    Default Skateboarding?

    Does anyone on here skateboard? If so let me know what's your set-up and whether you skate streets or parks or both.

    I have a(n):

    8.5 in. Ohana Deck
    Thunder Trucks
    Spitfire Wheels
    Black Panther Bearings

    black label deck (forgotten the width but it was narrow)
    Independent Trucks
    Spitfire Wheels
    and i've forgotten which bearings, they were nice though.

    I have a Sector 9 longboard and a local made blank deck with gull wing trucks and big wheels, I built it for speed and I also use big wheels because it less likely to go flying off on the steet because of a pebble or something. but saying that I dont skate so much anymore

    GAwddd I can barely remeber my set up...
    I had a zero deck, pretty thin
    A set of venture trucks in black and red
    Pig bearings
    Spitfire wheels
    I've also got an organika deck, and a popwar
    I intended starting again this summer, haven't found anyone to go with yet, I hate skating on my own.

    I started skating again a few weeks ago.

    I have -

    Toy Machine Billy Marks Houser Pro 7.75
    Royal Trucks
    Enuff Wheels and bearings

    And it's all about concrete parks. And street skating.

    Indoor parks are teh suck.
    And in the choir i saw a sad messiah,
    He was bored and tired of my laments,
    'said I died for you one time but never again.

    One foot shuvs - I can't stand them, I tried one over the funbox at my local indoor a while ago and it was the worst fall ever, I landed it on right on the tail of my deck and you can imagine where it went from there.
    Last time I went out was a week ago or so and I could manage varial kicks, fakey big spins, 360 shuvs and kickflip to manual, which I was pretty proud of considering I hadn't been skating in over two years
