Hi friends, it's Blood Wizard Deck Man back for another update
Little backstory, I still live with my parents and little brother while going to a local college. Anyways, my little brother got a skateboard (and protective gear because he's still young) for Christmas so that he could skate with me. Needless to say, it's been really fucking fun (my little brother and I are really close so it's not like I'm against him going out with me)
Recently, I brought us to the local skate park and we chilled out for a while. It's really run down and shitty and was never finished due to a lot of protest when it came up, so it's literally almost entirely an empty lot; perfect for learning to cruise in, which we did for about an hour.
Anyways, tonight we both rode down that huge fucking hill on the road perpendicular to mine that I mentioned in my last post. Then we rode down it again. We continued for like a fucking hour and it was so much fun. The road also runs into a rougher one, and I managed to stay on my board for every transition and even kick a little bit to pick up speed lost from the shitty asphalt
Anyways, I said in my last post I was hoping to be able to do that fucking hill and ride rough terrain by early January, and here I am. I probably won't be out skating much this week because I work all fucking weekend and next semester starts on Monday, but I'm thinking of bringing my board with me to class and going skating while waiting between them (I have five classes and they're all like an hour apart so it's better to just stay out instead of going home)
So yeah, overall the journey is coming along pretty well. Will either try ollieing soon, or I might do some weird shitty powerslide that my father showed me he used to do when he skated. Keep on keeping on boys

I wish man. The closest thing I ever got to a "decent" used board was a Jamie Thomas Board from the early Zero days. To this day I still regret not keeping it to use it as decoration.

>>3658362
Godspeed Brother. I always carry my skateboard around the campus just to move around with ease, already got a couple of call outs from a few security guards because my mates and I tend to grind the benches or skate around the empty parking lots.

Fucking kooks.

what is that?? why is everyone keep talking about it? Is it a free game?
>>
>>3662296
The new skate sim game, there's a free demo and you can easily mod it to include more levels and customize your decks/shoes/pants/shirts. It's a kickstarter, but it's real good for what it is right now. Hopefully with more backing they'll fix it up and make it into a real game. Check some youtube videos, it's well worth it.

Am hyped but am also pretty nervous boys. I have skated for like 2 weeks total in my life before my walmart-tier old soaked excuse of a board broken in half
>>
>>3675806
Also, what would be the skills progression I should aim for? In other words, what the hell should I feel comfortable with before moving on to more advanced stuff? Should I be able to do some power slides or shit before trying to ollie and so on?
>>
>>3675834
however you feel comfortable. What tricks do you like a.k.a what tricks do impress you and seem worthy of learning?
>>
>>3675869
Allright, I'll just have fun I guess. I find stuff involving manuals (that's what the balancing on two wheels is called, right?) and changing levels in motion (going up/down a series of obstacles/structures in a sequence) most impressive and cool. Also stuff done at high speeds.

>>3675902
allright, start rolling and you'll figure it out from there.

One trick I set out to learn but never did is the airwalk, kek. I conformed into the street style.

Try to find archives of (old) skatemagazines. Thrasher's whole 80s era is up online, Skateboarder is up too. You'll find tricktips, interesting interviews and witness the unfolding of skateboarding's history.

There are no levels to it, discover spots, invent tricks and have the time of your fucking life.
>>
>>3675915
Will do, thanks. I was just wondering if there are some old resources online. I can't wait for the weather to get it's shit together finally.
>>
>>3675928
I wouldnt try to progress too fast. Stay away from Braille vidoes. The #1 way to learn is peer pressure so if you have friends to skate with hang out with them as much as possible(but be kinda careful I was too much of a skateboard fanatic and scared everyone off). Ride around a lot, even on shitty ground. Eventually you will build up muscles and you can roll for hours on the gnarliest gravel. Learn to scoop the board up onto curbs and eventually you can transform those into ollies. Thats basically it for a long time.

Tldr
Watch skate videos to get hyped, skate with friends, don't compare yourself to people who are mad good, skate every day.
>>
>>3676214
Unfortunately I'll be on my own but I'll keep all this in mind. I will try not to get ahead of myself and pace my progress. I see people skating around every now and then around but they all look pretty damn serious about it with their trasher hoodies and general feel of a "skater" crowd. But maybe I will get to know some people eventually.
>Stay away from Braille vidoes.
Aight. But that made me curious.

no me and this guy>>3669207 gathered here to show off our edgy deck graphics. sieg hitler's!!!!1482
>>
>>3676214
how do you do the scooping thing?

also why don't you like braille? other than the videos are dumb and stupid.
>>
>>3676843
Shift weightt back, put the front wheels on the curb, shift weight forward, put the back wheels on the curb. Its how I learned ollies. Trying to Ollie over parking blocks helps too. If you try to learn them just on flat with no real goal or obstacle you will never do them properly.
Braille encourages you to practice on trick over and over, but if you do that you will just get tired and angry. Its better to just do what you can, watch other people, and you will gradually start to understand it.
>>
>>3676890
oh ok got it, i thought you meant something different. my plan is to just skate. i'm finding it hard enough to skate around the block for now.
