Title: When do you consider someone a “skateboarder”
Post by: Fernandito on September 20, 2020, 08:48:40 AM
I’ve been skating for nearly 9 months now after a very long hiatus and doubt I’ll ever be on the same wave length as people who stuck with it from a young age. I feel like a kooky mid-20s grandpa trying to live out his tweenage fantasies

They etch your name into a big rock at the summit of Mount Skateboadia the second you rip your first shoelace.  Can’t believe you didn’t know about that.

Fluffy fingers. That's when someone asks if you’re a real skateboarder and you just start ticklin' 'em. Then they start tickling you. Pretty soon, you’re laughing and hugging. Before you know it, you've forgotten that there was even a time you weren’t a skateboarder. Y'all just go to church together and get an ice cream cone.

“Skating is what we do, not who we are”



If you really really want to know when....


-The skate eye. Noticing spots in public. When your dad asks you to find a bench to sit on at Disneyland for your family, the first thing that comes to mind is sick grinds instead of sitting.

-The call. When you hear wheels rolling down the street, you HAVE to look. Impossible to ignore.

-Looking in the mirror and saying “ANDY ROY” 3 times.

-The force. It’s not as easy as noticing someone’s ripped shoes. Sometimes you just know when someone is a “skateboarder”

-Yelling, “Yeeeee” when another “skateboarder” barely scratches the coping.

told this before but I “quit” for 7 years after doctors told me to and relearned it all at 27. I’m better at 32 than I was at 16 (low impact tho of course). Have fun. Also in my years off I always daydreamed about skating, saw spots, did imaginary fingerboarding on the table if you know what I mean. It’s for life.

when that person has a skateboard
that it use
a lot to ride around,

or do tricks on

and is on slap posting

and needs grip, bolts, shoes on the regs
and other things
like a new deck,
each month or every few weeks

so i was checking new gear
and shit
at my local to get a new deck
and i said "how much for this here old ass 917 deck"

it had some car on it, but i don't know really

and the dude would say fifty, with grip

i said i only have 40
just bought a dimebag minutes before but now
so i only got 40

and that board is old
so warped it looks like
the arm of a ceiling fan
so the dude says alright and hands me the deck, with the
seranwrap still on and shit

and i rip the wrap off
and feel the texture
that is like wood, but with more ridges, on the top ply than the smoother bottom
and how i will put grip on it soon

and that board is warped
it might be nice for 360 flips
or suck to kickflip
nobody knows, it's a mystery

and how that will destroy my shoes
and how my feet stink after skating

like cheeses after midnight

and so i am hungry and
looking for my s-one helmet everywhere
to make some dinner in it
with mashed potato, cheese
and spring onions

probably hot sauce, too

because true skaters don't use plates
you use your unused helmets, dipshit
tape up the holes, you dummy
unless you dig stains and leakage

and also i got two tall boys to drink

anyways

the street is nice
where the shop is
the dogs never treat me wrong
when i'm packing treats

because i know i'm a skaterboarderer

they don't fuck with me

You have to have bs lipslides on flatbars, at least one kickflip in ledge trick and atleast one stylish switch flip trick.

It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to bs lipslides then you aren't a skater.


Basically i don't consider 99% of slap to be skaters which is sad considering my low standards.

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.


Like listen to the responses to this thread " the first time falling in public " Ok so someone who hasn't even learned how to ride a skateboard is a skater because they ate shit infront of a crowd?

a) the first time you get so scared on your board you accidentally get a boner, the pro's call it a "Fear Boner", you'll learn to love it

b) anytime you step on your board, smile and realise this horrible, unrelenting evil place we call planet Earth gets so much less terrible when you're skating

c) when you rip a dope sticker off the park ramp and put it on the back of your board but it rips off 2 days later and you superglue it to you dad's desk where you secretly watch porn near where your parents are sleeping

That’s exactly what I’m saying.  You are disgusted by slap, haha.  I, and the majority of people on here, have let you down... and for that I am deeply sorry.

When did i say you have to be exceptional? This is your problem, if you ever actually put in any decent amount of effort to skating, the thing y'all claim to love you would realize learning bs lips, flip in ledge tricks and a nice switch flip isn't exceptional at all.

Your logic here is pathetic and it shows that education means nothing when it comes to your intelligence. First off anyone can go to school for 4 years as literally all it takes it showing up, skating for 4 years requires showing up AND dealing with 4 years worth of falls and injuries. Skateboarding is learned by yourself, give a new skater the exact advice on how to tre flip and it won't help him at all as he has to learn it himself, on the other hand give a student a formula and he can instantly put it to use by himself. There are also no cheat codes in skateboarding, if you can't do something you can't do it, you can't just copy the work or look it up on google and instantly have the trick like with education. Also to finish it off, i've never said anyone has to master skateboarding to state their opinion or have it matter, just have a decent bag of tricks so your talking from experience, aka in your school terms you should have at least passed grade 6 english class before you start talking shit on someone who's graduated high school.

