longboarding is awesome crosstraining...
ive been into longboarding for the past 3 years or so. well, i havent done much cause i always mt biked. well, my bike is screwed up, and i busted out my shitty old deck and hit the hills. the local loop is about a mile and a half downhill, about 1000 ft uphill, 1000 ft back down, and then a quick steep road to the top. ive probably made about 30 loops this weekend, and man, my legs are noodles. cause you are crouching all the time (and then walking back uphill)its really good for your legs endurance. plus, its is so goood for your rail balance, specially when you are doing upwards of 30 miles an hour. and besides that, its wicked fun. im gonna start a new sliding board for a scholarship art contest, and then a foamcore & composite dropped DH deck, laminated with carbon. too nad winters almost here.
I drink pepto bismal like its water.. -PJO
until you roll off your long board and break your kneck in 4 places, even after the 9 hour surgery where they fix you so you can live in a wheelchair for the rest of your life the concrete fucked your face so bad hookers run in fear.
^damn fine post, damn fine.
I think Anthony Boronowski in general is just a phase.
dude longboard is awwesom and ive never fallen so its even better hooooorah
the people who get hurt falling are the ones that dont bail. once you know your gona fall you just let yourself fall, tuck and role
the people who get hurt are the ones who try to stop their fall, usually that just makes their fall worse.
Its winter, the birds have all flown south, all but one. One little bird that waited too long. As it flew to catch it's buddies it got icicles on its wings and fell to the ground. The bird then saw a nice looking branch at the top of a nearby tree and it said to a nearby cow, 'I want to reach that top branch but I donít have then energy to fly up, can you help?' The cow said, 'Here, eat some of my poop it'll fuel you to climb up the tree.' The little bird said, 'Thanks!' and had some of the cow poop. The bird flew up to the first branch of the tree and rested, then the next day flew to the next branch, until finally the bird reached the top branch. Then the farmer came out with a shotgun...
The moral of the story is, bullshit may get you to the top, but it wont keep you there.
Yeah, I've come off at around 35 and I was able to roll into it and I was wearing a helmet. It scared the hell out of me and I was shaking all over for like ten minutes, but I was totally fine after that. Pads are key. The last part of the fall I was sliding along my head upside-down and the visor saved my face.
Jeff: Hey Geoff, did Ronny tell you not to wear any boxers so he could rape you better?
Geoff: No, I just put my boxers on backwards so the hole is in the back...it's alot easier that way.

no matter what longboard falls friggen hurt like a motha
my friend showed me how to make some sick gloves and how to do all the slides but i need to get a longboard
Most kids who try to longboard just bomb hills, and that can be fun and a rush and all, but the sick and fun kind of longboarding is when you loosen your trucks a bit and just carve down hills. That's what takes some skills and can actually be fun to watch.
Girls don't like sensitive guys. Since I don't treat women like objects, I have to treat objects like women.

tighten the trucks a little
Three aspects to longboarding.
As said, there is tightening the trucks all the way and rushing the hills going 30. Fun if you have a bunch of friends that do it and you can race.
Loosening the trucks all the way so that you can carve a U-turn the width of half a streetwidth. Also very fun, as is power carving.
all are fun, keep on riding.
We'll have you dead pretty soon.
