dont listen to that guy, hes a noob. ive been skating for 3 years, listen to me.

7.5 inches wide is the standard with boards and trucks. get an ALIEN WORKSHOP skateboard, i had an elemtn and it total sucked, it was so horrible. the length is about the same for all of the boards.

you mean you have an element and element sucks....

all online shops will have an option of if you want them to put on the griptape or not, i always have them do it because i suck at it.

start out with a k-mart board that hasd concave then get a lighter board  

10 Oct 2006 01:53
F.O.A.L
meh just buy a cheap complete from your local skate shop no point in buying all individual parts if you start skating and then decide its to hard and give up but dont get it from k mart or anything then if you decide you like it get a good complete and ride it round for a while then change the parts you dont like round when you can afford to

its the hardest when you buy it...then it moves around and switches position not giving it enough strength and "pop".
