    weight doesn't matter, use whatever you feel is comfortable for you and what you like, don't buy into the hype of "lightest trucks ever" its a gimmic

    I used to be all about light skateboards. Until a gust of wind blew a heelflip out from underneath me. Fuck light skateboards.

    Weight doesn't mean shit, and the majority of light trucks are structurally flawed and less durable.

    Here's the best setup I've ever came up with:

    Kayo or Deluxe. Deck weight doesn't matter.
    Thunder Hi's. Not that hollow kingpin bull.
    Bones STF
    Super reds
    Bones bushings in the trucks.

    This is the end all to all setups.

    Weight couldn't possibly matter less. It makes a minimal difference.

    light weight is bad for me because if its windy and im skating a set the the board will fly away.

    Wheels: Spitfire Big Heads 53mm
    Bearings: Bones Reds
    Griptape: Blank Grip
    Hardware: Blank bolts
    Shoes: Const KA-II
