Graphics simply flakeing off a deck. Worst thing to happen to a deck.

I just set up new wheels and bearings and it makes my board sound waterlogged. I hate it.

new anything is the worst. i will grant that sometimes a new board can be nice. i love a thrashed setup (shoes included).

My local is a sort of "V" shape, with the entrance at the pivot, the "street" section to the left, and the bowl is up a bank to the right. Unless you hit the "big gap" at the wide part of the "V" (the gap is fuckin gimmick), you can only make it one side to other using the bank and going through the pivot. Which a peeve of the design itself.

More so, groms will play skate at the pivot of the "V", right at the bottom of the only bank to get from side to side. Every time I go there these kids are flipping hospital flips and shooting out from trying triple nightmare underflips at the bottleneck.

I guess games of skate are a pet peeve of mine too. Probably cause I have awful flatground game, but playing skate seems asinine and the exact opposite of why I like skating in the first place. "oh I can do more tricks than you!" Maybe I'm just jaded \_(ツ)_/

Going past 90 getting into a fs nose slide, sticking and getting pitched, or it's more evil twin, popping too close and getting into an unplanned fs board slide of death.

Going to a new local and missing my first couple warm up kickflips and having some young drunk guy see it as an opening to come try and "teach me how to kickflip." Shit is annoying since mine is usually nicer than theirs anyway. Also you're sloppy shwasted at 1p on a Tuesday my guy, I don't envision a skateboarding love affair happening between us.
