Skip the commercials support star talk on patriarch to listen to every episode, commercial free? I'm real the rest ice in your personal astrophysicist. The startup network is pleased to present to you a new show where the universe and sports- and now I hear your posts, I am so nice I realise and We are the whole stop playing, with sire ready for it.
We got a call and tread the board with mingled with use. Let's see if all the world is indeed a state Then there may well be thrills and their well may be. Some spills are with area absolutely. The eagle has certainly and this show has been long overdue. Ass we know, skateboarding has always been something of a precarious balancing act here and for those who have ever crews the asphalt carved the park. This was for you
baby and for those of us who never have well, it's it's for all of us really. It is- and I mean the latter of that, so the first act belongs to a man who could be a hero straight off. The pages of a DC comic none other than doctors bored himself, a k, a bill, Robert sent a former masters Freestyle champion at a Phd on wheels and we're gonna, bring a touch of six peering clerk, sank to the proceedings, also former professional skateboard or an snowboarder Aditya, no less and a star of Coquet way. For other page, a bold and the beautiful Mr Othello Clark will be with us, the I never got on escaped bored by the time. Skateboarding hit the UK, it's the early eighties and I'm a professional soccer player right, no motorcycles. Daphne no skiing salute every no skateboard,
so I'm off the arm of the cliff here I am into the unknown new embody. Your body was worth something back there in my body. On the other hand, was completely worthless. I threw caution to the wind quite a bit as it kid, and I was you know I was escape Warner. I have to say I was I was escape order. I loved it I lived in the neighborhood where all the kids were discovering skateboarding at the same time, and we had a neighbour with
and the next evolution between flat surface exercises. You know where you learned kit, flip and maybe to an earlier tail flip or will you know, jump occur or something like that. The next thing was somebody said your man. This is due to California mandate, this gate in the pools EL. We can learn how to drop in. Was it, and so a neighbor had never get a kidney shape pool that was three feet on one end and eight feet on the other, and you started off inside the poor and you would just learn how to actually go decided poor and then I'll. Never forget Rodney was the first kid to actually drop in successfully what a hero and thereby was like I'll. Never forget that day, man, it was so cool, but enough about me. What are we bring in our gas? These now other than doctors skateboard himself bill. How are you really get shot
Both have me unsure pressure. First things: first, doktor Skateboard was that just I was gonna, be doctors. Gay bottle was there at least where their options naming. Well, you know what I've I've been escape order for over forty years, I had trouble remembering my name as Bill Robertson. So I started as that skateboard But when I was going after my phd irony, hotel and a friend of mine, I'm gonna get my phd and he said dude. I don't know anybody with a phd, and he was one of my skateboarding friends, and so that's when I started thinking Doktor Skateboard, doctor keyboard. Also allowed me to be a little bit about. I know dichotomy soda, put skateboarding with something energy. Station was a motive as well and to tell you man that is so important, I was just thinking how, if there
Somebody like you when I was a kid and we first skateboarding how much more excited about science. All of us would have been simply because skateboarding is one of the few activities where you can see physics at work like physically the outward physics at play here. You're right I mean when I will. I started skateboarding like you charge you know was it was something, to do and then later on, I completed as a proud. But then I was school science teacher and was trying to get students and they in physics about the stuff didn't care about in, I was doing in the classroom. Until one day I thought you knock down straight forces motion, Newton's laws, motion, simple machines with money the board and I that in and started doing tricks and showing them that six behind it and that's when I really knew I had a way of engaging motivating kids in education through state
and you call it a Jew ten months right at and that I just a wonderful term and then there's another term has been attached to you which just really energized me when I read it action science now yeah, I would learn science mature board, had a chemistry teacher and- and I kid you not white lab coat, bow tie classic until night was your science teacher, ok, he's nice as Mr Neil any war about tie because he used to have a longer time that was once made of acetate any lent over a bunsen burner. Hence he had broken tie from then on enough about my history. Then they caught him. Professor burn victim, ok, but you bring it to life so what's style on a chore board is now animated and real, and some students learn through this tactic, experienced. I don't learn from reading things off of a chop. Body must be
