Fine, I'll go pimp myself out to buy a fucking RED camera and become the kooky Ty Evans of St. Louis. See you in a few years with my drones and steadicams. Hopefully, I'll find one of you guys to film your wonderful ollies in 4k and all that debt will go away because you got sponsored by Red Bull and I stopped skating to pursue making a full fledged We Are Blood ripoff.
(that was all sarcasm)

But seriously, thank you for telling me and I'll continue to make shitty videos because I really don't want to buy a DSLR as an entry point to go HD when there are better cameras out there that are an easier transition point from analog to digital. Especially, since I'm not in a position to drop a couple grand on a camera with no promise to get into the industry.

I'm so excited, lads. I also bought a sheet of clear grip so I can do something sorta fun with it. The anon with the Taylor Swift photo in the last thread inspired me. I'm going to do something similar, but with a photo of Molly Bair (pic related).

What do you guys think about skate nicknames like "jaws" "mango" the lizard king" ?

yelling and getting mad will only make it more likely that you will not land the trick and continue to fuck up.

hammers board was pretty nice, very light feeling, must be that mexican factory glue. the iron claw was dense feeling but still had pop.

thats probably where it belongs, i tried to skate it and it sort of works, but the tail is so small compared to the rest of the board you literally feel a delay when you pop it hah.

before those i was riding this girl deck from 2010 i know everyone says they break quick... but i thrashed it and it was still going. i got this auby taylor black label board waiting now.

oh and i live in dallas im usually at lewisville or mckinney.. well not lately because im broke but.. just in case anybody out there is from dfw too.

Not mad by any means. I was genuinely wondering what the fuck you were thinking. Now at least I know it's merely because flat chested boywomen turn you on. You do you brother, I could care less.

The poorest regions (North, Northeast and the rainforest) are under military help to combat the aedes aegypti mosquitoe (They think they're on a real war, as we have no use for the military here and it's one of the few "emergency situations" they'll ever experience)

But here at the Southeast, south and "richest regions" no one really gives a shit. At the news you hear "oh my god we need to help the north and combat the virus!" and that's all.

There's at least 5 mosquitoes flying next to me right now. As Zika aren't here yet, there's no worries. For now.

I have a question /esg/, I used to skate a lot as a kid/teenager, and when I was into it, like the widest board people rode was like 7.75-8. I went to my local skateshop last weekend and bought a 7.5 width deck because that's what I used to ride, but now being a just shy of 200 pounds almost 30 year old, the deck feels tiny and flimsy as fuck. did I fuck up? should I just go back and buy an 8.5 or something? the 7.5 deck used to feel just fine, will it go back to feeling normal as I get used to it again?
>>
>>947130
Just go with 8.25

Any weight, any height, any trick type. It is the universal board size.
>>
>>947130
You'll get used to it eventually but you should've tried out some different shapes and sizes at your shop.
Also what size are your trucks? Because if you do plan on moving up, a 8.5 deck would be unstable on 7.5 trucks.
Hope that info helps a bit.

Well it's your word against mine isn't it?

I could tell you about how I hit my first handrail (8 stair) at 14 after just a year of skating.

I could tell you about how I have been skating for 7 years and how half the locals at my park are either flowed or on a team.

But it wouldn't matter because a newfie like yourself fueled solely by jealousy wouldn't dare believe such a thing.

Have fun with your ollie trick tips kid, you'll get it down someday.

and I also think San Fransisco sucks and Dogtown and Santa Cruz are the real meccas of skateboarding.
>>
>>947165
Getting paid to skate was never a goal of mine. I have a 4.2 college gpa and would not want to rely simply on my own physical capacities to substantiate my income. Plus anyone who knows shit about skateboarding knows you either hit or miss with being sponsored. The nyjahs and the shecklers are the only ones making the real money, and the chance of that ever being me was pretty damn slim. Thankfully, I realized this at a young age so I just do it for fun.

>>947170
Yeah Santa Cruz is great. But you can't say SF "sucks" when all your favorite skaters are still ripping spots 20 minutes away from where I live. Imo, SF and NY are the current hubs for skate culture. Having lived in both cities, that's what I've observed.

There's never nothing to skate

-NO PARK? build DIY ledge/flatbar/quarter. There's always somewhere to build in a 5 mile radius (unless you live in London then you're 100% cucked). It sounds like you have actual spots to skate if you get kicked out of places so I'm going to guess you don't live in a rural area or some shit. Parking garages, empty parking lots, warehouse areas, behind stores or office buildings...ANYWHERE you can pour crete (just don't get caught).
-WINTER?: perfect flatground skills. all you need is an empty garage and some motivation. A whole winter of flat and your board control will be top notch. It will fuck you up when do your tricks fast though so there's that.

