Still on my bullshit. The black friday hall is in



For some reason, my snack deck is a long WB clutch board instead of a short WB ps board, so I'm a little miffed with that, but I'll probably still try it just to see what clutch wood is like. Also, I do plan to skate the grimple as is.

lol i can't believe the grimple full are real, so good

Got some Riptides and so far not hugely different, but no squeaks.

Lil jawns - dig the 14" length and double stick tape being standard

Ace hard bushings - no compromise to the turn - perfect for someone 165+ lbs who skates medium.

Bones SPF 81b - perfect for freshly poured slippery concrete parks

How different do they feel compared to the normal bushings though? 

Just curious.

I talk too much about skateboards.  Sorry.

Two more of these might as well get them while they're still cheap:


Best shape I've ever skated, BBS wood too. ~14.4 wheelbase though. Their site has incorrect information.

After some thought, I  think I figured out the source of the extra cost: He is Chico and you should give him money.

Itís honestly not that much more than a regular board. Itís 75$ flat with shipping and grip. I pay a little under 70 at my local after taxes, so this doesnít feel like a price hike to me.

The last of my black Friday haul hit the door last night. Got a little loose with the spending this year. This picture doesn't include the 2-3 random orders that were place the week before or after the actual sale weekend.

I bought another ten various Element decks (50% off sale a week before the Black Friday sales) all 8.38 and 8.5 but not one single listing, even on the Element sites, along with the other place I bought them, was correct as far as dimensions and info.

The boards have all dimensions clearly listed on them (which are correct when measured), but I guess no one goes and actually checked them to put up the listing information.  Thankfully they are the dimensions I was hoping for and it is not a big deal to me, but it is still very annoying, especially if someone bought a board thinking it was a bigger 8.5 x 32.2 with 14.5 wb and it was actually a shorter 8.38 x 31.75 with 14.25 wb, which one was.

At least they are all BBS so regardless of anything else, they can get a paint job or sanded back and still be better (and cheaper) than most of the other boards in the blank or medium price range.


That peanuts graphic is pretty cool though.

Picked up some indy 144 Ti trucks. Skated indy exclusively for years before the truck madness pulled me in all different  directions. Feels like home.

Can confirm, this board is great. The shape is perfect. In fact, I just bought 2 more after the first session on this because it felt so good.

Thrasher Angel Dust zine
Golden Hour issues 1-3
Thunder 148ís
Thunder 90a replacement bushings. Theyíre softer than stock bushings and help keep the trucks loose and pinching
NFG 54 Vee shape wheels
2 different Gonz boards

Thatís every skate related thing I bought for Black Friday. Just waiting on my Sleep Dopesmoker snow globe from Third Man Records to finish off everything  I ordered this year

Black Friday Splurge:
Emerica Gamma White (totally NOT white, BTW, more of a taupe or creamy beige)
F4 Connies 99/54
Venti standard/plain 6.1
I donít know why I bought the Ventures. I donít even ride, let alone actually like Ventures! Buuut, theyíre in a width I like, and they were only $19.98 for the pair, shipped, so Iíd have to be a ding dong to pass up such a deal. I guess I wound up jumping on the Venture train after all. SMH.
Ponder the giant lemon.

Dang this looks good. With the small trucks too. Very nice.
What wood shop for the chico stix?

Ben Raemers Foundation  - Cons One Star mids. Bought online so have absolutely no idea about fit but hopefully they work out.

Spanky g6 in green. Emerica Black Friday sale... should have bought more!

It's been awhile since I have had a pair of Emericas. I think my last pair was Ed's shoe, Transist. Maybe over 15 years ago
