Bros i feel like wearing knee pads is a game changer for me. I can try so much more shit in transition now and not worry about bailing as much because i know i can just slide on my knees. If you're trying to learn to skate tranny seriously bros, get some knee pads, it's so much better.

These are the most memorable tracks from skate vids, off the top of my head

>Neil Diamond - Forever In Blue Jeans from Dan Drehobl's part in Krooked Kronichles
>Motorhead - We Are the Road Crew from Jon Allie's part in Zero New Blood
>Fang - The Money Will Roll Right In from Tony Trujillo's part in Anti Hero Cash Money Vagrant
>Gray Matter - I Am The Walrus from Geoff Rowley's part in Flip Sorry
>Johnny Thunders - Chinese Rocks from Jim Greco's part in Baker 3

Those are just the ones that stand out to me. But i think to be honest the whole Zero New blood soundtrack is my favorite, I could probably sing the words to every song off that video.
>>
>>96595

How common are sprained ankles if you only do flat ground tricks like pop shuvits and ollies
>>
>>96770
It depends on your skill of balance and mental acuity. If you become lazy or have a hard time keeping your board and yourself under control, your risk of spraining something, typically, becomes greater. Another common vector to notice is the type of shoe that you choose to wear. The shape of the shoe can easily lead to twisting your foot in a way that damages your muscles.

bros i really wish i never stopped skating and im glad i started again when i did about 2 years ago but wish i went a little harder. i feel like theres alot i can do if i actually try but whats the point... so i just skate mostly flat these days because who am i trying to impress, idk just ranting... this vid got me stoked on skating but i wish i was stoked on it enough to want to git gud
>>
>>96818
Don't worry anon, we all eventually struggle with losing the "git gud" motivation, but it just means we have to appreciate skating differently. People play all kinds of sports without stressing about how they stack up to others.
>>
>>96813
i actually have a classic board myself although it is an 81 powell freestyle. if your board is indeed from the mid 70s, your best source of information on period correct parts would be ads in skateboarder magazine which was around then. however they mostly used roller skate parts, the bushings are probably just regular chicago style skate bushings and the bearings might be by Fafnir or might be unbranded. if it was me i would not try to replace the parts at all and just keep it as an ornament. maybe get clay wheels, as thats something period correct and unique, although in 75 they did have urethane.

I sprayed the weeds in the drain ditch. Now all I've got to do is wait and sweep or blow all the dried stuff out and it will be good to skate!

It's sick that japanese skateboarding is kind of looking more 'normal' now. I remember like 10 years ago all you would see out of japan were dudes doing like weird skating, like Andy Anderson style but without the big rail chompers thrown in. It was cool but kinda just like a novelty to watch instead of a clip like that where the guy is unique but he actually has a flowy style and a respectable bag of tricks.

Hey frens,
Pretty soon I might get some boards made- i have a connection at a wood shop who has made decks for some big companies and we're in talks right now about seeing if he can make me a few. I'm not looking to get huge or anything- although that would be cool- but I'm looking at dropping a grand , so if it falls I have a decent supply of boards and I didn't loose too much. If it succeeds then I have some extra spending cash for myself and the family and I get some more made.
I got back into skateboarding because of these threads and this is my favorite skateboard forum still- so I thought I'd share this news here. It might be a few months but I'll keep you guys posted on the process. And if you're interested in some decks with probably not so great graphics I'll let you know when they'll be available...

He's not going to be on her side.

Seriously, people need to actually watch this "11 year athlete's" videos before they comment. She stinks, bad, and is a pure sore loser. The tranny she lost to wasn't great either, but they at least pulled off a bigspin off a ledge. This girl has really shocking balance on transition and takes a lifetime to set up for tricks. You'd honestly assume she was at it for a year, maybe two max, and far from being contest ready.

