You think skateboarding could cause hearing loss?
« on: May 03, 2022, 07:18:10 AM »
Serious question as I already lost quite a bit from Concerts.

I mean sometimes itís just crazy loud when you land a flip on the wrong side of the deck for example.
You think it could have negative impact ?

Idk about hearing loss but it's made my tinnitus worse for sure...i'd say that's more from slams than the noise boards make though.

Turning your Airpods up loud enough to drown out the sounds of the skatepark will give you hearing loss for sure, as for skating itself I think if you're outside in an open area most sounds won't hurt your ears too much unless you're less than 5 feet away from someone slamming their board on the ground griptape side downwards Jovontae style

I was born like 50% deaf but can't say skating made it worse for me. It's more like all that constant human talking that's making me completely deaf.

shut up and skate my pals

The skateboard itself only? I doubt it.

Trying to listen to music/podcasts over the sound of yourself skating? Yes. Absolutely.

For real. Be careful about that.

Unless you're rocking sound-cancelling headphones (definitely don't do that if you're skating streets) then just be fine with the fact that you will only be able to hear your song/podcast clearly in between tries.

Its not worth losing your hearing over something dumb like that.

I broke a kingpin for the first time today. Trying to hammer it out was the loudest skate related sound I've heard so far and by far.
I failed btw, thunder forged baseplate.

i've been putting this off with my broken thunder lights for a few weeks, skating a skinny setup with some old venture lows whilst i pluck up the courage to get around to it.

Eh?


One of my friends growing up had one of these. Excellent for aiming amplified farts directly into the ear of an unsuspecting victim.

People listen to podcasts while skating? This is new to me lol

I get it listening to music to get pumped and try new stuff or with more confidence but podcasts? Maybe it's me

yeah really echoey, indoor spots i have noticed my ears ringing on the drive home even. if this is the main way you skate i would probably wear earplugs! but its not something i do very often so i dont care. if you are outside, i dont think its any louder than the sound of traffic , lawnmowers, etc. as far as dB levels are concerned.

last time i tried i couldn't hammer it out
Heating the baseplate should soften it and help remove what's left
