Anybody heard of Dregs? Just check thelongboardstore and they've got them listed, but I've never heard of the brand before.
[QUOTE=Arachnidus;33408488]Anybody heard of Dregs? Just check thelongboardstore and they've got them listed, but I've never heard of the brand before.[/QUOTE] Yes. I believe back in early 2000s they had a really unbeatable team. Very reputable brand, personally none of their boards appeal to me but yeah they are really reputable so don't worry about quality when you buy from them because they're legit.
I love longboarding. I have a special cruiser board that was signed by Bruce Walker. He is number one in the Longboarding Hall of Fame. It was an honor watching him skate.
[QUOTE=Pouch;33408778]I love longboarding. I have a special cruiser board that was signed by Bruce Walker. He is number one in the Longboarding Hall of Fame. It was an honor watching him skate.[/QUOTE] Never once heard of him.

Everyone who shreds has massive respect for cliff.
I've had stock bearings on my board and one of them got slightly bent outta shape. I ride regularly everyday and my friends were telling me I should be some reds or super reds. The super reds are slightly more expensive and I was wondering if the difference was worth the cost.

[QUOTE=FPKawaii;33409395]Cliff, and Adam Colton.[/QUOTE] So many names I could name. AdamC is a alright guy but not a legend in my opinion, yet.

Mini Logos, Magics, Speedy Lunatics, Shake Junt. So many to name.

[QUOTE=FPKawaii;33410307]I'm partial to Abec11 Biltins myself, makes life much easier.[/QUOTE] I was thinking about picking up a pair but I'd rather drop $10 on precision bearing spacers. Apparently they're the tits plus I need some flat washers. Are they actually fast? I feel like its a gimmick.
Me and some friends long board, check out our videos!

Here's a little video of me and my friends bailing. Some of the bails are pretty funny, if I do say so myself. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YieE0HjxWIE&list=UUdlAUhO81SmHPYY0Okpobjw&feature=plcp[/url]

Also I suggest using songs that are not in every trick video out there aka the second video. Work on your tucks, they're terrible and keep working on slides. Also keep having fun! Also to clarify I'm not ripping on you guys, you look like you had a lot of fun making it. Just trying to give constructive criticism.
They are a bit different to clean, but it's easy to get used to.

He's been longboarding for three years now and has always drank gallons of the Loaded and Orangatang kool-aid, and despite going through two dervishes, a dancer, and a tan tien, he still claims Loaded makes the best boards.
[QUOTE=Takkun10;33416808]Get a helmet. Yeah, we just don't have helmets for when we just started longboarding, last summer. We all have helmets and safety gear now, as you can see from a halfway into the video.

The concave on the tan tien sucks ass too, its nothing compared to other boards [editline]24th November 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Sean C;33409267]I've had stock bearings on my board and one of them got slightly bent outta shape.

The only reason my one was good value for money was because they accidentally sent me a dervish and a vanguard for the price of a dervish
everyone new to the longboard scene always thinks loaded is the best, but after 3 years ? wow
[QUOTE=jordy.Jay;33422882]everyone new to the longboard scene always thinks loaded is the best, but after 3 years ? wow[/QUOTE] I don't [I]mind[/I] my loaded, but knowing what I know now about longboarding I would definitely make a different choice next time.
If loaded still made the dancer I migh have considered checking one of those out, but any other board I won't go near.
yeah i wish i had been more informed about the kind of style i liked best
Loaded boards are a lot of fun if you like to go below 20mph. No good for slides but great decks for flip tricks minus the darvish. Dancer is a good deck but even then you should just get a longboardlarry adam colton dancer. Loaded brings a lot of people into the scene so I can't complain but I'd still never buy a deck from them.

I've had three brands over the past four years of longboarding; a Gravity pintail cruiser (no idea what it was called, but, it was glorious), a Never Summer Heist (v1, [B]amazing[/B] board...the Flex was veritably holy), and three Bustin decks (fanboy 'till the end)- a Spliff (31" cruiser), a Maestro 32"(trick deck/city thrasher), and the Robot 41" 9-ply (Freeride/downhill/slide/everything). I've ridden a few of my friends' Loaded decks (Dervishes), and they were fine, but none really "spoke" to me. Can't really explain it.

I've ridden a load of loaded decks but they're just not my style. I've ridden a s9, landyachtz, maxxspeed custom, and night custom. I've took single runs with a bunch of other decks but those 4 are the brands I've had the most time with.
Takkun, what do you think of this setup? [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11363412/Hero%20Deck.png[/img] For my birthday, my friends wanted to get me a gift. They said a longboard. Who am I to argue? So, to celebrate 2 straight years of usage on my Spliff and 4 years of longboarding in general, I'm retiring it and selling it off to one of my friends. And in its stead...is this. Using some fairly basic parts to save price, transitioning a few things over (bushings, mostly). And I'll probably switch it from the Abec7 bearings to Super Reds. I'm also going to look for other wheels, if anybody has some suggestions for a freeride setup.
Abec 11 flashbacks 81a. They're $33 at longboardskater and pretty much the best bang for you buck in freeride. Board looks like it'd be fun and I'd get some after market bushings to liven it up. VENOM specifically, CHEAT TO WIN.
Finally got toeside speed checks ! Yeoooow
Just wondering, is snowboarding at all similar to longboarding? I'm gonna start snowboarding this winter and start longboarding in the spring/summer (I already sort of skateboard). It doesn't matter if any of the skills aren't transferable, it would just be nice if they were haha.
