It's okay to watch child porn if you don't touch your dick, just raises awareness man.



I assume it's an Instagram influencer thing. It looks like trash and dumb as hell. Who started this bullshit?

I have come to discourse on the profound inequities of the American political system.



When I was a kid, everyone rode goofy even though virtually everyone was regular with like one kid being the exception.

also I stopped riding a skateboard when I got a bike and realized that pushing up hills is way easier with mechanical leverage, bitch

Riding a bike sucks because there's a bunch of dumb poo poo you can get tangled up in if you fall down. Skating just leaves you to fall into the void if you gently caress up.

Skating leads you to literally dying because of a tiny little pebble on the ground.

I tried skating and learned to push and do little ollies and it was really fun, but there's nowhere really for me to actually skate here unless you like carving insanely cooked sidewalks. I probs should get a longboard tbh

I just bought this bad boy so this thread is relevant to me. I ride with my front foot sometimes forward a bit because shifting feet around is tricky as a noob :(




I am 35 and the last time I rode a skateboard was when iwas like 9 and i fell off and never touched one since.

I love snowboarding and have done so for 15 years but im currently in COVID lockdown during snow season so i am now running laps in my underground car park and trying not to die.

Started long boarding last year and I tended to put my front foot forward at first. In the videos I watch where they do really fast downhill boarding, it looks like an optimal position for being aerodynamic, but they also lean their whole body forward and put their back foot at an odd sort of angle.

I don't think it makes much sense if you're just cruising, but as long as you're having fun and don't hurt yourself, who cares

Not skateboarding turned me gay, which was wonderful, and continuing to not skateboard returned me to straightness. Folks don't let your kids not skateboard if skateboarding isn't for them.

So I roll with a rolling thunder
And I howl with the howling wind
And I drift downstream for as long as it takes
To get up and around the bend

Skateboarding owns, although not as much as snowboarding.

I'm really confused about what the OP means though, both feet forward? Like, does that mean at different times like someone is skating regular/switch? Or do they mean feet POINTING forwards, kind of a stylie longboard stance? Or do they mean both feet exactly together and pointing forwards like a hang 10? It's really quite a mystery (why OP is so illiterate)

I've decided that everyone should push mongo while they are skating switch. That way it's easier for the spectator to tell that they get extra points for that trick

The house I lived at as a kid had a really nice, large sledding hill, one you could get some real good use out of, but when I grew up there in the early-mid 90's snowboarding even in places where skiing was popular didn't really seem accessible for whatever reason, but we made due by standing on plastic sleds and wiping out on those instead. I've often thought that if I had a shot at it I could still get on a board and muscle memory itself might be enough. Luckily I've been able to talk myself down from that.

are you talking about like a directional stance vs. a duck footed stance? it's all just preference.

pretty much. speed stance is meant for speed. with your back leg tucked you can face your center of gravity directly downhill rather than horizontally for extra control. it's way more comfortable to hold a speed stance than it is to squat and look sideways for a 3+ minute run so there's that too
