I quit skating and turned my attention to eating and getting neetbucks so I can retire in the Philippines, skateboarding isn't gonna take me anywhere or do anything for me

this thread fucking sucks and the first post set the tone to be all about losers who think skateboarding owes them anything and that they dont owe skateboarding for being a gift in itself

New deck should come in today, probably won't set it up until the weekend when I can get a good full session in.
>>
>>196935
What deck did u get
>>
>>196944
I'll post a pic when it's in.
Toy Machine Characters 2 deck, 8" wide 14" WB and I think like 31.6" length. Should have a pretty "full" shape I think, round or square. As has been mentioned in the last couple threads, it's been difficult the last several years to know what to expect with TM deck shapes because they kept changing wood shops.

I fear it is too late for me (Texas is already in swamp mode).
New board is in, it's not the shape I was hoping to find - More tapered & more concave than I was looking for.
Incoming small autism dump comparing the new board to the older deck I'm trying to replicate.

Here's the old deck. You can kind of see how square the nose and tail are, very "full" shape.

The new board is still on the mellow side of concave, but the older one was even more flat, the tail and nose were noticeably flat as well and didn't seem to have any sort of bowl to them.

Mentioned before but the reason I don't just buy the same exact deck again (though I may try now) is because every online shop including TM's own website either have the measurements wrong, or I got a misprint because the deck I like doesn't match up with how they describe it online.
Excuse my brainworms, done rambling. May end up trying an FA or Hockey deck later in the summer, not sure how I'd like the concave but I know they have that square shape I'm looking for.
>>
>>196966
Very gay and cringe graphic but I hope it skates good for you.
>>
>>196970
Got it specifically because I'm doing the shape hunt and based on the description on their site thought this was the most likely winner. I'm pretty "meh" on the graphic as well.
I'll still skate it and I'm sure it'll be fine, I'm just being a sperg.
>>
>>196969
Bro this is why you go to the skateshop cause you can see and stand on the decks before you buy

Dummy it's basically a free hobby and stress relief. You're ngmi without that outlet.

I went through the same autism a while back. Over time just skating it flattens it.

Haha wtf I'm closer to land nollie BS tailslide than I ever was to landing FS tailslide
Also fuck BS crooks, they took so long to get but feel like shit when you do have them on lock
Hope you're taking advantage of the great weather and bank holidays :)
>>
>>197032
What great weather? What bank holidays?
>>
>>197032
>Haha wtf I'm closer to land nollie BS tailslide than I ever was to landing FS tailslide
well nollie bs tails is a way easier trick than a fs tail, a fs tail is a very unforgiving trick. you have to be very precise in order to lock in while with nollie bs tail you are assisted heavily by the 180 motion that locks you perfectly into it
>>
>94 degrees outside
hahah oof
>>
>>197032
popping nollie into a tailslide you can just rotate straight into it. It removes the part where you have to pop and then rotate to avoid hitting your tail on the side on the way in. Its basically cheating, but nollie backside actually looks okay whereas nollie frontside is super ugly in my opinion.
>>

I'm sorry that you have to work on May 8th and on Holy Sunday and that you don't have perfect skating weather

>>197065
They feel smooth but no more than bs noseslides. I could have spent that time better. I guess they look cool though
>>
>landyachts
never seen or met anyone with one these. gotta be some faggot cali meme

>>197079
>Can people tell that I'm going for the easy tailslide?
can you not tell when someone nollies instead of ollies? if anyone ask just insist you didn't nollie into it, dont give in, argue till death, refuse to do it again, say your tired and need to go home to feed your parakeet. when you go back and they ask you again tell them you lost it and cant get it back, when they tell you to try it nollie you tell them nah thatd be gay.
>>
>>197079
>Can people tell that I'm going for the easy tailslide?
Maybe, but like I said I think nollie backside looks better than nollie frontside. Especially if you can hold them. They're also a really sick trick on hubbas. You are still getting into that stylish back tail position. Keep doing them if they feel good. I was doing nollie back tails before I learned regular back tails. Doing them that way helped me get used to the feeling of getting into that position
>>
>>197079
>Can people tell that I'm going for the easy tailslide?
yes, Nelly. but i LOVE when you do them baby
>>
>>196969
I'd say the same board is your best bet. Toy Machine isn't a company I'd put 100% faith in their dimensions, and every site just takes their info, or it's due to PS Stix measuring length funny idk what measurement you found off. Is the PS Stix etching on top?
>>
>>197100
Yeah my last 3 boards have been TM and I think they're all PS Stix.
The length was off, the wheelbase was off, and on their site the title lists the concave as "mellow", but the description underneath says "medium". It's definitely very mellow.
Even this new board is listed as 31.63" length but it comes in a little under 31.5".

