The Skateboarding Thread!

So I looked around and I have only found one skateboarding thread, which was not very active. SO: here it is!

Post your favorite skaters, best videos, trick tips, and what tricks you can do!

My fav. team is probably zero. I can kickflip, heelflip, varial kick, frontside flip, sometimes tre flip, impossible (sorta), fs and bs 180, noseslide, shove-it pivot, etc.


EDIT: Is this worthy of being sticked? And how would I do that?

PlasticGuitar: Don't worry, tre flips take a lot of time, I can only do them sometimes. You should try varial kickflips. They feel awesome once you get them down. My best tip for these is point your front foot at a greater angle, and put less of your foot on the board.

I haven't skated in weeks, mainly due to me being too lazy to buy a new board.

I' getting one this weekend, so it's all good


tricks:
Kickflip
Heelflip
180 both ways
fakie cabs
shuvs
varial kick

Been working on tre's for a year. It seems like every time I'm super close to getting it, I snap my board or take a break from skating

EDIT:

Also for tre's, every time I go for it my front foot is always landing ahead of the deck. How do I stop this?

Havox, Do you mean it is landing earlier or you land and your foot is in front of it?

I started again after quiting for like 9 years.
Ive noticed skateboarding is way more about standing around being cool and wearing ugly clothing than actually skateboarding nowadays.Also ive noticed it is hard to find Hookups skateboards, and when you do its a terrible selection.I can find a ton of "high tech" skateboards tho.Whats wrong with normal skateboards?

Also skateboarders at the local skatepark are real dicks now.I showed up and instead of being nice, they were all assholes.I remember when everybody (whether you were a stranger or not) were friends because of skateboarding and would just go skate.Now everybodys a badass and will kick your ass for looking at their plaid shoes and tight pants.
Maybe its just my park, but still its really stupid.

Skate videos?
Ive seen several new ones.The best are still Toy Machine Jump off a Building and Rodney Mullen Vs Daewon Song round 2.

I still love skating.I get the same feeling of accomplishment and happiness from it as I do from playing guitar.

Oh ok. Hm. A good site to go to is http://www.skateboarding.com in the trick tips section. It could be that you are leaning forward too much, but idk really.

I tried once, and fell when trying to jump...
Never tried since...

However, I did the 900 last night while eating cupcakes though...
