    Default Skateboard fell into the pool

    As the title explains my skateboard might have fallen into the pool . What should I do? The board was fully submerged..

    you could try and dry put your bearings i guess. they'll probably rust anyway though.

    as long as it wasnt in there all afternoon it'll be fine. if it was a newer board i has less chance of getting waterlogged because there are less areas where the wood has scraped the ground and taken the lacquer off.

    The pool is supposed to be empty before you skate it

    That was awesome. May I suggest laying it by a fire to dry?

    You're probably going to need new everything, except wheels.

    I guess no one here has ever been caught out in the rain with a board? If the bearings were recently lubed there should be no noticiable ill effects once it all dries out. If not take them out and lube them before putting them back in.

    I once pulled a skateboard out of the Long Island Sound while fishing. No BS! The wheels (Krytponics Green 65) and aluminum trucks (Tracker MidTracks) cleaned up great with new bearings, bushings, and pivot cups. The deck and hardware were totally toast though.

    Did some other kid throw it in or did it just get away from you?

    I wonder how many eBay and Craigslist boards have gotten wet? Back when I skated everyday, I don't think I had a board make it through a summer without getting wet at least once, some most definately ended up going for a swim.

    Time for a new board?
    I think I'll buy a new board every time it rains from now on haha...

    mmmmmm fully submurged. my favourite.
    anywho.
    i was in the same situation about 3 years ago, it got warped and once it got dried out fully it chipped alot easier and just sorta went to hell from there. but i used the same board for 2 more years i just put up with it. not much you can do. if its a big deal to you you just have to go get a new one.
