Agreed. But the jams can be pretty tight. What's the TV schedule for skate park this weekend? Been scrolling through the TV guide but can't find it for the life of me.

this. like if your still riding anything smaller than an 8 your blowing it pretty bad and you are more than likely not a very good skateboarder. OR your like 13 years old.

Broke my ankle on a down bar a few weekends ago. Been working on filming since Im in a cast and shit. Ill try to get an edit up soon.

i'm not saying if you skate a small board you're a punk bitch, but for real there's no reason for ANYONE to skate 7.5 if you're not under 10...

10 y.o or 10 shoe size? lol

I'm trying to get back into skating now that it's fall. I currently have a 7.75 and I think its too wide for my 7.5 small feet. But then again, I haven't been skating long.

I used to love skating but it got annoying having to buy a new pair of 30$+ kicks every month.
December 01, 2010 @ 01:13:19
I ride

Zoo york - 7.75
Destructo trucks - They suck.
52mm wheels, no fucking clue what they are
Hardware - Diamond
Bearings - Diamond Abec 7 Hell fast
Grip - Mob

Shit set up but whatever I only got back into skating and pulled up some random parts off people and bought a new deck.

Does anyone have any experience with spitfire f1 street burners?
December 01, 2010 @ 08:49:03

December 01, 2010 @ 19:17:01
7.9 julien stranger

51mm 101 satori wheels
December 02, 2010 @ 06:54:31
Just got huge fucking flat spots on mine from being an idiot. I can't really decide whether to take the move into even smaller wheels 51mm or move up to a 54-55mm. My friends currently ride 55's and they love it, they say it's faster when they cruise and it doesn't really affect their pop? Does anyone ride 54-55mm for street? Spitfire make street burners in a 55 and I was always curious of anyone actually rode them?
December 02, 2010 @ 08:52:03
I ride 54's they're the perfect wheel in my opinion, they're really fast without weighing me down
December 02, 2010 @ 19:11:29
I ride 53 Spitfire classics. Perfect wheels. Lasts longer and feels better than 50s and 51s that I used to ride before. There really isn't any big difference that I've felt since I switched wheels. Although when skating through downtown, feels a little bit better.
Never tried the streetburners. Anyone recommend them?
December 03, 2010 @ 03:19:16
Just ordered a 51mm classic street burners. Big stab in the dark because they didn't have the ones I wanted in store so I went smaller instead of bigger. I've never ridden small wheels before so hopefully they're good.
December 04, 2010 @ 12:33:53
Setup and wheel posts lawl

8.38 Real
149 Indys x Bones hard bushings
Swiss no shields
52 mm blanks
As far as the wheel size discussion, I highly doubt a 1mm difference in wheel size will affect your performance. The first few batches of F1 urethane was shitty, but they fixed it really quickly. Regardless, if you're just starting, you're not going to be able to tell the difference between different urethanes and 1-2mm differences in wheel size.
December 09, 2010 @ 02:40:12
I moved down from 52's to a 50mm. I got the F1 Street Burners. I don't know if it was because my last pair of blanks were just a piece of shit or not but these wheels are amazing. They're fast, they're light, they're really really smooth.

About whether or not the extra 1 of 2 mm matters or not that is rather true you probably won't be able to tell too much but after getting these wheels I finally got kick flips down.

How are the thunders?^
December 14, 2010 @ 19:40:24
I love Thunder trucks. Always been my favorite.
But has anyone had a problem with them bending? I usually ride the lows, the 145s I think (whichever fits an 8 ). I was working on flatground one day in the Summer, breaking in the new trucks, and check this out:

Notice anything awkward about the one on the left? Never hit a ledge or went down a gap with them. Just straight up bent on flatground after about 2 hours. Anyone else have something like this happen to them?
December 16, 2010 @ 17:30:54
^Woah what the fuck man? Thats probably a manufacturing defect you might be able to get warranty on that. From flat ground only? Unless you weigh over 100kg that doesn't make sense haha. Try and see if you can get warranty for them. That puts me off getting them now smh . Might just get the indy lows.
