You're not doing it correctly. To do a flip trick you have to pop, jump and do a karate kick while in the air.
What you are doing is you step off your board (while popping the tail) and kicking your board foward.

Also after you'll get the concept be prepared for your board to shoot out from under your feet, with you falling on your ass or landing primo with a sudden fall in random direction that usually follows afterwards.

you 're allright. Have some patience and get off your driveway, skate different places.

what ever happened to grind king truck co? i was looking for them online and they seem to have just vanished after 2010. i assume they went out of business, but i really liked the way their trucks were light and had basically no kingpin hangup for grinds.

What's the most comparable model/manufacturer these days?

Why when I'm skating nice surface in my garage I feel like i can roll for 3 days, but when I go out and try to skate on street I get shaky and my board slows down so fast I have to push every like 3 seconds?

Good ollie, but stop rushing things.
Since you got a good pop on your ollie, try some 180's.
Also, you're really close on getting those shuv-its on lock.

>>
>>882766
Honestly the best way to learn is just to watch youtube videos, when it comes to tricks theres nothing better than a slow mo video.

You should start by just getting comfortable riding it if you aren't already. Ride to the shops or whatever and get used to moving over different surfaces. Once you're comfortable attempt an Ollie on grass and then move to concrete once you've got it

So I got a new board yesterday. Getting back into skateboarding after almost 7 years I think. Hardly remember anything.

But I'll get to the point; I have a few questions.

What's a good way to develop comfort riding at higher speeds? I tend to bail going down hills that aren't very steep, but allow me to pick up enough speed for the board to feel hard to control.

I want to get comfortable pushing with either foot and riding the board without feeling like I'm doing so "backwards," if that makes any sense. What would you suggest I do to practice? Trying to just do it makes me feel like I have no control over the board whatsoever, and I can't even mount that way usually.

I think that's all I have for now.

>>882766
I used to have this on vhs, it's got some good tips for tricks to start off with.

>>883115
Hell yeah, I'm about in the same boat with the whole return-from-hiatus thing. I haven't bombed any hills recently, but I used to have trouble with truck wobble at high speeds. Maybe try tightening your kingpins and/or getting less squishy bushings. Otherwise, it's all about keeping your ankles tight and not overcorrecting when you feel that wobble starting to show up.
>>
>>883115
>What's a good way to develop comfort riding at higher speeds?
I think you already know the answer to this one. Just do it over and over again, slowly building up speed. If thats not working fiddle with the tightness of your trucks a little and see if it helps at all.

Death wobbles are usually caused by two things; trucks too tight or trucks too loose. Both lead to overcompensating and getting into a feedback loop eventually toppling you.
>>
>>883118
Thanks man.

>>883128
Indeed, I worded it a bit poorly. I rode down a number of hills yesterday and reduced most of my anxiety with going so fast on the board. The one thing that remains is that whole wobbling thing.

I crouch and try to "command" the board when picking up speed, but that only works to an extent, before the wobbling itself amplifies to the point that I lose control and have to bail. I'll tinker with the trucks next time and see if that does any good.

I've been where you are at, my suggestion is give yourself like one push instead of standing still. You don't have to go full speed or anything just one little push so you have a little bit of movement. It is a bit scary at first but you will be amazed at how much it can help.

Figured that to be the culprit after going back into practice. It wasn't just my balance with landing, it was my balance overall.

I've been riding with my trucks loose for turns, but I pretty much ignored the fact that I was sacrificing a ton of control. I could ride comfortably while moving, yet the difference in my balance was evident while stationary/squatting for an ollie.

Even I'd do it if I were you. You behave differently in front of people than under your very own supervision. What they might see as shittiness you might see as your road to improvement, and vice versa if they've seen good skateboarders come up from shittiness. I dunno. I'm sorta rambling at this point. Just go and have fun practicing, and feel free to ask questions. At least, that's what I'd do.

Sounds like maybe your hip flexor is acting up but I can't be sure.

When it is inflamed put ice on it

Give it a week or two rest to heal.
If it is still acting up then you really need to see a doctor if you want to heal it properly because odds are you will need rehab style training of the muscle and to know exactly what is going wrong.

>>891499
That would fuck up your board.
But if its already a very old skateboard, go ahead.
>>
It's common knowledge not to trust cheap walmart boards as your official board, but it's also common knowledge not to get your official bearings wet. So I propose to you this, what if it's a wet season and you buy a walmart board as a disposable replacement?

