A fresh one for my birthday the other week. Real Ishod Wair 8.25 full, Ace 44s, some old Mini Logos I had with some Bones Race Reds in them. Unfortunately my body temporarily stopped working two days after I ordered it, so haven´t tried it yet. ~..

Nice looking deck, Corey.
Are the aces new too?
Are the nose and tail steep on the real? My current ride is too flat.

Yeah, the Aces are new too. Was originally planning to put my old Thunders on it, but got a bit of a discount and couldn´t resist.. :oops:

I´d say the deck looks fairly steep, but the concave isn´t too crazy. Haven´t gotten to try it yet, so can´t give a proper review.

I bought a belt sander cleaner and a rubbing brick in the hardware shop today.

I may have found a new manny/ledge spot but if it works it will need a rub brick and some clear coat.
And for the first time ever, i want to clean my griptape. I usually have dirty griptape and don't care, but for some reason, dirty griptape is bothering me at the moment.

Some new pumps for 2019 - Etnies Marana vulcs. They feel nice walking around the house..... I’m hopeful.

Another 10 inch egg. Cracking.

Here's the current one - https://www.instagram.com/p/BsLLpMpFYPZ/

Big and heavy, difficult to heelflip, but easy to kickflip (go figure) and loads of fun to roll around on. Not always easy to get hold of I believe, hence the spare (I'm a mug).

Skateboarding outside destroys decks quicker (well failing to land tricks outside does... :shock: :lol: ) - just ordered 2 Chocolate ones. they were 29 quid each as they are not very pretty but that's messed up after 1 sesh so who cares really...

Looks mega! When I first glanced at it I thought it was a finger board.... not sure why.

I’m a fan of Formula Fours. In damp weather they don’t seem to pick up crud like other wheels, and they seem less likely to slide out unexpectedly

Also really good in the indoor parks for not collecting all the dust / wax / crud unlike the powerflex wheels.

I'm not in the market for a set of wheels at the moment, but these look like they could be perfect for when I am.

That Vallelyphant is ace Jeroen. I had a pink one in the good ol' days and would happily have another to play with.

Might have a photo of it on my laptop somewhere.

Edit: Yup. Could be due a new one.. :D :D :D

Tensor mag lows - can’t argue with the quality of the tensors they are very well put together. Some bigger named brands let them selves down sometimes with poor pivot cups with giant air pockets from the mould or the axles not being centred in the hangers.

Just pulled the trigger on this deck! It looks good fun ....... I hope it is!

The trouble with crappy weather is you start lurking the skate shops & the mind wanders & then you get inspiration & then you think F%c@ it I need this. :)
