Being bikeless I started filming with a board and today I got my first real line with it, and fuck is it hard
Can't turn easily, can't lose speed as fast, and it's extremely easy to lose balance so those who know me know I don't care for skating but just saying I have respect for them now, also I don't care if you guys can skate and it's "actually easier than biking" to you, I just don't
Anyways here's the clip that will never be used so you guys can at least see how bad I am at it
Skating is rad as fuck.....if I didn't hurt myself every time I got on a board id probably skate to
You'll get better with experience. Being a filmer, I'd be more worried about all the noise it makes. Especially being closer to the camera than anything else, it kinda drowns out other sounds. Get some fat cruiser wheels.. any cheap set will do. You'll be creeping like you're not even there. Or better yet, invest in a Penny board.(the 'Nickel' version) They steer super tight and smooth compared to a regular skateboard.
FREE not under the control or in the power of another; able to act or be done as one wishes
STYLE a particular, distinctive, or characteristic mode of action or manner of acting
a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
You didn't have respect for the skaters in the first place?
I still skate and i believe they are just as hard as each other. but in other areas.
I've always had respect for either, just never scooters
The first breath is the beginning of death
We have a chick do it. She can skate and film.
Love skating, cruiser board or a regular skateboard with cruiser wheels would be fine
I suggest slightly looser trucks when skate-filming. Better turning. I also suggest skating a bunch to get comfortable on the board.
I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.
