Bought a Creature deck at my shitty local named Skate Shack but they also sell bikes and itís where they mostly profit. Where I live thereís only one local and all their skate products are NHS.

Anyways, bought a Creature 8.2 x 31.9 deck from them and the concave is too steep and the wheelbase is too long for my Thunder 149s. The setup feels so weird and I canít even land most of my tricks right. One of the worst setups Iíve ridden so far. Even paid $96 for it since there is literally no other way to buy a deck here in Qatar besides online.

I fucking regret buying anything NHS related too. Fuck dem racists

That is worrying for me to hear. I'm setting up a Santa Cruz P2 (lightly used) next and I'm thinking of what trucks to pair them with. Part of me says stick with Venture 5.6 V-Hollow with a cast baesplate, the other part says ride them with Thunder Titaniums but I'm not sure about the lack of baseplate action.
iirc thunder titaniums push the wb out as much as venture forged plates

After extensive research it goes something like
Thunder Titanium - +3.15"
Venture Cast - +3.25"

(Actually it was just a revisit here: https://www.slapmagazine.com/index.php?topic=108580.150, same conversation between you and I LOL)
Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

I regretted buying a 5boro deck. Was super steep, but maybe I was too much of a sook. But something a little more mellow better for my older legs I think

You guys have heard of Bronson Bearings, right?

Seriously though, bought a set, they suck. They're the g2s, and the shields are faulty I think. I've had several of the shields get wedged into the bearings to stop rolling. I've also had a couple of the bearings just crap out. Even thinking of straying from Bones was a huge mistake.

got some lakai protos on super sale but they irritate my Achilles. So I ordered some supra penny's and they were bigger than I expected and they are sold out a half size down so I can't even switch em up. Hopefully the proper cinexs in the mail will do the trick.

Protos gave me the worst heel/achilles blisters ever, but once broken in I loved em. Would be a huge improvement if they softened up that heel-lock hook.

I was surprised by how much I liked the protos. Went half size up, coulda gone full size up.

I bought some of the FP insoles with the arch support in them, skated in them twice and gave them away.  It would take about 30 minutes of warming up before they started to feel comfortable.  Not for me.  Gave them to my brother and he loves them.

The last pair of Shake Junt Triple OGs i had were surprisingly good. That was 2 or 3 years ago. For theyíre worth theyíre good.
