Hey guys,

my friend is taking up skating again and asked me to do it with him.

now to those who know me, i'm no lil' guy, im tall, fat and i have no sense of balance...


..in short im going to kill myself.

but you like this board? http://www.rollersnakes.co.uk/product.php?productid=32260

i might put on some 56mm wheels on it though.

I'ld say if you're starting out, don't waste your money on a cool funky looking board.
Just get a good, strong, well balanced plain board. Cuz you'll anyway end up scraping all the paint off...


And i need to myself get back into skateboarding... actually never really properly got into in. Just never had enough time for skateboarding...
And i've got a pretty good balance...

So you hang up a skateboard on your wall even though you don't skate? What, do you just want people to think you skate? Is it cool?

I bought this board off ebay, but the guy sent me the wrong one. I sent it back and I'm waiting to get the one I ordered



tell me that thing's not epic

No, people don't come to my house

I have no where to put it so I just hang it on the wall, where I can see the art.

I did like those Fibre-light boards though

I think thats what they were called. And just seeing that Alien Workshop deck makes me want to skate again.

i skate

you should try out some of your friends boards and see what you like

blind are my favourite but the tail always seems to wear down quite fast =S??

if you skate street you will prob want a narrower board

if you skate vert you might want a broader? (if thats a word) board

smaller wheels seem flip easier but they don't go over stones as easy


hope that is of some help to you =]

Well thats why im going for that Icon board, its 8.0 and im gonna replace the wheels with 56mm or 60mm so its more stable for a beginner

i'm just starting too after my friends roped me into it. we are getting taught by a friend who's good. your board looks cool, but its (and your) rideability is the most important thing. I'm getting one of those Voltage boards. cheap and quite dashing. i have no sense of balance too (afraid of heights), but after 2 days skating on my friends board, my sense of balance has improved greatly.
It's gonna be a blue day

I used to like 'boarding a a method of actual transport around town and stuff a while back, but now it's somewhat out of fashion. I'd just look a prick unless i was 1337 pro at tr1x.

Same. I used it more for transport than tricks. Although I did enjoy just dropping in a rolling on the quarter pipes. I got really good at controlling my board at high speeds. Considering how loose my trucks were, i'm surprised I didn't have that many injuries.

right now i got sum kareem campbell deck (not sure what brand cuz i got it for xmas infifth grade),
grind king trucks, apec 5 bearings and bone red wheels right now
<---i still have teh deck but i jus started skating again last time i truly skated was in sixth grade...

if you have a high budget customize it with a plan B or element deck,
destructo trucks(extremely light), spit fire wheels (extremely smooth)
and dont use 56mm wheels way way too big go with 53's or 52's, get urself sum mob griptape too... good stuff
for those about to rock... we salute you
