I suck at skating. Last time I tried I hurt a little kid a full block away, no joke. Fucked up somehow, saved myself from eating shit, the board rocket off at ten billion miles an hour right into some poor unsuspecting little girls shin down the street. I tried apologizing but the mother couldnt speak english. i felt so bad..

All my boyhood THPS dreams died long ago.
I'll stick with driving, I seem to be pretty good at that. Top ten times at nearby kart tracks (despite weighing 220lbs, comparable times were from drivers between 130-170) and no accidents in 6 cars 10 years of driving, more if you can stretch ATVs into "driving"...

OP here.
Just a disclaimer, I started skating a few years ago, pretty much the end of Junior year in highschool. I dropped it to have more time to focus on studies because I can't fucking multitask for shit. Just started again about 3 days ago, found this board in a friends shed and he said I could have it. its definitely an old board and I'm thinking about replacing it. Any pointers as to what deck/trucks/wheels I should get? I like my decks on the skinny side.
>>
Got these as a steal from eBay
Might have to wait for the spring to learn how to use these shits
>>
Alright lads, skater newfag here, but just after some advice. How would you reccommend learning ollies while moving? only really just got into it and yet every time I try while moving I seem to lean back too much and the board just sods off from underneath me. How should I stop this?

>>
>>590540097
watch other people skate. watch slow mo skate videos.

Footwork is key. Balance and board control is also key.

Learn to push and skate really fast, weave in and out of things, "tic tac-ing" and manuals.

Then once you really have no problem with balance you cant try ollies.

Yo lemme tell you a lil sumn about riding on the skinny side. I started out riding 7.75 and rode that for years. I moved and became friends with a local fella who has his own brand and has skateboards made and everything. Said friend also has a concrete miniramp he built in his backyard. I bought a board from him, an 8.5. It was a huuuuuuuuuuge step up, but once I got used to it it was good because I was doing a lot of vert skating. The board I just got is an 8.25. I've had other 8.25s on previous occasions and have found that the 8.25 is a good size for skating street as well as vert since its size somewhat in the middle.

>>590539591

Are there femanon skaters? Not trying to imply anything. Most of the skaters I know are pretty nice kids, but they are that-- teenagers. Oldfags on skateboards seem a bit weird. Or not? Educate me /b/. Oh, if an adult can make money doing it, comment withdrawn.

>>
>>590541573
That anon you quoted gave some solid advice. I had a friend that had a ton of trouble learning to ollie, he worked manuals for balance. He got pretty obsessed with it and now manuals like a machine. His ollies came eventually and he almost always lands in a manual.

Keep at it anon, and if it makes you feel better I was landing 360 flips way before I could land an ollie. I have no explanation for that

Here's a question for you.

If you were a probationer officer or a teacher or something like that and had to try and connect with a 12-13 year old skater, what would be your approach be?

If had best luck by just showing respect. ANy other suggestions?

Location is a big deal for a lot of people. What's funny to me is that i've been skating the same spots for 25 years and still see the same people. There's a skate shop about 30min away that has various theme days each month, old school nights are awesome, lots of older skaters and younger skaters having a blast together, exchanging tips, stories etc. I feel bad that it sounds like this doesn't happen enough that similar events haven't been mentioned itt

Did you purposely buy the wrong wheels? Or is this a "Cruiser"
>>
>>590546040
Show an interest in their interest. Maybe check out the history of skateboarding just so you have a better understanding of the topic. Try seeing if anyone local went on to become popular in the skating world. Lastly, if possible provide a place to skate, and if you do give a laminated copy of a letter stating that the skater has permission to be there. Make sure they keep that letter with them when they go.

How will these help him? He's dealing with troubled kids. Mullen's TED talk is interesting and kinda dips into the community aspect of skating. But this won't help him connect with the kids.

It will help with understanding the mentality that comes with skating. With that understanding, he can empathize with the kids, share the same mindset. Put himself in their shoes for lack of a better phrase.

