they were flashbacks, lol




Watching that slide video makes me realize how far i've come in longboarding. That was one of the videos that made me want to get into sliding, and now i can do all that stuff and more better than the guys do it in the video. Stoked.

It's kind of like comparing a really souped up Honda that's technically faster than a stock corvette, yet which one would you actually enjoy driving more? The corvette for a lot of reasons.
powersliding is sliding. ur wrong.

if your wheels are breaking at all you are sliding.

No **** Sherlock. I was referring to the action of being in the slide, not trying to break traction.

Next time please don't troll our thread, post wrong information repeatedly, and use proper grammar. Everyone in this thread would be happy to discuss why we prefer certain wheels for certain disciplines, but if you don't have experience in our preferred discipline, don't try to correct us on what we should like.

i just got some randal 180s 42*and they are sick. also i really got to test out the griffin washers and they are sick im running 95a double bushings on a 42* base plate with my trucks semi loose and they got no wobbles and still had a semi tight turning radius. they are expensive but worth it.
edit: what is the the kicktail thing on the in this vid thinking about trading for a voodoo

Skated GMR all day today and then went mid 50's today on a sick secret run. Was pretty epic.

^ Such a good video, definitely worth watching again.

Mah bad for posting going along with the video train but this spot in nyc is the perfect spot for freeriding. Light traffic and steep enough to have a lot of fun on.. they call it darktower and its owned by tech sliders. The EW team has some gnarly skaters.

hey guys i'm pretty new to longboarding and idk if i'm in the right thread but iwas hoping for some advice on what kind of board i need. i'm trying to do almost everything but bomb big hills. I'll probably slide, dance, carve small hills and freeride. can you guys point me in the right direction on boards and what flex i need
