It’s no secret that old school and fun shaped boards are in right now. Some do it right, others blow it. This sick setup is a nice example of someone doing it right. Black Label, Indy, Spitfire and Bones are a sure combo for setup bliss. Here it is, this week’s Crispy New New courtesy of Derek from Colorado. You can put together this exact CNN, HERE!

Matt Hensley is a legend and so is Black Label. Plus the rad shape, great wood and killer graphic make this deck an instant classic. The Independent Stage 11 Standard Trucks are featuring new updated geometry. This is the new standard. You get superior turn and stability, better grind clearance, improved “no hang-up yoke” and a lightweight hollow body hanger. Only the best materials and made in the U.S.A. The 1/8” Bones Riser Pads do so much. A hard riser, sold in sets of 2, help to prevent wheel bite, vibration and board cracks. The crack you hate. The Spitfire Cardiel Editions are your Spitfire Classic formula with John Cardiel inspired graphics.
Bones Reds are dedicated to producing the highest quality skate bearings manufactured in China, inspecting them twice before shipping them to skaters. They offer the greatest combination of performance, durability and low cost in the industry, giving a near Bones Swiss performance at a fraction of the cost. Bones Reds are high performance precision ground bearings at an affordable price.
Skate Warehouse Bulk Philips Hardware is probably the best bang for your buck (and I’m not just saying that ’cause I work here). Skate Warehouse offers the essential, no frills set of 8. 8 nuts. 8 bolts. Black. Thanks for caring. Mini Logo 10.5” Black Griptape is all black. Mini Logo grip tape features a blend of silicon carbide grit sizes to optimize grip and durability, and sticks well in all weather conditions. Top performance, consistent quality and a price you can bank on. Top rate griptape.
