Best lubrication for longboard? (Skating/ pavement surfing haha)?

I ride on randall 180s and abec 11s. I'm not sure what bearings but its from Bustin Boards. It is a 38" Cigar.

Few weeks ago my board was briefly in the rain for about 2 minutes before I finally convinced my dad to pull over while on the highway so i can wipe it down and take it inside. Should I use WD40 to take out the squeakiness?

I usually just take off the wheels and wipe em all clean once in awhile.


what about the randalls? its squeaky around where you adjust for tightness.

    Never use WD-40 it attracts dirt and grime. Use only a proper skateboard lubricant.

    I would recommend a cleaning before lubrication. If you are not sure follow the directions on the Bones Bearings website. It's about the best documentation of bearing cleaning.

    Use Tri flow. wipe off excess to prevent attracting dirt. Twice as good as WD.
