I have an old Tony Alva deck somewhere in the attic.  If I remember correctly it has Independent trucks and Variflex wheels.  Need to find it, dust it off, and try to ride it.

I would give the system a try on a split board but still think I would prefer touring on skis but I have never tried a splitboard. http://www.buckmans.com/http://www.buckmans.com/

put together an old clip from 2012... my friend Ryan bombed this hill from the top (the second half is all you see here) and almost died at the bottom at full speed. not the most perfect footage due to point and shoot cam in low light with brightening in post, but you can see it. love this guy.

the majority of people will never "get" skateboarding.  "back in the day" it was the whole idea that we're hoodlums up to no good.  now, it's people who DO skate, but completely miss what skateboarding actually is.. hence electric longboards, douchebags skating period, etc.

stoked you picked up that hosoi deck.  never too late!

Another skating related note: I don't know if this is anywhere else, but I currently live in Palo Alto and I've seen tons of d-bags riding these electric longboards. Seriously, how lazy does someone have to be to buy one of these things? Most look like they don't have the balance to kick and ride because the people I've seen do not look comfortable riding, and these boards cost $600-700. Some tech/SV people are strange.

Girlfriend just bought me a Hosoi hammerhead deck with independent trucks, and reds. I was getting some wheel bite, so I put risers under the trucks and it rides like a dream. It's a heavier board, but not nearly as heavy as I thought it would be. I've wanted this deck for 28 years and now I have it :)

Since this is a snowboarding site and a skateboard thread if you haven't tried a Carver skateboard I recommend getting on one with the C7 or CX truck...try the C7 first. They are incredibly fun to ride.

Also, impacts work better than just trying to muscle them off, which usually shears them. Try an impact driver or gently rapping an old wrench. This is after soaking them with PB Blaster.

You can try Kroil or PB Blaster, they sell for fairly cheap.

I used to skate every day but the past few years not so much for a few different reasons. For one the area I am now living in sucks for reagular wheels. Too many uphills and giant cracks on all the sidewalks/ roads. the other reason is my bearings are shot and everything is rusted tight from lack of use so I cant really swap them out. Even clr hasnt been able to loosen up those nuts lol. anyways I am new to this site and I would love any new ideas for getting those nuts off I MISS SKATEBOARDING!

Just found out the 3 acre skate plaza being built in Chicago is ahead of schedule and might open by november just in time to get some skating in before snow comes. The place looks SICKKK!!! So pumped because the layout is so nice.  I will post pics later.

Keep sending videos and pictures spencer. Those guys can shred with some insane tricks. It's crazy how hard it is to ride fakie and get the pop needed to hit some bigger rails. My mind says I can do it but my feet have no idea what to do. I can get little tricks but nothing like I want.

Damn. I wish I had an ollie like that. Nice pics, Spenser. Bought a board about three weeks ago and getting ollies and shuvits somewhat down. Just have to keep practicing, I guess. I kind of messed up my ribs a while back so I've been skating pretty gingerly because I don't want to slam and have to restart the healing process. Oh well, I wouldn't be going that big anyway, and I'm still having a blast.

I know a bunch of people who ride one way and skate the other.. it's interesting.  for anyone who has followed my video nonsense, sam buck is like that.  rides regular, skates goofy

anyway, skated with a couple radbots the other day after picking them up from the airport.. rainery is back, and he brought sean fithian with him, who is pretty good on a skateboard.  pulled out the camera and was dorking around with filming and aggressive zooming, and got some keepers and lots of funny stuff.  probably will film a little more at some point (they're here for 3 weeks, maybe more) and make a little edit

couple screenshots for now.. mark's mean back suski, and sean's front blunt

   

and skated for a little bit yesterday too, goofing around.  I may post a couple more later.

That is interesting that you ride goofy but skate regular. It means that when you get back on the mountain you will be a beast at riding switch.

I've been skating every day this week.

Decided I'm going to try and get into skating this summer. Mostly just to try and keep up my snowboarding skillz but also because it looks like a blast. Now all I need is a full setup... 

I've longboarded for a while, but mostly just as transport from point A to point B. It's funny, I'm goofy snowboarding, but I skate regular. Anyone else that way? Kind of makes me think I started on the wrong foot snowboarding.

that's why I don't want a longboard, I feel like I won't be able to slow down haha.

But I do want a freeboard. They're expensive though, and hard to ride.

Yeah I live just outside of DC and we have hardly any hills. For some reason longboarders also get hated on a lot. Not sure why.
