Title: Big Boards 9"+( I wanna hear big boys talk about their big boards)
Post by: Chippedwood on November 16, 2017, 03:33:15 PM
I'm getting older and although i do like to spend about 30 minutes a year on a board in the 8" range and rode a 8.6-8.75 for awhile, I find that once they are broken in they feel too small. I got a scram earth ski 9.5" troll deck with 169s and 54mm oj ditch witch. nice and low and after riding 149s and 159s for a decade a decided to size up and they feel great. Chico Brenes borrowed my board at les skatepark and rode it for awhile complementing the pop and he really liked the feel, his 8.75 was nice and light but still felt a lil skinny, 149s on the shaped 8.75 chocolate deck with 52mm spitfires. I got some 9"-9.25" popsicle and shaped decks ready to grip but I'm holding onto this scram deck as long as I can. wide decks seem to save my feet and yeah you should ride a board you have fun on, what big deck are you working with?

I am riding a polar 1991 shape that is 9.25 wide with indy 169s and 56mm formula 4s. I have been really enjoying it

Im skating the Polar Dane1 (9.75) shape with some ace 66's n 56mm orbs.
Been feeling too trendy lately, but its a fun one to skate for sure, still got all the tricks I want but haven't been learning too many new ones on flat. I'm more into skating the half-pipe at my local park n can't say its been holding me back at all. One big boy board I really want to skate again is a Santa Cruz Dressen Tribal, had one set up last year and it skated great, really hoping they re-issue it again soon!

Running a Gabriel Rodriguez 9.875 x 31.9
With hollow 169s and 53mm radials. Definitely feel the need to size up in wheel size.
I like the extra space and the more manageable wheelbase

  I've been (back) on the 9 wides since the late 90s.  I've had some 10s sprinkled in there.  I hate big boards with tons of concave and kick tail.   I'm gonna design a egg/football shape that's 11 in the middle but tapers alot on both ends. (I think mabye the wide in the middle might be good for back 3s or big spins, it will certainly look funny) There's a custom deck company on the internet that does the concave and everything to your spec, so I'm gonna order a board from them.

15Ē Wheelbase x 9 3/16Ē x 32 1/4Ē
This setup's a beauty. Got it for 60 bucks, came with 86a Paradise cruiser wheels and some ace 44's. The trucks are a bit too narrow but they line up well enough that I don't feel too squirrelly. It's my first dedicated cruiser board, and I have a blast rolling through town on it. The wheels are soft but not too soft.

Right now I'm on an 8.75" with 15.5" WB and ace 55's, but I recently switched over from this bad boy that I'm probably going to reset-up with my aces

Flip Lance Mountain Brigadier deck 9.5" x 32.78" with 15.25" wheelbase with wheel wells
Indy 169's
60 MM Bones SPF (not pictured obviously)
Bones Swiss bearings


It's super comfortable in big bowls and has a steep concave with square tail. Wheel wells were perfectly placed as you can see with my burn marks, never got thrown off due to wheel bite either. I'd highly recommend this deck if you can find it/

I haven't skated the same shape in the last few months. Lately, I've been riding a Pete's Pig 101/8 X 32.5 It's a great board, sort of a boat but a really fun time. Tailblocks like a dream. If you haven't heard of Pete's stuff check it out @petespigs. Before the Pig I was riding a Mark Gonzales X Jason Lee Prime Heritage board 9.5 X 31.5 I had an awesome time riding this board, it's based on a Gonz shape from the 90s and it's great for both street and transition. For Bowie fans, the graphic makes more a great wall board. Before the Prime board, I was riding a Scram Leaf board 10x30.375 Felt like Chris Cope riding this board, except for the fact that I can't Invert haha.

I think he skates a 9 inch vato with 149s and conical fulls. I could be wrong, I just noticed the same reoccurring setup in chronicles 3

  Yo man.  What's up with the tails on the petespigs?  I hate steepness!  I hate very much concave too.  I looked on the site but like most skate sites there is no photos of the kick tail angle.

