Here at Skateboard-City HQ we've been lucky to have a pack of bearings sent through to us from our friends over in California, SkateAmerica.com.
Your board's going nowhere without a good set of bearings, and when looking at any hardware you're thinking of buying for your skateboard it's important to look at who's behind them - who has designed the product and should you trust them? Do they really know what they're talking about? In the case of Andale Bearings, it's safe to say all your rolling needs are in safe hands, with multiple Manny Mania winner and Cliché pro Joey Brezinski, and multiple Street League winning Paul "P-Rod" Rodriguez as the co-founders of the company.
What we're looking at here are the Andale Swiss, the most expensive of the bearings Andale have to offer from their range of ABEC 5, ABEC 7, and Swiss bearings. We have touched on the ABEC rating system for bearings in our Bones Reds article, and mentioned how it has fairly little relevance to skateboard bearings, but what about Swiss bearings? What is a Swiss bearing? Are they better than any other bearing...?
Taking a change from usual Montage Monday footage from members this week we have a part from some Guernsey locals who have made the jump over to Barcelona and are hitting it hard!!
Sun, sea, and switch skating... Living the dream.
