Skateboarding? Related Questions

Asked By Avinue,Last Answer By onionmaster At 2011.03,1 Answers

I want to start skateboarding, and would really appreciate being told everything you know(:
I'm not really worried about how to do anything etc. right now, I'm more focused on quality of things, like which brands are better etc.

Should I pay more for good bearings, or does it matter?
I'm guessing high, medium and low trucks means how far it is from the ground to the deck, but which would be best?
Whats the best mm to get for wheels?

And anything else along those lines you can tell me.
thanks in advance :3

Questions about skateboarding...?
Asked By Flier - 泡騰,Last Answer By Zachh Morris At 2011.05,1 Answers

I know this isn't the place to ask this, but I was hoping some of you might know something about skateboarding, too.

I'm kind of thinking of trying to learn skateboarding when I start college. I've been snowboarding for a long time and am pretty advanced at that... I'm not sure if that would make it easier or harder to learn skateboarding after snowboarding.

Anyway, I would just really appreciate some advice on products and things. Like, I plan on "building" a board from But I'm not sure about shoes. I've heard its better for girls to get guys shoes because they wear down slower, but my shoe size is pretty small (6), which would be 4 in guys... but that brings me down to the kid's shoe sizes. lol, would it be a bad idea to get kids shoes? I actually buy kids shoes a lot because they're cheaper and fit me fine, I'm just not sure if they would be as good quality as far as actually skating shoes go. I'm mostly looking for shoes that have good grip and don't wear too quickly.

Also, what size of board should I get (or wheels? or high/medium/low trucks?)? I'm about 5'4" and weigh around 107 lbs, if that helps. I'd like to learn some flip tricks and things, but would also enjoy just cruising around.

Thanks in advance :)

Emerica or Lakai? (skateboarding)?
Asked By Jason,Last Answer By hello At 2011.05,1 Answers

Hey I'm stuck! I have no idea which pair of shoes to get as my next shoes, like I've never skated either, only Etnies, Converse and Vans. I want a shoe that lasts longer, and Emerica's are more expensive than Lakai's but it's only a few bucks haha. So has anyone ever skated both of these? If so, which one is better? And if you add which model you've skated it'd be really appreciated. And yes, I do tricks and down gaps so which one is better?
