Yeah thats what I really wanted to do was just start pushing around and stuff first, since I heard skatings a good way to get around college campuses so I was planning on that in the future. Also because I'm going to my country Eritrea for vacation next year so I think it'd be fun to skate there. Bunch of little kids like wtf is this kid doing?

I just don't know what set up to get lol

Best way is to just go to your local skateshop and see what they have, they'll most likely help you out and they're friendly. I currently ride a Chocolate with Royal trucks with Bones Red bearings and blank 50mm wheels. Bones red bearings are cheap and smooth so you should stick with those, Royal trucks are pretty good but so are Indy's and Thunder.

Yeah I was thinking about doing that, I've got a couple of good skate shops around, thanks for the advice btw!

For a deck there really isn't much of a difference in weight (don't get a tech board such as almost double impact, element push, blind eternal life, because those are heavy). You'd be fine with a shop deck at your local shop instead of a pro board since they cost more.


thanks! any brand of boards you would recommend? I think a skinnier board would suit me well probably a 7.75? I noticed there are different heights for the trucks, which would you recommend?
what size is your shoe

hey guys, I'm getting interested with the idea of skating again, for getting exercise/having fun, etc. one thing is, last time I skated was when I was like 10 years old and only had a shitty board from toysrus.

I'm just hoping you guys can help me out with the basics on what to get on a board. I'm looking for a lighter board if that makes sense cause that shitty toysrus board I used to have was heavy as shit even though I could still ollie and kickflip (sometimes). Looking for street skating and tricks.

thanks in advance!
reals are really good, size 775 to 8, independent trucks, bones stf, reds bearings would be a good setup for street

HB fam, I'm looking to learn how to skate this summer (free time and all).

What's the best set-up I can get for <$100? What tips do you have for a new guy?

Thanks, whodis.
you wont get a good setup for under 100. Deck: 40-60, Trucks: 25 per truck, Wheels: 30, bearings: 15-60

Kids are too good these days. I can't even play a game of skate with them without getting skunked.

There were these three little kids (no older than 10) at a local skatepark grinding the shit out of all the rails and ledges. Everyone stopped and looked at them because they were so small and so damn good. I never took the time to learn much of grinds in fear of breaking myself. Looks fun though.

How is being only 17 too old to skate? Just do it. You plan on trick skating or cruising?
