      The LY DaThug is sweet. I'm between it and a Wedge Flex for my next board - altho the WF would be a better carver I'm sure, having the versatility of the kicktail is really nice.

      just a random question for yall. do yall push with your back foot? i don't know why, but i push with my front. i always have ever since i started skating like 8 years ago. just a thing i've noticed that everyone usually uses their back foot. it took me a while when i started snowboarding to be able to use my back foot

      Sector 9 Craving Trilam
      Sector 9 Bamboo Pintail
      I ride garages with both and bomb hills with both but i am more partial to the bamboo board. the carving trilam requires alot of force on tight turns....

      Got a new board put together:


      Arbor Fleetwood 43", Randal 180s, Flashback 78As, Biltins, wedged front flat riser rear
      Thinking about softer bushings but it rides sooooo nice already!! Perfect all-rounder for me [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Parking garages are my favorite.

      Holy **** MDmod we need to skate (always looking for new local folks)
      Ps is that garage in Towson because it looks to be the one next to the one I got a gnarly skull fracture in.

    14. 11-03-2006 07:10 AM #64
      Yeah, that one is in towson, that actual one sucks though because it's chained off on the third floor so you have to hop the chain, and sometimes that turns out disasterous. Theres a few good ones in towson though.

      That yellow ledge in that pic looks like it needs some action. I <3 Parking Garages.

      gravity has some pretty sick boards, I fell in love with their 47" Hyper-Carve 1.

      I think it would be good to start off on. Kicks for when you need them, concave, small flex.

      Got a 46" Arbor Pin
      ABEC 11 Gumballs
      Randal 180s...
      Got in to skating in 1999 on the short board and had a comet longboard to ride to the beach. I moved from there to AZ and joined the military. I ordered the board up top to satisfy the craving for carving when not in the Dub...Will have to post pics....Beautiful Board

      awesome post...
      i'm riding a modified cheapo "lightning bolt" deck i got for free on some seismics with kryptonics. I cut out room for the wheels, and shortened it to fit in my Golf.
      mostly just transportation around school, and parking garages. There are some crazy (for florida) hills that have seen some action too.
      here's a stupid pic

      Added a LongBoardLarry Humu 24" to my collection - SO MUCH FUN!!! It has 85mm tracker darts and 60mm Retro Bertz wheels.

      Thanks to this thread, I ordered another gumball to replace the torn-up pink wheel I have. Longboarding freaking rocks!

      i have a sector9 with sector9 wheels and destructo bearings and not sure the brand of the trucks and doh doh bushings
      same shape as this board, i'll get a pic later

      (not my board, just the same shape and trucks)

      Those are Randal R-2's. Some of the best trucks for longboards ever. Flip the hangers.
