The Scrape Report
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:05:47 AM »
anyone else fixated on how your paint scrapes off your board?  i find myself flipping my board over constantly to see how the slide marks are coming in.  i can't be the only one, can I?

as you can see, I'm pretty heavy on the slappy noseslides.  its my lil warmup before my legs will let me ollie, so a dozen or so when i first get to the park.

the tail is pretty messy.  i'm trying to re-learn back tails, and i'm still being a pussy and not committing, as shown by all the 45 degree marks

i tried to keep the "forbidden 14" intact, but couldn't resist a few lipslides

Going from the serenity of regular front nose marks to the insane scars of those from slappy noseslides really set me off, so I relate
Regular stance is a mental disorder defined by the DSM-5

My tailslides suck, I can get up there but I'm lucky to slide a foot before my muscle memory just turns me back out. I'll occasionally ride it backwards and do some longass noseslaps on the tail just to make it look more balanced.

I relate to this on a spiritual level.

No I canít tailslide :( but I just learned switch slappy noseslides (kind of as a joke, to myself, as I bemoaned my shitty frontside tail marks.) But theyíre fun! I made a promise I was going to F14 my past two decks but I keep blowing it.

My tailslides typically fade out quickly too because I never lock in correctly. I just do 5-0 to tailslides to keep my morale up. I tried to find a picture but I usually only take them when the deck is fresh.
i donít think any of you are real, i think slap was invented by my mom to make me think people want to talk to me

i feel the beginning of another great thread...
I wish I'd known that at best we only have 20 summers at a decent skate level.
From then on it's low impact skating and trying not to forget tricks. 20 summers. And then it's over.

Smith grinding my buddies wood box has fucked up the rails of my board. Kinda like the look tho.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

I love this thread! Iím the same way, constantly always looking at the marks on my board and trucks. Kinda hard to see because itís a blank, but thereís enough transfer wax/dirt to get an idea. Board is an 8.38 prime blank, definitely on its last legs.

I feel like this little piece of history is a good way to show how my boards used to wear.

Hardly been anywhere since covid besides my ramp, so there is almost no wear at all on most of my current setups.

Excuse the poor collage. Some recent boards before and after that I remembered to take pics of.
Usually try enforce the forbidden 14, but after a few accidental violations its open season. I do like smith grind marks on the side though.

The forbidden 14 = so good!

Yeah it was funny when that was a thing, even with some people getting so pissed that someone else scratched the middle of their board on purpose when they weren't looking.

Iím torn.  On the one hand, I get the aesthetic appeal of the Forbidden 14.  On the other hand, I still think boardslides on ledges look cool a la Chico Brenes in the Love Child video.  Or, Tony Hawkís street part in Ravers.  I think he did a handful.  Used to be a thing.

Oh yeah board/lipslide variations are so fun and look perfectly great. Its just a matter of how it makes your board looks if you care about that at all. My go to spots don't have anything thats super fun to do board/lipslides on anyway but its always tempting. I'll usually try go at least the first week without doing them though.

Top middle is end of life board, lots of front board bonks on the end of ledges and curbs.

Bottom is recent deck, some shitty marks from missing a few things on the end of ledge

Haha, I remember he eviscerated some poor ding dong that floated in here and posted a setup with really gross slide marks.  I believe he told them they should be ashamed of themselves, haha.

But yeah Iím a total freak about that stuff.  I have to immediately get some nose and tail slide marks on a new deck and I am constantly checking the bottom of my board out.

Iím super sensitive about my tailslide marks too: I get bummed if I see a bunch of 45 degree angles and swirlies on the tail.  If Iím lucky enough to have some nice laser beams along the baseplate, my whole body feels like the tip of a penis and the world is one big microwaved fifi.  Iíve never been good at them, so evidence of some nice ones are like a little badge of honor.

This is all super petty and vain, but whatever.  You all get it.

Thanks! My favorite trick, trying to hold them for more than a couple inches while still coming out clean.
