Hey guys, I used to skate few years back but 2 badly sprained ankles in a month, my guitaring getting more prominent and splitting the nose of my deck lead me to stop unfortunately. I still love watching it though. Back in the day Rodney Mullen and Eric Koston were my favourites to watch.

 

I had a You S.A deck,

Black Panther bearings,

Spitfire wheels,

Black Magic grip tape

and some Active Power trucks which while being pretty unheard of were absolutely f*cking savage. Some of the best trucks I ever used.

 

My board actually ruled.... dontgetit.gif I wanna start skating again.

 

My friend and I built a half pipe with a rail off it in the field behind our house. The odd board and nose slide were about the best I ever managed on that damn rail though lol.gif

 

Well that ends my life story, gooday.

Its funny how you people think skating a better deck makes you a better skater.

 

I have a horrible old set up

 

and i will pawn any of you in a game of skate and my deck is nearly brocken and one of my trucks is cracked.

 

seriously... if your not good at skateboarding, buying a better deck wont improve any of your chances.

 

and the boardslide above needs a lot of work ^^^^^^

 

why even bother posting something like that on youtube? (its backside btw becuase your back is towards it)

 

its like little kids that post their tre flip attempts up on youtube and wine about how they cant land them..... annoys me so much

 

show offs.

i mean no offence in this post to anyone

Wow, someone needs to chill out icon14.gif.

 

If you can afford getting a new deck, why not? I would say it is easier to skate on a better condition deck, and thus get better; ESPECIALLY if your starting out, than it would be if you were skating on some crapped out piece of wood.

 

And by posting videos, be it even of bails, means they can get constructive criticism, especially if they're doing it completely wrong.

 

But what do I know? I was sh*t at skating smile.gif.

Buying a better deck will imporve your skating. What if you have a deck with no pop and a flat concave?

your pathetic. why even bother posting sh*t like that. if you cant learn it yourself then give up at skateboarding.

one day when your older and have matured you'l realise how stupid you were as a child

 

 

even though i think I'm right

Your not right. he is goofy and when hes skating paralel to it the object is behind him. Its backside

It means you will be able to ollie higher. That doesnt make you a better skater. It makes you a sh*t skater with a better board that has no technique.

Get off Gtaforums, get a job, buy yourself a better board and stop being such a bitter asshole on an internet forum. There's nothing work with progression. Instead of ridiculing new skaters, why not encourage them. This is the kind of sh*t that scares kids from picking up.

i dont want any new skaters.

 

my local skatepark is crowded full of idiot kids who think there pro becuase they can post a video of themselves nearly kickflipping on youtube

 

i hate people like that

 

skate for fun, not to impress others and show off/wine about sh*t on youtube

 

I encourage people to stay at home and not to come to a skatepark (and annoy everyone/get in peoples way) untill you can at least varial flip or what not

 

I have a nice amount of money too, im not simply too poor to buy a new set up, I just have more important things I can use the money with. Since I only skate once or twice a week its not a priority

if it was an impressive boardslide that maybey was on a downrail/handrail then fair enough

 

but its like a 2 inch flatbar and you tap it more than acterlly grind it

Ahh... Skating. I haven't done any skating in almost 2 years. I wonder if it's like riding a bike when you start again. I remember going to Downtown L.A. and skate on all the gov. buildings... best spots in L.A.

I retired after I got tired of replacing my decks. confused.gif What can you expect when my favorite tricks are boardslides and darkslides? oh... all the ball traumas... RODNEY MULLEN!!! Best skater EVERRR (and the reason I started).

no but I dont expect you to post your crappy attempts at boardslides on the internet

 

if i had them like you do id be ashamed to show anyone, I cant see how you can acterlly record yourself and publish it ONLINE

 

seriously, practice, and then post the finished product (prefferably down a handrail or what not) on youtube if you must

 

nobody wants to watch your faliure attempts on a TINY FLATBAR and despite what they say NOBODY wants to help you

 

I just hate it when people like you try to show off to everyone on youtube

Since you mention this I asked the man who films me at my skatepark for some footage to be put on youtube

He told me his camera broke and when he extracted footage it was all grainy.

So were going to re-film lots tomorrow and I will be able to post a video for you in a week or so

 

Then... you will be the one who can 'f*ck off' and stop posting your sh*t on youtube

Wightboy, skating is all about being the best, right? RIGHT?! Get off your high horse and just skate. You might not be trying to come off as a show off, but saying stuff like "ICANPAWN ALL OF YOU LOL" certainly doesn't help your case. Understand that in no way am I trying to attack you, but the way you express your opinions comes off very rudely. Seriously man, you need to just lighten up and let people do their own thing without bothering them about it. Cheers.

 

Anywho, on topic: I haven't skated in ages because of a knee injury, and I'll probably just end up pissing myself off by trying to skate again. So nowadays I just photograph and do a bit of filming for friends and contests in the area.

 

When I get on my laptop, I'll go ahead and edit this post with some of the pictures I've taken.

Only person I see here being a "whiney kid" is you.

 

Skateboarding is one of the hardest sports out there. Thousands of people do it, but most aren't very good, because it's incredibly hard to land even the simplest of tricks. I used to skateboard when I was younger, and I could barely even do an olley.

 

You, on the other hand, are walking around this topic like you're hot sh*t. You keep criticizing everyone, but you have no proof to show that you yourself are a second Tony Hawk. Speaking of Tony Hawk, reading your posts reminds me of playing Tony Hawk games. You're like an eight year old who thinks he's a genius with cars because he's good at Forza 2 Motorsport.

 

I don't see where you get off, acting like you're the best damn skateboarder on the forums. Then again, this isn't the first time I've seen you bitching about something. It seems to be in your nature. I would highly recommend that you drop the "I'm better than everyone else" attitude if you plan on having a future of any kind on this website. Otherwise, I can see you being banned in the very near future; it's happened plenty of times before to cocky members such as yourself.

 

 

I apologize for intruding the topic, skateboarding fans, but I've grown very weary of his constant bullsh*t.

Skateboarding is one of the hardest sports out there.

As ive stated in my PM.

Any sport is hard. Skateboarding isnt hard

It just takes practice.

It took me like 4 years to even ollie (I hadnt played tony hawk games as a child) I just liked to roll around on it after school in my back yard

Then, I started to play the skating games for my Ps2 which i got for xmas one year.

From that, i learnt to ollie, and subsiquently kickflip a short while after.

It was around a year or so later I got varial kicks down, and to this day my tre (360) flips still arnt that smooth & perfected.

When i go to my local skatepark, I do not find it hard. the same way a veterain footballer would not find scoring a goal hard.

Its just hard when you start out.

You clearly didnt persist in the sport being the reason you find the sport difficult and you cant 'land the simplest of tricks'

I would refrain from being harsh to you, but your horrible PM's to me more than over-compinsate any insult I throw at you.

Loosing a few pounds might help.
