    Yeah I was looking for a picture of that kid's website with "And I also like to skate some." when I saw the thread but never could find anything.

    old school longboarding was rad

    when that's all motherfuckers had, so they flipped mean tricks

    now i just associate with 14 year olds skating around their neighborhood and smoking cigarettes, goddamn ruffians

    That dude in the blue suit is pretty rad.

    But how do you stop, other than going all the way to the bottom of the hill? What if there's like a big car wreck in front of you that you can't go around?

    Do you just crater?

    I don't get all the hate with long boards. Yeah, a lot of douche bags get in peoples way on them, and they've basically become a fashion accessory, but if you find some big ass hills with barely any people or cars around, that shit is fun.

    because this is the internet and we have to maintain a sense of superiority over everybody

    You know what my brakes have been for five years

    Bailing

    Or doing that wonderful wipe-out where you stumble forward for about two-three steps, lose any semblance of balance, and smash your face into the road

    The key is to not be a fag and actually use the damn thing.

    That being said, I still prefer normal skateboarding most of the time.

    Edit: Look at these crazy dudes. This is what it's all about.

    Why is every skate video filmed with a fisheye lens?

    I was just wondering this myself.

    Not that that video isn't completely insane.

    Most of the time skateboarding is being filmed very close up, and a fish eye allows you to capture more from that kind of perspective. You don't want someone to kickflip right out of the shot.

    Edit: I'm guessing they used it in this video because they probably aren't looking through the camera going that fast, and they'd be more likely to capture the other dude with one.

    As for stopping, if you wanna risk crashing, you can do slides to slow down. But when you're going that fast, no way in hell.

    Downhill is scary as fuck, but oh man the adrenaline rush is like no other

    I was always that guy in school that loved skateboarding, most of their friends skateboarded, but could never actually skateboard themself.

    I was always terrible at it, and that's not to say I didn't try. I did, but man it was ugly all around. I have such an appreciation for it though and I love watching it.

    Energy drinks all-together are a placebo effect. I can down three red bulls in five minutes with nothing to show for it except being out $6.
    caffeine is bullshit government propaganda

    That video is fucking insane. When I was at my old place and my old job, it was basically a two-mile skate that was all downhill, but through some of the worst traffic in the area. I've never been big on skating between cars (though there's one street in Portland that's awesome to skate down the wrong way in the middle of the night, well-lit and visible, of course), but it used to be my hobby to see if I could get all the way to work without having to put a foot down. I managed it twice, two beautiful skates where the lights and traffic were on my side and I flew down to work in about 14 minutes.

    Nothing quite like falling off of a longboard. Falling off of a skateboard usually doesn't dictate that you're going so fast that speed-wobble has taken every bit of balance you could have hoped to have. Longboards, though... I've torn clean through a pair of Dickies and got some ridiculous road-rash through a pair of yoga pants which, miraculously, didn't tear, but were kind enough to absorb a whole lot of blood as a I finished going to work.

    I got some looks.

    My favorite road rash was the morning I woke up at my coworker's house, still dressed for kitchen, missing my pants, and had to skate home a mile in my underwear, a hangover, and a hoodie. Ate it rounding a corner and opened my leg from thigh to calf. That's what you get for boarding stupid.

    Rane, you lazy bastard, you can shut the hell up.
