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

good slappy setup would be like an 8.5+ board indy 159's and small ass wheels

I personally just skate my regular board. 8.5 board venture 5.8 and 53 mm f4 lock ins.

I do a ton of slappy grinds but I dont have a setup for specifically slappys, just ride what your comfortable with.

I made one just for kicks/covid boredom.

Krooked Worrest Slick Twin Tail
Tensor Mag lights
Spitfire Lockins

It all works the way I intended, tho I think lockins are just a gimmick, they don't feel any more locked in than a radial slim or bones V2/V5 and those are at-least all reversible.

The twin tail aspect of a slappy setup is great (really any setup) as you don't have to worry about it once you get used it and truck wise you get even disbursement of grooves ;)

same^ don't usually do slappy setups but i saw a krooked board that looked cool and set one up.

krooked dan's rig
thunder 151 standard
spitfire f4 classics 56mm, spitfire cheapshots
pig rails

board is fun as fuck, slappys feel amazing, trucks turn really good and I'm not getting any wheelbite surprisingly without risers, trucks are stock. low-key think thunders are the best slappy truck if indys aren't your thing.

Why would you ollie onto a curb if you could just effortlessly ride onto it.

They are delicate yet aggressive, nimble yet violent. They are all of skating on a feature accessible to all.


Plus, they are fun.

Can you slappy? Super fun satisfying grinds that are relatively easy.

Not sure if this is the right place but landed my first backside slappy. I have been trying for years and gave up because front side was easier but, I think the secret was to twist my hips to get the back truck on.

turning your hips more helped me learn them, I also found that I have to have more weight on my front foot when doing slappy 50 50s

Seen some people say smaller wheels help, not sure what they mean by smaller. I imagine dudes that do slap pies riding 58mm on a normal day so maybe 54 is small for them. 😂


I cant do slappies but I was trying to with some like 40mm wheels and i was actually getting into it sometimes but now that I got bigger new wheels im not getting as close so maybe small wheels do help

Yeah but the reason im heavier on my front foot is so I can get my back truck on, I slap my front truck on and my back truck is just along for the ride.

I find bigger wheels are easier to get o and lock on.

You don’t drive off road with tiny tires, do you? You wanna roll up a bit.

I don't put my weight on my front leg when doing fs or bs slappys. all in the back leg, front leg just guides you into the initial truck bash and the back leg does all the work, you'll get a longer, more controlled slappy that way. I've been working on doing them switch a little more consistently and I notice alot of the time I'll have my weight on my front foot and have to do this ugly fakie pivot out of them, been working on fixing that. when you're first learning them the trick doesn't make sense so alot of people put their front foot on the nose or lean forward too much, it works but you can get pitched pretty bad if you slip out. work on leaning back and getting into them with your feet back a little more, if you miss the curb or slip out you can just kick the board out instead of slamming that way.

also I don't think small wheels really help with them or fuck them up, but really big wheels definitely make you lock in too much, anywhere from 53-56mm is the sweet spot for wheels imo.
gotta say spitfire classics are nice because of the rounded sidewall, you can roll right up some of the steeper curbs if you get your angle right.  but your average parking block it isn't as important, just bash and lock on. curbs are fun.

Maybe im lying to myself. I feel like my front foot is always heavier and my slappies are just fine.

You guys are too nice. I had to take a break from all forms of social media. Silly to cancel a Slap account but it was an all or nothing type reaction. Thank the Lord Lee Ralph for skateboarding.

I get it, I've focused Instagram (my only other social) 3 times before. Welcome back.

I see that Roger scrapes off the wax of the Venice curbs. When do you know it’s time to scrape the was off?

Been trying out my various set-ups on slappy, and my cruiser is the easiest to rip them by a long shot.

Black Label Auby 10-inch, older Indy 169s, and the magic ingredient

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.

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.

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!
