Man, I haven't skated in years.

 

But you brought up some of my favorite vids from my time,

 

 

Any Plan B video or any H-Street video you can possibly get your hands on

 

Hocus Pocus from H Street without a doubt. Danny Way is freaking young in that vid.

 

Plan B "questionable". Can't tell you how many times I used to watch that before going to school.

Start again. f*ck growing older and other excuses, just do it.

 

Yeah, those videos are f*cking quality. I've only ever managed to see Hocus Pocus once though unfortunately and have never been able to get my hands on a copy.. sad.gif Any chance you'd be able to help?

 

Ah God, I need to give these yet another watch actually..

 

Also, TD, Etnies are crap mate.. Get something nice and not trendy. All Etnies are the same for God sake.

 

I might go for a wee skate if the wind dies down actually, my legs are feeling the urge to feed the habit. On my own though sad.gif

I just got new DC's but i've not been skating much cause we used to have a bunch of people always at the miniramp near my house but as of late they havn't been hanging around and its not as fun being on your own or with a few friends. We used to have 10 of us on a miniramp it was class.

Technical Difficulty

I just got some new trucks & do not plan on using my old ones.

 

If anybody would like to make an offer to me, please email me. Or, if you have AOL/MSN, let me know so we could talk easier.

 

They are Phantom 2 trucks. I just bought Ventures.

 

So yes. If anybody would like to make a trade, then let me know smile.gif

Once you go venture, you'll never go back. It's what happened to me. I've had the same ventures for years now.

Say what? Compared to independents (my previous ones that are serving as door handles now) they're quite light, and they're the best prize for it's quality.

Indy's are sh*te nowadays, that's not a surprise. Can't beat a pair of Tensor/Destructo/Grindking.

Grind king? Those things are heavier then sh*t. Couldn't complain about destucto (ventures are lighter), and tensor (ventures are lighter).

You must be getting some dodgy dealings blink.gif

 

Grindking are aluminium, they're the lightest trucks out there. Venture are heavier than both Destructo and Tensor combined, almost literally. I'm not just speaking from memory, either, I have a set of Ventures and an old set of Tensors in my skate-stuff-box, and I even went and compared..

I guess you are right I haven't touched a pair of grind kings in about 5 years. Destuctos in probably a year or so, and as for the tensors, I guess I kinda exaggerated cause my bro has a pair and they are about the same as my ventures. But as for ventures being heavy. I checked and the ventures I use are the superlights, so I don't know if that's different from what you are thinking, but they are pretty light.

 

I guess we could both agree that indys are overrated. That is if you agree with that. I snapped an independent kingpin the second week of owning the trucks.

Well Grindkings are seemingly the same, they're great trucks. I've never actually owned a pair, but a few mates have them and I had them for a while whilst others were broken. Destructo are great, and I love Tensors.. I have one major gripe with Tensors though, the kingpin has a high profile and sticks above the axle which can mess up grinding. As for your Ventures, well, I'm sure they're a better company nowadays and now I think about it I did skate a board with the ones you have and they seemed decent to be honest, aye.

 

Indy's aren't over-rated I don't really think, they were a massive and pioneering company in the 80s and early 90s, but other companies have flown past them in recent years and their legendary status just doesn't cut it any more. You broke the kingpin? Haha, Royal trucks are the worst for that, I don't know why anybody even buys them tounge.gif

ah, something that i can talk about and relate to besides GTA... i have Grind Kings. i love them. the good part about them is, they have allen kingpins, so they wont catch the rail like others. i notice some other companies are coming out with rounded of allen pins too. i might take a run on those, if i get money. i won't lie. i can barely ollie. i've made a 5 foot pitched rail...pitched is where it goes flat, then angles down a bit, then flattens back out. but it's a very small incline.

 

My Setup

-----------

Element Deck

MOB Grip

Shorty's Hardware

GK Trucks

Spitfire Wheels

Black Bones Bearings

Destructo Risers...idk why tounge.gif

Tis' a sad day my friends. After not skating for 5 months, I have lost everything. All I can do now are shuvit tricks. I use to be good as f*ck. Before I stopped skating, I was starting to stick switch treys. Now I can barely land a kickflip. My heelflips aren't that bad. But geez... I am pissed. I'll probably get everything back in a couple weeks. Anyway, I'm so glad it's summer....and they just opened this awesome indoor park. So I'm somewhat happy.

 

Btw....GK's are the f*ckin beez-kneez.

I can't do anything switch, at all. I can barely roll switch.. Only on my own skateboard though. Whatever way I stand on it regularly, it must make the trucks f*cked for the opposite stance, it's f*cking annoying. I can stand on other peoples' boards grand, but mine just feels f*cked standing switchstance. It seriously hinders my progression sad.gif

 

I can do nollie full cabs both ways though tounge.gif

I've been skating for about 2 years now. I'm not very good, though. I haven't been able to even ollie yet. I think my main problem is that I can't pop the board up in the air. Maybe, I'm not kicking down hard enough. Whatever...

 

And I'm a huge fan of the THPS/THUG games. THSP1 was really my first exposure to skateboarding and the reason I started in the first place. Maybe when day I'll be good enough to get sponsored...
