Friday I spent my fine fall afternoon shredding a flow park with the crisp cold air of new england rushing against my face as i carved the transition.  Saterday the rain pounded the roof of the indoor park were kids with scooters and bikes could be seen everywhere as I tried to weave and skate.  Sunday I went and skated a contest at the rival skateshop of where I get my Love supplys,  I think I probably should of won but they gave it to the kid who did a kickflip bs 5050 with their shop board instead, favoritism is awesome.

A mellow little quarter just doing everything to fakie and everything to revert. 

Fun stuff.

I suppose they just mean it's an easy way out?  Such as....oh, example....okay frontside flip revert.  It's easier to revert than roll away fakie  I guess so it's sort of a cheat?  I never said it was good logic.

Skated with a bruised heel at the skatepark down the street.   

And for the revert comment.   I really may be lost on what kids think a revert is but there are plenty of tricks to revert that are way harder that coming in straight.    It could just depend on the person too.    But seriously back tail to bs or especially fs revert???     Way harder than a back tail come in foward on tranny.   In my opinion.   

Even with a fs flip...a fs flip to revert is essentially a full 360.   How the hell is that easier?

+1 on that. 

anyways, ask Lansing kids about the cheating shit, I'm all for reverts. 

But I do think it's easier to revert your shit than roll away fakie.  Another example...a simple one...kickflip on a bank then revert it so you're not rolling back out fakie.  You don't think that's an easier roll away?

Backside or frontside, same scenario. 
 


Title: Re: What did you skate this weekend?
Post by: elastic back on October 28, 2009, 05:59:29 AM
correct. if you backside flip backside revert, you go 360 degrees. now if you are talking about reverting back the way you came on either trick, then that is a whole another scenario.


Title: Re: What did you skate this weekend?
Post by: polly@bbt on October 28, 2009, 06:32:07 AM
let me give you the exact scenario I'm thinking of here.  Lansing park...there's a euro gap.  I was watching some kid throw what I swear was a frontside flip up it...and then *screech* revert it back around...instead of rolling away switch (not fakie, sorry that's where I was fucking up I believe).  That's not anything near a 360 anything...


either way I've got to be explaining something wrong.  I quit. 



Title: Re: What did you skate this weekend?
Post by: polly@bbt on October 28, 2009, 06:44:47 AM
it's not like painfully obvious that I haven't quite mastered frontside OR backside flips, huh? 

but yo if this 1980 I'd be pro as hell.


Title: Re: What did you skate this weekend?
Post by: omni on October 28, 2009, 07:40:51 AM
say someone dose a fakieflip and then they have to land switch so there balance will be off, they revert it back to regular given there are a few seconds of uncomfterble almost about to fall off the board rolling, so itll be easier, I think its cheating cause if someone sets it in a game of skate and the other person lands it with a revert he did it the easy way


Title: Re: What did you skate this weekend?

This all started with Sesuj's comment about reverts on a qp.   It sparked polly's comment about kids comments that I now understand had nothing to do with transition.   

If someone rolls fakie (switch whatevs) out of a landing I.E. a fs flip....rolls a foot or so then spins a quick "revert", well it wasn't like it was a trick.    It's just lack of control.   If it were all one fluid motion then yeah you could add on revert to the description of the trick......I suppose.     Revert usually only refers to transitions tricks though.   It makes it way easier.

Essentially a revert is an actual trick additive and not some spaz (i picture 12 year old) that can't handle rolling backwards.

a five foot ramp with a 6ft extension, and love seat in it.  This weekend I'm gonna skate those flumes the Phelper was talking about.  Either skate them or take pictures of the massive amount of water in them.

If they are going up a euro gap and they are not landing switch or fakie or whatever you want to say it is than that would be considered a shifty flip. As long as they catch it at least 90 degrees that is...

woke up- homie crashed at my place nite before, so we called the boys, no homo, and went to warm up on flat n curbs n such at the plaza right next to my place. got bored brought out the rail, decided this was pussy shit and went to the local elem school where they have purrrfect (and legit!) rails, found out we were pussies after only doing the smallest ones. skipped out went to a gap to pretty big brick (clakcety clackety clack) bank. just ollieing into it got me pumped. we all got some tricks there n left for the local park where we spent the rest of the day destroying with the destroyers. learned front lips on boxes/ledges. and fs airs on the quarter too. good sunday.

