Any skateboarders around here, or am I the only one left? :D
Anyway, for whoever does skate... mind telling how long you've been skateboarding, what your favorite tricks are, etc etc, you know the drill :)

Cheers

Yeah man, I skateboard xD I just learned in about March, or april of this year xD I have a friend who teaches me a lot of stuff, but so far I can only do an ollie (as far as tricks go). I haven't really skated at all much this summer though... There used to be 2 different skateparks in my town, but they both got tore down a few years ago... Now the closest skatepark is about an hour away.

I'm street/goofy, what are you? ^

No I don't skateboard. I should learn though, it looks like fun. :D

I can only skateboard in video games, due to the fact that I'm very accident prone and therefore avoid such means of transport. :(

What's this... Skateboarding, you speak of?

It seems to remind me of something of that sort. Something people did in the early 90's... with boards on wheels.

^Yup, but now it's better =P

Yeah, that's sorta how I was, but practice makes perfect :P And once you get it, most likely, you'll never "lose it".... Unless you don't skate for like a year, then you might, haha.

Skateboarding is only cool when you say words like "bodacious" and "excellent." -- And you occasionally say words like, "Woah!"

I use to skateboard, but it got too common where I lived so stopped (I'll rather not talk about it). But I'm a Snowboarder instead of skateboarding

i do used to skateboard, but i have quit skateboarding 7 months ago,
while i was learning a new trick i broke my right knee,
but there are 3 skateboard parks near my house 2 of them are small
and one is big, it takes me 14 minutes to goto the small skateboard parks
and it takes me 23 minutes to goto the big one, the big one is little far from
my house. i have been skateboarding from 3 years now, but like i said, i

I'm street/regular, though some mini-vert sessions can be quitte fun too :D Closest skatepark here is about 10 - 15 mins away. My faves (and currently best ones as well) are Hardflip, Fakie Hardflip and Impossible :D I've been skating since... Uh, I think january 2008... Makes 1 year and about 8 months :P Skating this summer is a pain in the butt though, cause the weather here can get so hot that you're tired in no time, even when doing easy stuff. :/

Hah,
This thread brings back good memories.
I did do it once before...When i was 10, and me and my friend did it until we realised we was rubbish, we figured if we couldn't do an Ollie then we couldn't skateboard, yeah we could happily ride around on it but then we couldn't do any "tricks". We also used to make movies with skateboards (God that was embarassing) where we used to try to do "tricks".
I'd like to maybe try again seeing as i have developed some wait but my skateboard is left in the garage untouched with dust and spider webs on it.

Last time I skateboard is when I practiced my 360 on a ramp, but I tripped and injured myself. O.O

Since then, I quit skateboarding in real life. I skateboard on my DS. lol

Well, it's never too late to start :P I started pretty late myself (I was mid 15), but that doesn't matter that much. Starting early does give you the advantage of having more time to learn new tricks 'n such, more chances of getting sponsered, etc. But it's not that important. Look at me :P

I used too. I don't any more.
I was never great at it though :/
If my skateboard wasn't wrecked, I would start again.

You can always buy a new one though... A full-set here costs approx. 180€ (depening on what you buy, how much it costs, etc). In usa that will probably be around 150$.

I almost mastered it, took me 4 months of trying. :)

Oh well, it is worth the time though. :P For me, it took around 6 months to master Hardflip, and the results are... Great :D Impossible however, took me less than an hour to get down too o_O :D

It seems everyone I know who skates is street/regular.

Speaking of skatepark (well.. I guess no one was, but still) I always found it weird that most of the people at the skatepark are really nice.

Well, that's simply the nature of pretty much all skaters. We help each other out without actually thinking about it.

Booting this thread over into OVP~

-DarK-, take a look at the sticky thread here in Other Voting Polls, it'll help you decide where to put this kind of thing in the future. :3

Nope. I can barely walk without tripping. I would be dead within a week.

Besides, there really isn't any place around here to do it.

I haven't been able to skate much as of late, but I enjoy skating quite a bit.

I'm more of a manual kinda guy. I'm best at manualing because I have sick balance.

My favorite trick is probably the handstand. It's hard to do, I've busted my head a few times, but it's flashy and fun.

My favorite skater is a tie between Rodney Mullen/Chad Muska.

^Nice, man.... I still haven't skated in quite some time xP But I'm positive that I can still land an Ollie.

Me + Skateboard would definitely = Hospital. So no. I don't skate at all despite the fact that I have actually never been to the hospital. I think it's really because I'm a coward to such things -shrugs-

^I thought that too, when I first started. But I started to practice more and it became less... "scary" I guess you could say... Idk

August 14th, 2009, 12:06 PM
Well. If I ever did try skating, I certainly wouldn't be able to do any tricks. I'm a slow learned to those things. I would do simple skating down a street (or rather down the long driveway I have, since the street isn't skateable.)

chevelleROCKER
August 14th, 2009, 12:20 PM
^Well I'd be just happy to do that aswell... But my driveway is all rock =[ My road is very long and has a lot of hills, so I don't exactly know how fun it would be.

In my opinion, I'd rather roller blade than skateboard..maybe that's because I like my face intact..so I don't.

I skate sometimes. I've been doing it off and on for about seven years, so I'm pretty good. I've got a couple of different boards and a huge kit of parts for hybriding, but I usually stick with 'Klondike'. Klondike is my Baker, and has my favorite trucks on her. (:


We have one of the best skate parks here, too.
Skatepark of Tampa ftw.
