Let’s face it, whatever board you’re riding is the right one. As long as you’re rolling, then you’re doing it right. But when the sad time comes that you have to put your old deck to rest, or get rid of those wheels that have just one too many flat spots, there are a lot of choices out there for what to get next. Gear Check is here to show you what your favorite pros and ams are riding just in case you need a little inspiration for your next set up.

A few very prominent things come to mind when you think of Neen Williams. Dread locks, Heel Flips, and Tie dye do not, however, define this man. We linked up with Neen at Stoner Park in L.A. to see what kind of set up he was standing on and to see a few of those legendary Heel Flips. He set up a crispy new whip for us, but kept his trucks and wheels gently used. Must be all the flick in that new Shake Junt grip that helps boost his flipping power to the next level. Neen is riding for Deathwish, Altamont, Thunder, Satori, Shake Junt, Stance, and Loud Headphones and skating better than ever!

This Deathwish Gang Logo Tie Dye board should come with a disclaimer. If you'r prone to any kind of psychedelic flashbacks or epilepsy you might want to look away. It seems like looking down at some kind of over the top flip trick could send you to the E.R. with a seizure or right back to Woodstock depending on your situation. Luckily for us Neen can keep his composure during 360 flips.

Thunder trucks make a gaggle of hot color ways to match any deck you might be setting up. In this case the orange and blue might turn in to a lovely explosion of color under your feet, and mixed with the right color of curb, you could end up with a rainbow of grinds. Been keeps with the colorful vibes of his tie dye stunt wood and paints a pretty picture with his set up.

Satori has been making wheels for hippies for years now, but don't think that you can't ride them if you're an ignorant bald head like the person writing this. Just like Neen I have had months of fun on a set of Satoris and I do not partake in any kind of green substance (maybe a little Kale here and there), because these wheels primarily promote positivity and tailslides. Neen is riding the legendary Danny Fuenzalidas pro wheel, but he also has his own wheel on Satori so grab either of them and have an irie day!
