Iíve chalked up losing my kickflips due to a horrible ankle roll at 23, but realize I lost the timing and muscle memory after I recovered, and that loss of timing had slowly taken over a majority of my tricks

same, i'm on a mission to get them back though. hard to do since the weather been fairly unstable lately and i seem to have only free time when it rains.

i drunkenly focused my deck for the first time and im scared how much that relieved my stress.....

non skate related issues but man i feel better.
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

A focused deck is better than most other destructive alternatives

Someone posted an instagram post on here from a skateboarding news account and I went in the IG comments and told them they should focus it, then the next day the account had disappeared. I felt kinda bad but also like I'd affected change in the world that day. Just wanted to get that off my chest

I probably skate my trunk/rain/junk setup, more than any of my other, much nicer setups.

It helps release the pent up anger and stress a lot. Especially when you can physically grasp it. Yeah some kid could skate it but you gotta our yourself first so you can help other later.

Just brought out mine and my bearings and bushings are mad squeaky. Is the secret using your board more?

That's been my problem for years ever since I rolled my back ankle. I try experimenting with different techniques and the closest one I've gotten to a decent kickflip was practicing doing an ollie in the kickflip position and then moving your foot slightly off. Even then my bad habits come to fruition and I'll land one out of maybe 25-50.

I never understood how such good musicians could join Fred. But he sure as fuck made them gazillions they probably would never have earned.

flaccid pushes really grind my gears. Sinner is a prime example, combined with his arm sway and you get the perfect combo for hitting the "vert button."

I somehow can't stand it when skaters push around and then hover the foot next to the board for too long. even worse when turning. often mixed with this exaggerated chin up/ neck strech while looking out for the obstacle as if they are a captain on a pirates boat trying to spot something on the horizon. nothing is more fake steez than that imo

high risk roommate moved out, so i went to the skatepark for the first time in ages. was planning to wear a mask but no-one else was so i figured it's probably fine since it's outside. tried to keep distance but there's that one spot where a bunch of us wait to take a run, and there was also this sketchy dude who got kinda close to me. woke up feeling really stupid and very anxious. i should have just worn a mask.

Good for you. I'm sure you'll be fine though, transmission outside seems very low

I cut a session short recently completely and 100% due to some dude tripod filming himself ripping. I donít care how good you are - you do that when no ones around like the rest of us. Have some shame.

You did the right thing. If someone rips and can't get anyone to film them, there is probably a real good reason.

I love designs on griptape. Like flowers and the jimi hendrix one. Grizzly griptape might be my favorite grip actually
Holy shit, I think you should keep that one to yourself and that's coming from a chronic over sharer.
Before you say the music sucked, have you considered shutting the fuck up?

I know im new here and all so I dont really expect anyone to care too much, I just feel like this a safe space to get all this shit off my chest

Freshman year I spent well over $300 on nicotine, mostly with money i made s3lling my perscription to upperclassmen.  It was just that for a long time until i started smoking weed.  Never that frequently, it just wasnt my thing back then.  For my birthday one of my closer friends gave me six bars as a present.  I got addicted to them fast, and Im 100% sure they were fake but I loved the way it made me feel. It got to a point where I couldnt sleep without taking two.  I mellowed out but I was addicted for a year or so, but the doc wasnt refilling so I had no income, therefore i couldnt afford em anymore. i remember the withdrawls sucked but i dont remember that much, just that i lost all motivation and stopped eating/sleeping.  Since then ive stayed realitivly clean, but I relapsed a couple months ago.  Im a lightweight when it comes to drinking, which is nice bc a handle lasts me much longer.  Right now i take these muscle relaxers i found in the medicine cabinet and they work amazingly

Ive been stuck in two shitty relationships that ended up going nowhere and left me more down than before.  Rejection by family severerly affected me,  and to be happy in a relationship i need constant reassurance bc I have really bad trust issues nd a poor self image.  My parents consistently emotionally abusing me does not help  i feel like the way ive been treated in the past severely fucks up any chance of a healthy relationship.  I just recently confessed feelings to my dream girl and she friendzoned me and now she ghosting me.  didnt expect it to hurt this bad,  i thought we had a good thing going

I wish I could get therapy or meds but my parents dont believe in mental health  :-\
They also said I will be severely punished if I self harm again, even though the time they caught me it was nothing compared to later.  I wish they were kidding but the way they treated me after that i wouldnt be suprised if I got a few bruises

I want to be successful one day, so as annoying as it is, I try in school and get super bummed when I get below a B.  RN i got two high bś and an A and im super proud of that. 

I coulda had my drivers license but I put it off so now I cant take the test until december

I barely got any friends, and the ones I do just arent the type I can talk about this stuff to.  They amazing people, I just hate putting burden on people im close with.  Im pretty reserved and I dont really talk much, only if spoken to or if i warmed up to you first.  I really hate swearing but I swear a lot.  I also love to talk shit on everything, even if I like it.

On the light side, Im progressing in skating pretty fast, classes switch next week, and my drivers test is coming up.  super bummed halloween hellbomb cancelled this year

oh and over the past couple months Ive read this whole thread.  hope you guys are well even tho idk u guys ily <3




I mean he is kinda doing dog drugs so I fuck with it
