Hey everyone, I just had a quick question. Today I ordered a build-your-own skateboard from CCS online, to replace my old one. Basically I got a huge discount for using all CCS brand parts. (I could have upgraded to Independent trucks for $5 and in retrospect it was a dumb move not to. My reasoning was that I could just transfer the Indies from my old deck.)

I heard some people think it's a "poser" move to have an all-CCS skateboard. Undoubtedly, I'm a newb and I can see how it's a noob move, but does it really make me a poser? Even if I actually ride, as opposed to me just buying one just to literally be a poser?

EDIT: Please tell me where is a good place to get blank (read: cheap) decks. THanks!

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

Dude let me tell you how serious being a poser in the skate boarding world is. It's so serious. Like you can seriously get your stuff messed up. Dude, if you even think about doing it brah, oh man you'll get so thrashed it's not even funny. CCS man. Dude you're so going to get your ass thumped. Dang man. Stay away. Police line: Do not cross status. Bunny hop, ollie, sponsorships, tech deck, kick flip. For real dog.

If people heckle you for that, smash their faces with your board. They deserve it for being douchebags.

WTF?!?!?!?!

I tried skating once. I had this ultra poser board that I didn't know was, uhh, "poserish", when I got it.

I then moved to guitar. Alot cheaper.
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

I could have done that, but you see CCS has a deal where you if you buy a CCS deck, you get CCS trucks/wheel/hardware for free. So there was no extra cost.

No one that is actually good at skating uses name brand decks unless... a.) they get hooked up
or b.) they're rich


I never buy any other decks besides blanks. However, I cannot scrimp on trucks, wheels, or bearings. I go for Venture low's for my trucks, Ricta - Autobahn- or Bones wheels, and Bones swiss bearings. It's worth it to put out the cash for these parts because they will last longer then the deck, and they affect the overall performance of your board more then the deck does.

Hmmm, sounds like I should have got a blank deck. Where do you get yours?

o then ya ccs decks are cheaper so its worth it and ccs is very reputable and pros that skate for them have used their decks before not often but has happened
what i consider a poser is people like my brother who has a ccs hoodie but cant even balence on a board skating is about liking it not if your good thoose people hating on those who cant pop ollies you were there some time its just may take others longer instead of hating help them hating makes you a poser
edit: blank decks cost about the same as a ccs deck and ccs does make blank of their own

Hmm, on second analysis maybe I was a noob because the deck itself was $30 and it said 69.99 for COMPLETE set-up...ugh.

Get pop-lites off ebay. Perfect shape, last long, and when you buy 5 at a time it averages out to 15 bucks a deck.

just get a good brand of deck e.g. element, almost, baker and don't worry about the other parts just now...

Trusted trucks: Venture, Thunder, Indy, Royal.
Trusted wheels: Ricta, Spitfire, Autobahn.

Most blank decks are good, but for trucks and wheels, you should never go cheap and get the no-name stuff. The Indy-Ricta combo is unbeatable.

I would think that spending tons of cash on an expensive board just because someone famous uses it or it has nice designs on it makes you look like a poser more so than having a generic one.

Then again, I don't skate. I don't see the point/enjoyment in it.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