I'll either try the same exact deck or just get an FA next time, but I know FA doesn't have mellow concave.

you also probably dont give that much of a fuck about skateboarding and/or are too new to really talk about it. slap is for skatenerds/core skaters, thats why you got retards in here shitting on it all the time

lol sure man. thats why you contribute such great discussion here right, cause slap turned gay and you cant ever stop thinking about it or trannies
>>

I'm not even the guy that made the first post about or called you a slaptranny, I'm just a knower because I've seen it with my own eyes faggot

Have fun in your faggot club
>>
>>197162
why are you so mad. if you dont want to have actual discussions about skateboarding you have this place or r/newskaters. I come here to shitpost and I go to slap to actually talk skating and see actual skaters opinions. every single thread someone unprompted posts
>slap is gay and for trannies
and its just like why? why bring it up if you hate it so much? its just pure rent free seething and coping and its not even true, theres a wide range of people on there, but you wouldnt know that, would you.
>>
>>197165
You are the one that is mad that people rightfully say slap is tranny's and fags, fag

Your the one defending a place that is worse than reddit, you are the one who is mad

>>197152
Slap is filled with faggots and snowflakes. They literally have a sticky dedicated as a safe space for queer skaters.

>>197156
Absolutely rope yourself. I've seen them bitch about and try to "cancel" so many pros because of some meanie homophobic remark or equal fucking gay shit.
>>197172
They are exactly the community we DO NOT WANT in skateboarding.
>>
what is slap?
>>
>>197176
skating has never been more fun as i feel more at home in my body day by day. haven't skated this much in years and i feel so floaty and present and free.

previously i had a feeling of latency and feeling outside of myself while skating and it affected my confidence from being in that disassociative state. now that my confidence has improved through transition, it's translating to my skating and it's been such a joy to experience.

who is "we"? you and the 50 other people who post in these generals? you think you represent the vast majority of skaters? your probably like 35 and live in some shit hole flyover state and your local probably has shitty metal ramps from the 90s

It's not rent free when you announce yourself. You're not renting anything. You're knocking on the door begging to be let it. Not sure why your unwashed ass is still in here anyways if you like slap that much.
>>
>>197192
it is rent free. you simply dont go to slap if you dont like it. you simply dont think about gay and trans people if you dont like them. but you do and you cant get it out of your head to the point you have to announce it. its really pathetic.

>Not sure why your unwashed ass is still in here anyways if you like slap that much.

some dude the other day asked to try my board while in gucci slides and asked me to teach him how to ollie and I asked him "in the slides bro?" and he was like "yeah is that a problem?" he wobbled and tried to push. then he let me try to skate in his slides and I did a pop shuv first try, he wanted to take a vid of me for the gram and I denied but I wish I did I would have loved to send it to my homies. I tried a slappy crook in em too but that shit was not happening.

when I was doing kratom I was doing 50 grams in 5 - 6 days, know people who have done way more, know people who were so down bad they stole the shit from headshops. the people who do the extracts are the most extreme tho. boogie headshop I used to work at had kratom seltzers and cold teas which had 75mg extract in em. a half a selzter would actually give me a slight nod for like 5 - 10 minutes at its peak. the burps were awful tho.

that shit made me so nauseous tho, way more nauseous than actual opiates ever made me. I puked multiple times almost every time. when you puke so hard that shit comes out your nose just uggghhhh awful awful

Gay niggas from outer slap
>>
>>197229
I take like 2-3 grams twice a day, nothing to heavy, mix it with my gabapentin, I was gonna get a benzo this month but I failed the drug test for THC, it was 28 days since I last smoked

I used to be off all the drugs now I consider this sober

Best drugs ever are 4-FA, clonazolam, and DCK

You were pukeing cause you did too much. I've only got sick like 3 times cause I dosed too high or re dosed too soon. If you go above like 4 grams with no tolerance your gonna get sick

You can get ATM boards anywhere from the $31 -> $65 dollar range, and they're made by BBS: https://sopdistribution.com/collections/decks

I used to skate ATM boards all the time, had the same one back to back because they've always been affordable but really good boards even back when they were made by Clutch (maybe Clutch had slightly higher standards back then). Now they're made by BBS which should be even better.
Their shape may have changed over the years but when I used to ride them they had medium concave and a nice round shape, pretty big nose and good sized tail (not stubby).