Just skate with the bushing you have now and if you notice that they begin to flat out, change them. But in the end, it's your choice to switch them out or not.

I've been skating for like 7 years and I'm so disappointed. I don't seem to be getting better, actually I feel like I'm getting worse. I skate all the time and no matter what I always lose my tricks. I find myself repeatedly trying tricks and never landing tricks that I could do four years ago. I did my first kickflip like four years ago and I still don't have them consistently. This is getting so frustrating seeing people at the local park who keep getting better and I keep getting worse. Any advice?

you might never get consistent kickflips. some flip tricks work better for others. one thing that helps is to definitely NOT do the same trick over and over again. i know that sounds stupid when you don't know many tricks, but just focus on doing something, then once you've done it.. cool. you've got it. let it stew in your brain and only bring it out when you need to. if you don't make it, you don't make it. when you force yourself to do something over and over and over it doesn't neccessarily make you better.

remember: they say practice makes perfect. but perfect practice makes perfect. don't put yourself into bad habits by "practicing" something you just bail over and over.

if you get more specific about what tricks you do have and what obstacles you have i could try and offer more advice.

start learning to push switch. can you switch ollie? or try learning just straight nollies, they're retardly easy and fun. i'm sure you can do 180s.... try pivoting them into 360s.

also don't really worry too too much about getting better dude, if you can cruise around and have fun you're golden.

I used to skate a lot about 5 years ago, and always sucked. Went and bought a complete yesterday and am already better than I was. I'm landing shuvits and ollies easy while stationary, which I could never do, even getting really close to heels. But when I start moving I can't do shit. If I land an Ollie, which is always like 1/4 the height I can do stationary, I rotate about a quarter in the air like a tard. Whenever I land a shuvit I also land basically in a nose manual position and it ceases my movement. I want general tips, but mostly concerned about not being able to Ollie at all really while moving. I think that's the root of my problems

For the Ollie who moving I think its really just pop harder amd do the Ollie movements faster than you would when stationary I've found that I can ollie about three boards stacked sideways while going fast but I can't really get near that high stationary.

just roll around doing your ollies. try turning your shoulders as far as you can and do and then launch your ollie, you'll feel 180s start to happen, they're super easy. bail kickflips into the grass. try powersliding the board 180s. you have to build up the 'skate muscles' to some extent so maybe in another month you'll just find that shit comes way easier to you. it just takes time trust me. take your trucks off your board and do shuv its on the carpet. that is one trick that you can totally learn that way, then it works the same way with the trucks back on. i'm sure you'll be able to learn a shuv on carpet, 100% sure.
>>
>>950117

yeah everyone does that 90 degree turn thing when they are learning ollies. what helped me was to focus on ninja kicking my front foot out. you can already ollie so just focus on exaggerating the front foot "slide". you'll bail them of course, but eventually you will literally begin to feel the front foot bringing the board more than normal. you will literally feel it rising against your back foot. this will not only help you get height, but end the turning issue because you're putting more of your momentum forward.

also watch Mike Mo videos. He really exaggerates the way he puts his shoulders square, squats and brings his arms into his chest, then flings his arms outward parallel to the board. doing this will also prevent you from turning a bit in the air if the front foot thing doesn't help. everyone does this to some degree but i think its most visible in the way Mike Mo skates.

being able to do tricks stationary and moving is totally different, as you can already tell. so don't be afraid to know how to do them stopped but not rolling. even when you're doing them stopped, you're building muscle and muscle memory that will eventually help. but the key to doing flip tricks/anything while rolling is to NOT look at the board or your feet. AT ALL. you have to look where you are going before you pop and while you slide your feet. it sounds crazy but it will eventually work for you. the other reason it works is because when you are not looking at your feet, you are subconsciously just 'doing the motion that makes the trick work'. when you're staring at your feet you're trying to move your feet in a certain way visually, which just doesn't work, no one can control their body like that.

for me i think of it like i'm throwing my trick forward. and i'm looking at where i want to throw the trick TO the whole time. i'm not even looking for the landing really i'm just trying to fling the board and my body to where i'm looking.. and subconsciously it ends up happening. its weird but after you do your first couple you'll see what i mean i think.

oh and one last thing that i know sounds insane: the faster you are going, the easier flip tricks become to flick. i wish i knew why, but it does seem to be true.

you will come to realize that a majority of skateboarding and learning new tricks is all mental
5050s are the same as just an ollie onto something, with a little bit of balance.
Kickflipping a 10 stair is the same motion as doing it on flat ground, etc.
Try forcing yourself to commit, even if you have to eat shit a few times.

is this what being a dad is like?

