Title: Jumping into skating again...
Post by: keith on March 03, 2014, 10:26:00 PM
Just wanted to jump in here and introduce myself...
I stopped skating back in the day ( last board I had was a Christian Hosoi Hammerhead with the Rising Sun graphic, not a re-issue   ;) )
But got the itch to skate again so I'm doing it... just bought a new set up today. Just need to throw it together and bust my ass a few hundred times to get back in the groove,,,

I don't know much about all these new decks etc... but after a little research here is what I came up with.

Plan B P2 Sheckler Deck 8.25"
Independent trucks ( Reynolds stg 11 )
Bones 'reds' bearings
Spitfire Formula 4s 52mm
Shorty's Silverado hardware
Clear grip tape cuz I like the P2 graphic

waiting on the ice to melt  :-\

I feel like that's a dope set up man! After a while of getting back into it you'll see what you like and don't like, but for now it's all about personal preference. That's how I am at least. I'm glad that you're getting back into the swing of things! ;)

Thanks Domz... yeah, I really had no idea what to get. By the time I wear this board out just trying to relearn, i'll know what I want. I like the clear tape look, but ppl are telling me that clear sucks etc, lol. Whatever... I guess Ill learn the hard way. They say it gets dirty looking too...

Well hey, at least you're not me. When I was in junior high (7th grade), I got RED grip on my Plan B P-Rod deck. I got made fun of till the board eventually snapped when one of my friends kick flipped a 7 stair. Never fell for the red grip ever again. I think the clear grip will be cool. If people keep giving you crap who cares. If you eventually don't like it then get black on your next deck.
