    I'm 33 and feeling your pain. 22 years of street skating has straight fucked up my body. Since I broke my collarbone a year and a half ago I've slowed down quite a bit. I get up every morning and I...

    Pat Melcher and Richie Jackson are great skateboarders, but what they do is kind of kitschy and not in a good way. Melcher was fucking amazing back when he skated for black label, but lately it's...

    That's quite possibly the absolute dumbest shit I've ever seen. You'd have to be an idiot skating pregnant. She might as well be double fisting 40oz's and smoking crack too. Fucking cunt. I hope the...

    If you've got a regular setup you could just get some risers and get some big soft wheels. Just because a board is shaped like a "cruiser" they really don't skate any different.....I don't know about...

    Bullet trucks and wheels. I suppose it would be good if you're a beginner. If you're not you're gonna need better trucks and wheels.

    I think having skateparks on every goddamn corner has done more harm than good. On one hand it's cool to get more kids into skating and older dudes back on their boards again. On the other hand it's...

    Most of the wheels I've ridden have been 101a. However, I had someone explain shit to me. I guess 101a doesn't technically exist as a hardness as the scale only goes to 100 or something like that.

    I would make it around 7.75. Steep tail, minimal concave with a wide, blunt nose. I don't want it symetrical though. More like an almost tear drop type shape with a narrower tail. I would want as...