I mean if it's jacked anyway or going to be jacked, jacking it anyway gets stuff done?
>>
>>891195

I don't know why that dude says it but he's right. he kicked the OG team off, told everyone they left,and generally doesn't treat the riders right.
Plus the boards were cool a year and a half ago but it's sort of kooked now
>>

nigga you can't even push on them, it doesn't get stuff done. decks are like 10 ply too

You're right with the scoop thing, sometimes I guess my treflips just go with the pop-scoop.
About the 360 pop-shuvits, I put the backfoot in the middle of the tail and when a I pop the board I let it inclined to the shuvit angle so the board go towards that way,(and logically I put the enough strength for a 360 shuvit) then catching it's the harder for me because it's really fast you need to get a good synchronized catch.

glad his talent is not left unnoticed. Any company should just let him do his thang. He's the best skateboarder of our generation.
I mean I get Welcome, and maybe there is actually equal responsibility to those guys parting ways, but nobody can deny that everything clicked and it was dialectical: the riders found a home and the company built a name and a character.

They're surprisingly heavy and amazingly weak, the kick is usually weirdly shaped as well

The guys are really replying to him!
I hope Jenkem makes a follow up interview. They have done it in the past for One In A Million, they interviewed both sides.

Do you think Jason is just a stressed out dude, like the guy claiming to be Nolan Johnson says he is?
Or is he a guy who does what needed to be done to take down the current establishment of companies, like a modern day Rocco, making his riders spread out like the Wu-Tang style?

>>891765
Are they good for street stuff? Like slappies boardslides, no complies, etc
>>
>>891836
They're usually pretty heavy and can be difficult to maneuver in the air so you need to put a lot more effort into your movements, easy once you're used to it though. Things like boardslides are easy as fuck especially if you put the plastic rails on the deck
>>
>>891668
Guys, don't be hypocrites. Last time I checked half of you just started skating and clinging to Welcome shapes. The way you look up to Erik and Tired is the way the kids look up to Aaron Herrington and JKJHSN. Let the kids do their thing.

And if anyone is a modem day Rocco, it's Nike. 3D, 917, Doomsayers, Skate Mental were all born from Nike money. Surprised no one else thought of that before.

Why do people wear shoes that arent Vans

vans are so aesthetic and comfortable and historic to skating

>DC
for vert jocks/they give me edgy 2005 high schooler who drinks monster energy daily, uses newgrounds and tried to varial flip his schools stairset
>Osiris
literally same 2005 vibes fuck osirirs fuck outta here with your puff
>Huf
I cant talk shit about Huf shoes they legit. Only complaint is how fast those Bronze collabs sold out
>Cons
90% of their shoes ugly as fuck. Just stick with skatable Chucks and less bullshit
>emerica
Havent seen anyone wear this shit
>>
>>892152
vans all look the same just like every other skate shoe looks the same these days. boring-ass white gum bottoms with a mostly solid upper instead of the more technical look that i used to love from the old mullen or reynolds shoes from like a decade ago.

There are exceptions in some DVS or DC or Globe, but they seem so rare among the waves of identical-looking shoes. Please prove me wrong.
>>
>>892152
/fa/ pls
>>
>>892152
Where's you complaints for Lakai, DVS, Etnies, Nike, Vox, and adidas? I just want to see your opinion across the board. Judge them all.
>>
>>892157
You seen the Kalis Lites? I think you'll like those if you're in favor of tech puffy shoes.

>>892157
Also Lakai is reviving the Staple in a slimmer silhouette with a rubber toe cap.
>>892160
As it was stated before, not everyone in /esg/ is the same.
>>
>>892221
Lakai: cool i guess ive seen em around. No opinion
Etnies: 2003 skate park whore shoes
Nike: Needs to fuck off of skateboarding forever. All their SB shoes are whack as fuck, and I fucking hate that stupid Nike logo. Fuck nike with a burning hatred
>adidas
I should hate adidas for being a corporation but I like their collab with Palace and Welcome. Friend had a pair of them which looked fresh
>>
>>892152
Converse is owned by Nike, no thanks. Also Chucks are ugly.
>>
>>892152
I love DC's. I also like Vans but I think they get holes fast. In my opinion my DC's have lasted me the longest out of almost any other skate shoe except for maybe a pair of eS shoes I had.
>>
>>892283
The super suede is nice, I want to try the new Evan Smith's.

>>892264
I think Adidas is the lesser evil of the two. Them giving more creative freedom towards their athletes and artists.

get your front foot forward, towards the nose. Put it in a way in which you can quickly remove it, as if you were standing on an edge with your toes ( so, heel hanging off, or half of your sole hanging off).
Keep your backfoot on the tail.
Adjust body -posture, speed, pop, anything else that helps you- and keep in mind what it is that you want to do. Commit to landing.

>>892883
does that mean 100a/52 tho?

The wheels don't look like they are "cruising" big. Although you should learn to cruise on smaller wheels. About their hardness, I can't tell from the photo. You need someone with a more experienced eye.

