I'd say my deck and trucks. But im about to buy a pro 95 so i got that wrapped up:) also i feel if i had a solid place to ride like a lot of the people on here i would be able to step up my game, but there really isnt anything near me like what you guys have

couldnt agree more. its hard to progress when your limited by the terrain and the people around you. im hoping to push past that this season. hopefully i can get the money to make a proper course.

lol that is hilarious! I can't wait to ride it for the first time. Especially when everybody from college goes home for the weekend which makes the entire campus a ghost town, then it will be fun to ride around without having to worry about running into anyone. haha

Another addition for the excuse log, now I've heard it all. THe only thing holding Raoul Duke back is 2010, must be an intimidating number for some people.

Am I the only one held back due to sucking? I'd be a lot better if I didn't still second guess myself every time I hit a jump or rail.
