Kingpin nut just flush and those soft bushings I like that loose surfy feeling to my shit but seen some full real cunts with finger tightened kingpin nuts with just a little dab of superglue to hold

Most flip tricks are way easier with tighter trucks but it feels weird
listen to cosmic psychos

I was really into bowls and transition growing up so I’ve always used wobbly loose trucks.  On videos I noticed it looked like I was getting wheelbite with simple foot placements.  I started skating a little more street and shamelessly became the “wallie polar kid” for a while.  After that phase I started skating ledges and flatground a lot more because that’s all I could skate due to my job.  I ended up tightening my trucks a few turns, and I was shocked at how much easier it was to skate flatground.  I had heard the platitude  “loose trucks save lives” all my life so I was pretty flabbergasted when I realized I liked tighter feeling trucks.

Interesting that they still might not be that tight compared to some others.  I feel like I cannot even roll on some people's setups because the trucks are too tight, but I am more a bowl and transition skater too, even though my trucks are probably medium loose to some others I know.

A lot of those guys who skate street have considerably tighter trucks than mine, but there will always be some with trucks any which way who skate everything too.  It is not just bowl skaters = loose trucks, street skaters = tight trucks or anything like that.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Local skater, told him the super glue trick so his kingpin nut stops falling off

How is that garbage related to this thread in any way? Someone should focus his board for that manual before the bass clip

He has loose trucks and is a good skater. Your hate is silly and childish

In my experience I always thought it was the opposite. Loose for street and tight for bowl trolls.

I remember seeing Salman skating the loosest trucks in the 90's on a vert ramp.  Ollieing into Indy grabs...way to far out and you'd see his trucks just flapping in the air.  He hit the ramp so hard rather landing it or slamming.

I remember Matt Reason in the early 90s at a skatepark in Pittsburgh doing huge floating ollies on a mini ramp and his trucks would rattle and shake

Probably going to be a list of dudes who still ride loosey goosey on anything, and others who ride tight on anything.

Any of the vert dudes I know (and some the big bowl go super fast type of guys) have the tight trucks otherwise they would get speed wobbles and be out before they hit the first wall, but you need looser trucks to carve a bowl.

I guess though there are always going to be those who are different to others, but most of the top street skaters have the trucks at least medium if not more, eg looking at some guys who are more well known on the global stage with hard bones bushings cranked down like Tommy Fynn who had a pic of his setup the other day, but others like Chris Russell having almost no bushings and still skating fast and hard on big bowl / vert and whatever.

^^this. Being somewhat of a loose truck aficionado, over the years i've found myself riding many different tightness depending on things like the obvious new pair of trucks to coming back from an ankle sprain and on.

said so, loose trucks for life haha

That really is one of the best feelings you can get without doing a single trick.
