    Okay, I added people, I have a question though, do you use a proppe tool like a Y-tool for tightening stuff and mounting decks or do you use just a spanner and alan keys or what?

    If there is a skate tool around I use it, but if I can find one and spanner etc will suffice.

    Hmm, I'm wondering weather to actually send it back, or man up and keep it even though it has half holes in, could they turn into cracks? I mean I doubt it but has this ever happened to anyone else? It turns to loose and the wheels go into the deck?

    I started simply with a shifter spanner from a shed at home, but I went skating with one of the staff at my local skate store and when he pointed out my trucks needed tightening, I said i'd break out the spanner when I got home, he pulled out his Skate Tool (It's a T shaped Y tool) and tightened them for me, and then told me to keep the Skate Tool.

    edit:

    I skate, My stance is Regular, I suck at skating goofy. I prefer skating Street because I never practiced Vert due to the bowl being full of BMX riders. Been skating since I was 9, But I stopped for 2 years in the time between when I snapped my first Folklore deck and bought my current Zero.

    Zero 9 ply deck
    Girl trucks (tight, how I like my bitch's ) with risers
    Modus black bearings
    My own scratched art on the grip tape.

    I skate in shorts because I hate the people that get around in skinny jeans.
    I live in Adelaide and my local Skate park is called "The Fields"
    I don't wear protective gear, I don't feel it's worth it. It feels clunky and I've only regretted not wearing it once, When I was learning to ollie and fell into the bowl.

    Zero deck has a shit load of 'pop'. Folklore deck feels soggy in comparison.

    Most advanced flip trick I can do is Varial Heelflip.

    I used to skate. Never really got too good at it but it was still fun. Fucked up my ankles too many times so now I dont like to skate as much.

    but I sure do love longboarding.
