Element sucks. They have Bam who is a sellout on their team. I personally dont buy brand name decks anymore. Its extra money for the picture which is going to get scratched off anyways. I buy blank decks or Mini Logo. You save a lot of money and they are the same. I strongly recommend them to any skater. Are there a lot of skaters here?

I don't skate because I have no balance whatsoever. I tried and I nearl killed myself and many others. But I do love watching the pros and I agree with Offspring Pyro. Bam is a sellout, he's a moron, and he's not a very good skater.

i have a brand name deck. the guy that manages the place gave a good recomendation for it after i had picked it out. its the brand he prefers, or so he said. i believe him. he's a really cool guy. i really like it. my bro has a blank deck from that same store and it sucks. i wasnt paying for it so price did not matter to me. they don't really have much of a selection of blank decks where i shop. there are only two shops in my area. i haven't been to the second one (which ironically, is less then a 1/4 of the distance from me than the other shop is)

my friend is determined to learn to kickflip before she learns to ollie, just cause someone don't her she can't. its really kinda funny. she'll try and do it for 5 mins or so and then she gets pissed and kicks her deck across the street.

I like when Bam Margera knocks into a mailbox with his head and when he jumps from weird things or just run and falls down while trying to take his t shirt off. LOL
He isnt a great skater, true... true... but I think he can ride skateboard well. He can ride it well I say.
Pz!

back to skateboarding....
Like i said Bam is a sellout, but he actually does not suck at skateboarding. For all that stupid viva la bam shit hes done, i must say he is a good skateboarder. If you've seen such videos as One Step Beyond or any Element Tour video you know he doesn't completly suck. He's always doing doing nollie 360's over something. But what i hate about watching skate videos with him in it is like half the time he's doing what hes supposed to do, skateboard, but the other half hes doing some stupid shit he thinks is funny like smacking people across the face or doing other stupid shit he does on Jackass.

Mr.Fletcher
07-08-2005, 10:17 AM

Yeah, I do agree with my 'forespeaker'.

But don't you like when he jumps off of a balcony and falls straight to the swimming pool about 5 floors beneath? Thats quite a big deed for me.

I mean yeah that stuff is funny....the first or second time he does it. I just dont like when he brings in all his CKY shit into SKATE videos. If he wants to wipe shit all over someones face or jump off a roof into a pool they should make another CKY video for it.

Playing pranks on someone is dumb expecially when it's CKY-style, but I really don't mind a few seconds break during the film for a good Bam Margera solo jump-off-a-roof action. :)

Lies. Either that, or you're just the fastest learner in the world.

By the way... in your sig, do you mean to say Barricade? ..Because that doesn't make any sense. I think you might mean Bacardi.

I've been skateboarding for about two and a half weeks now. I've only fallen down once, and it was on a VERY windy day. I ended up with a bruised tailbone and a two by one inch scab on my left elbow. But that was two weeks ago.

I've got a $40.00 board from Gart Sports to be my beginner board. But I won't be getting a nice one because my volleyball coach has forbidden me from skateboarding for fear I might break something. :(

Plus, no tricks yet, because frankly falling isn't fun. But it is cool showing off your wounds!

How are you doing on Ollies?

It might take a while longer, but Generally if you skate for two and a half weeks, you should be getting pretty close to doing one. Usually it takes anywhere from a week to a month or two to be able to do them consistently.

I'm a very inconsistent skater. I'll skate nonstop for two months, then stop for a month, and then start again. Problem is, when I come back from not skating, I'll have gotten a lot worse and have to start over. The best I was able to do was do Pop-Shoveit's over things.

When I started skating, the first week all I learned was to:

Manual 25 feet
Shuv-It
Poser grind
Put a board together

Heck, I learned how to pop-shuv-it before I learned how to ollie.

I found that the ollie is one of the hardest tricks to learn. Once you can do it, it is as easy as kicking a football. Also it makes doing other tricks alot easier.

