Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

If you feel the urge to write some long, boring, self-congratulatory essay on here maybe just go jerk off instead.

Just ordered a deck & pair of Dickies from 35th Ave.
I have three 8.75" w/ 14.5" decks on ice, but I've seen so few on my size recently that I snagged another shape, in case the COVIDs keep the supply scarce for longer than I expect.
My 2nd purchase of Scram, but I haven't even set up the 1st one yet, so I have know idea how the wood is.
Anybody here put in any time rolling around on of one of them? Thoughts?
Doesn't matter much, it's bought & paid for, so I reckon I'll ride it even if it's garbage wood.

Just got a deck from Taobao (China's Amazon) to try out. It was $30 to see just how shit it would be and it's arriving in 2 weeks.

What is amazing is the promotions they are running with the board sales:
Buy 5 boards - they send you an 8ft flatbar
Buy 10 boards - they send you a kicker ramp
Buy 15 boards - they send you a wooden ledge

Would have gone with the 5 boards but I stay in a tiny apartment with zero storage space.

610 sqft apartment in Asia, I got space for the boards but no space for the flatbar, so yeah almost a coffin. Standard BBS dimensions, not sure on the concave etc yet, hence the 1 sample piece.

Singapore, been here my entire life! Not as bad as Hong Kong though, their apartments are really shoeboxes.

Seems like every mid top cupsole is sold out so its finally time for proper cinex. With code slapnerd they were 58 shipped. Would have tried them a long time ago but I usually don't like white shoes.

Managed to break my arm last month slash grinding a curb of all things; still got a couple more weeks until I can get back on the board, but I've got my celebratory almost-christmas complete ready for my return.



Polar '92 Bethlehem
NFG 56mm Vs from the factory second sale
Big balls
Rib bones
1/8" lucky risers
Thunder 1" all hardware with green indicators

For the truck sommeliers curious about the '92, the board is 8.25" over the back truck and 8.75" over the front truck

8 foot flatbar is a crazy deal. Hope you can treat yourself eventually

kinda bummed on this

had to do an "order online/pickup in person" from my local.  i have a weird pet peeve where i hate when boards are screened on plain white wood.  i need a nice looking wood grain, or paint over colored wood.  so it looked like red wood grain in the pic, but when i picked it up is that shitty heat transfer over white wood, and the wood feels really light like a price point.  first Tum Yeto board in about 20 years, and might be the last one for a while. 

tldr: i got catfished by covid

Yea Iíve read and heard that elsewhere as well. Iíve never had any problems with them in the past. In fact I like em a lot.

I know they do have cheaper price points, but thought they were only on their completes you can buy.

Maybe they switch all team decks to something else, with pro models and special runs the good stuff.

Or Covid fucked the supply and they took what they could get? Does that even happen?

Havent set it up yet, I got about 3 more weeks before my arm is healed up enough to skate again, but just doing carpet tricks it feels great. Concave is very mellow but the kicks are still nice and steep. Comparing it to the Hockey 8.5 I was riding, I really appreciate the slightly longer tail and the extra standing room up front. I'll update you when I actually get a chance to ride it.

Fucking lame, hope you still managed to get a replacement.

Down here in Chile, like pretty much any other place, to find F4 is almost impossible. I found some 54mm conical fulls 99 mash ups... 2 yellow and 2 blue, I guess it could be worse and at least on photo they don't look that bad
