Im glad I can find a forum like slap that isn't a ghost town. Any other forums aside from slap you frequent?

The skateboarding subreddit is so lame, it's nothing but teenagers and 45 year olds that skated for a month in 1992 making rodney mullen references. It's also kind of odd as discussion is completely banned, you're only allowed to post videos and photos of yourself for people to jerk you off over. Like who made that decision, just go on instagram for that. I actually made a discussion focused subreddit in the hope of getting some skate related content on there that wasn't completely cringe but I gave up 5 minutes after creating it and it's still sitting there with 0 posts or followers.

Other than that ukskateforum.co.uk is good for the brits even though everyone on there is about 65

Eh it’s not really worthy of a full “circlejerk” thread. Things on Reddit worth making fun of probably have such thread on Reddit already. Ex. r/guitarcirclejerk is amazing

r/skateboardcirclejerk already exists, it's actually quite funny at times compared to some of the meme insta accounts

I haven't bothered with it in a while, but the bodybuilding.com misc section can be pretty funny to browse.

People on reddit will write full ass scholarly essays about Rodney Mullen as if they're the first ones to know who he is.

Music and production forums. Was a big Shroomery user years ago aswell as other drug/psychedelics/plant forums. I lurk on ukskateforum every now and then but it's mostly older guys that have one session a month or not at all.

Happy, sorry

Decent at best, but at its worst it's one of the nastiest places on the internet. Some real deep sea creatures with glowing appendages and translucent skin using that forum. I'm like James Cameron in his sub, i go there to gawk at the freaks and monsters

Beachgrit and stab mag comments section

beachgrit is weird to me, everything is written in this half sarcastic tone it seems. feels like the contributors never really want to take a particular stand so it ends up feeling bull shitty.

reddit skateboarding is indeed pretty lame, but its like the rest of reddit: get circle jerking to whatever the topic at hand is, or gtfo. the fact that discussion is banned makes no sense for sure.

i liked middleageshred, never posted but its the kind of place where you could nerd out over the merits of different knee pads. its dead though.

really the internet is mostly dead to me, i don't like social media, there are probably decent blogs out there still but have no idea how to find them. youtube is aight when it isn't trying to feed me weird covid19 denial or various right wing lunacy.

Reddit fucking sucks ass, every time I go through for gear reviews or something similar to do research on this that that  and the other I can't find here.

 It's a bunch of has-beens that show off their whack setup with wimpy line's and kooky circus trick's, who the fuck cares?! Or it's a hey should I get this one with this product too?!

Make up your own mind and stop trying to ask for validation, it's pathetic these day's kid's and some adult's can't handle making a decision without validation.

Never look at skate shit on reddit but browse through Home and Popular on a daily basis for general news and the wide range of other interesting/entertaining shit.  It’s also been super helpful when trying to learn about other random topics I get into.. music, surfing, stocks, brewing, whatever.  Don’t get the hate on it.  If I want to read a Slap-like forum I go on Slap.

Lately QAnonCasualties is morbidly interesting. I browse mostly news and random topics about podcasts or other niche stuff. I don't really get involved in discussions over there though.

Reddit seems good for a lot of things, par skateboarding. So many cringy clips of tripple flips out of a quarter to flat and never any interesting discussions...too safe?

I mainly go on ukskateforum other than here, although I miss Sidewalk forums in their hey day as that was like a British slap.

Same here, albeit I used a different pseudonym. Used to be funny getting some abuse for not even saying anything stupid, you'd get some proper dick 'eds rinsing you or you'd have Simon Woodstock +'ing you for some comment about stances, like I did.

Slap
Surfer mag forum
12oz prophet

All still have some traffic. Slap is surprisingly more active than both and 12oz was huge at one point in time.

I fear a lot of valuable information will be lost as the old car forums die off

Reddit is a good site for obscure hobbies and craftsmanship, for example I got into making homemade pizzas because of Reddit. Everything else is too bloated and hard to follow.
