    Default Board for riding to school?

    Just as title suggests, What board is most preferred to use to ride to school? My skateboard is an ok size to have around, but the route to my school is really rough and bumpy, in some cases its worth just walking.

    Would you use a longboard, skateboard, pennyboard, or cruiser board?
    If so, is there also a certain build or certain brands you would recommend.

    id get a cruiser i like the feel of them more than longboards , when it comes to cruisers i would get a powell peralta or a creature with some independents and all terrain powell peralta wheels

    Im with you. It looked nice, and I think longboards are huge to carry around.

    Just for price sake and curiosity, Would it be okay to go with a blank cruiser deck like this one? http://www.blankdecks.com/decks/old_school.htm

    This look good then? And I guess I could switch to the blank if I needed to.
    I wasnt sure if the hardware/griptape was too important brand-wise.

    One thing I gotta nitpick about: you're going to have wheelbite galore with those massive wheels unless you wanna stack huge risers. The Oj hot juice are 78a, 60 mm (still large enough to cruise over rougher roads) and are about 5$ cheaper on skate warehouse. I'd get those.

    Get a regular street set up. For wheels get Spitfire 80HD or 80D. You can also get Bones ATFs too.

    Would it really be better to throw on soft wheels onto my current Skateboard? Would it still be okay for tricks.

    I'd just go with a regular street setup. Maybe with some softer filmer wheels. Reason being because there is always that one kid that always ask to pop a kick flip.

    So I wanted to bump this thread of mine instead of making a new one.

    Because i'm a beginner, my current skateboard setup is just a Santa Cruz Complete I bought from vans to get into the sport without splurging too much nor starting with some walmart board.

    As far as I know its:
    Santa Cruz Deck, 7.75 I believe.
    Element wheels 54mm. They came with 52mm OJs. Tbh dont know which is better.
    Bones Reds bearings.
    Trucks say Bullet.

    Will a 60mm OJs/ Bones ATF fit my board well? Im on a low budget so im hoping to temporarily buy wheels, then buy a custom setup later.

    And for the moment. Will there be any difference in riding my 54mm Element wheels or 52mm OJs?
    The elements say they're all terrain 95A, while the OJs just say 52mm.

    Thanks for any further replies!

    Stick with the Ojs for now. Wheels sold by deck companies like element are usually pretty hit and miss.Ojs on the other hand Ive heard good things about. As for your cruiser wheels, get the Bones atf if you're interested in doing any tricks, get the Hot Juice if you're only looking to cruise. These will both fit your board, but you'll need 1/8th to 1/4th risers.
