    ok I am going to be the nice guy...I always have used black magic grip tape, its got a nice grip and feel to it.

    Bones swiss bearing...nothing else...yes they are expensive but you pay for qulaity...and TRUST me these are quality I haven't had to buy new bearing in years

    for risers I just use dooks short stacks...they do just fine for me.

    I would also recommend shortys hardware

    ok....1st of all it doesnt matter what kind of wheels you get. it doesnt matter what kind of deck you get, as long as its not a nash or something. get a real deck. a "real" deck not the brand. it doesnt matter what brand of trucks you get. just make sure there not plastic. i prefer light trucks. yeah. it may matter a little in the bearings. my point is, i hate how all the skateboarders have to go crazy about brands. "if you gotta tony hawk board, your gay." fuck it, whatever works for you, get it.

    Don't get world industries shit, NEVER ever get risers(no need really just get higher trucks) and any bearings.
