Take out the insole, throw the shoes in the washing machine and let it dry in the shadow.

Anybody try anything other than grip tape made for skating as grip? Carpet? Sandpaper? Ping pong paddle rubber side things? Astro turf? I have the itch to feel something new under my feet.

I tried the rubber stuff, you gotta make sure itís not dusty or you will slip. Foot slipped off on a kick turn ate shit bad. Was done with it after that.

Ok

501s have always been my go to, and they are on the cheaper end of the spectrum. i havenít bought any for a few years, so iím used to the old $50 ish price.
i wear 4 styles of pants, carhartt b01s, dickies 874 (very rarely), leviís 501s (almost always), and wrangler 13mwz. wranglers are different, but good.

iíve wanted to try lee, havenít.

Have you tried Wrangler 13mwz rigid? The ones you'd get at Tractor Supply, not Walmart. $30 max.

great point regarding the wranglers, and walmart.
i havenít had any luck with buying clothes from walmart, even stuff like dickies felt off, when i got them there.
i donít think walmart carries the 13mwz, but i could be wrong.
speaking of walmart, ive never tried rustlers.
old coworker gave me some Ö.riggs? maybe made by wrangler? not amazing, but they are lasting longer than my beloved b01s last.

He talks about getting on Krux in his CBI interview, but another photo from earlier in that same interview shows him on what appear to be Ventures.

I wanna play you in a game of SKATE for the right to continue talking shit on me.  You think you got me?

 I have some Tiago 808s i have just wore as chillers and normally only skate the blazer mids. Recently knees have been killing me and everytime i wear the 808s out and about my knees instantly feel a bit better which has me thinking if i should finally give in and try skating them. Just a little nervous because i have only skated high top vulcs for the past 8 yrs or so after a bad ankle injury. Anyone have good experience switching to Tiago 808s after only skating vulcs and notice less pain in the knees? I know the boardfeel will be a huge change to get used to but im ok with that if they really do help the knees out

808 are a game changer if you have any sort of knee, ankle, whatever pain.

Can anyone tell if this board is worth something or if itís just a cheap re-issue?  Local seller is asking $300cad for it.

Without getting too deep into the world of collecting, anything that is limited by number of boards released, certain colourways or even anything with "Special edition" somewhere on it, the price doubles depending on who is selling and then triples depending on who is buying.

If that doesn't make sense, think of it this way - a shop will usually sell a board at RRP, not much above, but also not much below, unless the board is on clearance for whatever reason, but a shop is not a collector so it will not have added value.

A collector may hold on to a board and try to resell it at a significant profit, depending on demand or even if some other collector has more need of it and is willing to part with more money to get it, but generally if no one is buying, it is not even worth what was initially paid for it.  Someone who bids against someone else on ebay can easily go way over what they initially wanted to pay for something and I know I have sold some things at well above what I would have expected to get, as well as bought things for more than I was initially wanting to pay, but I have also won auctions with no other bidders, so it all works out in the end there.


Getting back to that particular board, if you are willing to pay that much for it, sure it is worth it to you, but can you justify that board when you could have two others for the same price, of current edition reissues or just not spend the money at all and be happy to see a picture of it for free?

I have found that just saving a lot of pictures of old boards I used to have, or I liked the look of, was way cheaper in the long run, but on the other hand, some people just need to have that board in their hand, to have it on their wall, or even to get it and set it up and skate it, no matter what the age or price.

That is more just on you, but I wouldn't think that board is worth that much, just on face value.

Others might give you a different opinion though, so I guess wait and see.


* As I forgot to put in a link to more info, check out what Conflict Skates has to say about that board (sold out, but definitely NOT a special collectors piece, as far as I could see there) with good info in the lower section of that page:


https://www.conflictskates.co.uk/santa-cruz--sma-natas-panther-3-skateboard-deck-105-x-30125-155-wb-blue-25677-p.asp


https://www.sk8collector.com/stoke/santa-cruz-sma-natas-panther-3-reissue-skateboard-deck-blue


Says it was from 2017, but no other info worth posting that hasn't already been seen.

I have four Natas reissues and they seem to go on eBay for anywhere from $150 to $350 so that's about the right price. Is it worth it? Not really. You could probably get it cheaper. Sick color way though.

Bought all mine when they came out.

Are Stan smith skate from Adidas second venture into skateboarding, around 2005, worth anything ?
They're dark brown with gum sole and much puffier than non skate ones.

If the truck mounting pattern is newschool, it's a re-issue.

not really, you might feel it slightly at first but it will rub off after a few slides. if they are flush with the baseplates it shouldn't be an issue.

This is gonna sound stupid as fuck, but I need to askÖ.

Do you guys tighten or loosen your trucks based on the trick youíre trying? I was doing some slappy crooks and I found them much easier to lock into when I loosened my trucks, but earlier today I was trying to switch 5050 a ledge (a trick in which I have very little control of) and it was so much harder to land without wheel biting or being squirrelly when trying to lock in with loose trucks.

depending on how soft, they can make you board sound dead or water logged. if you can live it, it shouldn't be a problem.

i only tighten them up when i'm bombing a bigger hill, but that thing you're doing makes sense too. i started riding looser when i learned crooked grinds because it's easier to lock in.

No way. Before the 3 ply shock pads was my go to. It will shape to your plates day one probably. Definitely ain't a gimmick too. I just can't get enough of the sound of wooden plates.
It's better than rails.

Deck is feeling kind of ďdeadĒ. No risers, I donít leave it in my vehicle, no signs of cracks and nowhere near razor tail. I had a great session on it the other day and it was feeling nice and poppiní fresh. Then yesterday it felt completely dull. What gives? Riding Thunder trucks and 99a wheels if that gives any insight.

Have you checked if your hardware is tight enough? And maybe the axle nuts are a bit too tight? Sometimes my board feels like that when the ground is really warm.

Thanks for the advice. I usually have a little clickety clack to my wheels but for some reason one of them had tightened down ( or I forgot to back it off after rotating wheels ). One bearing was really squeaky too so after a drop of oil and proper adjustment weíre feeling lively again.

Edit: @moonordie nah. Antihero 8.5 short. Relevant point for P.S. enjoyers though. Was also waiting on a ďnano-tubesĒ comment, lulz
