The lows are a serious contender for the best shoe I've ever skated.

This board is forever in my dreams. It was 8.25 x 31.25, that squared ps stix shape and had concave deep as all fuck. I remember stepping on it and instantly finding home, only to never find another one with that same shape again... And I've looked. Boy, oh-boy, I have looked.

Quasi, WKND and FA... I don't ask for much. I tell my mom I love her every now and then and I've been good at restraining from being too sinful lately. All I ask is a squared 8.25 with deeper concave, please. I could do without the short length if I have to, but please.. just once more, let me live in paradise for another deck-lifespan.

Lurkville 8.3 / MOB
149 Thunder Hollow Lights (last gen, the low ones)
53mm Satori
Bones Meds
Super Reds (?)

I skated 4 of those boards in a row, after that series was over they changed the 8.3 and it was gone (apparently it was a BB/Genny press that some of the DLX dudes used as well/wasn't a regular press by DLX, only special orders or some shit), once they switched, they got all pointy and shit, wb changes, etc.., I'd skate them now if they reverted. They were just so FAT and round with the nose and tail, so comfy, perfect deck for me, my holy grail I keep trying to find, just looking at this makes me sad (had to dig it off insta which I don't use, 300 some odd weeks ago it says Wink

Scumco does do a square shape but I've only ever seen it in the silver spoon concave.

Do you drink? Serious question. I'd ask about weight changes, but they're subtle compared to the effects of boozing it up... the liquor goes straight to your feet.

Thanks boys, but I've been trying to get one of those square deep dish boards and they're hard as fuck to find if you want it shipped to europe. I've even emailed them about it and they said they don't make that many since not alot of people like em, but the few that do really love them.

I skated an Iron Claw board before and it had super deep concave and a steep tail and nose, I liked it a lot.

Not at all anymore, and I didn't really at the time either. I kind of feel like my feet for the sizing of those shoes fit right in between, or maybe depending how cold it is outside the blood flow could make them swell a little more.
