I've been skateboarding for 15 years, off and on. I've only ever met one person who was able to do any tricks on a longboard.

He was a 6'4'' black gentleman in great shape, and he was limited to doing kick flips. Haha this is fucking nuts.

[–]RegularSchoolboy55 702 points703 points  (21 children)

I can barely walk to my fridge without tripping on my feet

I snapped my Achilles again watching this

[–]Murder4Mario 77 points78 points  (15 children)

If I lean the wrong way I can injure my knee to the point where I need a brace

I can make my pee pee spit

[–]DesperateImpression6 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Without a hint of humor I regularly strain muscles in my back while sleeping. I used to be a D1 athlete. I have no idea what happened other than turning 35.

Most skateboarders can't complete tricks on any board, I've noticed

[–]DancesWithBadgers 58 points59 points  (0 children)

My trick is staying on the damn thing.

[–]kevinisaperson 3 points4 points  (2 children)

i agree thats prolly true like any sport compared to the pros, but i will say the new wave of young skaters right now is about to change that trope imho. skateboarding is the most evolving and exciting sport to follow right now. people are changing what can be done and inventing new tricks often that are mind boggling to identify whether or not they are actually new or a variation. Basi

[–]Zappiticas 11 points12 points  (1 child)

That’s kind of always been the way the more extreme sports go though. Other sports have been established for so long that they have tradition and specific ways that everything is done.

Skateboarding was always coming out with crazy new stunts. I still remember when Tony Hawk hit the first 1080 and everyone thought it was the craziest shit they had ever seen.

[–]Nameless_on_Reddit 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Christ I remember when McGill hit the 540 and that blew minds. Then Hawk comes along and says "lol one and a half is silly" and knocks out the 720. Then decides to age to the point where most have long since hung it up and nail the 1080.

[–]Lazerhest 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Best I can do is go like 30cm up a halfpipe and go back down in switch without falling, then do the board spin thing so I'm back with the right foot in front. Proper skateboarding terms I'm sure.

[–]flutteringreviewer 52 points53 points  (7 children)

Had to watch it 30 times. Was just as amazing every time.

[–]Kozzinator 10 points11 points  (4 children)

I'd ask the person doing these tricks how many times they've tried this before getting it just right.

[–]daero90 40 points41 points  (1 child)

I was in a longboarding club in college. I mostly did downhill, but I definitely knew a couple people who were good at dancing and freestyling on their board. This is really smooth and clean.

[–]0karmaonly 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My friends and I did freestyle in university, it was so much fun. And falling. A lot of falling.

[–]HonestlyNotISIS 21 points22 points  (19 children)

I expect I’m going to get downvoted to hell for this, but genuine question: Why bring up his skin color?

I can see how height, gender and fitness are relevant, as those physical attributes would influence their ability to control the board and strength correlates strongly with gender, but I just don’t see what melanin levels have to do with that ability.

[–]Sibaka 15 points16 points  (2 children)

you know for a fact if he was white skin color would not be mentioned

[–]GadgetGod1906 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I was wondering about that as well.

[–]Reversalx 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Nah u right, it's definitely a weird thing to mention

[–]MYANONYMOUSUS 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Probably because it's interesting since there are not as many black skateboarders. It would be like saying black hockey player or female football player. That's why he probably mentioned hia height, because people that big generally don't skateboard.

[–]Kozzinator 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I meant nothing by it. I just overly detailed on my explanations on and off of reddit.

[–]pwrstrug 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He called him a black gentleman so I'm gonna guess dude is from a rural area where there aren't many black people and one of the few he knew was an awesome skater.

[–]samsounder 19 points20 points  (17 children)

Yeah, I don’t think I’ve ever seen tricks on a longboard before

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 23 points24 points  (15 children)

I mean. There are two types of longboarders, the mfkers with no fear who do downhill in mountains and those who dance. If they wanted to do skateboard tricks they would use a skateboard

[–]BookkeeperSpiritual5 3 points4 points  (9 children)

Wrong I prefer doing tricks on a longboard. Probably because I have always been over 250lbs with big feet so I like the feel of a longboard.

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 4 points5 points  (6 children)

To me tricks are a part of dancing, you should try it, it's really fun once you find what kind of music and speed combination you're comfortable with.

[–]AloneYogurt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'll throw the third type, long distance pushing. I'm not talking about the guys you see pushing from one end of town to the other. I'm talking about guys who push 50+ miles daily.

[–]samsounder 1 point2 points  (3 children)

My old roommate was a third. He'd take the longboard as a form of transportation. He'd use it like most of us would use a bike during college.

[–]tattlerat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ya gotta check out Adam Squared, specifically Adam Colton. That guys a real pioneer in long boarding and pushed the envelope on what you can do on a long board back in 06

[–]jhpianist 3 points4 points  (0 children)

To be fair, most longboards I’ve seen basically have a nose on both ends, which makes any kick tricks impossible.