always well to the thing we always and to do with inaction. Science and the approach was to make it be good. Skateboarding first could had to be good skateboarding, a man. You know we wanted it to be something that people who are in sport respected. What was going on beyond that? We try to embed alot of content about the future, We tried to embed alot of content about the physics into mostly. First lie perform and then video has been the big thing we ve been working on now and so You know we, we hope people by the action, but then we the stain it through the science and as shocking. I we're talking about earlier did you know You also have the ability to show people, you know the physics they're doing an breakdown in a what they mastered in terms of the science as well, so a lot of times you a good scape orders, don't think about the physics Dave actually masters, but when you help him to link it that learning those terms and those concepts. Actually, my
help with with tricks and so that motivation and engagement through Skype bringing into their education is something that central to what we ve been trying to do. Ok, you ve got to the worst pupils efforts to sit in front of you. That's why me, sir, but we do this show it's really just stay out of temper rusticated retrospective education drop. Some science on us give us some forces motions balance newtons. Third, whatever you gonna try and make us the deep last summer, great well yeah. What are we narrow that when we start, which is balance because balance is the most important things to master first on a board? So, with respect to balance talk from the physics standpoint sure. So when you write escape board one of the things you want to try to do is you know you want balanced, but you also it's really about your centre of gravity, of keeping your centre of gravity over the middle the board or, if you're, in a manual or a Willie
sure or your kick turn your on the trucks. So this is the center of balance being able shift. Your centre, a balance over your board and centre balance It is also known as centre of gravity orbs enter of mass so trying to keep that centre of your body for the middle or that the twenty aboard, where you're turning the other part within that is you're, always really trying to manage balanced forces unbalanced forces actually, when you're moving, you know, using unbalanced forces so that your car Stanley trying to stay in balance if you will, by keeping your centre of gravity over the board, but you are also worrying the forces to be unbalanced so that you can keep moving. So that's a little bit, the dance you do on your skateboard. In physics terms, though, I think the most important he has to keep that centre of gravity or that centre of ass right over?
but the middle of your board or a pivot point over your trucks. So the doktor professor, I'm not sure how I address. You now if for someone like me, who never wrote skateboard more than one hundreds of a second an Ali, I know the term, but it has got some amazing physics in it and yet and you ve talked about centre of gravity, but your actually playing with the centre of gravity of your own body or not to explain or break that down for us, so so the Ali, which is where you do basically no handed aerial, you go into flight and you you, basically bang the tailor, the other backer your book. On the ground, and then you roll your echoing just power- and this is, and then in a new level at your board and you fly through the air using it, and people who master that trick can don't go over things at great heights or great distance.
The trick that was originated back in the seventies by guy named Alan Girlfriend and was perfected on the flat ground Ganem, Roddy Merlin, but it standard in reporting, It's really as its all about flight. So you're, you know you're tryin, again overcome gravity with left and thrust with overcoming friction, but the other part of that is, you do have to maneuver yourself and keep that centre of gravity right. For the middle of your board. Azure azure moving through this transition thing: you'll notice, like a lot of things that go in flight like that, is that a scape were act, Lee rides parabolic arc, so you'll see escape we're a color rod and are all the way across there are not enough. Are they going straight up or straight down there going in this? Are this parabolic motion and so riders that cover a lotta distance or can get really high and manage the speed? Can either go farther Org
higher with this trick, but it's uh, it's a fundamental trick. That's just like the basics of light proceed very cool man. This segment is flew by. I cannot believe this is like one of the fast This assessment has ever flows out we'll die sea, which is that there is, however, what wheels, but before we go to a break a lot of what you said. Yes, physics, science, absolutely pure, but I sense an awful lot of intuition of every skater that comes into that. Are you able to portray there bring them into the sinking of students or things we try or appealing to escape order. As is the tell them. You know the things they are doing. Their skateboarding. The things they mastered are really high level thinking their problem. Sobbing there arising things there, synthesizing information there are evaluating and then there being creative as a result of it, which is by definition higher our thinking