I’ve been skating for nearly 9 months now after a very long hiatus and doubt I’ll ever be on the same wave length as people who stuck with it from a young age. I feel like a kooky mid-20s grandpa trying to live out his tweenage fantasies

You have to have bs lipslides on flatbars, at least one kickflip in ledge trick and atleast one stylish switch flip trick.

It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to bs lipslides then you aren't a skater.


Basically i don't consider 99% of slap to be skaters which is sad considering my low standards.
Not that there’s a point to arguing the matter with you, but I considered myself a skateboarder years before I landed any of the tricks you listed.
Shit, my homey; I was considering myself a skateboarder before any of those tricks were invented.
You can poke fun all you like, tell us we are or aren’t this or that, I don’t imagine a one of us gives a hoot what you think with regards to who is or isn’t a skateboarder.
I did, however, like your list of qualifications, even if it does set the bar a might high for some.
Grab yourself a tall, cold glass of shalom & chill out. There’s some nice folks on here; try engaging with them instead of berating them.

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.


Like listen to the responses to this thread " the first time falling in public " Ok so someone who hasn't even learned how to ride a skateboard is a skater because they ate shit infront of a crowd? That's retarded, an actual skater would say something like " a person who's fallen skating by themselves 1000 times and gotten up to land the trick"

When you have fun pushing. Thats it. Learning new stuff and working on tricks is definitely a great feeling but there are no set definitions of being a skateboarder. Also seeing stairs, ledges and other spots out in the wild and imagining tricks is also par with the course /part of the fun . Not everybody is going to have the same skill set or natural ability. Just skate and have fun imo

Yes WE are the delusional people.  How dare us lowly peons ever comment on someone’s skating if we aren’t exceptional as well.   

Using your logic, since I have a master’s degree and you do not, I can critique your education and intelligence since you haven’t struggled, strived or shown the same dedication to an education as I have therefore you are stupid and cannot call yourself educated especially in my presence.  Anything you say to the contrary will show me how jealous and inferior you feel/are

second, SlapRhaters, you are an absolute darling...kisses to you...anyone who has continued to skate for decade after decade despite the ubiquitous pressures to stop--physical, social, familial, economic, etc.--can only sit back and smile at your completely random list of compulsory tricks.

ps: i've been skateboarding for over 35-years and i have had frontside 5-0s on round flat bars (not dragging the tail, standing up) probably longer than you've been alive, at least longer than you've been a "skateboarder"--way harder than back lips.

You might not notice it due to being too caught up in your act (calling it like it is on the sole basis of your user name), but accounts like yours that bring nothing to the table but cheap shots and middle-school level drama don't really level this place up either. Your obsession with other users and constant generalizations and fantasizing regarding them (because by speaking for all of SLAP, that's what you're doing) really reads like you're the one constantly projecting and protecting your own insecurities regarding 'skate skill' and 'skate identity'. I'm just being honest and trying to provide you with some perspective, not to give you shit. You're never bringing 1998 back by being an asshole to randoms on purpose, if you want to see a change on here then you should bring it positively by being your own person if you can, otherwise you're really wasting your time and energy and it's just a sad sight. SLAP and the Internet as a whole have always been full of bullshit, everyone has flaws, you just know it when you see it, sometimes laugh, always move on. Whether one likes it or not, skateboarding has changed a lot in 20+ years and nowadays it's something most everyone has access to, and can do or try appreciating casually; in the end if you let what other people do affect you as though it gets in your way of being yourself then maybe it's more of a personal struggle with your own identity?

Also I believe I'm the one who said getting into nollie nosebluntslides was easier on low stuff than some other bluntslide variations and I've been able to boardslide for 20+ years which is random as fuck to bring up but I'm not the one who did it, just saying to highlight how far you're willing to lump every poster together to stretch reality according to what you really wish it were. You should post like you expect other people to post, if you're trying to generate 'thought-out and educated conversations', and contribute to raising the bar if that's how you see it because honestly everything I've ever seen from your account has been shit talk and asking help to find a Shane O'Neil video once.

Just learn those tricks then. I’m in my forties (been skating continuously since I was a little kid) and learned slappies like two years ago. Not that hard just never thought to try them. Transition OTOH I have always hated and pretty much never skate and tbh I don’t care.

You have to have bs lipslides on flatbars, at least one kickflip in ledge trick and atleast one stylish switch flip trick.

It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to bs lipslides then you aren't a skater.


