Title: DLX Shapes
Post by: Christian Alexander on April 09, 2015, 11:12:25 AM
Hey Slap Pals,

We're working to some new Deluxe deck shapes. Any shapes you like now that could use a tweak to make it perfect?

If anyone has any suggestions, ideas or input we'd love to hear them!

You guys have a few unicorns:

8.43x32.57 14.75/15" WB - great shape but always hard to find
(the 8.38x35.56 could stand to use the same WB instead of being shorter)

8.18"x31.84" so few models use this, one of my favs if not THE favorite shape.

8.28x (love this width but the lengths are either short with 14"WB or 32" (never seen a 32" it's in the new AH drop)

I'd love to see some 8.2/8.28"x31.5/31.75 with 14.25/.35 WBs

I believe Lenny already covered my desires by saying shorter/wider boards are in the process of being made, but...

I'd love to see an 8.5x32 or 8.5x32.2, along with 8.38x32. I like wide, but shorter boards. The 8.5x32.56~~ shape that's out feels a little too long for me.
Thanks!

That shaped Raney Beres Deck is almost perfect. Love to see it with a longer wheelbase. Ideally 14.75".

More boards in the 8.75" range with a slight taper, shovel nose and square tail...

Post by: BMCsteve on April 09, 2015, 11:59:33 AM
More symmetrical options.  Ishod's twin tail is great but it would be nice to see other sizes along with a more full nose/tail.  Almost like a twin nose instead of the twin tail

This would be my dream shape - 8.25 x 32 w/14.38 wb and twin R1 noses

Agreed.

Dig this shape (same as the dos lunas?) but it's too short:

I'm pretty short, so it'd be cool to see an 8.125 with a short WB

Less than 14' WB would be amazing

Crailtap does it and it works fantastically, Also doesn't hurt that Guy and MJ ride them

The Crailtap shape is called GO28

A shorter 8.5 that's a bit on the mellower side.
Something similar to the baker B16 shape. If you guys made AH decks in a shape like that, I promise you it would be all I would ride from now on.

This was one of my favorite DLX shapes. It was from the Real Ace Edition. 8.6 at the widest with a double -drilled nose, 14.5" or 15" wheelbase.  Slight taper, square tail and Shovel nose. Would love to see more double-drilled boards like this.

My friend gave me his old WKND shaped board and it had the nicest shape. It was 8.5x32 but it has a really long wheelbase. If you guys made a similar shape to this, I would be so happy. The squarish tail was so stable for popping, going back to a rounded tail was really hard. Perfect tranny board in my opinion.

(http://img.skatewarehouse.com/watermark/rs.php?path=WKPENC85DK-2.jpg&nw=800)

Also more boards in the 8.43 shape would be amazing.

Post by: 144p on April 09, 2015, 09:40:16 PM
I always love the actual shape of most of the deluxe "shaped" boards, but feel the dimensions aren't functional outside of the cruiser category. 14.5-14.75 are realistic wheelbases for boards between 8.5-8.9 with functional nose(7/7.125) and tail(6.5/6.6) lengths.
Boards like the max schaaf 4q and worrest highway were awesome but had strange disproportionate measurements. A 14.38 wheelbase on a 9.5 wide board is strange, and the schaaf had a 6.3 long tail and it felt like my foot wood fall off or that my board was more vertical than was comfortable when I went to pop anything.
Just A few thoughts, the double wheelbase is an under used concept too.

If I had my way,   I'd like the 8.38 to be 32"/14.38" wheelbase. I've found that width to be perfect, but the extra half inch or so makes it just a little long for my preference. But otherwise, your 8.25x32 does the job more than well enough.
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: Doughboy on April 10, 2015, 06:26:37 AM
I'd really like an 8.5 and 8.38 that is the exact same length as the 8.25 DLX shape. 14.25 wheelbase instead of 14.38 with the leftover 1/8 of an inch from the wheelbase evenly added to the nose and tail lengths. The 8.25 DLX shape is almost perfect and I've skated a giant stack of them, I'd just prefer it to be an 8.5 or 8.38 and have an 1/8 inch shorter wheelbase. That's just my 2 cents and my thoughts about what I think I'd be most comfortable skating.

I'd also like to add that I really dig DLX products and I think that the overall vibe of the company and the legacy that DLX has built in skateboarding is great. Thanks for all the great work through all the years DLX! :)

Post by: Big Baby Jesus on April 10, 2015, 11:42:40 AM
No real suggestions although I'd like to see double noses too.

On a side note, I think it's dope how active DLX is on these boards. Says a lot about the company asking for direct feedback from customers. Most in the industry seem to treat slap like its a horrible thing, want no involvement, and seem to get butthurt over all of us. Props to DLX for not being pussies!
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: Xen on April 10, 2015, 02:14:10 PM
I'm not a fan of double noses or double tails. Ideally you have a hybrid, something between a nose and tail in size and shape.

What I really want, that I simply cannot find (yet) is a squaresih popsicle

take tails like these, round them just a little more and use it as the nose and tail.

Black label has great tails on their shapes but ALL their boards have that skinny ass 90s nose shape (which I never rode even back then).

The knockout shape is close

Drehobl shield board from 2005 = best ever. Also, that was the golden age of Krooked graphics.
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: themanwhomakes on April 10, 2015, 02:42:43 PM
Never thought i woukd get to voice my opinion on something like this, so here goes nothing. I was riding the 8.5 krookeds and reals for the longest time. I think there should be a 32 inch version (possibly even between 31.5, or 31.84) with a slightly mellower/smaller nose and the same tails. Maybe make it an 8.4.  Im riding the ishod twin tip at the moment and it is truly an eye opening experience. I never thought i would size down again but i love this board to death.

In summary: The tails on the 8.25 and 8.5 are perfect, but i think the noses need to be scaled down slightly and made a bit more tail like. I would like to see more boards in the 8.25 to 8.5 range, and i would like them to be in between 31.84 and 32.  I think 8.38 or 8.4 x 32 would be a good place to start.

Post by: Noble Experiment on April 11, 2015, 05:23:25 AM
Aside from the suggestions I mentioned earlier, I'm currently skating a board that's 8.5 x 32, with a 14.25 wheelbase and with a tail and nose that are really close to being the same in size and steepness, with the nose just being a tad bit bigger. It's one of the best feeling boards I've had in a while. It feels really comfortable and everything just seems to work on it. If you guys made something similar that'd be cool. I know there's already a few of you in here suggesting an 8.5 that's on the shorter side, I'm right there with ya on that one, hah.

