Hi everyone, I am getting back into skating after 18 years, and I bought a cheap Tony Hawk complete board online for £30.
I’m happy with having a bit of a basic board just for using the local skate park. But it arrived in the mail today and none of the wheels spin for more than 5 seconds, and one of them barely at all!
Maybe serves me right for buying cheap but as I say, not looking for top quality. I was never a great skater, I just wanna be able to go up and down the smaller halfpipes, hop around the boxes, hopefully learn to grind the rails… maybe one day learn to kickflip!
I just want to know whether people here think it would make sense to buy some slightly better bearings?
This is the spec:
APEC 3 bearings
54mm 95a PU injection wheels
Aluminium & PU cast bushings - trucks
7 ply hardrock maple concave deck
