Title: Thoughts on psychedelic drugs and skating?
Post by: bigrigbutters on August 04, 2019, 01:10:32 PM
Has anyone noticed the effects of psychedelic drug use on their skating? I smoked DMT for the first time this morning and ended up going skating after the effects had worn off.

It was like I had entirely changed my approach to skating, I was getting everything first try and being far more creative than usual. I've always been terrible at going frontside on ledges and it usually takes me 5-10 tries to even get a 5050, but today I did them first try, learnt front feebles and front smiths all in the space of about an hour.

I know some well known skaters sometimes do this sort of thing, "skating on acid is tight man" - lizard. And I'm pretty sure the gx1000 boys routinely drop acid and do ridiculous hill bombs.

Anyone have any similar experiences to share?

I've never actually done it. DMT leaves me flat out on my back. After I "return" I'm always exhausted and have a bit of a headache. I'll have to try it after eating only a small amount of mushrooms, just one or two. I'll report back soon if it isn't raining.

I like to trip once in a while. I like to push around, maybe some flat, but actual tricks seem too weird while I'm tripping.

Well Butters it didn't work. I only had one, large sized, fresh mushroom and even then it just wasn't going to happen. My legs felt like jello. Popping the board and actually jumping up felt very off. I made it down the street but all of the cars and noise were interfering with my vibrations. I walked back home instead. Maybe I'll try it another time.

I love psychedelics and truly believe that the experience is one of the most interesting things you can partake in. Just be safe and know your limits. We are kind of in a golden age/return of the awareness of psychedelic substances.

I still haven't tried skating while tripping though.

I haven't skated while tripping many times at all, but there's been a couple of times I've ended up feeling like my skating was unusually fluid and stylish due to increased awareness of my body and heavy time dilation, even if I was just doing my usual tiny bag of low level tricks. There's also the potential to just temporarily erase every little hint of ability though.

I skated fully tripping (this ďmicro dosingĒ shit the kids are on wasnít a thing back then) on mushies once.  I was surprisingly good. Landing flip tricks and doing ollie manuals on curb pads. I called it quits while I was ahead because I didnít really want to find out what the slamming and bleeding would feel like while hallucinating.

Yeah, wish I heard of the term 'microdosing' back then too...

Anyways skating on acid worked out good until I started fully 'peaking'.  After that I was in 'hiking in the mountains' mode n could care less bout skating.

On mushrooms I felt like I had a style like Fulfill the Dream Steve Olson (best way to explain it) I was landing fakie flip tailslides n fakie shove it tailslides with little to no effort (Chad Fernandez 411 32 part was in my VCR at the time). Everything kinda just clicked all while laughing like some psycho.

For me skating on Ecstasy sucked cuz there was this little  moment where I would pull good tricks, then after a short while my legs would just turn to jello and that was the end of the session...

Depends on what psychedelic you are speaking of. When I was in high school I smoked Salvia before going on a trip to a skatepark with my high schoolís skateboarding club. The. At the park I smoked weed outside in the parking lot  with some other kids (it was an indoor park). Iíll tell you I was floored, to the point where I could barely push. And music sounded so strange. I had to sit out the rest of the entire session.

after not skating for ten years my room mate gave me a tab of acid and his cruiser and sent me off alone through barcelona.
never stopped skating since

Did it when I was a fiend, way back ago. Felt like the ground and I were melting. Did not really like it, no way I could even pop an ollie.

Weed made me too dumb and slow to skate. Amphetamines did not really help. Opiates made me calm. Funny enough, one of my best sessions was while being dope sick. Could not really stand or sit still so skating kind of worked.

The first time I skated on acid I tried kickflip front lip for the first time and it did it first try. I didn't really even think while I was doing it. It seemed like it was already programmed into my brain just waiting for me to unlock it. With that being said, I've had some sessions on hallucinogens where I end up slamming and then ended up staring at the ground breathing for prolonged periods of time and lose interest in skating for the moment. If you tune into it right it can be magical

I find Americans like to do things in heavy access, and ive totally partaken in that myself. However a small dose of shrooms ( my favorite) or half a tab will add to the sesh quite a bit. Skated on psychedelics too many times to count and I almost always learn something new. Spacial awareness at an all time high while not being scared of consequence  calls for a good sesh

Weed, sure, but anything heavier and I'd rather walk through the redwoods or lay in a tent on a deserted beach.

