Do it, you can never have too many topmount speedboards. They make up 99% of my quiver. Also, you should help me with my techslide and I can help you with your dh/pre-drifts? You can see my fail with techsliding here. That was from today.

I've had this board for a little while but I just use it to cruise around campus and to get from place to place. Now I'm beginning to get more into longboarding and was wondering if this will be a decent board to start learning downhill riding and trying to learn to slide on. What style of riding is this board suited towards?

I can help. You probably should try, tricks with more rotations. One of the most important things I have learned is don't take too much weigh off your board or else you probably won't get back to it.

That board is suited towards cruising, but there is no reason why you can't learn to downhill and slide on it. I can't really tell how long it is, but I'd say you really dont need to get another board until you are going faster than 25-30mph. The wheels that board comes with are great for sliding too. My only advice would be to get some bearing spacers as most cruisers usually don't come with any. (most skate shops will have them or you can purchase them online for <$3).

I think it's just a bit over 38" long and just to clarify it came with these wheels. They're 65mm 78a wheels. I've seen this board come with a few different types so just wanted to make sure these were the wheels you were referring to.

With spacers, sector9 wheels feel awesome for sliding :nododgy:. Just be sure you're wearing a helmet if you don't have one already.

yeah, it is just weird how differently different boards, trucks, and wheels slide. the 78a zig zags in my avvy would only slide when i forced them through a turn too hard, but the sharp-lipped tunnel tarantulas i have now slide a lot more predictably. not that sliding is really any fun on revenge trucks.

Those wheels will be sick. Just get some spacers, a helmet, and make yourself a set of slide gloves and you're good to go.

If you enjoy your fattail, then no.

What he means is often newer people will buy loaded or original gear because of their videos and thinking its the best gear available. They just have higher priced stuff that's not actually higher quality, and most of it is not fit for downhill or freeride which can be misleading in their videos.

Many other smaller companies sell higher quality boards fit for speed or thrashing at a lower price. This causes loaded and original to get a lot of heat from more experienced people. Just get a board you think fits your desired discipline on specs as opposed to because some pro riders can make it look good, and don't look back. No one deck is perfect for everything.

Edit: it's kind of like the Smart Parts for the longboard industry

How do you guys find cool places to skate? That seems to be what is keeping me from skating more. I want to find a huge ditch in my area

Google maps is clutch. But having other skaters show you spots is the best way to do it because then you already know what to look out for and things like that.

So this passed weekend, a downhill skateboarder and a motorcyclist collided on one of my local runs. Thankfully everyone is going to live, but it created a very scary situation. Remember to ALWAYS stay in your own lane when skating live roads.