Great Setups everyone!!!!!!
I'm kinda interested in the overhang convo, I've heard more people doing underhang (bigger trucks than deck) I have some 149s' (8.50) indys on a 9.25 deck, the overhang is kinda nice, planned on putting cruiser wheels on it but I'm lazy, just left the 58mm spitfire classics, board feels really good and turns super well if you lean into that extra wood, but the skinner truck scares me on grinds sometimes if I think about it. flips well and kinda leans out of primos, ever smoked primos? that shit was fucked

Yeah his current set ups are usually what you said. I remember seeing images of him on the Brigadier deck and I thought he was running 169's on those.

my big 10 inch fuck-around board. 215s, oj 55s and risers.
It's a 14" wheelbase so it skates like a fat, sluggish popsicle.

Iím on the Santa Cruz Primeval Winkowski at the moment, 10.34x30.54 on some 169s and 60mms and itís been the best board Iíve ever had. Thereís no way I could go back to a popsicle. Cruising is so much easier with this board. Wider turns and more stability makes it way more fun. Iíve never been good at flip tricks so I quit on those and have been on pools, bowls, slappies exclusively and Iíve never had more fun in all my 10 years of skating.  ;D

    Originally the indy 169 had a 9.5 inch axle and the 159 had the 9 inch.  Now the 169s indy produces are only 9 inches wide.  215's are fuckin useless so if you want a wide truck the biggest is the 9 which is wack for a full sized 10 inch board.  ACE 66's are 9.5 but they bend.  Indy if you're out there make a real 169 thank you.

  Yah I know that but felt that 0.125 wasn't worth mentioning, it's only 1/5 of the way to 9.5.   Ace 66s are 9.5 like old 169s but I'm hard pressed to buy those again cause they bend.  It was nicer to have that width tho.  -perfect chill.

They look good and skate good. I had to swap insoles for some FP Gamechangers and run a pair for work that 6+ months in are barely having any issues. I feel like you may not even need laces sometimes. Just a good shoe overall.

I rode a lot of creature 9" popcicle boards for a few years and I still have a 10" shaped creature deck I like to screw around on but lately I've been riding antio hero 9" popcicles and krooked 8.75 full shape popcicles. The creatures have a steeper nose and tail and more concave but I like the more mellow dlx shapes.

I had one when it first came out a few years ago with the Zapatista on it, I was running 159s or ace 55s... BMC probably remembers better than I do.


Actually I started on 159s but went with 55s in the end on it. It was a comfortable ride, just kind of long.

Going bigger has been a slippery slope for me.  I do the same 6-7 tricks on any setup but they all feel better on bigger boards.  Once I go up, I just can't size back down.  Right now I'm on a 10.34 Winkowski with Ace 55's and I'm having a blast on it

I say just do it! (if you've got some extra cash). I've gotten to the point now where all I think about with my set ups is how fun they'll be to skate. I'm not suddenly gonna be able to 360 flip to blunt just because I'm riding a 8.5 instead of an 8.38 lol.

I have an 8.0 inch setup that's super fun even though its way too short for me. My 8.62 that's the "right" size gets boring.

I finally got around to skating the Pinkish Baker thatís 9 in wide. I think the WB is like 14.4 so it doesnít skate too long. Doesnít have much taper at all, The nose is super full, and the tail is squared and pretty big as well. Not as big as the BA shape but close. I really like it and would recommend it for anyone who wants a big setup but likes shorter WBs. Iím using 159 Indy TiTs and threw my wayward 52 slims on it.

I'm contemplating buying the BA 9.25 shape. Should I get 159's or 169's for it? Any suggestions?  :)

id go 169, but I cant remember if that shape tapers at the back truck enough for some hot rodding to occur. either way, i guess im just biased. i own both 159 and 169, but havent skated the 59's as much.

Either will work but BA and @tangar both ride 159's on it so that's good enough for me

Yea I like the 159 Titaniums on it. Having such a big board be so light is awesome. My other setup has 149s so it doesnít feel too weird going back and forth.

polar 1991 shape
9.25 tapers to 8.75.
indy 159 stock
stf v5 55
reds

i set this up a few weeks ago but ive only gotten to skate it once because ive been sick.
my previous setup was an 8 so this is quite a change but after the first session dealing with new
trucks was the biggest issue so i think its going to end up really fun.

krooked roost 9.56
indy 215s

You get super wheelbite with these 215s unless you crank them down, use risers, or harder bushings.

