So a mate of mine sent me a pic of a stanced skateboard the other day, and it got me thinking.. Here goes
Tossed up on Facebook: WANTED: Skateboard, dont care about the condition, but I just want one.
Got a reply shortly after from my cousin saying he has one he doesnt want, and if I come and pick it up its mine..
I finally got around to going out there today and I picked it up and went back home..
The second I came home, the trucks were off and it got a quick 400 grit to remove any flakey paint, and to roughen it up to make some paint stick..
Then a quick wax and grease rub down and it was time to slap some paint on it.. Raided downstairs and found half a can of gloss black..
The plan is to sometime before I finish school (finish on the 23rd of this month), take in the tricks and try to get some camber on it in metalwork, probably an oxy and a vice, then see where I can go after that.. the pic I was shown had the board cut where the trucks went, Im going to try to make it so I only have to slit it a bit where the wheels come out, but im going to play it by ear..
Thats all for now, But ill keep you posted..
In my world I'm the one an only king, if your searching for the truth then you've got to look within.

that first skateboard hakhawk put up is kinda cool i was going to ask wtf is a stanced skateboard till i seen this.
you should actually take it for a ride down the street, or to a skatepark when your done.
or to those cardinia dam speed humps.
makes me want to get my old board out now.
how about we make the pedals out of sticky rubber and the shoes with steel spikes. at least my shins would like thatOriginally Posted by ari666