Hey /asp/ my ollies are very inconsistent. Whenever I try to ollie (which would only succeed in doing so once every 30 minutes) it's either I:

>Ollie and do a FS 90
>Do a crooked ollie and completely stop rolling
>Pop up and see my front foot fly into nowhere from missing the slide part of the ollie
>Don't pop and instead do a fucking autistic Bruce Lee kick mid air

I think its partially due to the fact that I am skating on uneven tiles and/or I think too much about my ollies. I just don't understand how people do ollies whenever they can and still maintain the same speed. I've been skating for three months now and I highly regret learning ollies stationary.
>>
>>893378
>Ollie and do a FS 90
Common problem, keep your shoulders squared up with the board.
>>
>>893378
Been having the same problems trying to ollie, especially with the board turning nearly 100% of the time when I try, nowadays.
>>
>>893378

Just chill out about it and stop overthinking. Stay off youtube ollie skate supports if you've been watching them, they don't help with the mental stuff.

you'll get it soon.
>>
>>893378
>>893466
yeah dubs tell the truth. it's mostly mental. I guarantee you have the mental physique and muscle memory to pop solid ollies, except that you're scared. Just try to do one without caring that you'll fall. At some point you should get a very high confidence or something that you'll notice later after you do it.
>>
>>891195
It's because Jason is an egomaniac and a rip off artist, that's why half the team left. Jenkem did an interview with Jason, the whole time he was just giving them bullshit answers. I also like how the article received negative feedback from people who were formerly associated with Welcome.

http://www.jenkemmag.com/home/2016/01/18/an-inside-look-at-welcome-skateboards/
I'm honestly stoked Ryan Lay and Jordan Sanchez turned pro and I just hope they both jump the ship as soon the company completely fails.
>>
this is a really stupid question so I dunno

I've always been a SUPPORT LOCAL dude myself, but today I was shopping at the Vans outlet at the mall to get some fresh ass Sk8 His and they have like a mini shop thing which I tend to ignore as I find it Zumiez-y but today I noticed they had a nice Krooked Misfits deck that supposedly is exclusive. My shop is in the ghetto and only carries like DGK, 5boro, Zoo York, you know what I mean. The other shop like 30 minutes has a nice selection with Krooked and Welcome but its like 1/4 Skate 1/4 Snowboard 1/2 Lacrosse shit (gayyyyyyyy) so like mannnn im split do i keep supporting local? or is there really no shame in supporting the mall Vans outlet
>>
>>893570
First ask your shop to start stocking the brands you want, if your friends want those brands as well, tell them to ask the shop too. If your local shop isn't ran by idiots and understands supply and demand then they will stock what you want.
If that doesn't happen, buy from CCS.
>>
>>893570
Buy wherever you want, senpai. At the end of the day, it's not a huge deal. I personally cop a lot of skate stuff (primarily decks, but also some sale items) from skatewarehouse because neither of my local shops stocks Hook-Ups.
>>
>>893604
CCS isn't cheap anymore, Skatewarehouse has the better deals nowadays.
>>
>tfw you want to cop Bronze gear like shirts/hoodies/the hardware/the jazz cup deck
>literally 0 place to find them online, none at skateshop
>>
>>893691
Yeah, you're shit out of luck on that, everything Bronze makes is limited and they supply like two shops.
>>
>>893623
Of course, they bounced back from near death a year ago but if anon wants to support skater owned (I'm neutral on the subject), he should buy from CCS
>>
>>893623
oddly enough, the trucks i just ordered were cheapest on ccs. i used to prefer active shop back in the day, but they were super spensive for a lot of things now.

i'm not a huge fan of the paint job, but the model looked good and the pink should go with the red wheels and board I've got. pic related.
>>
>>891587
Cheapest deck I could get from my local was $80, and back when I first started skating standard deck that me and my friends rode as well as a lot of others was 7.5, only people I knew who rode big boards where the transition guys.

Hey guys, is it possible to like skateboarding without being a skateboarder?


I remember in high school when Tony Hawks 2 was released and skateboarding seemed really popular at the time, there were some lads who picked up boards and started doing it for real but being a vidya guy, I just enjoyed the games you know.

Anyways what's your opinion on this?
I mean you can like music without knowing how play guitar for example?

Opinions pls.
>>
>>894402

Keep trying. sounds like your front foot isn't catching the nose properly
>>
>>893570

just buy the deck if it's only going to be a one time thing.

you guys do know some SOS have online sites right? it's never ok to shop at skatewarehouse. those extra bucks shouldn't matter if you want to support the community.
>>
Do you guys still talk like its the 90s saying rad and gnar and shit like that? Must be a weird spot considering none of you were alive when skateboarding was actually a thing
>>
>>894402
Your foot placement is obviously off.
>>
>>894408
>>894489
not sure if b8 but I'll bite

For liking skateboarding but not actually doing it that's kinda pussy shit m8. I mean I guess you're liking the "art" behind skateboarding like how you like the "art" of music, instead of the production design that went behind it. Skating is really easy to pick up though, unlike music (trust me, I know).

