    Default Bushings

    My bushings are broken i think, the board always tilts one side more than the otehr, and its really irritatin me. I can do flip tricks but its so hard to do the basic stuff with it. I have to pressure the board just so it will go straight and sometimes when i ollie, the board does like a heel flip sorta thing

    Im thinking should i get new bushings and can bushings rly affect skatin much?

    btw what bushins? im thinking medium or soft but i dont know much about bushings sooo.

    Do you skate with tight trucks?

    There's a like panel of Judges in skateboarding you know? the dudes who deem its cool then its cool-Marc Johnson

    Nowadays I just think its just what the biggest rail and who can do the most tricks. It's more like hammers hammers hammers on videos rather then pushing -Nate Jones

    Watchin videos I'd watch more about people how they did the trick then the trick they were doing-Nate Jones

    Agreed. I've gone through all kinds and bones have been the best. I personally skate medium bushings cuz I mainly just cruise around, but, if I feel like doing anything stupid that injures me horribly in the end, I can easily tighten my trucks up a bit and do that.

    Just make sure when you first put them in not to tighten them too much. Ride around for a bit on them slightly loose for a day, then tighten them. Keep doing that until you get them where you want to. If you go at it too fast they go to crap a lot faster and aren't as responsive.
