I also skate everyday. I have a 7.75 boardwise brand deck

STP trucks (Got them free from boardwise)

Mini-logo wheels (Also got them free from boardwise)

A mix of bearings, i just replace them when i need to

 

Skateboading in Glasgow is really cool. Once you stop thinking about wether or not theres gunna be a group of neds around every corner, you start to see some of the places we've been blessed with by the east dumbartonshire council. There are alot of good spots and a few parks here and there. I have been skating since i was like 10-11 and i love it. I won't post a trick list, i dont like bragging and sh*t, thats not what skatings about

I got bored myself and just felt like posting the list smile.gif. No bragging intended.

 

Looking at Youtube comments for homemade skate vids are painful. Most of the time the videos I see are kids having a good time doing what they love, and then you get the big headed guys that come in and say "OMG YOU SUCK I CAN DO BETTER SWITCH BLAH BLAH"

I need a new trick to learn. I was trying to find a way of doing a 1 footed railflip where you have the griptape facing away from you so your toes are just hanging off the end of the wheel, place your foot slightly to the left (Or right) of the wheel closer to the concave so it's in a like manual position(provides a bit of air) and then jump, flicking the one foot as hard as you can backwards so it does a kickflip under you.

 

I can get the flip, but the board, as you'd expect, just goes flying out behind me when i kick. It's starting to get to me coz i can't think of any other way it could be possible to do.

I didn't mean to offend or anything when i said that thats not what skating was about, skatings what you make it and if some skate to be better than others or just so they can brag then i accept that because thats what they love the sport for. I just generally like it and i would like to be able to go and skate everything with my eyes closed, but i can't. One day i would love to make a life out of the sport, but my chances are very small. This however doesnt put me off, as long as i can skate for a long while to come then im alllllllllrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiigggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhtttttttttt.

Off to the skateshop tomorrow to get a new board FINALLY! I have 80 quid in my bank at the moment, so opefully i'll be able to get something good with that. I think i'll just get the deck coz i've got a pair of venture trucks at some rubber wheels (really f*cking quiet = night skating)

 

I feel like getting an Element bvoard, probably because i'm using them for my technology coursework at school. Still not a clue what to get though. I want a kinda hybrid between a freestyle and normal board, but not one of those frewaky ones with a square kicker and pointy nose.

 

lmao, i have to get this graphic!

I havnt skated since about November. I either just plain can't be arsed or school work has gotten in the way. It's usually the second then followed by the first becuase all i want to do after working is sleep.

 

My technology project at school for the past 6 months has been a skate ramp for finger skateboards. so my love for boarding hasn't died.

 

In fact, here it is about 4 weeks ago..

Haha, dude, I love fingerboards, and good job on it, I made one in 8th grade for woodshop class. I got an A on it, what'd you get on yours? I'd expect A+ 'cause even a month ago, it looked pretty damn awesome.

haven't finished yet. Still have until the end of the Easter holidays (Beginning of April some time) before it has to be handed in. Then it'll eb a few months wait for it all to be marked and such.

 

I'll let you know though.

 

fingerboards are hell fun. I just love that i've made a fingerboard ramp. On paper it looked like an impossible task. And that transition is at the perfect angle so the wheels just roll up nice and smoothly.

 

There's meant to be a radio in there aswell, but screw that bit biggrin.gif

 

All I have to do it give in a 3rd coat of paint before giving it in and put some stickers on it. Which reminds me. Does anyone know any good websites/shops in England that do Element/any other skate company stickers? I need them to finish off the ramp.

Every time I pick a skateboard up nowadays, I can't skate for more than a few minutes before needing a rest. It's been such a long time since I was in good enough condition to enjoy skateboarding the way I used to. I think I'm going to practice more this year.

I've skated on and off for the past 5 years. Generally, you'd think I'd be a decent skater after that, but because I'll go off for like months, and then back into it for a month or so... it'll take me ages to just get back into my old confidence and lock all my tricks. I haven't skated for the past 6 or so months, but am probably gonna go for a roll in a week or so with a mate who has gotten into skating over the past year. I think we all remember back when we first got into skating, it's all we ever wanted to do with our spare time and stuff. So that's pretty much how my mate is, getting better and better rapidly, and kinda encouraging me to get back into it.

 

Really its just such a "can't be f*cked" thing, once you stop for a while, it just seems so hard to get back in and stay skating. It's always good fun though. Bloody annoying though when can't get tricks that you used be able to stomp every time; and taking the time to re-learn the sh*t which just came so naturally back in the day.

I've never been able to Kickflip. I can do all these fancy and hard looking old skool freestyle tricks and land them perfectly every time, but i cant kickflip. Weird.

 

I get the foot motion and the flip fine, but i never ollie high enough for the board to go all the way round. I started gettign real close by about Christmas, but i havent skated since November.

There are some alright spots. The picture of the stairs was my highschool but Jacksonville is pretty flat so not many stairs. I'll post some more pictures up later after class.
