Went ahead and got a pair of Loaded Slide Gloves (V6) to get into this whole freeriding thing.
Naturally, I adjusted my main setup to even allow something like a slide, and gave it its original look back (as in, Pink Powerballs)
And the side-effect of this motion is probably the punchline of this whole operation- a donk nickel board. 😄
Once again, most of the gear and parts via Uncle Funky’s.
