Description

The Earthwing Miniglider longboard skateboard is a super wide mini designed with all disciplines in mind. It is 32.75" long with a varying wheelbase of 17.5" - 19".

Depending on your weight you might get some flex out of it. At 9.25" wide you are going to be totally locked in and hooked. The Earthwing Miniglider longboard skateboard is a shrunken down version of the Superglider.

The Earthwing Miniglider is the sweetest mini on the streets. You finally have a mini that can do it all. Ollies and fliptricks are effortless. The wide platform makes slides feel super smooth.

The shorter wheels base than the Earthwing Superglider longboard skateboard makes it more agile for moving around large crowds. It's especially good for campus riding and it's great for quick shots to the store or from your car to the local garage.

Start with putting on some Independent 169mm trucks and 65 Fat Free. The Earthwing Minigdlider Longboard skateboard will work with Randal 180 and Paris 180 Longboard trucks. Bennett 5.0 or 6.0 trucks will work wonders as well.

Independent fans read this:

Longboarders never imagined a standard king pin skate truck could turn as well as a reverse king pin truck. A few tweaks to your Independents and your trucks turn like mad. Just check out the bushing upgrade we suggest.

Looking to upgrade your bushings on your Independent trucks that get you the best performance out of them for your new longboard, then we have the be combo for you. You will want to purchase a pack of Venom DH Barrels that correspond to your body weight, riding style, and stiffness of your board.

You will also need to purchase one pack of Bones Hard Core Bushings for the top of the trucks. You will want to use the smaller of the four bushings that come in the pack!! Important note: You must choose a harder combination of bushings for more speed and a stiffer board.

This little guy is an amazingly versatile deck. It has yards of clearance for big wheels, and can pretty much handle any terrain. The composite weave will extend the life of the deck, and the flex memory greatly, and keeps it uber light. I am very happy with it, and can't think of a way to improve it. That is unusual for me, everything can always be improved somehow, I just haven't figured it out with this one yet. It's pretty perfect.
