comment about SKOA: The STREAM 7 is my favorite truck because I always feel safe on it on any speed. It is really define and direct but also predictable at slides. I’m riding every hill with the same baseplate and bushings and it’s always perfect. Riding 120km/h or standies with 40km/h –no problem!
how you got into longboarding: I started with a friend from my neighborhood when I was 13 and we were riding some steep small roads –always without protection. When I was 18 we happened to go to a race in France where we saw for the first time how it is to ride real downhill. After that I started skating more and faster… and never stopped until now.