Dust is the best one. I like to see myself skateboarding. Acid is good but I like to do it alone. With acid or mushrooms I mostly long distance skate and stop for only a few tricks. Sometimes I get in fights though because i donít want people to talk to me.

I try to time my peak with the sunrise. I sit looking at the mouth of the harbor. Most of my friends ashes are in the mouth of the harbor.

Last time I thought I might get a heavy rock and go say hi.

Fuck no lol. Personally I know I have zero tolerance for that kinda shit. I did an edible in university and had a 2 day panic attack, I can't imagine acid or shrooms. I had to write a paper on psychobilin and it's effects on mood. It can be a coin toss at times depending on the individual, it might be a spiritual awakening that smashes your ego and opens your perspective wide open, or a destructive one that gives your crippling depression for a few years. I've seen both happen to homies personally. I've got no issue with homies doing that sorta stuff responsibly, but I know I can't handle it.

Used it for transport but not for trickery, feels too forced and not something my board wanted to do. My deck has lost its structural rigidity whilst hill bombing and had to "Videodrome" my feet to the trucks, which was problematic when I had to step off. All good times.

I suck ass while skating on acid. Tricks-wise at least, cruising feels pretty amazing but maybe I haven't tried it enough. Had one proper sesh where I couldn't really bring myself to do anything and another at a cabin by the lake just mucking around. The one at the cabin was an incredible trip, the one where I was trying to actually skate was an amazing trip as well, but I wasn't amazing at skating...

Learning tricks: stimulants (meth)
Hucking down big shit: benzos (Xanax)
After session: opioids (heroin)
Living a happier life: sobriety (12 Steps)

Thatís what I did.

I personally hated psychs myself.  Do what you want to do though.

Iíve skated on acid a few times.
This year alone I took a couple hits and went to my local park to skate and hang out with friends.
I def canít skate as well as normal but I can still do my easy go to tricks like nollie shuv, front board tap the box, back board the flat bar.
Iíll end up just skating in circles for like 20 min not even doing tricks, just loving how I feel.
Itís a little harder for me to skate on acid but itís still very fun.
I remember the first time I took mushrooms when I was 19, I couldnít even balance on my board.

When I was doing the most drugs, I was actively skating the least. The idea at the time of skating on any drug seemed weird, like I'm just tryin to chill, right!? But then I stopped doing a ton of drugs and skated more, lovely. Then saw/read interviews with pros who were really about the shit, made me think what I missed out on. Oh well such is life.

If youíre comfortable with it, small amounts of mushrooms (micro-dosing .5-1g) is a fantastic way to get out of your own way.

Iíve had giant doses of deems and other psychedelics but nah no way could I go do anything after it, gives me huge body load
Lsd and mushrooms though, shit just works sometimes
I go out by myself skate the city for hours
youíre fully redlining on the edge of slamming but you pull it somehow
Ainít nothing like it I love it I particularly enjoy bombing hills on that shit

Anyone that knows me knows that I donít step onto a skateboard without first being in a mescaline-induced time wormhole in which everything that has ever happened or ever will happen is condensed into one beautiful, tragic singularity.  Really helps my flick.

I am a large fan of acid but I feel like the trial and error aspect of skating just doesnít mix with acid. Failure just feels cosmically bad. Maybe skating a mini ramp and doing easy lines would be fun but I donít think a ledge would be enjoyable. I usually just find myself playing music or getting psyched on arts and crafts while on acid.
Title: Re: Thoughts on psychedelic drugs and skating?
Post by: matty_c on November 03, 2020, 08:46:01 PM
Whatís the best shit you guys seen on deems?

