I did a little digging and it appears his set up is

Disorder deck
Titan-Ti Lite trucks
Speed Demons wheels
Lucky bearings
[close]

Titan ti-lite is before my time. I remember my older brother getting sets of those talking about how great they are and why that is why they broke so easily. Hella light but seeing him come home with shattered truck hangars. Only still to get another pair next weekend.

Early 2000 a.c. vibes here.

To be fair, early 2000s quality control was virtually non existent.

- Do you want me to officially say i ride for your brand ?
- Yes why not ?
- Ok, i'll do it for this amount
- No thanks
- Fair enough, i'll still use them and won't talk about it, your loss

Pretty much. Makes me wonder if most sponsored skaters are getting paid or just getting free products. Like Iím talking about the ones without signature gear. I imagine just a random, mid-tier pro isnít making much.

for trucks and outside of some photo incentives, nothing
Probably just different depending on who it is. Funny reminds me of when shinpei Ueno didn't even know he was sponsored by them so can't be a whole lot of money (or any) for some riders

He said in a setup video that he likes to be able to ride whatever he wants. But he skates thunders.

I wonder if Thunder just canít afford him lol. He doesnít seem like the type of guy who has truck madness.

Him and Koston confuse me with their truck sponsors. Both ride Thunder and Venture consistently but havenít been added to the teams.

Koston had a Royal ad fakie fs krook that LA rail and riding ventures

It wouldn't be worth the hassle for him to have any responsibilities for the comparatively pissy amount of money they'd offer a rich dickhead like that.

Leticia Bufoni is the female Nyjah (all about the money) and it appears that she also has no truck sponsor. Both have their own board brands too. So itís all about money. They probably want big checks to ride for companies and said companies are like, ďNah, weíre gonna sell trucks regardless.Ē

With that said, Tony Hawk still rides for Independent. Idk, if I were them Iíd just get one and take money from royalties on my signature trucks. Just seems weird being that good and not having sponsors for every part of a skateboard 🤷🏿‍♂️

In fairness Tony Hawk gives away his set-up like once a week, probably goes threw more trucks than anyone else..

Whilst on Element team mate Bam Magera told a young Jah he's Nyjah Huston he could do what he wants.  Whilst respecting Bams huge income he chose to be only 25% "i can do what I want" and used that theology not to be obliged in the Truck department of sponsorship.

Damn that's harsh AF. I haven't heard anything about her abusing anyone except Kelvin or whatever. I heard she suplexed him at the plan b park.

Iíve never really thought about this till someone made this thread.

Now this has been brought up, who knows how much he grinds down his trucks.

Personally, I would dislike truck sponsors because I donít really need to change those often. Unless someone could pay, I would be kind of down if I had the opportunity

The truck game has to be weird because Lucas Puig is sponsored by Thunder and is on the team site but on instagram he constantly skates Indyís. Andrew Wilson is on Venture, had a colorway, is on Krooked now yet I still see him skate Indyís.

I don't use instagram but I sure did not know that Puig is riding Indys

This got me thinking, I wonder how many skaters ride trucks that arenít from their sponsor. I know there was an old video with Bam and he had the wrong tricks, and Chris Roberts always says his Thunders are Indys for some reason lol

Now this has been brought up, who knows how much he grinds down his trucks.

In the recent Thrasher Interview with Gerwer Tony Hawk said he's become much more accustomed to riding brand new trucks than broken-in ones because he always gives away his full setup after every demo, contest etc. I wouldn't be surprised if more pros of that very upper echelon did and felt the same. Plus, afaik Nyjah rides his trucks pretty friggin tight anyways, so there's no real downside to riding new ones all the time.
It started as a drunken shit talk but I believe in myself

Idk

There is an old transworld set up video I would constantly watch because he has a cool accent where he has Indyís on but I think they were stage 10s. The ones he rides could be the new Mids.

Guy - get it - there is no money in hardware.

Trucks are only bought by skateboarders - and we usually didnít buy them because Hawk, Koston or Nyjah ride them. This guys are marketing tools to sell stuff to peoples outside of skateboarding like  video games, Jordan 4, or energy drinks.
This high known faces who represent skateboarding to a further target group donít do brand endorsement for small money. How much they need to pay for trucks each year? One set - they get it for free anyway. But how much they coud get out of a track sponsorship - one photoshoot for a milk commercial - or the Navy, or some fastfood chain - is more money you can do with a truck sponsor in a life time.

as compared to skateboards, or skate wheels?

You have seen my there is no money in hardware.

But there is a little different - I go through 6-8 boards per year - and ride my trucks 2 years.
May other people donít ride the truck to the final end - or donít go through so manny decks each year.
But just my skateshop experience- you sell 10 times more decks then truck set ups.

And trucks I donít decide because of the team.
Donít know who is on thunder or Indy right now - and I am a nerd. Choose my truck because of the geometry/ feel.

Boards for sure shape - but also design and pro Team of the company is a factor.

I am sure plenty Kids bought Element because of Bam and Nyjah.
Coud pay thunder Nyjah some money - yes - but woud they do more turnover because they sponsor Nyjah?
Donít think so. And woud Thunder pay Nyjah so much that he really woud care aboutÖ no - so this deal is for broth parties not a priority.