Post by: metsuri on April 11, 2015, 10:22:31 AM
That Nick Dompierre board from the Gaming Experience series a few years back was perfect. I had 3 of those in a row. It was 8.18 and it was long, might have been 32.56 and it had a big round nose. I loved that shape and I've had probably a dozen different 8.18 wide DLX decks since then but I've never come across one exactly like that.

I can find a picture of that series on google image search but the Dompierre board is the only one with measurements cut out of the picture.

Post by: Spitfire4life on April 11, 2015, 10:46:07 AM
Also, that Ishod Buttery Slick board with the square tail looked really good, but it was way too small. That shape, in something like 8.5x32.5 would be amazing.

the 8.25x32ish Krooked Mat O'Brien graphic board i'm skating now is great, just wish it was a little flatter. not sure if that's anything you cats can change but it's a great shape that i hope stays in the Deluxe/Krooked line-up.

A lot of people asking for longer boards so I gotta add to the shorter boards request. really like the 8.12 x 31.25 and the 8.28 x 31.7 boards are cool, more of that would be nice. would like to try some shorter 8.25+ boards with shorter wheelbases around 14" too.

DLX the shit for the reaching out to the consumers like this.

Also the 8.5 x 32.18 shape with the 14.38 wb has a really tapered tail
Would be cool to see an 8.5 with a 14.5 wb and a more full tail.
Also using mellower molds would be great for brands beyond real.

I second this. 8.5 x 32.5 with a 14.5 wheelbase seems perfect. I really dug that Real wrecking crew with the bee on the bottom, just thought it was a little too wide on the front foot. 

Also make some Krookeds in the 8.62 please!

Bump for a new idea. Also, somebody started a thread about the 90's football shapes that I think mentioned earlier in this thread.

A full shaped twin tail board. They look pretty full shaped as they are, but I haven't ridden a full shape Real yet, so I can't really tell the difference.

Maybe twin tails in different sizes besides 8.3??

Also, because of the other thread I started, some dipped boards. White, or any color really except black.

The DLX twin tails aren't full shape at all but I totally agree with you.  Something along the lines of the Street Plant modern barnyard (symmetrical with 7" nose/tail)-

Really, really loving the 8.43x32.5 Andrew Allen shapes as of late (I stocked up around the time he quit from AH). I'm six foot and wide shouldered, and this board feels perfect. Giant nose and tail without much taper, and the wheelbase is 14.5 or 14.75 which feels fantastic.

Get the 8.25 full.  The DLX 8.38x35.56 is actually incorrectly listed everywhere.  The board is really 8.38x32.25 (that's even what the sticker on it says).  The 8.25 full shape is 32.2 so we're talking about .05" between the two.

I only skated real boards for years but then at some point the narrower ( 8-8.18 ) boards started having tapered nose/tail and I couldn't deal.  I haven't looked but are there full shapes in that size and would that get rid of the taper?  Basically I just want a big fat rounded nose and tail on a 8" or just over deck.

A Roll for Rob graphic on an 8" shape with a 14" wheelbase (what Rob and I always preferred) would be amazing. There was an 8" shape that was maybe 31.5" long a summer or two ago that was amazing but it seems like that shape has an under 14" wheelbase now which is kind of weird. like 8"x31.5" or 31.75" Full shape with 14" wheelbase would be the unreal.

Krooked have always seemed the flattest out of DLX boards. Real's Low Pro are supposed to be a flat concave. I've had it. Not sure where it compares to Girl/Chocolate, but I definitely noticed the difference in the Low Pro compared to Real's R1 construction

8.25*32 with 14.38 wheelbase is my favorite right now
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: bluntstofakie on June 11, 2016, 07:33:05 AM
please change the wheelbase on the 8.06 x 32 to around 14-14.25 please. i would skate nothing but that shape for as long as I could.
Please don't do this. Deluxe is the only company that makes a 14.38 wheelbase on a 8ish board. I get that you like the shape, but there are plenty of boards that are 8 x 32 with a 14 wb out there.

Make the 8.12 shape more often, those are the best boards but are a bit harder to find. Just keep that one exactly as it is.

Late to the game. Next paycheck I'm ordering these two boards
(http://www.tactics.com/a/8d07/o/anti-hero-beres-lance-mountain-guest-artist-863-skateboard-deck-yellow.jpg) (http://www.tactics.com/a/8idy/o/anti-hero-stained-eagle-835-dingbat-shape-skateboard-deck-green-stain.jpg)
Haven't tried the dingbat board, but I like that its 31.5" in length. Beres board is awesome.

Ideal board would be in between these two in length and width. i.e. W8.5" L31.75"

Recently switched from deluxe to crailtap after 5 years just becasue they make a W8.375" L31.75" and its difficult to find wide boards that arent super long. If AH made a board like that I'd probably never ride anything different.

8.25 with a kinda slim rounded nose and squarish tail, 14 - 14.25 wheelbase.
Im thinking of ordering the Dingbat shape, if anyone has a pic of the top gripped, that would be cool to see.
I think it's 8.38, that shape in 8.25 sounds great.

Anyone skated the DLX 8.28? I think it is only on Anti Hero boards.

I skate two of them, love the width, hate the WB, it's 14 (just like the eagle logo 8.375) I think I mentioned earlier wanting an 8.28 with the 14.3 WB, I'd be in lurv.

I had a Busenitz in that shape that I loved. Honestly, I've gotten used to the 8.06 and the 8.06 Full Shape I'm riding now is pretty great, but that 8.12 had a nice feel, even though it was verging on "magic carpet ride" with 8" trucks.

I've been riding the 8.06 full for a few months. It took a minute to get used to the way the nose looked and felt but I like it now and the extra meat does make the board feel a hair bigger.

I can't really feel the difference between low pros and regular real decks when I stand on them, but for some reason I'm noticeably more consistent when skating low pros, so much so that I'm usually willing to downsize from 8.5 to 8.38 if the 8.38 is a low pro. This could all just be in my head, but I'm gonna go with it and cop low pros whenever I can.

i got 2 ishod boards that have twin tail. the one with the silver holographic-graphic-graphic.
i only got the first one to use as a wall board but then remembered those new deal siamese decks from back in the day so gave it a go.
my initial impression was not good at all. really weird to get into noseslides, really weird for switch tricks, especially the ones that need subtle pop-like sw nose wheelies on low stuff. after 3 sessions though, i have started to really dig the shape (bar those switch tricks) and 2 days ago the second one came through the post. i am now worried that i might get too used to this and that it will be difficult to get back to "normal".
the fact that its symmetrical is great though. very convenient

i'm definitely used to this by now. 5 sessions in. with the nose actually being a tail, nollie tricks are a bummer. it takes longer for the edge of the board to touch the ground and pop so everything is different. for some reason, however, this board feels great to skate tranny. does anyone here know if the twin shape is available with both nose/tail being slightly longer than a normal tail? like, in between of a tail and a nose. i know such a board would be more susceptible to breaking but i'm sure would be grand for pretty much everything. i dont skate massive ledges anyway.