One time I smoked it and it was like cunts were coming in carrying the walls and just sliding new ones in there just men working in the periphery of my vision or something then Iím in a room with all these parallel lines going into infinity. Iím a tiler and I like straight lines and squares and flat shit I remember thinking fuck yeah this is mint then thereís this cunt coming at me in the air bout a metre above my head Iím looking at him but I donít want him to catch me looking. He looked like the dj from zoolander and he had big headphones
Heís getting closer just supermaning it and we lock eyes and he grins and gives me thumbs up and he passes above my head then Iím back in the first room but the ceiling is like ratcheting down and thereís a trumpet playing it keeps getting closer and finally the ceiling is right on my nose the trumpet is full crescendo then everything stops the ceiling shoots right back up and I come to and my dog is looking at me with hella wild eyes sheís just like cunt wtf

Another time it was like candy crush but Iíve said enough hahaha

Edit how do you guys smoke it Iím just a wasteful cunt I donít weigh shit I woulda smoked ounces of the shit over the years
I just sandwich it in a bong with something like dami for the maoi inhibitor
But yeah Iíve smoked huge whacks of the shit. Only drug I ever had with no tolerance build up honestly cocaine makes me feel way worse after. Dmt is nice as to do alone
Had a mate watch once and I was gone for about 9 mins he said it freaked him out so I just do it by myself now

Some of those sci fi fantasy animations remind me of dmt I reckon jerry loves it

I've skated on the come down of a trip but never while im peaking... idk the idea of skating while im fully in it just never resonated with me, lemme put on mindfield or bronze trust and just vibe out. What I do love is editing and putting together videos while im peaking, searching for songs off youtube, color correcting, and finding good transitions. Whenever I look back at it when I sober up it blows my mind that I made it lol.

First time i took acid i was at potrero and learned how to ollie into transition. I had alot of energy and could do basics but was rubbish at most stuff. I did a small amount of mushrooms last year and skated a park, got really close to doing my first legit on coping handplant. Might be fun to microdose again but ive been sober almost all year so i dont know about getting off the wagon again

Psychedelics are some of the most powerful and eye opening substances. I've always wanted to skate on mescaline but I don't think it would be a good idea. It would be horrible to go through a serious injury while tripping. I think they're best used quietly in a good space with little distractions. I used to drink san pedro and walk for hours on end. Some of the best experiences ive had.

Man, you guys are all troopers. I took LSD and i had the worst time ever coming down. I skated to the grocery store after a night of tripping but I didn't really try any tricks, I just felt weird as shit trying to piece together reality. Don't think I'll be doing psyches for a while, but it was an interesting experience that definitely changed my perspective on things.

Iíve had two super y uncomfortable acid trips, one was when I took 7 hits, I was still skating at my local until I peaked and it was so strong that my muscles were all in strong pain.
The other time was like a week ago, 2 hits and a weed edible, when the edible kicked in it got super strong and uncomfortable, looking back on it, my face and jaw hurt super bad and it felt like I had been shot in the face and was fading in and out of life, I didnít skate this day.
Luckily I can come down from acid pretty quickly and Trips tend to last me around 3-4 hours. Both these times I had to take a benzo and kratom to bring me back down to earth.
The other time was recently

When I think of acid I associate it with the feeling in my face of smiling for hours. One time I hit a rough patch and remember so vividly the feeling of the muscles in my face going from intense smile slowly to a frown. Iíve only had a few bad trips but I have to say once they are over they are kind of profound. Everyone should try acid at some point. It really teaches you how to control your emotions and see everything from a more zoomed out complete view. Still donít think I would risk skating while tripping though.

Have some experience with skating on LSD. I received the acid by mail, delivered in an envelope. There should have been acid on me and my two friends who also skate. I think dosage was about 160mg. Skated so fast and every trick first try but felt myself so uncomfortable cus there were lot of people skating in that place. Next to my local spot where I skated was a park and I secluded myself in the trees. I turned on meditation music and thought a lot about being, about my family, problems and how many people I skate with are fake. I was doing some breathing techniques and as soon as I calmed down I went for a walk among the trees, it seemed very surprising to me how wonderful nature is. I liked the visuals, but not to say that I saw the fractals. The picture at times became blurred and the colors were much brighter. At one point I realized that you can do any trick, the main task is just to believe in it.

One of my friends said that shit and he unlocked tre-flips after his trip. Wish I could say I learned a new trick, I still suck. Maybe if I tried a microdose though...

I've never skated on shrooms or LSD and honestly it never occurred to me to try it. I started skating again, but I might need to sort myself out a bit if I ever plan on tripping again. Sometimes it just seems like life is crazy enough as it is.