so we try to make a link from that to something they mastered and say you know the things you do with your skateboard that have caused you to be really good practicing. Being tenacious being persistent setting goals being created. Those are the same things you can apply to your education and a lot of times. It's just trying to tell people you know if you're really good at something, and you know what it's like to master something, whether it's a skateboard, a guitar, a second language. You can probably there's something else, and so for me, a lot of times is trying to just get them to link those habits, a body, mind and spirit, to something they love to do and then integrated into their education? You know that it's true for me I mean I was not necessarily the greatest student when I started skateboarding bus importing gave me experiences that took me a lot of different places, and then people urged me and said: hey you're good, escaped boring. You could probably do pretty good in school, and I made that commitment
myself and really that's what I'm trying to do is reach out to people who might be marginalized because their into a sport, but inherently. There are the kinds of students you want who succeed, because they are thinkers. Nice, it's fantastic right! We're gonna, take a commercial break at. I don't want to lose the flu that we ve got with the doktor skateboard, so we will come back. Thank you to build Robertson, we're gonna! Take that break. The science we ve looked at the technology is on its way to go hello secret. For you, When I consider singing all of the ads on this show there
Just one way to get out of hearing there go to patriarch arms last startled and support. Where does at the five dollar level or higher to listen? The star talk ad free, you can download all current episodes into your favorite podcast player and never we're here another commercial on star talk ever again. You will definitely not have to hear me saying if you support us at Patria Dark coms. Last our talk, radio, I mean I'm just thinking I mean just saying:
back, I'm very o Reilly jeopardize. This is playing with science as they are exploring the signs behind skateboarding and joining us via video call is the man we had in part one joke skateboard himself bilbil. I just need a really deep, echoing voice standby, just don't have it. We ve covered the physics in top part one. Now, let's take a look good look at the Tec, innovation and evolution of the board ass. Well, let me tell you so boards up comes such a long way, dot skateboard networks.
Before the show about you know. He and I are from a pretty much the same error where countries that yeah yeah well laid eighties nineties, where you know I was telling you that I go so far back that I was skating before there were precision, bearings sir, who just got this prayer new polyurethane wheels, but the first polyurethane wheels it came out. They had regular bearing a new polyurethane wheels, but the first polyurethane wheels it came out. They had regular bearings inside of they weren't sealed, so they weren't seal and then you will pop up there because you would like to a trick and what lay, unlike slam down on the concrete and then you're we'll didn't work. I wonder what just an you pick gosh. What does just happen? What the web and You would look inside, you will and you would see, there's a bear. You re so after bearing get doktor Skype
hold on a minute now, just how much of a difference did this evolution in bearings make put the polyurethane wheels. We know we know a little bit and we'll revisit that, because I don't want to talk to you about transference of energy. Put bearings just lead us through parents. If you would please right so that what what Chuck is talking about with the various popping out you know was something that was commented. It was another way that you know you I just slam so gravity would overtake you no matter what kind of we'll you're writing the precision bearing or the you know that that was the wheel was a big deal because it not only allowed for those the bearings to stop coming out, but it also allowed you to baby progress and push a lot harder work. Just thinking about, oh well, you know, I can't depend on my wheels. The thing is that the bearings we're in case so they had. You know they have lubricant? In there they lasted a lot longer aids. The dirt kept out of there
those are some of the other things that really impeded. Well, going on that end and then they started to make different grades of bearing. So you had different it's a bearings it should be all the way you know from grade like one through southern. They got you know, and then they also made them like Swiss bear so just fine tune Watch or something like that, you had different versions of bearing and so, if you really want to go fast, you used he'll, bearings and, and that's been a big progress and swore absolute and I'll. Never forget man. I forget the kid he had visa. They were there. He was that these are german precision bearing all and they re like this. Do the German. So you know they're good
all right. We touched other the polyurethane construction of the weight and that that obviously changed everything for skateboarding, but in there you ve got degrees of softness yeah and from there you can actually do form the wheel slightly so's. You can get an extra pop with the energy. Is that correct? Well, so, within your thing, wheels there is hardly a scale that basically called barometer NED, Sir, and it typically exe. And from maybe in the seventies, up to a hundred plaza, really hard wheels, but you you say Anna escape part where you want to go. Factors low friction. On that and then, as you moved down the scales, ninety eighty does become softer wheels, so their rip ear, so they they hold onto the the ground a lot more. So the friction, if you will that that that part is increased are. You tend to use softer wheels on slippery surface is or if you're