A twin nose/tail would be really good as you would spread out the wear on your tail and nose more evenly, and wouldn't have to worry about the direction of the board. But what about your trucks, do any of you skate the front truck slightly looser than the back, and have specific grooves in your trucks like 5-0, crook or smith grooves? It seems like for some people those factors would mean that a twin tail board doesn't make their setup as symmetrical as one would initially think.

To answer the truck question, I like my front truck looser than my back truck, but because I knew I was going to skate a twin tail eventually, I tighten my trucks up evenly. I can't crook.

Rode a few mystery symetry boards a while back (with ACE44s) and really enjoyed it; the shape was more twin tail (Whereas the Creature and Plan B boards were more like Twin noses); I always keep my trucks as evenly loose as possible (OCD'd down to number of cranks). The hardest part was trying to get passed not giving a fuck when setting up or getting on as its such a rote memory thing to do that you don't notice how often you check to see if your shit is pointing the way you want it.

What was really good for me was I have a mental thang with doing bside pop shuvs off stairs or onto ledges, my board HAS to be backwards (popping of the nose), same thing for fakie big spins.

sorry, saw this late. i too have the front truck slightly looser than the tail but not much. its not that i am skating the board on the nose all the time- its good enough for emergency nose-popped tricks and its more of a psychological factor but to be honest i did not like the board because of the nose being identical to the nose. as i was trying to get used to popping switch tricks off a tail, i thought this could be good for my skating. after 6 sessions though, i could still not get used to the feel so i swapped the board for an atm click ed devera, with normal nose and extremely mellow concave that took absolutely no time to get used to

Hey Dudes, thanks for all the feedback so far! -Really appreciated!

We have something pretty cool in the works for this thread that I'll post soon enough...

First off we have a couple of specific questions for you that will help us get ready for that next step:


 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase?

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code?

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?

Thanks guys!

1.  Combo length/width.  8 x around 32

2/3.  It would help me and I wouldn't have stopped skating reals if I knew the shape would always be the same if I always bought the same size ... this changed at some point and the tapered nose/tail killed me being able to keep hoping I got lucky

4.  I never really know so I'm not super worried on this one

5.  8x32 fat rounded nose and tail ( fwiw I also liked the low pro I had a lot ) ... so 8 X 32 low pro full ;)

Thanks for putting a real interest in what the consumer wants!

We have something pretty cool in the works for this thread that I'll post soon enough...

First off we have a couple of specific questions for you that will help us get ready for that next step:


 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase?

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code?

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?

Thanks guys!

1. As of right now, wheelbase.
2. While I don't think nose/tail length is necessary, I always like to get as much information as possible. It frustrates me when the wheelbase isn't listed.
3. I like it, it makes it easier to find the exact shape you're looking for. Sometimes it's confusing when boards with similar width and length are shaped differently.
4. 14.5, but I'd like to try something in the 8.38 range.
5. Basically the 8.25 full, but with the same tail as the regular 8.25/8.38 boards. It's pretty damn close as it is though.

1. Width. Having to shop mostly online it is sadly often the only thing I can go off. Also shopping in Europe where at least some brands seem to use different wood shops than for their boards sold in USA, it's difficult getting the info I'd like to have for length, wheelbase, concave, etc.

2. Yes! I think this should be heavily encouraged. Maybe then shops could also start putting the info up, so it wouldn't be such a gamble every time.

3. I guess it could help, but not really necessary for me personally. Maybe the shops would put it up easier if it had some name or code though, so in that regard it might be better.

4. Wheelbase maybe 14.5". I know 14" is a bit short for me at least, but I can deal with it also. Length 32" to 33"

5. 8.25", 14.5" wb, 32.5" long. Somewhere thereabouts. Haven't found my dream shape yet, but I do prefer slightly longer wheelbases and lengths with proper noses and tails (no short stubs). Medium concave. Definitely not mellow at least. Also, I've never tried the twin tail shapes, but I think I might like a twin tail board personally.

Yeah Lenny!

1) Width
2) Yes
3) Sounds ideal
4) 14.5
5) Dream shape would be either be the Raney Shape or the Salman shape (the one Real put out last year) slightly wider with slightly longer wheelbase. Perhaps with double drilled wheelbase 14.25" to 14.75" Real did one a few years ago with a Shovel nose for the Ace Edition. Would love something like this again.

1. first thing i look is width, then lenght and wheelbase, but wheelbase seems to be the most important thing from what i heard

2. why not, but with the naked eye i saw

3. weird, but why not

4. 14.38 works well right now

5. 8.25 x 32 x 14.38 is good at the moment
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: cleveridiot on July 11, 2016, 01:48:52 PM


 1.     Width
 2.     Any specs available make my decisions much easier so I'll take any numbers you can give

 3.     If the specs of each shape code are available along with the code then that would be cool
 4.     No more than 14.5 but anything between 14-14.5 is good
 5.     The 8.38 full shape is damn perfect for me. Right now that is my end all shape haha

Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: BoxStuffer on July 11, 2016, 04:06:13 PM
1. Width
2. Yes.  Love that DLX lists the width, length and wheelbase already.
3. That would be great. 
4. 14 to 14.25
5. 8.25 x 31.5 with a 14" wheelbase

I'm currently enjoying the 8.125 x 31.25 - 14" shape and love it.  I guess I pretty much enjoy all DLX boards between 8.06 - 8.25.

Thanks for asking for and taking feedback.

 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase?

Wheelbase (but oh man, it's all of it....I like ~32" boards with 14.3+ WB @ 8.25 and above ;)

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)

Yes, but I don't care about Nose/Tail width, standing on it fixes that, knowing it's a full or regular helps tho +WB and LxW.

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code?

Yes.

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?

The 14.3 you guys make is dreamy.

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?

The quasi 8.25" squarish popscicle but in a tru 8.3 with a 14.35 WB..I can't explain it any better than that.

Thanks guys!

The 8.25" FULL is almost perfection, the 14.5 WB and the 32+ made it feel really long. How I'd make it: 8.25" FULL/14.35"WB/31.75L with twin nose/tail hybrids (an inbetween length)

wow that's pretty much exactly what i was gonna put down, minus maybe having like one 15" wb option in the 8.6-8.8 range just for the sake of having it
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: patrick c. on July 11, 2016, 05:55:55 PM
1) Wheelbase
2) Yes (didn't Real do this on the Wrecking Crew boards?)
3) I'd rather just have 2)
4) 15
5) 8.5 x 33 with a 15 inch wheelbase (my past three boards have been the 8.43 shape and that's close to perfect for me).