I am jealous. A new park was built near me. Dacades in the making, millions of dollars wasted again. Idk who the fuck the audience is, scooter kids I guess? The creators have build these monstrosities all over my city. They need to be stopped.
>>

jesus christ it looks like a young crews first DIY build where there was no actual planning involved. this cant be in america right? we have actual skate park companies owned and crewed by skaters here so I havent seen anything fucky like this in a minute. the only thing that comes close is the alexis sablone designed park in jersey and the 9th and poplar diy in philly thats being done by mostly bmxers.

wow so it is skater owned and operated, or at least it was at one point. theres some real questionable design choices going on there, a whole lot of what the fuck why. it looks like theyre more into making it some kind of like artsy modern aesthetic but are failing at even that. a comparable company in america would be evergreen skateparks.

Yeh I did some researching, mostly Aus but a couple parks in China/Dubai. Created in early 00s so they're from an era of different skate parks and clearly out of touch now. I actually saw a few parks I didn't know were theirs that are notoriously poorly designed.

>>
>>197486
he's ok. his most recent part was pretty silly. not his best work. thoughalbiet desu, he's getting old and had a bad knee injury. he even works the graveyard shift to support his family so realistically it was nice to just see him goofing around.
>>
>>197486
every decade or so a new guy will come along who does weirdo kook shit but does it in a unique way with a cool style. Gou Miyagi is one of those, so is Matt Tomasello. They usually come parallel to another guy who comes along to do kook shit but in an awful retarded way see Richie Jackson and Andy Anderson for examples.

The park it replaced was one of my favourite spots, old and shit but always was empty. So hopefully this won't be crowded but I think thats unlikely. Will drive by this weekend but not sure I'll skate it.

>>197582
my local park is alright obstacle wise, but it flows like a toilet bowl and its always packed as fuck. You have to wait your turn for everything and the flow is just everywhere. Theres another park that only ever got half finished, but I havnt tried to go on a weekday. First time I tried it was on a weekend with some soccer game and it was packed of kids on bikes and scooters.

I just have a grind rail and do flat ground and the rail tricks. Im off work tomorrow and its going to rain of course, but Im always looking for street spots anymore. I havnt yet found where I want to set up a slappy curb, but I found like a 15 stair rail which I might try to board slide one day. I kind of give up on the skate park because I dont really want to share unless it has a good flow. I miss the old indoor park i used to be able to go to that got taken down. it was wide with banks and quarter pipes on each side so the flow was straight forward and allowed for multiple skaters at the same time doing their own shit.

>>
>>197751
"niggerball" is crazy, you people are insane
>>
>>197763
What >>197767 said basically. Spend more time cruising and carving switch, more time popping over small gaps nollie, just get more familiar in that stance and eventually nollie will feel as easy as fakie.
>>
>>197781
>>197763
I also recommend trying to learn switch ollies popping off the tail because popping off the nose is easier for me. And pushing in switch position is key as fuck for that leg strength.
>>
Rolling over into year two of quitting skating. This shit seems more gay and pointless as time goes on. All you need is Ollie noseslide n your good. I don't know why I was so obsessed with skateboarding, I think it was just something to attach my personality to. Now I'm in my 30s, I don't care about being cool or "sick tricks" lol imagine.

when I was a kid I couldnt do any flip tricks and thought they were all flashy, but I picked up skateboarding again in my 30s because initially I wanted to join a fighting gym til I realized how expensive they are. Randomly I noticed my skateboard and learned a kickflip in 7 days and enjoyed the work out. Ironically though, I am super antisocial about skateboarding and initially with wanting to join a fighting gym I was hoping to find some friends.

