Other than cruisers, what would your three lifetime set-ups be? Be as specific as you want.

I feel like I'm pretty close to figuring this out for myself, my current quiver is very comfortable.

1. A "confidence/daily skate/trying new things" set up - 53 or 54mm 101s, thunder 149s, and an 8.5 deck with a longish wheelbase

2. A crust/tranny/weird set up - 56mms in a softer duro (92 to 98), indy 159s, a 8.6 or wider shaped deck

3. A tech/fuck around/flicky set up - 52mm 99s, aces, and 8.0 deck

1st would be the lamest setup of all time, second would be the most expensive setup that still is functional, and the third would be a hovering cruiser board

  • We're just 2 lo(b)s(t)ers sitting behind a screen
1. whatever my everyday setup is
2. that old h-street/ Martin Luther king graphic board I have sitting under my bed at my parents place back in Aus
3. an old setup that you can ride in the rain
