    OT - Anyone want to go longboarding?

    Well I just started and I'm hooked. I found some great spots for beginners over on the west side. I went to Estrella Comp loops behind PIR today with my son found a real nice run. The parking lot to PIR is primo for a noob, miles of smooth black top with nice rolling hills and no cars. I have an extra board if anyone wants to try it for the first time. It's kind of like DH where shuttling would make it a lot more fun...

    Nooo thank you! My learning curve was pretty painful so I got rid of the board before I killed myself. Very appropriate website there though

    How'd you do that? I'm more of a carver than bomber, that's for sure. That's why I'm starting off on "rolling hills" with no cars I never skated when I was a kid and just started last month at 34 so I'm just taking it easy...This is more like my talent level lol...j/k I'm a little better than a 12 year ld on his frist ride

    I usually just cruise around on the green belt that kinda runs parellel with Hayden road. It starts off at 92st and Shea then it takes you all the way down to tempe if you wanted to. But there are great little hills and long cruising session as you go down. The only draw back is you start having to much fun then relize you have a long way back to the car. I usually end up doing a all day ride out there around this time of year. lots of place to stop by and eat and chill and do small shopping (bring backpack). I got a pintailed bamboo sector nine board with gumbie wheels with some high grade bearings. I might join if you pm when you head out,

    Right on, sounds good. I think I talked to you last year about riding up at FINs. You're from Kona right? My wife grew up in Hilo...I took her over to the Cardinals Stadium on Saturday and we cuised the lot then grabbed some beers at the yardhouse.

    Cool, my Hapa Girl is just into the real mild stuff too. The White Tanks would be sweet to. They just black topped the roads in the park.

    I go about 3-4 nights a week to some small hills around my neighborhood. Last night, me and a buddy found some pretty mellow hills in the Squaw Peak area. Steep at the top, and then they flatten out near the end, and they were pretty long too, considering the location. We usually go at night because I get off work late, and there are hardly any cars out. The shuttle things works great too! I would be down for an LB shuttle run every now and then, that would be tight!

    Longboards are fun, but if you really want to feel like you are surfing try one of these!

    Shuttling sounds sweet.

    The sickest spot I found is Cotton Lane (west side) south of I10. It's a brand new road going up to Estrella Mountain Ranch. No houses on it for probably 2 miles of downhill. 4 lanes and a middle lane. Not crazy steep, but probably steep enough for anyone to enjoy.

    It's so new it's not even on the map yet. This is where a new bidge is at the bottom of the run.

    I am with ken, but the website is amusing! The R side column of the vid clip shows people being wheeled into an ambulance with a Ked board stabilizing their spine- VERY appropriate website. I am already good enough at messing myself up. I don't need another dangerous addiction, but I do admire the skill and bravery!

    lol don't be scared...These new longboards are crazy stable. I was horrible on a regular little board and feel comfortable as hell on this thing. It's like riding a 29er compaired to a tiny BMX bike.

    I live at the base of Lookout Mtn so the street in front of my house has a nice mellow angle, perfect for cruising. The only problem is I didn't really have the stopping thing dialed, specifically the panic stop. After getting pretty comfortable with the hill I was letting myself go further before scrubbing speed and was getting up to about 20 mph. Not stupid fast but enough. Of course, a car pulled on to the street right at the absolute worst moment. I tried the quick stop, got wobbly and went down at full speed. No helmet, gloves or pads since "I'm just going out for a few minutes in front of the house"... Lost most of the skin on both palms but somehow avoided breaking my wrists or my skull. I just didn't take it seriously enough and nearly ended up in the hospital. I think I'll stick to things that have "real" brakes

    damn...I can see being a little gun shy...I only ride big hills at places with no cars. There is no instant stopping unless your really good and can do a slide.

    what length is your new scimi, Lucky B? I have a 46'' M1 and a 44'' scimitar. for the cash outlay, you can't beat K.S. i also saw your post over on silverfish. didn't know it was you!

    It's a 46", it's bad ass. I went with the oust bearings, Black RII's, and some 75 Lemon BigZigs. I've been riding the hell out of it. What the difference between the the Scimi and the M1? I doesn't really say on the site.

    I just love that you can get just about the best board made with the best parts delivered to your door for less than $200...Hell, you can't get the "best" handlebars for $200...

    Let me new if you want to do some shutteling some time. Nothing to steep yet...

