      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

WANTED: skateboard

Recommended Posts

One of my first rides on my longboard was down a pretty steep hill. After around 40mph I got scared. Some speed wobbles didn't help. I made it though. Coasted to a stop, and dealt with a flood of adrenaline. It was cool.

Thanks to this thread and the gorgeous weather here in P-town, DFA was inspired to longboard down to the post office to drop off some mail.

hey, it's not like didn't appreciate the effort, but i needed more info than you could give me about said parts. and i know you were willing to let me SEE the stuff first, but i myself wouldn't have known *what* i was looking at. AND even though you said i could exchange the parts if i wanted, i didn't really want to have to drive out to "the worth" to do so.

 

so, ERIK, i scored an awesome deck from a friend who had one of the makes i've been looking at getting, and i got killer deals on all the other parts ... and got just the set-up i wanted.

 

weeeeee!!!

I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS A SAKTE PUNK...

 

ALL SKATEBOARDS WERE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME.

 

THEY STILL ARE NOW..

 

SURE THERE IS SIZE/WEIGHT DIFF ABOUT THE DECK AND WHEELS AND SHIT...BUT I NEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS A LEGIT EXCUSE TO NOT SKATE OR TAKE A CHEAP SKATE BOARD.

 

I JUST WANTED TO SKATE............

erik -- a skater punk? whoa, dude. flashback! cantfocus.gif

 

i think saying all skateboards are pretty much the same is kind of like saying all cams are pretty much the same. to some extent.

 

ps - snoboy, the car's running now and i'm hoping to have my mechanic paid off by the end of the month. (shit!!!) other than that, things are pretty darned good.

NOT REALLY

 

THERE IS NO TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS IN SKATE TECHNOLOGY FOR QUITE SOMETIME....

 

I REMEBER WHEN VISON CAME OUT WITH A COMPOSITE BOARD...WHAT A PIECE OF SHIT....

 

ALL SKATEBOARDS ARE ABOUT THE SAME.....

 

YOU WOULD NOT SKATE ANY DIFFERENT ONE BOARD FROM ANOTHER....

 

JUST LIKE YOU WOULD CLIMB ANY DIFFERENT ONE SET OF CAMS TO THE NEXT..

 

 

THATS MY POINT, IT IS THE SKATER AND NOT THE SKATEBOARD WHICH MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

more like two sets of wheels, but i know at least a few guys with at least two boards - one for pool surfing; one for street riding. from what i understand, if you only do one sort of riding, one board will do ya ... but it does depend on what you like to do. if you want to do a lot of flip tricks you're better off getting a board designed to facilitate flipping. a longboard or a big freaking pool riding board is gonna suck for that!

 

i'm not saying a good skater couldn't do everything with one board; i'm saying some boards make some stuff easier ... especially for someone who's just starting out! geez.
