Cool stuff! I ride a Dogtown deck with Indie trucks and Spitfire F1 Park Burner wheels. Its a sweet board (btw when I say Dogtown I mean its made by the company Dogtown because I guess they're their own company now... I don't mean that I have a "Dogtown era" board with the banana shape and clay wheels, that would be sweet though :P )

I could careless about the wheels but I have grind king trucks. I had one of those banana boards when I was 5ish lol it was like 5 inches thick. Made of plastic and really skinny. I need new skate shoes too. My DC's are worn to s**t from all the heel flips I do. Its my favorite trick. Eclspecially since I can only hit Ollie's and heel flips lol I want to try laser flips next. Since my kick flips are super crappy. So I just stick to the heel flips based moves.

I seen some globes the other day at the mall. They were so expensive. I remember when they only cost $70 now there $100. I'm not buying a $100 pair of shoes just to ruin ya know. On the other hand, they are comfortable as heck though!

What do you prefer, street or very?

How about nijah Houston? That kid is insane right? He's only 17 too and has so much more time to get so much better.

You say that you could care less about the wheels, but if you took a look at mine you'd think differently. My wheels are friggin BEASTLY! And they're made by my favorite skater mr Tony Trujillo.

I prefer skating vert. I can't really do any huge vert ramps though, and if I do, the most I'll do is go up and kick turn back down. I'll skate the s**t out of a regular sized quarter pipe though. My favorite trick to do on them is the Smith Grind. I also love 5-0's, boneless-to-tail stalls, and disasters.

Street skating's fun but my abilities are limited. I can ollie off of/onto/over stuff but thats about it, and the biggest thing I've ever ollied off of is a 3-stair. Oh, and bonelesses. I LOVE bonelesses. Boneless 180's, boneless wallplants, bonelesses off of stuff...I just can't do any flips or shuv-its. I'd like to learn one day but I'm lazy, and every time I try, I just get frustrated and go skate a quarter pipe instead :P

and who's Nijah Houston? Is that the kid with the dreadlocks?

I have broke way too many bones, way too many times street skating... It was fun while it lasted though, cept for the broken bones and occasional landing with a board up my ass, but longboards are a good time. Anyone have recommondations?
