     70-100 for a deck, 60 or so for trucks, 40 for wheels, 20-30 for bearings, 15 for tape and hardware.

     
    expensive deck. unless youre talking in Canadian money.
    decks here are usually 60 or 70 at the max. and thats with funky pop super special unbreakable wood stuff. i get most of my decks for around 40 or 50

     I am talking about canadian money...which is at about what, 98 cents to the American dollar right now? That's what you get for living in the frozen whit north, and having all your shred gear brought in by doglsed.

     Wow, double post 2 weeks apart, that's got to be a record. Has anyone tried skitching a car before? I mean, it looked like fun, but I never realized how fucking awesome it is. I could actually carve like a snowboard. Then I hit the pavement and realized it's not really that much like snowboarding. But still fucking awesome.

    its not sketchy if its not too fast and you actually know how to ride a skateboard. we like skitching downtown in the summer with our notlongboards and longboards.. cruising around 15mph through the tourists... its a good time.

     Yeah It's pretty fun, kinda freaky when you get going really fast though and you can't see whats coming up on the road in front of you

    One of my best friends from back in the day seriously fucked himself up skitching. Like 25 years old and has to have his mom take care of him fucked up.

     o totally. i do it on my longboard/skateboard with longboard trucks and wheels all the time. its when you go on an actual skateboard with hard wheels that it gets super sketchy and you start sliding and speed wobbling when you dont want to

      I see.
    Skating is hard enough, I can't imagine getting pulled around at 20+mph.

    Thanks Spenser.
