Haven't seen this question in the Tavern before, nice! =)

Ahm... I don't skate anymore (-at all-) as I'm a little more cautious to not break my bones (it's the age), but I did use to skate somewhat back in the days! =D

It wasn't anything fancy and I knew some tricks but I forgot their names...
- the one where you jump and let your board flip around in the long way (probably as stupid as a board flip, or something, LOL)
- the wheely on the back wheels whithout skidding the board
- the handbrake stop where you slide you board in a way that the rear surpasses the front
- the 180 degrees turn of your board while moving it!

If anyone knows the names of these tricks, feel free to fill them in at the appropriate places, because I really don't know what they are called... it's been over 25 years ago, so you have to give me a break there! ;)

I disagree spike. I think when I was younger I learned how to do an ollie on my brothers skateboard but at the time I just called it a jump and then he kind of explained that I was an idiot. But hey! That's what brothers are for right? I now know a bit more.

Anyway, I hate skating nowadays. Everybody uses long boards which I hate with a passion. Or then there's those people that just carry a skate board and don't use the things. At my school there's a bunch of "Skaters" who I seriously doubt even know how to do a kick-flip. In fact I don't think I've ever seen any of them step on the board. They just carry it in their hands and act like they're "Dope".

I think what really peaked my interest in skateboarding (Or rather my brothers) was Tony Hawks pro skater (Yes I know it's a bit sad). My brother was obsessed with the game and I think he spent hours finally finishing all levels 100%. I just sat in the background pretending I even knew what was happening. It's not until recently (Where I played the PS1 version again) that I've realised how awesome the game really is (And I learned all the names of the tricks too).

Oh and I probably know all hardcore skaters are going to kill me but I ride mongo. It absolutely annoys my brother so much but it just feels way more natural to me.

Really? That's a pretty shallow theory and conclusion spikeabc... (o.O)

First of all... I knew how to skate... we're talking about 25 years ago, ok? ;)
And let's put it this way... I know how to drive a car, but I don't know the name for every part in the motor that is running it either... does that make sense? ;)

i dont skate, its not worth it. does my logic need more explaination?

When you're stating this, your explanation is even less logical... =P

an ollie

Thank you leo99rules! =)

a kick-flip

Thank you again! =D

Ahm... now you got me leo, but what's 'mongo'? I probably sound WAY too old now, but meh... (o.O) LOL

Skating doesn't start to be worth it until you start to learn the more advanced tricks and get them down so you don't get shinned or break bones.

I think I might have a skateboard in my garage somewhere. Haven't used the thing in years and don't plan to.

I used to play classical hockey, not the oen with roller skates, the one with the skate of 2 in a row after other 2, liek a car. it was fun and not violante. my little brother is almost a proffetional, practice 3 times a week, adn going to the national team to his age. he is realy realy good. We also import skates, google "reno" and see for yourself. these are high quality skates and equipment, the company based on barcelona.

With a little luck it may be in the next olympics!
