I will do everything within my power to not be outside if it's raining, so a rain set up? No.

Years ago homie in Eugene had an uncut deck as his rain board. I think it was one of those "shape your own" kits companies occasionally make, like Creature and Alien. He said it was sick and it was so huge it acted as a fender, if you know what I'm trying to say. It looked kinda crazy but seemed like a rad idea.

The new Powell Flight decks are getting a lot of positive feedback. Could be a potential rain deck?

I used to live in Portland so I pretty much dealt with rain every day, but a little trick I picked up was to clean your bearings and pack them with white lithium grease (you can buy a tube from an auto parts store for like $3) This will pretty much water proof your bearings and not allow them to rust up, as long as you give your wheels a spin before storing it. It's good for riding in the rain, but when it's dry it can make you slightly slower than normal since the grease is pretty thick.

My rain setup is my basement.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

I moved to Portland. Got any covered spots you can share? It fucking rains so much here.

Pretty much any parking garage (I liked Lloyd Center's) or Burnside, and there's a tiny indoor skatepark (and I mean tiny) on SE 20th, which is really just a mini bowl, mini ramp, and mini street section and it costs like 7 bucks a day/50 a month, worth it if you're desperate and can spare the cash. https://www.cwskate.com/

But yeah, the rain there is a real bummer.