Basically i don't consider 99% of slap to be skaters which is sad considering my low standards.
[close]

Serious question: Why are you on here when you seem to hate slap and believe 99% of us can’t get on your level?
[close]

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.


Like listen to the responses to this thread " the first time falling in public " Ok so someone who hasn't even learned how to ride a skateboard is a skater because they ate shit infront of a crowd? That's retarded, an actual skater would say something like " a person who's fallen skating by themselves 1000 times and gotten up to land the trick"
[close]

Yes WE are the delusional people.  How dare us lowly peons ever comment on someone’s skating if we aren’t exceptional as well.   

Using your logic, since I have a master’s degree and you do not, I can critique your education and intelligence since you haven’t struggled, strived or shown the same dedication to an education as I have therefore you are stupid and cannot call yourself educated especially in my presence.  Anything you say to the contrary will show me how jealous and inferior you feel/are
[close]

When did i say you have to be exceptional? This is your problem, if you ever actually put in any decent amount of effort to skating, the thing y'all claim to love you would realize learning bs lips, flip in ledge tricks and a nice switch flip isn't exceptional at all.

Your logic here is pathetic and it shows that education means nothing when it comes to your intelligence. First off anyone can go to school for 4 years as literally all it takes it showing up, skating for 4 years requires showing up AND dealing with 4 years worth of falls and injuries. Skateboarding is learned by yourself, give a new skater the exact advice on how to tre flip and it won't help him at all as he has to learn it himself, on the other hand give a student a formula and he can instantly put it to use by himself. There are also no cheat codes in skateboarding, if you can't do something you can't do it, you can't just copy the work or look it up on google and instantly have the trick like with education. Also to finish it off, i've never said anyone has to master skateboarding to state their opinion or have it matter, just have a decent bag of tricks so your talking from experience, aka in your school terms you should have at least passed grade 6 english class before you start talking shit on someone who's graduated high school.
[close]

You’re just jealous (and also clearly have no idea what higher education involved)

That's funny considering i graduated from university, sounds like you are just jealous i didn't let that stop me from getting good at skating.

Shit, my homey; I was...a skateboarder before any of those tricks were invented.
[close]

first, this

second, SlapRhaters, you are an absolute darling...kisses to you...anyone who has continued to skate for decade after decade despite the ubiquitous pressures to stop--physical, social, familial, economic, etc.--can only sit back and smile at your completely random list of compulsory tricks.

ps: i've been skateboarding for over 35-years and i have had frontside 5-0s on round flat bars (not dragging the tail, standing up) probably longer than you've been alive, at least longer than you've been a "skateboarder"--way harder than back lips. "It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to [standing up on frontside 5-0s on round rails] then you aren't a skater."

I know your trying to be sarcastic but i agree with you 100%, how do you call your self a skater if you can't do the next step up from a basic 50-50? That's literally the basics.
 I use the bs lip as a requirement because it's the first trick where you have to commit to the blind side which imo is a right of passage for a skater. 

I had both of these tricks before i was 12 by the way, this is the req for a skater, not a good one lol.

Here goes slap again, you literally have no idea what your talking about, a fs board means FRONT SIDE as in literally FACING the rail as you watch your FRONT foot go over the rail, it also doesn't apply to 180s because if you do a proper 180 you will rotate enough to be facing forward again by the time you land. A back lipslide however requires coming from the BACK SIDE with your BACK foot going over the rail.

Nice try slap has proven to be retarded again.

No i'm not, you just don't understand, You get into bs lipslides, you don't get "into" bs 180s. Again how are you so confident about something you know nothing about?

Mister you said commit to blindside- do you do back 180s without committing to them? You have an interesting way of doing tricks

Again bs 180s aren't blind side so your point doesn't make any sense.

Here goes slap again, you literally have no idea what your talking about, a fs board means FRONT SIDE as in literally FACING the rail as you watch your FRONT foot go over the rail, it also doesn't apply to 180s because if you do a proper 180 you will rotate enough to be facing forward again by the time you land. A back lipslide however requires coming from the BACK SIDE with your BACK foot going over the rail.

Nice try slap has proven to be retarded again.

Ultimately only a poser would get mad if someone labels them not a skater, which is really why I love your presence in this thread.

My problem with calling those tricks blind side is that they are only blind side if you do them in a weird way and it's a slippery slope because technically you can turn any trick into a blind side if you do it weird enough.

Also depends on your definition of blind. To me it's can only be blind if your getting into a grind blind or landing blind, if your blind for a second in the air like a 180 but you land looking forward it's not blind, why? Because if you use the blind in the air for a second as  the requirement that means that every single 360 is now a blind trick even though you land straight  looking forward..

