Hey /esg/, I dislocated my ankle AND broke the fibula about 7 weeks ago which required surgery.
I'm still in recovery and probably won't be on my board for a awhile longer, so I was wondering if anyone had some advice or even some good reading/watching material on dealing with mental blocks caused by injuries?
If anything I'm more determined to take the time to refine my style, working towards making my tricks cleaner than ever before, but even now I can feel a bit of anxiety and mental blockage about getting back on my board.
I have some photos of my x-rays and my leg post surgery if anyone's interested?

Thoughts about Circa shoes? There's a pair on sale at my local shop and they're the cheapest pair that's in stock in my size.
>>
>>2039268
Yeah post the pics.
I don't know if I can point you to any material on getting over injuries. Sounds like self-help nonsense to me. You're gonna get better eventually and you're going to have lost a bunch of tricks. You'll probably be nervous on your board and more cautious than before. Eventually you'll totally recover physically and mentally. I don't think there's a secret to it though.

Can someone help me build a skateboard? I have no idea what I'm doing since I am a beginner.

I already have a deck picked out, but I'm confused when it comes to trucks. I read the recommended brands, but I don't know where to start.

I guess these are the bearings I should get? http://www.skateamerica.com/products/bones-reds-skateboard-bearings?variant=866657751

Then would these wheels be good since hard wheels wouldn't be very good for starting where I live? http://www.skateamerica.com/products/ricta-duo-tones-skateboard-wheels-red-black-54mm-98a-set-of-4?variant=26877672006
>>
>>2040281
Thunder, Venture and Indy's are your best options when it comes to truck.
What size is your deck?
>>
>>2040298
8 1/4

I know the brands but what do all the different sizes mean? What should I go with?
>>
>>2040316
you generally want to use trucks that are a similar size to your deck. For a 8.25 deck you'll want 149mm trucks. Pic related. Those sizes are the sizes used by the brand Independent. If you want to view similar chats just google "(brand name) trucks sizing chart".

Alternatively go to a shop and ask an employee to talk you through your set up.

best trucks you can buy for 40 bucks

if you want to spend extra money and get something "cool" you can get these, they're lighter and lower for "technical skating" (ie no difference for amateur skaters)

When you're filming, fill the frame with what you're filming. Cellphones usually have a 35mm to 28mm equivalent semi-wideangle, so you can fit a lot of stuff in there. In this case there's a lot of useless space up close and low. Also get the camera lower than eye level, drop to one knee if necessary. Also, rules of thirds composition.

My classes are all in the morning

I just dislike being the only guy spending all the time trying to pop ollies(tfw twice I was close to one but fell on my arse) while the other guys just do crazy shit. Also when you're with a bro if you fall or fail something its all giggles and shit, you even get hyped about almost doing something or doing a little drop on a small ramp, alone its meh

is there any hype playlist? I like most of the genres but have metal as my favourite, fucking love Death. Used to listen to punk too when I was younger(turning 21 in few months) but its ironically just PC garbage

There was this guy who used to come to my local park, right. He'd show up, plug his headphones in, and just go fucking crazy on flat ground. He was pretty beginner and didn't even have pop shuv its when I first saw him but he'd put so much effort into every trick like he was so fucking hyped. He didn't give a shit about us or anyone else at the park. Eventually, after a few months, he'd progressed an alright amount and he started chatting to us. Turned out to be a pretty chill bro and everyone respected him for being real and doing his own shit. I learned a lot from watching that guy, you should too.

yes. for example, i'm decent with grinds, yet horrible with flat. this is ironic because i've been skating for about 9 years and have only started getting into grinds about 3 years ago. there are two tricks i see a lot of beginners do, which are feebles and crooks. i can feeble perfectly but have such a hard time with crooks. i can do smith grinds, but can't tailslide, whereas it seems that most people find tailslides easier. front boards are more natural even though i learned back boards first (i can't do them anymore unless i tried really hard). everyone is good at something and maybe more if they put more effort

heroin or skull
>>
>>2060516
To be totally honest, if you work really hard to learn you won't seem like a poser. There is loads of videos on youtube about what to get and how to set up a board also how to learn tricks, you'll be okay famalam
>>
>>2060516
buy a skateboard from your local board shop and talk to them about your local scene. If you live in a decent sized city you should be able to find skateboarding events for beginners only where you can learn from more experienced skaters without feeling intimidated or anything. I know here in London there are loads of girl only events and I've seen a load of #girlswhoskate crews on instagram based here. If you don't want to get involved in the scene or anything then do what most people do and find a smooth patch of concrete somewhere and learn to roll around, get comfortable on the board, and get your beginner tricks down.
This anon >>2059754 is right. You'll only be considered a poser if you don't try.
>>
>>2060516
was in the same boat as you earlier this year (but not female). most advice i got was just to get comfy on your board first. skate everywhere on your board. you'll fall over probably, but you will improve. and from personal experience.. maybe buy some wrist guards? those are the only things i've really hurt. i got a few scratches and bruises elsewhere but only the risk of breaking my wrist was serious. i only wear the left one because i always land on that hand.

once you're comfy skating around on your board, i think you can either start getting comfy switch, or start learning to ollie, then move on to other stuff if that's your thing.

