PostSubject: I need some help   Mon May 23, 2016 2:21 pm

After just 3 days of having an actual fingerboard, a kid in my history class asked to borrow it, claiming he new how to fingerboard. He then flicked it high into the air and slammed his hand down on it. The wheel cracked nearly in half. While it's still usable, I'm worried that it will eventually break completely before I'm able to order new wheels. Any advice?

go out and grab a tech deck from your local target/wal-mart. Keep that handy when you are in school or rolling anywhere when the situation may arise that someone who "used to tech deck" asks to see your setup. Hand em that, and be stress free!

Other than that, if your wheel breaks thats a bummer man. I used to always have a backup in the event of something happening. Now I have a quiver of stuff and its getting rediculous.

Thanks. I'm just gonna get some money and order a better set. They were Broken Knuckle so they're not exactly the best quality, just what I could afford. If u take it easy, these wheels should last another week or two.

Heard a few good things about these, might be worth picking up a set ready for when the wheel gives way!

I scooped a set of them a month or so ago, they are a nice hard wheels. Definitely a good cheap option.

Thanks I'll probably pick up a set of those. These wheels were brittle plastic, so it's really no wonder that they broke so easily. Still pissed at that kid though...

i swear every kid that tries to fingerboard for the first time feels the need to blast it into the air and then slam it the fuck down hmm ander wheels are definitely the best lowest priced quality wheels out right now so you cant go wrong using them as a replacement for now

Like I said, I didn't do it. He claims that it wasn't his fault and that I shouldn't have let him borrow it in the first place (which is probably true) so he won't pay for mew ones.

At this point just give them a good pimp slap and say "oh sorry, it's your fault for being an idiot around me."
