So hey guys,

I want to longboard, i enjoy so much the idea of chilling out in a ride while listening to your favorite music. I don't care that much about tricks (I already do and have an bmx for this purpose).

However most of the longboards i can afford (i want something cost x benefit) support up to 70kg, and i have 75kg.

So i was thinking about going to skate, but here's my question: Does the skates have this weight problem too? Is it dumb to get in a department store and buy the first skate i see?

There's no skate store where i live, there are few places that sell "professional skates"
>>

I'm not from U.S or any english speaking country, sorry for my grammar. Here we refer to skateboards as "skates", as there's no need to translate "boards"

>>848664
That's the information they give on the offer, the longboard is pic related. I'm thinking about getting one, i don't believe it only supports 70kg.

Left one is the more expensive. Both, supposedly supports up to 70kg according to the store.

yeah they make better and better bowls for the Van Doren Invitational contests. A big-ass park was built in my city a handful of years ago and we still would change it for the VDI bowl any day - it has pretty much anything a tranny skater would like to have.

no, but by "one of these" what I mean is "that sort of position", not just throwing the board and hopefully landing on it. at first it was challenging but I've found out the more exaggerated/ Ronnie-Sandoval-tier you do it, the safer it feels.

I started putting some griptape close to where the wheel hits the wood and that helps a lot: with a firmer grab it's also much easier to glue your backfoot to the board I think. also my hands are usually greasy.

Same situation. What kind of places do you go? I can't be the grown-ass man skating and sucking ass in public. I'd be cringing so hard I wouldn't even improve.

I first started by going to secluded places like churches and behind big department stores at night for a couple weeks until I got the basics back and got comfortable on the board again. After that I said fuck it and skated wherever the hell I wanted and had fun. Who gives a shit if some random people you don't know see you? Just go have fun.

Thanks for the advice. I'm typically a recluse anyway so this kind of thing is equivalent to doing interpretive dance or something.

I wouldn't object to skating alone at a park once I get gud but until then it's abandoned lots for me.

continuing from:>>854768
Just showing another point, your "no comply flip indy" is just not enough to specify the trick... Because it's not a common "No-Comply" it's a "No-Comply Bump", furthermore it's not a "flip" it's a "heelflip".

Dude no

>Because it's not a common "No-Comply" it's a "No-Comply Bump"
Dude, don't talk shit when you don't have a clue. No complies originated as being popped off the curb. Thats the trick in its base form, don't try to change its name.

>furthermore it's not a "flip" it's a "heelflip".
Nope, its a no comply flip. There is no heel in there. The flip is from the slight angle it hits the curb at.

>I've actually got people calling me names cause I was trying to specify the trick.

Let's say I used to skate a lot but was never good at tricks. Just liked to do Ollie and ride around and do some ground tricks like that one skater who was sponsored by the panda company. He did like handstands on his board a lot.

Anyways I'm 22 now and I kind of feel awkward wanting to get back into it but I'm falling out of video games and already play an instrument. Is skateboarding a thing I can really come back to? And if so what would you recommend me having to buy to start back again without any equipment or shoes or anything.

Get down the basics (ollie, fs/bs 180, shuvit, pop shuv, kickflip, and heelflip), then get to slides/grinds (starting with 50-50 and boardslide, then wherever from there), and just have fun.

personally I think skateboards are a shit option for transportation. Even with a big wheeled cruiser you're still going to be doing a lot more work than if you were cycling. Not to mention the fact that you are severely limited in the terrain you can traverse. Get a skateboard for skating and anything else for transport.

Learn them backside. A good way to get used to the feel is by doing a manual then shifting your foot behind while on the tail so you do a little power slide. As for a slappy... It's just that but go from toe to heel so you get on the curb

wherever you go with your skateboard, move around on your switch stance.you don't get as tired if you have to skate to a spot or park, it also improves your skating overall, but mostly makes you feel comfier while going switch.

try to get used to jumping over obstacles and into banks, even if separately at first. when diving into a bank, make sure you raise your ollie like there was an obstacle but then level your board with the bank. both should force you to level your board and raise your back leg when ollieing.

I would also suggest you'd move around in a much more lively fashion, like a high speed cruise, when you skate, while also jumping over obstacles, even if small ones, every now and then. I've noticed most people try to do fliptricks while skating tiny boards with hard trucks at -2 mph with the heels of their back foot on their tails and surf-like front foot (tldr, not skating well at all). If you can skate at a certain speed and ollie over stuff fluently, and also do 180s with ease, tech-ier tricks will come easier later on.

please do allow me to use gillette as an example. not my favorite, but illustrative, I guess.

been skating chicago winters for almost a decade now. winter sucks, but skate or die motherfuckers.

yeah, you'll ruin your board with all that moisture. skating 2-3 hours a day, a deck would last me two months tops before i get really bad pressure cracks. the deck gets so soggy, the edges and the tail fall apart. i've had boards snap on me a couple of times and i got hurt.

i just ordered a new deck and some bearings, using a set of unused powell wheels that i had lying in a box somewhere. my rusty old grind king trucks should be alright, now all i have to do is grab some grip tape and i'll be golden. or something like that. my legs are gonna be wobbly as shit.

honestly i was planning to hang the Toy one up in my room for now because i love the design, but i'll probably end up skating it eventually. the habitat board feels a bit lighter, too. it's been years like i said, so i don't remember which board brands i've owned that lasted any longer than the others.

any recommendations for trucks? i'm leaning toward getting a new pair of grind kings if the ones i have are too broken down. i like the lightweight design.

Ollie comfortably while moving, enough that I can ollie up onto a pad or down a small drop

While not moving: Kickflip, front shuv, impossible (I gave it a few attempts for funsies and actually got surprisingly close.)

Basic bowl carving. Starting this goal this week.
