    All boards have Indy's as they rule all, and Bones Wheels for the same reason except Gravity has Satori's cause they rock the carving and hills and shop deck has Autobahn cause I had em lying around and there small for street stuff. The orange wheels on the Zip Zinger are a dyed set of Bones experimental wheels that are like 80a and rock for slaloming cones and 70's style skating!
  • that red powell stencil is sick
  • ive modified some of my boards..changed plastics..wheels etc.. these are my favs and i switch between em at various times..for various reasons... i really love the grip on the hosoi.. took me forever!! check it yo!
