    Anyone else here into cruising, slaloming,sliding, carving, dancing, or downhill riding? What kind of setup do you ride?

    I enjoy highspeed downhill however there is only a couple small hills to use in FL about 280ft above sea level 50 is the max speed. We also hit parking garages. I do alot of cruising, pumping, and sliding in the city.

    I've got a sector nine with randall II trucks that i take all over the place. Lots of highspeed downhill when i go up north and just cruising/ hitting up parking garages at home.

    Lots of fun, sucks when you eat it going real fast though.

    I got a landyachtz evo with 83mm flywheels and/or big zigs, venom bushings and a 35*,50* randall 180 base plate setup. I use this for downhill.

    My sector nine wedge with original trucks and 70mm grippins is for cruising and sliding.

    I have a sector nine cosmic with a kick tail that's good for carving/pumping, it's got soft yellow bushings, gumball wheels, and randal 150's.

    Then I just picked up an Earthwing mystery model. I'll be putting crail 180mm trucks and 70mm orangutang in heat wheels, and making this my new top mount downhill board.

    Here's some footage of us skating.

    Just got into longboard a joke to pass time at work. We have a 5 story parking lot me and a friend would just cruise down lat at night. Now more and more people are joining is. Funny and fun to pass time at work.
