I am thinking of starting to skate. I have never ever tried a skateboard before. I only have a past with some rollebladers. So I am totally a newbee, which boards would u recommend to a newbee, any tips would be greatly appricated!
Avoid cliffs, bridges and other steep drops
If you just wanna ride around through the streets get a cruiser board. It can ride around rough ground. If you wanna go into more like street skating (riding curbs or doing some easy tricks) get a standard skateboard. If you are already dedicated in your mind that you want to loke it and invest a bit of time into it (not just like ride once and done), buy a skateboard from a local skateshop and not from walmart or similar. It’ll cost you 5-6x that much, but it’ll serve you longer and the materials are high quality. Not sure if this is going to help you in any way, but here’s my 2 cents
Thank you Nomfork.
I skateboarded for six years but now I need my body good for work so I retired the boards. Have fun and prepare for pain.
Ps . Watch out for stones, they are your enemy, lol.
Oh and it’s all in the knees, you gotta be flexible and swift, limber and move like a cat. It’s very fun and I had a blast.
Thanks for the tips Brudda, greatly appriciated.
Ye, pebbles are your worst enemy. Almost grinded a car with my face today bcs of those lil mofos.
I love the sound the wheels make when they met stone.
Me too, but don’t like the sound of my chin scraping the ground
I have a big nose, so it will possibly take much damage lol
Just get ready to tuck and roll, and then get used to it.
Obviously all this talk about stones and falling, he shouldn’t be taking advice from you!
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
