It’s summer, which inevitably means that I attempt some skateboarding yet again. So far this year, I’m happy to report that I’ve learnt/re-learnt some new tricks. This does however mean that my ankles are wrecked and I can hardly walk.
I needed a new deck, so I paid a visit to my old friends at Lost Art skate shop in Liverpool. After a bit of an adventure finding the new shop, I picked myself a new deck and got it gripped up while I was there. A great service – really helpful – and a profesh grip tape job. Very happy, nice one again, Lost Art.
I had been skating a wider deck for a while, over 8.5 inches – and while this gave me some added stability, it wasn’t as easy to do tricks on.
So I opted for something a little smaller, and chose a 7.75″ Death skateboards deck. Fixed up with Independent trucks, Indy truck bolts and Death wheels, it’s a formidable monster of a skateboard and is preforming fine (unlike me).
The whole set up looks really cool, though it didn’t look all nice and shiny for very long.
Regular readers may recognise this deck – I’ve had one before. Exact same size and everything. Which means that this blog post is a waste of time. Unless – of course – like me, you love looking at pictures of skateboards.
Death have always been a really reliable, quality company and it’s no surprise I’ve decided on another of their decks.
