Grinds are dangerous and cool. Smooth polyurethane wheels, like waves rolling beneath a Malibu sunset, soothe the soul while thrash metal trucks provide something different, something more violent, more powerful, more shark week.
My last board, a Creature inspired by the movie Hesh Law, sliced the crap outta my hand with its ground down razor-sharp tail. Thankfully my girlfriend, saving future lacerations, intervened with an early Father's Day present - a new skateboard (thanks Eewee). This time around, inspired by the film Pretty Sweet I went with a Guy Mariano deck, which of all things has a picture of Jaws on it! It seems that everything, even razortail, happens for a reason.
