Yeah, now you're gonna die wearing that stupid little hat. How does it feel?

make sure you're not riding with spacers/risers. Like lethal.7 i'd say get a smaller wheel size - can't beat rictas - and have a decent set of trucks.

My wheels are so old they're now about 47mm, and I don't use risers, I think its really comfortable, and my deck is to.
If you didn't like the deck then why did you buy it in the first place?!!!
Your wheels might feel to soft or hard or something, but it depends how you skate, I personally stick to ledges, stairs and tech stuff...so I dunno how you need/want it.

MONSTA EDIT: What do you skate?
#11
maybe some ricter slims, or some kind of smaller wheel. and some low trucks. and yes loose any risers you have.
#12
take off the risers if you have em, and get lower trucks (like thunder lows... those are godly)

Well, I've always known elements to have a weird shape, so that could be your problem, though you should just get used to it. Every new board I get it takes a good couple weeks before I fully adjust to it, then it feels fine, but then when that one snaps, I have to do the whole thing over again. (that is if I don't get the same deck)
#16
yea. well i bought it a while ago. it was my first good deck so i didnt know what i was doin
and i skate street. like ledges and all
#17
element blows donkey dink in my opinion. but ya man its just cuz other peoples boards are generally already broken in and ready to ride, trucks take forever to get the way you like 'em and the deck generally has to start goin to **** before its really good to ride. like this habitat i have it felt like a god damn snowskate for the first couple days then finally you get used to it. the trucks are especially annoying to break in i like buying peoples used trucks cuz they are ****ing perfect usually.
