you need to learn how to pop better if you think you need lighter gear. all of that shit is just a gimmick for the little kids.

8 inch Anti Hero
Indys/Bones bushings
Bones Swiss no shields
50 mm blanks

Adidas Campus vulc

As for trucks, there really is no reason to not get Indys. Basically perfect trucks.

I never understood the whole "light = better" gimmick. I used to ride like 8.25-8.5 with Indys and big ass wheels because heavier boards just felt so much easier to control to me.

Well there's less weight resistance however I would imagine it would be almost unnoticeable.

I usually just get whatever is cheap as far as decks and trucks. I always use swiss bearings and ricta wheels though.

spitfire is good becuase they are the OG wheel company, made in the us by DLX. they are for the most part no bullshit basic wheels.

8" Shop Board (Can't push no popsicle board)
Royal Trucks (Got em cheap herd they were bad but, they're actually pretty nice.)
Blank Wheels
Reds bearings

Too many dope skaters to have a favorite.

Decks don't really matter as long as the size is right.

It's shoes, doesn't really do shit all to your skating but right now I'm on Supras.
