REAL since day one out today. just finished downloading gonna watch it in hd pretty excited

That omnitech figure thing is a terrible idea. That's why skate, skate 2, and skate 3 exist. I lol'd at how they filmed that shit like an actual skating video. The guy looked so dumb holding that thing, and I can't believe they wasted time creating a mini skatepark.

if there's one near you. If not get a blank deck, ventures or indi trucks
blank wheels and cheap bolts.

This might help Guide

i appreciate it man.

i don't really have a budget, but can a quality board be found around $150? I definitey want a quality board and one thats fast as I like to cruise around.

since i am very new to skateboarding, i don't really know what any of that means.

i heard to stay away from store complete boards, but IDK.
May 25, 2011 @ 14:54:59
also like i said, im almost 20 and 5'10 180 so I don't about sizes or anything.
May 25, 2011 @ 15:29:23
Store completes get a bad wrap i think it depends on the price and what you getting
some times the deals are good and you can skate them then and there.

If you you mainly wanna cruise you could look into a cruzer or long board the wheels
are bigger trucks higher and decks wider. I think there easier to control but
there mainly designed for cursing no tricks. You could get a regular skate board but
get slightly bigger wheels and wider deck there still cruzable and you can
do tricks easier.

Blank deck is a plain deck no design usually one colour there cheaper cause there plain
some are like half price of a normal one.

$150 you should be able too if shop around indi's are independent truck, ventures a
truck company as well. Speed comes down to wheels and bearings.

Sizing I ride a 7.75(width) if you can get to a skate shop go stand on a few boards to
see what feels right. You could measure your mongoose one for reference.

I'm far from an expert, buy yea hope that helps

how do you guys feel about this? it says the complete deck is $150 and it looks pretty sweet. do you think I should customize some things?

i want a quality board (definitely a skateboard), but again, nothing too fancy as im a beginner.
May 25, 2011 @ 22:00:08
I think if the decks $109 the parts you'll get with the $149 complete will be junk
And if you add better parts you will be nearer to $200 maybe over. I'd also just
get a regular deck there no need for extra light or shock proof... sure others will
agree???

Here's a deck i built for $130 without postage



Oh my days the UK prices are horrible in comparison
