Skateboarding, Duh: Nose Slides

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 4.42.21 PMIn these posts we’ll be giving a nod to a few of our favorite aspects of this thing we call skateboarding.  I feel obligated to start with Noseslides.  All though they have been discussed in detail here.  Anyone who skates with me on a regular basis knows that I spend a good deal of that time nosesliding.  Im pretty sure if you added all my time sliding together it would equal a year or two.  So what makes this trick so great?  Let’s start with the obvious.  Its easy.  Most likely it was one of the first slide tricks you learned.  Second,  you can do it on almost any obstacle.  Whether it be a ledge, flatbar, handrail or what have you, a noseslide will probably work on it.  Third,  noseslides work well on tall obstacles.  Can’t ollie high enough to skate that ledge?  Just noseslide it of course!  Noseslides are a great way to get the blood flowing.  You can show up to a spot not warmed up at all and probably still do a noseslide.  I could go on and on about the virtues of noseslides but instead I’ll stop now in hopes that you go out and find out how great they are yourself.  I heard the great Mark Gonzales said that you can learn at least 5 new tricks off one you already know  so by that logic if you learn noseslides you’ll actually learn six tricks. How can you go wrong with that?

Short Film about Inspectrum…

Watch me ramble on about skateboarding and how Inspectrum skateboard co came to exist in this short film.

 

In a side note, 23 news did an article about the new planz park and decided to bootleg a bunch of Inspectrum footy with out permission.  They also apparently don’t allow embeded videos so you’ll have to follow the link.

Last but not least, there will be a Matt part this week.

Some pictures and captions and stuff…

We said we would have Matt’s part done but as things often go we had technical difficulties.  We are hoping to have it finished by this friday.  It will be worth the wait.  Until then enjoy this back tail gif.

Drove by the Planz plaza today.  It’s looking really good.  Can’t wait for it to be finished.  Only one bad photo for now.
