Anonymous asked: BackToSchoolGiftCards(.)com = Free Pizza. Fuck yeah.
Come off anon and send me this very same ask, or any other ask for that matter, and we’ll see. Until then you’re a spammer who is very rude for making me want pizza when it’s too late to have any. Shame on you.
fated---to---pretend asked: hi lol kind of random, but ive been considering longboarding for a while, but when it comes down to getting a board im still unsure :/ thinking of buying a $200 board.. is it rly worth it??
Not random at all, I don’t mind :)
Here’s the thing: Longboarding is like running. There’s a ton of different ways to do it, there’s a few different kinds of people that do it, and despite some common misconceptions, it does in fact take a little bit of skill. Along with that, similar to running is the fact that I firmly believe that if you start out right, and you give yourself a while to get it right, you will enjoy it. I guarantee it.
Yes, $200 is a lot of money. And yes, there are some cheaper boards out there (check out daddiesboardshop.com, they have great boards at low prices and I’m a diehard order-from-there person), but the important thing isn’t the money. Get a good board that you like, and it’s totally worth it. So yes, I think you should do it. :)
Sorry for the crazylong answer, but…
Go longboard! :D
rubbershoesouls asked: What is the best kind of longboard to get? I'm really curious
First off, love the name. Elf is amazing.
Thirdly — no, second, there are soooo many different styles of boarding out there. Do you want to just cruise around town, or are you looking to do tricks? Or maybe you want to speed down hills? These are all things you need to take into consideration when you think about buying a longboard.
And C, even when you decide what kind of style you want, it’s still hard to say what’s the ‘best’ board, cos there’s a bazzillion options out there. It’s more about a rider’s preference rather than what’s really the greatest board. I prefer Sector 9 overall because I’m all about cruising around town, SoCal style. But I know of loads of people who says Landyachtz or Gravity beat Sector 9 any day.
Honestly, I just did a terrible job answering that question, but I tried, I swear. It’s been a while since I’ve answered a longboarding question, so I hoped this wasn’t absolutely awful!
Guess who just won a Hamboards shirt?
This kid right here! I entered the contest and won. And I am so so happy! Can’t wait to get out there and rep me some Hams! I feel like I could do a better job of getting the Hamborgs some business if I actually owned a Hamboard, but…. You know, whatever. No hard feels. *cough*
I shoulda won *cough* ;p
But in all sincerity, gratz to Danielle Meier, the first place winner (who won a free bamboo Hamboard), and gratz, too, to all the people who won t shirts!
Hamboards rule guys, go check them out if you haven’t already.
