 front side slap is the most aggressive thing you can do on a skateboard.

I ride 56mm 97a Slimeballs on my curb setups.  I have a 8.8 14.75 wb black label with 159ís and an old Blockhead Reissue 10.something 15 wb with 169ís. 

Loose trucks. 

The biggest key is to keep your body low/knees bent and pull your body up into the slappy.

Have fun!

I set up an old board with reissue Slimeballs. It seems more difficult to slappy with bigger (wider) wheels since you have to travel farther into the curb to reach your trucks.

Your slimeball reissues u are riding, are they the 78 duro 60 mm or the smaller harder 97 duro or something, and is it harder to do slappies with softer wheels?  I dont even really fuck wit em since Im not too confident in throwing myself at chunky canadian winter-fucked curbs cuz they just seem to grab my trucks.  I realize faster is better but ive just stuck so many times on the unpainted shitty curbs I got round my way that I have pretty much ignored getting slappies down, though Im gonna push myself to get some in this summer cuz the odd one I have pulled off are fun.  I am usually fucking around on my cruiser setup when I try the odd slappy, prolly cuz its really a setup I dont feel confortable jumping at all due to my super soft bouncy wheels, high trucks, riser pads, and lack of skill definately comes into play

I learned slappies on 149s w/50mms. It doesnít matter what size your wheels are. The most important thing is speed and commitment. Iím usually almost (if not fully) perpendicular when I come at the curb. I haul ass and at the last second compress, carve and smack that curb hard as fuck while leaning back farther than I ever thought I should. Almost like youíre gonna slip out and land on your ass. Hitting the curb brings your weight over the board again(I think). Donít use your tail/nose. Feet over the bolts and when you carve donít carve like a bitch. Throw that back hip into the curb as hard as you can.  It took me from fully flared to pretty sweet to learn them so donít give up.

Oh and donít forget to land and roll away itís that easy (I hate when trick tips say that shit.) nothing on a skateboard is easy

I found a really nice curb in my area and I want to know what itís made of. Itís a very sandy type concrete and rough and it grinds good and makes your trucks wear down fast. Does anyone have any idea? Should I start a thread and ask or does anybody here know?

If youíve already been grinding it, you might not have to brick it, but wonít hurt. Get a brick, rub it down like some vandal and then spray it with clear flat enamel or lacquer to look even more like a vandal. Let it sit for a day, maybe put some more coats on it. Bonus points if itís during daylight business hours.

Not necessary a "Slappy setup", just a second one that I'm putting together since I'll be going to a place with really rough streets, also the fact that Prague is covered by cobblestone like on 96%
This will go with some Ricta Clouds 57mm 86a, reds and I'm not sure if 55 or 66 Ace's.



Hopefully I won't need risers.

i hear the 66 and also the 215's have like a wired slow then fast turn. like they are almost too wide for the pivot of the bace plate to give a fluid turn.  if that makes any scene. i have never had a set tho

I have a barely used set. They're really slow on rougher ground probably because the of shape. They won't ride over anything nicely like a wider wheel would. Never managed to try slappies with them. Threw them in my extra parts bin pretty much after riding them around for a bit.

Yeah I figured there like that.

There would be a strange contact especially if they are mad soft.

I had these bones Ditch tech formula wheels once. They were the shit for crash trick.

Indyís or Thunders. Indyís for stability and strength. Thunders for comfort and feeling. Canít feeble on Indyís but can on thunders because of the axel.

Any old thing worked well for me except venture feather lites. I have broken thunder king pins but it was rare.

If I was to make a board specifically for slappy I would pick ace tracker or Indy maybe a gullwing if I could get a pair of og sidewinder in Golden Apple green.

The heavier the board, the easier it is imo. I have a Powell reissue with 159s and 58mm 80hd and it just feels easier and better than my normal 8.12 deck.

I'm on 9.25 (tapers a bit so maybe 9" average, it's a Welcome Golem shape) deck, 169mm Indys, 54mm Conicals, and medium hard Indy bushing running kinda loose (I'm 175 lbs). Been working great since I started this thread.
