Pay it forward/freecycle gear
« on: February 19, 2021, 06:04:58 PM »
As proposed by @funeral_tuxedo , a thread where you can post used/spare/extra gear that you have to either give away locally or send for the cost of shipping (be sure to specify in your post). Free stuff only, if you are trying to sell just make your own thread.

If @admin or another mod sees fit maybe this can get pinned.

Finally, before I forget, I have a set of 56mm Loophole v-cuts with a lot of life if someone in philly wants them. I will post pics later. Prefer not to ship.

Ok

thanks for making this thread @FrozenIndustries

EDIT: the half cab pros found a home with @concerned_parent and I got to give pets to their adorable puppy. I'll post more soon. Thanks Pals.

I've donated tons of gear to Bridge To Skate before. They do good work and the person running it, Chantelle, is a really great person.

http://bridgetoskate.org/

https://www.instagram.com/bridgetoskate/

They use gear to help out low income/underdeveloped areas. Broken decks are used for art purposes.

This would be a good place to send stuff to if you have trouble trying to get rid of extra gear but don't want to throw it in the trash.

That's super helpful, I know some people would prefer a rout like this so it is good to have resources like this listed.

Use your discretion, but I am sure there are people here who may need them so go for it.

i have these listed on my poshmark for next to nothing, but if someone here wants them for the cost of shipping they're all yours.

skated sk8-hi pro's size 10. good amount of grip left and not terrible damage to either shoe, but definitely skated.
https://poshmark.com/listing/Vans-Sk8Hi-Pro-5ffe355c7ec30c8bd159a35a



well worn vault slip on's size 10. i have two other pairs and these ones just sit and collect dust (as you can see). still in great shape, good old black canvas trusty slip ons.
https://poshmark.com/listing/Vans-Vault-Slip-On-5ffe34a6ff83046f0faf3bf6



i probably have some old wheels or something that can be contributed as well. i'll definitely be back.

I've got:

- Some old bones STF that are down to about 50mm
- Some weird embryo wheels that I forgot where they came from about 52mm
- a bunch of old decks. No razor tail or huge wear but I like buying new decks more often than I need so now I have a stack. Quasi popsicles, an Ishod twin, and a few odd shaped decks all in the 8.25-8.5 range.
- pair of Thunder Hollow Light 148s. Skated for a year and decided I don't like them and would rather skate Ace or Indy

I'm in Northern Italy. Come and get 'em. I don't have a ton of free time to wait in line at the shipping place so I don't feel like shipping them.

I'm sure it's a long shot as there's not a lot of skateboarders in this part of the world, but if anyone wants them let me know when you want to come get them. I can meet you somewhere too if its a cool place like Padova or Bologna or Verona or wherever.

Otherwise I will drop them at the skatespot next time it's not wet and rainy.

yoooooo homies. cleaning out the threads

I've got a pair of mint Levi's 514 denim 32x30 for anyone who wants to pay shipping, which would be about $8-12 USD. Nice and comfy denim, bought them for a job that didn't end up requiring me to wear that sort of pants.

Also, for y'all who wanna get your ragamuffin look on point, i'v got some faded grey 511s in 32x29, replete with bike chain grease and some dirt stains from work. these were my go to pants for a couple years and they're broken in as fuck with that nice loose feeling that broken in Levi's get. If you like the 511, these are good skate/work pants for sure. Again, probably ship for $8-12USD.

shoot me a DM if you're interested

Anyone in Australia let me know if you want some grey Emerica Americana's for the price of postage. Size 10 but they run small so would fit a 9 or maybe 9.5. They'll need insoles too as I used them in some other shoes. I wore them once so they're basically new.

If you live in Los Angeles, preferably the east side since I live in echo park, and wear a size 10 I have some DC Legacy Slims for you. I bought a bunch of pairs on sale like a lunatic, but I realized two pairs in that I need a 10.5 in them. Theyíve been sitting in my closet for over a year. Times are tough out there so Iím more likely to just give them away instead of trying to sell them on depop or something. Iíd prefer to give them to a slap poster before leaving them at a skatepark

Emerica Reynolds High.  Size 9.5.  G6 thin cup sole.  Worn 3-4 times, just a touch small for me.

Useless bonus info, Heath Kirchart was in the room when I bought these from the shop he co-owned in Iowa. 

As long as I don't lose money shipping them, they're yours.

I'm posting from my blackberry wtf?!?!?

Not going to list everything but any Pittsburgh SLAPpers (or anyone passing through) that need a little help to get or keep rolling but don't have a lot of money can always PM me. I've hooked a couple of 412 pals up in the past. I can't promise it'll be pretty or that it'll be your preferred truck brand, woodshop, or wheel size/shape/formula but I've usually got a few things to choose from, especially if you skate similar stuff to me (8.12-8.38 decks with an emphasis on mellower shapes, 53-55mm wheels, 8-8.5" axle trucks).

If you want to throw me a few bucks then it's always appreciated, but not required or expected. Shalom Yinzers.

I dunno what it is, but everyone for The ĎBurgh I run across is good people. Two of my best (and oldest) online friends are in Pitts (via Oil City) and my neighbor is a Yinzer too. Sweetest lady ever. Letís me pet her wiener all the time. And letís not forget Slapís own inimitable Mr. Rapedick.

Got an 8.8" (14" WB) Creature Jay Howell egg/ football shaped Powerply and 8.5 (14.5" WB) Ishod twin tail. Both pretty well skated but still have life with decent 'pop' in them. Also, some 50mm Spitfire F4 tablets worn down to about 48mm no flatspots. Killer wheels.

Free to anyone that can grab them in Portland area or the N Oregon coast. Will post a pic if someone desires....

Real Mason Silva Full SE 8.06" x 31.5" x 14" wheelbase

Skated once for 20 minutes as I quickly realized I was not meant for the 14" gang (gripped w/ mob)

I'll gladly cover domestic shipping, or can do local pickup/delivery around LA (in 90046)

deck has been spoken for and is off to a new home!
