Seen one Krooked deck with the new 8.18 full shape. Any idea when this shape is going on some Real decks? I want a new board and am torn between 8" and 8.25" and feel the 8.18" would be a good stepping stone.


Which model? I looked for dlx fulls the other day in hopes of finding an 8.18 full.

EDIT: found it (based on copy)

Just picked up an AH 8.5" full shape...

this could be shape I ride until I'm done...

Nice long tail 6.75" and 14.6 wheelbase. Holds its width nicely the entire length. Might  even beat out my old faithful 8.62". Stoked.

I'm riding the same shape right now. I always bought the 8.75 for the wheelbase and length. This 8.5 full is amazing. It's somehow a quarter inch longer than the 8.75 even though it's listed as being a little shorter.

I saw him opening the box on insta and there is never a real good shot of the graphic. It appears to be a Gonzafied hanging klansman on the original shape. cant wait to see a good pic. Really hoping to get my hands on one I got my local on it but sometimes they flake...

3 sessions in on my Anti Hero T-Mo square shovel head 8.4/32.25 with 14.5wb.  It has the III stamped on the top ply of the truck bolts.  This might be the perfect ATV size and shape.  Prob my 6 or 7th AH deck in a row, with 1 Doomsayer shovel nose/tail deck in there which I believe is Generator wood also.  Keep up the great work DLX, and I'll keep buying and riding them...

Anybody know what the Real Full Shape SE decks are? I know that Reals 8.38 fulls are basically 32.5in but this Full Shape SE board says its 32.18in long was this just a couple of weird listings or is it actually a different shape?!?! I love the 8.38's shape but its too long for me and I would jizz my pants if this was for real.

Prepare your pants for jizz my man!

Full SE decks are the same shapes as normal full's, just with different lengths and wheelbases.

I tried to prepare myself but I failed. I jizzed everywhere and it's going to take awhile to clean it all up. This is the most beautiful thing I've heard since Gary Rogers being so politically incorrect on national television!

Been loving the 8.3 Ishod twin tail so far, even coming from a longer, wider 8.38 Full. Steeper concave took a second to get used to but I prefer it steep anyway so once I adjusted it felt perfect. Might stick with these for a while. I've skated Reals for my last 5 out of 6 boards so far this year, keep killing it with the shapes!

Strayed from thunder tho but I might be tempted back if they ever come out with that extended baseplate for slides....

I want to try one, but the 14.4 wheelbase is a little to long for me. Is the shape pointy or round like most DLX?

Interested in hearing more about this shape as well.  Do you miss having a well-defined nose when popping tricks?  Thanks for the feedback Will

Honestly when I first looked at it I wasn't sure because I always have prefered shapes like their Full decks which are a little more square shaped and these are a little rounder/pointier. Not that they're pointy like baker boards just not as square as the fulls. The "tails" are obviously s little shorter than your average nose but they're a little bigger than the normal tails too so it doesn't feel like you don't have enough space for your feet on the ends, which was my biggest worry personally. I think the steep concave works with the shape because if it were mellow I think the ends would feel too short, but the concave makes it easier to feel the tail so it works out. I literally just skate it symmetrically I don't pay attention to which end is which I just skate it however and it's great. My trucks are getting grounded down more evenly as well whereas normally for myself, it's pretty obvious which end I do crooks on and which end I'm doing smiths/feebles, etc. overall I was a little nervous at first straying from my tried and true 8.38 Full which is wider & a little longer than the 8.3 twin tail but it worked out for me and would recommend trying if interested.

Edit: Also, tail/noseslides are good to go too. Again I was worried that the shorter ends would make those tricks harder but ends are juuuust long enough that you can lock in & stand on your slides without feeling like you don't have enough room

The Raney shape that's 8.28 x 31.7 ... due to shape is that an Indy 139 or 149? I hate when trucks stick out. I guess I could ask on 144 too but that's still too new for me to deal with yet.

Interesting. Got any more specs? I'm interested in the measurements, especially the 8.38" and 8.5" ones.