i genuinely love skating because it's fun but i totally feel you on not giving a fuck about being cool anymore. my only desire for progression comes from simply wanting to have more fun when i skate, i really want to get better at transition skating cause it looks like a blast. but nothing is more gay and lame than being in your 30s and being SUPER tapped into skate industry bullshit and keeping up with "trends" i still watch vids for inspiration and to get stoked on skating but everything else is dumb

It's not even that the individual obstacles are bad (bar that ledge), just that the layout is insane. You have all of that transition and none of it lines up into a miniramp back-n-forth. I could see one person doing a sick line across everything in one run.
>>
>>197724
If you're not sure you'll stick it out; buy a complete. Just get the deck size right and work with what you have. I'm 6ft with size 11.5UK shoes, so an 8.5" suits me. Pad up too. Imo the most important for early days are wrist guards as the odds are you'll instinctively try to catch yourself when you slip out, but wear the full set because god knows how you'll react to bad falls.

Then you need to find a flat area and learn how to push, steer, stop and throw down (running start). Get decent at that, so much so that you won't panic if you suddenly have to stop your board and it becomes second nature to run out without hurting yourself. Learn to go fast.
Then go to your local park. Look at where the lines are first, don't steal anyone's turn, but don't be shy about taking your own too. Start riding up and down ramps, both flat banks and transition. Get used to riding fakie/backwards, shifting your weight and feet around, etc. Learn kickturns. Then how to drop in. Just have fun riding ramps in every sort of direction you can.

Do all that before thinking about tricks at all and you'll have a great time.

Doing something because you need to attach your personality to something "cool" is stupid. If skating doesn't feel like making music or drawing or progressing on your running you should indeed just quit. I'm sorry for you and for all the people who just give up on learning things and finding ways to express themselves because they are broken by adulthood. You sound like someone whose idea of a fulfilled life doesn't go further than owning a refrigerator and a TV. I turned 32 a few weeks ago and I'm taking more pleasure than ever in skateboarding. I genuinely enjoy using my mind and body to navigate spaces and give myself new challenges. I hope you find a good therapist or something in your life to keep having curiosity and motivation.

It is very hard for me to not drag on my on damn near everything. I'm also around 87kg give or take. Landing any sort of flatground is a nightmare, but going up a board size makes the shit too heavy. I mean I have a fucking 10.5" Heroin board and my feet STILL hand over the edge.

I've had two sessions so far this week, and learned one new trick during each - front tailslides and front lipslides.
Decently happy with that, need to work on consistency especially with the tailslides.
Also landed a frontside nosegrind for the first time but it was really sketchy and I was already able to nose manual that same box so I'm less excited about that one, still cool to start getting those down though.

I'm trying to find ways to increase my skate volume so I can keep the pace going.

Jessup is 4chan's griptape.
>>
>>198010
Jessup classic is one of, if not my favorite overall griptape.
Right now I'm on Jessup "Ultra", and it's actually too grippy for my tastes. It's like MOB but less coarse, but still very grippy.
Haven't tried their recycled grip but I'd imagine it to be similar if not mostly identical to their classic formula.

I had Pig griptape a little while back and had the opposite problem to the Jessup Ultra - The Pig grip felt too slick after the first few sessions. That may have been compounded by the fact that I was on fairly worn out shoes at the same time though.
Going to try Pig again, I may also try Alveer at some point. Otherwise will stick to Jessup classic because I know that works well for me.

>>198050
how does it cut? i fucked up my last sheet of mob and had to scrap it, deff a skill issue but jessup has always been easier to grip

When I was a kid/teen we used to constantly have jessup vs mob arguments and battles. It was almost gang culture.

I used to ride Black Magic all the time, I honestly forgot about them - Very good and I'd say lands somewhere between classic Jessup and MOB.
I kind of avoid Shortys (Black Magic) these days for entirely superficial reasons.

jessup doesn't have the same lifespan as mob ime. which for me is fine because i don't like that feeling of having your feet glued to the board that you get from fresh grip

Yeah Mob is the least stretchy and easiest to get a crease.

I obsess over every part but I really don't care about grip, I don't think about it after it's on. The only stuff I really didn't like was the 100 ft. colored Jessup roll off Amazon, it's weird and not like regular grip. My favorite was Grizzly but I couldn't promise I could tell the difference and I'm not paying extra for it.

