Episode Summary

In this episode Tony reveals his new setup and the group analyzes and discusses three excellent freestyle videos recommended by Matt (see below), Tony leads a discussion on breaking down tricks for maximum learning, and Bob leads the boys down the twisted and wrongful path of making predictions about the upcoming World Roundup contest in Canada.


  • 00:00 - Intro begins with "Macho Man" Randy Savage: "What it is, is what it is! And tonight, in just a few seconds, if you can wait, because I can't" followed by Alex DeLarge from "A Clockwork Orange" saying "Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited."
  • 00:17 - Music starts in background.
  • 00:46 - Welcome to episode 2 of the Freestyle Podcast with Bob Loftin from Dallas Texas, Tony Gale from the center of England, and Matt Gokey from New Hampshire.
  • 02:12 - Tony gets a new freestyle board and his first pair of Seismic wheels. The Seismics are really F**king impressive. They slide just the right amount, but don't feel hard. They are honestly some of the best freestyle wheels he's ever ridden. On par with Moska Wheels. Seismic and Moskas are the best he's ever had.
    • 03:16 - Tony got the Per Canguru deck and is very impressed with the wood. Boards he's gotten in the past from other places seemed to be lifeless and damp. The Decomposed wood is really good.
    • 04:19 - Bob adds that "Witter's wood is lively and rigid".

  • 04:34 - Tony's talks about his truck setup: Tony is currently using Tracker RaceTrack-X's with the Per Canguru dec. The X's turn well. The RaceTrack "S" is stable and the "X" are for slalom so they turn really well. They are also quite high, which is Tony's preference. Matt also likes high trucks, but Bob likes low trucks. The high trucks give you so much more stability in rail and more clearance for wheelies.
    • 05:30 - Matt notes that Railflips seem to spin faster with lower trucks. When Matt skates the Bullets, the ride is much lower so had to do the Railflips differently. The Ace's seem to pop up higher which Matt likes.

  • 07:00 - Topic switches back to the Seismic wheels and how much better quality the urethane is on them.
