No really a stretch for the BBS since it's all knowing and all seeing. I need input on a skate board for a beginner. Seems smarter to me to spec and build it with components that'll last and are not crap. I want to be at least a bit in the know before I go to the local skate shop. What width should I look for? Wider better? What trucks and wheels should I get. Not for me, I don't bounce anymore, I splat and shit hurts for day instead of an hour or two. It's for the kid and she's been after us to get her one for a few years now. I wanted to get her a Black Flag My War or Everything Went black graphic deck but I don't want to give Ginn more cash (and they're sold out). Thanks!
