I don't have exact pressures but I run softer pressure for more surface area on the sand while riding.
I'll have to check next time I have a gauge...

Higher pressure seems to make the tire cut into the sand...but too low and the tires don't track (side-load) very well.

Oh...I'm also running 9 inch tires too...

Interested to here input on anyone elses opinion on super light Trucks/Wheels.

i'm not interested in super light trucks.
skate trucks are the lightest and most wobbly
channel trucks are more stable and heavy.
revo trucks are the best but are no longer available.
check out the trampa web site for fruity trucks.

the current unofficial record is around 52mph for landboard
i'm sitting just under 40 mph

tie pressures? i use big wheels so pressures are low.
