Yup, can post pics of tricks if you want

Here's my setup tho, first Zero board in 9 years(used to have a huge Zero/Fallen/Mystery phase back when i was 16)

Reason i got this is because the shop i went to didn't have any Girl 8'' wide in the shape i wanted
>>
>>721085387
Yeah post some pics man
Also i hear zeros are good boards i want to get the green one with zero written in electricity. I skate a solid 8 too only board that feels good on my feet

Well... Jamie Thomas sold Zero to Dwindle a couple of years ago and heard that Dwindle boards are pretty shitty(Almost/Blind/Cliche/Enjoi)

But so far i feel the board skates well but nothing beats an 8'' x 31.5'' Girl board with a nice mellow concave and a wide nose and tail

Nice man you must have been skating for awhile.
Ive never skated a girl board though but if you like a wide nose and tail i suggest you try 5boro decks a little pricey but theyre top of the line graphics are awesome and the quality of the wood is great
>>
>>721086616
Jeez thats high im stoked about to go to this diy park thats underneath a bridge tomorrow

Definitely will give a look if they happen to be at the next shop i'll buy my next board

For the time being i can't skate cause i don't have money to go to an indoor park

>>721086778
Another one, not as high, but it was my first session of last year, didn't skate during this whole winter
>>
>>721084681
I use to but I gave up for 2 reasons.
>it was too hard
>skateparks were always full with faggots and kids on scooters
>>
>>721087025
Yeah man where i live the only parks are free city parks that are mostly made by random people shit is awesome cuz you can smoke weed out there and no one cares
>>
>>721087055
I knocked a scooter kid off a ramp once kinda on purpose and his mom yelled at me shit was funny

That's a front blunt lol

But in all honesty it all boils down to practice and finding your own mental approach to how you do tricks... Sorry to not be of any help but the truth is skateboarding is like Pokemon, gotta catch em all tricks!
>>721086867
Thing is I don't even think i'm that good but i'm overly harsh on myself and an obsessive perfectionist
>>
>>721087358
Yeah that's another thing - parents everywhere. Fuck off and take your cunts kids someone else.
>>
>>721087366
I dont really skate with a competitive state in mind i mainly do what i think looks cool seeing others do certain tricks im good but id be alot better if i didnt fuck around so much
>>
>>721087473
Now i skate in the ghetto where parents are scared to take their kids and its just a bunch of cool dudes taking turns shredding things
>>
>>721087245
Hell yeah man, DIY's are always fun

Pretty much anything can be a skatespot, you just gotta have the eye and the skills to do something gnarly

Hell, i even skated a icepatch with some friends a couple of years ago

Yeah man you gotta have fun or else it turns into something frustrating

Keep on fucking around dude, i got alot of tricks i didn't think i would ever land just by fucking around

Whether it'd be no comply variations or skating a curb or trying to do something wack

Hell yeah man! Keep on keeping on dude!

Here's a crooked grind for you!
>>
I still cruise, hit the park on a nice day in the midwest. Started in 1988, Vision, Powell, h-street. Its cool seeing all the phases of skaing. Guys are so fucking good now, its really an entirely different art than it used to be. Flips in and out of grinds were things we didnt really take as a possibility.

Toy machine, ventures, spitfires

I've had a Shane O' Neil Skate Mental board a couple of years ago

If i remember correctly it was like a hummer fucking another car and the dude at the shop told me the board was called "fuck a car in the gas hole"

It was a great board but pretty much the only one i've skated

Here's a skate meme for a change
>>
>>721089057
Oh cool a skatemental i really wanted to get this board

Don't be hard on yourself, even fat dudes can be great, there really are alot of them out there

>Johnny Layton
>Bobby Worrest
>Ed Templeton
>Bob Reynolds
Dude is not sponsored but still can manage to pull out some nice shit
>Giovanni Reda
Photographer, he slimmed down tho but the dude still shreds

That's the ones i can quickly think on top of my head but yeah dude don't give up!

Stop being ignorant and go see for yourself

There's a dude in MTL that's a fucking texh wizard who got FAT AS FUCK

Dude could still pull out shits like switch bs tail bigspin out, believe me or not

Look up Eric Riedl and you'll end up finding some footy of him when he's at his fattest pulling out technical shit
>>
>>721090250
Eric Riedl at its fattest right there
https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=VrZoYdh0ubE

He's regular btw

Last line: switch flip bs tail, kickflip bs tail and then tre flip

Tech wizard*
Fucking shitty tactile screen

>>721090849
What the fuck are you trying to say? Stop all that babbling.
>>
Getting in shapes not that hard and you should do that anyways if you ever wanted to skate really good
>>
>>721091200
Keep digging your head in your ass further, I mentioned names and i even posted a JewTube link

If you're going to be a dick then go fuck yourself faggot
>>
used to
thinking of starting again because i low key miss that shit

but now nobody to skate with
>>
>>721084681
yah brah i can ollie up curbs now brah
>>
>>721092299
This, also I'm fat so I think I should lose weight first
>>
>>721092299
I'm the dude who posted all the skate pics ITT

I skate alone all the time, nothing better than skating alone to get as good as you want

Just put the time in it
>>
>>721092405
tfw still in great shape just would feel really awkward being like "hey anyone wana go skate" when im not like, 16 anymore.
and im way too out of practice.
i don't wana be the one annoying guy who cant do anything
>>
>>721092299
Yeah thats my biggest problem
>>
>>721092582
tried skating alone but meh
cant find the motivation unless its with others really.
ill always get bored pretty quickly
>>
>>721092596
Im OP im only 18 and i usually skate alone but all the dudes i do skate with are like mid 20s i see more adults skating than teenagers these days nothing wrong with it
>>
>>721092596
Yeah, I'm 22 I think it would be awkward. If I get back into it I might just cruise.
>>
I'm a fruit booter

>>
Hell yeah
Ive got an 8.25 Creature deck with 8 inch indeies bones reds 53mm wheels and shake junt grip
Started skating when i was 11 but i stopped at 13 and didnt start again until i was 23
>>
>>721092837
yea for sure, but anyone who has kept on skating that long is gonna be way better than me, and even if they dont mind me fucking sucking, its good to have people your own skill level.
>>721092844
if i got back into it honestly i would still go for tricks and stuff but i wouldn't be pushing myself that hard.
i have too much other shit going on these days to risk getting fucked up trying something massive
>>

OP here user to have two pairs of razors i used to grind the rails at the park and everything quit after my neighbor moved he was a pro he could do everything https://youtu.be/qF-vbDMkRt0 heres my friends when my teenage park was still open
>>
>>721093447
I just got back into it after a 12 year hiatus. feelsgoodman
>>
>>721093676
Ive been considering it just dont have $200 for a pair of skates also its pretty dead ive seen like 1 person doing it since i quit
>>
>>721093786
I actually got lucky as fuck. Razors accidentally sent my buddy 2 pairs of completes for the price of one. He gave me the 2nd set for free since he doesn't know anyone else who blades. Only reason I'm back in it
>>
melbourne best city for skating
thats all i came here to say
>>
I'm 37 now and used to skate up until I postulated 2 discs in lower back. Can still skate but the compression on my lower back is a nightmare.

Still like to cruise through the skate park and bust out some primo flip to primo then 360 flip out . . . then ride on, kids jaws drop.
