I just had surgery and I knew they were doing a lot of work up there but no one told me they were putting screws in. I got a post-op xray taken yesterday and was blind sided when I saw I had 20 screws in my face.
I just bought .25 shockpads. for 5 bucks shipped. And i tighten all the hardware and the wheels just enough so it doesnt rattle much anymore. Hopefully the shockpads will just be better for the board in general an keep from cracks.
Eventually the wheels will be too small to ride comfortably. My best suggestion is to youtube or google on how to cut a longboard. If you go in just sawing at it, odds are you are going to ruin the deck and crack the layers making it unsafe to ride.
That is most likely what I'll have to do. I really really like my Arbor board. It's nice and simple, just what I need. The only downfall of it is I keep getting wheel bite, and my knees can only take so much of it :/
One of the kids I know from my highschool, kinda an idiot/big stoner (granted I smoke but we wont get into that topic), started producing his own longboards. Not really so much as producing but making and I feel like he's not very good at it...
Anybody know any good videos showing the process? I wanna buy one but I dont want it to be a piece of ****
