I'm honestly shocked that someone skated a set of tensors long enough to grind them to the axle.

The indy's took 4 months to hit and was stoked being my first pair to hit axel. Got the black Tensors as a gift and as Tensors are they refused to turn so my goal was to get them to axel as quick as i could (6 weeks) to justify buying the 159's im on now.
That's gnarly. Were you skating a pool/ bowl with tensors?
was that switch ollie in a turban at 1:18 ?.....trend watch

Price did a short article on a PHX local grinding down to the axle in 3 and a half hours.

It is from an 2010 or 2011 issue of The Skatebord Mag

I used to be subbed to Skateboarder (never subbed to TSM) and I swear I saw the same thing in Skateboarder.


Some guy just rode a bowl/pool and kept doing frontside grinds and like 4 hours later he had ground down to the axle.

Is this the same thing you're talking about?

Yea.

I don't which came first this or the Hewitt thing, but yea, just tons of front-side grinds.

What's it like to skate the axle? Are grinds more smooth? Can you lock in like a mother fucker?

Such a sick thread. Only did it once and that was some gullwing super pro III's back in the late 80's.

Would love to get down to the axle on some indy's but just don't skate enough at the ripe age of 42. I've broken a lot of trucks the past several years though and I suppose that doesn't help to get to the axle due to constant replacement.

Hey Slap! new here, loving this thread. Anyway, I was happy today that after one year and a month of work I eventually reached this point :

Also really glad that it happened just at the end of the session, and on a slow flatground trick...
First time breaking a truck also, except for a few kingpins and maybe cracking a couple baseplates back in the day.

The front truck is still holding despite the aluminium being cracked all around the axle at the k-grind groove:

Time to set up a new pair I guess!
