    Cool Pics of you riding your oldschool wide boards

    Thought it might be cool to have a thread with Silverfish members
    on their oldschool pig or fish style boards

    This was taken at the Pala (San Diego, Ca) skatepark in October 2010
    Fantastic park on my Caballero board.

    I have a bunch of skateboards

    Isn't this what you're supposed to put in a signature?

    Last shortboard I felt comfortable on (32" MSK Shortline 2), back when this board wasn't "oldschool", but state of the art, 1979:



    Tailtap on 38" MSK Longshot, 1980:



    Tailtap on 38" Longshot, 2002:



    Current version of the Longshot, now 40" with nose kick instead of flat snub nose, 2004:

    MSK does the best tailtap to tailslide. I dig it when you do those!

    Hey, there's another butt shot for you to ogle, CRASS.

    Imma give this thread an ol' bumperoonie. I would like to start oldcshool skating any suggestions?

    I plan on using my old 129mm Independent trucks,
    1/2" soft old risers
    Possibly some OJ wheels, take a look at the links.
    OJ Wheels: Wheels: 55mm Hot Juice Hot Juice Mini 78a Wheels
    Wheels
    -------------
    OJ Wheels: Wheels: 75mm Thunder Juice 78a Wheels

    Also I plan on buying a Bamboosk8 deck
    Blank Pool Deck - Bamboosk8

    I know I could get like a Santa cruz or a Powell but i'd like to stick with my bamboo theme i've kept going over the past 3yrs.

    I used to have a oldschool board that was donated by my kind neighbors. It was a reissue that's from the 90-2000's so it wasn't the real thing you know. It had cheap 2-3" trucks that sent me flying after carving on them because I cracked the pivot point, The old wheels I pitched because I rode them till they were shot. And the board eventually died on me, so all I left with is memories and riser pads.

    I would like to start again any tips?

    Additional details: I am a parkboarder and I ride my boards on anything from miniramps to pools to rails/boxes.
    I like big wheels: push less, roll more.

    Love all these pics!

    Do these count?
    My friend "kook" and I on our pos homemade ramp back in '82 or '83. I was riding an Alan "Ollie" Gelfand model. Loved that board. The lower one is more recent, riding on an Afroman deck at Pedlow skatepark.

    If you're going to be riding parks, those wheels are both too soft. You should be looking for at least 95a's. Also, one set is too small & the other is too large. Stick with something 58mm to 63mm for best results.

    Indy 129's are going to be too narrow for that 10" wide deck, unless you go with a wide offset wheel. You also won't need anymore than 1/4" of riser, at the most.

    Hmmmm...
    I'm going to haft to think about that, I planned on getting 149mm Indys or Thunders for my 8.25" parkboard anyways. Would that work? Or would I haft to get 169mm indys?

    Depends on your wheel choice, but probably 169's.

    Or else, get my 149's and some OJ's. And I could switch out my wheels according to the type of terrain? It would take me a little while to get new trucks,board,bearings and wheels. well I will save my oldschool ideas for later in life and just get some new trucks soon, possibly wheels? also.
