I think Anti-Hero does for the shovelheads and some of the barney boards. DLX also has 8.4”

There’s a whole thread on set-ups, by the way.
i was not vaccinated as a child and i turned out fine.

No.  I've seen a lot of 8.46923 boards lately, but 8.475 seems to be played out.

If only there were a size .6mm bigger (8.5") that was widely available

I remember seeing an 8.475 magenta in a shop back in 2015 maybe 2016 and thinking it was peculiar size I never heard of before. As a skateboarder I understand being finicky and the heart wants what the heart wants. I have absolutely no idea who makes an 8.475 right now but I wish you the best.

Yeah, try Magenta. They used to have 8.4s in every drop.

my butler handles my setup needs and shared a lil tidbit that, within woodshops, most 8.38 are exactly the same as 8.5 when you hold em up against each other.

Those weird board sizes are strictly for marketing. Just like 8.06 is an 8.. But anti hero is probably your best bet, new yogurts are 8.45, jalopi has an 8.4 aswell

Doomsayers “shorty” is kinda cool.  8.4 X 31.5 with 14.00 wheelbase.  Good gateway big board for me because it skates like a smaller board in a lot of ways.  Still not getting rid of my 8” setup tho.
