Since there is an official skateboarding thread...I figured why not spread the stoke for longboarding as well? smokeyface

Here's mine

Dervish - Flex 2
Paris 180mm Trucks
Otangs InHeat
Khiro Bushings



And here are my two pairs of slide gloves:


Anyone else?

lol once you get into sliding you're going to want more! at least that's with me. I'm starting to get the stand up slides down a little better as my otangs wear in a little more, but too bad I have to send them back because of their recall. Hopefully I'll get their new freeride wheels to replace them so I don't have to break in another pair of wheels to get back into sliding blushing

is that blood on your board, ska?

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.

Finally got my board on Friday night and haven't had a chance to really ride since it's been wet since Saturday morning and will be wet until like Friday. Here are some bad pictures but hopefully when it's sunnier outside, I'll get better pictures.

XVD Croc
Paris 180mm
Blank 70mm 83a

Got it on May 1st but it's been raining/wet since. A long-awaited dry day has come today to take pictures.
Click for bigger pictures and more information. Thanks to xvdlongboards for making me this.

went out bombing hills with a freind today was pretty nice out and roads were nice and dry.

story of the day: coming down this pretty steep street on my way home from pizza place and some jerk off 40 year old comes flying out of his driveway on his bicycle and almost clips me and he looks at me like wtf you doin? as he peddls down the street feeling all badass i start pumping and geting my drop knee going on to catch up with him and so i come up behind him and start carving and near missing him for shits and giggles. pretty fun at the time

^lol that sounds fucking rad man


hahahah my friend trying to manual down a little incline, got fucked up shortly after this clip

this is our little longboard chill spot during the summer. theres a pretty steep hill @ that top that goes down to that straight away/parking lot and then a lil uphill on the otherside to slow down. to the left at the end of that road in the next pic is an epic fucking hill straight into traffic, but still rad. all of this with water on both sides haha pretty chill



another friend

Hi guys, I'm new to Hypebeast and I've been a lurker for a while and I decided to join finally. :D

I was wondering if you guys have any insight on commuter boards such as one for a large scale city like Chicago. Like rolling around on campus. I've been hearing things about Bustin and Earthwings, what do you guys think?

Got any suggestions on trucks, bearings and wheels?

^not sure how those boards are, but i ride a arbor pocket rocket its a nice and small board, you can get the basic randall downhill trucks and abec 11 gumballs and tht should make a very smooth riding commuter board