 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase?

Width first because it has to fit my trucks but that almost goes without saying, right?

So the NEXT most important thing is probably wheelbase. I would have said "length" a year or two ago but I've since learned that I can live with a slightly shorter board but I can't stand a shorter wheelbase.

Still, too short length is a deal breaker as is a shorter tail

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)

Probably not. Maybe if done as a line diagram but as just more numbers on a sticker it starts to look like number soup. I also have little basis for comparison so what does a 7.88" wide tail mean anyway? Is that slim? Normal? In fact a Full/Normal/Slim classification might be more helpful.

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code?

Maybe, although I can see this inadvertently boosting online sales to the detriment of brick and mortar shops (although you'd still run the risk of getting a heinous yellow top ply).

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?

14.5? The one on the 8.06? I ought to know this.

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?

I had a Busenitz logo board that was pretty perfect a few years back. The 8.12?
Maybe the 8.06 Full Shape tail on the regular nose?
The one that finally makes me land a solid backside air on vert?

This sums my thoughts up perfectly as well. Currently skating an Ishod 8.38 full and have been ecstatic with it since day 1, love all fat/square popsicles with little to no taper.

Will definitely be grabbing one of the 8.25 fulls in the future

Width
Yes, it would even make me consider buying the board
Would be sick....
Don't look at wheelbases yet...just not nuts about longer ones...usually figure it out too late....
Lately blunt....like what ps Stix is doing w. FA, habitat, etc.....

1. Width
2. I'm happy with the size stickers you have now.
3.Naming the shapes would be cool. They would just have to be names you can memorize. Crailtap has G075 or whatever, and Welcome has Nimbus and some other crazy names. I like how Baker has simple names like OG. That's just me though...
4. 14-14.4
5. I haven't skated any full shapes yet, but I have to imagine a Full Shape Twintail 8.25 X 32, with a 14.4 wheelbase.

1. width
2. good as is
3. go for it
4. don't know, as long as the nose is not excessively long. i hate boards that look like spades
5. generally any ishod shape bar the twin thing ones

Sorry but i would like to add a "request": can manufacturers please stop producing those really crappy boards that have absolutely no concave on the nose or tail? the kind of boards that if you place the nose flat on a table the board does not rock sideways at all? i know its a mellow concave thing but i have skated boards with extremely mellow concaves that did  not have this issue. Sorry about this Lenny but its something that has been bugging me the last 10 years. To be honest, this is the very first thing i check when i find a board that looks rad. My mates were not aware of this "issue" but since i pointed this out, everyone seems to not like the total lack of concave on the nose/tail. Thanks
Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: tzhangdox on July 12, 2016, 04:27:08 AM
 1.     Width

 2.     Yes, most real boards I buy just have a small sticker with some dimensions, it would help to include a larger sticker with the width,     length, wheelbase and nose/tail length etc.

 3.     Yes, instead of saying the 8.43 x 32.75 with 14.5 inch wheelbase shape or whatever, it would help to have a nickname or code to refer to each shape and explain some of its features. Could probably put that on the sticker I mentioned above^^

 4.     I don't remember what it is but whatever wheelbase was on the 8.43 x 32.57 shape, there was a Justin Brock totem graphic with that shape. Works well for bigger guys like myself. Would be great if you could make 8.5 boards with that wheelbase.

 5.     8.5 width, the wheelbase of the shape above(can't remember what it is), low pro with a full nose and tail.

As a sidenote, I don't think the sticker pack+stencil included with most real boards is necessary. I have like 100 of those things now.

First off, thank you ALL again for participating in this!

With your help and input, we will work to make some new shapes that kick ass.

The whole reason we have so many different shapes is that we know even 1/16Ē can change everything about the feel of a board. We want the chore of finding the right shape to be as easy a process as possible, as well as make sure we are pushing skateboarding further in the right direction.

-Thank you for the help.

Here is a Dropbox link with an Illustrator file that has three of our most popular shapes (8.25, 8.38, and 8.5), this is your chance to make the shape you've always dreamed of!

Just download the file, edit your shape(s), rename the file so that includes your SLAP user name, and send me an email when your done, and
I'll send you a Wetransfer link to get the finished files in couple days!

width.

2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)
for some people, i dont need it. the size should only have one nose tail spec per size unless its the "full" version which is explanatory.

as long as its simple not numbered like element.

4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?
14.38" (8.06")

I think you should look at Baker and how they label their decks. When your at the shop Baker decks have the concave type (mellow or steep), the WB, and the dimensions (size and length).

Finding stubby noses is difficult, check out Lifebloods, noses are still big but the noses don't feel like giant spoons (which I loathe); for PSTIX their boards are MUCH heavier, could be the plys they choose, those guys are all terrain killers.

The Raney Beres boards are the only exception. Skating the dingbat board now. Length is great, but its kinda narrow.

Saw that there's an Anti Hero 'Bino board coming out with 8.43 x 33 15'wb on Instagram...As far as I'm concerned these are the PERFECT DIMENSIONS!!! Please don't let this be some kind of one-off deal.  I'll be buying as many as I can get my hands on.

This thread is an amazing example of why dlx is cool. Anyways...I've been blubbering about trying to find a short, fat shape. There was the legendary drehobol shape, I didn't ever have it, but I thought it was prized for being shorter. Dlx doesn't have many short boards, I have short, legs, and have been trying to find some shorter stuff. So currently length is the most interesting measurement, for me. I appreciate width, length, and wheelbase measurements on boards. A shape naming system is also cool, but I see how that could be problematic for dlx and for shops.

If the two truck companies that dlx owns, extend the wheelbase, why are more the offerings longer, and with longer wheelbases? The 'full' shapes in an 8", look to be perfect for me (a little long) if I was using Indys. I've been riding thunders and ventures more often lately, and they do 'great' for me, on the shorter wheelbases of ps stix and such. Lots of blatherings.

Felt like dlx boards where the best in the industry for quite awhile, and I never hesitate to grab one, I personally have ps stix boards lasting longer lately. Did dlx change its wood/glue? Razors a touch faster, not quite as hard/stiff/ poppy as I think it was.

 Continue to do what's working, I'll continue to support as things are

Was just looking at the Real Fall drop 2 catalog. HUF has a reissue board in the catalog. It says that it has Huf's own mellow concave as its shape. Does anyone know if this is different the the normal DLX mellow concave? The caption would imply it is. Any details?

We have something pretty cool in the works for this thread that I'll post soon enough...

