Been playing alot lately with mates down the pub. Was wondering if there has ever been any skate related flights made etc...so why not make a slap thread about it.

Anyone else fuck with em? It's strange as back in Ireland I'd never even consider playing them. Honestly couldn't even tell you one pub on the Island with a dart board. Here in France pretty standard in most pubs.

Also to stop the bullshit before it starts it's not a sport. I can play when I'm blacked out drunk.

Cricket is a lot of fun.

Haven’t played in awhile though.

Yeah we normally play cricket, faster than 301/501 especially as we have a mix of skill.

My flatmate ca. 1998, was the student union's champion in darts and pool and every Friday night he used to bring home a crate of beer that he won as prize for the weekly competitions. One time I was watching darts on the Eurosport channel and laughed at/appreciated the fact that all contestants were drinking pints. My flatmate then explained that darts is the only "sport" where your skill increases, the more you drink.
I love playing darts, used to have a target and semi-decent darts when I was a kid. My bedroom wall was all scuffed from missed shots.

It's fun.  Seems like bowling where you can not play for years then get into a game one night by happenstance and just crush it.

It's also like bowling where if you play more than two games, especially while drinking you basically have no idea how you're doing.

I was going to make the same comparison Ed.  For me they're similar in that my first game is always the best.  My first 10 frames in bowling and my first game of darts I'll always throw heat.  Then each subsequent game get progressively worse for some reason.

Get hungry on it!

Just saw there is a darts tournament at Santa Cruz Boardroom March 10th. My mate I guess is gonna be there.

Was looking for skate related dart stuff, only seen Palace, Indy and Santa Cruz. Surprised Supreme hasn't done any.

I got sucked into the local dart scene by a friend who runs a dart league.  I thought maybe darts could be my new thing.  Met a lot of awkward people, carried a lot of awkward conversations, and generally realized that darts, while somewhat fun, has a whole low personality scene around it.  If I had an incel family member I’d try to get them into the local dart scene for sure, or bowling, but not if they had drinking issues.

The place I used to go to didn't bother with the shoes. Darts beats bowling but putt putt golf beats darts. Maybe cornhole is good but I never played and I'm getting too off topic of darts.
My math goes out the window while drinking too so that adds an extra challenge with darts

No math needed for cricket. Plus your phone is got a calculator.
Not a hope I'd buy a crob deck hahahaha

Working from home has me throwing daily. It’s therapeutic, yet challenging. Around The World is a solo favorite, along with short cricket.

Bay Area Pals, holler at me for that Santa Cruz thing. Let’s do this!

i've been playing for a little while now and am pretty damn good at it!!
i play almost every day and win more than i lose but i do lose and i am a good loser.
i'm on my second set of darts now, harrows blood something i can't remember. my first set were so good but i somehow lost them. they were harrows black ice.
i have a group of people that i play with and i always tell them "we're all equals here" we mostly play cricket in order and 3B. 3b is super fun! just takes a little while longer to play.
i have won against and been beaten by all of them. i am also the type to share information about what i find to work best for me as far as throwing technique. "together we are stronger" is what i tell them. i also think the best way to get better faster is to have your own set. its like having your own skate setup. even a $20 set will make you better. those black ice i mismanaged were $100 :(
i am fascinated by how everyone has a different style when throwing. as far as i know there's no wrong way to throw a dart as long as you're behind the line. it's just what works for you. one of my friends throws it like its a fast ball and for the longest time was the man to beat. i bet i would whup his ass now though!

here's my 3 steps to good darts:
step1) approach the line with confidence
step2) relax(this is very important)
step3) throw

thanks for making this thread!!

i am always drinking when i'm playing and lately i've noticed i don't drink as fast when i'm playing. kind of a win.
