    Emass you got me confused, I have a tough time ollieing the carver. Maybe its just me though, you seem to be doing it okay? I can get the front up easy, it's just getting the back wheels to pop, they never go for me. So many curbs to hop too..

    dude bros, are we talking about skating or carver(ing). Skateboard in pools is cool, riding a carver is not. I think the carver is your problemo mang. If I made a trip to go skate a pool with some dudes, and showed up with a carver I would be told to go fondle a speed bump.

    Hayduke, nearest pool is 45 mins. Boston believe it or not has no skateparks in the city. When I cant get to a pool I find a bank somewhere and throw turns on my carver. Not ideal but I can generate speed fast through turns with these trucks.

    I haven’t tried it on a pool but definitely in favor a light board over the extra weight of the carver. Plus the grippy wheels would be a nightmare, it would be fun for a bit before you did something stupid and hurt yourself. But yeah I’d rather be riding a regular board.

    Bruh, back foot on the blade/edge of the tail kick and not on the heelside of the tail only but instead across the whole width of the tail. The elevation of the board from the taller wheels + any risers (I use none or 1) + the tail kick equates to a long range of motion on the downward portion of your pop. Lead foot in middle of deck with toes halfway up the width. If you are lacking pop then you need to 1) bend at knees, not hips, so knees go way out over toes and to parallel seating position or below; 2) not raising rear knee immediately after the push off portion of the pop as to not project the rear end of board upwards only to hit your shoe sole which should be high in the air by now. To me, there are 3 key parts of the Ollie after the deep squat at the knees and I have all 3 down solid from working on them in the gym on stability discs, it's just a matter of linking them together with proper timing. Carver completes are heavy as sin but bro, a good pop will make that board anti-gravitational so fast your head would spin if you knew the Erock formula. btw...WHERE THE EFF IS EROCK?!?!?!

    Really? Bro, take it from a dude who makes it his job to knock things before trying them and loving them - don't knock it til you try it. Have you ripped a Carver in a pool before? If not, try it before commenting. I've done so up to 10' and it's both doable and uniquely enjoyable to ripping trad decks and hardware in pools. Any brah who tries to tell me to defile a speed bump because I brought my Carver to the park just may end up tasting that speed bump. I do it all the time and to different bowls/parks/pools and no one's had the ballz to talk like that to my face and if they're saying **** on their own then good for them as they're already dying a slow death of beta insecurity. Most bros at the parks love the Carver and want to know all about it but are shy to try it out themselves. That's ok as we each have our own drug.

    Bro the world is our canvas, especially a metropolitan environment. Preferably a west coast metro area due to the immaculate pave, moderate declines, and far above average split tail. Lightweight board is great and that's why I've got CX trucks on a trad deck but honestly the heavier deck gives you the full surf feel because even surfing a chip you can feel the length and volume of the board under your feet. A popsicle stick is light as air and hard to translate as well to surf. Grippy wheels are no issue if you are flowing properly and keeping up speed and proper technique. It takes a bit of feeling it out not to get stuck on the wall (I've done it at 8' up) but once you get past that it just doesn't happen anymore and you're sliding even 78a wheels nice on the crete.

    Easy there emass, just trying to help a dude find some friends to skate with. Must be my old school ways shining through. Thinking about the crews in my past that I have skated with, alternative crafts were always just to have some fun on and not to be taken seriously.

    I am not knocking your infatuation with your carver, its good to be stoked on something.

    I miss how skateboarding used to be, and I also miss how when you ask people if they skate they say yes, I ride a longboard.
