The skateboard thread

Because I think we're confusing all the non skaters in the "What made you happy?" thread. So here's a thread for all things skateboard

I just bought a slalom set up... because dodging cones makes you a better person

Re: The skateboard thread

nice! im getting a landyachtz switchblade with bones super swiss 6 bearings and i havent really decided on wheels yet for it for a multipurpose setup that can handle a little of everything, i just cant decide on wheels that will be good enough to do a little downhill and some freestyle/slides, it seems you cant get a really well balanced wheel that can handle them both relatively well any ideas?

Cult classics... they get drifty as hell over 30mph but they have a really nice slide and are cheap to boot.

Re: The skateboard thread

The springiness really throws you for a loop at first. So much flex in the board, which is great for carving obviously, but feels really weird at first when pushing. My roommate had a rigid longboard though, and that felt more normal, but I think the best bet would be to just adapt to the newer style flexy and low ones.

I'm not a fan of Otang, I've never managed to find one of their wheels that felt nice going sideways. It's the same thane as the Baluts, and I know a lot of people who said they were icy and chattery. Otangs are way over priced though.

Wide trucks, softer wheels and longer wheel bases make them more stable and forgiving at speed, but don't get a flexy board... they feel like a trampoline as soon as you get any speed up. There are loads of short wheel base top mounts with a ollie-able kick tail to make the transition easy as anything.

Re: The skateboard thread

you know id buy one of those tomorrow and cruise around everywhere on it, not even learning tricks, if the roads and shit were even remotely designed to accomodate them

when i used to skate when i was younger i always thought it would be a thousand times better in america

I know that feeling. Much of my city nearby hill, with beautifull slopes, which has been marked as a protected zone, thus car free, is laid in FUCKING cobblestone and granite "kaldrma". City i live in is dead flat. Local hill has some roads, but you have to slalom among bathtub sized holes.

Shipping is more than board alone, and sometimes they slap you with import tax. Still, i love each second i manage to get on a board.

Re: The skateboard thread

I'm lucky, we have a lot of different terrain near me... incuding one of the best slide hills in the uk about an hours drive away.

Here's a picture of todays skateboarding antics... I have decided that hard wheel sliding is the new black

Re: The skateboard thread

Isn't it easier to do a triple or double kickflip, rather than a single kickflip?

It's like when I use to rollerblade it would be easier to do a 540 down a larger set of stairs than a 180 because you could control the pace of the trick more, even though it was 'harder'.
