First deluxe board ever. I'm looking forward to it, after I finished with my habitat.

Can't deny the dude's art is awesome though. I'm still a little bummed about the whole Johan Stuckey/Huf Roger scenario.

What is this scenario you're speaking of- just out of curiosity?

Also, myself, a couple of my friends and our moms took a tour of his workspace in his house when we were in middle school. I guess my friend's mom knew him because she's also an artist, and we all got to observe the seemingly thousands of figurines that occupied his bookshelves and every other available surface, and the stacks of paintings leaning against everything. He's a super friendly dude though, always seems to be giving out stickers he keeps in his pockets to anybody at the skate park who strikes up a conversation with him, and his art is great!

Huf wanted him on a "real" company or something like that an dnow he's on habitat flow. That sieben story is great, did you know about his involvement in skating at that time?

Wizards of Radical had just come out, and I was super into Bueno at the time. I'm pretty sure I wore one of his Volcom shirts multiple times throughout every week.
I'm skating a shop board with his art on it right now actually...

That's weird because Nate Broussard is on Huf and he skates for Roger.

I think its because they didn't have enough boards to send Johan or something and Huf told him to find a "real board sponsor" or something like that.

Well, I absolutely love low-pros. I am set for good two months with these!

I need bigger trucks, these stage 9s are getting annoying.

I haven't bought a whole setup in a long time and I remember why. It sucks getting use to new trucks but other than that...

Habitat - 8.13(I think)
Venture lows 8 inch
Spitfire 51mm
I like my board to feel wide and low to the ground.

i know dog i bought em all at different times, with the board being the most recent. not gonna lie i made sure i had the wheel graphics were facing inside lmao. like i said i mostly just care about the functionality when buying everything so i didnt even realize i made this clusterfuck of bright colors until i put em all together. it still skates amazing tho. P2's are the shit forreal they definitely retain their stiffness much longer than regular wooden decks.  before i put the trucks on i stood on a scale with my old deck & the p2. something like 143.4 with the old deck (powell) and 141.3 with the p2, so there is a noticable difference with deck weight. add the hollowlights and as a complete its very very light. flips like a charm
