Just took my inaugural spin on my Polarizer. Went with the complete kit from Heated Wheel and I'm super happy how it came out. The water color graphic looks really nice.

It's totally freaky just pumping around on such a small board. There's a little alley behind my apartment with some mini banks and bollards to slalom through, had a good ol time.

Thatís one fly rig my G, sick!!!

I'm getting confused by the different ways people measure the WB on polarizers, do you mind telling me the WB on the fiber rider measured in the traditional way? I'm thinking about making one out of an old snowboard.

I donít know the reasoning but WB is measured axel to axel on polarizers.

This has got to be an ultimate troll.

It's literally called a cork TOP.

Maybe I'm giving Mr Hill too much credit here, but this totally seems like one of those intentionally wrong things a content creator would do to get engagement on a post.

a couple people nicely mentioned that he may be riding it upside down, but no one has had the balls to tell him how actually stupid he is and how embarrassed he should be

"JH'd algo" too good

Man I watch so much Youtube and all kinds of people there. Skaters, Halo and Nintendo gamers, Yoga and health people. But I can't get into this John Hill dude for some reason. Some weird vibes and it all feels like fake positivity. Sorry John, you might be really cool for all I know but it just isn't for me.

Seems like he wanted to have it set up as a concave so he could flip it, ride off curbs, etc.  Maybe Iím wrong but seems like Hill has some reach on YouTube so it could be a positive thing for THWís sales, potentially.  I donít hate it.  Basically free advertising.

He mentions this thread but doesnít specifically say slap

He also mention the board has negative concave and can/should be ridden upside down but proceeds to set it up wrong

He quotes someoneís post or blog regarding the gate keeping of polarizers, how itís not supposed to be something easily accessible and more of a niche subculture of skating.

Hes basically johnsplaining polarizers to his You Tube fans so at worst polarizers arenít cool anymore (impossible) and at best, Neil will get some sales out of the whole ordeal

I have a polarizer that I had to drill myself, think I might have gone a little too long on my wb.

Should I

A: just redrill it and call it a day

B: buy a pre drilled fiber rider and heated wheel trucks

C: buy a pre drilled cork top and heated wheel trucks

Just get good wood screws (Inuse the ones out of bones rails) and screw em in where you want them. Donít be too precious about it. I was back when you had to order them off Neil as they were impossible to get, but you canít go too wrong. Iíve loved mine a few times, warped it a bit in my car and 6 years on it still rides sick.

Yea, I think this is def the responsible decision. Was trying to give myself and excuse to buy a fancy new one and try out those heated wheel trucks.
