Is a mike Crum skateboard a good skateboard?

I assume its a world industries board? They used to be top of the range boards until they sold out * years ago and started making cheaper boards. the quality of the board is not what it used to be and the market for them has fell, and so you are better off going with another company if your looking for a great deck. If you just want a starter board then it's probably fine.

What kind of markers write on griptape for skateboards and where do they sell them?

Paint pens work the best. They are available at almost any crafts or art supply store and come in a wide variety of colors. There are two downfalls: one, these pens are a bit expensive, and to get a full array of colors can get pricey. Two, the paint can get think and clog your grip tape. If you go through boards fast, this won't matter, but if you want your grip to last you a long time, the paint may inhibit that.

Silver and gold sharpies also work pretty well, but take care to use them lightly or the tip will shred pretty quickly.

I've also seen light-colored chalk applied to grip, then covered with clear enamel spray to protect and preserve it. There aren't a lot of people doing chalk art, so this stuff stands out and if the art is cool, it's a sure head-turner.

Another alternative, depending on how creative you are: make stencils and use very light spray paint to decorate your grip. If you've seen Mouse or Spunk's work, or Jason Adams' stencil work, you may get some good ideas on multi-layer/multi-color stencils.

Is a maple skateboard brand good or not?

Maple decks are HORRIBLE. don't even contemplate getting a maple, I mean if you're getting it for a starter who weighs less than 80 pounds then it may be decent, otherwise no. Definitely not.

How much is the cheapest longboard?

OK so your looking for a cheap longboard, in the UK where i live you can get them cheap on line. But if you get them cheap, it isn't going to be a good longboard and will get chipped away very quickly. The cheapest longboard you can get is probably them kids one like them Ben 10 ones, so go for a brand the cheapest you will find is probably around £10, and they will not be very good, so just save up for a good one.

What would a good skate board brand name be?

First answer:

It's completely up to you, if you skate light and do more flips I'd recommend plan b, enjoi, 1031, or real. If you do more vert skating or tranny or big gaps, my favorite is krooked, but real is pretty good. If you skate all of the above? then real is pretty good.

My answer:

The brand of the skateboard has nothing to do with the kind of skateboarding you do. What matters is the construction of the board, which includes the materials, the concave, and the shape. The young man above is answering based on the perception of those brands that HE has, not based on real facts.

There are many good brands names in skateboarding. I say "good," which is subjective, based on the following criteria:

1. The quality of the products that the company puts out, based on standards in the industry.

2. The standing that brand has within its group of peers.

A company's peers in the skateboarding industry are a great standard of measurement. I bring these criteria up simply to illustrate that the following brand names are not simply just brands that I like, but that they are brands that over time have consistently proven to be high quality, based on the skateboarding industry's standards.

None of the brands in the first answer are "wrong." Plan B, Enjoi, Real, Krooked, 1031. Those are all good brands. In addition, I would add these:

Baker

Deathwish

Toy Machine

Foundation

Heroin

Birdhouse

Element (their pro stuff, not the cheap stuff)

AntiHero

Girl

Chocolate

Zero

Mystery

Slave

Alien Workshop

Habitat

Santa Cruz

Flip

Creature

Stereo

Black Label

Powell

Zoo York

World Industries

Blind

Almost

Darkstar

5boro

Alva Skates

Beer City

Blueprint

Consolidated

Dogtown

Hosoi

H-Street

Sector Nine Skateboards

Skull Skates

There are other brands as well. This is not meant to be a complete list of current brands. But, these are the majority of the brands who work with skaters to improve/perfect their products, participate in events that promote skateboarding, and support professional and amateur skateboarders.

What is the lightest skateboard you can buy?

I'd say go with an Enjoi deck, they are light and durable, but Mullen Uber Light is the actually lightest, but they are snapped fairly easy. Flip and Element are other good brands.

The Lightest Truck is probably going to be the Tensor Magnesium, and they are a mighty fine truck, but i broke a kingpin quite a few times. In the long run, it will cost you more that a pair of Theeve Tiax, which are new to the market, but are super light and durable. If you buy these, they feel a tad different than other trucks, but at the same time, they feel already broken in. Most people get used to them within a few days of buying them.

The lightest wheel out there right now is probably going to be the Spitfire Firelite. Some others are the Darkstar Light Knight Wheels (I've got those on my current setup, they are very nice wheels.) Hubba Rainbow wheels are very light also, my friend has them on his board, and he says they've held up well considering he's been skating on road, not park like normal.

Overall, my best luck has been with Enjoi deck, Theeve Tiax, and Darkstar Light Knight Wheels. Most skateboards are all preference though.

The lightest setup is (after being argued over continuously) is going to be the Mullen Uber Light, Tensor Magnesium, and Spitfire Firelite. Its a light setup, if you have money to buy a new deck every 2-4 weeks (or less).

Are Osiris shoes good for street skating?

I would use vans or dc shoes for street skating especially if you are wanting to get serious about it. also nike makes a good street shoe. but it is really what is comfortable with you and what you are comfortable skating in. but all these shoes have a different grip so pick the one that you really are comforable skating in.