I am very uneven. Surfaces soak precedence you would use big saw. We all, maybe when you're using a cruiser bore. You're, writing Arap app your riding on the boardwalk, and then you want to use really hard wheels when you really want to go fast and a park, and so so that print IRAN, the different sizes of wheels, the context faces on it, and the hardness of the wheel deftly contribute to that, and so it's I think, is less. The forming the wheel as it is about in managing the speed or the friction. If you will based on the the hardness or the softness, and one or two things that happen like right after I started. You know we're after I got out of this, that the look look at me like I'm, a professional border, water right after I retired you know when I retired from skateboarding you now got a job and joined the rat race, but you saw wheels get like super tiny,
You got this tiny little hard wheels, and so the diameter of the will then become changes, their whole aspect and those wheels word like the wheels, the guys that would do, unlike supercool tricks thereon using on his tiny wheels so wide that development happen or what is the purpose of the tiny wheel is what I'm really asking. So the guys can do these great tricks if it had whether the tiny wheels one of the primary things were, so you have a smaller. Fact area smaller, we'll its lighter? So in some ways what you're doing is your decreasing that the contact edge of the wheel, which are also decreasing the weight of the board slightly, so I think different. Smaller we Those were were an advert for people who are really trying to do progressions a flip tricks where there really flipping things I doing
as well. There is also the the the other part where people looked at them: decorously small wheels as just a marketing ploy fora for companies to sell more wheels, if you will, but I think, what you ve seen now is the advent of morbid seventies concept, where you have different wheels of different sizes used for different things. For instance when I'm writing flat ground. I use a smaller we'll about a fifty two millimeter, we'll with a thirty eight Miller it are contact patch and they went on the park. I use a sixty millimeter wheel. Which is much taller. We'll, like entail my speed and keep my contact edge. Allow more so it depends on what you wanna do. You know you can vary or we'll as super cool. So let's talk is where a company will run out of time against dislike the so called
It is our to give ground you away. I just gotta think dominoes. Ok, anyway, just go back to the future. So let's talk about two things and I want you to. So when you drop in and a half pipe ok, I want you to talk about the physics of will you drop in it's like you, allow gravity it. Take you down get to the bottom of the pipes and then you kind of like? I can't explain it because you know, but you kind of like push down on your bored. So you know what I mean like you drop your butt and
put down in that you take that route you drew down in and then you expect right and they you kind of like come up off of it on the outside, and that becomes like a pump to get you back up to the other side right ass, the man. Ok. So I want you to talk about that and then talk about the difference between that, because you're on a surface and a back to the Future Hover board and what, with the difference, escape can be between those two things on the surface. The way I just explained and on a hover board, if you are on a electromagnetic waves, the worst thing child could have ever said to guide our brand. That's an excellent question: I think I'll take a shot at it. You know what when you dropping in a half pipe or some kind of dino, steep angle, I can a pool or something like that
things that you really dealing with. First off is this idea: potential energy and kinetic energy, and so as you're at the top in your stationary, have all this potential energy use I've been you're on the face of the wall and that that is also called mechanical energy. Those too, some together, kinetic and potential, and so you're going down, though the wall, Europe's at some diminishing potential energy and increasing kinetic energy when you hit the bottom at the transition you're completely two kinetic energy, so your energy is at its highest when you're there and as chocolate mentioning that's a point where you're gonna use your legs to color managed to absorb that a little and then you're gonna innocence, throw yourself forward to propel that energy through the transition. So it's gonna like pumping the transition, then, as you come up to the other, so you get speed there. Then, as you come up to the other side of the wall, you do almost the opposite. You're going to you're gonna move backwards. If you,
you're gonna along gate yourself, you're gonna, go from full kinetic energy, and then Crease, your potential energy, as you move up to the tops of being how to manage that and stay in the the bowl is a is a big deal and that's another reason why you know you use the trucks to grind or you go through the air. You know by your border Ali to to keep them. Dad momentum or that energy moving so you're really moving between areas of Europe, potential energy to full, kinetic energy and then managing the mechanical energy and between so now oh Lexus, I'm not familiar with this doc. You are familiar with an ok, so lax created a true electromagnetic overboard. Gay and leather suits leather seats, but but the cool thing about Is you know you had to stay on their little track, that they create it?
