Whenever i think about it or when i'm asked who my favorite skater is, i never even hesitate to say rodney mullen. he's just a fucking genius. Whenever i think about it, i don't really have many favorite skaters that are new or up and coming. i guess the most relevant skaters that i watch are mike mo or the boss, i cant really get into the new shit. old skaters just had more style, people like nyjah are just fucking robots.

The majority of the people nowadays skate cause its "cool" fucking so many people skate cause they think its the shit and don't know anything about skating besides what a kick flip and an ollie are. Im a little 15 year old kid who breathes skating and I know my fucking skate history. Im not some dude who loves to watch the "New NYJAH huston video filmed all in HD because the better quality the camera the better the filming" no I fucking love to see the old skate vids like thrill of it all and photosynthesis! Long story short, skate cause its fun and realize where we came from

The whole board size thing really depends on the size of your feet. since you're just starting out it won't completely matter on the quality of the board. im not saying go out and buy a walmart board or anything, just something a little cheaper than regular. Try a minilogo, they're about 30 bucks and are great, just not for they way more experienced skater. i suggest reds berrings. just get used to cruising before you focus on too much, be comfortable and have a sense of balance before trying tricks. it always helps to make friends with other skater that can help. i help out a lot of younger skaters. trick tips usually help a lot but those are only to learn the footing and execution of the trick. you have to practice. you will get frustrated, you will fall, you will get hurt, but you will learn so much and meet so many cool people. its something to stick with. feel free to Put me on your buddy list on here if you ever need help with anything.

Kids these fucking days man. Its all about how many tricks are in your bag to them. its like new people(not all) coming into the skateboarding community don't even do it for the right reasons. yes, everybody at one time at least wants or wanted to be sponsored but thats all it is to some people. what happened to all the fun? people need to look back at their roots as skaters. I can't go to the fucking local park and find a guy doing a boneless. really??

This new book by Craig B. Snyder tells the story of the early concrete parks in extensive detail, including never before published photos and commentary from Alan "Ollie" Gelfand, Mike "McTwist" McGill, and scores of others. Craig has written and designed the book and is running a Kickstarter to pay for printing. You can check it out here.

Hi Everyone. I just put out a new issue of my skate zine. The last one I released was 2 years ago and a lot of people right here on Thrasher were very supportive, so I thought I'd make a post about the new one...

http://purefunskatezine.storenvy.com/...ate-zine-issue-11

The new issue features: Tod Swank, Mike Vallely, Awake Zine, Johnny Rad, Reviews, Photos and more!

Also, 3 lucky people out of the first 100 orders will receive a free Bonus Brigade DVD courtesy of Powell Peralta.

Thanks!

Try a bamboo deck. I was having a similar problem until I switched to bamboo. It has a slightly different feel than traditional maple boards, but it's lighter and stronger......virtually unbreakable. When I first got my deck, I did the stomp test....one foot, full force, directly onto the center of the board and it didn't break. You can flex, bend, pop, stomp, and throw them all over the place and they won't break. I read about one dude that said his board rolled out into the street, was run over by a truck, and he picked it up and kept skating. After two months of hard use, I'm just now seeing the first signs of pressure cracks on mine.