Its more slippery than before. It can be fun at times, when you arent sliding around, or running into the kids that do nothing but play flat ground skate.

There is still a 8 foot section missing on one of the shallow walls, but the deep end is smooth. It has a really good layout. The bank wall is fun to go up and revert on. All in all everything is smooth in the deep end, but the shallow end you gotta get use to vert tranny quick! They had a creature video premiere of hesh law to raise money so they can complete the wall, and the other project they have going on. That was really fun there were a lot of good skaters there.

Its pretty good, and the best part is they don't allow bikers in the bowl.

the coping is over a year old and has had many coats, cracks filled, bondo.  it gets crusty, but that just makes it gnarlier.  it's in a friends garage.  and boy is it fun to skate. 

4' x 20'. you can just make out the wall ride by the door, and opposite that is a small extension.

somewhere at the airport is this perfect looking pyramid. its got three sides and looks like something straight out of a skatepark. i hope u found that... i didnt get to skate it but i saw it from the car as we were leaving... and there were about 1000 ditches on every block surrounding the airport. and i got to skate not a damn one of them cause it was raining...

Yeah, airports usually have some pretty good spots to skate. O'hare really doesn't have that many, except at the international terminal, but Midway has some awesome ditches and ledges and banks...

Ever since I was a little kid I've wanted to skate baggage claim though...

We tried to break into the local university and skate a perfect 7 stair with a ledge. After getting in the building we were stopped by a big lock on a steel door that we couldn break, just few feet away from the spot, so we went outside again. We found a steep bank to wall and we all learnt wallrides. Pretty rewarding plus we found a place in the university where we can skate flat ground when raining.

Yeah, I definitely tried. I dunno why I couldn't land them. This was really my first curved rail attempt ever. It was just a weird feeling for me I guess. Or the more likely scenario is I'm just not that skilled at hitting rails...

But even without landing, it was definitely fun.

A bank to curb at the transmission shop, my 2' quarter in my shop, and the windsor co skatepark.  For me, it was just good to get out and skate after hurting my ankle 3 weeks ago.  And because it was only 30 degrees out and windy, we had the park all to ourselves.

i didn't get to skate anything this weekend.  but tonite i'm going to the bar for a night of "skate culture and appreciation".  local dj's, artwork, old friends and even a game of skate in the bar. it's berrics rules though. maybe i can pull a mike v.  the handplant stuff, not the fighting stuff.

well i thought this was lame.  i guess i expected more. friends were rad to see, but the whole skating/culture thing blew chuncks.  i had more fun skating the curb out front while waiting for the doors to open.

at least i got to skate.

Yesterday, I skated for the first time in 1.5 weeks. It always feels so much better when you have to wait for it. (...twss). I even made a FS fiddy' in the NSB bowl, which is normally out of my league. Anyone else find that you skate better after taking a break?

My guess is you meant to say "you can't drink at public skateparks," which is completely false.  If you can't figure out a way to drink beer anywhere you want to, then you're doing it wrong.

Most of the time when I stop my body stiffens up and I'm done, although on a rare occasion I get a second wind after a ten minute break.  I'd say my best skating nowdays is within the first 40 minutes then I get tired or bored unless its a good session with my homies.

Or really old tranny riders.  There was this 55 year old dude riding this bowl at stapleton.  He was doing some pretty sick grinds etc, but he couldn't ollie on the flat at all.

I was envious of his tranny skills and he was wishing he was better at street.  I guess the grass is always greener.

The concrete banks look fun and that’s true, but what I’m talking about is the yellow curb in the background. This spot is about a year old but the school has been there since the birth of California. The curb is double sided and goes on forever, but the best part is that there’s a one foot bank leading up to it on one side… epic.
It’s kind of an up hill run to the bank to curb but you can carve your downhill motion to give enough speed so it’s like an perpetual motion machine… ride up, land a trick, carve down hill, come back up and hit it again…fun

same here. basics are where it's at. a 16yr old asked me if it was hard to skate at 35.  i said, does it look hard for me? because if it doesn't, then i'm stoked.

i drove out to vancouver last weekend. didn't skate because i got sick while there. lame. anyways, stopped off at this little park in Salmon Arm BC, on the way home. i had stopped there a couple years ago and they were just finishing it up. couldn't skate it as some of the welders were finishing up the metal work. it was pretty fun and a nice way to get a break from the drive.

