See, I'm torn. Because on one hand I love watching longboarders fall, but, on the other, I will never side with a car driver, soooooo

It's a known fact that the further you run from the point of impact the less it will hurt when the adrenaline fades. Also laughing to show ya boys you're okay lessens the ego damage

Thanks, this really helps answer my question and not make you look like a prick at all.

Hope you wear a helmet on your future scooter in case the next joke doesn't go right over your head

Also, just to spam some more BMX into this thread, but this is just plain mad:

My days of giving a poo poo if people ride skateboards/bikes/rollerblades/scooters (yes, even scooters) are far in my past. If you're willing to huck yourself down stairs on a fancy version of child's toy, you're cool with me.

I always skated 7.5-7.75 decks (preferred 7.75) back when I was skating a ton back in jr/sr high, but I've always been a smaller dude. I got an 8 when I was getting back into it after college and it always felt massive. That board got stolen a few years ago and I keep meaning to get another, so I'll probably go back to 7.75.

Anytime I've ridden a longboard I find myself getting extremely annoyed by not being able to pop ollies up little stuff or lift my nose up to drop off curb.


Also, who else grew up building ramps with zero knowledge of how they were supposed to be built? It was a big day in my friend group when we realized that you're not supposed to build a 4ft quartpipe that goes from flat to completely vertical. Might as well just be skating straight into a wall. I think one guy managed to "drop in" on it maaaaybe 3x and he was god of the group for it.

^that account's sick.

Lol also, nothing better than building a way too steep kicker that's roughly 1.5x as wide as your skateboard, so hitting it anything less than perfect means digging your truck into the wood and sending yourself flying.

So, minus a brief stint post college, I haven't seriously skated since high school. Would I be a mega poser if I wanted to get a couple of my favorite decks to hang on the wall once I move into a new apartment in the coming weeks? If it helps, I can still ollie!

You're right, I should put together a new board to ride AND get some decks to display. You've talked me into it

XIII
Feb 11, 2009


I don't think there's anything wrong with going all in on your board and/or shoes. If it makes you excited to skate more, then it is cool and good.

Ninja edit: also, all that stuff looks rad, so that helps

my 6 year old son got fascinated with skateboarding so i bought him a lovely deck just to let him fart around with. had a few to drink the other night and stepped on it for the first time in 23 years. landed an ollie and was stoked (he thought it was the coolest thing and i'm still the coolest dad) and quit while i was ahead.

This rules

Every time I watch Rodney Mullen speak, I understand how he basically invented modern skateboarding
