Q:Will this board be right for me? Im 135 lbs and have some experience. I plan on using it for cruising, carving, and the occasional hill. I also want to learn how slide. Will this board be good for that? Ive also looked at the gravity makai and the dervish sama but im afraid it might be too flexy to take down some mellow hills. Length isnt an issue and i need a little concave, but do like the spray on grip that comes with the axis. What do you think?
A:Yeah it is a good board, but you might want to replace the wheels and maybe the bearings, if you want reliable bearings that can cruise smoothly at any speed, I would recommend Bones Reds. The wheels that comes with it are 78a's, a good pair of sliding wheels is at least 80a but the best for beginner's/little experienced riders would be 83a's. A good pair are Sim's "Snakes", they are a good brand that have been around since the 80's and have some of the most valuable/expensive wheels on the planet. but you can get the "snakes" for around 40/50 dollars...If that is too much, check out Sector 9 "butterballs". They have two sizes both at 80a. They come in 65mm and 70mm. The 65mms are obviously going to be cheaper for 38.00 dollars plus shipping. The deck and trucks aren't anything to worry about. I would recommend this for the occasional hill and the trucks are going to be just about all you need for carving. If they aren't good enough, I highly recommend Gullwing's Sidewinder's set. bye!
A:Yes, this will be a good set-up for all that. If you're still having problems getting it to slide you might just need to get some harder wheels.
