get the usd team thrones, once you get better, you dont need to buy new skates, just replace some after market parts, liners, frames ...
but, whatever sk8s you get, make sure theyre ufs compatible, razors soul 2ks arent, as well as some salomons, a k2 and roces needs some adapters or something
i have some st-90s but the liners r wearing down, and i want GC frames, so im building a pair of usd ufs classic style thrones w/ senate sinister liners, ground control murda frames, and mindgame or senate wheels
and sk8boardings not harder, it just has a slower learning curve b/c everytime you fall, you gotta chase your board to the other side of the sk8 park
