Six balls are awesome. Been skating a set since July, still good as new. My only problem with (any) bearings is that pollen season has detrimental effects. I am talking a couple of weeks skate before they need maintenance.

idk what you guys do or what i don't, but ive been skating the same set of reds for 3 years. haven't cleaned them or anything, popped the shields immediately but they still roll forever.

Yeah well I don't even fuckin HAVE bearings

8.25 WKND board. I haven't been skating much and when I started again recently my 8.5 felt gigantic. I figured a good way to really start off skating again is with a new board and new wheels (Spit Classics 53mm that I already had). Post to the set-up thread coming soon.

Bought another grail - a Love and Rockets board by Powell, Lance Conklin pro model. Love and Rockets is a cultural milestone (for the most part), Jaime Hernandez is a genius and I own all 50 issues of the first run. Plus this graphic is obviously beautiful.




Have one more grail in sight, hopefully I hear back about it.

Theeves are the best trucks that nobody cares about. I absolutely love mine though, they're the most well-rounded truck in my experience and I've skated multiple sets of Thunders, Ventures, and a brief stint with Indy's.



As for shit I've bought recently, I just caved on BestBuy's early Black Friday sale and got one of those Death Lens kits for my iPhone for half off & a used handle for half price on eBay too.

Is that one of those silica gel packs on the trucks? Do they dry out and get brittle without that thing?

The opposite, the silica is absorbing all the moisture to prevent the trucks from swelling and buckling and getting all soggy.

So Zumiez gives you the full return in person on items that have the extra 50% off online?

I never knew about that graphic. Javier Hernandez's LOCAS is a big part of my emotional education and one of my favorite novels. I'll always be infatuated with Margarita ( & Esperanza & Teresa & Isabel & ... )

edit: those three punk dudes in the middle look odd.

Haha, this graphic wasn't actually drawn by Jaime! It was drawn by Devin St. Clair aka John Keester. That might be why they look different. Also Cosme, I love your work too man.

not always unfortunately...i went in again trying to cash in on the busenitz pure boosts that i had stared at for weeks and was hoping to get $129.99 back but the manager who helped me knew that they were extra 50% off. plan foiled. best bet is to hope for some younger employee who has no fucking clue what they're doing (edit: they all don't know what they're doing, so i'd say it's a 50/50 shot if it works). but i turned that $88 into 149 hollow's, CTAS, dickies, adidas for my womanlady, and a bunch of other shit that I clearly don't need.

i have a pair of etnies jameson HT's that are too small on me that gotta go back too, so I'll be trying again no doubt.
