>JAY:I know you’re one of the innovator guys in the crossover sports like motocross, skateboarding, surfing and snowboarding. Were you ever afraid to not be good at something, like you might be embarrassed and kook it at snowboarding.


>NATHAN: Well, I wasn’t afraid of being embarrassed, but it humbles you and teaches you that the person who is maybe not the best is having the most fun. Just learning how to do something is almost more fun because you don’t have any expectations of yourself. To be able to go out and have that much fun is like learning to surf in the beginning. Once you have pressure on yourself and you have expectations of what you should do or what other people are doing, it becomes kind of monotonous. Doing something different is so great and new. It’s a new experience and all new people. So all those things that I’ve done have been almost by accident, just wanting to have that rush that surfing gives you. I would do it and want to be good and try it and do it long enough to where I’d gotten to be experienced at it. It’s not that I was at a great level, but maybe it was a comfort level where I felt that I could skateboard or snowboard or ride a motorcycle. At this moment, I wouldn’t be able to do half of what I did at the time when I was not as well practiced. If I went skating for two years everyday and never surfed, that’s how it was. Now I’m back to where it’s just fun. It hasn’t been like something where I want to be the world champ. I’m just stoked to know or see or be a part of all of it. All of that stuff is incredible.

Saw someone posting his skate shoes on the older thread. He was starting skating and got worried if he's doing smth wrong because the holes are more on the side of the shoe and not further ahead. I noticed the same thing on mine. I just startet skating and I am a bit worried about my technique now. So is it normal or should I try using my toebox for sliding up my ollies. Sorry for my bad english. Picture is from the guy of the previous thread
>>
>>2151899
That hole is in the completely normal place. Ollies wear down that part of the shoe. if you're getting the same holes then your technique is right.
>>
>>2151899
my holes are in the exact same place, but mine are a bit fucked cause there's a seam there

Yeeeew, landed a kickflip today. Been landing on the tail for the last few days, and some kid at the park told me to jump forwards and toeside more.
Gonna buy some new shoes tomorrow as my Macbeths are trashed. I really liked the look of the Toy Story Vans, though vans never seem to last. Do DC still make a nice shoe /esg/?

I'm 23 and only got back into it in july (i used to skate in midfle school but i only ever rolled around or went down ramps). I'm just now getting ollies down. Lids at the park wont judge you for being old, they will just respect you for learning how to skate again

Hey esg i just wanted to say that I learned 360 flips last year and now Im trying to 50-50 in rails...
Fuck that shit is hard, I can get to grind it but i cant Land them because my Skateboard "sticks" on the rail.
I know that if I wax it, it would be easier but I Also know that going raw its What gives the style idk lol
Any advice for balancing and landing them?

What a lame fucking kook, being naked counts for nothing if you aren't even doing a fucking trick. Would have been better if he was just rolling on flat rather than showing he was too much of a pansy to hit coping with his cock out
>>
>>2158651
I have an irrational fear of vertical, no matter the height. I am optimistic that it will wear off eventually.
But here's the deal: sometimes I hit the coping accidentally and even edge off. The other day I just went up with more speed than usual and my front truck cleared the coping and I went back fakie. My trucks have never been caught on the rail. How is that even possible?? I feel good about it but it confuses me!
Also, I hear a lot of people have trouble with kickturning but aren't afraid to either drop in and/or clear coping. I could kickturn before I could even pump properly. Explain, because I gather you are good with vert.
>>

Just don't be a sissy dude. That's honestly what you're problem is

>>2158697
that's not why I made the post. Explain to me the coping mystery!

Update on the Darkstar deck. Got it about an hour ago, put the tucks on and stood on it. Looking down at it it almost seems like the nose half of the board is a lot thinner than the tail. Seems to have a decent pop, but I can't see it lasting long. Can't really skate it properly right now cause it's been raining like crazy the past few days.
>>
anyone have any normal shuvit tips? i have been trying this for a month now and i just cant wrap my head around it and its really frustrating me.

3 months maximum. But it'll be faster if you don't give a shit about other people and go practice at the park.

