I stand by what I said. SCBS is NOT the place to learn how to stop. People who told you it's for all skill levels were wrong. You need to be able to handle yourself. If you can't control your speed or pull an emergency stop, then riding fast with a group in the city at night is potentially going to get you badly hurt or even killed. I think people are forgetting that bombsquad is actually pretty dangerous (or has it got really lame and safe since my injury?).
I taught myself shutdown slides on my own well before I turned up and I still got smashed into carpark walls repeatedly for weeks.
Go to youtube, watch some Kyle Chin or Colton slide tutorials and then practice on a quiet hill until you can stop in a hurry. That's what I did.
Remy, it is. but as Bugs said. Know how yto either shutdown slide or footbrake........if you can do either of these ok, come and you will learn how to do it better as you get taught or watch and learn....also, alot of people come and then realise that we push everywhere, make sure you can keep up the pace :P
Easiest way to learn is to do......if you have a small hill, go slide it, practice sliding to a stop, or get your footbraking technique down-pat. Or, find someone who lives near you and hit them up for a skate...and learn, ask questions.....
You don't need to slide to go to Bomb Squad, but if you can't slide you do need to be able to footbrake.
Wrist guards will do if footbraking, but gloves are still better.
Gloves are 100% necessary, because you're going to need them for everything. If you cant slide yet, you'll need them to protect your hands when you fall.
Minimum gear is Helmet and Gloves. Secondary gear is a skateboard.
