    Default secondhand skateboard problem?

    heya,

    newbie here, on both forum and skateboards. not sure if i got a dud or if this is normal, was trying out my secondhand skateboard in an empty carpark (concrete floor) but it got to a grinding halt cuz it hit a piece of twig (1 inch roughly).

    i enjoy kissing concrete on all fours as much as the next person, but is this normal ...?

    ta, john

    yes, skateboards get caught on pretty much fucking everything like stones, pebbles, rocks and any other small objects. best thing to do is either look out for them or get bigger wheels.

    Is the twig 1 inch long or 1 inch in diameter?

    1 inch long. i actually felt as if something got stuck and it scraped hard against the concrete floor, grinding it to a sudden halt. i could see the marks it left.

    thing is i wasn't even going that fast ... and if i were, how r u supposed to spot something so small which blends in with the ground anyway

    You go fast so small twigs don't stop you.
