I just ate it so hard tech sliding. I wanted to try a jail bird so I tried this one kids. It was my las run and I kicked out for a speed check and my back foot fell off. After that I went airborne a few feet of air. When I came down I landed on my right arm. Now I can barley lift it.

Nice pics man, I actually got a great day of boarding in today.

I can't BELIEVE how much easier, faster, and more stable it is riding this thing compared to the dervish. I've yet to really throw any 180s because I'm still adjusting myself to it, although I have been doing some checks. But the pockets for your feet is ridiculous and so comfy. I found a alleyway and was shreddin the **** out of it. I love longboarding.

Pretty much exactly what my board looks like, but i have Paris 180s and at the minute yellow stim's on it. But I'm actually supposed to be getting some flashbacks in the mail today, along with some thumbcutter .

Although I know this board has little flex, coming from a flex 1 dervish that i rode EVERYWHERE. It feels amazing, and untill i move out next spring and witness some of these west coast mountains/downhill runs. I won't be purchasing anything that's beefier. Cause are "downhill" sucks here.

Badass, plus if you want a stiffer deck for bigger hills later you don't need to get rid of the dk penguin. I've always heard awesome things about that deck

DK's are a bit flexy but you can definitely still DH on them. I friend of mine who rides for LBL DH's on a custom flexier version just because. He's kinda crazy though hahaha

Oh trust me i won't be giving this thing up forever. It's fun as hell so far and I'm still adjusting to it.

I see myself getting a grease shark or a megalodon whenever i find these epic DH runs.

Verr nice. Let us know what you think of them!
I use a pair of holesome gloves right now, cocoa butter scented. hahaha
I won them in a push race a while ago.

If you guys were to do a design on your grip tape, what would it be? I'm already getting ideas for my future deck (and when I mean future I'm talking about ~1 year).

Edit:
That DK looks seeeeeeeeeeexy.

I've done a little grip art before, but it takes a long time so I kept mine simple. I did always think a troll face would be awesome if you want to really invest time in detail. Here are mine you can kind of see, a dodgy face and not sure what to call the thing on my darby.

Loaded gloves are nice. They kind of rip easily but, if you are coming from leather gloves, they have so much more mobility. They also look sexy with all of there colors. Make sure to throw some advanced slide labs pucks on them.

I bought a 6 doller dashboard camera mount and drilled holes in it and put my flip on it. I also made a pole cam. It was all really cheap.

skated some gnarly roads in Malibu yesterday with the skatehouse guys and ended up smashing my face into a guard rail on one of the runs haha. I'm ok though aside from a few minor cuts and a chipped tooth, thankfully i was wearing my predator otherwise I dont even wanna think about what my face would look like hahaha

Speaking of gloves. I actually just ordered some of the sector9 driver gloves. Mainly because they have HUGE palm pucks. I hope it was worth it.

I will have to say loaded's gloves held together fine for me. One finger seemed to wear down all of the velcro but i dont use finger pucks so yaaay.

AND speaking of crashes. Mine wasn't as bad. But me and my buddy were kind of drafting each other/downhill runs i guess you could say. About halfway down this hill he slides to stop. I didn't know and went to adjust my back foot to get ready for a coleman. IMMEDIATE speed wobbles. Somehow rode them out for about 20ft or 30ft. Made it to the grass/dirt on the side of the road and did some kind of superman dive thing. Could have been my face and concrete though. wow. hahaha
