>>
>>1283182
I doubt your LSS will do anything.
bones.com/why/warranty/
I don't know where you're at, but it could be worth it to ship it to them with an explanation of what happened. Worst case scenario you lose some money from shipping and lose a broken wheel if they decide it wasn't defective. I'd bet they'll send you another set and cover the shipping though since I've never seen a wheel do this.
>>
>>1283207
You should probably include a receipt or other proof of purchase as well.

>>1283182

They might be able to order it for you 9/10 if they're a cool shop. Sometimes the people the shop gets it from (the company, distributor) doesn't have anymore, either and can't send it to the shop anyway.

I definitely encourage people to support shops! People can build local, private parks with the money sometimes that comes in from a shop. Stuff like contests, jams, random skate teams coming through to do demos. All possible with shops.

Can anyone give me some tips on no-comply? I gave them a good try today and realized that it's a lot harder than they look.
Please help lads
>>
>>1284223

Doing them straight without an obstacle is hard, you have to step forcefully, then really snap the tail, bonk it off your knee pretty much, then jump back on. Doing them straight using a curb to bonk the tail on is easier. Step onto the curb and let the tail hit the curb it'll even itself out and you can get on.

Frontside 180 is the easiest NC. Turn your shoulders all the way, as far as you can front side, while having your front foot heel hanging off a good amount, back foot centered, then just slip the front foot off, and the tail will hit on its own, and you should front 180 on your own because you wound up your shoulders, pivoting on your front toes/foot. At first you'll have the board land first, then you'll step onto it, as you get better you'll be able to jump with it, and get on before it lands. If you have trouble getting it to work, try to get your front foot off cleanly first, after that, work on getting a good snap of the tail, but the key is really you want to push the board around with your back foot after the snap... That's why winding up helps as well it will help you get that front side pushing motion of the back foot you need. You kind of want to "push" the board a full 180 with you back foot, literally turning your back foot around with the board

Backside .... Its the same... Step off, scoop, step on... But its much more exaggerated, hang your front foot toes off like the whole way, just your heel on. You want your back foot toes deep in the pocket. You need to scoop the board hard, like a shuvit, really... It needs to 180 fully way early to make it through your legs or your just gonna hit the back of your knee. Hope this helps

>Predictions?
Birdhouse looks like they want to win at all costs. Last episode they were in the van after the board building contest talking about how they should have cheated by peeking. This plus the clip of what looks like Clint pushing someone off their board during a trick attempt makes me think they will win but look like extra-juvenile twat-jocks in doing so.

Go Toy Machine/Chocolate!

Had one of these, it was an 8. Broke it on a varial flip today. Planning on getting an 8.25 or something.

They are for sure systematic like the Zero team. The documentary that talked about Jaime having all the spots lined up in each city sounds exactly what the Birdhouse team is doing. This kind of regimentation feels so sports team to me so I really just hope they lose to the stoner Toy Machine dudes.
>>

>>1286108
Okay, perhaps edgy was the wrong word. I just think that coloured trucks and wheels look really cheap and poor quality for some reason. Kind of like they belong on a Walmart board or something. They just give off a plastic kind of vibe. But whatever, ride what you want to ride.
p.s. >>1286111 is my deck and I have silver trucks and white wheels and I'm 22 not 12 and they don't even have zumies in my country.

Shows how mellow vert really is. Most street skaters peak at what would you say? 25-28?
>>
>>1286903

That's what you'd think but its not so true anymore, is: guy, ave.. Kostons fully flared part was all him in his 30s (assuming the earliest footy was from 2005) .. If Reynolds kickflipping UCI gap (staygold ender) is "his 900" he did that at 32
>>
>>1286813
I see what you're saying, but it's black. lots of raw metals come in that color. It also matches the deck and bushings so I would give that at least +5 more points putting it at a 7/10. I think I also see the color of the wood matches the green on the wheels. Thats another +1. If he has white/black hardware I would give him +1 more point.
>>
>>1286919
Good point. What do you think Kostons 900 was? Also Ave's and Guy's?
>>
>>1286933
hardware is all black
i don't try to match anything
i had the deck laying around and i always buy matte black thunders and these are the hardies collabs so i copped instantly

Koston's was definitely the 360 flip noseblunt. His switch hardflip and switch bigflip down the double set in Fully Flared comes close for me as well.

>Okay. No, I wouldn’t ride for a mainstream sports footwear brand. I would not skate for Big Company Footwear.