>I hear a lot of people have trouble with kickturning but aren't afraid to either drop in and/or clear coping
Literally never heard anything like this in my life. Everyone's first move on transition is the kick turn. The fear that you're talking about goes away eventually as you get more comfortable on your board, but it'll go away a lot faster if you physically make yourself do things beyond your skill level. 95% of the time falling over sucks for less than 90 seconds.

Ride channel and some others on youtube has some tutorial videos I find to be more geared towards adults rather than preteens like braille, but it's spotty the type of tricks you can find. I will say tho, the Neen Williams Heelflip tutorial is 10/10
>>
>>2158713
What coping mystery? That your truck went over the coping and you didn't hang up coming back to fakie? That's casue your weight's on your back foot.

it's all in your back foot.
Literally lift your front foot off of the board and keep it out of the way.
It does no pushing or scooping or anything. It just gets out of the way.
Then you jump and flick your back foot behind you using your toes to really push/scoop the board around.
Practice with a deck (no trucks) on carpet to get used to only using your back foot.

>legless male skaters are still better than majority of girl skaters
Can we stop praising skater girls for doing mundane crap yet? There are a few who rip, but the majority who doing nothing of value still get praised more than a talented male. Anatomy ceases to be an excuse when legless dudes still go harder than them.
>>
>>2163468
Don't get me wrong, I like that female skaters exist. But I think its lame they are not pushed to be actually good like men. And instead are able to skate at a below average level by mens standards and still get sponsors

Its holding womens skating back. They don't need to ever really push themselves when medicore is praise worthy for them

>>
>>2163468
>the majority who doing nothing of value still get praised more than a talented male.

Because talented males are a dime a dozen. When the talent pool for men is so huge just being technically proficient is not enough, it's one of the drawbacks of skateboarding being entirely male dominated.

Women on the other hand have all this room for improvement because for the most part they are new to street skateboarding. It's more exiting seeing them progress.
>>
>>2163500
>And instead are able to skate at a below average level by mens standards and still get sponsors

Why should they skate to "mens standards" when they are not men, they should skate to their standards, and let them have "pros" who push the envelope of what skateboarding is for women.

You act as if there are no gender divisions in basically every sport in the world.
>>
Anybody know how the fuck do you watch videos on the thrasher website? My Firefox can't display them, they just buffer endlessly, I don't understand.

Is there a way to rip them from the website? I tried DownThemAll but it did not work.

I'm trying to watch the new Welcome Fetish parts and the video for that new kid on Deathwish.

I know why its like this, but that's not justification for why it should stay like this.

Seeing the same mediocre trick done by a girl really isn't that exciting.

Hey,
I just started skating again for the first time since I was maybe 18/19 (22 now) and I'm having the same problem I used to have.

Basically I use my right foot for popping tricks, but I use my left foot to push, so my right foot ends up at the front of the board.

Should I bite the bullet and start learning to use my left foot for tricks or should I just carry on this way?
>>
>>2167409
Use your right foot to push, keep your left foot at the front

let me just correct you there for a moment; the women who have had sponsorships, besides the person who started meow skateboards and her early 90s part was horrible (but for which I don't know if she was even sponsored and that has nothing to do with my view of Meow skateboards, which is a GOOD THING), were all worthy.

Are you being ironic m8? You havin a fucking giggle there? I've been here from day one specifically for the skate threads and wrestling has been here the whole time, it just wasn't originally included in the boards title. But after much arguing about how its not an alternitive sport, it was changed from /asp/ - Alternative Sports, to /asp/ - Alternative Sports & Wrestling.

And yes it got worse with the constant threads for every stupid thought they have. But that doesn't change facts, wrestling threads have always been here.

Lying doesn't add credibility to the argument they don't belong on /asp/, stop doing it.
>>
If girls get more coverage in skateboarding, even if they're not at the same level as male pros, it will encourage more girls to get into the sport. If the number of girls skating increases then so will the skill level for female pros. You might see it as SJW feminist rubbish, but it's true. Affirmative action works in the long run. We all want to see better girl pros, but that's not going to happen over night.

Managed to break my wrist yesterday. Went to literally just roll into a ramp and instead of you know, letting my truck hit the coping before going in I just shifted my weight and threw myself to the ground.

I just came here for wrestling, but one question for you guys.

