something is wrong here, it's been almost two weeks and my shit isn't here.
[QUOTE=hula whoop;35587337]decided to go with the supermodel instead of the feast or famine. Earthwing Drop supermodel 40" Abec 11 Flashbacks 81a 70mm Caliber 50 10" Mini Logo bearings and spacers. Switchback didn't have indy 210s in stock (they never had them when I checked in the past either) so I got the Calibers instead. The order hasn't been processed yet either (I'm assuming since it's a Sunday) so I can probably change things if you guys think I should.[/QUOTE] Just top mount the calibers and you should be alright.
Finished cutting and almost finished sanding my first longboard with concave. Haven't drilled my bolt holes because my trucks are not wide enough. [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/IMG_20120415_1906182.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/IMG_20120415_1905112.jpg[/IMG]

9 days for shipping uggghhhhh hopefully the weather will have warmed up by then though.
Moving to a more ''hilly'' place so to describe it in Sweden. Looking forward to it!
It arrived! I'm off to go cruise around campus. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Dgu9H.png[/img]
I've been trying standies non stop for the past week and i can't seem to get them down. I carve into the slide with all of my weight on my front foot then try to push out with my back while turning my shoulders and making a pose like i'm taking a dump, do you have any tips?

Breaking traction? Falling? If you can't break traction you need to commit your hips into it. Also make sure your wheels don't have a mold release on them still as in just spankin new and are still grippy as fuck.

Thinking about buying the landyatchz switchblade, looks pretty bad ass. Also going to maybe buy the orangatang inheat wheels.

Any suggestions for a decent dancer with kicks, its really hard finding something decent for a good price here in the UK.

Almost every small builder makes a dancer because few big companies do, look around.

I picked up its companion deck, the EQ, and had the chance to ride it. This video just proves what skilled riders can do with a good deck.
The hype for RAD wheels is ridiculous, but justified it seems. Gotta get a set. Gotta go fast.

For that reason, I've got my next deck narrowed down to a Bustin Boombox, Nelson Tempest and Landy Tomahawk. How are the kicks on the Boombox? They seem almost nonexistent, as do the Tomahawk's. EDIT: As you guys can tell, I'm very indecisive and can't impulse buy haha.

woooooo my boards in Quebec! Should be here some time next week.
I decided that, since I love top mounts infinitely more than drop-throughs, that I would top mount my Eel. This is the best decision of my life.

Toeside standups are retardedly hard, so are no-complys, and kickflips longboarding is hard.
