    • Shipping to me (depends on how much other stuff I order at the same time, figure $5)
    • "Free" shipping to the customer (min $10, and almost always more)
    • Sturdy box for deck ($3)
    • "Free" griptape for the customer ($2-$3 my cost)
    • Discount if I have to price match, move old graphics, etc

    Decks are so fashion/trend-driven that what's hot one week can become old news next week. When you have to compete with people who are not actually trying to make a profit selling boards, it's not hard to see why I made the decision I did.

    Makes sense, i can see how that profit margin would be unappealing.

    Got a set of the crimson Paris 180mm's today because Landyachtz was out of the black/black ones. Also got Hammer Tape griptape and Bear 8mm bearings which I found out gives my hands a horrible rash if I get the lube on them. First impressions of the Paris are that there is a ton of play in the trucks. Really sloppy feeling to them. Traded out the stock bushings with the Sabre X-Type 86a barrel boardside and cone roadside. They almost threw me off my board when I started to carve on them. TONS of rebound. Looking to get ASSAPS and Amish washers once they're back in stock.
    I like to chew on bushings.


    I don't chew on bushings anymore.

    Not exactly a purchase, because I found them in the garage, and my dad said I could keep them. But now I don't have to worry as much about speed tears in my halfshell.

    I did track last year. I was a long and triple jumper. I had to drop it this year because Lax was going to be a lot more often. I kind of miss it.

    Yeah, but my feet grew in the 2 weeks it took for nike to ship them, so I sent them into exchange for a larger size. But nike decided to wait 3 weeks to tell me that they couldn't exchange them because they didn't have my size. And now almost every website is pretty much out of my size (10.5) except for eastbay, so I got lucky. But I'm kinda pissed at nike's customer service.