Really makes me wonder what third place was like....
>>
>>96859
Lmao how did you find me. WTF lol. I've posted my face in here enough in my clips I guess
>>
>>96900
people keep saying she sucks as if thats a relevant argument whatsoever, it has fuck all to do with that, even if she was the best female skater in the world and won over the tranny that wouldnt change the fact that the tranny was cheating by joining the womens contest. like if someone took a bunch of steroids, went to a lifting competition and lost they would still get fucking disqualified. but apparently people cant grasp basic logic and what is the thing actually being argued.
>>
>>96903

i wanna see the footage from the competition where she placed 2nd in the mens comp too

the only thing that matters in skateboarding is if your good and not a kook
>that the tranny was cheating by joining the womens contest.
youd have to talk to redbull about that
> like if someone took a bunch of steroids, went to a lifting competition
annnndd you have no idea what your talking about nice.

talking about cheating in skateboarding is the gayest fucking shit kys
>>
>>96900
>This girl has really shocking balance on transition and takes a lifetime to set up for tricks
Like 90% of professional female skaters.

>>96896
I don't think she even has a boyfriend right now? She's pretty much doomed to be a cat lady. I feel like her boyfriends would start dating her for the novelty, like oh yeah I'm dating a pro skater chick then eventually the biological instincts would kick in and they'd realize she's an SJW with a body incapable of bearing a child.

>>96904
Agreed, it's the principal of the issue that matters and I don't think most people care who is bringing it up, it's the fact that someone is bringing it up at all. I don't think there will be any serious change because of this, redbull has too much to lose by acknowledging the issue.

Also I'm just gonna say it bros but taylormay Silverman is kind of cute... Not really in the face but good body. That's probably why Nora is seething so hard.

what the fuck are you talking about, loads of dude every day settle for ugly and way less interesting girls, some would kill to date a girl thats not butt fuck ugly that loves to skate, hobbies are a good foundation for a relationship nora has good height and a strong build to make large nonmanlet sons.

>>96889
It does kind of change the narrative a bit when she's double dipping her contest wins by applying to the men's contest as well. That said maybe there's a solution for trans skaters in comps, like they have to be extra frail from the hrt, 110 pounds, add weights to the deck, something.

>>
>>96948
not sure what this means but i actually talk to women, the average american woman isn't the most interesting outside of being a hole. the state of western women is dire. plenty of dudes would be down for a girl that likes to skate let alone get paid for it, acting like nora is going to be perpetually single or reduced to a novelty is just not based in reality

>>96938
>good for breeding and making strong sons, i dont see the problem with this
LOL i genuinely don't think her hips are wide enough to have a child dude. I would guess that's why she's like 30 and single.

>>96951
The issue is that nora would never settle for an average 5/10 skater guy, her ego is too inflated from the millions of simps like yourself. She will only ever go for jock guys, and all of those jock guys are probably going to end up with surfer/bikini model chicks 10 years younger than them instead of an aging sjw like Nora. She's pretty much fucked if she doesn't settle down soon. She'll be just like all the other skate industry females who constantly talk about how their career was shunted by the patriarchy.
>>
the trans chick is getting harassed and had to close her ig while the kook kike bitch is getting money thrown at her for existing and is being paraded around conservative media as a pro skateboarder while referring to nora as a blue check mark
this shit is wack and anyone using skateboarding to make their trans athlete arguments is a fucking loser especially if you actually skate. this is probably the worst thing to happen to skating in a long time
>>
>>96953
Maybe the troon will an-hero? That would be so bad...
>>
>>96952
> I would guess that's why she's like 30 and single.
who knows what her actual deal is but women with careers tend to wait later in life to settle down, look at places like NYC 30 year olds there are one of the biggest single populations men and women it's the norm now. You obviously don't like nora so you're projecting this empty eggs carton incel rhetoric on her but the reality of it is that's she's one of the biggest faces in skateboarding and will most likely be fine if she ever wants to settle down start a family and shit. Yeah maybe she will have to settle for a nobody eventually but most pro skaters date complete nobodies just literal who womemes who does fuck all like everyone else. Nora not being in some power couple relationship with another famous person is not the horror story you're trying to make it out to be.
>>
>>96953
I think it's good discourse to have because eventually some kook shit like weck entering female comps in a wig will happen but I think if skate comps start going by skill level division or find a solution for this now the better. These things need to stop being avoided there needs to be some standards put in place now, I don't think this is bad for skating. Everyone sticking there fingers in their ears trying to ignore biological difference between men and women are the ones regressing
>>
>>96955
You think the NYC over 30 dating scene is an indicator of normality? Those people are fucked.

