    Default Where do I go from here

    Basicly I've recently hit a wall in skating all off my current tricks (ollies kickflips bs shuv it variants a few boneless stuff) are clean and need low work but I don't know what to learn now I could go for heels (nowhere near but I'd love to learn) varials (close but not bothered) some freestyel/olds school stuff (no where to begin) or maybe work on tryign to get my tricks into 180 (painful to learn and fairly unapealing)

    And no I'm not content to just ride around with what I got I wanna learn stuff

    Just keep doing what you are doing. try to hit those varial flips and heelflips. and work on your fakie and nollie tricks. learn some bigspins too. If you need help, subscribe to my youtube account and send me a message of a trick tip you want. (:

    Hope skating stays great for you.

    frontside shove its are a good addition,

    fakie tricks like fakie bigspins, fakie 360 shove its and halfcab kickflips are not too difficult to learn and fun to do!

    Darnit! I can't get the song "Love Plus One" by Haircut 100 out of my head now that I read this thread title.



    I'd suggest new terrain instead of new tricks. Get a longboard and flow and carve. Buy some slide-gloves, find a hill, and learn technical-slides. Go to the local skatepark and learn some vert. If there is no vert, build a ramp. If you have no job and no money to build a ramp, get creative - find scrapwood and get to work. There is ALWAYS something creative to do with skateboarding. You're never limited. Look at Rodney Mullen. The guy is super-creative and never got bored even though he was just skating on a flat slab of concrete! Get imaginative.

    Aw, that's a bummer. I've never hated any type of skateboading. I love ALL disciplines. Longboards. Vert. Skatepark transitions. Backyard pools. Downhill. Street. Technical sliding. It's all so much fun!

    But, as long as you're enjoying the skating you do, that's what matters.

    In this thread you said you were visiting a skatepark for the very first time and you left because you got bored. That was only a week ago!

    As you know, every skatepark is different. Some suck. Some are awesome. I've been to some skateparks that were awful and I'd never go back again. Others skateparks freakin' amazing and have fantastic terrain to skate and super cool people to hang with.

    If you hated the skatepark you went to, that's fine. That doesn't mean they're all bad though. I understand that you're in England you're only 14, so you can't just hop in the car and drive yourself to another park and you don't have as many parks to pick from as we do here in California. But someday, when you have a chance to visit other parks, definitely take advantage of the opportunity. You might find one you really enjoy!

    It was shoreham skate park the one with the massive pool bowl and tbh I suck **** at park I tried to learn but I don't really find it any fun and I find everything in a park scary, I'm not saying ooh its scary I don't wanna do it but to me the very real threat of bailing badly on a quarter pipe is less apealing then learning a new trick that I can be proud of and show my friends/parents or whatever, street skating is about skating basicly anytime anywhere (as long as the ground is smooth enough) and park to me seems to be 200 kids waiting for 30 seconds on a quarter pipe and kids to scared to try and learn because there are to many people in the park and no matter how good you are at park there are only a few parks while on the streets there are endless amounts of spots, so basicly I'm not interested in park.