I'm going to start skating tomorrow. I have a helmet as i used to bmx.

I've never stood on a board before. I fucking can't wait to get my board at the shop.

What do i need to learn first? How should i do to don't break my bones?

I made a video for you guys, just some flip tricks

Learn to actually ride a skateboard, Seriously.
Don't be that guy who gets his first board and tries to do tricks without be able to push around at moderate speed.
Get comfortable with your board, you'll be glad you did in the future.
>>
>>951505
thanks for the advice. I keep trying to commit but I just cant stay on it like I can on a ledge. Maybe I gotta lock my ankles on them or something. thanks senpai
>>
>>951533
what this guy, >>951551 ,said essentially.
It's going to be way way harder just to ride around than you would expect.
I used to ride unicycles and my balance hardly helped me learn to push around on a skateboard
>>
>>951464
Yeah I can do them going really fast, they're just scooped. Like I can't back 180 over anything.
>>
>>951533
kinda like what everyone else is saying, get really comfortable on your board. I always see people at skateparks who keep trying pretty hard tricks, but then you see them and they look so clumsy and awkward riding around the park. Don't be that person.

I was genuinely wondering what the fuck you were thinking. Now at least I know it's merely because flat chested boywomen turn you on. You do you brother, I could care less.

All I'm saying is in my park, that shit would not pass. No doubt. I just don't understand how you could get away with that without being dealt absolute social torment.

East bay livin baby. Bitch the bay area is where skateboarding thrives. No need to be jelly just because you don't live a $4 train ride away from thrasher's headquarters and some of the most famous street spots ever skated.

Pic related is my local park and my friend doing a crazy texas plant. It's 60 degrees outside right now, how about you?

Most people don't ridicule each other over personal taste

You do that? I thought that only happened in high school and shitty movies

Thank you all bros. I plan to use my board to move accross the city (even if not that fast, at least in the start). Is that a good thing to train too, right? Should i worry about the wheels or something like that?

Do NOT rely on your skateboard for transportation until you have been skating for at least a few weeks.
>Is that a good thing to train too, right?
pushing around and getting a feel for your board is good, then try manuals, then manuals down curbs, etc
>Should i worry about the wheels or something like that?
wheels aren't gonna be an issue, they don't really break.
If I were you I would get a board size of about 8.25-8.5, something nice and large.
Throw some Reds on there with a rather large wheel and you should be set to go.
>>
landed my first kickflip today after 3 months of trying. landed 2 after that then a double flip on accident. I keep having a problem where I kick too hard and it flips too much for me to catch, also how do I catch the board. I just do the motion and blindly jump and pray I land. If I can get these consistent then I will be satisfied with my skating, been skating for a little over a year.
>>
>>951643
Congrats anon!
>>
>>951649
Thanks, I just went out with no intent to do anything special started dicking around and ended up trying kick flips.
>>
>>951643
a proper (debatable) kickflip will have the board slide up with you as you jump, so catching the flip at the height of your jump.
Don't go for crazy slow flips or anything like that, just keep your foot close to the bolts and give it a quick motion.
>>
>>951681
So it should be a quick flip then? I should catch it in the air and bring it down. Alright.
>>
>>951572
>All I'm saying is in my park, that shit would not pass.

This is the new meme.
>>
>>951703
I don't have any gifs on hand, but this anon's video should give you an idea. (play it in slow motion)
https://youtu.be/XCOfQ4-Ogoc
see how the jump, flip, and catch all occur before he reaches the apex of his jump? Also note how his feet stay relatively close to the board, so that the catch is less of a deliberate thing and more automatic.
Far from a perfect kickflip, but I'm on my phone and I'm lazy
>>
>>951718
Also, make sure that you aren't just drilling kickflips over and over and over.
Do them right.
If you pay attention and really focus, and I mean FOCUS on what you are doing, you should be nailing them in almost no time.
it's about quality muscle memory, not # of times attempted.
Every time you mess up a kickflip, stop and think about what went wrong.
Remember to jump high, and keep your shoulders parallel to the board.
good luck

Alright thanks looks like I have a lot to work on, cant wait to try again tomorrow. The backfoot catch is the thing that gets me, looks like I need lift it up just barely instead of bringing it up super high and forgetting to put it down until Ive landed.
>>
>>949292

This goes to show just how important Diego Meek and Logan Devlin were as filmers to the Welcome aesthetic. The skating here is top notch but the filming and editing are absolute fucking garbage.

Welcome needs to get a good filmer/editor if they want anybody to care about their new team.
