Do ABD's affect your skating?
« on: May 23, 2018, 11:09:08 AM »
To all of the people on here who are unsponsored or arent looking to make a career out of skating(im assuming thats most of us), would a pro doing a trick at a certain spot stop you from trying it? what about another local doing that trick? personally ill take what i can get, but it does feel a little diminishing knowing someone else already did it before you.

If I could do a trick that a pro did at a spot, I would be stoked out of my mind.

Ironically there's an inverse relationship for me. If I do a trick at a spot and find out a certain pro filmed themselves doing it and put it in a part, I'm stoked to know my trick was worthy of a pro video part

I feel the same. I did a couple tricks in my prime that got done by pros/ams at the same spot and I felt pretty good about those. I don't think it would ever bug me to do the same trick as someone who's good enough to get paid to skate.

Every trick I've ever landed has been an ABD, so I'm not sure whether my answer is yes or no to this question.

No, in fact I've worked years towards my goal of fully recreating the classic Carlos Ruiz part from Blind Skateboard's "What If?" for over a decade now.

I'd be flattered to share a trick as a pro. I'm a little more mindful when it comes to local spots, but at the end of the day I'll take what I can get.

Kinda off topic but growing there was always cool
To have those big sets of stairs and gaps etc around locally
That looked huge hearing stories about such n such ollied/kickflipped it
Etc and local kids trying to show up the older ones.. sometimes they'd get salty

Has anyone kickflipped on flat ground while being 34 and overweight yet?

Quite the opposite scenario, but a pro once came to the city I lived and filmed a pretty weak two trick line that culminated in a trick I had done years before. My dick felt a little bigger for a few weeks after seeing that.

Ill try to think of something at a spot that I haven't seen before. Pulling an NBD at a spot gives it a little extra value in my mind, but if someone has done it before that wont always stop me from trying it either, just depends on what the spot is and if I have any other trick options for it.

one time we built a bit of tranny up to a jersey barrier and i did a bluntslide across it,it took about 45mins to an hour to land, went through a full saga trying it.

**2 days later**

NB# come through town and are at the spot whiele im there with the homeies and axel cruysberghs does the same trick about 3rd or 4th go and then continues to do it about 8 times all of them perfect and so much better than i did!

i was pretty hyped he did the same trick then to see the footage and the photo be ran as well!

Street skating died out (for the most part) in my city years ago so any abd is 5+ years old. If it's been that long the only people around here who remember are the O.Gs who show up once a year at the skatepark to talk about how good they used to be.

the worst is when someone shows you around their town and only takes you to the gnarly spots and tells you whats been done there. It's good to know whats been done but i'm not there to one up someone. it's usually to see what i can do on that spot. who am i kidding i usually film the homies.

No, in fact I've worked years towards my goal of fully recreating the classic Carlos Ruiz part from Blind Skateboard's "What If?" for over a decade now.

I remember at one point in my life I could actually recreate Julio de la Cruz's part in Da Deal Is Dead for a short stint, I could do all the tricks. I actually considered refilming it shot to shot for a little bit but eventually figured I couldn't be bothered and it wouldn't be the best investment of my time. now I've lost the two thirds of those tricks and I kind of regret it
