Lol, I can do toesides clean but can't do heelsides very well at all. Also, I can't boneless, what is wrong with me? EDIT: It's the doing it while moving part, I just can't get it :c
a friend of mine came over and he brought his longboard. went around my neighborhood with it, was really fun. something i wish i had so i could listen to music and just cruise around when im bored.
I'm looking into buying my first longboard and I'm just wondering if there is anything I should know. Most of what I know is advice from my friend who told me a 40' board with 70mm 75a wheels would be great for a beginner like me. (Cruising and hill bombing once I get the hang of it.) Anything else I should know before I make a purchase? I'll be spending around 200 CAN and plan on asking the people working at the skate shop for any advice as well.

[QUOTE=Rediscover;33920267]oh well it's really fun, i dont see why you think its dumb :([/QUOTE] I just wouldn't trust myself to ride when I'm high, but if you can do it go for it.
[QUOTE=FPKawaii;33920446]I just wouldn't trust myself to ride when I'm high, but if you can do it go for it.[/QUOTE] yeah definitely, theres a fine line between being safely high and 'oh god why am i on the ground and why is there blood everywhere' baked
[QUOTE=FPKawaii;33920446]I just wouldn't trust myself to ride when I'm high, but if you can do it go for it.[/QUOTE] I learned high, and I fell in love with it high.
[QUOTE=Rediscover;33920658]yeah definitely, theres a fine line between being safely high and 'oh god why am i on the ground and why is there blood everywhere' baked[/QUOTE] I guess I'll give it a shot next time I'm feeling like not getting really baked (ie:never).

has anyone else found themselves checking out hills when traveling? i was in a scarcely populated area visiting family and i saw some perfect hills that receive little to no traffic.
[QUOTE=stupid10er;33925792]has anyone else found themselves checking out hills when traveling? i was in a scarcely populated area visiting family and i saw some perfect hills that receive little to no traffic.[/QUOTE] Same, sadly, I almost never go back to visit such perfect hills.
Does anyone here ride Penny's ? Pretty fun and plan on getting one in a couple of weeks except the "Nickel" ver. because of my big ass feet (size 13). Anyways they are either 22' or 27' depending on which you get. Nice crusing and small bombing . Good beach board /point a to point b kinda board that's a real chill ride. Oh yeah and its made of plastic like old school boards.

is it just me or do all videos from Vimeo automatically start playing when you load the page?
God riding in >45 weather is such shit on your face, so much wind rash. So glad I had my fullface for at least half of it, I just can't justify freeriding in it because if I fall with it I'd be so pissed.
[QUOTE=Adelle Zhu;33927465]is it just me or do all videos from Vimeo automatically start playing when you load the page?[/QUOTE] no, they didnt start playing for me. just you.

What would be some good wheels for half freestyle half freeride use?
You could use just about any wheel for freestyle, so just pick some nice freeride wheel. I recommend Retro Freerides, Metro Motion, Cult Classics, Zombie Hawgs, S9 round lipped wheels, or Slide B's.
[QUOTE=Dr. Disciple;33957289]What would be some good wheels for half freestyle half freeride use?[/QUOTE] ABEC 11 Flashbacks 81a. They're like $33 on longboardskater.com and a super popular wheel that has held up to the test of time. Fucking love abec 11 classic thane. Plus no other 70mm wheel can beat its price.