First off we have a couple of specific questions for you that will help us get ready for that next step:


 1.     Please give only one answer: What is the main factor for you in deciding on a shape? Length, width, or wheelbase?
Length

 2.     Would it help to have more specific and measurements visible on the packaging of each board? (e.g. Nose/Tail width)
adding wheelbase would be cool

 3.     How would you feel about our boards having a more simplified shape guide, where each shape has a specific name or more basic shape         code? Shape guide, and then code would be cool.

 4.     What length of wheelbase do you prefer?
14.12-14.25, flexible tho, embrace the options

 5.     What is your end-all-be-all dream shape?
Less than 32", 14.25 ish wheelbase, width doesn't matter much to me. Baker b-16 is great. As others have mentioned: shorter noses! If the length subtracted from the nose was added to the wheelbase, just a theory, results would be favorable. Basing this off of growing up skating whale tailed boards that were short, but super stable do to longer wheelbases. For whatever it's worth, a nollie is maybe my favorite trick, just doesn't require a 7"+ nose for me

i noticed that the newest dlx boards come with roman numerals stamped in the top sheet. i'm guessing that has something to do with the concave? i usually go for the 8.25/B325 shape, but i wasn't aware that it may come in different concaves. i just picked up the HUF NY re-issue, i'm on the daan first board right now, i hope they're pretty similar.

I have a friend who works for DLX who posts a lot of real interesting shapes on his IG a lot that I've only seen a few of available so far. They're all real DLX brand boards with graphics and everything, not prototypes, so it looks like there are going to be a lot more options coming up.

I've been skating with this dude who has this ~9.5" Powell Peralta Ripper set up and that shit is so much fun. I gotta get a big fast board like that.

Damn i hadn't seen that either..  I've noticed a bunch of different shapes popping up from dlx.  They're making longer 8.5's with a longer wheelbase.

I'm drooling over that B.A. board, hope it fits my criteria.  Looks like the raney board but a little bigger?? I would buy 5 of them

The standard 8.25x32 has always been good to me. I've skated more of those than any other shape in the past 4 or so years... I just picked up an 8.25 full size to set up this weekend, really excited about trying the different shape. I've been watching "Sick Boys" alot lately too, so seeing all the old Jimmy, Tommy, and Mick-E footage has got me extra hyped on Deluxe. Can't stress how hyped I am for the Huf re-issue mellow also. I always wanted "A Real Huf board" for Christmas.

Got my first Anti-Hero Eagle deck yesterday. Picked it up because of the shape but didn't realize that the wb was gonna be long even for an 8.25. My last couple of decks were both F.A./P.S. Stix were 8.25 but the wheelbase were 14.25 compare to 14.38 which the AH has. Found myself with a much wider stance for setting for any trick and even an ollie took much more effort to slide my lead foot to reach the middle of the nose. Didn't even bother to look up the actual wheelbase till i got home or tried to size it up with my previous set-up's. It's weird that .10 would make a noticeable difference. is there any other AH decks that has a 14.25 or less in either the eagle decks or possibly full shape's? won't mind if i go up a width.

Hey, first time posting on here.
I had a 8.25 deck and have recently ridden two Ishod twin tails, which I like but, finding it to feel a little small lately. I may bump up to the 8.38 full. Not a big jump up in width, but the W.B. and nose are longer, and the fullness factor is appealing (twin tail gets skinny feeling at the nose).
Anyone recommend going with a LowProII over a standard R1 construction?

i cant dictate for an 8.5

but if you were to make a twin 8.06, i suggest it be different.
jim t was asking one day, i suggested doing something fun for anti-hero and do a twin nose gerwer deck.
do something fuller like 6.75, the 6.6 for a twin tail is fine but if somethign was twin nose it should be fuller but not quite 100% of a normal nose .

I'd rather the current twin tail (8.3x31.9, 14.3WB) just get a fuller nose and tail and call it day....;) I'm not getting the logic of make a board 'fuller' somehow necessitated making them longer with longer WBs...couldn't they have just been fuller...wknd and FA do it...AW..creature...

For an 8.5 twin tail, 8.5x32x14.38 - make it more of a hybrid tail/nose than a twin tail. Go skate a creature evilive series, I thought I 'd like it, 8.25" 14.5" WB but the tails are soooo short, it just feels long and weird.

Also, make it a low pro II =D and slick...with slide and sniff glitter embossed pink flowers and shit graphic that smells like a glade spray...you'll sell bajillions...

One thing I don't understand about dlx boards is why you have 8.06/8.18"s with long WBs, 8.38s longer than your 8.5s and an 8.25" full with a 14.5" WB...it's crazy land ;) oh and those 8.38x32.45 fulls with a 14.62 wb ----loopers....was it that 'one guy' who just sanded them too much to do a 32.5?

Could you also list the WBs in the drop catalogs? Soooooo helpful.

Been skating an 8.38 Full deck and it's one of my favorite shapes ever. I'll probably ride these exclusively for my next few boards. Interested in trying the low Pro's too

DO IT!!!

Got a low pro in that same 8.38 Full shape and it's been great! im definitely gonna skate these for my next 3-4 boards. would definitely be hyped on a twin nose shape!

The 8.38 full is great, and personally I like the longer wheelbase. A wider "twin nose" with longer WB would be nice too. But for now I'm sticking with the LowPro II in 8.38 full.

At almost 33" doesn't that feel weird? What are you skating? Street? Park?

Post by: NJFly318 on February 24, 2017, 09:28:07 PM
I am skating that board for street and park. The longer wheel base is so nice, and the full is fractionally shorter than the standard 8.38" wide decks. Also, I'm older and don't do too many flip tricks, if any.

We actually currently do this!

On the top sheet of each deck, near the top bolts, there is a Roman Numeral (I-IV) that corresponds to that board's placement in the mold.

I-is at the steepest, and IV-is the mellowest.

Hope this helps!

Damn, after all these years of buying dlx boards I had no idea. Thats really sick. But maybe it would be better if you guys could have a more explicit label denoting the concave, perhaps on the sticker that has the width, wheelbase etc. I feel like 99% of people, especially those who haven't been on this thread of slap, will have no idea what the Roman Numeral means if they even notice it.

I just noticed this on my new Real I swooped up and was wondering what it meant. I like how even the mellowest concave isn't flat at all. And make more boards like the new 8.6 Ishod spectrum! That would be pretty much the only shape I'd buy besides a smaller 8.375, 8.38 on occasion.

I just bought a new 8.06 Full. I know I was skeptical about them when they came out but after going from the Full that Lenny sent me (thanks again) back to the standard, I decided I missed the extra real estate on the Full.

Also, the more prominent sizing copy on the boards is nice.