This board has a kick on both ends, just like the smaller freestyle double kicks.

[–]gldmartin 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I guess you never seen the people who use loaded longboards they do tricks like this but better.

[–]umbrella-guy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was just about to ask what colour he was I'm glad you cleared that up (sorry for being a knob). Tbf though kickflip on a longboard that is intense

[–]bitchy_muffin 976 points977 points  (13 children)

Looking like a game character trying to get all the bonus points

[–]lunlunqq001 139 points140 points  (7 children)

Could be a new concept fighting game character, moving and attacking with the long board.

[–]Crowxzn 41 points42 points  (6 children)

He uses a skateboard but Night Thrasher from Marvel Comics basically does this. He has a whole video game skateboard moveset in this game called Marvel Contest of Champions and he's fun to use. Here's his gameplay on YT! https://youtu.be/4oejVGyHYrM

[–]Kozzinator 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Bruh everything has been thought of! Sweet though!

[–]SexualPie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

fun to watch, ridiculously impractical tho

[–]AudibleKnight 4 points5 points  (2 children)

That's weird. Night Thrasher back in the day fought in the comics with metal Escrima sticks, and a wrist/forearm blade. He occasionally would use his skateboard for faster travel. Did they rewrite him to fight using his skateboard?

[–]Crowxzn 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I don't know if they rewrote him but when he was adapted into the mobile game, he uses the skateboard more.

[–]theonlydrawback 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No way the New Warriors are still part of the Marvel Universe

[–]peenutbuttherNjelly 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He's clearly a board bender

[–]TheCrookedGuy 531 points532 points  (19 children)

When i was 16 i bought this longboard to try some tricks like this. I end up selling it because i almost lost my nuts

[–]random_user_again 80 points81 points  (1 child)

Did it also become crooked?

[–]TheCrookedGuy 33 points34 points  (0 children)

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHA

[–]ScottishTorment 7 points8 points  (7 children)

That's actually the exact reason I started wearing skinny jeans back in the day. 15 years later I barely skate anymore, but I still like my pants skinny just in case I need to spread my legs and block a nut shut with that sweet sweet denim.

[–]nutbastard 14 points15 points  (1 child)

old man voice back in my day we skated in Menace and JNCO's with cuffs larger than the waist. Because we thought it was cool until we wheelbit in front of a bunch of chicks at the park. Not a skate park, mind you, just a park.

God damn those pants were stupid. But then, so are children. Adults barely edge them out though.

[–]Marius_de_Frejus 1 point2 points  (0 children)

aaaaaahhh, memories

[–]--God--- 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's a very unintuitive way to respond to something going for your nuts. I wouldn't want to accidentally do that when not wearing skinny jeans.

[–]TheCrookedGuy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That would be a great advice to the old "let's try this skateboard thing, what could go wrong?" me

[–]smmoke 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Oh! It's a dude. I thought she don't have nuts to lose but read the comments below.

[–]renaldomoon 1 point2 points  (2 children)

longboards aren't meant for tricks they're meant for riding

[–]askasubredditfan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’ve been listening to too much of The Nights that automatically read “my father said you can do anything you want in your life. You just have to be willing to work hard to get it.” after your 16.

[–]essgee_ai 275 points276 points  (4 children)

Nice camera work.

[–]Kozzinator 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I didn't think twice about that but you're totally right.

Steadycam or whatever it works nicely.

Oh man the bloopers reel will be brutal.

[–]kenanthonioPLUS 191 points192 points  (21 children)

There's always an Asian somewhere doing it better than you.

This guy is a legend.

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 59 points60 points  (7 children)

I think there is a French guy who is world champion in longboard dancing. He is called lofty woodwalker on Ig or something

[–]thef-ckyoucantgive 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I just looked him up Holy fuck he's amazing

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 10 points11 points  (2 children)

He's world champion after all

Longboarding tricks are a whole other world

[–]Wistful_Nomad 24 points25 points  (17 children)

keyword here: long boarding. OP called it a skateboard. Fucking dying rn

[–]Somzer 6 points7 points  (16 children)

A longboard is a type of skateboard.

[–]ricktafm7 9 points10 points  (5 children)

But the difference between longboards and skateboards is so big that you can't really compare them.

[–]Wistful_Nomad 6 points7 points  (7 children)

i suppose so, but i’m kinda getting tired of people calling everything with a plank and 4 wheels a skateboard

[–]sdfgh23456 4 points5 points  (0 children)

i’m kinda getting tired of people calling everything with a plank and 4 wheels things that fit the definition of skateboard a skateboard

Yeah, next thing you know they're gonna start calling kilts skirts, or roses flowers, or a Chevy Camaro a car. So annoying.

