************* Warning *************
It is not recommended to use a trapez
for windskating except for kiteskating.
The skateboard is the
most important part. When
investing money, do it here.
It is important that it has robust
wheels and trucks and it should
be about 80-120 cm long.
At shorter boards the
kick area gets scarce
for the manoeuvers, at
longer boards the tropic
becomes to large.
The mastbase can be fixed at the
board by means of powerjoint and
adapter (eg. F2 ). Just drill a hole in
the board and fix it with a reverse screw.
Big inline-wheels, eg. 80 mm diameter or
more, are recommended, because it's easier
to ride safe on a rough and uneven road. Place
broader wheels (5-8cm in width) on the back trucks
to avoid spin-outs. In order to prevent blocking of the
front wheels (eg. stones) it is advisable to place narrower
wheels (1.5cm in width) on the front trucks. Check it out !!
2 tips left: With that the skateboard can not tilt forward
or backward it is recommended to install the
trucks at the front- and backend of the board,
except you want to kick the board deliberately
(check Freestyle Moves).
To get on the board a better
liability it is advisable to
paste a rough griptape.
