dude, nice board!!
forgot about this thread. I took a quick pic (sorry bout the sloppy cut and paste job).
vintage G&S Fifreflex 25.5" w/Bennet Pro trucks and Kryptonics wheels
"reissue" G&S Fibreflex 45" e.Xkate trucks. no wheels right now but have some Sector 9s floating around in my storage.
I gave up on bombing hills. I aint going out like that. So the long board is probably going up for sale. The shortie is usually in my car and I use it alot for quick transportation or on the rare occasion, in a skate park. The kids either laugh at it or are super stoked. "nice Banana board!" I dont even miss ollies!
nice long board!! some dude brought a longboard to class with him last week, it looked sweet as hell.
i'm sorry to hear that.
Ah, shoes. I found the Nike Janoskis and couldn't be happier. It's a general consensus that vulcan soled shoes don't last, but I don't see why that is.. My every favourite has been a vulcan shoe and all of them have lasted very long. Ipath Reeds were good, adidas Campus vulcs and now Nike air harbors and the Janoskis. Super grippy, poppy and long lasting. Through all the approx 60 shoes I've skated through, these have been the most versatile.
Oh, anyone enjoying the summer yet? I learned nollie cab flips and switch pressure flips while playing a game of skate yesterday with a friend.. Gotta love the summer with its new bag of tricks :D
Going preppy shoes etc., was way better. Better control, better fit, cheaper, and no worry about the image! In those days, of course, it was hard because I was 18 and really worried about sticking with the skater image. After I came back from Sweden though, I didn't care and just rocked anything as did all the veteran skaters - we had nothing to prove to anyone. Our skating said enough. If anyone called us losers, we'd show them the stuff and call them wannabes.
Sony NWZ-A8something and porta pros. IEM's don't work for me. The park near me has lots of flat area and breathing room in general, so no collision risks..
Usually I like listening to something quite hectic.. Zappa, Kraan, Mahavishnu Orchestra.. Fusion stuff in general :)
Cool, If I'm just cruising I'll use a junky old sansa mp3 player... some skull candy/other cheapo buds I got lying around. Listen to pop rock and some punk... though lately my music taste has greatly changed to stuff more jazzy. Just finished watchin entire series of Cowboy Bebop and love the style of music in it!

When I skated, there was no such thing as a pocketable portable player, unless minidisc, but they would jump around and were too heavy. And, inner earphones weren't out yet. But, I was a Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, the Cure Skater.
I dislike both Fallen and DVS/Lakai. Too bulky and not enough grip or feel... Vulcan shoes in general are good, but nothing beats the sole on Nike Janoskis. Plus, the toe area's seamless, so it lasts long in every regard not forgetting awesome feel. I couldn't switch 360 flip better with any other shoe :)
