Gumballs aren't a new wheel, of course, but I'd never really payed much attention to them. Tried them out on the mild but rough hill I usually skate, and they were quite nice. Video here. Prepare for amazement. hahahahah

Guinness 50 cone World Record - Unofficially broke my old record.

I got to try the 50 cones @ 1.6m (5ft 3ins) Guinness World Record distance for the 1st time since October last year when I recorded 12.83 sec. I had previously done it off a short run up in 11.22sec, but last week I did it in 10.81 sec in the dry, again off a short run in.The new deck definately made it happen.
One day I'll have a go on a good surface, dry sunny weather and a long run in....I can dream can't I?