It's ok anon once you get the hang of it you'll never forget how to do them!
It's kind of hard to explain through text
Imagine you're doing a powerslide at the last split second before you go onto the curb.
You don't really need to jam up there with much force. Go at the curb at an arc and almost delicately shift your weight to get on.

In the beginning it helps to wind up your shoulder and then "unwind" so you can get used to getting your weight on the curb with your momentum.

I ate absolute shit few days ago and sprained my ankle really bad. I'm walking on crutches, what are some fun tricks to do on crutches. I can't pop my board, I'm not allowed to put any weight on my ankle :(

>>
>>198191
Holy shit I fucking hate that dusty look. Gimme black grip tape pls.

I don't know how to prove it to you, but the Zero story 100% happened. He somehow thought I didn't even know what Toy Story was.
>>197935
He did, but this little shit wouldn't even know that. Zero aren't really a well known brand in the UK but distribution here is shit.

>>197889
It's the landing where my toes drag. It's a bad habit in general, but it's easier to catch a trick with the middle of your foot and sometimes you heel depending.

Still just as many skids, and all the oldheads came back with kids to try and milk the olympic gravy train.

The difference between old metal ramp parks and "olympic grade concrete facilities" is night and day so I can't complain, and it's nice that women can take skating seriously now without "too much" shit flinging, but I haven't seen any local jams/contests this year so far for people over 18.
With post-pandemic corrections in demand and cost of living rises, I'm guessing the industry can't compete with the sport body, a literal arm of the government made up of washed up oldheads.

Seems to have fucked over a lot of people that should have been noticed by now, and I've seen a lot of decently progressed people just mentally drop out and I don't really blame them (although people quit all the time and there's probably more than one reason why they quit)

In a way, it's nice that there are fewer kooks my age these days but they snaked wayyy less than some of these "prodigies", good lord.

i dont think skateboarding is worth taking serious. everyone should just have fun. pros get paid fuck all to kill them self just for GH to review their part and call it whack lmao if i were to invest in making a hobby into a career i would do mountain biking or snowboarding. anything other than skating kek

new grip, cut up two sheets into 1.5in squares and only used half of them. it looks as dumb as it is loud but i like it
>>
>>198248
So you're telling me you got one yellow and one red sheet of grip, cut them into 100 little squares and put them on 1 by 1 to make a McDonald's racing skateboard?

Fuck, I want a burger now.

Also I've seen dumber grip jobs. It's weird to me how it's trendy again to basically just grip half your board and leave random sections bare.
>>
>>198248
i think it looks cool man idk why everyone is hating. having cool grip jobs gets all the skater girls approaching you
>>
>>198259
I don't do many flip tricks or grinds, but I have a really distinct hesh style. Lots of people notice me at the skatepark.

any gf havers itt?
usually when i take a girl to a skatepark it’s so we can skate together or because she wants to try it, but someone asked me to take her to a park just so she could watch me try some tricks, I was kinda worried she might get bored so I didn’t stay for long, luckily it was almost empty so she wasn’t in anybody’s way sitting on one of the ledges
>>
>>198302
No way I'd take mine to the skatepark. I go surfing and leave her on the beach which isn't too bad because she can't talk to me.
>>
>>197886
Here's a true story:
>wearing Helas hoodie
>get asked multiple times if I liked the show The Umbrella Academy
>get infrequent intrusive thoughts that plebs everywhere are clocking my hoodie as netflix slop merch.
It doesn't stop me wearing it, but it is annoying.
>>
>>198302
In my experience non-skater gfs are better to take to the park, you warn them in advance that they'll get bored and they bring a book and a beer and leave you alone and afterwards they'll say "sure I saw you do that trick thingy of course it looked cool you sure are sweaty haha". A skater gf will constantly ask for advice, get frustrated, get impatient after the first half hour, then resent you for having more fun.

that show was originally made by the lead singer of MCR so it's not actually that bad.

Normies have probably forgotten about it by now anyway.

Meh, faggot child diddler. Good music though.

