Bought my first skateboard today
    #789401 - 08/12/15 10:03 PM (1 year, 3 months ago)

So i had friends in high school that skated, and i hung out at the local skate park a lot but mainly just to chill and smoke. I was more into bmx and never owned my own board, though my brother did and I would ride my friends from time to time.

Well im almost 27 and got my first board today. Went to the local shop and got a blank complete. I dont plan on doing tricks, i just wanted it for getting around school faster and to skate to work since i live nearby and drive a big ass truck that pisses away gas.

Im pretty excited about it none the less...anyone else here skate? Any tips for noobz?

The guy at the store recommended me a longboard cuz i told him i was just gonna use it to cruise and dont plan on doing tricks but i went with the regular ones cuz i just like them better and i can hold it with my backpack.

Ive been using it a bit in the driveway and its pretty fun and a good workout.

And im not underage im almost 27...and i can take more bong ripzzz than you!

I ate shit off a quarter pipe  or something when I was drunk but that's about the start and finish of my skateboard experience.

:highfive:

Have fun with it man, just be safe. I would get some bones bearings and quality cruising wheels if you're really trying to cruise around with minimal pushing.

Skating is life! This is my cruising baby:

I used to skate a lot and then I fucked up my knee and now I'm too old and fat. I let myself slip away during my recovery and I never fully recovered. I miss it every day.

My advice is to not second guess yourself. Try to flow with it, and be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes a crash is coming. Learn to roll with it rather than against it and everything will be good.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Lmao this sounds like myself.  My friends were egging me on to drop into a halfpipe when I was in high school.  The first time was a free fall and the second time I almost made it but I flipped backwards and the board gave me a black eye when it came back down. 

I loved BMX and street with a bike back in the day.  Then my bitch step mother sold my bike for crack :crankey:

How was it to skate again after so much time?  I was thinking about getting a longboard myself, and I'm sure I will break my ass learning how to use it again lol.

yo Mario.  Is there a certain brand or material you would suggest for a longboard that would get a lot of travel time on it?  I don't know shit about them anymore.

You can't take more bong rips than me and...good choice with the trick deck it will be harder at first to ride hills although u can replace trucks. Wheels. bearings . Truck risers which are the pads Goin between deck and trucks I recommend stiff trucks and hard bearings they seem to get most out of your kick push and  coast while riding on flat ground..do u ride regular or goofy.. I find regular stance easier to olly  while I'm moving  even tho I ride Longboards goofy mango meaning right foot in front while kicking with front right foot reaching speeds of 30 mph+  ...and then eating shit ...If u don't get road rash u ain't trying hard enuff .. you will realize once u become enlightened  skater , all hills have a certain grade  or angle with which u descend and u reach a terminal velocity or max speed  of about maximum of 35 mph and that is the steepest mofo u will find its not like u will ever reach 60 mph on a skateboard and have potential to die ..wear helmet ..elbow.. knee guards ...2 sweatshirts jeans sweatpants over that..oh and smoke weed

Bmx was my shit.

I rode a 98' GT performer. I eventually got into dirt jumping, but still used the GT. It was a bit on the heavy side and I had to shave down the bars a bit, but I def got some air with it.

/when I was 3 I fractured my neck on a shitty skateboard of my bros. Hung out with a lot of skater though.

All I can do is ride one on roughly level ground. :lol:

I used to be more into bmx. I would ride street and tried to learn flatland but never got too good. I had a cool haro but i dont remember what happened to it.

I like this new board though. Rode it around a bit yesterday. Felt weird doing it after years but ill get used to it.

I was eating questionable sushi, close enough. All I know about wheel sports is in the 80's/90's you weren't shit if you didn't have pegs on your bike.

And I think roller bladers and skateboarders have a beef or something. It's a huge cause of gun violence in my country. D.A.R.E. told me.
