pretty easy just want smooth, very smooth surface to get started. I was a roller blading, skateboarding, ice skating, snowboarding, and ski kinda kid so your balance may vary a bit.

loads of calf/ankle muscle , stagger feet. Start on "slight" slope then left toes and roll. grass or soft landing surface is not a bad idea either.

Now if I could only find the Stacy Peralta clip where he does all the tail spins and carving, that vid is amazing, so fluid and smooth....

name your trick the one that I you watch over and over and over.

Smith grind!

Nice longboarding vid, JS. Here's a short film by Ari Marcopolous, made in the hills behind my house.

IIRC almost all decks are made by a select few companies, the graphics are the only things many companies make....well that's how it was in the 90's.

Hoping to pick this up tomorrow!






seems like a good transition board, with good concave and grip tape along with a nice nose and tail kick.

you really feel the difference too, my sector 9 with reg type set up feels really tall! This has a nice low and steady feel. Well at least it did rolling on the store carpet

^ Great videos, guys! ^ Thanks for posting up the links. Got my heart racing!

Just picked up this Arbor AXIS to compliment my other Arbor. Like AngryScot's, mine felt good in the store too as it's still gonna be a few months before I can take it outside. Mark H.