With the fs board, Sure if you want you can get into one and angle completely straight or even more like a hurricane where it is super blind side but that's not textbook, most people who front board will never fully straighten their board resulting in never being blind side and it's a completely legit way of doing it.

Now same with 180s, if you aren't good at them and you land your 180s in a weird fakie position looking backwards fine technically it could be blind side BUT if you do a proper 180 you are landing bolts looking forward.

If you consider them blind side then anything can be, what's stopping some weird fuck from doing a kickflip  but landing in a nollie position looking backwards? that's blind as fuck, doesn't mean kickflips are a blind trick.

I know you guys are playing and all but for what that's worth, I've noticed people have gradually been stopping using blindside as a term for what it was since around the mid naughts (?) to instead start using it interchangeably with the term backside, so all the hair getting pulled in this thread is most likely just a generational thing.

People do back lips that aren’t fully perpendicular to the bar too though. Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. I back 180 and end looking at my my front foot, ie looking backwards all the time. I’ve been doing them like 30 years and this is the first I’ve heard of that not being proper. Frankly I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone not do it that way and I am being serious. Front boards that go to fakie also are blindside- from the time I get on until after the trick is over I am looking backwards.

I get it - back lips are hard and the commitment is a bit bigger because you have to ollie over the rail. But if you stick on any of these tricks you’re still falling right on you ass which I think is what makes them scary.

Now same with 180s, if you aren't good at them and you land your 180s in a weird fakie position looking backwards fine technically it could be blind side BUT if you do a proper 180 you are landing bolts looking forward.

If you consider them blind side then anything can be, what's stopping some weird fuck from doing a kickflip  but landing in a nollie position looking backwards? that's blind as fuck, doesn't mean kickflips are a blind trick.

People do back lips that aren’t fully perpendicular to the bar too though. Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. I back 180 and end looking at my my front foot, ie looking backwards all the time. I’ve been doing them like 30 years and this is the first I’ve heard of that not being proper. Frankly I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone not do it that way and I am being serious. Front boards that go to fakie also are blindside- from the time I get on until after the trick is over I am looking backwards.

I get it - back lips are hard and the commitment is a bit bigger because you have to ollie over the rail. But if you stick on any of these tricks you’re still falling right on you ass which I think is what makes them scary.

Yeah they do but that's after learning and mastering them because doing that greatly increases your chance of getting hung up and eating shit compared to landing straight, a person learning bs lips is landing blind side 99% of the time while during a fs board staying angled decreases your chance of hanging up.

"Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. " with this logic all 180s and all 360s are now blind side, any rotation of any kind on any obstacle is now blind side.

You may 180 that way, I don't and if you watch footage of people doing big 180s you will definitely see them looking forward as they ride away not backwards towards the stairs. I want to put a friendly warning here that the easiest way to hit your head is landing bs 180s looking backwards, especially down drops, look forward stay safe.

Again, if you angle the board completely straight or like a hurricane and go fakie then sure it's blind side but going out fakie isn't what makes it blind side, with that logic bs noseslides to fakie are blind side, bs crook 180s are blind side, basically everything to fakie is now blind side.
 

Of course if you stick on any trick you can eat shit BUT it's a huge difference in bail out ability when it comes to a front board vs bs lip. Hell with a front board you can just stick your front out and slide it one footed if you get scared, with a back lip that is impossible, it's either fully commit or don't commit. Not to mention going over the rail requires more force and that increases the force when you hit the rail increasing your chance of sticking.

@SlapRhaters, to your point about FS boardslides; I’m always (as in ALWAYS) looking over my shoulder to eye an exit, so they’re never actually blindside for me. In that regard, I see what you’re getting at, at least on a personal level.
All the shouting & shaming though...
I take a page from our guy Sizzla’s playbook when it comes to skating, “He who feels it, knows it.”
On the other hand, by that same logic, I still refuse to acknowledge long boarders as skaters, but that’s my own process to work through.
Hypocrisy is a bitch, but I’m sure I don’t have to tell anyone here that.

You take yourself and skateboarding so seriously it’s comedic. You and your arbitrary trick selection, your ‘truth’ that you feel applies to everyone.

University graduate there apparently learned back lips before front boards and back 180s, because back lips are the first blindside tricks you have to commit to. Very impressive. And before the age of 12. Very very impressive.

Here goes slap again, you literally have no idea what your talking about, a fs board means FRONT SIDE as in literally FACING the rail as you watch your FRONT foot go over the rail, it also doesn't apply to 180s because if you do a proper 180 you will rotate enough to be facing forward again by the time you land. A back lipslide however requires coming from the BACK SIDE with your BACK foot going over the rail.

Nice try slap has proven to be retarded again.

