, FS 180, shuv/pop shuv. Would be happy to have those at this point. Looking to do 50-50 to tail stall on a mini as it doesn't seem too much more difficult than the 50-50.
>>
>>94677
Yeah, idk, I was stuck indoors for a while and wanted to get some freestyle basics down on my carpet. Getting it to do a rail pressure flip thing is super hard due to the size, but any time I land rail by accident now it doesn't freak me out too much.

>>94686
My goal for the end of the summer is an invert/some sort of handplant, but I'm a ways off yet. So far in the last few weeks I've gotten rock fakies and tail stalls on bigger ramps, a couple rock n rolls on smaller ones, and 50-50s/slashers, as well as some bigger drop ins. I'm working up the balls to start really attacking high coping, but I think I need to start doing fly outs and early grab airs first before I try putting my hand down.

Anyone else find it hard to focus on a single thing when there's so much other fun shit to learn? It's a good problem to have.

>Anyone else find it hard to focus on a single thing when there's so much other fun shit to learn? It's a good problem to have.
yes always been like this too and i think it's why im not very consistent, so im not sure if it's the best problem to have i will land something twice during a sesh and consider it mastered and move on. also am just overwhelmed by everything i want to learn and if it's not clicking instantly i tend to move on after about 10mins of trying. i guess for me it's a lack of discipline, i don't really go to the skatepark to train

>>94667
Understandable. She’s a bit annoying, yeah, but she’s actual a lawyer if you can believe it. The deeper into the video goes, the more weird things get. Basically Bam is under a guardianship with a woman who has a YT channel. The last person that she was in charge of was an addict, and they claimed she was schizophrenic but wasn’t. Then she went missing and turned up dead.
Well, Bam is going through similar run around as her, and their is literal police body cam footage where they’re calling Bam schizophrenic as well. If that’s not weird enough- Novak posted 2 workout videos on his Instagram with he and Bam a month apart where they’re wearing the same clothes- it’s the same video. Also the same clip with 2 pics were posted on Bams Instagram where he’s in the same clothes but different settings with again a month apart. So not only is he not in charge of his account, but they’re using recycled pics for some reason.

That's my personal issue with the shoe, the tongue flap is really loud on it, (like I'd never wear them with shorts), but I cut them off one time and it somehow looked more off. I've decided to just keep them on.
>>94696
>Anyone else find it hard to focus on a single thing when there's so much other fun shit to learn? It's a good problem to have.
Absolutely. There's an endless possibilities of lines and shit to try, I'll never do everything in a single session. Keeps me chasing that high since there's always something to save for the next sesh.

>Novak posted 2 workout videos on his Instagram with he and Bam a month apart where they’re wearing the same clothes- it’s the same video.
yeah dude they and bam do this when he is sober. he gets sober for a like week and they repost some old video of him saying whoo go bam and everyone with a 5 minute memory is like whooo yay! or maybe hes not even sober and just reposting the video for attention and say look how good im doing! its not a conspiracy, addicts lie and manipulate

>Also the same clip with 2 pics were posted on Bams Instagram where he’s in the same clothes but different settings with again a month apart
yeah the dude has been dressing the same since he was a kid dude, how is it a conspiracy that he wore the same outfit twice?

youre a schizo bro. do you even skate?
>>
>>94699
Bam is a fucking drunk. The fact that he is wearing the same outfit for months is not a conspiracy that's just what drunks who only care about getting drunk do. His wife even said in the Instagram dildo video that the reason she stopped fucking him was because he doesn't shower or brush his teeth and he smells like shit.
>>
>>94699
I've known a couple lawyers and some of them are shockingly stupid. Surprisingly enough, you don't have to be smart of be a lawyer. I watched more of that video and she got even more details wrong, such as saying the first Jackass film came out in 2010 or that Preston was hired because he ate a bunch of bananas. Truly awful "investigating" there, takes all of 2 minutes to Google both and click on the first result to get that straight.

>woman who has a YT channel
>drug addict is misdiagnosed and winds up dead
Don't see what's weird about this. Drug addicts that are manic enough to be misdiagnosed with a mental illness don't do well for themselves most of the time.


>Novak posted 2 workout videos
People post older clips on Instagram all the time for the sake of keeping the profile active. Even well paid influencers don't take new videos every single day. It was 2 weeks apart too btw, not a month. Bam's profile isn't managed by himself any more due to his rehab program, so whoever has the log in probably talked to Novak (if it's not Novak himself) and got the clip to post it, give him a little boost. There's nothing secretive about that, the caption on Bam's video of him working out is written by someone else giving people an update on how he's doing. He could be in there away from social media for months as terms of his sponsorship or rehab pledge.

>>94706
If all of that stuff isn't just taken on the same day (which is probably is), he probably has a handful of plain outfits while he's in rehab. Pretty standard stuff.

