Dude the 22's are kinda insane. Hella turny to start with plus they're really narrow and this thing has like a 13.25 wb. Whatever you put them on they'll be a blast to just ride with a shit eating grin

I do not mean this in any way as an insult, but that is the precise setup I imagine from a Berate the Birds/Gifted Hater Patreon subscriber.

Lol. Eldee is definitely a human. Hes like a raider on horse back whos kinda scared to do battle. Somehow he closes his eyes and swings his sword wildly and wakes up in a pile of dead orcs.

Tom K is also a big movie nerd so I'd guess an "Escape from LA" reference, which MGS / Hideo Kojima borrowed heavily from.

Similar story for me. Welcome back and keep the momentum going. Once you get back into the groove of things, it becomes a little easier imo.

How do you like those 161s @Dong Hanglo  ?
they're killer! I was fine with the idea of riding Indy 169s or Ace 55s for my whole life. Its really cool that other brands have a wide option as of the last few years. Thunders are really good trucks.

Hahaaaa thanks to @moonordie i just ordered it since it was on sale for like 65.....so basically i ordered my ace 22s for my zinger but i might have to try them out on the beach bum- tbh can't wait for it after your little review up there!

round here everybody has those big ass cruiser boards with some fucking longboard wheels on or some 60mm wheels but i really dig a light/ smaller cruiser more personally. When you can just bring it and it is not a heavy fucking thing of a board to carry around!

So big thanks to you guys!  :-*

Hello. Im new here. Im a 35 year old mid-life crisis dad-boomer. Its been about 20 years and 100 pounds since I last skated.
My daughter got a lil board for her birthday and then I found a shop complete with an Indy upgrade at the thrift store. It had a lot of issues, one being it was way small and bendy. But Ive gone and done my first real complete in as many years.
Im gonna break something in 3-2-1








Old one is:
Shop deck 8
Shop wheels
Shop grip
Spit cheapshots
Indy Leo Romero Hollow Low

New one is:
Creature 8.6 Russell VX Horseman
Spitfire F4 Oski Radial 57mm
Indy 159 Hawk
Bronson G2
Mob grip

Super proud of my grip job. First try.
Will report back in when I fall.

Is homie a Metal Gear Fan??

I'm a huge metal gear fanboy, hence my name haha. I saw this board and thought the same... I do know metal gear's solid snake was inspired by Pliskin or whoever from Escape from New York. I think Tom K also mentioned he watches movies or shows to find skate spots.. I remember hearing that and I'm pretty sure it was him.

Not a Tom K fan, but may have to cop that deck because nerd reasons.
Let us all take a moment of silence for all our brothers and sisters who are dealing with truck madness. We have reached page 100 and shown the world that its not easy, but were strong as one.

I'm around your age as well, and its getting harder and harder to find board time and energy especially with a job... and I say that without having any kids. Welcome back to the board bro

Man, that relationship sounds horrible. I get that a partner wants to spend time with you, but if it's like that, it's better to leave for your own well being.

I am usually not a fan of pink tops but that looks awesome here. I like that minimal side stripe a lot. Is that heel or toe side for you?

Anyway, welcome back and enjoy your setup. :)

Thanks man! Ive been super enjoying just learning to just push around, not mongo. Practice ollies and fs and bs kickturns.
Yeah, two kids and a full time teaching job leaves little time for actual skateboarding or guitar playing or whatever.

thanks man, I'm not crazy about the pink stain either but that was the only 9. so I did that strip because, for me at least, it can be difficult to get a 9 properly lined up with grip...i feel like sheets of grip might have gotten a little more narrower? i just took the strips from my heel side and made that little line on the toe side.
