Your skateboarding pet peeves?
« on: July 28, 2020, 08:09:27 AM »
My personal pet peeve isnĒghost popĒ (when you do a trick without popping the tail on the ground). It angers me when it happens
Another thing is fucking pebbles. Hit one of those, and donít see it coming, you can get folded.
Thatís all I got for mine for now but wanna year other people too

Ghost pop is the worst.
Homies who only skate the same park all day every day and wonít go skate street with you.
People at skateparks who put their phones, drinks/food, baby carriages, etc on the ground and get mad when a board inevitably flys out and hits their shit.
Dropping my shoulder a bit on landings so I stick the trick bolts but end up stepping off. This only really happens to me on bs heel, nollie fs bigspin, bs bigspin, bs flip.
People who suck at skating but try to give you trick tips on tricks they canít even do themselves
Posers
Unaware people at the skatepark who just walk and sit around in high traffic spots
People who bring remote controlled cars to skateparks
15/16 year old ďtoughĒ guys who try to fight ever scooter kids mom at the skatepark
Pretenders
People who clowned me for skating in middle school and high school now asking me to teach them how to Ollie
Girls who clowned me for skating in highschool but now are getting in to it because itís fashionable and they discovered Leticia on Instagram.
Shitty art and editing in full lengths
Strobeck zoom (I do like his editing tho)
Shitty parts using up good songs

If you feel the urge to write some long, boring, self-congratulatory essay on here maybe just go jerk off instead.

The "cool" local that thinks he should get to snake everyone and never wait his turn.

The "cool" local that goes and does whatever trick I'm trying.

When i'm on a solo sesh without a tool and a bolt comes loose and rattles.

Shinners on warm up tricks.

Being around 'serious' skaters with no sense of fun/humour

Squeaky trucks

Phones always being out

People over the age of 21 that still say, "buttery," when describing anything skate-related. Hearing that shit gives me secondhand embarrassment.
The Strobek face-zoom is also unforgivable.

For me - griptape that isn't completely black; none of that cut out, Shake Junt, spray or art jobs, piss colored griptape, plain black 100%, maybe a line near the tail if I'm feeling adventurous. I know some people can get really creative with their grip jobs, but I'm a stickler that way.
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"?

If that happens, they're really not your homies. The remote control crowd puts homicidal thoughts into my head.

i fucking hate ghost pop

my nose/tail is worn down by almost an inch, but i can't afford a new deck right now. Every trick I do I barely pop and as a result the board doesn't stick to my feet good and even though I can still land my tricks, I hate the way they feel all sloppy and shitty.

I don't even know if its my board, it could just be me sucking balls. You could potentially still pop it, i mean, theres still wood beyond the bolts right? I know kids who can skate the most squared off shit and they pop their tricks just fine.

Anybody know any tips or causes for ghost pop?

I try and skate my shit till itís pretty razored, especially now with everything going on. Usually when Iím getting ghost pop itís because Iím getting ahead of myself and thinking about the next step of the trick instead of focusing on the pop. Usually Iíll focus on popping the tail instead of what happens next and it corrects itself. Sometimes itís a sign that thereís something wrong with your setup since your timingís getting mixed up, maybe lower trucks or smaller wheels. usually itís mental though.

A lot of it has to do with the leverage of your board and the amount of time it takes your nose/tail to hit the ground. Lower trucks, smaller wheels, and mellower kicks can help. Sometimes popping from deeper in the pocket or closer to the nose (depending on the setup) helps.

Being old. Stuck in this old body doing old tricks instead of the new new circus tricks.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

you need to stop watching the "new" kids. it's like listening to the "new" music, it's fucking garbage , has no soul, and has no sustenance. watch the shit that you grew up on like ethan fowler, julien, cards, parts, old tom penny, etc. that kind of skating will be infinitesimally better than anything that is being put out right now. i guaran-fucking-tee it. nowadays, people are only focused on doing tricks rather than just skating. there are exceptions but they are far and few in between.

Decks with tails on the smaller length side especially with a huge nose and boards where the tail is REALLY less angled than the nose. Throws of my timing and pop feel completely and just looks weird to me in general.

When i don't land something perfectly and i still get props for it, yeah sure a switch flip bs tail bigspin out is a hard trick but don't give me props until i've done it 100% perfect.

When youíve gone skating with someone a few times, you know their name. Then you randomly run into them and pretend we donít know each other.

Assholes at my park refuse to throw their trash which attracts loads of birds whick poop all over the park when I go there in the morning. Having bird shit on your deck and wheels can ruin a session.

People that spit on the concrete around where I'm skating, especially when there's dirt or grass a few feet away. I don't give a shit if you spit but ffs don't do it where someone could step in it or roll through it.

Dudes that message me to skate constantly but never show up, then bitch about no one ever inviting them out to skate, or when I've told someone we're heading out to a different park or spot and they inevitably ask for a lift what time we're meeting up to leave, and they end up asking me to wait for them coz they're only just about to leave home when it's already 30 fucking minutes past the time I wanted to be there. Or picking someone up and having to wait a half hour for them to be ready, it's fuckin ridiculous, like cunt you knew we were on our way, and you said you were ready when I left.

This one guy at my local who's obsessed with nollie/switch tricks. He straight refuses to learn normal tricks and shits on them for some reason, and can't even land majority of the tricks he tries and blames it on some injury. He's like a caricature of a poser idiot that talks shit about everyone else's style and trick selection while going on about his nollie hard flips except no one's ever seen him land one out of a thousand attempts and he's too sore to do it right now.

The biggest one is overly waxed ledges and rails. I lost a majority of my tricks around 2013-2014 when the next gen started putting wax on everything and my paranoia of slipping out got heavy.

I don't mind people smoking weed at the park/spot but don't turn it into just a smoke sesh.

Agree with the spitting on the park, i instantly call those guys out and first i tell them you do it again and i'm beating the fuck out of you, then i say that if i end up riding over any spit i'm truck fucking the shit of you. This has always worked in the past but if it doesn't work i wouldn't be afraid to go to my car and grab my gun.