Practice and true motivation is really the only way to get good.

Wow, I quit skating just like a year ago, possibly a couple weeks after the last post I made up there.

That was just like a phase. Because almost everybody skated a couple years ago, especially the Middle Schoolers. Now, no one except for the really good skaters are still skating. I got really bored of it.

I was waiting for a friend like a week ago, and got bored in my garage, and pulled out my skateboard. I can still ollie, shuv-it, and pop-shuv it. But now I can't even flip the board, none the less land a kickflip, and I can't manual for crap now.

I think I should sell my board on eBay or something. I have two skateboards, so I might just sell the one I used less and don't like as much, just in case I feel like going back in time and skating again.

P.S. I had two boards, and then I decided to take my favorite parts out of the two to make my ultimate favorite skateboard. And I came up with a Black Label deck that I love to death, Destructo trucks, Lucky bearings, and Alien Workshop wheels.

Element sucks. They have Bam who is a sellout on their team. I personally dont buy brand name decks anymore. Its extra money for the picture which is going to get scratched off anyways. I buy blank decks or Mini Logo. You save a lot of money and they are the same. I strongly recommend them to any skater. Are there a lot of skaters here?
i'm a skater and i'm the same as you - i only buy blank decks. anyone mountainboard on here? (incase you don't know what that is..it's pretty much like a skateboard on steriods)

Bam suckes dick. I can't stand him. Rodney Mullen is the best skater Ever! I don't like element but i do like Mike Valley. I still don't use element decks though, i buy blank decks. I skate all the time, at least 3 hours a day. I can ollie an 8 stair. I can't do flip tricks though. I spend all my time ollieing or practicing old school rodney shit, like premos and caspers.

Are you guys kidding? Bam is a very good skater. I thought he wasn't that great either, until I bought Elementality, and he's actually really good. But like Lodat said, there's much more skaters that are better than him.

And Rodney Mullen is absolutely amazing. He's completely original, and it seems like he can do anything.

Personally, my favorite skater is Chris Haslam.

Oh, and I have a ton of skate videos, I read Transworld Skateboarding, and I used to skate, so I know what I'm saying. And my favorite skate video is Almost: Round Three, by the way. Haslam, Mullen, Song, and Sheckler, doesn't get much better than that.

Yeah, Bam is great. I don't understand why everybody was ripping on him. And Bucky used to be my favorite skater when I first got into skating.

And the Tony Hawk series is sweet, even the whole Underground and American Wasteland thing was completely unrealistic.

Thanks. I take it you're a Billy Talent fan, which makes you awesome.

For some reason, I'm not surprised by this at all. Probably because I don't think I've ever heard him say anything that made me want to be a fan of his.

When it comes to his skating ability, I think he's really, really overrated. He's fun to watch, but that's only because of his age, which is the reason he's so popular. Actually, Nyjah Hutson, is actually better than him, and like five years youger than him, at least!

I'm really exited today because 180 roastbeef off a really high loading dock today. I'm really good at grab tricks but not flip tricks. I'm also good at rodney mullen shit. I'm so close to landing a fakie 540 shove it, i landed it once but when i landed on the board it shot out from under me and i fell on my ass. I want to buy one of those offspring decks but right before those came out i bought a 50 dollar almost. What skateshops do you guys go to? The skateshop i go to is called Tgm. It's awsome. They are allways giving me free shit. And whenever i go there i go in the back and watch skatevideos.

Woah, not only would I ever be able to ollie off a high dock, but do a 180? Good job.

I was never good at flip tricks either. And a fake 540 shove-it sounds really beastly, I hope you land that sometime.

And I used to go to a place called Cheapskates, but then I realized how high they sold things there, and never came back. But now I go to Slick Disk, which is actually a record store, but they have a kickass skate shop in the back. Everything's cheap, they have the best stuff, they'll do everything for you for free, and they'd always give me free wax when I needed a new CD, so it was perfect.
