Title: Who still makes 7.75
Post by: berries and a twig on August 01, 2018, 02:37:38 PM
I cant flick my board very well due to my achilles and plantar fasciitis so I skate small boards because it's slightly less stressful on my feet to flip the board.

Dwindle makes 7.75 and basically any size
baker has a few
Real has a couple
Element
crail boards 

anyone else see any companies that arent these guys still making small shapes? ( under 8')
Also super fucking hard to find a small board at a shop... The struggle is real, unless the shop has an old ass discount bin.

I've had a few polar boards in 7.8.  I know Traffic will still make some as well.

shortys has the one graphic but honeslty I know I shouldnt be picky, but the bottom three are the only ones id be interested in.

can't really go to a shop to get small boards either, not to many shops around here dont have 7.75 boards (Vancouver, Menu, boardroom kits, the drive, skull skates has blank small boards but theyre blank :/ none of them have under 8 in stock)  I aint bout that special order shit either

fuck me right

Iíve been keeping a 7.75 in the quiver just for fun. Chapman makes pretty much all of their graphics in 7.75 and it is a great shape...31.56 long with a 14.25 wheelbase.

Currently have this one set up with some venture lows and 50mm wheels:

If you like a lot of concave and can deal with a blank, the mini logo 7.75 isnít bad either.

Ah maybe he stopped making them. I picked mine up about a year ago along with a Daewon Song guest board.

Mini Logo still makes a 7.75 and they are cheap.  They have some on the skateone.com site that are $20 if you buy two or more.

When I rode 8s in 1995 I would just grab whatever the only 8" deck in the shop was. I had a lot of stupid looking graphics. I learned not to care. I pretty much still don't and it's a surprise when I get one that isn't heinous.

Palace makes a few from time to time. I never understood why the over 8 inch trend was ever a thing though. Growing up, I only had one friend who rode 8.5ís and he had to buy blankdecks.com boards just to ride them, and heís a 6í3 guy with a size 14 shoe so it seemed logical. Now, you have people pretending to do impossibles with shoddy 360 shoves because their board is too big for their small foot to actually wrap around. Hopefully you guys are correct and smaller boards come back...
