Title: Egg Shaped Boards
Post by: hobochimp on June 23, 2018, 12:30:53 PM
I've been really curious about "egg" or football shaped boards. For example the Heroin Big Egg, or the Cardiel Antihero. They seem like they'd skate pretty well as all around boards for both street and tranny. Just curious what peoples thoughts were on them and how they skate. Also if anyone knows any other companies making these shapes I'd be interested in seeing more decks of this style.

I'm skating the Baker Impact Stripe egg right now and love it.  I've got the Heroin Big Egg lined up next.  Let's also not forgot that these are early 90s shapes, so make sure to set it up with some wide trucks and 48mm wheels.

I've been really interested in this 90's football shape trend. Alex had a good looking shape on his promodel for 917 and Blind made some reissues of the 90's grafics but the boards were pretty overpriced.

yeah the cardiel and kennedy are the same shape.  these boards are 9+ at their widest point, but with the strong taper at the nose and tail, they don't really feel that wide.

You just made me look at crailtap.com for the first time in years. That powerslide board is 9.25 wide and the wheelbase is 13.875.

I just skated the Big Egg and now I'm currently on the Cardiel.  The exact two boards from your initial comment.

The Big Egg is great but ultimately I wasn't feeling the 14.25 WB so I switched to the Cardiel which has a 14.75 WB and a more traditional popsicle tail. 

Both great boards, just depends if you like a long or short WB

So I can see it on my phone if you quote it or did you edit something? I thought maybe it was a mobile issue.

Anyway I wanted a football shape too, after watching Chico Instagram clips on repeat.

Really liked this deck so waited for Memorial Day sale, and had some fresh ace 55s to pair with it I bought a while back. Deck is a Creature ever slick 8.88 and almost feels like the 55s are not wide enough, but haven’t skated because I just recovered from a gnarly heel bruise and wanted to skate my regular setup again first

If anyone is interested I have that girl phawt shape deck gripped and only skated once. Would be willing to trade for a set of 8.5 Trucks, a deck or whatever else. Pm if interested. Wasn’t really expecting the nose to be that pointy. I can’t stray too far away from the popsicle shape

I just set one up with Venture 5.8s and they are perfect. Ace 44 will be slighty short but the nose and tails taper down to about an 8.2ish  Ill have to double check. 55 will be nice but lots of wheels sticking out.

Edit: yeah 44s would be perfect. The board at the widest point is 8.75 but feels like a 8.25.

Only thing stopping me is the weight of a bigger shape. I like flipping my board and I usually skate 8 inch decks so this would be a big jump. The shape looks so sick though

came to second this comment, the Catblood I had was great and I've got a Catblood 2 that I just dick around on sometimes. It's a good round shape but more subtle than a 90s football.

Yes, it can bite more the axles than usual, the board would be perfect with some 139.

Also, which one has the fuller tail?