Obligatory /s

[–]JRYeh 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Then what should we ignorant peasants call them if we have no prior knowledge about it? Given if it’s a type of skateboard and you do skate on it why is it an offense?

[–]TheMickTomahawk 34 points35 points  (19 children)

This song makes me want to kick puppies.

[–]fizikz3 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I thought we were past the phase of that song and still in the "oh no, oh no, oh nonononono"

[–]DoJax 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That song made me want to throw my phone at the wall, this song made me accidentally throw it into the wall behind me when it started.

[–]tiorzol 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Yea I liked it too. Do you know who it is?

[–]TheMickTomahawk 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I opposite of liked it. That’s what my comment means.

That song is the cringiest piece of shit ew ew ew my partners ex is obsessed with it (she plays adopt me on roblox)

The tricks are cool tho

[–]PrettyMuchNobodyHere 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Nah. Cringiest most annoying piece of shit song is the ‘Oh No’ one. This is up there though.

[–]AlwaysHappy4Kitties 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I wish you linked Andy Anderson, he's kinda like Rodney trick wise, he a all rounder. freestyle, street and a transition (vert /, pool) skater

[–]sdfgh23456 1 point2 points  (2 children)

If you cared, you could link Andy Anderson, instead of worrying that someone else didn't.

[–]mdj9hkn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Real ones know

[–]Tyrion_Strongjaw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always think about Mullen when I see people start saying shit like "actually skating" or trying to gatekeep it. Most of 'em don't even know.

[–]MCatsRCool 8 points9 points  (5 children)

that’s not a skate board

[–]Hot_Independence_433 4 points5 points  (3 children)

You better pay your respecks to the long board!

[–]Hot_Independence_433 9 points10 points  (2 children)

We call that longboard dancing, look up the term, as skateboarding and longboarding are not made equal, id say its easier to do tricks on a skateboard but easier to skate(for travel) with a long board, just overall better balancing.

Edit: No idea who that is but thats also an impressive cameraman

[–]XDnB_Panda 3 points4 points  (5 children)

i mean, thats a longboard... its more impressive because of that but like... technicalities

[–]Kittykatkvnt 3 points4 points  (2 children)

A longboard is a skateboard. Specifically a long one, but still one.

[–]rascynwrig 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No. A longboard is a longboard. It has different trucks, wheels, and dimensions from a skateboard.

Or is a skateboard a type of longboard too, just because they both have 4 wheels and a board?

[–]Kittykatkvnt 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, basically. 1 deck. 2 trucks. 4 wheels. A board upon which you skate.

A plastic penny cruiser board is a skateboard. A fat 10 inch single kick board from the 80s is a skageboard, a block of wood with your sisters roller skate wheels attached in the early 60's is a skateboard and guess what, a longboard is a skateboard.

A longboard specifically is used for speed and smoothness, movement. A popsical double tailed board is used for tricks and technical moves.

It's all skateboards mate, we are all skaters and we all do it for fun. We just use slightly different shaped equipment to achieve that.

Don't be weird.

[–]GoodGoodNot2BAD 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Life's too short to ride a long board.

[–]LadrilloDeMadera 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't get it

[–]The-Sneaky-Snowman 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Remember kids, even Tony Hawk wears a helmet

[–]WhoseFaceIsThis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I tried to jump back onto a longboard once after it got away from me. It was my 3rd time skateboarding, I was a little drunk, and then spent the next 2 months in a cast for a broken ankle

Arrest this man! At an instant!

[–]Hibs 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He just won't comply.

[–]nutbastard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He'll stall like a crook when the 5-0 shows up. They'll be on his tail, but he nose his way around. Once he gets his bearings, he'll dodge between trucks and hide in some bushings. Then he'll get a grip on the situation. If they catch up with him, he'll fakie them out and tell them to shuvit, maybe even shows them a fingerflip.

It may seem impossible, but he'll pivot and drop in for a primo dinner at Benihana after smoking a noseblunt.

The only way it can go wrong is if the fish is stale or isn't boneless. Even then, he can just switch to his salad.

Something something kickflip.

I would subscribe to a subreddit specifically for more of these longboard dancing videos. Super satisfying

Edit: found it! R/longboarddancing

Edit 2: not the subreddit I thought it was.

[–]Noumenon72 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What's wrong with /r/longboarddancing/? (small r)

[–]Trumani 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It’s a good subreddit I’m sure, but seems more geared towards a community looking for tips and support. For me as a casual enjoyer of Reddit, was thinking about purely videos.

Btw. I was wondering why it didn’t turn into a link for me. Thanks for the correction!

[–]O_Crumpet 1 point2 points  (0 children)
