Indy's and Ace's are pretty good I can guess for cruising. For my street setup though, I much prefer Thunders. They turn better, but with control and on demand. So they're stable as well... Indy's don't turn as tight. Ace's have a good turn, but you have to set them so loose they'll become unstable and wobbly.
But this is of course more important if you're lining up for flip to ledge tricks, hehe..
Wow I major failed at the whole drop in thing... It's like I have drop in phobia :p. Well I messed up my leg pretty bad so I'll be taking a break from sk8 for awhile lol. I got tons of epic vid footage of me an my friends an so far all ready one small sponsor!
EDIT: Nice vid electropop! Thank you for sharing them. I might post some more of our's if theres any interest in this one :)
It's bout time I posted in this thread again! While I'm still a bit stiff from injuries, I have been back on the board and enjoying it! My friends and I have sorta formed a skateteam; I'm the camera guy since I don't know any tricks (/is ashamed...) and I don't want to be in the videos lolz. So far my dear friend Corn is the only one being sponsored (with free tshirts), this is the first vid using that sponsor: A Little Apparel . While the tricks aren't as impressive as electropop's lil bro, it is very funny, especially the dialog SO MAKE SURE YOU CAN HEAR IT WELL! Anyhoo, good luck pickin out which camera guy is me cause nearly 10 diff people helped shoot this. Enjoi!
Btw, if you liked the vid check out Corn's blog, full of lolworthy stuff!
Took out my Flip deck and Venture trucks for a spin last weekend to go and get the paper, on Saturday morning. This weekend it was raining, so I didnt bother.
Oooh, thanks for that ghettoblaster flick. So nostalgic. I remember seeing the photo sequence of that massive 360 flip tailgrab in a transworld magazine and I believe that kinky 50-50 was an opening in a transworld movie.. Crazy.
My friend recently broke his fibula (it's in the leg yo) from wiping out really bad. He was jumping a 6ft+ volcano and had to bail because some little kid came out in front of him. What the heck? I mean, parents : Keep the kids out of the bowl. Now my friend can't even walk... Anyone else having this problem? Our park is overrun with these tiny kids (an it's a pretty hardcore park). Really, something should be done before a kid gets killed by a collision or something...
I switching to the dark side! Well, the long side I should say... I'm getting too old for regular skating... and I'm ready for something bigger, more mature (?). Here's what I have my eye on :http://dregsskateboards.com/i-5768422-42-fiberslide-101.html . I see a lot of my fellow college students riding longboards/ cruisers through campus (it's skateboard friendly :). Pair one of these with some super reds or swiss bones, and I'd have a sweet setup.