I like pops. He was good as fuck in his time, and his fully flared part was certainly ahead of the curve by a long shot. When FF first came out I can't lie I thought his part was stupid. But that's certainly the direction skating has gone in, and it feels current when you watch it today. I also like how he doesn't try to be fake, even if he comes off as a dick.

I don't like the way he posts photos of """""tricks""""" on Instagram but there's never footage to prove he actually did it though

This was after about an hour of skating. It does a little bit but I really like how it looks distressed.

Weight, size capabilities, turning response and how durable they are.
In my personal opinion, the four best brands are Indy, Thunder, Venture and Krux.

>>1288952

How would I know what size is right for my board?

>>1288966
Depends on what size your deck is, since every truck in labeled differently.

The different geometries of their designs result in different turning, and weight, and materials used affect grinding (esp titanium trucks like theeve), you'll develop a preference for which brand you like and which model with time at first it doesn't matter much

agreed. I got a pair of sk8his last year and I love them. But now everyone wears any kind of vans with the stripe. Cut them off mine so I don't look like one of them

Old Skool Pro's have really great board feel and are grippy.
Try them out.

But do they have customers/sales?

>>1289689

They're good in the sense that they're all a high top needs to be and nothing it doesn't. Also because every pair you get, in whatever color, feels and skates the same. They're dependable like that. But the downside is, they're vans so they fuck your feet up and go bald fast. I like to always have a pair on backup. Want to try the ones with a zipper in the back

After leaving Anti-Hero few weeks ago, Andrew Allen now skates for Hockey.

Okay so not exactly skate related still skate related:
Did the CKY crew take off because of Bam's skateboarding, Jess being in CKY, or DiCamillo's videography?
>>
>>1290159
I think it appealed to the skate crowd because Bam was in it, and that crowd stayed for the antics of the the group. Plus there was some cool filming and CKY just went well with what they were doing which made the video fun to watch.

Just out of curiosity, what size trucks and wheels do you guys ride?

Haven't you watched the YouTube video?

I buy 54mm wheels and ride them down to 50mm. 139 venture trucks.

147 Thunder Hi's with 53-54 Spitfires

147 thunder hollow lights and 53 mm formula 4

Who do you consider to be stylish?

>>1290719
Seriously you should not even acknowledge his existence.
>>
>>1290914

I buy 56s so they last longer cause I slide a lot. the extra size isnt really much different once you get used to them anyway. I have a set of normal 159s and a set of hollow axle 139s so I can have a big board and flippy board going at the same time

Just because they got somebody with a basic understanding of physics to explain to you mongloid highschool dropouts how it gives more pop doesn't mean it helps, at all.
You get more pop but you have a higher center of gravity. Thus everything becomes harder to land.
Risers are for bowl riders and cruiser decks.

please quit skating you FUCKING kook
>>
>>1291864

Look at all of the eastern exposure and subzero videos. Guys like oyola and reason rode risers and were as good as it got for street tricks. I'll grant you they're really not necessary unless you've got 56+ but part of the reason for that is because they don't make your ride worse in any way. Its just a preference.
>>
>>1291883
Haha. His father was killed in a riser factory accident.

>>1291907

I like IC2 a lot, its great. After about halfway through the amount of skating drops off tho i usually just watch the first half. Haven't seen their other shit

If weight isn't a issue, the truck model shouldn't matter. I honestly can't tell the difference between standard and hollow lights
>>

wheels tend to be made with weird standards in the middle so the spacers may not even fit wheels from a set in which the other wheels can have spacers.

Lol. The reality is you are a little whiny bitch trying to proselytize a subculture with your shitposting. Skaters will, and always will, ride what works for them, not what some 10 year old kid cries about on 4chan.

The slim fit ones at Walmart are good, already have 3. Best $20 I've spent

Again, you address none of my points.
"What works for them" or preference or whatever has nothing to do with this.
This isn't about brands or other stupid bullshit, it is physics.

They sell Dickies at Kmart that are tailored for skateboarding. They're out on a rack with Vincent Alvarez and Jake Johnson on the poster thing

The """""titanium""""" thunders are pointless, its a titanium axle only, so its surrounded by normal metal.. The hollows with both hollow hangar and kingpin are worth it if you can spare the money, otherwise just get the regular ones

So that's what those kook pants are called.
Kid at my local wears those, a leather belt with a tucked in t shirt.
I think he is trying to look like david byrne, haircut and all.
He is always doing weird bonelesses and stuff

according to what you say, I 'm fucked for switching to larger wheels. And I am.
>>
>>1292168
he's just giving his opinion, he's not trying to proselytize.

Cool deck, i hate black/colored wheels thought since they give that walmart board look for some reason.
