that's kind of a joke amongst us because my friend dislikes fixies. i'm riding a single speed. i'd like to have one to fuck around and learn stuff like riding backwards with, but i wouldn't part with my bike for one.

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

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.

Sometimes Iíll try to divide by zero on a calculator just to fuck with it.  Daddy loves watching it squirm and struggle.

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?
