Loaded Bhangra and a new vape!

Loaded's new board "The Bhangra" is a beast! Upon first opening the box my first impression was that it was heavy. I've never really ridden boards longer than 40 inches before and didn't even think of the obvious fact that with more length comes more weight. Oh well. The only thing this affects is carrying it around campus, which is why its not my campus cruiser!

My current setup is the one recommended by Loaded, which is with 180 paris trucks and yellow stims. I haven't changed a thing about it, even the stock bushings! Straight out of the box this thing ripped. Stand up slides were a little more difficult than usual but the yellow stims still make 180s a breeze. I have the flex 2 and weigh 170. The flex 2 is very comfy. I'd be a little worried at anything 30+ mph but anything less is a blast. The kicktails really bring this board to life! Manuals, shove-its, and g-turns are easy once your dialed them in. The added length also makes any sort of dancing pretty easy, but obviously it's not a full size dancing board.

If it wasn't for the price I would recommend this board for anything but downhill. Free riding is possible but a little scarier at speed. The board is really comfortably to ride on and thanks to the rocker my feet are always locked in. The grip design is pretty bad ass too!

On another note I recently purchased a magic flight launch box vape. At first I thought it sucked because I wasn't getting high, then I realized I was hitting it to hard and watched some how to vids. For such a small vape this thing works very well. The batteries don't last long though, so if you're looking to cheif mad bowls away from a power source then this vape isn't for you. After a shitty night of trying to figure out what I was doing wrong (without just looking it up of course) I was determined to make my investment work. Equipped with two freshly charged and still slightly warm batteries, a fat sack of some dank chronic, and my mflb, I went to work on grinding up some bud. A video I watched showed that a slower hit procured a much better rip. Needless to say that this worked. I vaped an entire trench (bowl of the mflb), loaded another, and immediately vaped that too. Next thing I know I'm hurpin and derpin to no end. I LOVE MY MFLB!

  2. I used a Longboard in Montreal to bring all my groceries back home. In fact, there's a video of my buddies board where he nearly got killed while I was doing that:

  7. Once used one of these guys on a car -- didn't have a spare, so I jacked up the corner of the car and wedged my friend's longboard under it to limp home. Worked like a charm :)