I hear ya, luckily one of my friend's dad owned a lot of properties and he let us skate on all of them in specific areas. There's a guy that owns a deli up the street from me that did the same for local skaters since they kept him in business for his first few years. As a kid I never had a problem asking around for permission, I think a lot of skaters don't look at it that way which is a shame. It's always better to skate legally. The local police in my area always come out to the skate parks and talk with everyone and we all get along great. If course it took a long time to get there but it was worth it. Unfortunately, two towns over skating is a crime. If you're seen even walking with a deck in hand you're getting thrown in the back of a cruiser, deck confiscated, mandatory fine and community service for 6 months. We've been working on changing that for a long time.

Mentality. That's the thing I'm trying to get. So far I see that they respect friends and talent. They don't dis beginners. And they stick together and look out for one another. They've already got a lot of the qualities I try to teach.

Check your local skating laws if there are any. Also find the nearest skate park, that's where you're more likely to meet other skaters that just want to skate and not have a negative stereotype attached to them. Probably find some businesses sympathetic to the lack of places to skate as well.

>>590550009
Exactly. People who skate are usually genuine. Helping each other grow, improve their skills and skating is an outlet that allows them to do so. Its an activity that has limitless goals. The possibility of being able to overcome any challenge. Skating is a way of life for a lot of people. Age isn't much of a factor since you make a decision as soon as you pick up your first board or even watch someone skate for the first time. A decision to get on a see where it takes you. That's something that stays with you for life.

I understand, when I started the closest skate park was 2hrs away. Didn't make it there until I had been skating for 10+ years and you're damn right it was the first place I went when I got my license. Also, none of us had rides anywhere either, we had to skate to wherever we wanted to skate. It took many years and a lot of time and effort from many people to get my area's skaters hooked up. Regarding the safe zone, i'd leave it be unless it seems like they would want you to come check it out.

Set them up with a legit way to earn some money and some pride about it?
They could get all the shit they want with a job since they don't have bills. I got my first job at 14, bought a car because driving was my thing, was extra careful to drive by the books to work/school til I had a full license, spent what didn't go to gas and lunch on helping my family with groceries and such, my girlfriend and stupid shit that gave me a giggle... And occasionally ditch weed, but not wanting to fuck up what I'd earned kept me incredibly discreet and free of desires to cause any trouble. I could afford fun OR trouble. but not both.

Course I was always a little different anyway, bright but lazy, fairly introverted probably just from being bitter about everyone else having stable families and finances and getting shit handed to them constantly... But I had cool shit to show those who I spent my time with. Gaming shit mostly, I found out about emulation and force feedback wheels and hifi audio around then, bought a nice pair of Sennheisers and a really cool media player with awesome Audio hardware that played every format I ever found and a touchscreen and 8 hours of video/30 audio before the iPod touch was a thing.. I had a new laptop, a neat wheel controller that had motors to kick, slip and fight you back for Gran Turismo 4, I bought 3 wiis on launch night and sold 2 for a few hundred in profit on ebay, and I usually had at least a half tank of gas and some money to see a movie or take friends/family out to eat.

The experience from Which all helped immensely when I found myself moving out a week after my 17th birthday. Not kicked out, I did it to help my family and soon to be wife after shit in her life hit the fan...

Sorry if none of this is helpful, just where my mind went, and I imagine these kids might have similar feelings or life experience I did.

As far as creating artwork? Not huge, most kids are too busy smoking weed, skating and fucking up to actually put some effort into art. If you're dealing with a kid that has even a slight interest in it, tell them to practice the shit out of it. Great stress relief and it's just cool as fuck to get your mind vomited out on some paper, wood, cement, or whatever.

Longboarding is definitely easier to pick up than just straight up skateboarding. If you want to get into that just get a nice hefty board and go at it in some suburbs. As for skating I have no advice, never really got into it as there weren't any skaters where I grew up.

I didn't want kids from some frustrating experiences in caring for younger cousins, and was smart enough to know it would fuck my shit up HARD if it happened. Opted for spermicide suppositories and pulling out because we hated condoms and were each others first.. Developing sexual urges early really sucks.
