longboards are the wrongboards!
90% of peeps on longboards cant even ride em properly too haha. They usually for people who are not fit enough to actually skateboard
Woman with a longboard is always hot sight.
Finally got the blank cut out on my lb from a friend. Everything else is ready.
In the end I went with randal 180, sector 9 nineballs very soft can't remember the duro, and bones reds. The grip tape design is undecided though. I think I'm gonna do a mix of strips and solid.
i just rode my first longboard saturday night
holy shit that was fun i want one
OK, so if I'm just looking for a board to get around, and maybe do some slides and whatnot later on, I should probably get like a 40" board, and higher diameter harder wheels? What about trucks? Or do they really matter that much? (I know they matter but is there huge differences between brands/styles etc.)
I'd like to get started with longboarding as my birthday nears. What are some good starter boards? I use to skate years and years ago.
what are some good trucks for crusing/long distance/shallow hill
I'll probably start longboarding next summer, I'll have to do short distances between my house and where I work.
i just wish there was anywhere flat near me so i could learn to ride it properly
I plan on using mine for transportation, so turning is key, i live in a flat area. so i plan on using a land paddle, my budget is under >80 but its my first longboard so
I've been longboarding for over a year now which is good and all, but lately I've been feeling a bit depressed and that doesn't go well when going down steep hills.
There's this one hill I skate down a lot when going to work, and I must hit 30-40 km/s on it, like I am going really fast. I never wear a helmet so I always think if I hit a rock and fell, or a car hit me, I would definitely die or at least fuck up my life some how. I get a huge adrenaline rush from it but I always wonder if I should just fuck up on purpose.
My dad long boards a lot; it's actually really fun (until you fall off)
Going to practice some sliding in Central Park this weekend on my Robot, anybody have any tips? I've never been quite able to master slides. Particularly Coleman.
I feel better now, I made a new friend who I'm going ice skating with tomorrow night <3. Emo stage is over. It was weird.
I know I should wear a helmet, but I've been going down steep hills for so long now (and my board is pretty stable, 46 inches long) and it just all feels so natural to me like walking or riding a bike casually around the street, which I also don't wear a helmet for. I definitely should wear one though.
Finally had a friend cut out my board. Sanded everything down and got it all fitted. Randall trucks are a bitch to mount if youre going for a drop-through. I spent a good hour filing the area down.
Hopefully tomorrow or on the weekend I can countersink the trucks, stain/finish the board, and finalize the design of my grip tape.
I'll post pics soon.
Still thinking about my grip tape design I like the top one the most.
Sorry if the pics are a little big and fuzzy, all I have right now is my ipt.
i like the second design
Here's an edit of some winter skating from where i live.
