Yes i emailed them and asked
No i didnt get a very helpful response
Yes i google searched and searched on here
I weigh around 190
6 feet tall
longboarded just a couple times and i love it... dont plan on bombing any huge hills or anything
doing smaller ones, taking it around town, sidewalks, carving
Im definatly liking the Kracked Skulls and i know you guys love it
could you guys put together your knowledge to get me a longboard setup?
oh and money isnt really an issue so im gonna go with those more expensive berrings
do my own grip tape
so i need to know what board is gonna have the right amount of flex, and the size. Also what wheels will work for me...
Thanks sooo much NS
alright get either a 46 or 43 inch....im 5 10 and have a 46 inch m1 and wouldnt mind if it was a little shorter. also with the 46 inches sometimes hit ground jumping on the board or carving real hard. As for wheels....i got the strikers and am pretty satisfied
go for a 45 scimitar, just pick 46 on the order, but leave a note saying you want it 45. email him first asking if he can do that. he will say yes.for trucks, get the black randals. wheels get the lime zigzags if you want to be able to do speed checks and small slides, or the pink zigzags if you dont want to do slides.

The lime Zigzags are sick I have a never summer but i upgraded the bearings to the rush Abec 9 and they roll for days I also went to the bones soft bushings for more responsive turning and if your not doin any bombing I would go more on the short side

no need to get expensive bearings especially if your not racing. go with some bones reds they're pretty cheap still great quality. as for wheels go for the lime big zigs. great quality and they'll be some great fun for carving and really whatever you choose to do on your board. as for trucks go for either randals or paris trucks. both are great for carving and you won't be dissapointed with either. hope this helped

I pictured myself in a Denver bar that night, with all the gang, and in their eyes I would be strange and ragged like the Prophet who has walked across the land to bring the dark Word, and the only Word I had was 'Wow!'"
alright so ive gathered that i should get a 45" scimitar
(im gonna get the Randal Trucks from the site and the Oust Mac 7 bearings)
and it sounds like the 75mm big zigs lime
now.... are you guys sure about the length of the deck?
remember 190lbs. 6 feet tall
and the wheels... im just gonna carve and cruise... dont plan on tricks or anything and the roads around here arent totally smooth...