This isn't related to skateboarding but I have to share it anyway. I was driving through Los Angeles today and this black bmw was following me. I looked in my rear view mirror and I'm pretty sure it was ASAP rocky in the car with a bunch of other black guys. We were on the freeway and he was in the far left lane but he had to get over to the right lane so he literally just stopped in the middle of the freeway and waited till someone let him in. I saw it in my mirror. Lmao

No, all skateboarding is hard and takes a lot of dedication and practice.
>>
>>94797
They're generally less stressful on your joints to land and you fall way less often but the risk is way higher if you do fuck up badly. I think the base skill barrier is higher, but once you start getting air it opens up a whole lot more.

How many tricks do you need in your bag, or how good do you have to be to be pro?
I want to get really good at skating or either blading, but I’m already mid 20’s so idk what path I should take.
I mean I’ve heard of people going pro with just ollies, but then again it’s 2022, and everyone and their moms boyfriend seems to skate, so that’s why I wonder if I should just try blades on the side and see how that works out for me.

>>
>>94883
you obviously have to be above a certain bar to go pro but it's also about who you know and how marketable you are. seeing as you're asking these questions, you don't really know anyone in the industry, and since you're posting in here you have no marketability, so it's not going to happen but it's still nice to dream.
>>
>>94852
I don't mean to be mean but if you weren't already on flow at the age of like 13-14 then you're probably never going to be a pro skateboarder. Most guys these days are turning pro in their early 20s or younger.

You seem like you're not really too knowledgeable about the skate industry or skateboarding in general so I would just say abandon any hope of being a professional skater and just have fun and skate as much as you can.
>>
Only slightly skate related but what does everyone in /esg/ do for work?

I'm getting to a point where I'm realising I kinda hate my current career path (construction - masonry) and I'm wondering if it's not too late to change to something different. I'm almost 28. I'd like to do something artistic but I know that's kind of unrealistic.

I don't even know what "pro" means any more. I guess you could be a mediocre/bad skater who posts on social media enough to get sponsors (core skate brands or otherwise) and say you're a "professional skater" without lying. I know multiple people who haven't even been at it for a full year yet and make a little bit of money that way. Not really the kind of person I think of when I hear the word "pro" though, but then again the whole video part and demo thing seems to have shrunk drastically in the past decade.

Im putting it together like a sweatshop worker, the building I work in is adjacent to some of the design dept, and I get to rub shoulders with some of them though so its beneficial from that aspect. Also its alot better then a typical factory setting as its actually RUN by the brand rather then contracted, like 99.99% manufacturing for the garment industry is.

Still a cool gig - just not the best job in the building.

honestly if you're artistic at all you could probably use that way to strong arm yourself in the industry and kind of start from that point. lots of dudes who are artists/photographers/general media creators end up in the skate world and you might be able to squeeze a pro board out of that

Southbank. It's pretty much just a flatland spot with the odd added obstacle that doesn't flow into shit, the worst being this one whippy qp that leads towards a rough section and lots of tiles with gaps in between them. The actual banks themselves have 0 transition so you have to sorta wallride or do a little manny hop thing to get up them smoothly. I find it really hard to maintain speed so they're a fun challenge to get used to.

But honestly, it's just one of those places that's famous for being famous and being around for so long, and not for being a great spot in itself. The stair gap is a great photo opportunity, but there's nothing to it that you couldn't find in an underground car park.

Running and jogging are high impact. You're dropping all of your weight on your ankle, knee and hip joints with every step. If you've ever pushed yourself running for long enough, you'd know that your joints will feel sore there afterwards. It adds up over time. That's why runners are so skinny; it's much less stress on your body.

Warm up and stretches before your session.
Wear good insoles appropriate for your feet, for your skate shoes and your walk day shoes. Check if your soles offer support for your type of feet (ie flat or arch-y)
If you have any skin disease or any old chronic injuries on your feet or toes, get them seen by a doctor asap. You can't skate as well as you do with less toes.
Keep your feet clean, dry, and healthy. Watch your standing and walking posture. Skate forever.

started learning on pic related and I recently built a new board with thunder hollow lights and stf 53s. I'm finding the new board way harder to ride around town with, the asphalt is noisy and vibrations are awful, and small bumps and ledges are way less forgiving. can I fix this with larger/wider wheels if I just want something to cruise around with?

>>95162
Just to cruise? Look into Ricta clouds 78b and some riser pads

>vibrations are awful
That's because you got hollow trucks mate, should've stuck with standard if you're going to cruise around.

I would suggest some riser pads if you go with a wheel bigger than 56mm.

Oh and the other anon is right, rictas clouds are great.

I have hollows and standard thunders and they ride the same on rough surfaces, but differs on wheel size/dura.

I ride 58's with no risers and fairly loose trucks and have never had wheelbite when just riding around.

