So the much lauded foiling room has pushed Street Sup away.
Our old threads are buried in there, but I might get a foil cut if I go in there to look.
So I'll do this here.
Feel free to comment, interject, abuse, ignore, or lurk.
I don't care!.

Originals.
Bought the very nice looking Pintail boards, Originals trucks, various wheels and bearings.
Liked them a lot, but compared to the Loaded boards, seemed to have a lot of rolling resistance.
In general, smaller wheels, different bearings.
The Loaded had some nice wheels, bigger, ordered the same.
Orangatang Kegel 80mm 80a Orange Longboard Skateboard Wheels from Basement Skate.
And some bearings that are in the small box to the right.
No idea about this stuff, but Internet shopping is your friend.
And bits are ridiculously cheap compared to SUP things.
Commenced the swap.


Removing the old wheels involved undoing a nut with the pictured shifter.
A socket would have been better.
These are the bearings.
You push them in to the middle of the wheels before you put the wheel on the axle thing.


Looked better instantly.


Off for a test.


Look at those wheels!
Much faster, smoother, but the Originals deck lacks flex.


OK, with 90 plus KG of Nozza on board, there's a bit of flex.
But feels much improved, although I could probably have ordered the board like this in the first place if I knew more...


Stand by.......

Nice setup nozza, at 80kg I find the 43 pintail of that model has too much flex probably because of a very narrow shape combined with 8ply deck though a 9 ply would better. Those orange orangatang big wheels are nice, soo stable and lots of bite.