Are X Games still a thing? I remember watching those as a kid and they were a big deal, I wait for them every year. But some years later there was X Games Japan, X Games Brasil, X Games Austin, etc, etc... And it just lost it appeal.

How big is it now?

What exactly happens when you do a shuvit? what does your board do and where do your feet go? Read the OP skating really is 90% and 10% body. Think about where your board is going. If it's doing the right thing, then think about what your feet are doing. Always be mindful about everything. Trying constantly without thinking about whats going wrong means you'll never improve. Just think.

You know I was in the "women are far inferior skateboarders" camp and after reading all the posts in this thread I still sort of felt that way. But it seems kinda too coincidental that this teaser drops and looks pretty promising.

How many pro females skate street? What I specifically don't like about female skaters is they don't go as fast. What impresses me most about any skater is the speed/height of their tricks. Welcome's new vid had that girl but those two kids who shared a part looked way faster. Maybe it's the camera work?

I know she isn't going super fast, but 1. it is a teaser so who knows what else is in the vid. 2. Her technical ability seems to be pretty good as far as I can tell, and that's what impresses me the most. She's not doing basic stuff with no style she's got her own style and is doing stuff that is technically interesting.

>>
>>2168648
what? no falseflagger, though i know wrasslefags post shit all the time.
My point is that the high amount of /wwe/ related content has definitely displaced a lot of other alternative sports. You really don't see the same variety you used to, although the big ones are still here. they've been driven off, and if you removed the wwe stuff there likely wouldn't be enough attention to keep /asp/ afloat.

or hell, what do i know. maybe a containment board would be best. or maybe we are that containment board.

regardless, /asp/ is still quality, you just have to sort through extreme amounts of chaff. /esg/ is still great imo

You're just making shit up. That's based on next to nothing. Girls aren't stupid, they know men are going to give them more attention their skating abilities warrant when they post their lame footage to instagram and make a point of being a chick who skates.

Its a little trivial in the long, but its more interesting to discuss than "beginner here" or "should I get back into skating" types.

yeah. not sure that's a bad thing. i like a good spotlight. I get what you're driving at, and you could easily be right. i don't pay him much attention to be frank.

also agree with you on the chicks in skating.
Bufoni ran with the "hot skater babe" style and Baker runs with the "i'm maybe transgender mostly fighting stereotypes fighting against males in this sport and proving once & for all that it's for girls too!!!"

it's a new way to find "find your place" or some solidarity. in a more crowded world, it's easier to feel a sense of purpose and community when you're railing against something. Be it sexism or cultural marxism or whatever. i still don't really understand the need to "fight the power" all the time in everything you do.

But that's probably just because i'm too "ignorant" and don't "understand what it's like", because if anything in the world matters it a point of view that must be felt and not understood.

i like skateboarding!!

right, because he's all over teh media. Out of 99% of the pool of pros who give interviews, I 'd rather watch Richie talk. I don't care about "succesful business stories", I am not going to reach that, in fact, very few will. I 'd like a skater to talk about skateboarding.

Didn't say it was a bad thing. Some people need more motivation than just having fun. And I was just stating I believe Richie to be such a person

I try not to pay too much attention to Baker because her skatings boring. Source on this maybe transgender thing?

When do you ever see this outside of poser instahoes wearing thrasher and carrying penny boards? Any girl that can actually skate skates only because she loves to skate, just like dudes. There's no malice of conniving going on. The only time I see girls making a point about being a girl who skates is when they're trying to encourage other girls to get into skating which is a good thing. It's never about self promotion.
>>
>>2180892
>Your argument is women don't "deserve" sponsorship because you don't think so
I'm arguing they don't deserve it because they are generally held to a lower standard and produce mediocre skating as a result.
>You are not the almighty skateboard judge
I never claimed I was
>your opinion does not matter
Again I never claimed it matter anymore than a post on 4chan. Surely you are not arguing that we shouldn't discuss our opinions? And if so what makes your opinion that I shouldn't discuss mine, a valid opinion?
>your argument has no foundation
Have you been paying any attention? Its a generally accepted fact women are held to a lower standard in skating than men because of gender roles and that they are simply less represented in skating. Nobody has argued against this. And off that commonly accepted fact, I argued they should be held to higher standards because I believe they are capable of better. Sounds pretty founded to me.

