Get bigger wheels like the ones on long boards I have them on my long board and short they are way better.Like 65-70 mm size, your board rides a little higher and you might need spacers under your trucks as well.

They make wheels specifically for street skating now. Bones makes some good wheels for what your looking for. Wheels that have (STF) are the street wheels. Hope this helps, I have not skated for about 5 years now, kind of want to get back into it now, but my back is too messed up thanks to my profession in the Army. Good luck!

I use to skate for a long time and recently stopped because I didn't want to hurt myself for football. I always used Ricta wheels with bones Swiss bearings.

I tried to stand on a skateboard when I was a kid and I couldn't even do that. Couldn't imagine trying to roll while standing on one.

I had a mini ramp on my basketball court in the backyard as a kid and still to this day remember my dad trying to drop in...

Bahahaha.

I did in Elementary School. Thought I was good, too.