Lol wut. Do you not end a back lip looking forward? What kind of weird ass back lip are you doing?

how can you be so confident in something you know nothing about? Blind side is about how you get INTO a trick and has nothing to do with how you get out, with your logic even a bs board to fakie is now blind side, thanks for the laugh.

I feel like I'm the only one reading this who is on your side, and I don't even meet your standards to be called a skater, but BS 180 and FS boardslide are blind side, they are just really easy blind side tricks with minimal risk. BS lipslide is kinda an arbitrary marker, but I get what you're saying about needing to cross some threshold of scaring the shit out of yourself and powering through it to have the heart of a skater. Ultimately only a poser would get mad if someone labels them not a skater, which is really why I love your presence in this thread.
[close]

My problem with calling those tricks blind side is that they are only blind side if you do them in a weird way and it's a slippery slope because technically you can turn any trick into a blind side if you do it weird enough.

Also depends on your definition of blind. To me it's can only be blind if your getting into a grind blind or landing blind, if your blind for a second in the air like a 180 but you land looking forward it's not blind, why? Because if you use the blind in the air for a second as  the requirement that means that every single 360 is now a blind trick even though you land straight  looking forward..

Sorry if it's your favourite trick but landing looking backwards is not the way to do it. look up videos of how to do bs 180s and you'll see, frankly it's dangerous and if you had that habit on anything more then flat ground you would likely have given yourself a concussion by now.

In his own way, I think SlapRhaters wants to push us to live our best lives, and he’s therefore a good homie and may deserve tuckings in.

University graduate there apparently learned back lips before front boards and back 180s, because back lips are the first blindside tricks you have to commit to. Very impressive. And before the age of 12. Very very impressive.

Here goes slap again, you literally have no idea what your talking about, a fs board means FRONT SIDE as in literally FACING the rail as you watch your FRONT foot go over the rail, it also doesn't apply to 180s because if you do a proper 180 you will rotate enough to be facing forward again by the time you land. A back lipslide however requires coming from the BACK SIDE with your BACK foot going over the rail.

Nice try slap has proven to be retarded again.
[close]
Lol wut. Do you not end a back lip looking forward? What kind of weird ass back lip are you doing?
[close]

how can you be so confident in something you know nothing about? Blind side is about how you get INTO a trick and has nothing to do with how you get out, with your logic even a bs board to fakie is now blind side, thanks for the laugh.
[close]
Sir this is word salad and you’re now openly contradicting yourself
[close]
No i'm not, you just don't understand, You get into bs lipslides, you don't get "into" bs 180s. Again how are you so confident about something you know nothing about?
[close]
Mister you said commit to blindside- do you do back 180s without committing to them? You have an interesting way of doing tricks
[close]

Again bs 180s aren't blind side so your point doesn't make any sense.
[close]

I feel like I'm the only one reading this who is on your side, and I don't even meet your standards to be called a skater, but BS 180 and FS boardslide are blind side, they are just really easy blind side tricks with minimal risk. BS lipslide is kinda an arbitrary marker, but I get what you're saying about needing to cross some threshold of scaring the shit out of yourself and powering through it to have the heart of a skater. Ultimately only a poser would get mad if someone labels them not a skater, which is really why I love your presence in this thread.
[close]

My problem with calling those tricks blind side is that they are only blind side if you do them in a weird way and it's a slippery slope because technically you can turn any trick into a blind side if you do it weird enough.

Also depends on your definition of blind. To me it's can only be blind if your getting into a grind blind or landing blind, if your blind for a second in the air like a 180 but you land looking forward it's not blind, why? Because if you use the blind in the air for a second as  the requirement that means that every single 360 is now a blind trick even though you land straight  looking forward..

With the fs board, Sure if you want you can get into one and angle completely straight or even more like a hurricane where it is super blind side but that's not textbook, most people who front board will never fully straighten their board resulting in never being blind side.

Now same with 180s, if you aren't good at them and you land your 180s in a weird fakie position looking backwards fine technically it could be blind side BUT if you do a proper 180 you are landing bolts looking forward.

If you consider them blind side then anything can be, what's stopping some weird fuck from doing a kickflip  but landing in a nollie position looking backwards? that's blind as fuck, doesn't mean kickflips are a blind trick.
[close]
People do back lips that aren’t fully perpendicular to the bar too though. Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. I back 180 and end looking at my my front foot, ie looking backwards all the time. I’ve been doing them like 30 years and this is the first I’ve heard of that not being proper. Frankly I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone not do it that way and I am being serious. Front boards that go to fakie also are blindside- from the time I get on until after the trick is over I am looking backwards.

I get it - back lips are hard and the commitment is a bit bigger because you have to ollie over the rail. But if you stick on any of these tricks you’re still falling right on you ass which I think is what makes them scary.
[close]

"Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. " with this logic all 180s and all 360s are now blind side, any rotation of any kind on any obstacle is now blind side.

