I haven't skated since I was a kid and now I'm 18. I'm planning on joining the Coast Guard and trying to get stationed in California and learning to skate again. Do any of you guys know who Danny Duncan is? His videos made me want to skate again.

They got good shoes, really tough suede material.
My favorite right now is Wes Kremer pro model.

>>777584
I skate them, skating the coles now, i've used the Mikey Taylor's as well. Good shoes, they are pretty cheap on DC's website, you can get some quality shoes for pretty good prices.

>>777599
I just stepped it up to a 8.125 from a 7.75. Honestly it's not much difference, idk what you exactly mean by 'tech' but if you are asking if you can still flip it then yes you can.
>>
>>778039
Have you noticed any improvement in your balance?
>>
>>778168
Yes, especially at higher speeds, gives me more room to stand. I felt that the 7.75 was just too thin when I was trying to go faster and kind of didn't provide enough room for me. It's all preference though, you can always stand on a board at a skate shop, or try someone else's

Bros im looking for a part I saw years ago when I started skating (like 4 or 5 years ago)

Spitfire classics, reds bearings, independent trucks, all going for $100 from my local skate shop, I used to ride a bit when I was like 12-13 but I'm 18 now and I can't be scootering around everywhere anymore since I switched to that after originally skateboarding. Another note, I found this deck on my way home one day with nothing on it.

Guy Mariano is on Nike. Nike acquires another "asset". Reading any Slap, /esg/? Someone in there said that Nike is aiming to monopolise the shoe game (the big money is in there) and leaving all the actual skateboard brands to produce hard goods (i.e. decks, trucks etc.). I will add, until Nike can make specil agreements with those companies - all skateboard companies. Will you let it happen /esg/?

don't give up m8. It took me 7 years to get sponsored the first time. Then that company went bankrupt a year later and I've only been recently sponsored again. (about 11 years after I started).

Nike know nobody will every take their boards serious if they manufacture them so stick to shoes as shoes are easier for them to sell.

Does anybody else get "withdraws" from not skating?
I'm not talking about some "hurr skating is life, i get sad if I don't skate" type of deal either.
I usually skate every day, and if I'm not skating that day I'll at least go for a walk or jog. Sometimes though I'll fall too much and be too sore to do anything the next day except sit around.
The problem is when I just sit around all day it, around night time I'll feel like I stood up too quick, but this'll last for hours.
I'll be light headed the whole time, spaced out when it peaks for about 10 minutes, and just feel like shit. It's almost like greening out on weed, but I don't smoke and I'll be sober when it happens, and I'm usually sober most of the time.
I think it's just from being super active all the time she then suddenly doing nothing but sit on my ass all day, plus my body is healing too but I wanted to see if anybody else has the same thing?
TL;DR anybody else feel physically fucked up when they don't skate?
>>
>>780822
Because vans are shit quality and only sell because they have the elitist old school vert appeal, and look cool to non skaters. I don't know if they use to be good quality in the 80's but now they're flimsy pieces of shit.

I used to get really bad "panic attacks" (undiagnosed and it was from doing bad drugs so it might have actually been hysteria). I wouldn't say I'm anxious but I am really hyper 90%of the time, and have to be doing something otherwise Im uncomfortable. I do sometimes get nervous about dying and shit though, but I think that's normal.
>>
>>782383
>it might have actually been hysteria

I don't think hysteria manifests itself as panic attacks. Yes, I know what you are referring to. Must be some form of flashbacks/psychedelia. Could be worse if you ask me.

A part just means a certain skaters spot in a skate video.
It's the same as saying "that part with Michael Cera in 'This is the End,' except the skaters usually only involves them and nobody else for a few minutes.
Dumb faggots completely misused the term though and will use it to mean any skate video by a skater with music behind it.

I'll try again later with slightly different methods for each bearing and not put them in the wheel and test them out in the morning to see which works

This video explains all the ollie 180's, since im too lazy to type it all. If you kick back, it's a backside shuv-it, also known as just the "the shuv-it" a frontside pop shuv you kick in front of you, if that makes any sense?

That isn't me lol, although that would be great. My parents don't really give a fuck about skating. I'm also a year younger than the guy that you're thinking of.