I have friends who dream of working at Tradder Joe's...

Skated that banked yellow curb school again to start out my Saturday, took a nap, woke up and went to Dallas Park, which is probably the only 24/7 no pads no hassle park in San Diego… such a perfect laid back Saturday.

Sunday I skated Robb Field Skate Park, lunch, played the Skate 3 demo and then blue curb sesh at Ben Franklin… world’s stupidest tricks go on right here

(http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t238/joedalton/bluecurbs.jpg)

Ended Sunday with a birthday skate jam in a parking lot, I got to test out my “traveling quarter/launch ramp” and skated this thing… funest thing I’ve ever skated in a parking lot

(http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t238/joedalton/Mobile%20Uploads/Photo348.jpg)

Skatepark Velodroom, Oostende, Belgium. Wasn't that much of people, so could skate as much as one wanted. Tried some news tricks; must work further on those, but was real fun. Also fun was the real halfpipe, untill I streched the muscles of my right knee (due to I got hit by a car 10y ago); better some rest now.

Out of a handful of cars that have crashed into my favorite skate park, I finally saw this one when it happened

There was about a hundred kids and I'd hadn't had one good run all day, once the car slid over the Jersey barrier and into the fence the whole park ran to see what was going on; I had about 10 minutes to myself of clear park on a Saturday... so stoked. Heard the first thing the driver did was jump out of his car and pour out a bottle of vodka.

The roll in/channel brings back memories of a ramp in Janesville MN, it was between 12-14 ft high and 24 ft wide with the roll in another 3 feet or so higher. It was the first half pipe I ever skated. So I climb up on the roll in and the old dude(26) that owned the ramp said I'd better try it with his board as my trucks were to loose. He hands me his McGill; the one with the fighter jet graphics and next thing I know I was laid out on the flat. I nailed it next time with my Grigley Hippie Stick. Needles to say looking at pics of the ramp you skated is getting me psyched. Looks like a rippin good time.

Two weeks ago I was at a skatepark and a guy on a motorcycle crashed into a barrier beside the park going fast and got wrecked. He was running from the cops and there was even a police helicopter and everything. There were probably thirty people at the park, but I was the only one to see the whole crash, and it was gnarly. He got up pretty quick and threw his license plate into the bushes, but he looked pretty hurt. Then he had to sit in handcuffs for awhile before an ambulance came.

Anyways, same thing. Park to myself for a good 10 or 15 minutes.

Mostly my drive way. it has a slope at the end of it and is slanted. Pefect to just skate around and do basic tricks like ollies, nollies, pivots, manuals, reverts, and powerslides. I also found out you can do powerslides in my cluttered kitchen and when the floor is slick you can get huge pop. I fel down 3 different times.

Somehow we lucked out with a sunny, warm day on the weekend, which was not preceded by a snowstorm.   Got my flatground on at a stretch of sidewalk with a sunbeam and no snow.  Plus I tipped over and set-up one of those orange plastic construction barriers for some sliding activities.  I felt super rusty, and my whole setup is garbage, but it was still great.

Somehow we lucked out with a two sunny, warm days on the weekend.


I got to lurk a bunch of favorite spots for the first time this year, including the bench with the short run-up and obstructed landing, now free from the ice:
(http://c0013664.cdn1.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/x2_4cd26f0)
It further developed the chip which is my board's nose.

A new spot I found, right by my house, watch out for the broken glass:

Its not the weekend, but my buddy and I skated a bank to wall on the back of a local police station last night. I've known the spot was there for a while, and seeing as how I'm moving Friday we decided it was worth the risk. Got in an hour long session with no kick out. Could hear people in the room above the spot too. Guess North Catasauqua police have better things to worry about, even when their not worrying about it.

Aug 11th for 10 days. I'll mostly be on the island. Have to check out the new Tofino and Ucleulet parks, for sure. The rest of the plan is still up in the air. If you're around the area at the time def let me know. I have a layover in Calgary but I don't think I'll even be getting off the plane. Otherwise it would be super rad to meet up for a shred. One of these days...

