Adventure Time with Pam: NYC – Ohio

I had a great Time in NYC with the homies. I was supposed to get there for the famous Broadway Bomb but there was a mistake with my dates, this didn’t stopped me from having a great time around and skate all day, but most important, shoot photos and document what was happening around me. Thanks DBS for making it happen and to all the homies who got stoked on my visit and made sure i had a good time skateboarding and meeting the city In this first post i share some of the skate we had!

My first day around was with my good friend Keyla Denisse from Puerto Rico, we took the subway to meet up with some friends

Rad Tad, The Darkness, and Epilepsy.

Tad sent us this photo of him and all his steez.  It appears that it was taken by Dawn Moisanen… wish I could have gone and taken photos out at the freeride!!!! GRRRR.  Man, Tad seriously has some legit style.

New Black Caliber 44’s and 50’s in stock!!!! This photo just looked trippy so I kept it

Here you can actually tell that its black haha.  You know you want some of the Darkness.

Holy Scatman Crothers batman, Loaded Slide Gloves are now a sweet shade of “Epilepsy Yellow/Green!”

Heres a little review for you guys!

So what is it about this board that makes it so good?  If you said “everything,” then right you are!  Heres one thing I love that Rayne did with this board.  They took the pintail shape and made it one of the best boards out there.  I dont know about you guys but I really dont see too many folks out there doing serious DH on pintails, unless of course they are on the Rayne Avenger.  Enough of why I think this board scores brownie points, lets talk tech.

Concave.  That word sums this board up pretty well.  I know the same technology and techniques are applied to other boards but the way the concave works on this deck is mind-bottlingly amazing as Chazz Michael Michaels would say.  Your front foot stands on a very large flat platform.  It gives you tons of room to move around as needed and situate your feet according to your personal riding style.  You know how with some other boards the drop interferes or the W concave comes up just a little too far?  Well you wont experience that problem on this gift from the heavens.  I feel like I want to start calling everyone at Rayne… “Rayne-Gers.” Corny but I love corny shizz.

Anywho, now lets talk about that “pleasure dome,” which to those who do not know, is Rayne’s W-Concave found on many of their decks.  The spacing it has is flawless… I want to say they did some creepy feet testing and found the perfect size, I dont know how they did it but I have asked so many people to check out the avenger under their feet and see how it feels. 11 times out of 10 they say, “Its so comfortable.” haha.  But its the truth, the pleasure dome is sure to get your jollies off!

As far as wheelbase goes heres what you can do.  28.25, 29, 29.25, and 30 inches.  All you really need to know is 30 inches cause thats the money wheelbase right there!!!  I cant speak for everyone cause every individual is going to have a different preference but Hot Jeezy the 30 inch is perfection.

Board construction is well, its Rayne, and how can you hate on Rayne.  The Rayne-gers at Rayne arent nerds but describing them as nerds is a good way to explain why their boards are so good.  Its basically some of the brightest dudes out there that just love to skate. So they use all their superhuman brainpower to make the best boards they can.  If they were any type of nerd, they would be skate nerds and is that really a bad thing to be?  Not in my opinion.

If you want to go fast, and im talking Ricky Bobby fast, and you want to have control then you have got to try the Rayne Avenger.  I feel like people have been forgetting about it lately and it is definitely a board that needs to remain in the circuit.  Besides at the end of the day you can hang it on your wall with its built in tail-hole-thingy.

If I were to set this board up without breaking the bank I would put Caliber 44 degree trucks on it, Rayne 1/4th flat Next Level risers, vicious griptape, bones super reds bearings, and 78a 72mm Venom Cannibal wheels.  Now that would be a fun speed setup that would be rad for freeriding once the wheels broke in!
