    Default The Loaded Challenge Thread: Series 2

    Well dudes and dudettes, The Loaded Challenges are upon us once again, and it's time for a new thread in which to place your thoughts, tips, tricks and complaints!



    This series has promised to be much more difficult than the first, and with a G-turn as the first trick, I'm opting to believe it. How much more difficult will only be revealed with time, but I'm pretty sure it'll take a bit more practice than the last time around.





    Let the games begin!!

    Awesome, and if you can do some slides then you are set for the first couple of the challenges, which should be the hardest.

    I'm at the U-turn stage of the G-turn. I'll have it soon if I practice every day. Then I'll take it to a bigger board. I find nose manuals harder on a skateboard, but the most basic on a skateboard as well. So I will learn on a skateboard then transfer to the dancer. And to the Vanguard eventually I hope, but that board is very tricky.

    yeah i'm feeling more confident about these challenges than i did about the first series! i'll have the g-turn done shortly if i practice at it, and i've got the slide covered for sure. anything after that is gravy.

    i didnt get to participate in the 1st loaded challenge series, but i adored everything i saw. hopefully i can be a part of this one. i've yet to see the vid but just knowing its a g-turn is enuff to know its not gonna be an easy batch of challenges for me....but hey, what's life without a worthy challenge thrown in with whipcream every once and a while?

    i'll be practicing, so kiss my lipps with a smile...best of luck to all!

    well i'm gonna attempt this challenge...

    i didn't do the first one

    but i think if i practice every day on my lunch break i might be able to do it.

    i hope that there aren't any 360 varials or pirouettes... i just don't like those, plus i get super dizzy when i do them

    I'm having lots of trouble with the g-turn. I can't nose manual very well, so it's going to be pretty tricky to pull off.

    Oh man, its not looking up for me, i started a 9-6 job which with traveling time included has my student arse out the house for the better half of a day
    The G-turn is one fly move though, and if i learn any of the tricks it will be this one! Cant wait to see what else is in store though.

    they were using a dervish?

    I'll do it this time around, but I'm praying that there's no oldskool kickflip.

    I can do it while at a standstill. But there is no way I could do it moving yet...
