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.

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.

thanks for making this thread @FrozenIndustries

EDIT: I'm having trouble posting images today but I'm planning to add more items

FREE
worn 3 times (never skated) half cab pro 10.5
NYC Queens area contactless pick up only for the time being


First item listed is a fresh pair of Van's Half Cabs, damn!

Great thread @FrozenIndustries and @funeral_tuxedo, lord knows we have too much gear that feeds our madness.
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"?

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.

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.

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.
