I don’t, but I have to ask, what hardware is that? Special tool? Never seen it before

Titanium tri-wing aerospace close tolerance NAS bolts. They were dirt cheap off eBay, but the seller no longer ships them.

I'm surprised you don't see more NYC skate rats dressing like Skate More Dill these day, loose cut chino high waters, high socks, mullet. Caveman over a smoky trash can in NYC dressed like that, tag Dill, that could be your ticket onto FA
[close]

This surprises you? Not exactly a look most people could pull off, or would even want to try for that matter.

Would be pretty funny to see such a specific and obvious ripoff though.

The guys are all like "this is just what I'm into" while wearing silver shoes and capris with either giant hair or shaved heads.

Don't Americans all grow up playing baseball? Isn't the long socks thing kinda normal? Gotta admit I've done the shorts with long socks multiple times thruout my life altho usually more on the baca than dill end of the spectrum. Tall guy problems.

Also the worst skate DVD ever is that fucking ice cream video. It's not even close.  Most disappointing I'd say probably the DC video( love aves part, wenning is good, skip all the rest) or pretty sweet (we waited, expectations were thru the roof, it delivered but everyone realised they don't actually give a shit about this type of thing anymore)

Anyone else remembers that in 2009 it was supposed to be the first full HD skate video? it only took them 3 years more  ;D

I back pretty sweet as the Worst ever, in difference with some other terrible videos mencioned already, in this one there's no parts I go back to see, none

hasnt Blondey been rockin the Dill Skate More kit for sometime now?? minus the hair and silver shoes.

And how the hell is The DC video the most dissapointing?

It actually does surprise me, not only would it be pretty functional pants wise, I think it would look sick. Undershirt/tanktop, half length pants, and high socks, as simple as it gets really. Probably great for skating. I think kids today have moved onto wild baggy / bigger clothes in general though which is why you don't see some kid rocking that.

Dill looks sick in that era because he's wearing actual pants cut off and just looks rugged, as opposed to Baca who just wears giant Dickies and huge t-shirts, not that he doesn't rock it, but it's not the same look. It's like Southern California motorcycle club style. Still I'm into it. And Blondey is moreso wearing just shorts and extra high socks with more sock exposure. Looks more like a soccer player than anything, which I guess is fitting considering he is on Adidas and that atrocious shoe they just gave him looks like a borderline soccer shoe I guess.

I don’t think we talk enough about Sammy baca transitioning from hesher cosplaying as Blanca from
Street fighter to straight Loc’d out gangster…

Just bumping this because I saw an old video with someone wearing a t-shirt from this absolutely terrible brand.

If you’re interested in Yacht Clubs what about the Bored Ape Yacht Club?

@Frank and Fred  I was trying to spin a 360. I've done a few, but often stall, then put too much weight on the backfoot trying to bring it around, as in this case. Felt pretty much  like blocking on a fs powerslide, I was pretty high on the face of the wave and came down hard.

I feel like my quiver has gotten a bit more refined as of late. Still trying to escape the madness and consolidate to one or two boards. Was fun to try a shitload of different stuff out in the 8 months since I started skating again though.

Shoes & Gear / Re: POLARIZER THREAD (60s/70s style boards)

Went ahead and re-set up the PS Stix deck (red wheels), since the wheelbite was legit on the BBS (green wheels).

Put my JOGGER Sure Grip roller skate trucks on the BBS, since the truck has about 3/8" more axle height than the
ACS trucks. Switched over the Powerdyne 82A bottom barrels on all trucks, keeping the 78A top barrels.

The BBS now doesn't wheel bite on frontside turns, but feels completely different than the OG deck. I think I prefer
the OG, it's lower to the ground and can turn super sharp in a pinch.

But my foot does like the flat of the BBS, it's easier on the arches for sure.

Ultimately, I think I like the PS Stix better. It's more unique and once you get accustomed to the convex, it feels much more
surfy.

I used to give so many friends shit for being so meticulous about their setups and which woodshops their decks came from, and now I understand.

I've never ridden a PS polarizer, but i am in love with the shape/flex/feel of my BBS. I dont think i would like a more exaggerated shape but who knows? I'm quite happy with my purchase however. I cant decide whether you throw some stickers on the bottom and have my lady use her art skills and paint pens on the grip, or just to leave it all clean and blank. I gripped the whole top with jessup, no cutouts or bolt holes since i used wood screws.
i feel like a basic grip job is breaking some unspoken polarizer rule!
