I just recently got back into skating after a year or two break.
Never really did get too good, but it's fun as fuck.

This is from today.



Yo that's pretty dope!

Idk why nobody in this thread has meantioned A Happy Medium/A Happy Medium 2. Hands down the greatest skate video you'll ever see, visually and sonically.
two very underrated videos.

anyone got tips on how to learn stuff switch?

i learned how to ollie the opposite way that I push (learned em stationary the wrong way many years ago) and it's really annoying haha


I had the same problem, best advice I could give is just learn to push the other way as opposed to trying to ollie with the opposite foot, you'll get comfortable pushing switch WAY sooner than learning how to effectively ollie switch

All I do is smoke weed and listen to MF DOOM innercitykidsmusic.com

I gotta try this out. I've never taken the time to really try switch cause it feels so uncomfortable. Thanks!

just get a half decent set up and start rolling around the streets/parks, your other sports will soon become obsolete as the skating bug takes over, enjoy

Cruisers are great to just fuck around on. I'm planning on putting together a Krooked Zip-Zinger soon. Those Vinyl cruisers are way too small for me. I still want to be able to pop a good ollie on one.

A little bit more expensive than the stereo vinyl but the Penny's have better wheels, so its worth it.

I play tennis about 4-5 times a week, one of those days actually being a league match. I try to play soccer whenever I get the chance, which is probably about 1 ever other week (depends on my schedule).
I don't skate as much anymore. Between school, work, and other sports, I skate maybe once or twice a week if I'm lucky to fit it in. I haven't been on a board in a month. About to take a trip out to the Philippines, so hopefully I can get some good skating done out there at some cool spots.

Just got the Stereo Vinyl Cruiser. Changed the bearings to some Bones Reds.

This is my first time skating. Fell once while riding around town. I think my foot placement is fucked up because I can't control my direction.

Any tips? I'm liking it a lot so far.