I think its more of an NYC thing.  I don't feel like I've really seen any of them outside of the city, but they are all over the place here.  They look perfect for skating, but are harder to shred then one would think just from looking at them.  If I found one near me that I knew was permanent, I would use two bags and make it perfect; however, its hard to say how long the two on this corner will be there, so I'm just going to try and give them a couple targeted globs of crete to make it so I can charge onto them with more speed and actually catch a good grind and not just a tickler.

Then I skated this new indoor CONCRETE park named PLAZA SKATE PARK in Rutland City,VT!!!! It's tight and techy with great flow and a bowl with granite coping on the low end!!! The park is mostly aimed at street with a brick embankment, 6 stair with 16ft business ledge and 30in hand rail. Plus many other ledges and tranys and embankments and dragon tail..... Check this place out for your need to skate concrete on bad weather days or on vacation!!!!! Oh and it's 20min from Killington Ski area!!!

Just got back from my Van Island/Sunshine Coast trip a couple days ago. Took my skate of course. Hit up Tofino (http://i.imgur.com/dmLFa.jpg), Ucluelet (http://i.imgur.com/e7sD0.jpg), and Victoria West (http://i.imgur.com/VUGty.jpg) parks (the really old and original section of Vic West that was shralped in the first Whiskey video is on the right hand side). Ucluelet is so sick. Would love to skate that place for a few weeks at least.  Not a massive park but the space is used so well. Fucking smooth and super fast.

Had a good session last night. Few new tricks too! FS Sweeper on some jersey barrier thing and a 5-0 on a spine. Most likely NOT skating a contest this weekend due to Cape Cod being buttfucked by a tornado warning and hurricane. Apparently, Phelper pissed off the gods haha.

I scored about 8 of these things and had no means of moving them, so I had a friend drop them off at WSVT for me and I let everyone know that they were up for grabs. Now they're starting to pop up in spots all over SD.

My friend Rene (http://youtu.be/ME5rHTr-Wy4) spent almost the whole week building a bowl in his back yard. When I got there at 5 last night for the BBQ they couldn't figure out how to put the last ply on the bowl, so instead of skating and partying I spent the next four hours finishing the bowl. It would have gone faster if the coping wasn't there.

my best friend was in town this weekend so we took him to the airdrie park and the cochrane park. good times were had. he's had a few recent knee surgeries so it was rad to see him in the bowl, doing flatground ollies and some tranny 50-50's.

hey bucky! the bowl at the cochrane park is the same as the ucluelet bowl you posted last page.

Next time you come to the coast, let me know if you wanna skate.

Have you checked out Queensborough or Chuck Bailey yet?
Leeside, plaza and Hastings, in that order are my favorites, but Kensignton, bonsor, strath, and the first two mentioned are all golden as well.

^ Good for you Rob those Creature dudes are on a long ass US tour. I just don't understand why your right hand hits the "v" button instead of the "u"?

I skated what I always skate on the weekend some fucking curbs... stoked!

One of my usual weekend spots was in rare form yesterday. 

http://quartersnacks.com/spots/uptown-manhattan/harlem-morningside/lenox-ledges/ (http://quartersnacks.com/spots/uptown-manhattan/harlem-morningside/lenox-ledges/)

Highlights included a weave getting thrown in the street and a subsequent brawl between two middle-aged women and a different middle-aged woman dropping her pants and relieving herself off the edge of the subway platform below the spot.

I'm finding that successfully pulling off any tricks on the metal box is quite difficult.

That looks beyond rad.

I did plenty of park hopping this weekend. I even skated this cruddy little skatepark I haven't been to since I started skating. It feels good to be able to blast kick flips over this bench there that I could barely even ollie over. Feels good man.

I was in New Mexico visiting in-laws last week.  They warned me that I was probably going to have a hard time finding skate parks but knowing NM's reputation for ditches I wasn't the least bit concerned and I found some really fun shit.  Concrete was surprisingly smooth, just had to sweep some pebbles out of the way...

Literally got snaked by a rattle snake, don't have a clue where he came from but he was coming straight at me from behind on the flat when I glanced back and saw him out of the corner of my eye...

Fisherman sitting on the box and barbequing on the bank make it more difficult, so I've been working on tricks at some other spots the last few weekends:

Mental health facility-fun spot to get kicked out of

Paver banks-require lots of extra pushes (01:48):
