Those private property signs are a real bummer
lol I ride there all the time. There's a small deck and a pier for docking boats behind the building.
@Lia Sources available to web clients like browsers aren't usually the same as those that actually govern the backend. It would be very bad practice if they were! However, if the master does share the same code, and someone fussed with the stack on the backend, then maybe there were some cross compiling errors that could show themselves in a client resource later, but I'm just speculating. Debug is a drag.
My best guess is that the apps lightly authenticate with a web api, then relay data which is in turn cached for leaderboard ETL later. Those scripts are maintained actively so it's probably just a bad fork or something that inadvertently went to production. Hopefully they can retally after they find the bugs.
My cat walked across my keyboard once and erased half a day's work. Could have been dire if I were afk at the time. I may have never noticed it. Could take hours just to identify the error at that point, let alone address it.
@LidPhones Slip ons, t-shirt and plaid pajama pants mostly lol. Super comfy and very breezy. Hoodie if it's not too hot. I get looks.
same here for me, almost exactly. i think i rode my first 10-20 miles on grass, though. after my first 3 days or so on the grass, i got brave and decided to ride home. once i hit the street, i was amazed at how smooth and easy it was. i think riding on uneven grassy surfaces helps you condition your stabilizer muscles faster, and get used to responding to unexpected bumps and knocks one way or the other.
Yup same here. I agree. Starting on a lawn has benefits. Riding pavement has a certain 'squirreliness' to it that can be challenging. I came from almost exclusively a snowboarding background. It helped a lot since almost all of those skills translate nicely to Onewheeling. I regularly catch myself 'pumping' my onewheel while riding dips on flat terrain, and it's purely by habit.
One notion that does NOT translate is the concept and practice of 'edge control'. On a snowboard, you're always controlling your edges in some fashion. Onewheel's ride 'flat' by comparison (cuz it's a wheel). If your curling your toes with a death grip trying to hold an edge while on a onewheel, you're probably doing it wrong.
@Lia lol... Joints are troublesome. Be sure to stretch from now on. Speaking from similar experience.
Maybe patent leather dress shoes aren't the best footwear for off-road board sports hmm? Unless of course you designed them yourself in your evil tech lair.
Was riding up the street yesterday and passed by a group of landscapers doing their thing. It's a bit of a long incline, so I was just casually riding up the hill gingerly. As I'm riding by them, I hear what sounds like the loud rumbling of a commercial lawnmower directly on my tail. I look off to my side and there is one of them riding along side of me with a big smile on his face. I also grinned widely as I suddenly found myself sharing my very first group ride with some dude on a lawnmower. It was fun! Funniest part was when I did a bit of a pirouette/hard toe side turn in the driveway of the home they were working, and he responded with his own 360. We laughed.
Boy, oh boy, do I wish I had actually taken the time to learn how to use this thing.
Count on just slowly putting around for the first 40 miles at a minimum. Short progress can be very misleading.
I started out on the front lawn just doing lazy laps and figure eights. Your feet are basically useless blocks of meat for the first ten miles imo. At first, you may have very little stamina and the sensations are meaningless, which is a recipe for falling. After a while you become way more comfortable just standing on the board let alone interpreting the sensations your feet are telling you. You may even be able to carve on the flats ok, but an uneven road surface will substantially alter the sensation, and there is a surprising amount of that type of situational experience to acquire while riding these things.
Hard heel-side turns require a degree of trust in the board as well as a strong sense of balance (you're basically performing your own trust fall). I was legit intimidated by it for the first 20 miles and I'm a well-seasoned snowboarder. A complete novice would be smart to just take it REALLY slow. Wear all the gear. Never stop wearing a helmet imo.
After you master the lawn, driveway or parking lot, then try a road or sidewalk. Traversing inclines can be kinda trippy. Just my two cents on the subject.
