Eyyyyyy

I'm looking to getting back into skating a little. I still have my old skateboard.

Element deck, independent trucks, bone swiss bearings, spitfire wheels... not sure about the other stuff.

Anyways, I probably need at least new bearings/wheels. What should I look into thats not too expensive? Deck is still in great shape, but its wider than all my friends' boards for some reason. Maybe cause its 7 years old.

Well after 7 years, my bearings have collected quite a bit of crap in them, and my wheels are pretty beat.

Boards come in different shapes and sizes so no worries their unless you do not like the feel of it just buy a new deck. As for bearing their all the same (have the same job and you cant tell the difference from one and other) so it doesnt matter which set of bearings you chose on buying. As for a couple brands that have been around the block in that field try speed demons or redz, ive been using those brands for years. Now for wheels reall agian its alot of the same **** so it really doesnt matter what wheels you end up going for. Mabye get some newer spitfires I never had/have problems with them. Get mabye some 52 or 53mm since you just starting up agian and those are a good size to start with. Anymore questions were here to help ya.

I like the width of the deck I have cause I have more stability on it, but I can flip the board easier and ollie higher with my friend's board.

Buy Mini Logo bearing's if you feel you really have to. I got mine for $6 and I prefer them to my Bones Redz.

You can't reallyt feel the difference, it's just some bearings last ALOT longer than others. I find the Redz ones only work for like three four weeks before they explode. I had Luckey bearings once, and I threw my board down when I was running to get speed for a set. The bearing exploded when I got on and my board completely stopped and I just flew.

Damn, the same pair.
I guess it depends on how hard you skate.
i've gone through about 3 pairs of wheels since the begining of 08
and i usually ride 49-51's and i ride them till the core begins to show.

Yea I use about 3 sets through the whole year. I've Got Lots of new spare sets too that I buy to stay stalked up. And same goes for brand new spare trucks, bearings, and of corse decks. My friends always joke, "dude how can you afford all of this new gear, you ****ing sponsored or something". So long story short to be cool infront of your friends and act like your sponsored, buy spare gear
