The Skateboard Thread

Recommended Posts

skating always will come down to how much of your self your willing to give, its just like having a daily workout routine but it hurts more.

 

 

 

That's my point exactly.

There's a serious amount of skate rats who would be willing to give an arm and possibly even a leg to be able to do shit like this:

 

^Yet this jock basically grew up focusing the majority of his attention on his MTV image.

 

Like I already said, I'm really not interested in arguing with people in England about this subject.

 

I'm just calling shotgun on when the truth actually does comes out.

As somebody who's skated in and even won contests (pro or not, it doesn't matter) that are based on your run being flawless and consistent, I can personally tell you that nobody takes risks like this.

In this contest format, people just do what they have on lock because if you miss even one or two tricks you miss one or two placings at minimal.

Contests like this are not like the Maloof where you can miss a million tricks, but still place on the one or two that you did land.

Therefore this is a prime example of exactly what the fuck I'm talking about.

mate I wasnt arguing with you, I agree people do live skateboarding, I know plenty of people over here that do as well. What I meant more was the people at the top of their game arent just living skateboarding anymore, they are living as professional athetes.

 

Putting in mad work in gyms, probably gymnastic type shit to get them flexible, just rather than skating none stop all day they now train around their skating as well. They have training regimes etc.

 

I mean pro skaters now arent like how it was in the 80s/90s it is more professional now, I'm not saying peoples passion towards it is any different, just the way they approach it and the money involved means it is takenmore professionally and serious.

 

Also a lot of the younger pros have literally had a deck at their feet since they could walk, I remember this little kid about 4 back in Bristol I would see skating, saw him not long ago he is now 18 and still skating and was doing more than I would imagine most of us on here could do.

 

I wouldnt be surprised if someone has taken drugs to help boost recovery from injury, I dunno quite what other performance enhancers there are that could help a skateboarder apart from injury recovery. Im not denying it could happen, and I wouldnt be surprised if it did at some point, but at the moment I dunno what benefit there is.

aint got shit on the skate park from the teenage mutant ninja turtles movie!

 

FUCKING 24'D.

 

Welcome to skateboarding in the city in the summer heat.

That "rubbery substance" is what they use to pave streets with, and it tends to melt and get so soft in the summer that you can literally grind the "waves" that are made from the weight of buses.

 

Or at least that's what I grew up with in Philly. No idea where you're at.

 

DAO?

I've come to the conclusion that professional skateboarders today are taking performance enhancing drugs.

I'm being serious.

Not that I'm necessarily knocking them for doing so.

Or saying that Skateboarding is even the type of sport that should be testing for that shit.

Just saying though.

 

Anybody else hear me on this?

 

You say the stupidest things. I'm not even talking about JUST this post either.

There's nothing stupid about what I said at all.

I'm sure if this was the 90's and I said Mark McGuire was juicing, or a few years ago if somebody said that Lance Armstrong was "doping", you would have called them an idiot.

 

 

All's I know is that when it does come out that certain pro's are "doping" then I'm going to quote your post with size 7 red AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA'S.

 

Until then that's all I have to say on this topic. End topic.

I'm not really into Plan B or Tech ledge skating but this guy should be pro, i can't even get my head round most of his tricks. New gen of skating is going above the bar set by todays pro's..

also, skaters doing performance enhancing drugs is lol worthy.

smoking weed and drinking aren't really performance enhancing.

unless your name is andrew reynolds I guess.

not even 5 mins into skating today i slipped back, and the inside of my knee hit the ground and the outside got sat on, heard and felt a few pops.. felt horrible, and is sore as shit.

10 minutes later my buddy gets hip checked by a 2 ft tall ledge. 10 minutes after that the other friend snapped his deck.. not our day.