Here is the ditch that I sprayed. Some healthcare guy, who came to assist my grandmother somehow, saw me with my skateboard and asked if I'd skated it. He said people used to when he was a teenager. I told him he should hop on a skateboard and he told me he was too old to do it. :( Anyway, I think the weeds need to be sprayed more than once, because they still look healthy.
>>
>>96957

Maybe if I lie to the cops and tell them that it is mine and that I lost it, they will help me lift it and give me a ride!

you just know this guy skates super slow while he sets up for his double pressure flip that bounces all over the ground and he has to put his hands on the ground so he doesnt fall off the board.

He's obviously a very talented surfer but that doesn't always translate into being good on a skateboard. I feel like most surfers i know who also skate try to mimic surfing too much in their skating and it takes away from it.

>I skated in this contest and was appalled that Taylor even won second place! Her skateboarding skill is far from world class, she won by being a hometown favorite! She put on a freestyle flat ground routine in a street style contest which literally, actually robbed the street skaters of their street contest win. The other women of this contest do not recognize this hateful behavior and we stand in solidarity with our sister. And the way y’all put photos of her on this broadcast that she didn’t consent to is sickening. This is not the last you will hear from me about this Taylor Silverman

She was only skating for a year in this video, that's a perfectly fine trickbag for a year of skating. The top video is from the last year though, and I honestly do not believe anyone can skate for 11 years solid and improve so little. She DEFINITELY took a huge break or something, there's no way. She looks like she's a foot taller than the trans skater, supposedly has 11 years of experience (which, what, the best street trick she has is a fucking front boardslide), and she does some freestyle moves in a street contest? Get fucked.

Right?

>>97196
A bunnyhop is an action in a game called Counter-Strike in which you combine jumping with flicking motions to the left and right, alternately, while in midair, to gain more speed than is offered by simply running. The method for doing a tictac is strangely similar, except jumping in a bunnyhop is equivalent to lifting the board up to turn it in a tictac.

Sorry. Your three question marks gave me uwu vibes, so I felt the need to explain might be there. In terms of a bike's bunnyhop, I would argue that the equivalent would, indeed, be like doing an ollie. I don't know, though. I barely know any skateboard trick names. lol.

I am not confident in my ability to jump, but this has pushed me to focus on riding switch. It is a fair tradeoff for the time being. It is fun just hopping on a board and then forgetting which stance you normally ride in.

Front foot in the middle, back foot from back to front, spin the board, repeat.

Yo so this is a question where only probably the more experienced skaters will understand what I'm talking about.

Some time in the last like 20 years skateboarding style developed this thing about foot stance where the fashionable way to skate is to have your front foot sort of just behind the bolts, and you are meant to skate around like this as much as possible. I'm not knocking it because I think it looks good, and although I've never really tried to do it, I think I should, or at least narrow my stance a bit so I don't have this rugby player look going on.