I live in eastern europe, and even though i'm in the capital, the skate scene is extremely small. As far as i've looked beginner courses are only during the summer and aimed for kids/young teens. Also never seen a girl skater here, like a legit one that actually skates, not cruises.

how do you guys feel about the whole skater-owned vs corporate shoes shitshow?

im so on the fence bc i definitely sympathize with supporting the skater owned brands but every now and then theres some corporate brand shoes that are just perfect. like im skating the nike cory kennedys rn and they're probably the best shoe ive had.

o well ill probably go back to emericas after these
>>
>>2059922
All those brands are laughing stock because they're so cheesy, just as cheesy as Welcome plastering The Vigil of Lucifer all over their awful Hot Topic/Urban Outfitter-tier products.
>>
>>2065003

for me it doesn't matter, it just gives another brand to support. at this point, we can't do anything about trying to get corporate out of skating so we might as well enjoy their products if it's something that we want or believe in. I avoid nike as much as possible because their shoes look like shit.
>>
>>2040125
They have a history of stiffing their riders. Don't support them.
>>
>>2065003
It's all the same shit and the same shitty ass marketing tricks to make you think one way or the other.

for example consider faggot ass brand thrasher, they've marketed themselves as the "super punx, fight da corporate system" brand, same with Vans, and yet they're the largest brands in skateboarding. every little faggot retard has a pair of vans and a thrasher hoodie and these same fuckwads will bash nike for being a larger corp. u r a complete fucking shill once u have brand loyalty. shit is fucked up and retarded and all companies are taking advantage of u as a consumer.

best thing to do is do whatever the fuck you want to. buy the shit that you think is the best. fuck everything else.
>>
>>2065218
Go read Transworld then you bitch-ass angsty edgelord.
>>
>>2065218
You're missing the point, seemingly deliberately too. As both Vans and Thrasher have a history of being there for skating. Nike on the other hand wanted nothing to do with skating when it wasn't popular.
>>
Had a solid skate this weekend. Local park was packed so I practiced flat ground. Finally started landing some clean bs 180's. My problem was all in prepping the trick. On the same day, I started landing pop shuvs. Got 3 or 4 nice front shuvs, and a boatload of backside shuvs. Felt so damn good. Gonna move onto flip tricks tomorrow, my problem with kickflips has been catching too early. While I've only attempted a couple of heelflips and they didn't feel right. I couldn't even pop the board.

1. Don't step in the mud and then on your board.

>same with Vans
Van's do no such thing
>yet they're the largest brands in skateboarding
In skating, Nike and Adidas are sport brands. Major difference.
>will bash nike for being a larger corp
Thrasher doesn't bash Nike you fuckwit, they promote them.
>all companies are taking advantage of u as a consumer
No shit all companies try to sell you shit. What kind of fucking retarded point is that? But buying from brands who have always and will continue to support skating, is better than buying from bullshit sport brands which will pull their support if skating stops being trendy.
>best thing to do is do whatever the fuck you want to. buy the shit that you think is the best. fuck everything else.
Buy what you want, but not supporting legit skate brands hurts the actual skate industry.
>>
>>2067923
For $180 ?
Nah, $120-135 is more than enough
>>
>>2068458
Definitely this. Skating had a lull in popularity a few years back in Australia. Nike shoes were everywhere but nike skate shoes dissapeared. That said, I still own a pair of Nike SB's, they were no doubt the best skate shoe I have owned. Too bad they are too small now.
Vans suck, I payed ~$120 for a pair of vans x anti-hero shoes, they were comfy as fuck but only lasted 6 months. Meanwhile I've owned DC's that are going strong 5 years on, and macbeths that have lasted over a year now.
There Is a Vans shop In Sydney, and I went in to see If they sold any skate supplies. (Think I needed griptape or a new deck maybe.) They only sold shoes, and only sold overpriced flimsy canvas shit. I was disappoint.
>>
>>2067923
yes bro. fucking do it and spend some quality time outdoors. You don't have to do extreme shit, you know that.
>>
>>2068458
>Eventually being successful doesn't inherently contradict that

although there are strong arguments against this statement, I 'm going to talk specifically about Thrasher's case, which it does. I read the archive of older issues they have online (everyone should) and it's a whole different magazine. Read any issue up until 1992.


>Van's do no such thing

one of the biggest shoe corps in the world. Did you miss their latest advertising? Where do I begin? Grosso spearheads it, you know, the legit guy (and he is legit and I like the guy and what he stands for) and their whole "just kids coming to our shop, been there since day one".


>Thrasher doesn't bash Nike you fuckwit, they promote them.

but Thrasher is a centre platform for companies surrounding it and enhancing it. Those companies are the core of the skateboard industry, including some shoe companies. Thrasher can't deny Nike money, and some shoe companies resist the competition more vocally and now they don't exist (e.g. Fallen, Lakai is trembling). WHen was the last time you saw a Consolidated ad? The point is, "core" shoe companies hate the Nike competition, but it's not Thrasher they 're going to protest through.