Still waiting for the DLX equivalent to Baker's W 8.475 x L 31.875. I know they make that Beres popsicle board 8.5 and 31.85, but I'm hoping to see something around 8.35-8.45 wide and 31.75 long. I kind of liked that AH dingbat board dimensions but it tapered too much and felt really narrow near the back trucks.

I'm vouching for whatever the new 8.25 shape is that these dudes sent me. The Kyle Walker board with the lady holding a beer is the one I have so I know for sure it's on that board. She's built like an 8.5, but flies like an 8. Big nose and big fat ass. 36-24-36 and she's 5'3".

The Grosso is longer by about .75" and has a much longer wheelbase (>15"). BA's shape has a 14.38" WB. The shapes are exactly the same though.

They made a parade graphic one in yellow and pink and the vest one just came out. So don't be afraid to hang the lance one and find one of the newer graphics to skate. That shape is fun.

I am skating that shape right now. I went from the 8.25x32 DLX shape. The 8.28" has a short wheelbase (14.125" compared to the 14.38"). The board pops quicker and is easier to flip/shove. I only have a couple sessions on it so far but as of now I feel that the board is a little too short.

I'd just committed to the 8.25" B2 baker shape (deep concave and 'squared' nose and tail) - the new 'stacked' series is 31.875", old stacked series is 32.125 or some shit (prefer the shorter shape) but man the dlx 8.25" shorter@32" full is so good...if they make them for the next drop, those of you on the full-train will love them....still wish they'd make that 8.25" shape (usually krooked) that has the slightly longer wb and isn't point in a full.

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.

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....

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.

My favorite board of all time is a Julien Stranger from about 4 years ago.  The graphic has a baby sitting in a car seat with pigeons writing on him.  Its called "one eye open" or something along those lines.  It's an 8.38 and has somewhat of a pointy nose.  If someone can tell me if DLX still makes this shape and what boards they are I will order two when i get home.  Thanks!

Post by: 144p on July 24, 2017, 04:30:56 PM
Sounds like the typical 8.38 they use often, but knowing the other measurements like length and wheelbase usually helps narrow that down.

Some of their 8.25 have a 14.25 wheelbase, but the navy eagle 8.5 always has a 14.25 WB as well as their 8.28 x31.65.

There's three now:

Regular 8.25"x32" with a 14.38" wheelbase; it's not a common one, seems to be used more in the Krooked lineup than R/AH
New Full 8.25"x32" with a 14.25" wheelbase
OG Full 8.25x32.2" with a 14.5" wheelbase

Really hoping for the a full with the 'mid' WB...and the 8.18" full got pushed to 32"

8.25x31.84x14.38 - is that too much to ask ANY manufacturer to make? Creature atleast has the 8.2x31.9x14.375

Just bought and started skating a fairly new Anti Hero
full shape 8.5 board. It has a more squared out nose and tail
similar to the FA camp boards but with more of a mellow concave.
Overall a solid shape.

The board prior to the full shape I skated was an Anti Hero 9.2 Cardiel Oro shaped board.
I compared it to a Girl CK Phawt shape deck (that fuckin snapped the first day)
and the two shapes were practically identical.
I absolutely loved the shape and overall quality of the board.
Ended up masking off everything else but the horseshoe on the graphic
and painted it black. Decided to retire the deck due to hefty stress cracks and ended up
hanging it on my wall.

The Roman Numerals represent the position of the decks in the mold (we press four at a time).
Number I is on the top and will have a bit steeper concave, and IV is on the bottom and will be a bit mellower.

I'm riding a Justin Brock full shape and loving it. It's 8.06 x 31.91 with a 14.44 wheelbase. There was an 8.18 shape some years ago that felt somewhat similar, not as narrow nose & tail as the usual Real shapes and I rode a whole bunch of those.

This is a beautiful skateboard I'm skating right now. These full shapes are definitely a good move on DLX's part.

Yes. They typically don't press different sized boards on the same press. And the difference in concave with DLX boards is much more minimal than a lot of companies. I've got a I and an IV and the I is barely more steep than the IV.

but I'm still traumatized by the shit quality of the last one.

Antihero classic eagle navy (8.5")? :D

It's funny you say that, I'm skating the 8.5 navy right now.
Just ordered the white 8.75.

Isn't the navy classic eagle the board he mostly skates?

How does the 8.18 x 31.84 full shape compare to the 8.06 x 31.5 shape on Krookeds? Some websites list the length as 32... the wheelbase should be the same, are the nose/tail shorter, steeper, what?

Post by: rlang on September 07, 2017, 04:52:20 PM
8.18"x31.84" so few models use this, one of my favs if not THE favorite shape.

+1, love this shape. I would also be down for a 8.25 shorty.

Yes please, more of these!

Same.

What's up with DLX WB measuring? I have the 8.5 X 32.5 GT and the sticker on top says 14.38 WB, but...it's actually 14.75. Not a problem because I love the board, just wondering if anybody else has noticed this?

Unfortunately, one side effect of having so many similar shapes (multiple 8.5s etc...) is that they sometimes get mis-stickered at BBS.

So sometimes, a box or two of the 8.5" x 32" with X-wheel base, will get the sticker for the the 8.5" x 32.5" with Y-wheel base.

We are aware of the issue and try to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes minor mistakes are made.

Sorry bros!

Title: Re: DLX Shapes
Post by: 144p on September 08, 2017, 04:35:46 PM
Grosso shape is much longer, if measured flat it's almost 33.25 vs the ba is 32.4.
15 in wb for the grosso vs 14.4 on the ba.
Grossso tail is almost 7 inches and the ba is 6 5/8?
Not the best at reading a tape measure but roughly that's it.

Had that happen to me with Baker a few times, never DLX - it's a bummer, especially if you had to order it on or offline, I'm sitting on wrapped deck I'll probably never ride because of it; hell even SW botches there WB measurements on anything over 14.25.

Just bought and started skating a fairly new Anti Hero
full shape 8.5 board. It has a more squared out nose and tail
similar to the FA camp boards but with more of a mellow concave.
Overall a solid shape.

The board prior to the full shape I skated was an Anti Hero 9.2 Cardiel Oro shaped board.
I compared it to a Girl CK Phawt shape deck (that fuckin snapped the first day)
and the two shapes were practically identical.
I absolutely loved the shape and overall quality of the board.
Ended up masking off everything else but the horseshoe on the graphic
and painted it black. Decided to retire the deck due to hefty stress cracks and ended up
hanging it on my wall.

That Cardiel 9.2 shape is called the huffer. That is the best shape ever!! I wish they made it more often. Crazy that Cory Kennedy skates them so much that girl finally made the shape for him. He gets all tech and gets all tranny on that thing. I wish I had another one.

