a wide anti-hero and some wider indys. spifires and swiss bearings and call that shit a day.


Pretty much. But if he's just starting out, I'd probably get Reds. Like 1/3 of the price of Swiss and he wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

koston on nike???? what the fuck? why would you leave lakai.
also bones swiss are really worth the price...just gotta keep em clean
wide boards and indies too, shits the best. I skate an 8.25 and

Are there any decent setups that cost less than 100 bones?

Skate shops around me start out with 150+.

Honestly, not really.

Shit you need:
Indys: roughly 40
Bones Reds: 15
Wheels: around 30
Hardware/grip/all that jazz: 10

That's 95 right there. Assuming you get a 30 dollar shop deck (which isn't the best, but it'll do if need be), that's 125. You could dip under 100 but that would mean getting really shitty trucks or really shitty wheels.

Why don't you just ride your local shop deck. Decks really don't make a difference. Besides the graphics, which really doesn't matter. Plus, you save 20 bucks.

LAWL!

Ride an Anti-Hero then ride your shop deck...fuck, ride any other brand name, and you'll be able to tell the difference. Easily worth the 20 extra dollars.

Shape/concave is personal preference. Wood/glue really isn't. Deluxe uses the best wood/glue in the industry. They are literally the best boards you can purchase, qualitywise.

I've been skating local shop decks for years and love them. I've never been more than "decent" though, so maybe I do need a pro deck. blushing