>>2181017
>When do you ever see this outside of poser instahoes wearing thrasher and carrying penny boards?
All the time.
> Any girl that can actually skate skates only because she loves to skate, just like dudes
Never did I argue they don't enjoy it. But rather they know they can be praised for simpler crap than their male counterpoints would.
>There's no malice of conniving going on.
Malice? Again dude, not my argument.
>The only time I see girls making a point about being a girl who skates is when they're trying to encourage other girls to get into skating which is a good thing. It's never about self promotion.
I disagree, while they may intend to get more girls into skating as well. To say they have no intent on getting themselves promoted seems absurd.

we generally say that a person is motivated by attention seeking, as a negative trait. As in, they 're not doing something genuinely out of their need and joy, their ulterior motive is to get noticed. But honestly, we all like to get cheered on if we make something. It's part of being human and there's nothing wrong with that. Just because a person doesn't conform to the skateboarding norms doesn't make them pretentious. In fact, I think the opposite takes place. Skateboarding is supposed to be about personal styles.
Also, he simply states his opinions in interviews, where do you see attention seeking in that?

well it seemed kind of implied that you thought it was a bad thing. I don't really care about the whole thing but you don't seem genuine when you say that you made the comment without any sort of extra point behind it.

as for source on lacey baker, absolutely 0. complete and total speculation, don't spread that as fact or anything like it. but she seems to wear the tight sports bra (makes sense) and a chest-obscuring slouch. every transgendered person FtM that i've met did the same type of thing. again, could just be her having poor posture or a simple desire to appear "butch" or whatever is a kinder word for that. but she absolutely goes for a more androgynous, if not male style.

And I went on to clarify that was not my intent in doing so. I was stating that I disagree with the quote that "he only wants to do his own thing have his own fun", because I simply do not think his motivation ends there.
>Just because a person doesn't conform to the skateboarding norms doesn't make them pretentious.
Is that really what you think this is about? I wouldn't make the same comment about Nolan Johnson. He's skating seems a lot less footage driven for one thing, but is he any more normal? Certainly not.
>Also, he simply states his opinions in interviews, where do you see attention seeking in that?
Simply not true, the man's been prone to telling lies to create conversation and create further attention to his interviews. Like the somewhat recent quote about being against modifying spots.

As I was posting about the same time you posted that. I was stating that I disagree with the quote that "he only wants to do his own thing have his own fun", because I simply do not think his motivation ends there.

>as for source on lacey baker, absolutely 0. complete and total speculation, don't spread that as fact or anything like it. but she seems to wear the tight sports bra (makes sense) and a chest-obscuring slouch. every transgendered person FtM that i've met did the same type of thing. again, could just be her having poor posture or a simple desire to appear "butch" or whatever is a kinder word for that. but she absolutely goes for a more androgynous, if not male style.

>>2181383
>Like the somewhat recent quote about being against modifying spots.

dude, you 're either misinforming or didn't get the joke at all. He was being sarcastic about it. That's besides the point anyway, because even with waxed surfaces, it still looks cool. And the point he was making by sarcasm was that some of teh cool tricks on videos you see, aren't that innocent either.

About Nolan: you 're basically saying "it's ok to be NOT NORMAL, just keep it to yourself".
>>
>>2181405
>He was being sarcastic about it
No fucking shit. But Richie isn't an idiot, he knew many wouldn't get the joke and try to call him out on it. And they did, it was both humorous and disappointing at the same time and he got the attention he wanted from it.


>That's besides the point anyway, because even with waxed surfaces, it still looks cool
No, that's ironically enough, besides the point. We aren't discussing the merits of his trick

>About Nolan: you 're basically saying "it's ok to be NOT NORMAL, just keep it to yourself".
No I'm not, not at all. Nolan doesn't exactly keep it to himself. He just doesn't try to draw attention in the same way Richie does.

Because your post was unnecessary, it took some time for me to realise you literally had nothing to say besides, "nah". You didn't even have a point of view on why it mattered.

