I just got the hardware for the skateboard deck, threw everything on, and enjoyed an hour riding the board. I haven't spent an evening on a skateboard in over 20 years, and it was a blast. I can't believe how the reverse kingpin trucks carve (I got Paris V2 180s), they're so much different than the old school Venture trucks I used to ride in the 80s. A great way to stay in rhythm for surfing. Here's a few shots of the finished board. I'll have to make a few more of these.
