I hate being the worst guy in the skatepark, especially when it full of kids



I hate skateparks, especially indoor ones. I live no where near one. The nearest one to me is about 30 minutes away, and the other one is run by BMX kids now. And whenever I tried to skate one, I have the worse session ever. The environment doesn't feel right.
And kids in general are just good these days. Especially when they have the time to skate almost all day, every day, and they just focus on that. I wish I had that time. I know what you mean though when you skate around kids that are better than you.

They got time, mad energy and there fearless.

I usually try go early, get in a few hour before they all
turn up, then leave when the park gets rammed.

REAL since day one out today. just finished downloading gonna watch it in hd pretty excited
Apr 12, 2011 @ 00:03
That omnitech figure thing is a terrible idea. That's why skate, skate 2, and skate 3 exist. I lol'd at how they filmed that shit like an actual skating video. The guy looked so dumb holding that thing, and I can't believe they wasted time creating a mini skatepark.

i appreciate it man.

i don't really have a budget, but can a quality board be found around $150? I definitey want a quality board and one thats fast as I like to cruise around.

since i am very new to skateboarding, i don't really know what any of that means.

i heard to stay away from store complete boards, but IDK.
May 25, 2011 @ 14:54
also like i said, im almost 20 and 5'10 180 so I don't about sizes or anything.
May 25, 2011 @ 15:29
Store completes get a bad wrap i think it depends on the price and what you getting
some times the deals are good and you can skate them then and there.

If you you mainly wanna cruise you could look into a cruzer or long board the wheels
are bigger trucks higher and decks wider. I think there easier to control but
there mainly designed for cursing no tricks. You could get a regular skate board but
get slightly bigger wheels and wider deck there still cruzable and you can
do tricks easier.

Blank deck is a plain deck no design usually one colour there cheaper cause there plain
some are like half price of a normal one.

$150 you should be able too if shop around indi's are independent truck, ventures a
truck company as well. Speed comes down to wheels and bearings.

Sizing I ride a 7.75(width) if you can get to a skate shop go stand on a few boards to
see what feels right. You could measure your mongoose one for reference.

I'm far from an expert, buy yea hope that helps
