I have been a board rider my whole life (any kind, but mostly skating), but only recently got into sliding.

I live in the City Bowl and skate nearly daily.

My current setup at the moment is:

Sector 9 Natasha (sprayed matt black)
Gullwing Charger Trucks (top mount, not drop through, I prefer the extra leverage)
flat washer boardside with FAT ANT a88 barrel bushing and the Charger stock bushing (cone) at roadside.  (I might have swapped the stock boardside with the roadside bushing + washer.)
Sector 9 Abec 7 bearings
Sector 9 Butterballs wheels
and last but not least small riser pads.

I skate from Rugby road (top of Molteno) to the Station, we have a nice route figured out with little traffic, even during the day, and a couple of nice sections one can bomb. 

I am hoping to meet more serious sliders soon!

One last thing, I will admit at the moment I am a bit skate/slide obsessed.  Hours not spent skating, are spent researching/watching skate/slide videos, gear, setups, etc.. you get the point.

Slide with you soon hopefully!
