So the much lauded foiling room has pushed Street Sup away.
Our old threads are buried in there, but I might get a foil cut if I go in there to look.
So I'll do this here.
Feel free to comment, interject, abuse, ignore, or lurk.
I don't care!.

Originals.
Bought the very nice looking Pintail boards, Originals trucks, various wheels and bearings.
Liked them a lot, but compared to the Loaded boards, seemed to have a lot of rolling resistance.
In general, smaller wheels, different bearings.
The Loaded had some nice wheels, bigger, ordered the same.
Orangatang Kegel 80mm 80a Orange Longboard Skateboard Wheels from Basement Skate.
And some bearings that are in the small box to the right.
No idea about this stuff, but Internet shopping is your friend.
And bits are ridiculously cheap compared to SUP things.
Commenced the swap.


Removing the old wheels involved undoing a nut with the pictured shifter.
A socket would have been better.
These are the bearings.
You push them in to the middle of the wheels before you put the wheel on the axle thing.


Looked better instantly.


Off for a test.


Look at those wheels!
Much faster, smoother, but the Originals deck lacks flex.


OK, with 90 plus KG of Nozza on board, there's a bit of flex.
But feels much improved, although I could probably have ordered the board like this in the first place if I knew more...


Stand by.......

Nice setup nozza, at 80kg I find the 43 pintail of that model has too much flex probably because of a very narrow shape combined with 8ply deck though a 9 ply would better. Those orange orangatang big wheels are nice, soo stable and lots of bite.

There's a long, well thought out post leading to this, but I can't wait.

Those of you who were concentrating last semester will recall I got a Loaded Vanguard.

Great board, lovely flex, almost bounces off carves.






Just before the melanoma surgery put an end to fun for 6 weeks, a mate at work got an Evolve Carbon GT Electric board.
Tried hard not to like it, but rode it around the car park at work grinning like an idiot.




But compared to the Loaded Vanguard, it was a truck - heavy, lacking flex.
But fun....
Laid up following surgery, running out of things to look at and buy on the internet.
Discovered another brand of electric board, Boosted.
Essentially an electric Vanguard.
Ordered, waited, delays in customs, trip to Byron, surgery complications, back...
A delivery.



The electric Vanguard. Less range and power than the Evolve, but nice flex, plenty of speed.
Took a while to give it a decent go.



Have to admit to being hooked.
Another ride in May..



The previously terrifying underpass possible with brakes.



Really good fun, still a reasonable workout, back leg in particular feeling the strain.
Could not be more pleased with it.

Not quite as dear, but close to it.
Both look to be very good quality though.
Given the fun I get out of them, I can easily justify the expense.
To myself anyway.

So I'm pretty well hooked on the electric thing.
But I've got a reasonable quiver of conventional boards, in particular the 6'6" Hamboard Classic.
What to do?
It was a "no contest" when picking which board - non electric boards not even making it in to the Kombi.

I have a habit of waking in the middle of the night.
I think about things, read, search the internet for stuff.
I started to think of electrifying the Hamboard.
Searched for kits, couldn't find anything easy, or up to date.
So, I thought, strip the hardware from an existing board.
As the Evolve batteries and motors were more powerful, and the Hamboard was a big, heavy board, thought they would be more appropriate.
Decided on a Bamboo GTX, emailed "ask@evoke, telling them my plans.
Trent replied that a Bamboo GT would be better. I did have the idea of just getting the motor and batteries, but then decided a complete board would be better as I could then return everything to original if I wanted to.
Put in an order.....

Yes, I had put the camera next to a post next to the path.
There was a matching post the other side to stop the local residents driving up the path.
I was enjoying the feel of the tail sliding out, got a bit too enthusiastic, and slid the rear wheel the wrong side of the post.
No real harm done apart from some skin off, and it actually feels good to have hurt myself doing something stupid

Looks like Scotts Head will have to include yet another category ( after the 12' Search division)!

Went over to work today to catch up on stuff I should have done during the week when I was building and falling off skateboards.
Rode the Hamboard Evolve instead.
Injury from the fall was initial skin off, now bruising and sore down the left side that bounced off the concrete.
Note full protective gear in the car park .....