So do any of you guys do this and if so do you do it without thinking or do you have to make a conscious effort to do it?
>>
>>97242
Sick, what's the coping?
>>
>>97243
You don't have to narrow your stance to straighten your posture- or at least you shouldn't have to, but most people don't focus this intensely on posture while riding because of the overall level of dynamics that are required to balance and pull off tricks with a high success rate and in a timely manner.
>>
>>97245
It's not about straightening posture, it's just about having a narrower stance so your feet are a bit closer. For whatever reason it just looks better. I don't know how people could do it naturally For me it feel most natural to have the back foot on the tail and the front foot over the bolts, not behind the bolts.
>>
>>97243
its always been like that. or else you look like snowboarder, or worse... a surfer
>>
>>97243
I think it's just the most "neutral" way to place your front foot for a set up for an ollie/flip trick. Dead centre is too far back and costs more energy for a straight pop, on the bolts or further up is too nose heavy and might throw you off when you swap into a push or whatever.

But my riding stance is still a bit weird, especially my back foot.
>>
>>97244
Bent piece of 2.5 dia fence pipe. I bent it with some very careful layout lines and then strategicly cut slots in it with an angle grinder to bend it to the proper radius. I have never seen this done, or even heard of it really. I'm sure coping gets bent like that by others but its gotta be rare compared to just using a hydraulic like you're supposed to. We had no access to a bender and no money to buy/rent one
>>

Sick, i'll be interested to hear how it grinds.

yeah it's actually super comfy imo to cruise around like that, feels very natural to me not even sure when i started doing it but ik it has to be partially from mimicking others and overtime after spending alot of time pushing around, skating place to place just being on my board a lot not like one of those people that only skate at the skatepark ...that stance just werks and feels practical for setting up for tricks i don't do it consciously anymore it's just my default to have a narrow stance unless im doing slappys or bombing a hill and need to be riding bolts for stability. interesting question anon i think a narrow stance is for sure a divider between beginners and well-seasoned skaters since it requires more coordination you can always kind of tell if someone is comfy on their board when they cruise around like that

Dude i've been skating for like 14 years and I can't do a single flatground trick other than front shuv. But i can fs grind a 9ft bowl. It ain't all about the flip tricks.

Does anyone struggle with popping flip tricks too high, I try kickflips and heel flips heaps but they always get caught in my feet. I know I need to raise my knees but it feels like an unreasonable amount of effort

I have the exact same issue, I've found trying to pop quicker after setting up rather than staying crouched has helped. There's worse problems to have though
>>
>>97487
I was trying the same thing last week and it was working out better. Was too focussed on setting up today, thanks I'm going to think of this tomorrow when I have a sesh

>I'm thinking of switching to a type of board I can't ollie on

Yeah, nah, don't do that. Getting ollies down stairs in your first year isn't bad. As this anon says >>97431 it's not all flip tricks. Fuckin' flip tricks didn't even EXIST for decades when skating started. Being able to just mill around is lots of fun. Have you actually tried shuvs for a while though? If you can ollie that well, it shouldn't be TOO hard to get them down.


Speaking of which, do many of you know people who have a big trick bag but 0 balance or swagger? There's a couple of people I know who can do a good few tricks and even make small stair sets (maybe 3-5) but are the most herky jerky looking motherfuckers just riding around. Every time I see this one person set up for a trick, they're so awfully balanced and stiff on their board that it looks like they're about to crane themselves.
>>
>>97443
I don't think anyone would mind sacrificing a few karats for increased strength, but on the flipside, the shape of trucks might lend itself to the integrity of them. There is just so much that I, myself, cannot confirm.

Mark Gonzales is a fat, autistic drunk. His skateboarding is wrapped around the simplest tricks (Gonz only knows the basics of skateboarding), and in addition to ollieing, a few fun and clever lines or just pushing were made as a video part. There would hardly have been popularity if there hadn't been a constant flock of competent skaters around Gonz to fix actually skateboard in the videos. Alcohol was consumed but Gonz's only way to deal with it was to twist the joke about his excessive drinking because he simply could not admit that he had problems with his lifestyle. After all, the only merit of this "Bes skater of all time" is probably how many skate video parts he could make about ollieing and pushing.

So he's the buddha of skateboarding?

I don't even think gonz drinks dude. He's just autistic.

