Nice, nice.

 

You guys got any ideas on a good blank deck I could get? I'm tired of paying 60 bucks for a deck just becase it's got some paint on it.

 

Has anybody done something pretty cool out of pure luck? The other day I f*cked up getting out of a noseslide (I pop out) and I did a noseslide heel out. I landed it so clean too, and it was all luck. It felt great.

 

Ah sh*t, I got some Lakais, the Limited SJ3's, and they are great. Just as, if not better, than D3's (which f*cking OWN).

Hmmm, Blank deck aiy ?. Have you ever heard of Hudson ?, Hudtech or something like that.Mabay it's just a British make,But whatever, it's £30 Here, Complete.

 

With Hudson,you can get ones with paint or a blank one.They're both the same price.

 

or if you just want a blank deck it's £10. Not bad IMO.

 

I've been working on some sketchy freestyle stuff and some Jackass stuff.

 

I've been trying to spin off the top of a garden shed on and oppostite bunker thing.

 

Too bad the f*cking thing cracked.Good thing tho, I still have my newer one ready to skate with.

You're recommending Hudson? Those things are so sh*t that I would never have even bought or even rode on one whenever I started skating. They suck. In fact, they should be like.. Made illegal.

 

gtame - Can't really recommend a blank deck.. The decks you get vary enough from shop to shop, let alone across an ocean. If you can though, I'd recommend trying to find somewhere that sells seconds decks, ones with graphics imperfections etc. It knocks hilarious amounts off an otherwise perfect pro deck.

Just spotted this topic.

 

I can't believe you would recommend a hudson, as M16 said.

 

Where I live, the local skateshop sells Unions and Speed Demons, both of which are good (Speed Demon = the better of the two).

 

I would, however look out for a Southstar blank, they are good as far as I know.

You can 'trick' on anything if you're good enough.

I got me a Powell Mini-Logo for 35. It's f*cking brilliant. The nose and tail are EXACTLY the same, so leaving the board with a solid black sheet of grip means I could get the same usage out of both ends, since I can't really tell the difference between the nose and tail. Oh, and it's got pop like a mother-f*cker.

 

As for my other deck, I sold it to my friend.

 

 

Say, pyro, how good are you if you really plan on getting sponsored?

Lord.

so it's getting near winter, i figure i'll start skating a lot more then.

 

we're almost finished my friends mini. 4-foot, with a 5-foot extension on one side. we need to add the final half of the deck to the one side and it'll be complete.

 

pretty good for some kids with no knowledge of ramp building.

I hope you guys put the 2x4s are eight inch intervals. More than that and it'll sag easily, less than that, and it'll have cost you way too much.

we're using pallets to get height, and then in between the pallets were running 2x4's. in more time if his parents give him some money we're gonna run a cross pattern.

 

anyway, that side isn't the one we're gonna be all on. it's just there so we can do lip tricks and sh*t.

You won't get sponsored. No chance mate. I've been skating 4 years, I can do my fair share of stuff, but f*ck no, I'm nowhere near being sponsored. Also, don't skate to get sponsored, just do it for fun.. If you need to skat a sh*t board for a while whilst you save up for a new one, then just do so.

it's in a friends back yard and it can hold the rain. we'll deal with snow when it comes.

 

anyway, we were skating it and i severely murdered my hip today. and it was on rock to fakie's too.

 

pathetic.

 

oh, it went like, 50-50 across the one side, rock to fakie, tail stalls, and then i went from there. i came out skitchy on the 50-50's and everything else went downhill from there.

meh, it doesn't hurt that bad anymore. i was swamped with homework today so i'm gonna have to skate tomorrow.

 

i used to street skate but getting back into it after a summer and riding the ramps for the past couple of days street skating seems kind of boring.

 

maybe it's me.
