It's been noted elsewhere that he rides 5.0s.

IDK, even if that is an 8" those look too wide to be 5.0s

5.2 highs most likely on an 8Ē, based on the axles
have no reason to assume gino would ride an 8.38
while cool-guying is a real phenomenon, studies show that 83% of all cool-guying incidents can be attributed to the cool-guyee being an awkward weirdo

Thanks for the responses, folks.

Anyone able to ID what size Ventures Gino is skating in this pic? That board came in 8.38" and 8" if that helps.

Incredibly relevant to my interests!
Iím not sure where I got this Ďinfoí, but I thought Gino always skated a 7.9 ish board, 5.2 loís, 52 mm ish wheels. Iím really not sure if thatís correct tho.
When Guy posted that, imo, phenomenal ig post, several years back, of Gino skating in super sunny California, it looked like he was skating a slightly wider than 8Ē fa shaped board, huge nose.
The clips for that Poets Bruin (the one some jerk very funnily called ĎGinoís my warí), it looked like he was skating 5.2 (could have been larger, I have the hardest time judging scale of trucks) HIís, with a forged plate.

Never seen him on 5.0s
If you go back to the greatest 411 segment of all times, ĎRoomiesí, Ginoís board looks wider, as does his trucks. Iím pretty sure heís also skating af1 mids. Fuck. 🥵. So good.
The angles that skate footage/photos are captured by, really makes it hard to tell how big setups are, imo. Iím guessing Gino is 5í10 ish, probably a 10 ish shoe, so imma guess that heís on about an 8Ē, 8Ē trucks.
I donít know what Iím talking about.
The yung goat yuto looks like he skated 5.2 loís as well.
Shit post sorry yaíll

I frown on forged plates but didn't mind this set up....my 5.6's are a little lower which I liked.  Gonna switch to cast and a krux down lo I think at some point.....when I figure things out.

I can't skate ice cold ventures. I feel like I'm going to die. I was trying to dork around get a little clip in downtown Salem and I ate shit twice in a row doing nothing.
When they freeze they just shimmy. Ace never stop turning in the winter. It's the only truck that works for me rn.

stock bushings? indy supersofts work well for me in the winter

Yeah I got the white Indys in now but it only buys me like 45 mins extra time before I'm tensor tight. I could put a bones up top but I'm trying really hard not to be buying extra plastic crap.

Plz stop killing each other

I hate one of my locals so the $15 151's are more appropriate for me I think.

@ok @Seventyfuhkinseven thank you. Fun fact: Gino is a size 11 and Guy is an 11.5. Big feet club. Have carried those facts with me since back in the day.

Going to go buy some 5.2 hollows, BRB.

I've only been skating for 2 years but after getting some 5.6s I actually feel like I've been progressing lately. Being off the board for 5-6 months due to ankle injuries hasn't helped and had to relearn some basics, but I feel a lot more consistent now on Ventures. I might be a lifer.
The turn is pretty funky but I can deal with it. I kinda like that it's forcing me to get used to carrying more speed to slash curbs.

So Iím kinda leaning into buying a better pair of ventures for Christmas, my current pair gotten to the axel and they have started to flake metal shards, I know I definitely want the hollows but whatís the difference between a titanium hanger and a regular forged one? I skate mostly ledges and stuff so I donít want to affect how my trucks grind but some excess weight cut could be good, is titanium gonna affect anything?

It's just the axle, not the hangar (forged plate + ti axle for the titanium or forged plate + hollow steel for the hollows). You shouldn't feel a difference in the grind.

No impact to the grind, more on the wheelbase and height with the cast (+3.25") and forged (+3.5", -1.5mm). If you can afford it go for the titanium, but the V-Hollows are a solid choice. Venture Titanium isn't as stupidly light as Tensor Maglight / Thunder Titanium, worth the $20 additional if you want to treat yourself.

Are the venture team lows 1mm higher than the regular venture lows? How about WB? IIRC, thunder team trucks bring in the WB ever so slightly compared to the regular raws.
