Sadiq Jaffer says:

Hey Ryan, really need to work on my pole planting. Can you make a tutorial on your skateboard showing some summer training tips. Thanks! 😀

kukaraca says:

Really like your videos, and your attitude and approach in general. Very inspiring, thanks. Keep it up!

Johnathan Buckhouse says:

Heck yeah man!!!

jBusy94 says:

I started learning to skateboard to improve my snowboarding and not lose my skills too! Have fun man! I look forward to more great videos!

MrSpreadem says:

Dude your pretty good. I picked skating up this year for the same reason and I’m not close to you at all

Josh Archer says:

Nice video! Keep up the inspiration! It’s tough getting old, things don’t come as easy anymore but you make it look pretty easy!

gustawke fqd says:

If you want to watch some great vids watch jeff grosso’s loveletters to skateboarding

Trikk says:

Thanks for doing this video man!!

Sebastian Tereszczenko says:

Dude, same thing here. I used to skateboard about 20 years ago and this is second year I’m back skateboarding and also watching braille skateboarding tutorials 😀

Joshua Schaffer says:

Good to see you Ryan!

galognu says:

Ryan….Much like you did in the snow, but probable more important here is a HELMET. I almost took myself out on my flowboard and if it was not for my helmet I’d be typing like disknerhsodmnwhor[md…. Keep up the good work.

Sky Hu says:

Thumb up If you still keep notifications on for Ryan

Ste Selector says:

I’ve just started skateboarding in Apr! Beginners, get all the protectors: ankles, shins, wrists, elbows, knees, butt pad & helmet. If you are a nervous beginner (like I am), helmet is the least of your worry but wrist & elbow pads are must, ankle, shin & butt pads will make your learning less painful. Skateboarding is unforgiving compared to snowboarding imo. But still enjoying it!

tubiak1 says:

No helmet?

Костя Шишкин says:

wow the house is made of stone, people in Russia think houses in the USA are from cardboard))

Wayne McKenzie says:

Looks like a plan.. Tks for the Kool vlog

James Kolesnikovich says:

How wide is your skateboard?

inMotionSLB says:

i just got a new board and havent done any skating for over 15 years… i can barely go straight this will be fun ahahha

Brenton Arms says:

Keep them coming. Get a 8.75” Powell flight deck. You’ll be glad you did

templaboom says:

I skateboarded for a while before I tried snowboarding, it messes with your head for a bit not being able to kick your board out to bail

Geoff Newell says:

Nice one Ryan – now we can watch your stuff all year round. I’m doing longboarding for the same reason. Be great to see you on a longboard.

C S says:

Nice to see you again Ryan!

mlmcclure says:

Try freeline skates. They feel great carving downhill and you can even propel uphill on them.

Justin Bordwell says:

Skating is hard as an adult

Board Archive says:

Killing it Ryan!

Bored Progression says:

SO pumped you’re doing this!! I got back into skating in my 30s after about 8 years off, and wish I never stopped. I’m 35 and still learning new tricks/mastering ones that I never really had as a kid. This made my day Ryan. Sure beats sitting around all summer waiting for snow, haha. I’m posting videos like this all summer till snowboard season kicks in too.

Gérard Philipp says:

Hi, Ryan I would like to see you on a horse doing some rodeo training. 😉

Moondaka89 says:

what do you thing about CARVER C7 Trucks for snowboarders

Taylor Cowley says:

Can’t stand skateboarding but im in love with snowboarding and BMX.. Doesn’t make sense to me

Kyle Axtell says:

Enjoyed the video. Can’t wait for next season. Hope to one day get close to carving as well as you. I’m so used to seeing you with all the gear that I had no clue who I was watching for a sec. Lol

Billy Enforcee says:

Sick. Keep these comin bud!