let's say you have a whole half pint that allows you to do that. What would this thing look like? What we skateboarding do an end is that the future skateboarding Well, you know to me things are watch that that video is well what I was watching: the riders trying to learn how to do it. You just saw them slamming on a ramp over and over and over, because first stop The way you move on that, with with less so much less resistance. Requires so much less effort if you will- and so we saw a writer is really good is usually used to like you are pushing really hard and a grinding on the coping, and then this takes all that resistance. All that friction out of it. So you They have to learn how to ride in a much more Dental wax to me units like moving from skateboard the snowboarding. You know when you, you know I started snowboarding peoples that are you're gonna be good at it, because your escape order. You know when I got
on the hill? It was very different because you had it, you were just slip in and slide in the whole time. You know when I got the air I could do skateboarding grabs and they want a landed on the ground? It was like you know nothing I had ever done before. It was very different because your managing this increased speed and lack of friction, and so how would that look? the future. You know I think people could have fun with it. You know it be almost to me like a wave park for surfing, but dont know that were displace the idea that dinner and certainly the accessibility of the sport, the way it As you know, living here, I see hundreds of kids out riding their skateboards and skateboards, or Portable. I would imagine us overboard. Gonna be a little cost prohibitive, but you know, maybe in the future we'll be something for everybody, but I think it would be ultimately easier than it is Kay boarding with your thing wheels, and I think people who ride your thing wheels like being in contact with them
concrete with their wheels and managing that tension. If you will all the time. What you just said, I suffer an awesome said way. Our next said move because we actually You're gonna be talking to a state border turn. Snowboarder turned actor sell out. So very out of the sky quotas at all. This is all about the big g. It's all about the big g baby jeez. What gives the real kicker escape, or as some science you go, I will take that break. We cannot go without saying so many things choose to doktor escape out a k, a billion rather than the analyze. It just unlocked the signs, but he's given us the Tec behind skateboarding. We are so privilege to have had them. Thank you so much You really have shown us that when you play with fire you get burned when you play with science, you get learned absolute. I thank you all very much. You are welcome right with those words of wisdom.
Take that brake on the other side, misstep Othello Club, Dj Access, snowboarder abandoned and the beautiful has just chuck an ice around in a way the rebels in the world with no place to go back on very rightly, and I'm surprised at this is playing with science. Today we have been talking for science and technology behind skateboards, as they were going to take it to a different direction and up a notch joining us to invest. The pros perspective is a fellow claw. Yes, that's author loaf
The boat in the beautiful athlete turn tv soap operas star. What hasn't this man done hasn't been on all show yet, but we're about to rectify that. I now ask fellow was habitant great. Are you guys we could really happening? Have you show me how? How do you find yourself gravitating towards skateboarding escape morning? Came first me. First and foremost, my background comes from reporting? I grew up in Virginia beaching, nor purging area and when we moved this neighborhood arm, you know parents. I wish I get your neighborhood that they really can afford it we want you to have a better life. The stories with me. So we moved this little name. Everybody out front where these little white skateboarding and I didn't have any friends. I would just sit out there and after that, their filing a couple days do comes up to me as I would like skateboard just try it and making it.
Having fun and the kids are starting to like me. So I knew that I had to be really good at skateboarding if I was going to get along in this neighborhood. So then from there. I decided to start backs and every day all day, and I did good, am am. I knew that I had to be able to get you to be able to afford all escape words and other equipment he saw motivated. I bet you, I knew my family wasn't gonna, buy me another skateboard, every two or three weeks that we needed so that I need it. So I knew the only way to get a proper use to become a sponsor escape order, so I practised in the rain day and night every day after school to get dark like that's all. I did so that labelling I picked up Everything's read out a couple stances on. Ok, let's take you back a couple of steps young man who fell in love with skateboarding. He then got very competitive and wanted to buy. You know get himself boards couldn't afford to bite himself, how much of the science involved in Skype
Indeed, you have consciously in your mind and then bring to the development of new tricks. Well, you know that, It's not development of new tricks you're on the next level, when you start developing your own tricks where it is. Stirring the tricks that are already out there in the tricks that that are old one, and by chance of the landing the trick everytime. You work on those tricks and new master to the point where you can get a monk man, it's not the inner. It's not about, if you can do the trick or not, because everybody can do the trick, whether or not you can do when the time comes and wait were you cognisant of any the physics involved and we just had a doctor bill Robinson Doktor, Scape, we're doin.
