I need to find the closest shop possible that stocks Tektons and 85mm Speed Vents.
[QUOTE=teslacoil;34732869]I need to find the closest shop possible that stocks Tektons and 85mm Speed Vents.[/QUOTE] location?
[QUOTE=Takkun10;34732925]location?[/QUOTE] Northern Virginia. Dumfries if there's any that close. I've tried ecboardco, but their online shop doesn't stock any longboard components, and most others don't have online shops, or even stock anything good. I guess I'll have to order all the way from Cali again. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] Daddiesboardshop.com in Oregon stocks them really cheap, but it's not much closer. Nevermind, they're even more expensive, they sell wheels in sets of 2 for some reason. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] Screw it, I'm just going to order from TLBS again.

I probably won't be coming to DC this month, unless my dad has an open schedule and wants to go do something (unlikely). LongboardSkater doesn't have Tekton bearings or Seismic wheels. [editline]16th February 2012[/editline] Actually, next saturday I will be home, I might be able to go. Wait a minute... I have a full-face and gloves, and my wheels and bearings should be here by next friday and I'm 18, could I register to race?

Plus you need leathers which is expensive as fuck
Gonna buy a longboard this summer, most likely this: [url]http://www.bclongboards.dreamhosters.com/boards/moray/[/url] Mainly for cruising around and stuff, nothing too major
[QUOTE=Takkun10;34751130]Plus you need leathers which is expensive as fuck[/QUOTE] It sucks being late to the game. After the session in DC saturday, can other people bomb the hill? Also, what the hell is Grab a Grom?
[QUOTE=teslacoil;34751568]It sucks being late to the game. After the session in DC saturday, can other people bomb the hill? Also, what the hell is Grab a Grom?[/QUOTE] Yeah after the race its going to be a picnic, everyone can skate all day and just have fun. I have no idea what grab a grom is but we are not groms.
isn't a Grom another word for a child? Are we going to be grabbing children? I don't want to do this anymore.
[QUOTE=Adelle Zhu;34758392]isn't a Grom another word for a child? Are we going to be grabbing children? I don't want to do this anymore.[/QUOTE] Grom is skaters under 16
It'll probably be easier for me to go now that I can use "but, family picnic!" as an excuse.
This shit is fucking insanity. Way to much of a pussy to actually ever try it
[QUOTE=Adius Shadow;34758438]This shit is fucking insanity. Way to much of a pussy to actually ever try it[/QUOTE] Don't let that stop you, I was like that once, then I was given a rip-stick, then a flowboard (which sucked big-time), then I got my Evo. There's no going back now.
[QUOTE=Adius Shadow;34758438]This shit is fucking insanity. Way to much of a pussy to actually ever try it[/QUOTE] Whats insane? Grab a grom?
I still don't understand the grabbing of teenagers

[QUOTE=Kopimi;34759958]do fish boards count as longboards even though theyre extremely short because i dont know what class they fall into otherwise[/QUOTE] Google Images is showing what I would call a surf-board.

[QUOTE=Takkun10;34761965][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuEzLr6KPWQ[/media][/QUOTE] Reminds me of my friend that I used to longboard with, except he probably doesn't know what half of what they're saying.

[QUOTE=Kopimi;34764794]well google images is full of SHIT [img]http://tailtap.com/images/deck_gs_warptail2.jpg[/img][/QUOTE] Looks like a longboard to me.
its very small you cant tell because of a photo but its very small
[QUOTE=Kopimi;34766208]its very small you cant tell because of a photo but its very small[/QUOTE] How wide are the trucks? 130mm? It doesn't look [i]that[/i] small.
who cares they're all skateboards, no matter how long your deck is, its still a skateboard. Just go ride it and stop caring about names.
i was at Valley Forge National Park yesterday for non-longboarding related reasons. shit was so cash. once i get my license i'm going to try to go back out there.
After showing my dad the videos in this thread and talking about bombing hills and sliding, he said we'll start looking for good hills and he said he might get a longboard.
