  1. Do the Thunder and Tensor truck reviews first, followed by the 1031 deck. I'm interested in reading those. :-)

  2. Thanks for the feedback. I'll do those reviews. The 1031 deck is... interesting, I think is the best word. More to come soon.

  3. I'd love to see reviews of the Spitfire F1s vs. the Parkburners. Also wondered about the Indy bearings...I've heard they weren't very durable.

  4. Any of the bearings reviews would be great. I'm also interested in the Almost double impacts.

  5. I'll say right now that the Almost Double Impacts are damn near indestructible. No chipping, no breaking, pop for months and months. And I'm 220 pounds. Absolutely worth the money.

  6. Hello,

    I was wondering if you knew any good places to skate in the DC Metro area (esp. Silver Spring or nearby) that aren't going to get me kicked out immediately or in trouble with the police?

    I haven't really skated in about 10 years, so even an empty parking lot where I can try to relearn basic flatground tricks would be a big help. I've heard there a couple nice skateparks in the DC area, like the one in Arlington, but my skills are going to be so rusty that I'm not sure I'm even ready for a park at this point. Besides, I don't have a helmet or pads yet.


  7. I'd like to know how you like the Daewon double impact with the flat concave. Great blog.
