    Default Freestyle Resources Thread.

    Because Freestyle Skaters are a minority it's hard to find equipment, Trick Tips etc. So why not have a thread where we can put together resources for gear etc

    Here are a couple of company websites:

    http://www.decomposedsk8.com/

    http://sk8kings.com/Merchant2/mercha...T&Store_Code=S

    Here's an eBay seller:

    Of course there is also Keith Butterfields Trick Tips on YouTube.

    Anyone else?

    I'm looking for a new set of 7.25 trucks if anyones got any recs; i can only find ACE Highs, but I want some lows like the speed demons I had that I gifted to a little kid at the skatepark (figured he might as well have a small board while his feet are still small)

    Decomposed has Indy's and a few others. Sk8king's has Tracker. I remember back in the day these being the top 2 truck companies.

    Good thread, it's kind of crazy how few freestyle resources there are, online. I know of shell shocked skateboards (I think the name is) and a member on here, Panda, started and runs a freestyle forum freestylersunited.

    I looked at freestylers united's website and their forum hasn't been active in quite a while. Same thing at Sk8kings. I think that when there were still a lot of freestyle contests the NSA and companies didn't do much to promote their freestyle skaters etc. I think that part of it was that Freestyle isn't as exciting to watch for younger skaters as street and vert plus it takes more patience to learn.

    I think that the media does play an important part in skating trends. I remember wanting to learn to skate after seeing "Back to the Future." I saw "The Amazing Spiderman" recently and said to myself "That's some serious freestyle shit" when he first got his spidey powers and went skating:



    I also thought to myself if all of a sudden I could skate like that I'd be hustling games of skate and making videos for youtube with titles like "Hey Tony Hawk, Suck It!"

    Indy 109's have a 6.9" axle, Trackers 106's I believe are the same. Looking for 7.25" axle other than ACE Highs.