That's still fucking sick to this day. I went through a small phase of Gonz disrespect but similar to Hawk, when I put their careers in perspective and see that they're still skating, I can't help but respect it all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzNFZHRq_U8

>>97558
what does he do? skateboard autism? dont care really.

Pushed around for the first time in around a year last, still got a few tricks. Can't walk now though, it's too easy to lose your legs. Can't wait to get them back.

I like the cut of your... jib. :)

>>97647
A-always has been.

Do you guys use spacers or no? How many clicks loose of "doesn't spin" do you guys keep your wheels without them? Contrarily- and more importantly to my non-accustomed brain- how tightly do you screw in your wheels with spacers? Also, how do spacers even work? Like, how do they stay flush between the bearings? Do they just kind of sink (sync? lol.) into place when you ride...?

And no, I'm not making the new general thread. I'm still hurting inside over being range banned at my last house when I don't even post. (And subsequently banned in the IRC channel for talking about drugs or saying nigger or something while trying to get my ban appealed- I shit you not.)
>>
>>97652
If my spacers are there when I take the wheels off I'll try keep them and put them back on but I don't sweat it too hard if I end up losing them. I don't know why they are even there. I just get my wheels tight enough so there is the least amount of play on the axle without the nuts clamping down on them to the point it limits the spin.
>>
>>96989
Literally me.
I'm just getting back into skating and I was all pumped to see they still made the Accel. I was going to order a pair, a chocolate deck, some royal trucks, and a fourst... oh fuck. RIP.
>>97333
Ben is my spirit animal. I think we're basically the same age and that gets me pumped to go skate. He has teenage children though and I've never seen a vagina; kind of hurts..
>>
>>97652
>how do spacers even work
The way it works is that it makes a "bridge" between your bearings and prevents you from tightening the nut too much to accidentally damage your bearings and prevents friction from excessive horizontal movement from shit like powerslides.
I stopped using spacers when I found out it was fucking with my bearings on all my wheels without a plastic core.
>>
>>97658
I'm not sure how accurate the last sentence is. The wheels should only get enough tension to affect the ability of the spacer to do its job if excess pressure is put on them, for instance, when landing- at which point, the bearings do still move enough for the spacer to not be noticeable until the pressure is removed, and from there, the wheel continues to shpongle.
>>
>>97652
I don't use spacers because they never seem to be included with the bearings I buy. This guy actually did a video on bearing presses where he goes into spacers: https://youtu.be/pUTovfwL-7E
>>
>>97693
I'm not sure how accurate the first sentence is. Spacers usually come with cheap wheels, poser. That being said, I've got some ABEC 9s that I'll sell you. :)

I just want to see Sam Hyde on a skateboard. Its white Eric Andre, skating, but he actually seems like be belongs on a board. That might actually come off as rude for more than two reasons.

How can Silas be so good at skating yet a complete bore to watch? Lol, how did he win SOTY in 2012?
>>
>>97727
I thought the same thing when I watched it and I thought the same thing when he won it in 2012. I guess back then his style of skating was just more in vogue.
>>
>>97184
Hey boomer bro, is that a shaped board?
>>
>>97727
pretty sure its because he did the first rail to rail 5050 ollie. unless im confusing him with someone else
>>
>>97697
I'm surprised he hasn't already, he does hang out with Weck
>>
I'm scared to walk four miles to a skatepark. I don't trust that some pimp there isn't going to challenge me to a game of S.K.E.T.
>>
>>97784
From the brief skimming I did of Weck on Google and the reading I've done hear, it sounds like Weck backed off of skating a bit. Maybe someone who follows him should convince him to give Sam a board.
>>
>>97786
You'll be fine, just skate with headphones on and no one will approach you.
>>
>>97741
Yeah it's a pool shape. I think it's like 9.5 at the widest.
>>
>>97784
>>97787
you guys want a guy in his mid 30s to start skating because he occasionally hangs out with a guy who skates?
