No thanks on the Orangatangs.

That video is pretty cool! I likes it. I already do some paintball video/editing myself, but I've been thinking about doing some longboard edits. There's a longboard club at the University I go to, so I'm pretty sure they won't mind me doing some videos for them here and there.

So are Original longboards any good when it comes to carving, dancing, and commuting?

I thought so. I get the feeling if I get an Original and carve too hard I'll just slide all the time and land on my butt, which knowing my luck will happen very often. I'm looking to get something that is good for commuting, nice for dancing, and I can definitely get some carving in there. I want to get the Dervish, but I'm very well aware that Loaded over prices their things. Any suggestions on what I could get that isn't Loaded and has a good price tag on it?

Any other suggestions? haha
I've heard their trucks suck.

Is it possible to just get a Dervish or any other drop-through board and just put my Randals from my Arbor on there? Do I need some type of special piece to attach it to the board?

yes gmanuel that is possible, no need for a special piece.

and it's possible to slide any wheel, some more than others.

I'm strongly against Original, I think they're misleading in their advertisement and have become more of a production piece than a movement which is what they started out as. I've been very unimpressed with their equipment, however, there are some in here that will swear by their product.

check out my board on the previous page! It's for sale. I know Ibewipen wants to buy it but if you're interested in that board or something like it I can get you on the phone with Pim (owner of legendary) and he can build you whatever you want.

explain what? Long distance pump would utilize the spring (obviously) by creating more power and snap in a pump.

And personally I think it'd be fun to carve around on some springs.

while sliding you do not want the resistance the springs offer...while going downhill the springs create instability.

Not why they are good for that, why they are ONLY good for that. You can adjust the springs tension or buy softer/stiffer springs. Stiffer springs I use on my 41 for downhill and softer on my 37 for carving.

why when you could not have them at all, and have a truck that's built for Downhill?

what's the fastest you've gone downhill?

Everyone around here must be than, the stiff springs allow very little room for any speed wobble.

I believe there is a video of Brad doing just over 60 on his pintail 46 somwhere in arizona

its been 2 months since i ****ed my knee for the 4th time. hurts daily, and today its been doing a clicky thing. doc thinks i tore my meniscus, and the first doc was wrong.

dont hurt your knees!

i hate doing heelside pendys nonstop, it scares the **** out of other skaters on some corners lol. i just need to stop. i was so damn comfortable at toeside predrifts too, they came natural before heelside anythings.

Hurting our knees runs in my family, too. It quite in fact suck. It's not hereditary, mostly stupidity. Mine's not as bad, though, as long as I take care of it.

Just droppin in to say this thread is pretty awesome and ive learned a lot just lurking... I hate the kids around campus who you can obviously tell have never longboarded, or skateboarded for that matter, in their entire lives and are just doing it to fit in.

I don't think there are any of those kids around where I'm from haha. There probably is, I just haven't noticed them. You know what I hate? When I catch a stupid pebble on one of my wheels and I eat asphalt because of it.