I like it so much that I bought a second one for a backup.  It really doesnt feel big at all but the extra room for foot placement is awesome.  Unfortunately I've been out of commission due to a mountain biking crash and haven't had much time on it the last week

Thanks for the quick response, sounds like a pretty fun size/shape. Sucks to hear about you crashing, I hope it is not too bad and that you'll be back on board soon.

Definitely go with 169s. They fit perfectly with the 56mm conical full spits I have on it. You could go with a much thinner wheel and it would still be great.

Just set this up today: Skaterbuilt OG Pig (12x34, 17wb), Ace 66's with Krux cushions and Khiro soft pivot cups, 65mm 96a Powerflex 5 wheels with Black Panthers, 3/4" risers. Gonna put rails on next week. Fast as hell, the Aces combined with the hella high risers makes for incredibly deep turns. Super fun addition to the quiver.

Hard to read you there. The board is weird but fun. I'm not jumping down anything or flipping anything anymore and really like riding big (10"+ boards). I have a cruiser and a pool board that are both 9.25" but that's about as small as I like nowadays. re: the risers, I don't want to deal with wheel bite but I like big wheels and loose trucks, and I'm not small (6'2, 225).

No disrespect intended! It's just a really unique setup. It's like a guy with no arms and no legs playing soccer.. I just have to stare. No judgement, it's just interesting.

it is! Chuck Hults makes boards with big wheelbases, even if theyíre shorter: iíve got his Killdozer deck, which is 11"x 30 7/8" with 16 3/4"wb. A blast for slappies and pool carving, especially. The Dogtown Big Foot is around the same, 17wb and about 12x31. Those big wheelbases are something iíve only been trying out in the last six months or so, but Iíve always liked around 15.5wb as a minimum.

I think this board is 9.25". I can't really do flip tricks as it is but I think wheel size is more of a factor for me than deck width.

Finally took this thing out yesterday, skated awesome. Im a little afraid of rolling my ankle off the front but whatever. Tricks felt fine even with the long ass WB. I think the short length negates it. Landed some kickflips, front shoves switch and reg, and even landed a slappy noseslide.

Been on 8.5Ē for a while with indy 149s, want to move up to an 8.75Ē or a 9Ē. Can I counteract the overhang with some extra washers and big conical wheels? I would love to not buy new trucks.

Post by: GardenSkater77 on April 12, 2018, 05:07:58 PM
I am beginning to think 149 is too small for 8.5. I think you need 169 for a 9 inch and no smaller than 159 for 8.75. Spacers only push the wheels out .125 inches per wheel, so really 149 with inside spacers is ideal for an 8.25 deck. Up to you but I have been playing around of late and lurking hard in trucks thread. You could get ace 55 also.

No extra washers just one per wheel, everything is flush with the deck.

I really would like to find more big & short boards to skate. Been skating a lot of the Polar Dane shape and also had one Prime Woods Dune board. Which companies make boards over 9" wide and under 32" long?
Theories has one shape called The Delivery Board that looks pretty good, anyone skated it?

Currently riding:

Dane1 Polar 9,72"
Ace 55's with Bones Mediums
Krooked Risers
56mm Spitfire Classics with Bronson bearings

Check out the Deckcrafters Killdozer/Sharkdozer (same shape/different graphic: 11x 30 7/8, 16.75wb), Blue Haven Pool Cue Snub (10x30, 15.5 and 16.25wb), Double Double (9.25x31.75, 14wb).

Also the Dogtown Bigfoot and Bigfoot II.

3 over 9 set-ups

A) Cruiser
     Earthwing Thruster 9.5x36
     Bear Trucks
     Powell ATFs

Best feeling concave on a cruiser/downhill I’ve ever felt. Perfect pockets. Only problem is that it was really warped, I had to screw 2x4s and weight it for a couple weeks to get rid of it. But it was really cheap.

B) pool/tranny
     Powell Flight 9.26x32
     Indy 169 stage 10
     Bones Laseks SPF

Indestructible, and fun on street too.

C) old-school
