Today is 21st June 2015, which is Go Skateboarding Day! To celebrate, here’s a few photos of my latest set up.
This is my new Creature skateboards Sam Hitz pro model. It’s a huge 8.75″ wide, which is the widest regular street deck I’ve skated in a long time. I figured that I needed a bigger, fatter deck so it was easier to stay on. Apparently it’s the way forward for us older guys. And anyway, it’s still not as wide as the decks I learned to kick flip on in 1989.
Creature are a cool company, I love their graphics and style.
I also needed wider trucks to got with the larger deck. So I picked up some Independent trucks (of course) from the great Lost Art skateshop in Liverpool. Thanks guys.
Now I need the rain to stop so I can go outside and skate it…
