Got a new deck, bad razor tail on the last one.

Program is a little side project from the guys at Welcome.
Deck is rock solid as expected, being crafted by the wizard of wood, Professor Paul Schmitt.

I always wanted to try skating but I'm way too scared

we have a couple of beat-up boards under the stairs at my house but even if I put one foot on it, I freak the fuck out

what's the best way to learn & get over the fear?

should I get elbow pads & knee pads?

Is 25 too old to even bother starting?

Thanks.
>>
>>750779
I started at 25

helps if you skated before, even a little to be completely honest, but still.

The way to overcome fear is stoke; feel what you want to do, what will make you go "fuck yeah, I pulled that off". Doesn't have to be dangerous, it just has to be you. At the end of the day wear pads if you 're paralysed by fear.

And a beat up board is better than nothing. I stopped skating for 3 weeks because I thought I needed a change of trucks. After 3 weeks of isolation the board looked brand new to me.
>>
>>749791
? You never need risers unless you're a little bitch who likes to longboard. I'm assuming you're a beginner. Also please tell me you haven't completed your purchase yet

what new developments? I'm from the same town the core kids from Welcome live in, and I see them frequently at the local hangouts and parks, it's pretty neat. Didn't hear about any new developments though

define core. I 'm talking about Mango, Nolan, Erick. then ask them and then report back in /esg/

bumping real thread
>>
>>750853
yeah, mango, aaron goure, johnathan pierce, etc. don't know who else lives in AZ but those are the main ones i can think of. what's happening with welcome? im not going to ask them irl because that's autistic "hey i liked your part in It's a Secret, tell me about the politics of your skateboard company" wtf
>>
>>751285
it's not like they are superstars, jsut approach, be gentle and try to find out why so many people left Welcome.
>>
>>751285
>>752010

All the original team with the exception of Daniel Vargas quit/got replaced. I heard it was due to constant fights with the owner who is an asshole. Mango, Lara and Jalba went to live in NY and now ride for Olson, all the Seattle dudes are doing whatever.

...on the plus side, Alex Perelson quit Real and now rides for Welcome.

Just out of curiosity I asked from one of the guys in the skatepark to do a backside ollie with his board, which is a trick I 'm currently learning. His board was 8.5 with 149 trucks and great grip, mine is 80 with 129s and shit grip.
The board would turn with my body, what a great feeling! I didn't even have to pop them that high and I didn't even toedrag. It felt like cheating. My term with the thin board will prove valuable once I cope biggger trucks.

I started like a week ago and I'm 19. Honestly you just have to be okay with falling. Everybody falls, just laugh it off. The only people that give you shit for falling are cunts and non-skateboarders, and you shouldn't give a shit about their opinions.

I love falling, I laugh my ass off everytime I eat shit
>>
>>754992
this guy gets it, if a skater sees another skate bail they'll just ask if they are alright. Only pricks make fun of you for slipping out
