Aye it's always a good one when bobby comes down as the more casual skaters like myself take a backseat n just sit n watch n get drunk.

Always welcome down mark when covids fucked off n the shed is open accepting skaters again (his wife's put the thumb down a bit on it being weekly). Sure we'd know someone in mutual and even if not it's a welcoming place for all skaters.

edit: fuck supreme for how long they take to deliver trucks, last part of new crusing set up.

Stumbled upon this on YouTube. This is the 02 Bristo jam I was taking about.

That’s me doing the board slide shuv it out at about 57 seconds in which is the trick that was in Sidewalk. (also me at about 48 seconds in and 2.23 ish). I’ve never seen the video before so it’s a bit mad watching it. Laughing out loud

@Dreep if I remember rightly that’s Bobby Bailey at 1.35 through to about 1.43.

Random, but has anyone had a custom deck printed before, if so, where from?

My lad has asked for a skateboard for his 6th birthday.

I want to get him something mid range in case he isn’t into it.

I don’t really know much about boards so would appreciate some advice/recommendations if anyone can help.

Cheers

Would second the above. That’d be fine for a young beginner but decent enough to be worth the cash. Don’t go for something really cheap. It’ll be so crap (bearings/wheels) that it won’t even roll properly and that alone will probably kill any enjoyment he’ll get out of things.

Supreme indy trucks,58mm ricta softs, bones ceremics £20 grip, add deck, etc, you'd be surprised. Like I said I'm sure it was worth around that

worryingly (for my wallet) it isn't too far off - 280 is certainly within realistic boundaries, through 350 may be pushing it a little

Many Yankee brand decks are 70 quid
70 quid - Indy/ace trucks
50 quid - Spitfire wheels
70 quid - bones ceramic bearings
assorted extras 20 quid

I'm a full formula 4 convert now, so much better. Cheaped out on wheels over the years and there's no going back now. Used to always get Death or something similar but gotta be Spitfire now.

Never touched Bones Swiss always just got a pack of Reds with new wheels but it's probs worth the extra cash.

Been on Thunders now for years but tempted by Ace to be fair, might get a 9" ChicoStix and get some big Aces for moshing about on.

Sure my Swiss ceramics were 129.
Supremes are £80 I'm sure
Ricta Cores were £45
Grip £20
Deck was £60 I think.
4 x 1/4 risers - £16
Bolts etc - £10

I can try price it out after surgery tomorrow. Not sure which sites I used but will have saved.

Although alfi you can say "I was wrong to question you, a god" and we good.