And yes I pretend it's the 90's ironically because I'm an ironic hipster faggot

Ask the shop to supply the deck you want. One time I sent a Facebook message to my local shop asking if they had a specific boarding stock from a pretty small, American company (UK here) and they replied the next day saying sorry they didn't. Then a week later they messaged me again and were like "dude we just got that board in for you." It was pretty cool.

On my regular board i could only ollie, heelflip bs180, fs shuv. while on the walmart board i was landing nice and clean shuvs of any variation, ollies were higher as well and everything just felt better and easier. I just felt more confident on it. It might be that the walmart board seemed like a 7.75 and I ride an 8.0 because that is what was recommended for a beginner since I have only been skating for about a year, maybe less considering i was out 3 months due to tearing my ankle badly. I regret buying a 8.0 and now i want a smaller board or maybe it was just the Walmart board. What do you guys think?

>go to sleep feeling like shit
>wake up at desk, gear up and skate my ass off
>suddenly more consistent and can recognize what i was doing wrong before that made me much less consistent

is this pretty normal? do you guys feel better skating right after sleeping, especially after a trick's given you a tough time, only to nail it/almost nail it when you wake up?

3D was in Zumiez though. There wasn't enough coverage from Austyn and BA at the time to carry the brand. Tom K and Ben Kadow were killing it before it went down.

This better be bait as fuck

There's a best trick contest at my park in a few weeks.
500 for first, 250 for second and 100 for third.
Do you think a late big spin down a 6 stair would place?

Olympic Park?

You're talking back 180 late shuv or some really amazing late midair bigspin? And how big is the set?
As long as you can put together a good line and bail as little as possible you'll be okay. If you're doing this in a best trick contest, you might need to step up a little more. Do something switch as a backup plan. Or back 180 late flip it after you land the back 180 late shuv.

I mean ollie normally, then a full big spin in the air. Without starting the spin part on the ground. I can land late 360 shuvs on the same set, so it is just a matter of doing a body varial.
The set is just a standard sized 6 stair.
It isn't a cumulative thing, there are very few rules, it's basically a freeskate of the whole park but if you do something cool they'll call it out. From what I can tell, lines don't count just singular tricks (though I imagine it'd look a lot cooler at the end of a line)
I'll keep practicing for it, but god damn it hurts to fuck up late shuv its, I always commit and half the time my catch is off so I just slam.

It isnt bait its legit. Im just wondering if its the board itself or the board size. tricks just feel easy on the walmart board, only shitty thing it doesnt roll worth shit.
>>
>>898477
It's most likely board size. Mainly because Kryptonics stopped making good boards after vert died. I can only recommend you to find a board in similar size and shape and go from there.
>>898408
So have you tried it before or you've been thinking of it and haven't tried it yet? If you have can you please post a vid of you attempting it? If you haven't, then really consider Back 180 late shuv as plan b.

unfortunately I just bought a new complete after christmas, going to 7.75 after It breaks, or i might just get used to it, been through 3 boards and i keep experimenting with them all.
>>
Guys- old fag here. Am I fooling myself trying to learn to ollie on a Land Yachtz Tugboat? Thinking on grass initially so I don't bust my osteoarthritic arse.
>>
>>898061
by general testimony, visualising a trick in your head multiple times gives you a better approach. It shouldn't be surprising now that I think about it.
>>
>>898477
it probably means you need to practice at a lower speed.
>>
>>898978
So could i use the board to practice until i have them down perfectly then switch to my regular board to practice them faster?
>>
>>897841
>tfw about 4 months in an I can barely rolling ollie
>>
>>899037
...or, you know, get an actual board and practice at the speed you 're comfortable with so you won't have to spend any time and money assembling a new board if you 're ready to go a little bit faster.
>>

please see >>897800
Already have a regular board.

I though this thread is dead due to snowstorm.

What's some cheap cruising wheels for a skateboard? Something that's at most 80a hardness, and I'm not sure about the size cause I've only ever used 52mm. Is 56mm big enough? I want something that's fast so I don't have to push a lot, but light enough so I can carry it easily and ollie over stuff

Don't give up

Ok after doing some research I realise I might get wheelbite.. I have low trucks and no risers, and I like to ride quite loose.. I'm probably around 60-65kg, anyway there are a lot of variables hard so I guess it's hard to tell which size will work without wheelbite. Do you think I should look into a pennyboard? Long boards are too big and hard to carry around, so I'm either looking at a cruise-like skateboard or a pennyboard. What do?

I was considering getting 58mm/60mm wheels but now I'm scared of wheelbite, and I don't have the budget to buy high trucks, risers and wheels
