The Royals were so good and I skated so well that it was no longer a challenge so I had to remove them to feel like I was actually putting forth effort. Now I just look at the Royals and marvel at the engineering and craftsmanship.

I love this answer

Nice grip job bro. When I set my first bloard up after a 20 year hiatus I got a monstrous air bubble which left an ugly scar on the grip. Also are you not all snowed in up in Fargo? (I only know the movie and the series)

Thanks! The air bubbles werenít the problem it was the cutting out the outline. Itíll do though.

And yes it is currently snowing. I live in Minot which is in the North West side of the state. Luckily there is an indoor area (Astroturf soccer field and empty floor) where you can skate during the winter months. Not perfect but itís good for a few months of snow.

First time downsizing. Havenít been on an 8.25 in about 2 years. The setup feels a lot lighter and I have better pop. Could just be in my headÖ

8.25 Polar with Wheel wells
149 Indy FH with aftermarket bushings
54 spitfire conical full 99du
Bronze
Mob
Bones big balls

Converse Cons Fastbreaks. Been my go to shoe when I can get them. Wish there were more all suede versions.

I like how Fastbreaks feel but the ones with nylon or whatever wear super fast for me for some reason.

I just started to superglue the Ollie area on all the nylon pairs. End up lasting just as long as my all suede pairs.

8.4 Grimple Hewitt
worn 52mm F4 Classics
Swiss 6
Silverados
Royal 144 inverted hollow mid trucks
Griptape
Vans Half Cab skate

Shape is cool. It's a tad longer than the 8.5, same WB, same 8.3 width. It is a lot like the 8.25 BBS generic shape tons of companies use with slightly shorter kicks and flatter lateral concaves.

These Royals feel like they're built to grind and I'm glad I'm riding the best and can fuck the rest.

still got some life on my previous board, but I had all the parts and I want to see if the 5.6s work with an 8.0 or not before I order a set of Lurpivs.

Picture Show 8.0
Venture 5.6
Blind Jason Lee wheels

used board:

Theories 8.0
Venture 5.2, front truck ground to the axle and falling apart
Spit tablets 51 mm
[close]

never ventures coming with silver kingpins now?

Thunder and Venture had to source different kingpins due to the pandemic. Theyíre slightly shorter too. To make up for the shorter kingpins the heads are now recessed into the baseplate.

My street skating setup:



Real Reneal Doves 8.5 x 32.125, 14.375 WB
Ace AF1 55ís
Spitfire Classics 99a 54mm (worn to about 52 now)

Iím not sure if I like the shape that much. I prefer a long and wide nose/tail, on this deck theyíre slightly tapered/sharp and a bit shorter. I think Iíll also go back to a 14.25 WB next time, to compensate for the weight of the Aceís. I think itíll give me a slightly snappier pop.

The Dane Barker decks are BBS, the rest are PS. There are rumors of a switch and dudes riding PROTOTYPE decks but nothing more than TM hearsay.

As far as I know this is a ďprototypeĒ. As others have said they might be switching woodshops but we will see.
