Skateboard upgrade (3)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I decided that I didn’t like the old deck. Having designed the perfect deck on paper, I was researching what materials I need to make my own custom deck when I stumbled across one that matched my design to a T for a modest £45 online. That was complete with weird trucks and wheels. I messed up removing those so TBH stepped in to drill out the bolts for me. Trucks went in the metal recycling and I’ll keep the wheels (they seem pretty good, the bearings are questionable but nothing a set of Bones REDS won’t fix).

The new deck (top of pic below) is 2″ shorter, has an elegant shape (your feet don’t get lost on half an acre of grip tape – there’s now pretty much only one place to put them), it has a 2″ longer wheelbase and no front overhang and a less aggressive kicktail. The perfect ‘cruiser’ for rolling down the pavement*. No good for doing tricks or going fast downhill.
* In case you’re wondering, the trucks are the ones that came with the original cheapo skateboard, 7.5″ axle and pretty good once I had upgraded the bushings. Trigger’s skateboard!
