Almost two years of longboarding. I’ve been surfing for a while longer than that.
Sure you can! You can loosen the trucks by using a skate tool and turning the kingpin nut (the big one smack dab in the middle of the truck) to the left, as you please. If that doesn’t make the ride feel as “loose” as you’re trying to make it, you can also try softer bushings. Hope this helps!
Please take your negativity elsewhere. Skateboarding is definitely not Veggie Tales, it’s gnarly as hell! But I like to keep it positive and respectful because that’s the only way we can keep our sweet, sweet privilege of skating the beautiful open roads that we share with cars, neighbors, and authority. You can go be a shit if you want to - just don’t do it in my hood.
