Anonymous No. 191412

I've seen someone hit their head just practicing slow moving flatground tricks once (then another time a kid tried to roll off a ledge). The only times I've hit my head it was from skating ramps in the early days and thankfully had my helmet on both times, though one of those times it was actually the helmet that caused me to bonk my head at all due to how much it stuck out. It's pretty unlikely you'll fall so badly that you'll hit your head just learning the basics, but you never know. You'll have all your worst falls early on.

I'd 100% recommend wrist and elbow guards though. The first thing you'll naturally do is stick your hands out dead in front of you to stop yourself, and those impacts can be enough to break bones at worst and give nasty sprains at best. Kneepads might come in handy too but I tend not to fall to me knees when I'm not skating big transition.

go ice your knee and change a car battery, you give off incredibly kooky vibes. if your idea of partying in your 20s is pissing your pants every night and doing pills and heroin you're a damn loser and thats coming from someone who has pissed the bed multiple times and done pills and heroin.

I'm 33 and just got back into skateboarding. I'm messing around with all the dimensions. Wheel base is huge for me. I need 14"+. My last board when I was like 15 was a 7.6 board and I got back into it with a 8", but the wheel base is less than 14" and I got a 7.75", but again less than 14". I got a 8.38 and its 14.5" wheelbase. The wheel base is probably the most important part for me because I can ollie like a motherfucker on the 14.5, but its so fat I can do flip tricks, but its really slow.
I'm sticking with the short wheel base 7.75 with low trucks, but I'm torn between riding higher trucks with a longer tail and nose and wheel base or just at least getting a 14" wheel base for a 7.75 board with my low trucks and a short tail. I like having super fast pop, but with that 14.5" wheel base I can get a super high ollie out of it. Its just that its fat and it rotates slow.

I am the depressed shit who asked for videos to get motivated.
I have gone skate boarding twice since last post.
Today I smashed and maybe sprained my knee to the floor.
I could limp within minute and I got back on board within five minutes but even after few hours it feels a bit unsteady.
Hopefully it is just pain and bruise.
More videos would be nice

I hurt my IT band last time I got hurt. Must've torn muscle below the knee. It was bad. Feels great now, but I'm on a small break. Hard to get motivated again because of work, I'm fucking some milf and I'm doing a project painting my car, plus today I'm drinking beer and playing video games. Idk how old you are, but I know that when I got hurt, I knew something went wrong, but it took hours til I actually couldn't walk anymore and I kept skating. Next time I get hurt (I'm 33) I'm just going to stop for the day.

Taking it slow by getting comfy on the board with pushing and pumping.

Can Ollie somewhat ok and trying to land shove its at the moment.

All I know for what I did wrong was I didn't lower myself to the obstacle. The new park built near me has like pretty low obstacles, lots of transition though. Hopefully you figured out your mistake. As for being depressed, I can't help because I try everything to cheer myself up. Its one of the reasons I got back into skating and nothing seems like it helps. Just have to keep going and know there are better days ahead. Skating might bring you down somedays and make you want to give up, but if its fun, if its some kind of way to express yourself, like the way I see it, its good to have and force yourself time to time.

The self filmed kickflip looked really cool, I liked the pop shuv sex change as well. No idea what the hand flip is called.
Several tricks I'm wanting to learn and improve on right now, crooked grinds probably top of the list. I can lock into them really well almost every single time, even pinch and hold them really well, but exiting the grind or popping out is still inconsistent.
Skating with no grip is a bit odd, but I feel like I can relate at least a bit because I've always really disliked MOB grip and how overly-coarse it is - I prefer something like classic Jessup or Pig grip.

I'm new to the general, may try to get a couple quick clips soon just to share something. Been a really long time since I've tried filming anything.

practice popping out of nose manuals going off curbs.
nogrip is pretty good unless you need pop or go anywhere that your board will get even slightly dusty or damp. i know it's kook shit but now that i've tried foam grip on skateboards i'm never going back to mob.

That's a good idea, ollie into nose manual is another trick I've been working on so two birds in one stone there.
Right now the only way I'm landing crooks is by riding them to the end of the ledge and just kind of dropping out of them.

No grip is to protect my shoes. Sick of spending 60 bucks a month on shoes, plus I hate when grip wears a hole into your shoe, it starts putting holes in my socks and eventually scraping skin off my foot. When I stopped using grip, I noticed that the rubber from my shoes creates enough friction for me to continue skating like normal. Even friends who've never skated like this can kickflip it first try when they try my board.

Tldr; I can wear nice shoes to skate, they don't wear down.

>Unless you need pop
No grip hasn't affected my Ollie's at all, it's all about how you snap that tail on the ground.

I honestly want to try it next time I set up a fresh board for shits and giggles. I know I like less abrasive grip like jessup and I've currently had my pair of shoes last 4 months now with shoe goo. I mostly wear down on the kickflip area. The other day I was curious to try my work boots and they work surprisingly well, but I wear them to work. I might actually start skating in them though when my boots start to look ugly. My boots are light.

I really enjoyed wearing specifically my work boots for skating for a while. The giant sole underneath makes for a great bake pad when planting and dragging your pushing foot to slow down. It doesn't wear down evenly though so eventually trying to walk on them will give you spine problems. It was nice having a large area for stability but at the cost of dexterity, mostly for going down hills.

