I wish there were more diverse longboards where I was. Everybody here is like lolsector9 the best.
so my gloves came and i started busting out some hands down toeside 180's. what's the easiest way to switch back to regular stance from switch? i don't know how to ride switch yet.
Started going out and just cruising, since I just got my board. I really like the grease shark though, and my dog likes to chase it.

I actually had a dream about my longboard today. Was going down steep hills and doing mad cool shit. Then I woke up and changed my pants.

Got some deep scars from my friend sliding, but I'll put the first coat of stain on it tomorrow or this weekend, then whenever my package arrives, I'll put the grip-tape on and finish up.

There is a guy in my lab class that has the same deck as tesla but he made his a drop through and has ~80 mm wheels. Looks like a fucking tank when it rolls.

Arbor boards are the way to go
i've always wondered why any threads on FP to do with this, skateboarding or bmx and stuff always have dumb as the predominant rating on the OP.

I prefer skateboarding over longboards, but you can't really compare 'em.

Need some good freeride/cruising wheels and trucks. Any ideas?
alright, I'm having this problem with my wheels and bearings (I'm assuming) I don't know anything really about how the bearings and innards work, but please bare with me. So when I'm riding, I constantly hear this rattling type of noise in the front left wheel. But when i lift off and bank right while turning, the rattling stops. So It only rattles when there's pressure on it I guess. Any suggestions of what this might be and how to fix it? I can record a video if need be.
So is longboarding just like the commuting verison of skateboarding? Seems like a fun way to get around. People on my campus love them.

Plus you can go fast and break traction. Watch the video in the original post.

so apparently my neighbor saw an old dude stalk my friend and i while we were longboarding ¯\(ツ)/¯
It seems I will need to wait until spring to give my board any stain, so I'm just going to smooth it out and poly' it. I may do something if I can come up with a good idea. I only have black satin spray paint, painters' tape, and polyurethane. What should I do?

[QUOTE=Takkun10;34533218]Go buy a really nice wood finish and make that shit fancy.[/QUOTE] I already have some. That's what I was going to do, but it won't be warm enough to finish the deck with it until spring, and there's no way in hell I'm waiting until spring to ride again. Also the scratches in the bottom are too deep to sand out, and will stick out like a sore thumb under the stain.
