the problem is I don't know much about it.
what kind should I get?
should I just worry about how it looks for now and learn as I go if I stay into it?
please help.
thanks.

yeh, I read that different wheel sizes and stuff are better for certain things.
Since I'm just starting I don't think I'll be able to do much yet, so...
what kind/size of wheels and what trucks should I get?
#7
ok well dont get a massive chunkey skateboard and dont go buying like a £10 one like i did, they are the most useless things on the planet, a local skateshop will be able to help you proabably better than i can, and the style of the board (like artwork) isnt crucial but it looks nice so go for the quality and not the look of it
#8
i would say...
zero deck (ive yet to break a zero in my experience)
phantom trucks (slightly expensive)
"reds" bearings (high quality only $15)
and probably some spitfire wheels.


thats what id go with if i were you. thats gonna probably cost 100-130 bucks though...

Try 50-55mm skateboard wheels, with a hardness of 97-100a if you are going to skate street and then for trucks
Low trucks make flip tricks easier and add some stability, but with lower trucks you will want smaller wheels. High trucks allow you to use larger wheels, which will help when skateboarding at higher speeds or long distances.
and then bearings are really important and you should get a good set of those

'd say go blank deck..but not crappy..like mini logo or something. 7.5-7.6 mostly street, 7.75 all around, 8 and up mostly vert. you want smaller if you're doing street

trucks..depends. what do you want to do? street, vert, pool, transition? mids are good for most, highs for vert, and lows for street.

wheels..go with what you want...generally get smaller wheels lik 50-54mm for street..thats all i know.

BEARINGS...i'd say go definitely with Bones REDS..cheap and awesome.

riser pads...i'd say if your wheels are like 50's or 52's then no. unless you really dont want to break your board.

yea other than that go for it!

ok, I'm looking at a custom complete thing on CCS
If the board is 7.5" do the trucks have to be 7.5"
or can they be 7.75"?
I'm thinking the same, but wanted to make sure!

you want it to be 1/4" within your deck.

thanks.
your avatar makes me lol!

and with mid trucks, would 52 or 54 mm wheels be better?
