>>869359
As much as everyone here shits on Aaron Kyro, his Braille skateboard tips on youtube are actually pretty decent.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XgjDhSnTtE

However, I was once in your position where I had just barely learnt how to ollie and was super keen to learn how to do all the gnarly tricks I could. It's a very common mistake that new skateboarders make. The greatest piece of advice I could give you would be to keep on riding and riding and riding. Just ollie all the time. Onto stuff. Off of stuff. Over stuff. As fast as you can. It's such a huge mistake trying too much too quickly. You will progress so much faster if you're comfortable on the board.
Honestly, just practice and master the ollie for the next 3 months before you start fucking around with flat ground tricks.

I like the physics and controls in 3 better, but 2 had better maps and was over all more fun. Just... The fucking running sucks
>>
>>871575
are you talking about the security guards? It mainly sucked during challenges but it was okay to deal with when cruising.
Skate 2's map easily beats Skate 3's by longshot for me. I hated that the Downtown section was way too spaced out, rails were usually super long like Jamie Thomas designed the damn things and pedestrians hung out at obstacle you're trying to skate if you took too long.

are bushings a good afterbuy or are they irrelevant, like bolts? Should I buy bushings?

>>871725
I guess if your trucks are still good but the bushings have blown out you can replace them. A lot of people like the bones medium bushings, I think they are supposed to break in really fast and last long. I knew someone who did not like the Thunder stock bushings so he replaced them. I guess it's all preference, but I don't think it will have a significant impact on your skating.

Skateboard isn't that complicated, you won't have any problems with building it.
Invest in trucks - you won't grind the shit out of them soon, so they will last you a long time.
Don't buy bearings more expensive than Bones Reds, they are enough.
When you choose parts, you know what you have. IMO its better to have good trucks and cheap blank deck than mediocre whole board.
>>
>>871548
I kind of agree with you, I also learnt them on bones and then got spitfire wheels, spitfires are awsome, but actuallly I'm riding cheap basic wheels, just because they are like 10$

'Silicone Spray', you can cop it at your local hardware store. Avoid something like 'WD-40', it leaves a thin film that attracts dirt. Whatever you buy, use it sparingly; a little bit goes a long way.

>Don't buy bearings more expensive than Bones Reds, they are enough.

Why you guys keep perpetuating this bullshit is beyond me. Bones Reds suck. They are cheap for a reason. They don't last very long. Their shields are so flimsy and warp easily. They tend to let dirt in and you end up cleaning them more often to get them rolling fast again, otherwise they sieze up and fall apart on you mid-session. There are tons of better bearings out there for around the same price. Hell, even their Super Reds are much better. You'll know the difference once you tried them. The materials and design are just better quality, especially the shields.

If your life is too easy and you need a near-constant source of disappointment and frustration then stick to Reds.
>>
>>873215
Instead of just complaining, reccomend something better to support your bitching.
>>
>>873215
Not that guy, but I usually use a set of reds for about two years and they perform well for pretty much their entire lifespan. I never use the shields and I also never bother to clean or lube them. They work just fine, bearings aren't a big deal. At all.

focus on landing upside down, if you're afraid of landing. then flick slightly more and the board should slap up against your back foot, catch it land and roll away. give yourself a pat on the back

Flick out, not down.

People hate longboards because they are easier to ride. Longboards are more practical for long distance. Only difference is size and wheel softness. Skateboard is more trick oriented. Longboard is for downhill speed.

I hate longboarders because the typical neckbeards who longboard have done what neckbeards do and tried to overcomplicate a piece of wood and 4 wheels. like those fuckin spider trucks or whatever they are called. Bombing hills on a skateboard is 10 times cooler because it's sketchy as fuck too.

I like Nike. They are able to support a significant amount of skaters, both popular and unknown. Nike also does nice things for skating, like buying the LA courthouse ledges. Nike supports Pete Spooner and Phillip Schwartz, my favorite skate film producers, I think that's rad. Their shoes are pretty solid as well, my favorite pair of skate shoes is probably these Janoskis I used to have, they fit me perfectly.

you guys should drop the high school mentality on longboard/skateboard rivalry shits annoying. yes there are faggots who longboard. there are faggots who skate regular boards too. I started out longboarding garages and downhill and I love skateboarding transition, I also have a lot of respect for street. they're both fun in there own way, longboards do things shortboards can't and vice versa. I have friends who skate both and I've met some really cool skaters in both scenes. it's not a dick measuring contest were all doing this shit for fun/ as a way of life. and I know there are a lot of casuals/kooks who just cruise on longboards but so what??If they aren't bothering you leave them alone, they either progress or stop eventually.
>>
>>878700
on one hand, you are right about following your passion. And it's true that several companies produce longboards too.
Personally, I like tricks. Which in the hybrid era of the early 80s, would make me a "poseur" or a "kook", since "tricks" was back then a illicit term. It was about flowing and maneuvering in the bowls.

But on the other hand, you can bomb hills with a skateboard. So I don't think the

part of your post is true.

