NIce man, very nice. Yeah i've got wheelbite as well because I love turning sharp in the bowl like i'm surfing. Just get some risers if it bugs you but it's never stalled me on the board which is good.

you're going to love the impact deck man, best fucking deck ever. I think i'm going to buy another deck though, this time an Enjoi one.

So I went out on raw street rides the past couple of days and both elbows are battered, on knee is skadanked and my hands have holes in them... love this shit.

Found a small gap yesterday and got stupid on it. Also had a nice little 'video run' that included a manual curb, brick wall for slides, little speedy flat section, ending with an ollie up to bush ollie of a ledge... repeat, lol.

Today I I found a school with some nice benches, but in the very back of the school there was a bleacher facing the school instead of the ball field, so I pulled it up to the sidewalk and did boardslides galore on it... very fun shit.

Also found about a 4 1/2 ft dock that is sick... got the holes in the hands here, but damnit it was worth it.

Btw, presently riding an old Plan B Stanton, Ventures and Spitfire with Swiss.

I sanded down my 8 ft rail today. its been about 2 years since I busted the thing out and its not as easy as I remember, once I build a ramp and get some turf grass Ill incorporate it into a summer snow setup

Yeah, street skating is tough on the body but fun as hell.

I'm thinking of building a medium jump ramp for the house... if I do, pics will follow.

I live on the outskirts of manchester. It's about 20 minutes from Hartford. It's a bust nowadays, if u do come to CT, go to New Haven, they have the best skate scene.
