How to make my longboard [skateboard] go faster?

okay, im new to longboarding and i would like to know without actually changing any parts and buying new parts for my board,what are some ways to set it up to make it go faster?

ex..have your bearings tightened/loosened a certain amount or /loosen or tighten trucks

anything helps seeing how new I am to the sport so i appreciate your advice -I really have no idea what i should be doing

To Soledout, the person asked how to do it without changing parts so obviously changing bearings is out of the question.

The first thing you want to make sure is that your bearings are not too tight, so they don't rub against the bolts. The second thing you can do is lubricate your bearings. I found this on ebay guides:
Bearings lubricated with oil will spin faster in your hand whereas bearings lubricated with grease will spin slower in your hand because oil is thin and it has less resistance than grease. However, oil will not last as long as grease so oiled bearings will need to be lubricated more frequently than greased bearings. In general, both oil and grease lubricated bearings will spin fine once they are mounted to the wheels, but oil does require more maintenance and reoiling as it dries up faster. Grease lubricated bearings will last a little longer between maintenance.

And last of all, get a skateboard. they're more fun lol