You may 180 that way, I don't and if you watch footage of people doing big 180s you will definitely see them looking forward as they ride away not backwards towards the stairs. I want to put a friendly warning here that the easiest way to hit your head is landing bs 180s looking backwards, especially down drops, look forward stay safe.
[close]
Dude no, first of all yes some part of any 360 is blindside. Front 180s you may look backwards to spot your landing but that’s about it and even then you’re mostly looking forward. Second re bs 180s - that’s not correct. Please don’t try to advise me on my favorite trick.
[close]

Slaprhaters has clearly never seen McCrank do tricks to fakie while mean mugging the obstacle as he lands and rolls away.
https://youtu.be/iglRwxXXYGQ

In the first minute he does a fs 180 lands looking forward, then he does a nollie bs 180 lands looking forward, then at 1:00 he does another fs 180 landing looking forward and then at 1:15 he does a BS 180 landing looking forward.

Nice try.

Well you shared the wrong clip so that leads me to believe you definitely didn't know what clips I was referring to.

Not sure what you think you proved, but aside from a couple people saying they see what you're 'trying' to say, no one agrees with you so that should be a little sign of how legitimate your theory is.

Again - SlapRhaters said in no uncertain terms that he thinks homosexuality is cause for the death penalty, so why are we listening to anything he says? Would you ever keep taking to a person in real life who says any of the shit he's said? Of course not. You'd laugh in his face for the stupid skate theories with everyone else within earshot, and beat his ass if he said something so incredibly homophobic.

You wreak of inexperience. The times where you know you haven't rotated enough or cleared the gap are the ones you have time to adjust for as you bail. It's the ones where you think you've done everything right and then stop out of nowhere where the damage gets done.

I back 180 and end looking at my my front foot, ie looking backwards all the time. I’ve been doing them like 30 years and this is the first I’ve heard of that not being proper. Frankly I don’t know if I’ve seen anyone not do it that way and I am being serious. Front boards that go to fakie also are blindside- from the time I get on until after the trick is over I am looking backwards.

I get it - back lips are hard and the commitment is a bit bigger because you have to ollie over the rail. But if you stick on any of these tricks you’re still falling right on you ass which I think is what makes them scary.

"Blindside to me means you spend some amount of time not able to looking at the obstacle or your landing. " with this logic all 180s and all 360s are now blind side, any rotation of any kind on any obstacle is now blind side.

You may 180 that way, I don't and if you watch footage of people doing big 180s you will definitely see them looking forward as they ride away not backwards towards the stairs. I want to put a friendly warning here that the easiest way to hit your head is landing bs 180s looking backwards, especially down drops, look forward stay safe.
[close]
Dude no, first of all yes some part of any 360 is blindside. Front 180s you may look backwards to spot your landing but that’s about it and even then you’re mostly looking forward. Second re bs 180s - that’s not correct. Please don’t try to advise me on my favorite trick.
[close]

Slaprhaters has clearly never seen McCrank do tricks to fakie while mean mugging the obstacle as he lands and rolls away.
[close]
https://youtu.be/iglRwxXXYGQ

In the first minute he does a fs 180 lands looking forward, then he does a nollie bs 180 lands looking forward, then at 1:00 he does another fs 180 landing looking forward and then at 1:15 he does a BS 180 landing looking forward.

Nice try.

The fact that you didn’t immediately know what clips I was referring to, while the other poster did, makes it pretty clear who’s ‘more of a skater’.

Welcome to slap where sitting on your ass watching videos makes you more of a skater then you know actually skateboarding??


Anyways who says i don't know? i'm just too busy proving buddy wrong and trying to prevent him from cracking his head to worry about joking around.
[close]

Well you shared the wrong clip so that leads me to believe you definitely didn't know what clips I was referring to.

Not sure what you think you proved, but aside from a couple people saying they see what you're 'trying' to say, no one agrees with you so that should be a little sign of how legitimate your theory is.

Again - SlapRhaters said in no uncertain terms that he thinks homosexuality is cause for the death penalty, so why are we listening to anything he says? Would you ever keep taking to a person in real life who says any of the shit he's said? Of course not. You'd laugh in his face for the stupid skate theories with everyone else within earshot, and beat his ass if he said something so incredibly homophobic.
I'm not homophobic at all, more chicks for me but what i will not stand is people mocking people because of who they are attracted to.

Because you're arguing semantics of trick descriptions like your point of view is fact and all of skateboarding has to change how we refer to tricks because... *checks notes... SlapRHaters says none of us are real skaters unless we can back lip a flat bar, flip into slides and grinds, and... shit, I forgot the other one because it was just bullshit that wasn't worth remembering. 

