What is a skating vert?
there are three types of skateboarding:
1)street(grinds on the street railings and stuff)
2)flatland freestyle(check out Rodney mullen japan 1984 on youtube)
3) Vert (skating on a skatepark on quarterpipes halfpipes loops etc.)
depends on your skating ability if you are really good at vert skating then you may want them vertical ( if u can afford it and get the wood ) But if you are planning on learning on this you may want to think about a mini ramp which are really good to learn on and in the future you can rebuild on it so you can make it bigger
Vert skateboarding was much more popular in the early through late eighties until street skateboarding began to rise in popularity in the early nineties. Skateboarding is much more popular presently than it was in the legacy years of the seventies and eighties. Both vert and street skating have a healthy following to date.
