Well just in time for the holidays, more Skateboards.
I like riding Long-boards down at the beach after work. I work at LAX which is on the Ocean, so this makes it very convenient.
The first one is my take on a Surf Board. Its made of Mahogany, Hard Maple & Walnut. Its about 5/8 thick solid wood.
I have been dealing with Koastal Boards, http://www.koastal.co/ who make the trucks and love them. If you notice they have a locking tab to prevent wheel bite. This is a good thing when your pushing 50. LOL Falling seems to hurt more now.
Braker wheels are OK, but will not deal with them again owner is VERY RUDE… I have found Boss Hawgs wheels to be better.
The other boards are
A) Paduak, Purple Heart and Ipe
B) Blue Oak ( which is my board and Love this wood.) Its hard as a rock.
I use Lucid spray on grip system its 2 parts and I love it. I found grip tape gits dirty and you cant see the wood. Lucid you can re-apply right over old grip when worn-out, and great for touch ups
