im riding these atm



and theyre propper!

but to answer your question i ride my wheels until theyre like 30mm or if they crack as i tend to ride hard wheels on all surfaces and the rougher spots can fuck up wheels when going at speed but they usually last me a good while, and overall it goes like this...

Deck: 2 -3 months if im lucky
Trucks: never "had" to buy new trucks, i only get new ones when my old ones feel weird
Wheels: 4 -5 months

I'll skate the wheels until my skateboard sounds like a broke motorboat , its probably the last thing I'm willing to buy.

i'm not trying to be a dick but how old are you?  and do you have a job? 

i only ask because you're always shitting on people for not skating but i think you fail to realize is that a lot of dudes on here have jobs and other real life obligations that keeps them from it. 
its great that you're still young, live at home and have all the time in the world but thats not the case for everyone else.

I realize people have jobs, but I notice you clowns try to shit on me, and say I'm not a real skateboarder, when I'm out there everyday skateboarding. I thought going skateboarding was what skateboarding is about.

I'm married, have a full-time job & I skate about 5 out of 7 days in the week. During the winter that often means skating flatground in a hallway somewhere, but... whatever it takes, right?

I totally get that we all get older & aren't as motivated as we used to be, but let's be real: it ain't the job that keeps you from skating. If anything, it's having kids that does it (one of many reasons why we never had any...) But if you can find time to slump in front of the tube like a zombie for an hour a day, you can find time to skate...

Think of this as less me being a dick, and more trying to inspire you...;)

I skate 5 out of 6 days in the week, fag.
I actually did hit another skater in the face with my shoe once at a demo doing a shoes fly off kickflip but he was cool with it.
