Newquay sunset skate and new hardware

Postby Red Beard » Fri Oct 03, 2014 4:11 pm

Went to Newquay with the gf last weekend to stay with a friend, so we did what you do in Newqs - spent Sunday afternoon having a surf then had a skate round Pentire Headland car park with the sun setting. The better half even jumped on the board a couple of times and enjoyed it..!

The set up in the photos above and is the 85 Flux Capacitor from Roots Longboard, It's not strictly a longboard but it's wide and oldschool style, with Bennet trucks and 70mm 78A Abec 11 urethane.Got it in August and it's smooth, fairly fast, turns well and rolls really quietly.

Also just picked this up:

The gf's best mate happens to be Adam Moss's sister so my original plan was to get the deck signed and wall mount it - but it turned up ready gripped so I've decided it's going to get used..!

So it's now wearing Enuff trucks in "Covert" black with Krooked riser pads and Craptonite bolts. The intention is to add wheels and bearings on pay day...but I'm not convinced it'll end up being that long tbh..!

Cheers

I recognise that carpark, but I've never skated there - is it smooth?

Nice oldskool style board, and nice to see someone with Bennets - proper turny trucks :-)

Thanks for the comments guys, it's not mega smooth but it's definitely smooth enough and there's enough slope from top to bottom to get a cruise on.