Anonymous No. 192397

That is fucking perfect. Of the 3 boards I have, I have a 7.75 with 13.875 wheel base 6.38 tail and low trucks. I guess even just 14" is better, but I'm liking the challenge of mastering my ollies on the short wheel base. Next board I am thinking about getting is 7.75 with 14" wb and 6.25 tail. I feel like a short tail works well with low trucks. The other board is a 8.38 with 14.5 wheel base, but its so fat. I don't feel connected at all, but it makes ollies so comfortable, like my feet don't have to be as close together to get a 2 foot ollie. Ive seen there is a wheel base adjustment tool where itll attach to your bolts so you can drill with precision new holes.

Anonymous No. 192398

>It doesn't wear down evenly though so eventually
Thats my concern I guess. I just wear those boots so much that it kind of makes sense I'd want to skate in them. Worn the same brand and style for I think over the last 10 years, but they used to be 45$ the first time I bought them, now its double the price. I just save them in my amazon cart and buy them when I see them get below 80$. I wonder if shoe goo can rebuild that rubber too, because its been working with my skate shoes.

ah they are $72 right now in this color. So wide, so comfortable, so light, but I'm not ready to make the change. Pissed they used to be fucking 45$, but they last so long for warehouse shit. I had a pair last me 3 years til the sole separated.

I'm not butthurt about it, but a bit funny - I live in the middle of nowhere so I order most of my gear.
Bought a Toy Machine deck that their own site said was 31.75" length, and 14.25" wheelbase. CCS and Skatewarehouse both list the same specs for the deck.
It was a good board, really enjoyed the shape, decided I wanted to try a 14" wheelbase and slightly shorter board as my next deck.
Noticed when I set up the new board that it looked VERY similar to the one I just swapped, so I got a tape measure and actually measured - The old one I had been riding was actually 31.5" length and 14" wheelbase, so identical to the new one I just bought.
So either I got a miss-press, or all 3 sites have the specs off. I'm going through a bit of "madness" right now, so trying to find a shape to stick with.

Thanks for reading my blog.

ive skated this park a few times, Its very fucking weird, the bowl sucks. the c - curb is too low to the ground, that bank is huge and steep, theres that verrt wall thing for no reason, the mini has square coping. last time I was there there were 2 or 3 boomers blasting a tony hawk ass playlist and they each had a couple complete set ups there were swapping back and forth, fully padded, could hardly skate around.

For that price I'd just wait for a sale from a normal brand, iirc slap had a thread where they watch for sales on every skate site, only time I ever use that shitfest of a forum. Point of a cruiser is for it to be easy riding, why risk that on random chink hardware that's hard to find shit on. That or just wait another week on it and get shit you trust, that way half your time on your board isn't wasted on thinking if their acting wacky. Or hell, experiment with em, just find em cheaper than 20, that's the price of some real wheels.

Yeah I'm kind of the same way - I feel kind of bad the first few sessions tearing away at them, but it's like they go through that initial tear period and once they look properly "skated in" they have their own appeal again.

The no-grip thing seems to be getting a little bit more popular(?)
Not exactly the same thing but I've noticed it's VERY trendy right now at my local park for kids to put their griptape on with a whole side or half the nose/tail left bare. To me it looks like a horribly botched grip job, but they're all doing it on purpose.

If Daewon can have a highly successful skate career never using top bushings, I'm sure someone could get used to skating no grip.

im mostly joking, but it's all in how you do the stretch, sitting down grabbing ankles isnt as effective but far less kooky

also if you over roll your ankle intentionally, progressively (without actually rolling your ankle)
it makes it much harder to roll your ankle

Anonymous No. 193738

Yeh obviously I don't bust out the yoga moves in public.

One of my ankles I fucked badly, I don't really agree about rolling it intentionally, I do a lot to make it stable because it rolls so easily now. Once you fuck the ligaments and they become loose it is hard to undo. Meanwhile my other ankle is solid.

Anonymous No. 193741

yeah i dont mean...actually roll it, i mean progressively extended that range of motion your ankle is willing to accept without pain and gradually that range becomes bigger and thus more durable (untested bullshit)

i will say just because your foot can do certain positions while warm, you can reach that same location cold but you will injure things

It's probably the pivot cups (or slightly less likely the bushings).
If it bothers you, you can take the hanger off the truck and put a little wax in the pivot cup, then reassemble - It'll quiet things up. You can also use something like a silicone lubricant, or white lithium grease for automotives if you have something like that laying around.

Although I will say I mentioned lithium grease, a silicone based lubricant would actually probably be better. Either way, all you're looking to do is lubricate the cups.
Normally once they start sqeaking and creaking they'll keep doing it. Almost every pair of trucks I've ridden has done that though, either right away or after riding for a few sessions.

That has never bothered me. Usually a new pair of indys will squeak on the first session, but after that it stops. I do so many nose slide variations that eventually my baseplate pinches the pivot cup and squeaks with every turn. My current trucks are so worn that I've chipped off some baseplate. Pic related.

foam grip is good if you like your boards being less grippy while also keeping a consistent level of grip through the whole life of your board. it costs way more than a sheet of mob though so i wouldn't really consider it a cost saving measure especially if you go through boards pretty quickly. also like if you foot drag or run out on tranny you are still gonna wear through your shoes. tbqh i consider the fact that your shoes don't get blown out to be kind of a bad thing because they're still packing out and becoming less supportive even if the toecap isn't getting shredded but you don't have the same visual indicators of where your shoes are in their lifespan and i'm pretty sure riding dead shoes on dead boards for so long is 90 percent of the reason why i got tendonitis.