Hell yeah, that shape is golden. Seems to always sell out
any season they drop. I'm tempted to buy another girl ck board
but I'm still traumatized by the shit quality of the last one.

Antihero classic eagle navy (8.5")? :D

It's funny you say that, I'm skating the 8.5 navy right now.

Yeah in the camp pain video he clearly skates the navy one.
It would be sick if dlx came out with an 8.6 with the same 32.5 14.25 wheelbase
Like the navy.

Looked for, found, and skated this classic football shape by Prime skateboards.
Not a bad shape, the quality of the wood isn't bad at all either.

Got an 8.38 Ishod twin tail for cheap thanks to the shitty bathroom tile graphic, but Im stoked to try it out. The 8.38 Full is my goto standard I try to size up everything else with, and I really liked my last 8.30 twin tail despite some slightly smaller dimensions.

From what I can find online, the length & wheelbase are the same as the 8.38, and maybe the ends are like a hair longer. They have a sticker on the shrink wrap that shows the exact dimensions so if you can find one in person you'll be able to know for sure

The 8.25" full feels like an 8.3" to me but without the longer WB I desire. By that logic an 8.18 might feel like an 8.25 but with the longer WB. I missed out on the SW DD sale when they had the 8.18 full up.

I went to a local for new wheels (nothing I wanted) and caved on the 8.18 full walker. Gripped, it really does feel like a regular 8.25" (it feels/looks bigger than the 8.25" foundation I was riding (too mellow and had a weird nose shape, really narrow halfway but not pointy) but smaller than the 8.25" full which feels like an 8.38.

I stepped up to 169s  because only dudes with daddy issues ride under 9". I'd like to see like a 9.25" popsicle.
9.5" popsicle. but keep the body of the board similar to the 8.6, mellow flat, the future of skating is NO grinds, No flips.

@Lenny

So dlx boards are stamped on top at the front truck with roman numerals about where in the stack the board was pressed?

I have 2 krooked boards, same model, a I and a IV. They are identical in concave and tail steepness. The only difference I can see and feel is the I has a steeper nose. Is I the top of the stack? Or the bottom? I feel like it's from the top of the stack.
Title: Re: DLX Shapes

The difference is not huge, but there definitely is something there for the super-shape-nerds to take into consideration ;)

Nope, your dicks are safe.

We use a special bevel that is specifically designed to NOT cut off dicks.

Hey DLXSF-

Any chance on making a shorter (<32") slick with a super short wheelbase e.g. 14-14.1?  I'm loving my past 3 Reals -  2 Ishod high performance 8.1 and a Walker 8.1 - and would love to ride slicks in this realm...

@Lenny

So dlx boards are stamped on top at the front truck with roman numerals about where in the stack the board was pressed?

I have 2 krooked boards, same model, a I and a IV. They are identical in concave and tail steepness. The only difference I can see and feel is the I has a steeper nose. Is I the top of the stack? Or the bottom? I feel like it's from the top of the stack.

IMHO, I is the steepest tail/nose/deepest concave, and IV is the flattest, with II and III being in their respective places.

Curious to know how well the Anti Hero T Mo and Raney square shovel nose decks did. The T Mo 8.4" deck was awesome, and Im always looking for that shape. The 8.5 + sizes that Raney has, are a bit too wide and I'll need to up the size of my trucks for that shape, but I just love that squarish nose.

This thread now has me checking the roman numeral every time I look at DLX decks. Friend picked up a Real the other day and checked and it was a IV. Still has such a nice concave. Wish I had checked what mine was, but I didn't know this stuff when I picked it up.

Friend owns a shop. For the last year or so, any time a DLX shipment came in, we checked the roman numerals and compared them to each others impression of their concave and nose/tail steepness. They was especially interesting when he got multiple of the same decks, but they had different numerals on them. We both determined that (I) was the steepest/deepest, and (IV) was the flattest. Personally, I like (II) and (III) the best. (I) is too steep, and (IV) is too flat...but I still ride them if there is no other option.

No idea if this has a shape name but I just got an 8.5 AH with a 14.38 wheel base and I fucking love it.

Nice, short, wheelbase and it's pretty rounded with medium concave. It just feels like a deck should in my opinion.

Which one?


I rode that deck for all of one day, hate the pointyround nose and tail as I prefer the full shapes....wish they would make fulls that aren't crazy long....not sure why something full/wide needs to be longer than regular boards.

Kinda late to bandwagon as I just now tried Real full 8.06 and I find those awesome.
I like skinnier decks with long wheelbases and and there are not much decks with 14.44 wheelbase under 8 so I opted for Real full and I'm really impressed.
I think I will be using DLX full 8 shape for foreseeable future.

I did skate that deck for a while and loved it, but the rounder tail on the T Mo felt a little better, and the width was just narrow enough to ride Ace 44s. I had to move up to 55s on the Doomsayers. Think it was a 8.6"

I agree with the wheelbase suggestion

Idk what to do with my situation cause I have 2 krooked full shapes with the IV numerals and I usually prefer steeper concave but it really doesnít look all too flat and Iím thinking maybe itíll work if the kicks are supposed to be lower which I like/want for the tail to hit the ground faster like those element flat light shapes

Just wish the wheelbases on these werenít 14.4 for a freaking 8.18 and 8.06 width

If any of the Deluxe dudes are still monitoring this thread...

The 32"x8.25"x14.38" shape (e.g. the same one as the AH Classic "Larger" Eagle)...I'd love to have that exact shape, wheel base, etc, but in an 8.5". All of the normal 8.5" shapes have a much more rounded nose/tail. The 32"x8.25" shape has a slightly squarer nose and less rounded tail...that would be a kick-ass transition deck, IMHO, if it was 8.5". And, please, do not ever stop making that 32"x8.25"x14.38" shape. It's the best shape/dimensions, ever...just add an 8.5" version, please!

Also, what's up with the royal blue 8.5" eagle? I always see that with a sticker that says "8.5" but it NEVER lists the other dimensions (length & wheel base) like every other Deluxe deck sticker does. I've also noticed that the blue eagle seem to sometimes be different length and wheel base dimensions (e.g. they are not always the same). This does not seem to happen with any of the other eagle decks. What's up with that? It seems odd.

Yeah I have that blue eagle 8.5 as my cruiser deck cause I thought I was a big boy a year ago but nah, itís fun but after 10 min Iím out of jumps. Mine feels pretty good though for an 8.5, I think 32 Forsure and the wheelbase is actually short, like 14.12 I think and it has a full looking shape(full to the rounded nose and tail) thatís the kind of dimension and shape I would of loved for my 8.06 and 8.18 krooked but I guess kids are getting taller these days and need more leg room

^ Yeah, that's the weird thing with the 8.5" eagle. Some have a 14.1" wheel base, and are like 31.8" long. Others have 14.38" wheel base and are 32" (like the one I currently have), and others are 32.5' with a 14.25" wheel base. All over the place. They are also not a true 8.5" width. They come in at like 8.375"/8.4".

