Skatboarding: A little Help?

just because someone says certain deck companies are better then others doesnt necessarily mean its true.. its all preference in most cases, but not all the time. People have brand loyality to companies like for example someone may stick to Girl decks instead of Chocolate but there the exact same board so just go whatever your comfortable with for now. in terms of trucks, if your just starting out, for one thing dont listen to what anyone says about the brand of trucks, what you really need to be looking for is the bushings on the trucks. go to a skateshop and see for yourself, you wanna go with a tougher bushing rather then a softer one if your just starting out. id say you go for 52mm wheels but thats just my personal opinion and in terms of brand.. just choose whatever you like best, i look at the wheels befor hand and see how much they bounce so that the softer the wheel, the smoother you ride .. pretty much take into consideration with some of the stuff people are telling you but honestly the best thing to do is to go to an independendent skateshop, have them help you pick out your first set-up and that you can decide what you feel more comfortable with in person (i.e board width) because chances are there gonna know alot more than what people are telling you to do on this message board... unless you go to west49 or zumies.

what's your favorite skate deck and why?

blank decks are different from most pro decks, with the exception of a few. MOST blank decks, especially shop decks, usually uses recycled wood with maple wood when they make there decks. its cheaper to make, and shops use that method because they cant afford an account with any company that makes 100% maple decks since they cant afford to match the minimum requirement. while most pro decks use 100% maple, and some blank decks like Mini Logo for example, some pro decks still use a cheap method to make decks with recycled wood such as Almost, Chocolate/Girl, etc. and riding a wider or slimmer deck doesn't necessarily have to do with your height and shit. its all preference. People think that if your taller or heavier, you have to ride a wider deck which is wrong. most pros ride 7.5. and if you buy a deck JUST because of the graphic or hype like supreme decks for example, then thats pretty wack imo. it just makes me think that your some poser or w/e that started skating because of lupe fiasco.