>Its also fine to say I think you're reading into it too much. You know like I did.
>just drew issue where there was none to start with,
Which brings me to my next point, I think you are very poor at discussing things amicably. Especially when disagreeing. I drew no issue with anything you said, and was never upset with your points. They clearly weren't offensive points of view, but you seemed to be pretty rhetorically defensive and insist on making blunt and uncompromising disagreements on everything. It's like talking to a door constantly slamming in your face. I wonder do you sometimes end up in arguments while agreeing with people?

I'm really not trying to be aggravating but I do hope you understand why people are continuing to "argue" and "take issue" with the things you say. It is not only what you say, but how you say it. It sucks but that is the way people work.

You are in 3 simultaneous disagreements with people on this thread as we speak. I have a couple friends like you so I'm really not bugging out. I mean you no harm. Ok I really have to finish my uni work so I have to go.

4. You will not worship profit.

5. You will not dress false garments.

6. You will vocally proclaim your love for the liberation of your Lord, Satan.

7. It's not what you do. It's where you go.

8. Skateboarding is permitted. Everywhere. Always.

Anyone had issues with Baker/Deathwish boards snapping easily? I'm pretty new so I've only been doing flatground stuff, and I've snapped two deathwish boards in three months. One snapped on the tail, and then I snapped another one on the nose this morning I've only been riding since December 28th.

Fell on my stomach after a riding over a twig today. Knee got bloody and hurt but I continued to skate for 30 minutes when I prob shouldn't have. Knee hurts abit when I put pressure on it but can still walk around normally, with some pain when jumping. Should I be worried?

I'm new, so I'm not landing bolts everytime I'm trying a new trick, but I did land on the nose, it was the first time I had landed like that on this board. I've landed like that several times on a toy machine I had before and it never cracked.

Not fat, I am however 6'3" 205lbs so I'm not a small person.

as with everything, practice. If you want a tip, I 'd say focus on rotating your waiste. I really don't know.
Keep the rotation steady and place your feet so that your front foot won't slide out. Eventually you 'll get comfortable.
It may look a little spazzy, but if you can keep it going then it looks impressive.

How do I stop being a pussy?
I can ollie as I high as I can jump, but only when I'm holding on to something.
I literally can't bring myself to try it rolling, like when your brain tells you no when you're gonna touch a hot stove or something.

How do I just do it?

just do it. do small ollies at first, then get them higher. pretty much just do a small jump and the board will follow. become one with your board

Well at least I'm not the only one who's had problems. I feel like if I were actually good and would have tried to land that same trick in to a manual it would have snapped in the same way.

any transition skaters here? how tight or loose do you skate your trucks?
i don't usually skate tranny, but i noticed i have trouble carving. i skate without a bottom washer and have my kingpin nut sticking out slightly. according to my friend, my trucks are tight. i have the regular thunders, the ones with the yellow bushings. could it be that they are harder than the white ones?
also, any tips on skating tranny? how do i get air?
>>
How would this help? Wouldn't it be better to jump in the deep end if confidence isn't an issue? Not doubting your advice, just wondering.

I have this problem when I try to Ollie. I sometimee land on the same position as I started and don't level out the board at all. The problem when I try to correct this is that I roll the board backwards when I try to pop. Sometimes I wont even get a pop, I just kick it behind me because I try to jump forward.

sweep your front foot up, no matter what you can't skip this step or it just won't work, struggled with that for a few months. POP down fast and jump simultaneously with the back foot while sliiiiding your front foot up the slide will bring the board up. at the top of your ollie just flatten your feet out and try to land bolts. if you slide that foot your board will stick right to your feet. feels good.

what the other guy said PLUS try to "come" forward, bring your whole weight towards the nose
takes some getting used to

Not that anon but I thought you were supposed to keep your weight centred over the board the whole time?

Asking because I always feel I can't level out the board enough unless I start opening up my hips and land shifted.

if you shift your weight, you will balance better over your board. This is what people mean when they say to level. btw this is an awesome picture, I think I 've told you before.

I couldn't stop laughing when I was typing that shit. It was too funny. Kid probably goes around telling people he did acid now. They were your typical loud mouth little kid who has to interject on everything being said.
