When you get butthurt about people dissing Chris Joslin.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It’s the courage to continue that counts.

I’ve been skating for nearly 9 months now after a very long hiatus and doubt I’ll ever be on the same wave length as people who stuck with it from a young age. I feel like a kooky mid-20s grandpa trying to live out his tweenage fantasies
[close]

told this before but I “quit” for 7 years after doctors told me to and relearned it all at 27. I’m better at 32 than I was at 16 (low impact tho of course). Have fun. Also in my years off I always daydreamed about skating, saw spots, did imaginary fingerboarding on the table if you know what I mean. It’s for life.
Good work, now go watch street dreams

When a non-skater asks, "Do you skateboard?" and they lie and say, "No."

I shall not attempt further to define the kinds of material I understand to be embraced within that shorthand description (of a "skateboarder"), and perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it, and the motion picture involved in this case is not that.

That is a “hard-core” response. I’m guessing you know it when you see it? Well played.

when that person has a skateboard
that it use
a lot to ride around,

or do tricks on

and is on slap posting

and needs grip, bolts, shoes on the regs
and other things
like a new deck,
each month or every few weeks

so i was checking new gear
and shit
at my local to get a new deck
and i said "how much for this here old ass 917 deck"

it had some car on it, but i don't know really

and the dude would say fifty, with grip

i said i only have 40
just bought a dimebag minutes before but now
so i only got 40

and that board is old
so warped it looks like
the arm of a ceiling fan
so the dude says alright and hands me the deck, with the
seranwrap still on and shit

and i rip the wrap off
and feel the texture
that is like wood, but with more ridges, on the top ply than the smoother bottom
and how i will put grip on it soon

and that board is warped
it might be nice for 360 flips
or suck to kickflip
nobody knows, it's a mystery

and how that will destroy my shoes
and how my feet stink after skating

like cheeses after midnight

and so i am hungry and
looking for my s-one helmet everywhere
to make some dinner in it
with mashed potato, cheese
and spring onions

probably hot sauce, too

because true skaters don't use plates
you use your unused helmets, dipshit
tape up the holes, you dummy
unless you dig stains and leakage

and also i got two tall boys to drink

anyways

the street is nice
where the shop is
the dogs never treat me wrong
when i'm packing treats

because i know i'm a skaterboarderer

they don't fuck with me

You have to have bs lipslides on flatbars, at least one kickflip in ledge trick and atleast one stylish switch flip trick.

It may sound random but if you've never experienced the mental battle of committing to bs lipslides then you aren't a skater.


Basically i don't consider 99% of slap to be skaters which is sad considering my low standards.

When they can consistently post on slap about how people who post on slap cannot skate.

Someone is a skater when they start looking at everything is something to skate and constantly looking for spots.

My first visit here was an attempt to find like minded skaters like myself and have well thought out and educated conversations with each other.

Instead what i encountered disgusted me, people with 2000 posts, signed up for 8 years who have admitted they never learnt to tre flip which would be fine if 90% of their posts weren't taking shit on skaters who are way more dedicated at it then they have ever been.

Then we also have these guys saying retarded shit like " nollie nose blunts are easier then blunt slides even though i've never even learned anything but a board slide "


I am that piece of reality in a giant cloud of delusion. You may not like me, i may not like you but the truth needs be spoken from someone who's actually experienced the topic and not just a delusional crowd of people who live it vicariously.


Like listen to the responses to this thread " the first time falling in public " Ok so someone who hasn't even learned how to ride a skateboard is a skater because they ate shit infront of a crowd? That's retarded, an actual skater would say something like " a person who's fallen skating by themselves 1000 times and gotten up to land the trick"

a) the first time you get so scared on your board you accidentally get a boner, the pro's call it a "Fear Boner", you'll learn to love it

b) anytime you step on your board, smile and realise this horrible, unrelenting evil place we call planet Earth gets so much less terrible when you're skating

c) when you rip a dope sticker off the park ramp and put it on the back of your board but it rips off 2 days later and you superglue it to you dad's desk where you secretly watch porn near where your parents are sleeping

Yes WE are the delusional people.  How dare us lowly peons ever comment on someone’s skating if we aren’t exceptional as well.   

Using your logic, since I have a master’s degree and you do not, I can critique your education and intelligence since you haven’t struggled, strived or shown the same dedication to an education as I have therefore you are stupid and cannot call yourself educated especially in my presence.  Anything you say to the contrary will show me how jealous and inferior you feel/are

Okay, but would you believe me if I told you that posters like you come and go all the time; and never cause any changes cause you waste your time putting us down until you get burnt and focus?

Believe it or not, we actually enjoy being old dorks. There's nothing delusional about having fun. You don't have to stick around, but we're not gonna stop being shalomies.

That’s exactly what I’m saying.  You are disgusted by slap, haha.  I, and the majority of people on here, have let you down... and for that I am deeply sorry.

I wonder if there is some kind of VIP skateboarding forum you could join.  That way you could be with your people and won’t have to put up with our pleb bullshit any longer.

Yes WE are the delusional people.  How dare us lowly peons ever comment on someone’s skating if we aren’t exceptional as well.   

Using your logic, since I have a master’s degree and you do not, I can critique your education and intelligence since you haven’t struggled, strived or shown the same dedication to an education as I have therefore you are stupid and cannot call yourself educated especially in my presence.  Anything you say to the contrary will show me how jealous and inferior you feel/are

When did i say you have to be exceptional? This is your problem, if you ever actually put in any decent amount of effort to skating, the thing y'all claim to love you would realize learning bs lips, flip in ledge tricks and a nice switch flip isn't exceptional at all.

Your logic here is pathetic and it shows that education means nothing when it comes to your intelligence. First off anyone can go to school for 4 years as literally all it takes it showing up, skating for 4 years requires showing up AND dealing with 4 years worth of falls and injuries. Skateboarding is learned by yourself, give a new skater the exact advice on how to tre flip and it won't help him at all as he has to learn it himself, on the other hand give a student a formula and he can instantly put it to use by himself. There are also no cheat codes in skateboarding, if you can't do something you can't do it, you can't just copy the work or look it up on google and instantly have the trick like with education. Also to finish it off, i've never said anyone has to master skateboarding to state their opinion or have it matter, just have a decent bag of tricks so your talking from experience, aka in your school terms you should have at least passed grade 6 english class before you start talking shit on someone who's graduated high school.

I’ve been skating for nearly 9 months now after a very long hiatus and doubt I’ll ever be on the same wave length as people who stuck with it from a young age. I feel like a kooky mid-20s grandpa trying to live out his tweenage fantasies

I'm all about the welcome mat for all stripes and skill levels, whoever gets that little childlike thrill from rolling. But from your old posts (that you deleted), you ain't it.
