I recently attended An Event Apart in Seattle. I took the time to investigate any local skateboard shops that I could find. Element’s national “Ride a Skateboard Day” was that week, and I marveled at all of folks on longboards that I continually encountered all over the city.
The bigger deck is extremely comfortable, and I outfitted it with Independent trucks, bones reds bearings, mini-logo risers + grip tape and Powell-Peralta Bones wheels. It’s really fun to ride.
I took the hardware off an older mini-logo and put it on the Mod series deck.
The conference was great, too. I was amazed at how approachable the presenters were. I recommend it. Highly.
