I have been part of this forum for little over a month now, and have been amazed by everyones build and tips n’ tricks for building a board.
I had some school life to get over. I did spend a little hours here and there during my school but now that its all done, I can spend a few more hours.
Board: I was able to make a design for my board and sent it off to a store on Etsy named TravelSkateBoards. (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TravelSkateboards?ref=l2-shopheader-name) They were able to make my design. 9ply.
Trucks: I ordered these trucks initially: http://www.zumiez.com/caliber-ii-fifty-184mm-satin-blue-longboard-trucks.html They were really nice, but too bad they shipped these in a flimsy crappy box with zero padding whatsoever.
I then ordered a pair of trucks from here. https://www.amazon.com/Caliber-Longboard-Trucks-Wheels-Package/dp/B01IJ8JZAK/ref=sr_1_28?s=outdoor-recreation&ie=UTF8&qid=1482362610&sr=1-28&keywords=caliber+raw+truck
Put them onto my board and:
I just received a special delivery this afternoon and it turns out it was Zumies trucks. I didn’t think i reorderded them so I called customer service and turns out their warehouse mistakened the receive of return as a output delivery and resent them to me. Rep asked me, “I will fix this for you no problem, we will give a full refund, just dont send them back. Is that fine with you?” OH hell yeah.
So now I got this:https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-vzR1p5GCJ2A/Vh1u13HxUtI/AAAAAAAAARM/GwbmZ4b6Dus/w800-h800/shadow_king_by_x_spirit.jpg
Motor: I organized a group buy for SK3 Motors directly from the manufacturer. It is in the payment process at the moment, but soon I will get them within January. Saved some money doing a groupbuy, and saved many other users some money that aren’t in a rush.
Battery: Am thinking about making a li-ion pack. Specs are still unknown.
Will post more details as I get more things.
