    Default Dream board set up?

    Money is no object. Build your board!

    I don't know enough about boards to set one up for Parker. But he likes Girl boards (he has one) and Enjoi.

    Well it's not like the best top quality skate setups are something the average Joe can't afford, so my dream setup (I already have it haha) is any non-blank 8" deck with 8" Thunders.

    Yeah, having my own income is nice haha. I just get what ever I feel like and I never settle for the cheap stuff anymore. Pretty much every set up I have is my "dream" setup at the time haha.

    The one I'm getting ready to put together:

    Powell and Peralta Kilian II 7.75" with the ends squared like a freestyle deck
    Tensor Rodney Mullen S lo trucks
    Decomposed Keith Renna Dual Durometer Freestyle Wheels
    Oust Moc 5 Street Bearings

    I'm trying to be more Zen. What is the sound of me not giving a fuck?

    Hardly a "dream setup" but I'd like to have that diamond plate deck from Gleaming the Cube.

    I want an Arbiter KT with some Indy 215s, maybe Abec11 Freerides, then just any bearings, grip and hardware.

    Hmm NoSwitch is thinking outside the box. I'd like to have the hoverboard from Back to the Future. Tony Hawk and his hoverboard hoax...

    Oh ya, it would ride almost as terrible as the acting was in that movie. I'd still like to have it though..

    But man Tony Hawks acting skills have increased.

    In "Gleaming the Cube" he was acting like a pizza delivery guy.

    In this clip he's acting like he's actually skating:

    And in this clip he acts like he actually gives a fuck about the interviewee:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asDwMbqmcsM

    Sorry since getting back into skating Tony Hawk has become my favorite whipping boy about everything that is wrong with it now.

    Maybe give Revive a try. I've been skating their decks for a while and they're pretty good (and they run about $37). No complaints.

    Beyond that, Indies, Bones STF wheels, Bones hardcore bushings, Bones Swiss bearings to top it off. That's basically my current setup.

    If I could go back knowing what I know now the shop where I bought my first board had a Powell and Peralta Kevin Harris complete for $100.
