Skateboarding

What do you think of skateboarding? Skateboarders? I'm thinking of trying skating, I'd like to expand my horizons and try something new besides soccer and playing xbox.

  • It's fun. It's not too popular here, but I own a board and use it occasionally. You can get pretty screwed up doing different tricks if you're not careful, though. If you Snowboard it makes learning a lot easier.

  • I used to skate. I found it insanely hard though, I managed to ollie and pop shuv-it (badly) but couldn't do anything else. Part of it is bravery, telling yourself your ankle won't snap when you try and land, so you just do it. The rest is dedication and motivation, which I struggled with when all my friends were dropping in and attempting 360 flips whilst I was still trying to ollie higher.

  • It seems cool, and playing SKATE. opened my eyes to the culture surrounding it. I wouldn't try it though: too many hills in my hometown in all the wrong places.

  • I used to skate, but I sold my board and quit a few months ago because there's just nowhere in town worth skating.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ROFL Wolf1254 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Murcielago00 My feet are the same size and I've been skating since I was 5. Some twenty years now. If you are learning it just to cruise around (no tricks), I'd recommend a long board. They're better for cruising and have a "surfing on land" feel to it.[/quote] Wow, sounds like you've got a lot of expierience! And I am hoping to learn skating to do tricks and a bit of cruising, around here mostly everyone who skates just gets a longboard (Most of them live beachside, it's common for them) [/quote] Yep. In high school I was all about dem tricks. But some pretty nasty falls during and after college, and now I just ride around. I'm nowhere near the level of a professional skater, so for me as I am now, I see no reason for me to be doing tricks. I just love getting on it and cruising down the street. And I have my dog pull me on it now.

  • It's fun and is good practice if you want to get into snowboarding. Plus, it's a good mode of transport if you're too young for a vehicle.

  • Cool bro. Skateboarding is really run after you learn your first few tricks.For me that was Pop shuvit,boneless,ollie, and kickflip.
