I personally due a layer of polyurethane high gloss spray over all the boards that I make so they're waterproof. Haven't had a warped board yet. Plus there's more to worry about in the rain. Your going to trash your bearings if water gets in their.
It takes a lot to water log a board. It just soaks up a bunch of water and becomes really heavy. I rode my Gullwing trucks in the rain because they were my old ones. anything in condition will work though because it's going to be less likely to rust. I always take everything apart when I'm done rainstating. EVERYTHING. I hate rainskating because of that, and it teaches you bad habits. I hope this helps you @TonyDeAnda
you can take your board to a boat manufacturer and get the boat grip on your board. that's what I did. As for waterproof bearings/trucks you can plasti-dip your trucks and use waterproof grease on your bearings and just dry the bearings after your wet ride.
