1. Smash the **** out of the walmart board.

Now we can proceed.

Any deck/trucks/wheels are fine. Go for a complete from ccs or something

Whats your shoe size? I need this to determine how long your penis is. I mean, the width of your board. If its 12 or higher you need an 8 minimum. 8 x 32 is a good size.

Indy, monster, fury, grind king and phantom are all good trucks. Bones are the only bearings period, and I recommend their bushings too. Jessup is good grip, but usually its all the same. For wheels, get spitfire or ricta.

For a deck, I definitely recommend lib tech. But enjoi, element, anti hero, real, are all good.

I use copelands decks just because they're usually hella cheap.

Hmm...I have a Zero and it held up really well but I havent skated in years due to a loss of concrete when I moved to the country.
My friend had black magic grip tape. It's supposed to be good but my friend's didnt hold up good at all. If all you can do is a decent ollie then I would say it doesnt really matter what your get. Just because some one else likes a certain thing doesnt mean you are gonna like it. Hmm...I tried a World Industries once and could easily ollie really high on it when I could barely ollie on my Zero. I tried a baker too and couldnt ollie worth **** on it. So, I dunno if I were you I would pick random things...actually if I were really you I would just go for the cheapest. :dodgy:

Skated about 2 years ago... had an element with independant trucks, spitfire wheels...and i cant remember what bearings i had.

I was never any good most i could do was a haggard ass kick flip. I mostly used skateboarding as transportation back then...

i've worked at a skateshop for the passed three years, and I can honestly tell you that chocolate, girl, and zoo york are the best boards on the market. stay away from flip, blind, and world industries. i've never sold one of those that somebody didnt ***** about it chipping really bad or getting stress fractures really quick.

as for trucks, thunders, silvers, and grind kings are the way to go

spitfire wheels of course

jessup grip tape

Flip HKD bearings

any hardware will do fine. anymore questions, just ask

I'm pretty sure that everybody who plays paintball can say that they used to skate...

anyways, lib tech is the way to go... they're a tad bit more expensive, but they're designed with fiber glass or some crap like that in the middle of it, so they don't stress as much and they'll last three times as long as a normal deck

Actually, yeah, I've used chocolate, girl, zoo york, flip, and world industries (actually owned the boards, not just used it for a second), and the chocolate, girl, and zoo york did stand up the best, while the others did chip. Listen to this guy, he knows what he's talking about.