True!!! It didnít fit my thunder 149 flush, it was hot dogging a bit much

And I started to think itís proably actually a 8.38

Itís a really good board and I wish it was just smaller, the concave, kicks, and all are almost perfect classic old deluxe the way I liked it but close enough as a good cruiser that works like a regular board for my lazy long distance trips to a friends or whatever

There is the blue painted graphic thatís usually 31.8 long but there is a blue stained version thatís more standard 8.5 32 long

The Real heavyweight 8.38 I'm skating has lasted a lot longer with better pop than the Antihero decks I've skated. I only wish they had a full heavyweight 8.475 x 31 14" wb with the Antihero concave. It wouldn't hurt to add at least one x-band ply in their regular construction decks for longevity and pop purposes.

If they brought back and gave the 8.5 blue eagle the full shape treatment, that would be the dream! Also switching to Aces has definitely helped shortening the wheelbase on longer decks IMO.

The full shapes are rad, but they are too long for me. I find 32Ē to be perfect. Once itís over 32Ē, it starts feeling longboard-ish, and my stance feels awkwardly wide. That said, a slightly fuller nose/tail on the standard dimensions would be interesting.

I have a 8.25x32 full SE right now, but the 14.25 wb is killing my skating a lil, 14.38 would have been perfect, coming from a 8.38x32x14.5, some tricks like nollie flip backs are clean landing but flip backs are just weirds, maybe a full normal shape is the answer

Creature makes the dims but it's not a full - ever since they switched up shapes due to new people at NHS, creature became pointyish and lost the wide fat noses.. I can't find any board co. that makes and exact one; they're also koooky...the 8.3x32" have a 14.5" WB yet the 8.5"x32.04 have a 14.375 just like the 8.25s...wtf logic is that?

Every now and again Creature will put out the old dims, haven't picked one up to see if it still uses the old shape.

LENGTH 31.9 in
WIDTH 8.2 in
WHEELBASE 14.353 in
NOSE LENGTH 6.75 in
TAIL LENGTH 6.625 in


The powell flight 8.5s are as close as I can find, just a hair over 32, fullish shape (more fat and round but close enough); powell used to make an 8.25 with a 14.375 WB and it was just a hair under 32" but they're all 32.5".

I'm skating one now, it's not as full as I'd like or as a real full but it will have to do until Real puts out a [seeminbly random] Full/dimension combo that I like...the 8.38 full with the giant wheelbase is the exact reason why the 8.25 SE came to be, the masses don't want massive WBs...

Can anyone from DLX confirm if Ishod actually skates that shape/size on the regular? A lot of the time it looks like he just skates normal logo boards but the shapes do kinda look like the twintails

He skates them!

We make him a special slick one with the Oval Logo that he likes.
Twin tail shape is bomb, the twin tail slick is amazing. Skated both and loved them.

It was cool hearing Ishod (9 club show) discuss his setup and riding the symmetrical shaped deck.

Do they all know something we don't and the dimensions don't work or something?

Seriously. Why make a 32.62", or an 8.62"x32.56", or a 8.06x31.97" (all current AH decks)? WTF is the logic in those numbers? Almost seems like computer generated ratios or something. It's bewildering how those numbers were arrived at. I'd love for someone to explain it.


I like those sizes but...


I seem to remember a guy who had compiled a list of the major board companies measuring techniques. Some used a flat yardstick, others let a tape measure follow the contour of the deck (pretty sure DLX was the latter).

Maybe a number like 32.56 is simply a contour measure of a board that is essentially 32" tip to tip?

Just got a board with a short wheelbase (14") since I'm short.  And it rules. I really like the twin tails, any chance there would be a twin tail with a smaller wheelbase? Or just boards with that small of a wheelbase?

How do you need a wheelbase smaller than 14Ē

He doesn't mean a WB smaller than 14" but a twin tail with a small, i.e., 14" WB.

Other than Creature and Real the Twin Tails are hardly made, Plan B does one on occasion and it does have a small WB compared to the REAL/Creature

Is the Ishod twin tail 8.38Ē or 8.5Ē coming back? Iím having a hard time finding even the usual 8.3Ē but I think Iíd prefer the bigger ones myself.

Iím in Finland but willing to buy online all over Europe. Canít find the 8.38Ē or the 8.5Ē anywhere.  :-\

Do the Real regular 8.38ís (not full) have a wider nose than antihero and Krooked?  I got a Krooked 8.38Ē that seemed too tapered.  The 8.38Ē full I had was TOO wide.  Now Iím on a Krooked 8.25Ē full.

I think the weird length measurements can come from different nose/tail dimensions, if DLX measures tip to tip without contour. Steeper noses/tails would make for a shorter measured length without the contour.

I picked up an 8.25 ishod twin and I like it.....

Pros: two tails means it lasts longer for me.  I've always just shuv' d off my nose which makes doing lines complicated....this cures that.  A lot of tricks the shorter nose helps ie switch front 3's.?  The shorter nose at least mentally makes the board feel a bit lighter because you aren't swinging around this huge front end. 

Cons: I wiff nollie tricks.....as expected I need a bit of help which a longer nose helps with.  Hopefully I'll get used to it.  The boards are not easy to come by too but it's made me rethink nose size....

It would be sick if real did not just ishods boards but maybe some ovals too....just get more of them out there...

I really want one, I was fan of the Mystery Symetry boards from about 5 years ago (they were very full as they were essentially twin noses, not tails.

If DLX would make them in fulls I'd ride the 8.3s until they stopped making them as it's the exact dims I like to ride.

Just gotta go stand on them.  My crude logic that I've used since 1997 is to put them on the floor and assess by seeing how easy it is to balance a nose manual, then crouch down in ollie position and see if the concave puts pressure in any direction that pitches me off my center line, and then blindly position my rear foot on the tail and see where it puts for scooping and popping.  That covers how I would skate it and how natural it would feel shifting my feet into all positions.  Not super precise since the trucks aren't on it, but much easier than nerding out on dims, getting a deck, and realizing it doesn't skate how you'd think.

Since my "return" to skating, I have gone through a Four Pillars Anderson and Eagle with the same dimensions...definitely an all day vape on both of those.

What is the "full shape"? I am about to get a new deck and saw that as an option.

Post by: Brad Breath on June 03, 2018, 02:35:26 PM
Full shapes maintain their width through the nose and tail.  They donít taper.
