Yeah elements good.I preferably would get a Darkstar but thats just me...I have thunder trucks and I think They're my best trucks I've ever had
Royals=kingpins break fast
Destructos=last forever (still have them they were my first set) but they always want to turn to one side after you've been riding them for a while
Rukus=They're just real loose trucks that never want to tighten

For bearings get either PIG or Black Panthers
PIG= They last forever and are pretty fast
Panthers= They roll real smooth last real long if you take care of them

Your first board is more like a experment before you really know what you like to ride. Most people ride the boards of there favorite skaters but I go for the size which is 8 and not alot of companies make boards that big so I take what I can get. As for trucks, I ride Royals, there good trucks but the kingpins are long and they can snap. Ventures and good and cheap. Independent's use to be good and on the new ones the base plates snap. As for hardware and ect. it really doesn't make a difference what you ride. The same goes for griptape I've Blackmagic, Ironhorse and Jessup and I couldn't tell the difference. So I just get Jessup since it's the cheapest.