I see him all the time at Cantelowes, really nice guy, absolute savage in that bowl. That video is not even remotely close to his best. A couple weeks ago we were there, some other little non-skatery kids showed up and started sorta dicking around near the bowl, threw one of those novelty mini board things in. Nathan drops in from the deep end, does a ridiculous line around the stray board, grabs it mid run, does 3 or 4 more walls, stalls on a rock and hands the board back to kids, tells them "don't throw your stuff in the pool", goes back in fakie, fuckin' fakie front shuvs into a 50-50 stall, then pivots back in fakie again and goes for another few walls.

Kid's only 17.

You simply don't have the genes to handle such precise hyperborean trucks.

>>95215
ask him why he chooses to dress like an absolute retard
why would you be so good at skating and then dress like your at clown school
like luke blovald at least has a style
skateboarding doesnt need the image of being for fucking autistic band geeks
>>
>>95240
At least he can easily fix looking like a retard by changing clothes, anon. No such luck for you, though.

Cannot skate miniramp to save my life, I generate way too much speed and slip out or shoot my board out of the ramp frequently. I feel fairly comfortable on more open-concept type transition. Any tips? just wish i could be a miniramp chad
>>
>>95285
Can you do the basic shit like axle stalls and rock to fakies?
>>
>>95286
pretty good at rock to fakies but not much else. Trying to work on simple fakie tricks like tailstall and switch rock. I guess that's also a part of my discomfort with miniramp, obviously.

Do you want to talk videos? Allright, Troposphere-Expansion is one of the best to come out in this godforsaken year.

It reminded me of Polar. What is Polar up to these days?

And does anybody from Europe have experience with Film trucks?

Learn to de-pump (so dropping your weight on the way up and lifting your weight on the waydown). I had to break a habit of pumping in to my drop ins on top of de-pumping if I had too much speed. That and shedding speed with a kickturn on the wall or revert on flat.
>>
>>95288
I would just work on getting backside 50-50s, switch rocks and then frontside slash grinds.

Those 3 tricks combined with a normal rock to fakie will just allow you to flow back and forth and frontside and backside in the mini and as you get more comfortable with them you can build off them and learn how to do other fun tricks like disasters, rock n rolls, smiths and feeble grinds.

Also as far as fakie tail stalls go, I'm a fairly good mini ramp skater and that's one trick I really hate. I've just slipped out on my ass too many times doing it. I don't even bother doing it anymore, I just do switch rocks or fakie smith stalls.
>>
Skating mini-ramps is so much fun bros. It's just one of those classic things that you can do for hours without getting bored because there's so much different shit you can do and it's only technically challenging, not scary challenging like skating a big bowl.

It also seems like it's gone way out of fashion too. It's just big tranny or nothing now. I haven't seen a good old fashioned 3-4ft mini ramp at a new skatepark in a long time.

Tom Penny had one of the best mini ramp styles ever. His frontside flips are so dope.

Tom Penny was so relaxed on a board, it just looks natural. But yeah, speaking of the bigger stuff, Oski is like the modern version of Tom Penny. Some of these moves are just too fucking fluid for the obstacles he's skating. This must be what skating without fear looks like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbDqr5LhoCU

In American, he had some ties for fancy dress and cos he paid for 'em, he wore 'em. I guess now he's now "the guy with the ties" - but who cares

Fun to watch, keeps skating for a minute after his run is done, just buzzing off the skate thing not giving a fuck - my mate down 'lowes was saying the same thing.

nah they arent. the first guy was pretty average and tough to get through. there was a slow as fuck back tail shuv on a tiny ass ledge around the 15 minute mark that almost made me turn the video off
i finally turned it off 3 minutes later when capn jazz started, we went from memphis hip hop to some like european jazz to emo and none of it really matched or flowed

He was skating with his gay meme friends from Instagram and pizza skateboards team rolled up and stole their element flatbar.

There was like a civil war on that shit. Weck had bounties out on pizza skateboarders and they still sell the flatbar on their store just to fuck with him

Pizza sells 30$ boards tho. I’m not paying 60$ for some crayon scribbles on my board. I’d rather have a blank than their designs.

their crew was getting into an altercation with a security guard and it ended up with jesse viera punching him or hitting him with his skateboard, security guard hitting his head on the ground and brain damaged, like coma/permanently fucked up. No one from Pizza said anything about the guy or acknowledged that it was you know.. bad, just posted FREE JESSE VIERA on social media.

Element. How are you guys not all hardcore Element fans? Oh well, I guess not everyone is learning Japanese.

Generic board pic. I obtained some shiny black 52mm 95a's that are really fun for me, as a beginner. It originally came with 54mm 95a's, I think. I keep those on for hills (I also have some longboard wheels that are suuuuper gummy and don't have a problem with stupid little asphalt rocks, but I don't want to tolerate the possibility of wheelbite and I, moreso, don't want to fuck with risers because I am already short.) and skate with the blacks at my local skatepark and in my garage. Although I usually don't allow blacks in my garage.
