    Try loosening up the nut. Whole new ball game.

    Depends on the surface you wanna ride on. Like i wrote the standard 78a Carver wheels worked great for me for streets. In the park on relatively smooth terrain i prefer my Divine 92a 60mm wheels and might even try some harder ones in the future.
    If you're in the States and want something 85a and up take a look at Rainskates. They have loads of different durometers available in different sizes and shapes. Read really good stuff about them at the silverfishlongboarding forum.
    Those Divine wheels look good as wheel as an allround wheel:

Probably making sound way more complicated than it was, but it actually came to me in a dream. I realized i could have just bought a replacement but I just so happened to have the PERFECT matching bolt so it all worked out. To make sure the bolt was in tight I did the same process but switched the socket to the other side.
    Thanks, great idea and description.

    Logan, I've been riding PP Bombers 64mm 85a in the bowls at the park with good success. So, so much slidier than the stock Carver Roundhouses but I can board slide and tail slide the bag outta those stocks with great success too and they do great in the pool too. Been experimenting with Bones SPF Skatetopia wheels too and those are hard as fark and sliiiiiidddeee.

    Problem is, as you know, harder the wheel the less carve. I like the grip for power production even in the pools and bowls. I find that if I'm not pumping much even when I have good speed then it all feels more skatey and less surfy. Drop-in needed to get speed without pumping.

    Round lip vs. square lip is huge when it comes to slide, control, and grip as variables. Not many people talk about that but it matters a ton.

    I like these rainskate wheels.. Now im trying to figure out what set up will be best for me. I loved the 78a roundhouse but they got to coning on me bad. Now Im on the o-tang 83a durians which are fun but wearing out and I realize they are 10mm larger then the roundhouse; you guys are running wheels in the 64mm range? Both the roundhouse and the otangs had the square lip.. these rain skates seemed to be beveled, some double beveled.. (yellow hornets) but I am skeptical on that hard of a duro when it comes to maximum pumpage.. i need some guidance here.

    Fellas, found this on Netflix the other day. It's an hour and a half well spent.

    Documentary: Dogtown and Z-Boys:

    When I was younger, my friend worked at Blockbuster.

    He stole 'Dogtown' for me and got fired.

    Pre-digital piracy at it's best...

    I never watched it.

    You gave no thanks to your bro who sacrificed min wage for you. Lost out on seeing an all-time flick too. Crap, chicks even dig that movie so you could've watched it with a wahine.
