    Default Returning Skater Wanting Feedback On New Setup

    I'm returning from what I think is about a 14 year hiatus and I'm just not sure on set ups anymore. Tried to do my research and would just like some feedback.

    8.25 Thankyou deck - I like the graphics and I'm a big Daewon fan

    Independent Stage 11 Hollow Forged 149 Standard Trucks - From what I understand 139 or 149 is the way to go with an 8.25, with most people preferring 149 on an 8.25

    Spitfire Classics Formula Four 99d 54mm - I think 99d is the hardness I want?

    Independent 7/8" Phillips Bolts

    Bones reds bearings


    This will mostly be for street skating and occasionally the skate park/bowl skating. I don't think I will be doing sets much, I'm not sure if I have the brave anymore to do them, so I think a good portion will be technical skating and manny pads, but maybe I will get the courage back to do sets.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback, I really appreciate any help.

    Just go with Spitfire classics, not the formula 4’s. Classics feel better. Otherwise exactly this. No experience with thank you decks but probably similar to Almost/Dwindle if I had to guess

    Hey, thanks for the response! Feel better in what way? Also is 54mm a decent size or should I go smaller considering I’m mostly going to be doing flatland?