Also - you're wrong. I turn and look the way I'm going if I feel like it.

(https://i.imgur.com/addQpMV.png)

By your logic, all skaters who aren't that good don't get to identify as skateboarders. All the guys I grew up with who lived and breathed skateboarding, but also happened to suck at it, none of them were skaters, huh? I DARE you to test your asinine theory out in the real world - go to a park, gather up a few folks, give em the requirements, and then if they don't meet them make sure you walk right up to them and tell them to their face "You're not a skateboarder, sorry.". Lol. You realize there's scores of legitimate pros who couldn't meet your standard, right?

I've been skating over 30 years, taught skate lessons/camps since the 90's, been the sponsored am, helped run brands, made lots of videos, wrote for magazines... I'm telling you honestly your whole idea that a trick list should determine who is a real skater is flawed at it's very core. The sheer arrogance and snobbery of that sentiment has no place in skateboarding. It's people like you who make so many others feel unwelcome in skateboarding with your gatekeeping nonsense that's completely ego driven.

This was a nose grind 180, that you didn't pop out so you had to pivot to finish the rotation hence why you were looking backwards. It wasn't a choice more of a  necessity thats only possible off 1 foot high ledges.

You know what? Tell yourself whatever you want about how a person's body is facing during a trick, I'm not even sure what your whole point is there anyway. The trick name isn't in dispute. You just seem to be convinced that people always look the direction their skateboard is moving, when in reality most people look DOWN when doing tricks. You know, where your feet and board are. Haha. My man, it's in the shoulders, not where your head is looking.

Interrupting this bullshit to say I really like the fixed-angle-but-still-tracking shots like on that manny pad and wood box ledge. I’m old and lame and so are my friends so I don’t film. So maybe that shit is easy to do, but it’s pretty dope to me. I wish I still looked that good on a skateboard. I’m only a little older than you but I don’t got it like that anymore. Keep it up.

Ha! Thanks!

So, to do that you just film in regular HD (16:9) aspect ratio, but import it into a 4:3 timeline to edit. Then you have room to pan from side to side in post, and if you're like me you don't need skating to be HD anyway so I crop in a bit sometimes and add zooms too. When mixed with SD footage it looks great, almost like dolly shots. ^That edit was actually the sloppiest I've ever done it - I usually do it so you don't see the start or stop of the pan.

Back in high school, a kid derided me for not having scratches on my board’s tail. Asked me in a snotty voice, “Do you even skate?” I guess he thought I needed to be able to do tailslides to be a skateboarder. Even though I had scratches on my nose and wheelbase and my tail was razor sharp. I also never saw this kid with a board the whole time at school, he just hung around skateboarders. Reminds me of what I’ve been reading in this thread.

Because every time your argument dissolves you pick some other tenuous point to make.

If you're truly looking for likeminded skaters, you're never going to find it. No one is gonna agree with you 100% of the time; especially when you're unfriendly, your ideas are shifty and you insist on being aggressive.

You say you want:

well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

But you approach it like a dick, and when people point out the obvious such as:

Shit, my homey; I was considering myself a skateboarder before any of those tricks (lipslides, flip-in ledge maneuvers) were invented

you get even more unfriendly. If you're looking for the things you claim to be looking for, you've blown your shot a few times over. If you really hate this place so much, please leave.

Is the switch big fully spun or are you pivoting it? If it's a proper switch big i'll take it. Do you have the bs lip? and what is your flip in trick?

I will tell you from experience that a dope controlled pivot on frontside bigspins, either way, feels, and dare I say looks, better. If you place the back wheels down just past the 270 point and pivot it with control it's fucking G. Sometimes I do a full 180 pivot for fun. Fuck your rules.

I know you're just a troll but your whole argument is that skaters have to be able to do certain things or they're not actually allowed to call themselves skaters, so I shared my shit and mentioned the bigspins to show that I do not fit into your rule system, and there's no way in hell you're telling me I'm not a skateboarder. The other point was to keep driving home that lots of us are NOT anonymous on here and share our skating, while you only claim to skate, which is seeming less and less likely.

I'm not reading seven pages of what I've heard is a dumpster fire of a thread, but wouldn't this create a faux-hierarchy of sorts where people just post good footage to win their arguments, no matter how "bad" their opinions or positions actually are?

i'm reluctant to quote my own comment here, but upon further reflection felt compelled to come back in and say that i'm only half joking about the blood and broken bones part above...in all honesty, seeing it through injuries--especially those when you don't have health insurance, those that make it so you can not show up to work, have you laid up for a minute, etc.--is an absolute necessity, right? having to see it through your first serious injury is a pivotal point in any skateboarder's life as a skater...

i'm of course dead serious about the Slayer part, which goes without saying...

