because 99.9999999% of people who skate rails were born after 2000 and have no clue what those other things are.

I have a broken rail I like throwing on as a tail skid from time to time. Iíve seen people on Instagram make copers out of pvc, I think itís all rad.

Bolt all that shit on your board and have a ball dude.  Invent something new and slap that on there too.

Who is judging you anyways?  Iíll have a talk with them if you want.

My first set up was a Maui and Sons complete with all those bells and whistles in 91. I got kooked into oblivion and took them of real quick. Ever since I have refrained from mounting any plastic gear to my bloards.
why come?

i just set up a cruiser/slappy board with rails, but a normal setup i couldn't fuck with them.

I do remember back in the day i was getting a muska silhouette deck and joked about putting rails on, i walked away from the counter for a min and the kid put them on. I was heated

Have you tried them out?

I put them on a board once and theyíre kinda sick.. you can slide longer, rad transition lipslides. Plus the noise your board makes on rougher ground made me smile itís like a tractor haha.
You eat a good amount of shit too while adjusting cos theyíre slick.

I eventually stopped using them mostly cos Iím lazy to unscrew / screw again but I wouldnít bash them, theyíre fun!
