      Destroyed my ankles doing it as a teen, but wouldn't change a thing if I could do it again. I miss those summer days of riding around with the boys and just trying to do tricks. We weren't good by any means, but it was some of the most fun I've ever had, even if I was falling on my ass most of the time.

                Fun exercise is the best exercise because you'll end up doing it longer than you plan to. Don't ever shit on fun exercise.

                That being said, you're all cunts for not wearing helmets and using peer pressure to get other kids to not wear helmets.

                Not really. I also don't think being able to do 1 muscle-up is a benchmark for fitness. The point is, if you are a functional human, you should be able to move your body through space. And if you can't even do a 5k, you are not fit and that is pathetic. But there's many people on this board who think fitness = how your body looks (with a pump and in good lighting). That's how people end up worshipping zyzz, for example, who was so out of shape that he died in his 20's of a heart attack—something that doesn't even happen to morbidly obese people.

                It's much easier to convince yourself that you're a fit and functional human when you don't actually challenge your body and just do the same 3 sets of 5 reps over and over and over again.

                "Genetic heart condition" could mean literally anything. 25% of people have a genetic heart condition. Zyzz died because he was extremely unhealthy and unfit due to his abuse of steroids among other things. If you can't admit this, you are objectively in extreme denial. Bodybuilding is not fitness. Keep coping and seething.

                btw, you realize that no one else in Zyzz's family died at 22 right lol.

          That applies when people in a bad situation try to hold others down in the same bad situation. It's the opposite here: I'm trying to keep you out of a bad situation. Being a 30+ year old non-professional skateboarder hanging out at your local park with teenagers and children is among the saddest things you could do.
          There are much better activities you can do to get exercise and not look like a gay manchild. Skiing is pretty good.

                lol you've watched one too many Ben Shapiro videos—we're not arguing anything. You are calling me fat and a pedophile for liking to ride on a board with wheels while roleplaying as a dignified and morally superior fit person.

                Assuming you're the same person, your morals don't even make sense. How is it cringe to skateboard as a non-professional but not cringe if you are a professional, despite professional skateboarders being groomers? You have a lot of incongruous thoughts in your head. That's why I think you are young and don't actually have a son, wife or family. You're just an angry kid who takes pride in random things like skiing (lmao) for whatever reason.

    Any old boomers here who picked up skateboarding after a long hiatus? I haven't skated for like 15+ years and i want to take it up again casually when spring comes as its one of the most fun sports i've ever done. Bought a new board recently and was able to land a standstill heelflip on first try even after all these years so a tleast some kind of muscle memory is there even though my balance is dogshit. I just need to drop another 4-5kg and i should be within range of not hurting myself to bad when i fall.

    It's actually great cardio, I skated daily for 12-13 years and occasionally after that.
    I'd be a fat fuck during the winter months when I'd only get to roll around at the skatepark or in a small space and balloon up to 250-270 lbs., then, when we'd be at end of summer, I'd be back down to 210-225 lbs. and feel good. I literally lived off pizza, soda and junk food for most of my life up to age 25 and it still helped me lean out considerably when I'd be out in the streets with my friends every day rolling around.
    I miss that shit, might have to pick it back up heading into my 50s before long and do what I can.

      It probably won't take you more than a week to learn the motions of an ollie, but it'll take months to get a good, "leveled out" ollie.
      Some advice, Make sure you're not just sliding your foot up, but emphasize the forward motion.
      Moving your foot up then "through the board" forward is whats gonna bring up the tail up to your back foot.

      Also, an ollie is seen as an easy trick, but it's kind of hard and specific.
      If you're having a large amount of trouble with it, it might be helpful to learn manuals or shuvits instead to gain more board control.
      With manuals you can just practice them whenever you're riding around and they're super fun.