University graduate there apparently learned back lips before front boards and back 180s, because back lips are the first blindside tricks you have to commit to. Very impressive. And before the age of 12. Very very impressive.
[close]

Here goes slap again, you literally have no idea what your talking about, a fs board means FRONT SIDE as in literally FACING the rail as you watch your FRONT foot go over the rail, it also doesn't apply to 180s because if you do a proper 180 you will rotate enough to be facing forward again by the time you land. A back lipslide however requires coming from the BACK SIDE with your BACK foot going over the rail.

Nice try slap has proven to be retarded again.

Lol wut. Do you not end a back lip looking forward? What kind of weird ass back lip are you doing?

how can you be so confident in something you know nothing about? Blind side is about how you get INTO a trick and has nothing to do with how you get out, with your logic even a bs board to fakie is now blind side, thanks for the laugh.

I feel like I'm the only one reading this who is on your side, and I don't even meet your standards to be called a skater, but BS 180 and FS boardslide are blind side, they are just really easy blind side tricks with minimal risk. BS lipslide is kinda an arbitrary marker, but I get what you're saying about needing to cross some threshold of scaring the shit out of yourself and powering through it to have the heart of a skater. Ultimately only a poser would get mad if someone labels them not a skater, which is really why I love your presence in this thread.

This is actually a very reasonable take and scaring yourself is part of skating if you want it to be. I think that overcoming fear was pretty cool sometimes and I’m proud of certain times when I did. But I’m not about to become Redbull adrenaline junky or suggest you have to be to be a real skater either. I’m just fucking with slaprhaters because it’s an arbitrary line and I think those are dumb. And he’s getting all mad and it’s funny.
Nope, you'll get scared of something whether you want it or not. Want to jump some stairs? Will get scared. Hard ledge trick? Scared. Going down a steeper hill or just super fast anywhere? Scared. Flatground that spins in unpredictable ways(until you learn it, of course)? Scared. You'll overcome fear in skateboarding, doesn't matter if you're trying death defying tricks or just having fun.

And on a side note, 1 second in the air is a shit ton of blind side when you're skating something just a little bit bigger. Doing 360s on stairs is a shitshow for example, you can easily lose track of where you or the skateboard are and just go off spinning like a retard in the air.

For real, your vid was very enjoyable, Glurmpz. I wish more arguments were settled with skate clips.

I'm not reading seven pages of what I've heard is a dumpster fire of a thread, but wouldn't this create a faux-hierarchy of sorts where people just post good footage to win their arguments, no matter how "bad" their opinions or positions actually are? Aren't people who are "bad" skateboarders still entitled to have opinions?


^I agree. The reason I shared my clip was to point out to the troll poster that I break his rules for what makes a 'real skateboarder', but clearly I am very much a skateboarder. And, he was insinuating that most of us suck so it was also to counter that point. I'm not great, but I'm not some poser who's all talk on a message board. **cough cough... SlapRHaters... cough cough**

It's not that we don't get what his point is, in general - he's trying to say you have to be skilled enough at something to give an accurate opinion on it. And sure, I will trust someone's advice who's done kickflip back tails over someone who hasn't (if I'm trying that trick)... but he's taking it too far and saying that to have an opinion on ANY skating, you have to be able to do _____, ____ and _____. Nonsense, obviously. I can still listen to a friend's advice on what I'm doing wrong with my kickflip back tails, even if he can't do them - people can make legitimate observations based on their experience with skateboarding.

Anonymous message board trolls are the last people who have any foot to stand on with the gatekeeping BS.

it is funny to watch Slap spend pages entertaining SlapRhaters' arbitrary list of compulsory skate moves, when we all know that the only TRUE "skateboarders" are those of us who can roll in on vert...

confirmed fact

Phelps just take a chill pill for a second. Just because someone can't roll into the Widowmaker doesn't mean the universe will collaspe and colours won't exist anymore.

That one guy is engaging in credentialism. By his logic, someone who hasn't directed a movie can't criticize a movie. Every critique Roger Ebert wrote is meaningless.

Being a skateboarders like being an artist, it's subjective no-one can decide who is and who isn't an artist. People can decide if your good artist or a good skateboarder however. Hope this answers your question

I consider someone a skater, when a skate video gives them the same reaction as a porn vid, and they get a physical raging hardon or wet pussy when watching someone kickflipping a 14+ stair set.

When all you can think about/care about  is skateboarding. You know it when you become it and you can see it in others. "When the  bug bit them", so to speak.

This is truer than many might like to admit, but only for skaters of a certain age. Nowadays plenty of jocks are decent skateboarders, to my lasting disgust.
