Here at Skatefurther we pride ourselves on getting the best reviews from the best people. Who better to ask for a review of his favourite truck than Andrew Andras – Ultraskate World Record holder. When I got into distance skating I remember thinking a longboard truck is just a longboard truck, right? Reverse kingpin, some bushings, about 150 to 180mm in length. All the same!

So you have your gear, your at your destination and your ready to start pumping. GOOD! Lets begin!

10. Put ice in your camelpak.

Darrian Balongie another long distance skateboarder taught me this trick (May he R.I.P) This will provide you with cold water for about 3 – 5 hours depends of your location. This is because as you will be skating for majority of the day your back with get sweaty pretty fast and therefore the heat with move into your pack where your water bladder/camelpak is. Doing this cools you down and keeps your water cold obviously.

9. Carry a lot of extra food and water.

Because you never know when or where you will next find somewhere with food and water, sometimes you can spend days in remote reigons and skating all day everyday burns a lot of calories and you will be eating upwards of 5 times a day (with desert for every meal). Stay away from sugar and eat high calorie foods.