Nike doesn't care for its skaters in the way other companies do, they see them as simply names to push product. If you need an example look at how Nike have treated every skater who has got a shoe after janoski. They don't let riders design unique shoes any more because that shoe made Stefan so much money instead of Nike. Look at Ishod and grant taylors pro shoes, all existing nike shoes so all the money goes to nike.
>>
>>878904
What are you on about, man? Stefan did not design his own shoe.

Financially, Nike riders most definitely get bigger paychecks than the pros on skater-owned brands. Paying royalties for pro model shoes is a mutual agreement, I'm sure that both Ishod and Grant negotiated with Nike before settling at a price that they were comfortable with. Janoski's current situation, with the whole deal about accepting a one-time lump sum instead of royalties, is mutually beneficial to both Nike and Stefan. Nike no longer has to worry about royalties for Janoskis (which, like you said, were astronomically high) and Stefan gets a huge chunk of change (that he thinks is an acceptable amount) to invest/do whatever with.

I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I'm not sure where else. I was at a train station the other day, and I had found one a ripstik. It was sort of laying there. I had left, and came back after an hour, and it was still there. I figured whoever lost it wasn't coming back for it, so I took it.

My question is, is it worth it to learn to ride one of these, or should I just pick up a regular skateboard? I've never skate before, which is why I'm asking. So far I've heard skaters say they suck, other skaters say they don't mind them. What's your opinion, /asp/?

Sure skateboarding is not influencing half of streetwear culture right now (i.e. Palace, Supreme) or getting exsposure via contests aired on television or gaining some recognition from Gucci who not only used a board in an ad but ripped one or the more well known songs from skateboarding's recent history.

Yep, five years from now will cease to exist.

>>879622

Generally, thinner boards are easier to get your tech on, while wider boards allow you to go faster and ride a wider variety of surfaces, that's the rule of thumb, but what suits you is totally up to you. Experiment and always remember to keep it fun.

i never got this desu. sure, it's easier to get them to move around, but it's also harder to control. shit flies everywhere with a little board
>>
>>880260
>>880260
it's the same mechanics as with a vehicle's gear sprockets: the smaller the radius, the faster the revolution.
Goes both for vertical/width of the board axis (flips) as well as for longitudinal (pop-shuv its).
>>
>>880283
yeah, i agree that it is easier to flip a small board, but a small board doesn't necessarily equate to easier flip tricks. a wider board gives significantly more control, along with a more forgiving area to land on. when it comes down tot he entire trick, i think that a wider deck is the better choice for easier flip tricks.
>>
>>879512
I rode one for a month a few years ago, though I had already been skating for a few years back then. So I'm not sure how well it is to try and learn to skate on one of those things.

I think it's best to get a real skateboard if you want to skate, and keep the ripstick as just a quirky gimmick to fuck around with.
I'll have to say though, that bombing a hill on a ripstick is fun as fuck, it's like surfing.
>>
>>878901
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmAdhC5Q26Y Nope. sorry can't do that with a skateboard. you can hit like 20-25 max before you bail hard, not hating just saying you can't in fact do that sir.
>>
>>878968
Don't get a penny board dude they're plastic and ride like shit.
>>
>>880359
that's dependant on the tricks: it's harder to casper, double flip and 360 flip on a wider board.
Thinner boards require greater precision but if you already know how to kickflip, you 'll find it requires a little more effort on a wider board than what you usually are riding.

Honestly just buy complete set if you're a beginner.

Else go to a skate shop in your city, pick a board with a cool picture you like that isn't too expensive for you. Ask the shopkeeper for some suitable trucks (they're all roughly the same price). Get Bones Red bearings, they're durable, fast and cheap as hell. 52mm is the go to wheel size, but ask the guy if you need.

Been a poorfag for a while now, unable to afford a pair of shoes. (wearing the same J's sandals for about 2 yrs). Settled for some shitty sketchers with some gel soles. Fuck it, a pair of shoes.

Took me 3 months. I've started skateboarding in June 2015 and landed my first kickflip in September. It's not consistent however, i land like 1 out of 10+ attempts and it depends on my shoes a lot.
I am very consistent with my front and back pop-shuvits however, strangely a lot of people don't know how to do front shuvs, which helps me in game of skate a little. I've also learned 360 pop shuvits somewhere in late october/november.
My goal for the next season is to get consistent with kickflips, 360 shoveits and learn front 3 shove.
I simply want to do lazerflips, it's one of the hardest tricks there is, and you don't see people doing them often.

Relatively new skater here. I've been trying to learn heelflips for about a month now (first flip trick I'm learning), and I can consistently flip the board and land my front foot on the front bolts. How do I land the other foot? Is it a commitment thing or a board/foot height thing?

it's a commitment thing. try to ollie with your feet in the heelflip position. then, try to flick, but only once you've leveled out the board. don't kick out right away

He's a Scientologist and an all around creepy dude with creepy friends, seems to be a little too close with young boys. I wonder how involved the Church is in ReVive. That said his videos have been pretty helpful desu.