>But buying from brands who have always and will continue to support skating, is better than buying from bullshit sport brands which will pull their support if skating stops being trendy.

that's nto a valid point now, is it? Nike has invested too much money and time to pull out anytime soon, especially since the tides are finally turning for them, also seeing how the world is now transitioning into a more formal corporatocracy. You could say however the most logical argument: Nike doesn't produce skateboards; they don't produce trucks; nor wheels; and their cred is by association, they do not have any history, besides their attempts at video making.

The skateboard industry is gradually becoming morecontest oriented, like in the 80s. It's that poppular again. The enw giant emerging
>>
>>2069504
Nonetheless, the new giant emerging is not a Powell-Peralta, not a Santa Cruz, and not a truck company, because the capital accumulated is greater through all these years.
Now, the giant is a world-wide distributing shoe company, a world-wide covering network of contests with advertisment partially done for free through social media.
And with oppression ten fold what it was 20 years back? Either hit the park with all the geeks or stay home and WORSHIP the idols of SLS and shit.

Solution?
The aforementioned accumulation of the capital leads to some of it (i.e. fundamental and outdated techniques-deck making, old molds etc.) being socialised, passed on to the people where they can make some profit while having access. New and small board companies that spring all over the place. BUT, BUT, BUT: if we can't find a POPULAR alternative to skate shoes, the giant system of the Nike conglomeration will absorb it. That's the nature of the beast. This goes back to your first statement.
>>
>>2069008
For board and shoes too?
>>
>>2069509

>the giant system of the Nike conglomeration will absorb it
as disgusting nike is with buying out skaters by paying bigger checks or a better flowgram, they do try and give back to the community with building parks and buying out la courthouse.

I'm very new to skating and I guess what I'm asking will just come with experience, but how do I stop falling off when just cruising around?

Like the other week I was out with a friend cruising around/getting to grips with everything and I fell off backwards twice - the board just flew away from underneath me. Really messed my elbow up from it and couldn't skate for a while in fear of messing it up even more. Also, I just feel really unbalanced/uncomfortable when pushing. Shit's really disheartening. And today I was practising ollieing on grass and really nailed it but when I tried to do it on a paved area the board just flew of forwards and I fell backwards again.
>>
>>2069705
Keep your weight directly over the board and lean forward a little when you push (not too much unless your pushing really hard) you'll get used to it soon, it took me like two and a half weeks of skating every day to get fully comfortable
>>
>>2069665
For a complete setup, why would you pay more that $60 on shoes? Where the fuck do you live?
>>
Tell me secret warehouse parks in the East coast
>>
>>2070077
Florida, the complete I put together would be like $130, so I figured $50 for shoes.
>>
>>2069701
I grew up next to a park built by the Pepsi and while I enjoyed the swings and the slides, it in no way changed the fact that their company was a fucked up one.

Fuuuuuuck man, I lived the broken fibula dream two months ago after I drilled a car bombing a hill.

My advice, if your doctor doesn't recommend physiotherapy, call him a fag and demand it or go do it yourself. I lost pretty much all the muscle in my leg when I snapped it, I still can't ollie or ride any banks over 45 degrees, and my leg buckles when I speedwobble. Not to mention the new fear. I had fucking cold sweats when I rolled over 20 after my bail. Your gonna basically be a bitch for a while. Expect all that.

I'm more into high-speed shit so I dunno about it affecting flips and shit, but I'm assuming its gonna make a difference. Don't kill yourself if you start out as crap when you get back on the board, just know its gonna happen.

I would recommend grabbing a set of softer wheels in the same size as your currents for when you restart. I say that 'cause the vibration from my 101a's made it so I couldn't support my own weight after 15 minutes. I have some 78a's on there now, I can go for hours.

When you get back on, don't charge back out to the rails or stairs or whatever the fuck you like. Just take some time and cruise around a bit. The soft wheels will help that. The best way to gain muscle for skating is to fucking skate. Bounce around and keeping things chill until you get a clean medical slate/go 'fuck it' and do your old thing is the best thing to do. Plus, it gets you over the fear before you go back to the heavy shit.

So yeah, recover fast, get the fuck back on ASAP, and do your thing.

Terminology question. Humour a newbie, or something.

What's the difference between fakie and switch? In the sense that I thought fakie was when the board's tail is going forward, and switch was nose going forward with rear leg on nose.

>>2093800
Attempt the same trick over and over and over again. Then, when you've failed 500+ times, think about what the board does when you try, and compare it to what it should do. Change your approach and see if you're any closer after another 500 attempts. Rinse and repeat.

Hey, /esg/, I'm heading to college soon and I think the building where my specific classes are held in don't like students carrying around boards/anything that isn't materials. Is there any way I can downsize to a small board (20''-25''?) without looking or feeling like a tremendous faggot by everyone around me? Also recommendations if you will

I can't wait to learn Indy airs on this Scram x Assault board I got. I'm liking what Nolan Johnson is doing and hopefully he puts together a team.
