i just started sk8in bout 1 month ago, in your opinion what tricks are best for begginners to learn. thanks

Ollies, moving ollies, shovits and pop-shovits(FS or BS. I personally prefer BS), and manuals.

Then when u think ur ready, move up to flip tricks. Kickflips(don't get frustrated learning these, every skater knows they were hard as FUCK first learning them), heelflips, varials.

Yea.

This is so true. Kickflips will take you forever to learn. It's one of those tricks you'll get so close to getting, but always fuck up a little bit for a while until you finally get it. Then after that, varial flips and heelflips come easy.

Yeah varial heels look good, but IMO varial flips just look pretty sloppy.
Jul 16, 2009 @ 10:23
well eff you guys i happen to like varial flips

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

depends on who is doing them...I have seen some clean varials in my time...And i find it funny that, the common good skater can tre flip like nothing, but can't 360 heelflip for shit.
Jul 16, 2009 @ 16:27
Yeah don't get me wrong i have seen a few people pull them off nicely but i dunno how to explain it i just don't like the look of them. I'd rather see/do a tre flip or just a kickflip anyday.

Edit: Yeah you don't really see many people doing laser flips, i guess it's cos a lot of people find front 360 shuvs harder than back 360's. I certainly do anyway.
Jul 16, 2009 @ 17:21
^they'll come in due time...I came really close to landing one two sundays back in a game of skate...I'm just not eager-ed to practice them..I will be soon though, very soon.
Jul 16, 2009 @ 17:51
i might start up boarding again. whats a good set-up for a beginner? i've been muckin about on a friends board and i'm effectively back to basics lol
Jul 16, 2009 @ 17:57
7.75 to 7.8 deck....Everybody seems to like girls so maybe start with that...trucks, royals....for wheels 52mm...But it would a lot easier to just ask your local skateshop clerks.
Jul 17, 2009 @ 01:35
yeah word ^ that's a perfect setup, i would swap the royals for indy's though

Oh my god, Mike Vallely's battle commander was gnar as FUCK

All I do is smoke weed, blow lines, and listen to MF DOOM. And rap. http://www.facebook.com/SpacemanNYC

Jul 25, 2009 @ 22:57
^YES...just seen it...Man, his fashion/look went through a transformation, his style is epic. And damn this guy jams with no muccchhh power. Def the man. And that song was effin ill.
Jul 26, 2009 @ 03:00
^ it was better than what i expected but i still think hes time for skatin is done
Jul 26, 2009 @ 15:31
^ how is his time for skating done? He skates because he loves to skate and its fun.. The whole point behind it, he also hasnt lost any touch on his skating, thats why people like him because he has that style of skating! Also video the commander video was sick!

varial heels kickass though
Jul 26, 2009 @ 19:48
if you watched his game of skate against chris cole youd know he has lost touch on skating, thats why he wanted to play with his tricks because he would have most likley gotten blacked out playing with actual tricks, and all the tricks in his battle comander are basically all the tricks he can do. and just because skatings fun and he loves it doesnt make him good i know plenty of people like that but they still suck and have no sponsors and are going nowhere in skating

Wow, wtf...This was a complete waste...Anywho, Mike V always skated the way he does and some of the shit he was doing in that BC berrics vid, no one can do. Its his style and he has been committing to it's growth throughout his career. Mike V already stated once before he is not too swell with flip tricks at all, its not him. Respect him as a unique skater, just because he doesn't do the technical shit that's in now doesn't mean he is losing his touch, he never was a "technical skater" to begin with.
