Aaron ‘Jaws’ Homoki – Worlds Biggest Ollie

aaron homoki biggest ollie ever skateboard tulsa oklahoma blind longboard

Birdhouse skateboards’ Aaron “Jaws” Homoki has made quite a name for himself over the last couple of years. He’s an all-terrain am that can spin 540s on transitions of almost any size. He’s also a street stunt man willing to jump off of anything regardless of height or physical longevity (have you seen his Thrasher cover yet and the footage to prove it?). Under the wing of skateboarding’s most recognizable icon, Tony Hawk, Jaws has been groomed and geared for his chance as a professional skater. Next month he’ll finally get his shot. Look for an online pro video part and a board with his name on it sometime in July.

Recently, the IPath team tried to do a demo at NJ Skateshop in Princeton, New Jersey but Mother Nature thwarted their plan. Being the consummate showman, Jaws proceeded to give the kids a one-man show in the rain before sitting down to talk to ESPN Skateboarding.

Looking to Purchase a Skateboard?

To build your own custom board, you will need to purchase the following:

  • (1) Skateboard Deck
  • (2) Trucks – Most trucks are sold individually, so you will need to purchase a quantity of two. Read the description of the trucks you want to see if they are sold individually or in pairs.
  • (1) Set of Wheels – Wheels are sold in sets of four (see note below regarding wheel size).
  • (1) Set of Bearings – Most bearings are sold in complete sets so you should only need to purchase one set of bearings (this will include 8 bearings, 2 per wheel). Some bearings are sold individually (see product description), in which case 8 are required for a complete set.
  • (1) Hardware set – This is the nuts and bolts required to attach the trucks to the deck, and is generally sold as a complete set.  Either 7/8″ or 1″ will fit.  If you use risers, add the riser thickness to this (for example, when using 1/4″ risers, a 1 1/4″ hardware set will work).
  • (1) set of Risers – Risers are optional.  They go between the deck and the trucks.  If you purchase large diameter wheels, then you may need risers to raise the board from the wheels so that the wheels don’t come into contact with the board (see note below regarding wheel size).  Risers also help prevent vibration problems if you ride on very rough surfaces.  Risers are sold as sets or individually (see product description).  If purchased individually, you will need to purchase two.
  • (1) sheet of Griptape – This is essential to keep your feet securely on the board.

Deck Sizes:

Traditional skateboard decks are the most common and measure under 33 inches.  These are the typical skateboards used for street and trick riding.  Longer decks are for longboarding and special purposes.

Most decks range from 7.5 to 8.25 inches in width.  Width is a matter of choice – younger childern do best with narrower boards (under 8 inches).  Trick riders also often use narrow boards.

Deck length is also a matter of choice, though shorter boards are generally for younger children.

Shorter boards include the words “Micro”, “Mini” or “Mid” in the description.

  • Micro indicates a board about 27.5″ long, meant for ages 5 and younger.
  • Mini indicates a board about 28″ long, meant for ages 6 to 8.
  • Mid indicates a board about 29″ long, meant for ages 9 to 12.

All other boards are typical full size boards (usually about 32 inches long).

About Trucks:

Common truck widths range from 4.75 inches to 5.5 inches.

Truck width is generally determined based on the deck width you choose, however some riders prefer a slightly wider or narrower truck.

  • 5 inch trucks work well with decks 7.25 to 8 inches wide
  • 5.25 inch trucks work well with decks 8 to 8.5 inches wide.

Different truck profile heights are also available.

  • “Low” trucks are used for extra stability and for tricks, and are designed for smaller wheels.
  • “Mid” is the standard (and most common) height.
  • “Hi” trucks are used for crusing, and are designed for larger wheels.

Wheels:

Wheels choices are diameter, hardness and color.  All are a matter of preference.

  • Most skaters will use 52 to 55 mm diameter wheels for street riding, with 52 (or lower) more commonly used for younger skaters.
  • 56 to 60 mm wheels are more commonly used for vert and ramp skating.
  • In order to ensure your wheels don’t come into contact with your board (wheel bite), we recommend a maximum wheel size of 51 mm for Low Trucks, 53 mm for Mid Trucks and 55 mm for Hi Trucks. In any case, the maximum wheel diameter can be increased by about 5 mm when using 1/8″ risers.

Hardness ratings indicate the hardness (or softness) of the wheel material.  A higher number indicates a harder material.  Harder wheels will give more action, but will also hit harder when you land.  Softer wheels give a smoother ride.

  • Use a soft grade, such as 87A, for cruising or for very rough surfaces.
  • For street riding, use a harder material, such as 95A for rougher paving, or 97A for smoother paving.
  • A rating of 100A is very hard and has less grip (less sticky).  Be careful with these if you skate on slick surfaces as they will easily slip.

Hardness rating is not always indicated – unless you are familiar with a specific wheel, stick to the ones that indicate the hardness.

Bearings:

Any bearings will work with any skateboards.

Some bearings indicate ABEC rating.  There are 5 classes; ABEC 1, 3 , 5 , 7 and 9.  Higher ABEC ratings indicate a higher machining tolerance of the ball bearings.

Please don’t place too much emphasis on ABEC number, because many other factors (such as quality of the raceway) influence the quality of the bearings.

We have found that a medium quality set, such as Bones Reds will perform quite well.
