Love to hear what you guys are using. In detail, of course.

I ride tranny probably more than I LDP/longboard, but I love both.

I'm running an 8.25" popsicle (like Black Label or Habitat) with 139 Indy's and Rainskates 98a 57mm wheels.   Rainskates offers, for me, the best all around performance on slick dusty indoor ramps and outdoor 'crete.  SPF's are superior on outdoor concrete, but the Rainskates are THE wheel for me.

I skated in the 70's and quit right as the pigs were coming out, my last board then still didn't have concave.   Thus, the wider popsicles fit me well rather than the wider old school shapes.  I guess I'm old old school.   Still have my Tunnel Waldo Autry Clould model from '76 and my Caster from '78.

Old Man Army Wrex Cook 8.25" x 32.75", 15" wheelbase
Ace 44's
Bones SPF Slims 56mm

Flip Lance Mountain Vato Skull 9" x 32.78", 15" wheelbase
Indy 149's
Bones SPF Slims 60mm

Deckcrafter Pool Cue Woody 10" x 33", 16.25" wheelbase
Ace 66's
Bones SPF Slims 58mm

I ride the Lance Mountain the most.  Pool Cue when I'm feeling nostalgic but mostly in bigger bowls or pools.  Wrex Cook in parks that have more of street layout.  I mostly ride skateparks and rarely ride street.

Just returned to skating after 30+ years away, but here are the setups I've ended up with after 3 months. I skate the park like a bowl/ditch

Park board:
Tunnel Baldy Pipeline deck (32"x8.5" 17"wb)
http://tailtap.com/tunneldecks.html
Indy 129's (wedged 1/8" and on 1/8" riser)
60mm Abec Noskoolz 88a
Bones med bushings

I really like this deck but I had to widen the wheel wells.
Im planning on different wheels soon. Probably Powell-Peralta Bowl Riders in 95a.

'Long' board for the park
Sector 9 Corker deck 32"x8.5"
http://www.muirskate.com/longboar...board-Skateboard-Deck-w-Grip.html
9" Gullwing Charger 50* wedged 1/4" (no risers)
Powell-Peralta G-bones (64mm/97a)
Venom DB purple boardside/yellow roadside. (87a/85a)

I shortened the wheel base 1" to stiffen the flex for riding in the park.

This board is also my pumper/pusher until I get something more dedicated. I move the rear truck to it's original position, put some 70mm wheels on it, and go to a 85a/87a bushing setup. At some point I may make it a drop through if I start doing more LDP.

This is still my go-to for parks:  Shitbird Hessian 33". Indy 169's, Powell Bowl Bombers 64mm.   I like the concave on it so much it was my slalom deck the last few years as well (after switching up the gear of course.)
