how should i go about skating the bigger bowl without eating shit flying to the flatbottom, should i wear kneepads? should i just man up and try to hit it? should i practice for a few more days? i dont know so far i got a drop it and a rock to fakie, but i havent got a 50-50 on it nor have i rolled in, im mainly concerned with rolling in.

How big is the bowl? Like anything else, you're gonna have to work your way up over time.

When you shake hands with a woman is it still fair game to try to crush her hand like buff assholes do?

i went to try it, i havent been that scared trying to skate something in a looooong time, full pads on still bitched out. i think i still have hesitation from being 10 and flying to the flat bottom off the top of ramps at ripon too many times (long story there) and im still shook. this is what it looks like though, i mean its not that bad but its the coping+ not seeing it until im right there that fucks with me, this is gonna be a slow process.

and theres a more shallow "bowl" right next to it, i can go full speed ahead into that one but its not that curved.

There isn't enough there to call it coping, and that isn't a real bowl.

Also, you're trolling.

the rest of the thing has a corner and another wall so i just went with bowl, and the pic is of the line i was gonna take and that was the part of it with the mellowest coping sticking out,, also if your refeering to me im not trolling my thought process really is just this stupid.

Do you think some of the Baker or Deathwish riders secretly hate doing the double high five every time, but feel obligated? Or do some of them get anxiety when they greet a non Baker skater and wonder if the person that's about to give them a handshake is going to go for the double high five or just a normal pound?

I remember growing up in my neighborhood around the age of 10 learning how to skate with my first board.

There was an older kid, probably 16-17 years old who would always pass by my house with this flatbar. I had no one to skate with, so one day I followed him down to the corner. He set up the rail off the curb so it had this slant to it. I thought he was so rad, so I just skated near him trying my own "tricks" and din't say one word to him.

Looking back, it was probably kinda funny for him. Everytime he would skate his flatbar, this little kid would come down to the corner and basically session with him without saying a word. I always looked up to him and eventually started to talk to him. He was super nice, and showed me how to ollie and whatnot. He also really influenced me alot with chain wallets and baggy jeans. Eventually he stopped going to the corner, but I continued to skate there when I got my first flatbar.

I wonder where he is today and if he still skates...

Major shout out to that dude for being cool to a presumably annoying little kid.

It's been just about two years now, I'm pretty curious how it's going to play out.

Most recent article I read, said he wasn't being charged for it?
Probably laying low, maybe in a good rehab, hopefully.


I wish things would have worked out for Marquis Preston, in the skateboarding world.

What legal advise does someone take when being stalked/harassed? I think this person also has my SS# somehow, possibly through an old W-2 or through hacking. There have been hard inquiries into my credit, as of recent, but it's been over a year since I applied for a credit card...kind of glad I don't have a good enough FICO score for huge loans. I haven't given my SS# to anyone or applied for jobs in the recent past. The timing for both of these have a suspicious overlap, leading me to believe that it's the same person.

cops are lazy about that. it's identity theft, not stalking. some africans [nigerian, ghana? one of those countries] had cable in my sister's name. the cops knocked on the door once but nobody claimed responsibility. she got it shut off but no follow up. i'd try to contact the companies people are finessing in your name, shut off services and freeze your bad credit from accruing.

Thanks, my stress made me super paranoid that someone was trying to fuck me over. Being high while having stress is terrible. Anyway, I tried to sell shit on Craigslist a couple weeks ago...should have used the relay e-mail, instead of contacting the e-mail addresses and phone numbers in the e-mails, which turned out to be fake. I was desperate to get rid of the furniture, and probably got phished. I'll definitely freeze my credit, and thanks again, man. My blood pressure is through the roof right now, and drinking a quad white mocha did not help.

no worries pidge.
so ya know that tired narrative 'skateboard deck prices have been practically unchanged in 30 yrs?'
well bull to the shit, says i.
i remember a day when we usedta buy blanks for $20, shop decks. pro decks, not more than $40. so i left my hometown and inflation happened and not too long ago i paid $68 goddamn dollars for a Polar. i like Pontus but i don't $68  like him.
this happened twice actually so i bought a $45 deck [w/ grip] at Rusty's skatepark and when it runs out i'm debating supporting black ninja. yes, cake muscle is a god awful name, the thing that should not be. buuuutttt, at $33 a piece, i can buy 2 for what i pay for one here. am i fucking over the little guy, brick and mortar? amd i voting w/ my dollar that i want more obnoxious youtube content? wwjskate? is that a slippery slope to remive? what's wrong? what's right? people don't care, they hate their lifes.

Monkey's question got me thinking: Do vert skater's feel pressure to outdo other vert skater's? That's the only reason I think Danny Way hasn't released that part. Vov fucking destroyed shit in that stand-alone part which I'm sure had every vert dude shook.
