USELESS WOODEN TOY BANTER / Re: PJ back on Es?
« Last post by Sila on Today at 01:39:51 AM »
If it's Penny I find it a bit depressing. Es is very far from being what it was 20 years ago and Penny needs a sponsor that can actually pay him properly.

Are we talking about American 'left' or actual left?

USELESS WOODEN TOY BANTER / Re: Favorite 'non-trick' trick
« Last post by fs1/2cab on Today at 01:09:28 AM »
Anyone else likes to do wheelies to fakie on transition?
The same as a rock to fakie, but without the rock.
Just wheelie up and down as close to the coping as possible. A bit scary, but really fun.

Oh and side rocks at quarters, my homies think they are rad but I never counted that as a real trick.

Not breathing when I’m trying tricks.

Oh man, I do something like this.  I hold my breath when I pop.  Every time.  I tried to fix it and exhale on the pop but that just fucked up what form I've got.  I've decided to live with it.

One thing I don’t like about many of the leftists is that they automatically assume that I’m unable to practically wipe my own ass because of my skin color. They automatically write me off as a disenfranchised victim, when I’ve achieved more than they ever have. I literally had some white woman tell me that it’s harder for “someone like me” to vote because of my skin, and I had to break it to her that I know how to fill in a bubble on a ballot and pop it into the mail.

I know we’re all skateboarders so there’s an equal footing amongst us, but ppl need to think before they tell a black person they can’t do something because of their skin color. Not only is it disheartening and fundamentally wrong, it’s the heads side of the coin whereas the heads side is for the uneducated backwoods racists.

I hate pandering “leftists“ like that. I wouldn‘t really call that woman‘s action leftism. To me it is a type of racism.

Never leaving the meet-up spot for years, basically staying in my comfort zone (and not even a huge, perfect skatepark either).

Shoes & Gear / Re: Vegan skate shoes

Just got a pair of Sheep Calli Vulc X in the mail. Not crazy about the pastel pink, so I got plans to dunk them in some black Rit dye. They fit TTS and are comfortable

Also, I gotta say, shopping for vegan skate shoes locally has been fucking impossible. I got cool guyed from the owner of the local shop. Something along the lines of “you’re wasting the already dead animal”. Dude, I just wanted to exchange my currency for goods, why you gotta make it weird
that sucks, even if you don’t understand personally why someone would want vegan shoes, you should still be sympathetic for the desire to at least have options. Like I don’t necessarily agree with Halal practices, but I can at least see why Muslim people would want halal options...
I say you rock those sheep pink!!!

ace 55 classics, wobbly af up front with a busted pivot cup, stock in the back. 1/8 riser
oj mini super juice
zealous
jessup


i gotta say that smaller wheels on a big popsicle definitely makes life a lot easier for popping it, it just makes the whole thing a little bit less hefty. its working well so far on this polar, as well as the wheelbase, being a nice inbetween for transition and street, feeling long enough to be stable but short enough to still pop decently if i'm feeling adventurous.  :)
