I’m Null and would like to see how many of us use our boards to grind and slide etc in skateparks
and the streets. I believe this topic could be used to help show what can be done to create a board
that is made for extreme park riding. As well as maybe share tips on how not to eat concrete.
Every board around here is like a work of art. No one wants to scratch a £100 enclosure.
What you find here is go fast on street or go fast on dirt. Electric skateboards and skateparks is like a niche of a already niche hobby
That’s the sickest e-mtb video in skate park I’ve ever seen., just watched it several times.
That’s the first time I see someone grinding, so rad!
For those lazy guys who don’t click the link in OP here the video of @NullBlox
My motors are very close to the hanger so I’m afraid to slide on the trucks like you. Did you slide on a rail with the middle of the deck already? I’m tempted to try it it but am afraid it could hurt. I have no sliding/grinding experience at all.
Meanwhile I made progress but here some footage of skate park from last year
Dude, no jokes your videos inspired me a ton! Ive seen these but watched them again!
Yes I can and have done board slides on them. The red board in the video has pack bolted on.
That one sees the board slides, the green one Ive not decided on the mounting. So refrain from the slides. I’ll post a video soon of some board slides for proof as well as fun! I come from over 10+ years of push boarding the streets. So aside from the weight in the boards, I think we all can go pretty HAM!
My mounts are Janux and allow me to put them almost against the tail, keeping the motors up for
grinds like 5/0 and 50/50. The goal is to learn most of my push board tricks aside from kick flips etc
on the E-MBS board. Its becoming a new addiction to be honest. I wake up and now dream of that hubba ledge and things I can do onto and off it.
Well the finger flip was a fail that bent my x-bars.
Hammer fixed it but the flip was not so intended.
I’ll make a fails comp eventually. I have a few clips of me pretty much landing on the mounts.
Its one of those, YES and NO moments!
Im 34 now, So Im not sure the age is really an issue.
Side note: My friend is pushing a bit over 50 and still rides the half pipes with me on push boards.
These MBS decks and Trampa decks are built to hold the weight, at least from my experience.
They have 2-3 more ply’s from the standard 7 layer push deck.
I feared breaking the middle on board slides but thats yet to happen.
Im sure it can and eventually will if I don’t keep check on my shit.
Start mellow and go as big as you feel you can!
Skateboarding is about pushing your own limits no matter how big or small.
When you land what ever you are going after, we will all be here to cheer on your accomplishments!
At least thats how the locals and such at my parks roll.
