Fuck man ... I love this thread and you guys!  I have never been able to do a real impossible ( with a good wrap ) this weekend if it's dry for a couple hours, I pledge to you, my old dudes I will learn them and post up a clip in this thread in honor of Dylan and to keep the good vibes alive and well in here.  I posted this in the other thread but I should have just kept it here ... a little bluntslide a day after my wedding ...

now that's what I'm talking about! good to see some updates (and good-looking bluntslides) from you guys.

Someone brought a new box to the DIY foundation spot so I did the thing on it.


I think you can get lucky and switch mannie that thing.....

Sick no bump nose mannie.....takes me so many tries for the no bump...no idea how anyone flips out....

I liked the nose manual too.... Soy, when you say "no bump", you mean bumping the back wheels when you come off? I have trouble with that too...Gonna work on it this afternoon or tomorrow if I can manage to get two hours off from dad duty !

Good stuff guys!

I was filming some junk yesterday and decided to redo a rock and roll that wasn't fully decked. Slipped out, tweaked my knee on a split, and dislocated my fucking elbow. Good times! Herniated a disc in my back earlier this summer doing a scorpion (although that was mainly attributable to my age said the doctor).


Anyway, don't mean to cast a gloom and I did have a good summer of skating. I got plenty of time to edit my super underwhelming footage now.

Legit! Congrats on tying the knot and landing that.

The ledge seems a little soft as in it sinks very slightly in when you land on top of it. I'm gunning for the switch nose manny, but it's been a while since I've made one and that thing is not very wide. We'll see...

I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

props for the properly decked rock man! skating with a family member is awesome, I hope my sons come around before I'm useless.......

So I've been watching these and Tommy G made me feel better about my shrinking bag of tricks when he said he's just given up on tricks. Plus he's into music so I can relate! The contrast between the two is crazy tough........Gonz still gets depressed when he can't land his tricks!

Here's my video of skating over this summer. Forty! Whoop whoop!

After the slam I took I probably won't be touching a board until spring.

Ouch.
I like the "boardslides" title. I'm wrapping up this part I've been filming over 2016 and it's funny how many boardslides are in there. It's been a very comfortable trick for me lately.
Next month I'll be the big 40. I remember shortly after I turned 30, I fs bigspinned this bump to flat gap thing. On the raw footy, when I roll away I raised my arms in victory and said "first trick as a 30 year old". It was like, hey I can still do this. I'm excited for what my first one as a 40 year old will be.
Also, good looking with skating the best shoe out there. Reynolds cup is the only thing on my feet these days.

Boardies' are all I've ever had. They're my slappy.



Handsclapanin: I can't find anymore Reynolds cupsoles in my size. I'm starting to panic.

Nice Willie!

I liked the spots too.
For me, it's torture right now. I'm in Paris to visit family/friends, but I got a bad cold and it's just impossible to skate, I'm too busy coughing. feel like shit. But I'm staying like one street away from this spot...FUCK. Hope I get at least one session in before we leave sunday...

I've been stockpiling because it doesn't look like Emerica is keeping this shoe around forever.
If you're a 9.5 (like me) then I'm mad at myself for telling you this. But Amazon looks to have pretty much every size.
Support your local amazon!

https://www.amazon.com/Emerica-REYNOLDS-LOW-Skateboarding-Silver/dp/B00Y1MH9V6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478287465&sr=8-1&keywords=reynolds%2Blow&th=1&psc=1

Or you can go straight to Emerica (but the cost is a little more).
http://emerica.com/shoes/the-reynolds-low-11/black-silver/

3 years ago I got my first pair of Reynolds at a local shop. Every pair since then, I've had to get online because no shop around here carries the cupsole.

just found this Old Man thread. 37 counts as "old" right?

on to the important stuff: any tips on reversing a permanent hot-pocket?

my right ankle feels like it's stuffed with soggy dish towels, and i haven't had full range of motion in it in years.

41 here. Currently in a tropical area, recently unemployed and skating at least two three times a week. Can honestly say I have more control than I've ever had on my board, even still learning weird new little moves. My biggest negative which has been declining since my 30's is ollieing.  I do wonder when it will all end though  :-\

I'm 34 n recently ollied my first bum out in the wild.

No lookin and sizing him up to do it either.

Just skatin down the street goin from point A to B, looked ahead n saw a passed out dude sittin up n decided to float over him.

When I landed I laughed my drunken ass off as I continued down the street.

Came home n told the wife, she didn't give one shit.

anyway, will post some footage of the 3 or 4 tricks I can do

Thanks....I just figured this one out in the last couple years....

Maybe you old guys remember Mike V in speed freaks....stationary Ollie to smiths....that's where this came from....

The ABC shirt is from the Gonz part in that old real vid....

Been struggling recently. Shit weather, too much work. I know if I can still get the odd 360 flip, I'm OK.  Tried yesterday in below freezing weather and failed. Now, I'm on a horrible mission to land one tre before 2017... In times of yore I'd be hunting wooly mammoth to feed my family for the winter but in this day and age, its a 360 flip before new year....

what's funny was i could never throw down a 360 flip when I was skating all day every day as a kid, but finally landed one a couple years ago after watching a trick tip on youtube haha

Old dude. New part.
I'll be 40 next week.
Filmed over the last year.
My last part (posted a few pages back in this thread) had a grand total of 2 flip tricks. So this time around I really made an effort to do some flipping. Even if it's just a flatground trick here and there.
Warning, contains an over abundance of boardslides and tricks not involving an Ollie (wallrides, wallies, slappies). If you're not down with that, don't waste your time. Otherwise, hope you enjoy. It's basic tricks, but I try to at least keep the spots interesting.
