That sounds like such a good setup. would you mind uploading a pic? I know it is a bit of a hassle.
still sad I slept on all the auby label decks, they were sick and auby and john are worth supporting. That bullnose they used to make, still fiending for that!

Since you asked, here you go

Anyone ever ridden a heroin curb crusher? Considering one of those in 10.25, with a pair of 215s. Can already slappy my regular ass board daily and nightly but just want something cool for crusing to the shops and roasting the grim Australian curbs.

Aussie curbs are hard to slappy...square, tall and most street slope down into the curb so you got that shit angle to work with too.

we finally found a good parking lot with ok curbs, but only lasted an hour before security kicked us out...by that time all of us had managed to do 1 or 2 slappys.
[close]

Yeah Australian street curbs are brutal. Can rock a few newer ones but all the older streets are no go. Mainly hang out at carparks during this time of the year.

hey man...where abouts in aus are you based?

Thought it was just me, the curbs in Singapore are really tall and square, not like the beautiful red ones you see the pros in LA skating. I managed to find 1 curb slab at a carpark, it's pretty short but I'll skate anything at this point in time.
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

I’m so glad I live in California lmao, having access to perfect painted curbs almost anywhere you go is so nice.

that thing is probably a beast. do you notice a big difference with the 97a wheels? in softness versus the crust?

Honestly i can't really tell the difference..seems like the slimeball vomits has some offset. Like if i put the graphics side out, it's kinda flush with the side of the board. If i put the  blank side out, it's not flush with the board

Well took a while but fiddled around with my setup and finally got my first slappy. I toyed with the idea of getting a dedicated slappy setup with 215's and a 10 inch board, turns out just ballsing up and going at it works much better, haha. I did switch to some F4 conical fulls and do find they're way easier to get into than my old V3 STFs. Beyond stoked, such a good feeling.

Was just messing around and got it on film, would be really appreciative for any critique

you got on fine. Just to make coming off easier, try to avoid having your shoulders open to the direction you’re going. As you get on the curb square up a bit (this will make getting on easier to) and continue rotating as if you were carving a bowl. You’ll stay aligned and it won’t be as awkward getting off

Ahhhh, you're missing a key ingredient... cuffed pants

But, for real.  Just keep charging at the curb and it'll eventually click.  I ended up just spending an entire session focusing on slappies and it eventually clicked.

No critique necessary. Your feet positioning looks perfect. I'm not sure how it works but I know I've done a good backside slappy when my tail actually slaps on the exit... What cucktard said is correct. think of it almost as carve grind in a pool shallow end. Bend your knees and carve in and out. Don't be afraid to go a bit faster and see what happens. Sometimes, with speed and a loose approach you can end up doing all kinds of unplanned moves... 180 out, into lip slide and so on... watch barker barret.

I have been playing with em since it seems I’m the only dude that can’t slappy. I started on a 4” curb with nobody around because that shits embarassing, learning the slap into fs and bs. I did find that a wider board and looser trucks makes it easier for me. I don’t slappy on my 8.25, I use my 8.5 with Thunder 149s if it’s slap-time. I still can’t do them every time, which is lame, and I sure do eat shit a lot.

The fuck, haha. That's crazy bro, thankyou. Skate there so often and wondered who had done it. Hope you don't mind.

Did you rub brick it out of interest? It's like butter. So hard to find a good curb spot in Adelaide. I'll make sure to clean it clean and respectful haha.

Guys who do a ton of slappy grinds. Do you setup boards specifically with slappy in mind and if so, what’s your setup?

I ride Ace 55s with an 8.8 board and 54mm Spitfires...

I'm bashing my head against a wall learning this shit, but it's super fun.  I have a Blind Gonz reissue with 169s and 56mm and I can get up on some decent sized curbs, staying on them is the trick.

Nice

I'm still pretty picky on my curbs. No idea how dudes ride short square curbs the way they do slopers
[close]

Yeah, in Australia its nearly all tall & square.  Sucks.

I'm in australia too... I have no problem with bigger or square curbs.. Its really about the angle

Dang this thread blew up since I was last around.

When I made it I really had just started learning slappies and shit. Been skating a curb behind my work a lot and have dialed in my setups now. Frontside slappy is second nature now.

Pretty much anything over 8.75 with 159+ trucks feels good. I have that and a Zip Zogger with 215s now.  8) Got 101 53mm tablets on it and 99 53mm Skate Like a Girl Radials on the 8.75. No riser on either. Blue medium hard bushings with the nut level with the kingpin. Single rail on each. I’m 33 and hurt a lot, so besides skating a box or QP we also have behind work, it’s basically just curbs!

Can slappy with any setup, but damn does it feel good on a wide, surfy feeling board.

I’ll post some pics!