    Later

    the M1 was williams first real production board lucky B. its a great rider, and is also available in different lengths. the real difference is in the fact that the scimitar has huge cutouts for clearance with the bigger width and diameter wheels. the 46'' length is a true cadillac in either deck, as you well know. most speed boards like your evo are way stiffer so they wont change truk geometry from flex, and less likely to bounce you off at high speed if you hit an unexpected bump. you can get some speed on the KS. decks though. loose trucks will contribute to the dreaded speed wobble. i set my truks for a compromise, but lean toward looser since i'm more of a carver than a speedboarder DH. my 44'' scimitar is more responsive than my 46''M1, a bit stiffer flex. i am rolling 3dm 75mm 80a avila wheels on the scimi that are 66mm wide. i love the traction of them, but there hugeness makes them not push as well as your B-Z'S . my M1 has abec 11gumballs 76mm,x 78a duro with a 54mm contact patch. (width of 'thane that actually touches the tarmac). great all around wheel. both boards are running randal 11s.

    yeah, we might session one day, but i gotta wait a bit more on my ankle injury
    do you have any time off for the holidays? between christmas and new years i'd like to come sample that P.I.R. zone i live clear over in east mesa so that might be a better fit. seeya!

    Right on, hit me up when you want to hit...It's like 10 minutes from my place and I'm off that week. If anyone else wants to go, I have a spare board to use.

    Hey let me know if you still want to go boarding this weekend. The White Tanks would actually be closer to your Mom's place but I'd be down for either.

    I need to get my ass back on my bike. I've been boarding way too much, so I might do a bike and board trip to FINs or the Tanks. I'll PM you my number

    Back in the late 80's my buds and I used to skate the big ditch by the Warpaint trailhead. There weren't many houses there back then, and with the houses came the cops. Every time I ride up to that trail head, I think about all the good times had there in my youth.

    Dude you'll love it! I have the Apex 34 and it's so bad ass. They seem to ship them with the truck as loose as possible, so if you haven't rode the original trucks yet, tighten them up a little because they carve like crazy. What part on town are you on? There is a pretty nice ditch at the Cards stadium. Here some pics from yeterday, we hit a few spots (and a few Pubs) off the light Rail.

There is a pretty nice ditch at the Cards stadium. Here some pics from yeterday, we hit a few spots (and a few Pubs) off the light Rail.
    Yea, I bought a few buddies of mine some of their boards for Christmas last year and I ride the trucks pretty often. Love them. Im around the Boltmore area. We have talked about heading out to the Cards House at some point. Where abouts is the ditch in relation? North? South? East? West? Any other pics?

    Right on, I have a Custom 45 also that I mostly use time have my dogs pull me on, great boards. It's in the SW Corner, right off Bethany Home and the loop 101. Hit me up if you go, I'm like 5 minutes from there. We've been doing a group rides on Friday nights there lately...I posted some pics on here.

    Yea, it was either the Custom 45 or the Apex. I have a Sec9 Luke Nosewalker that I might throw some S10s on, so Im glad I went with the Apex. Just talked to the same dudes with the Originals and it looks like we are heading to In-N-Out and are going to make our way out to the Cards Stadium I guess! Is it ridable in low to no light?

    We did make it out there. Pretty sweet, but my helmet light is no substitution for sun light. I can see where that place would be flipping sweet if the little curb wasnt in the middle of it! Does that ditch that runs off to the North ever dry out? Looks like that would be supreme!

    Right on. I actually thought about getting some "quick crete" and trying to make that curb ridable. Did you take the greenbelt at all? Under the bridges and pretty fun to. Did you guys ride the overpass on Maryland? There normally isn't any traffic , so you can bomb that towards the stadium.

    Give me a ring or Text me if you go again. We're probably going Friday night.

    Woah, I have no idea how I missed that last post. The quick crete idea is fabulous in my eyes! We pretty much just rode that little area, and for a short time we rode around in the parking lot teaching a friend of mine how to do it. No idea where the overpass is, but sounds tight!

    Tonight we rode a pretty sweet parking garage on Bell. Four levels with an elevator, and its pretty mellow if you want it to be. Also totally bombable! I took another guy who has never really done anything like that before and he caught on really well! I think the stability of my Nosewalker in encouraging, haha. Im uploading a vid on YouTube right now that I will post later. Apex should be in on the 13th!

    The only thing that sucks about being the only person that can ride and record at the same time is that I have hardly any footage of me, haha. We went back again tonight, so I will post some pics and maybe another vid in a bit.

    Sucks about getting booted at the Stadium. Did you get any good ride time in at least?

    1) A few boards in the elevator
    2) Buddy Arthur on this Derringer

    I brought my son and a couple his llittle buddies. And as soon as we got there, one of them had a trick board and tried olliing up on the little perimeter wall. So some old prick rolled up and said we had to leave because he was doing tricks...So we just went back to my house and rode around the hood then jumped in my pool, so it was all good.
