what would happen if i rinsed off my koa wood longboard with the hose?

It is not a good idea. Longboards are made of wood which has the chance of warping if it gets wet. Also is your bearings get condensation in them they stand a strong chance of rusting and inhibiting the performance of your bearings. If you have dirt of the bottom or wheels just use a slightly damp cloth to clean it off. If your grip is dirty you can buy grip gum that can be used to clean your grip tape. If you need to clean your bearings you want to completely take them out of the wheel and use a synthetic lubricant when you put them back in.

some of the paint that they use to be "enviornmentally friendly" is waterbased so you could run the risk of taking off your graphic.