He was. We were talking about the physics of many of the moves in skateboarding. Were you aware of any other physics in science involved in what you were doing? Well, I mean that category that back Let me think about this. I was aware of it in a sense that what the board has do, because when I learned tricks, what I do is I I sit down. I stared at how it works and what it takes to make it happen so, for instance, flip. You know, I knew that you had to Ali verse and get to your heart. This point and then I know you had to take your foot and then flip it really quick and then and then he laughed so I will watch that for a while and then I would study where it was too at the proper time anything flip the boards and landed, or I will so once a year. That down. Then you understood the next thing: is they get your putting right so
now. I know how to put the board now. I need to figure out. Where might be we're gonna be when I landed on the board. The borders come down as that land away. So then, the next step in the learning a trick was slipping done, now landing and even at the board didn't lan making you the man in the way that when the board filing does gets you, you were ready for it. That was the next step and then you together and that's how I always learn. Tricks was instead points of time, and that is the application of science Lily. That is critical, linking rate to trial and error and the until you get the desired outcome, so yeah a lot of trial and error. Alot allotted to marry, you know, you're not was escape, were
the Rayner or water. But that didn't stop me. I just changed my wheels and I was out there nonstop in the rain trial and error learning new tricks every day you still gabled everyday. You still get the time, but still in your blood, you still have to have that that piece of youth. Bored my whole life skateboarding them I am, That's what I'm right, I'm across the street from Escape Parkside stare at waddled it! Oh god, it's see that that's where I'm a viking staring at it. I am personally I enjoy. I enjoy watching. Kids were new tricks. I remember when I was learning that trick and I think to myself. Ok he's about to do it. Three more tricks, three more tries is not brain and then he lands. The end is almost as if I learned to do it again by watching so The imo is around skateboard. Do you still get the same buzz
now that you had when you sat on the porch watching the other kids and then getting involved all you know the great question I do, but it's from Lake unbelievable, It's that are coming of age these days. You know I'll be scrolling instagram or something not on my feet, all skateboards and then I'll see a trick. That just makes me go wound put my phone down like oh, my gosh gave warning is on the next level right now they ve been evaluated by the really. So what would I skateboarding back in the day man. So you know it went from flat, surface tricks like you know you just how'd. You know kit flab, Ali, you know, and then we had a neighbour that a pool, so we start a drop in annual. I didn't. I will be very honest for this this closer, I did skate the pool. I stated the ball. I scared of bull and never dropped in I'm gonna be honest. I'm gonna be honest, because I want to sit here and be opposing ok, but an hour
But then you look and you see the progression from that back when I was a kid so like the Ex Games today, where do you think this is going man I mean it's and what you just said about you look at Instagram now, where do you see this go on its really insane? Well You know, I got another good question. I don't. I can't tell you where it's going, because I just can't imagine which is silly for me to say, but I just can't imagine the tricks getting more than they already are. You know I see some of the craziest tricks straight blow my mind every day I go well what else? I think that what were the next progression in this what is the have every trick? That's being done now done bigger right turn at a different level. Seized the happy behind you. The next check will be done at a ten foot, tat pipe,
words, you know floating on a barge; they they try to take things in scale, to artistic level. Nowadays, you know what I mean I got Joseph, skater. Everybody should like a cold day, one song. Ok, day long song is probably is probably take he's also skater, but he had to redefine rebuild himself to continue to remain calm and some now videos and all the staff that he does. He adds all the hottest tricks in with a little like magic, like your whole Ali attraction, and then do a spin on the lid and then down sealed. Tell or he's taken into Vegas it s very clear, exactly what I'm saying is that the only way to say that's, a great way to say hello?