Nah fuck the gays and their woke marxist cancel culture racist bullshit. Get the fuck out of skateboarding you fucking cry-bullies. Everyone hates you and your authoritarian shit. FOAD

Pretty good, he fits well with the classic Zero style. That opening scene was awesome.
I wonder if we're ever going to see another full part from Chris Cole or Jamie Thomas... about a year ago they were on the Nine Club and both of them said they were working on new parts. For Jamie it'd be his last full length, and for Chris Cole it'd be his first full length part in 11+ years since Cold War. I'm honestly really disappointed Cole's lack of footage for such a long time, and that he never put out anything under Plan-B, kind of feels like he quite literally did just treat them as "Plan-B" and never provided for them while they gave him a vacation home away from Zero for several years.

For as much as that guy loves skating I just expected to see more, but he's now spent half his career pretty silent.
>>
>>198353
>he's now spent half his career pretty silent
So talented too. Tre at Wallenburg was insane at the time.
>>
>>198355
It's not like he ever stopped skating either, just filming and apparently street skating. He still did a lot of one-off short videos for Berrics over the years, and he's still been on trips doing demos for his sponsors.
Dunno I guess it's better than him just going AWOL but Cole was an absolute legend/God when I was getting into skating, and it's weird how he seemed to just allow himself to fade out while he was still within his prime years.

damn that was really sick, love how fasts he hits everything. pros dont hit rails like this anymore
>>
>>198353
cause its all about the instagramz clips now, not full parts. chris cole is pretty active on ig with like 3k+ posts so i wouldnt say he stayed silent
>>
>>198367
Yeah that's fucking gay though.
It's just a bit funny because if you'd told me 10 years ago where Decenzo would be, and where Cole would be, I'd think you must have the roles swapped.
>>
>>198343
well, now that's a good skate video
>>
>>198353
cole pretty much went on plan b to be a contest skater so he gave them exactly what they wanted. idk if you will see another serious part from him, he seems more interested in running his wood shop and being a dad. jaimie on the other hand... i don't think he has it in him to give it up
>>
>>198368
decenzo really must be the textbook example of how much wack sponsors hold someone back.
>>
>>198367
>cause its all about the instagramz clips now
I'm a boomer (33), so I never transitioned to Instagram or tiktokx and feel like I'm missing out on a lot of skateboarding media. I only watch thrasher's youtube and whatever youtube throws into my algorithm.
>>
>>198373
Eh, yes and no. For the most part anything worth watching on Instagram will get reposted on Youtube, typically on Thrasher either in Gary's news segment or some other video part.
If you're not already subscribed I would recommend checking out FreeSkateMag and Pocket Skate Mag on Youtube, both kind of similar to Thrashwer where they just put out parts periodically.
>>
>>198373
>>198375 anon is right, also quater snacks top ten will post anything worth seeing every week. youre not missing much on ig, just gimmicky bullshit, ads and influencers. sometimes the algo will show me a sick clip from a random that went viral but it's rare
>>
>>198380
>quater snacks
I actually do catch this every week on youtube.
>>
>>198373
>watch thrasher's youtube
Thrasher is approaching Braille tier. Actually Braille is maybe more legit since they are not just a channel for corporations to buy credibility.

Shut up Aaron I'm still not watching your channel.

(Autism Update)
I ordered the same deck, again straight off the TM website. Even the sticker on the board said 14.25" wheelbase, but once again it was 14". It's the same square/full shape that I was looking for though.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE - This board is actually accurate to the description's 31.75" length, unlike the last one which was 31.5". I measured the nose and tail and the nose on this board and the nose is .25" longer.

I think I'm done rambling now, I really like this shape but I do wish TM would sort out their specs and descriptions. Tactics has even more strange measurements for the board.
>>
>>198789
Im still debating my next board. I havnt been skating because its fucking hot out, but pretty sure im going from 7.75 to 8.06. I also ride 54mm spitfire conicals and thinking of switching to classic shape when i need new wheels.
>>
>>198817
I was between these 2 boards and went for the oval one for the shorter tail.

https://www.warehouseskateboards.com/real-skateboards-doves-redux-skateboard-deck-8.06x31.8
>>
>>198888
If I noticed this was a twin tail, Id probably have gotten this, but too late now. Im hoping the board I got is what I want and itll just stay in production. The smallest changes and it changes my timing entirely.
