means you need to skate more homie!   that slappy nose slide in the other thred all you need to do is stand wide stance foot on the nose and tail. go fast and push up on top of what ever you are attacking.

save up you need a bigger board than a 8 dude you are not 12
your right Iím 12.5 lmao

So anyways, how do yíall like to make non-painted curbs grindable? Enamel, lacquer, wax, combo?

Got a perfect curb that was waxed like last year. Trying to make it nice. Maybe theyíll painted it after we fuck it up and make it al black.

I've broken the 2 rub bricks I've purchased while breaking in crusty ditch lips and poorly finished riding surfaces in that ditch. The dust really fucks your nose up

Find a rock or an actual brick to bash down big chunks or crack off chips so you save the finishing work for your rub brick. Go easy on the spray to, that stuff gets glassy fast

it said to learn how to tie for a reason.
This is all structured as a trap.
Tied by those who know the fundamentals.

I also have a 10.something 15wb Blockhead reissue with 169ís and pink 56mm 97a Slimeballs with Mob and Super Reds.  Probably gonna ride the Blockhead tonight.

Iím getting close to figuring out backside hurricanes on curbs so hopefully I make some progress tonight.

you get that  backside hurricane? it rained right when i got off  >:(

Adult life got in the way and I had to spend the evening compiling documents with the Mrs. for a thing we had to deal with today. 

I was gonna skate tonight but my stomach has been fucked the past week so Iím currently drinking 8oz of Gatorade/Miralax every 15 minutes.  Tonightís gonna be fun lol

Gonna skate my brains out this weekend, I really need it.

the wider/looser the truck the easier the climb. a little bit of a riser is good idea to

My slappy setup is 9" at the widest, 8.4" at the narrowest, with rails.
I usually skate 8.25" boards, which also works great for slappies, but I love to take my slappy setup on sunday morning.
Possibilities are everywhere, search and enjoy.

Iíve never rocked a riser on any of my slappy setups.  Thatís also why I never go over 56mm.

Yeah Iím on 54mm and I havenít found the need for risers. I also wax my wheel bite spots beforehand too, which might help.

Years ago an older friend told me ďwheelbite is your skateboards way of telling you that youíre not going fast enough.Ē

I donít think thatís completely true. Sometimes you just need risers.

Iíve known pool dudes that ride 60ís with no risers and sloppy loose trucks.

Go faster.

because going faster equals wheel height non existent. Thank you Einstein.

I donít know the physics behind it because I have a high school education.

I just know when Iím hauling ass I donít get wheelbite and I hate riser pads.

If youíre riding something crazy big like 63s you probably need risers though.

risers arenít that bad once you get used to them.

I usually fs slappy my life away, but the other day I made myself do some backside. It's not very natural for me, but I'm going to keep making myself do them. I have slightly worn down 59mm wheels on 159s. Gonna pick up some 1/8th" risers because I'm getting a lot of wheel bite.
